Sigh. Guess which one I am?
I used to love those "Hi. I'm a Mac" commercials.
The I'm A Mac guy is a cutie-patootie, so I kind of felt like I was somehow cool to be associated with him by owning a Mac. You know, the kind that rarely, if ever, are affected by those nasty viruses floating around. To further fuel my delusions of coolness, I also just recently discovered Facebook, and was having fun over there...I always thought I was too old for Facebook (or "FB", as we regulars call it) but I seem to be fitting in nicely! I even post more than my ultra cool, 24 year old niece. And my also ultra cool 22 year old nephew signed up after I did...probably copying me! Of course, he still hasn't responded to my friendship request... hmmmm. How you say... WTF???
Well, come to find out, I'm as uncool as I originally suspected. I guess Mac ain't exactly interested in middle-aged women, cuz mine up and left me! Yep, crashed Saturday and we got the bad news today - the relationship with this particular Mac, my beloved G5, is over. He's gone. He's never coming back. Like my brother-in-law said of Johnny Damon when he signed with the Yankees, "He's dead to me".
I'm going to wheel PC to the nearest pub to drown my sorrows (and complain that I have no idea when I will be able to update my blog again, since all my photos are on a back up file that I have nothing to restore to at the moment). PC and I have always remained friends, co-workers even, so who knows where this will go.
We will be looking at the newer Macs this weekend.... then again, PC is certainly a cheaper date, and now that I'm looking at him, he's kinda cute! ;) Besides, for my little blog, my recipes and family photos, what do I need with a hot looking, fully loaded, fun loving Mac? Maybe me and PC are meant to be together...
Unless, of course, the new Mac looks like this....
In that case, I'll be seeing you at the office, PC!
(Note to self: While computerless, GO TO GYM. This new Mac looks pretty hot - don't want him to lose interest if he does indeed move in with us)
So folks, if you don't see me around much in the next few days, you now know why! I can't access FB at work, and can only do quickie little updates on my blog from there...but rest assured, I will be lurking and keeping my eye on you!
Have fun! And wish me luck! ;)
