My New Toy

The thing I have been saving several months for is finally here: my Apple iBook with a G4 processor and 14" screen. It is quite sweet! I am looking forward to having the DSL hooked up at home so I can surf the web there instead of having to come up to the church every time I want to use the internet. Marcy is a little concerned that she will become a computer widow, but I don't think so. This computer will come in quite handy when Fitz, Jr. comes along and we are taking pictures and videos left and right. We need to edit and send them somehow, and now we have the way to do it. The iLife software package that it comes with is pretty cool! So, be jealous if you must. I know my friend Oral is already...

Welcome to the light! Hope your iBook came with iLife '06 -- I just spent the $79 for it. Three months after I got my Powerbook. Enjoy, Macs are great computers.

Did I tell you that Danielle's bag broke and her Powerbook fell to it's death?

Congrats Mike! What a great tool.
You deserve it. (this is from Steve, your Mom's husband)

Joke! OJ Simpson was refused entry into a restaurant. They didn't want him in there. He sued, and the restaurant had to pay OJ a token settlement of $500.

The restaurant now has two areas
that are clearly labeled:

MURDERERS NON-MURDERERS

I am so jealous, Mike. Oh and Brian, tell Danielle - sorry that make my gut hurt and it was not even mine.

Allister said...

SHAVE

Fitz said...

You know Allister, the more you and other people (like Claire B.) keep harping on me to shave, my rebellious nature comes out and makes me want to keep the beard for even longer than I was intending to. Who knows, I may keep it forever. Bwahahahahaha!

Emmerly said...

Ya know, I'm getting really tired of hearing how Ally has first dibs every time Baby Fitz is mentioned .. there can be more than one babysitter for them to use ...

Fellow traveler, you have now been fully assimilated into the brotherhood. Repeat now the mantra of the followers of the all-knowing and all-stylish Rev. Jobs "One of us... One of us... One of us!" Try to maintain that vacant-eyed look, and, if possible, purchase a pair of novelty contact lenses with the apple logo on them.

Today's verse, from the book of Jobs:

v1: Steve is my shepherd, I shall not want a second mouse button. He maketh me use fonts that are artistically harmonious. He restoreth my crashed hard drive (for a fee). Yay, though I walk through the valley of non-compatible software, I will fear no duplicate licensing fees. Thy rod and thy staff and thy single-channel supply chain profit margins they bludgeon me. You prepareth a table before me, and maketh me eat with the resource fork. Surely goodness and smugness shall follow me all of the days of my life (or at least until the end of the warranty period.)


Here endeth the parody.

Bitterness, bitterness, it's what I long for /
Bitterness is what I need...

Oral, you talk about smugness, and you've done nothing but put down my purchase since I made it. You have been looking down your nose at it since day one. Well my friend, "I fart in your general direction!"

It's called good natured ribbing, Fitz. PC and Mac users have been doing it since the late Cretaceous period. Now I have a Mac buddy to have fun with, don’t spoil it! :-) (Be confident in your decision, you have a great machine or else I wouldn’t be so rough on ya.)
