So this is one of those posts. [A tech one.]
I know, I know, most of you don’t care. But remember: my tag line is “the dichotomous life of a Mac Geek Farm Girl.” To know me is to love me? And Macs are a big slice. I must feed the beast.
I left Lion [...]
Just a quickie to let you know — if you didn’t already — how brilliant I am.
I made an appointment at the genius bar to bring my new Macbook Air in to have the battery looked at, since I couldn’t seem to squeeze more than a couple hours out of it.
I’d googled “Macbook [...]
Crazy times call for crazy measures.
I bought an 11″ Macbook Air last week. I just did it. I researched and backed away. I made the rational decision to “wait.” Then I went back to work.
Then, before I could stop myself, I was researching some more…

This is Minnesota, folks.

This is just a blip on my blog map to sing praises for Apple Macintosh computers.
First, you must understand that I am, indeed, a fanboy (girl). Always have been and always will be. With that out of the way I want to take this opportunity to explain why I finally can stand up with [...]
I researched and obsessed, it’s true. After pulling the trigger, I have small amounts of buyer’s remorse, which is common for me with a high ticket item. Did I really NEED it? Will I really USE it? Is it as GOOD AS the Panasonic Lumix GH1 that I was set on? Time will tell. What [...]

INT. DARK HOUSE – NIGHT
We move from the dark entry toward a light at the back of the house. Another, dimmer, light glows above us, from somewhere upstairs. We enter a warmly lit office & see three screens, two are lit. A blueish light slowly [...]
“Jennie Menke takes Whit Scott’s challenge to enter and win the chance to drive a new Ford Fiesta. She describes herself as “the missing demographic” and laments the fact that — until now — she has been stuck driving a suburban.” So goes the copy I quickly scribbled and posted for all the world [...]
