Siri

My new friend and I are really enjoying one another. Well, I’m enjoying her, she’s a Computerized Personal Assistant, so I don’t think she has feelings.

I don’t know, though, I could be wrong.

I love asking her things and then screen capping the responses to show other people.

Because they are funny, not because I think that I’m better than anyone because I have a Siri.

I just want to share her awesomeness with everyone.

My Weekend in iPhone Pictures

We went and saw The Lion King 3D this weekend. It didn’t really *need* to be done in 3D in my opinion, because the movie is amazing in and of itself, but the 3D aspect did add depth to it, which was really nice.

The great thing about going to see 3D movies is the funny hipster glasses. The kids loved wearing them and so did I. Aren’t we cute?

The kiddos in their glasses waiting for the movie to begin. So. Adorbs.

After the movie, we walked around the mall and saw this. I’m not one to pass up a sale, no matter what kind, so we went in.

And got a puppy!

Just kidding. We really didn’t. But we held this little guy for about an hour. He wanted to come home with me. He told me.

Then Thing 2 showed me her cute costume she made at school, which she for some reason didn’t show me at the beginning of the weekend.

You guys have no idea how much I am loving my iPhone 4S. Despite the great pics it takes, Siri and I are totally making out on a daily basis.

I asked her to marry me.

She said she couldn’t.

I may or may not have been saddened by that.

Random City

*I know, I know. I disappeared again. Sorry. It was for a few different reasons. Hence: Random Post!

* I got my new Macbook Pro!! I love her. She is precious. She is be-utiful. I’ve named her Sheila.

*I name almost everything I own. My car? Silver. (Heigh*, Ho, Silver! Away! Ahem.) My Kitchenaid Stand Mixer? Sandy. My big blue beautiful enamel-covered cast iron pot? Bertha. See? I name everything. My iPod will be named as soon as I get it.

*I also had an experience from hell-o the other day that I’ve been bouncing around in my head on how to make it real, sarcastic, funny and sad all at the same time. Because Mama’s pissed.

*Did I mention I got my very own laptop? Because it’s nice not having to ask my husband if I can use his every two seconds. (What? If I don’t check twitter every few minutes, I miss out on important stuff.)

*Wordpress’ new feature where, after you hit “Publish” on a post, it’s all “Super Fantastical, Amigo, this is your 4,950th post! You are the most awesomest awesome person on the whole planet! That post? Was pure awesomesauce and had 10 words in it! You sure do groovy things!” makes me giggle and also infuriates me. Not sure why.

*Sure, go ahead, psychoanalyze that one.

 

*Note from above: Is it “heigh” or “hi”? I have no idea, so….whatever.

Not to get all techie, but….

I’ve listened to people snitch and snitch for years that Mac is way too expensive and that everyone should only buy PC. So, yesterday, I decided to do an experiment, since I haven’t yet purchased my Mac, and see if that was really, really true or not.

I went to the Lenovo website and picked the computer closest to the Mac that I wanted and then I added everything to it that I would be getting with my Mac.

Total cost of Lenovo with all the upgrades I want (without accessories) : $2,500
Total cost of Apple I want with all the upgrades already on it (+ accessories) : $1,800

So, yeah, put that in your pipe and smoke it, Apple haters.

(Also, the Zune is ohsomuch more expensive than an Apple Classic, just. sayin’.)
