I lead a charmed life,.... but last week bit balls.
Remember how I felt a ripple in the force and misinterpreted as a sign I was buying a new guitar? That didn't happen. Instead I lost two friends to substance related overdoses (nothing new there, it's only like my 1000th funeral because of that sh!t), I got two ebay bid cancellation notices, and then the worst thing happened.... My Macbook died.
I spent the whole weekend devoid of computer time. Sure, I have a couple of G5's for music work but they never touch the internet, I have an iPhone but looking at porn (guitar or otherwise) is not nearly as fulfilling on that wack-a-do little touch screen, and I have a PC for god knows why.. but I hate the damn thing so much I just left it in the corner while yelling obscenities at it, so I spent four days without any computer related entertainment.... I didn't realize it would be so hard!
I love to read books, lots of 'em! I enjoy the outdoors (as long as it's a screened in porch or a hot tub) and used to get along quite well without the internet, and I have never been bored a single day in my life, but now I find myself twitching uncontrollably if I can't get a quick fix of computer time. When did this happen? Who have I become? Am I now just another choad who is too busy with electronics to notice the outside world? Argh!
So today I did it, I got married... To a 13" MacBook Pro, and we are in love.
I am ashamed to admit I couldn't last a week without one. My old saying about PRS guitars: "Other guitars are just stupid." has a sister saying: "Apple computers.. of course I have one (or many). What am I?... a heathen?" It makes me feel like such a dork to confess that I feel so much better after a ridiculously lame week, with actual, seriously horrible things that went wrong, by buying a certain brand of a consumer product.
What other brands of stuff are there that you just refuse to live without?
