#374 – The Mac Guy

with 21 comments

Granted, he did have a lot of good information hidden away beneath all those blah blah blahs. And he showcased his website dedicated to…Olympic weightlifting. Yeah, exactly. But either way, it all worked out in the end. I learned that I can type wordy words here and still open them up via Microsoft Word on my PC. So that’s a bonus. It just took forever to get that outta him. But the stretch of time gave Tara and I’s stomachs plenty reason to start growling. Grr. Arghhh. Mrow.

Question of the day: What’s my MacBook’s name? The one that gives me the best answer gets a free drawing…of anything (well, nearly anything; no dinosaur porn) their little heart desires. Drop as many suggestions as you’d like. So get to the name-calling!

So you say I’m better off here
As dry as the shoreline
In an ocean of fear
So you say I can’t be alive
Until there is nothing
When we’re meeting eyes again

  5. ::yawnnn:: ๐Ÿ™‚ Morning!

    Yes that guy was plenty talkative, but yes, I agree, he did have some useful information. Yeah our stomachs were thanking us when we got to dinner…well, maybe not, I guess we’ll have to see ๐Ÿ˜ฎ ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Names? I’ve always been horrible with names
    Hmm…Bender? Smeagol? I was going to say Gandalf too, gandalf the white. I named Marie’s car Gandalf the Grey.
    Hmm…Mortimer? Um…THUNDAR? haha…just kidding. Apollo, tigh, starbuck, boomer…baltar would be nice too.

    Maybe…Radar? Haha. Or you can just disregard everything I’ve mentioned, like I said…bad with names :p

  9. Great names so far, everybody! Keep ’em coming.

    And yes, my laptop is a pristine white, the ivory that balances out the ebony, a pearly brightness that blinds those that gaze upon it, a…yeah, it’s white. ๐Ÿ˜›

  11. I had a good one while at work, but forgot it, and they sent me home early :\ For no reason that they hired too many people and can’t afford to have people stay. (They are stilllll hiring new people though…)

    Anyways, maybe it will come to me during class, but then again the only names to come out of that would be star names, like POLARIS and Sirius, or vega or draco. ::sigh::

    My mac is now in Mac Purgatory to await its fate. I’m sure he will be just fine and I hope they’ll be able to fix him. ๐Ÿ™‚

    “And yes, my laptop is a pristine white, the ivory that balances out the ebony, a pearly brightness that blinds those that gaze upon it, aโ€ฆyeah, itโ€™s white” Ha, you…writer..you.

  13. I feel highly unqualified to even attempt to name Paul’s new computer for some reason…but here goes:

    Pauly Two (or Paulie Two; Paulie II; Paulie 2 – any spelling combination really).
    The Machine! (you must use the exclamation point)
    Beautiful Machine (BM for short)
    The White Witch (maybe it’s a girl)
    The Snow Queen (maybe it’s still a girl)
    The Milky Maiden (maybe it’s still a girl…and it’s kind of gross)
    Blanche (get it?)
    Hemingway (inspiring or daunting…not sure)
    or maybe Fred.

    That’s all I got…

  17. I’m going to say I like “Hemingway”! As odd as it is to say, when I picture Paul’s computer…Hemingway seems to fit really well.

    Hmm…Geddy Lee! :Ahem: Mmmm..Rush…
