The One With the Look of Love

Dear iMac,

Have I told you lately how much I love you? I know I am not supposed to love inanimate objects, but let’s face it…you are anything but inanimate! I have been saving files indiscriminately, yet haven’t even occupied two percent of your roomy 640 gigabyte hard disk. Running Logic Studio with more than twenty tracks at a time, you don’t even break a sweat. You escort me through the minefield of the internet as though it is your own personal playground, always shielding my eyes from anything profane or vulgar.

I know you’re watching me, too, because I clicked and you took this picture of me. We like all the same shows on Hulu HD (Battlestar Gallactica, The Closer, 24…did I tell you about my Jack Bauer dream where we were jumping into an empty elevator shaft, suspended from chains…and I woke up with this horrible bruise on my arm…I don’t think it was from the chains, but seriously, where else would it have come from?). We agree on all the important things: (cream cheese frosting does not belong on cinnamon rolls, it’s more important to have a nice piano than a nice car, and having kids is definitely better than having pets). I guess what I’m saying is, BFFs, okay? Love you.
P.S. You look great in silver…all 24 inches of you. Speaking of silver, since you’re so new, we could call you an anniversary present…because you know, DK and I are celebrating 25 in just a week.

I could wax poetic about my sweet little mac laptop too. It's great to meet another mac lover.

I feel left out. I don't have a mac. Is it okay to covet my neighbors mac?

Victoria said...

Aww, Shelby, don't be jealous. Who did I take to youth conference...you or the iMac? Hmmm?

Cherie said...

I feel the same way about my IPhone!! Oh to love technology :D

Congrats on your 25th!!! - We will also celebrate 25 this year in July!

Man, my iMac would love an iPhone to sync up with...they could message each other all afternoon while I'm giving piano and whatnot. They could secretly plot to take over the world. A free year of MobileMe...and there's no synching going on.

that picture is disturbing......just like the statues in downtown RSM..... The statues are 3/4 size of real people and that is just enough to bother me.

You don't like fish-eye photos taken by your computer? ;-)

I'm an Imac lover, too. I just got my first Imac Pro (I think that's the name). I love it but still can't figure out how to take self-picts (like the one you did in this post). I'm a slow learner.
PS: found you on Mormon mommy blogs.

Terresa,
Your new iMac has an application built in called Photobooth...just search for it with the little microscope icon in the upper right corner of your screen:) It takes BEAUTIFUL photos, doesn't it??? ;-)
