let me consult my friends for life calendar

i spent my whole weekend with colls. she is the best hostess ever. she offered to pick me up from the airport. albeit the wrong airport.


when i drove into town i found my old room all made up for me with this my little pony prize and my favorite frog quilt.


and dont forget the reading material she left by my bed. she knows how much i love those russians.


and the picture of my little brother was a nice personal touch. i cut off the picture of Christ's head because it felt weird to put it in but now i think its weird that i cropped it.

anyway i have a mac computer. whatever. but one thing i noticed (and thought was a computer flaw) and called mac to consult about (and they didnt mention it was normal) and even took to the store (where they were incredibly unhelpful) is that july 17th is ALWAYS on the calendar. always. its not a computer bug at all. i mean there are a couple of things that call for accuracy as a rule. clocks, calendars, reality, etc. basically i have been looking at july 17 for six months. so tomorrow is finally july 17 and for one day my calendar will display the right day. but the joke is that i have gotten used to july 17 always being the wrong day so i will look at it tomorrow and think i wonder what day it is...

i really like that you tied your visit with me into july 17th.
i was wondering which russian novel you enjoyed the most?
i am sorry i didn't draw a bath for you and light candles. i didn't want to freak you out.
how's your pony? tell her hi.

your pony says hi back. she says she misses the spiders in your bed.

Good job on having a Mac. The iCal Jul 17th thing bugs me too. I have my iCal start up automatically and hide when I log in. Then the date is correct when I look at it in the dock. (The date on the dock icon changes when the program is running.) Yeah, that's how anal I am.

mac is really pushing it with me. one more shitty ad campaign and i am out. and i am being serious mac. (not really i am way too lazy to actually sell my computer and get a new one)but i am now boycotting ipods.

Colls said...

these iCals sound stressful. i rely soley on my free "healthy food ideas" calendar from albertsons.
don't sell your mac. he's cute.

i love that damn music they have for the iphone commercials. i feel myself getting sucked in and it takes everything i have to get out. bravo marketing department for iphones.

Colls said...

yeah we did a killer job with the marketing didn't we.

punk rock girl said...

will you devote your time to marketing me already.

Seth said...

If you want her to market you it might help if you play music, movies and make phone calls à la the iPhone. Shiny and sleek might help too. Just sayin'.

punk rock girl said...

haha. i personally think the iphone is a trick but i understand if you love it. its a pretty cool trick.

Colls said...

nat do you have an iphone? aren't those expensive? are you selling something after hours that i don't know about?

natali said...

i dont have an iphone. and i wager they are pretty expensive. and are you asking me if i am a prostitute? after hours sells....

Colls said...

i saw another spider in my room. i wish you would have been here to protect me.
but you were out selling your hot bod.
