I'm STILL a self confessing, self professing know-it-all, or so I think!

Evander Holy-Shit!!

Still am in disbelief?!?! You are incredible, talk about customer loyalty – an Apple in my eye! Left my iTunes library for dead after my deleting missteps/futile transfer attempts! Wasn’t even the reason for today’s phone call, only wanted to transfer/salvage cds I burned yesterday! I did all my crying last night, was moving forward despite it all … but you were able to retrieve all my songs. Thank you! Funny thing though, this whole transfer thingie WAS WAY WAY harder than even you imagined, gave you plenty (PLENTY) of troubles too … as evidenced by our 2 hour chat – with you having complete shared access to both my computers to boot! No goddamn fucking way laypeople coulda figured that shit out! No way! Am so thrilled as you [other(s) too, lol] intimated that I don’t migrate data! What a fucking mess that woulda been as you said … bringing over all my headaches, my problems … so much redundancy, files piled upon files upon files upon files upon files … woulda brought all that crap over to my brand spanking new iMac! Now that that’s done, cleared away the Mini off my desk (monitor/speakers for now – till you call back Sunday so we can wipe it clean military grade too as you suggested … and since we are, am gonna sell the bitch too, better than sledgehammering as I told ya I was gonna do, lol), so many wires gone – more to go, but looks so (exsqueeze the poor/dark lighting folks – ya get the idea y’all) squeaky-clean! Thank you Evander, will talk Sunday, looking forward to your call!!

new iOS 7

… downloaded iOS 7 yesterday evening. Took 6 hours to complete, thankfully it went off without a hitch. Funny how a new operating system transforms your phone into a completely NEW one. Still up in the air about the 5s … unsure if I’ll upgrade or not even though I’m eligible. My 4 is in incredible shape, 16 GB, and has a gorgeous hand crafted after-market exotic wood back to boot. Unfortunately, the person I was gonna sell it to (at a discounted friend’s price no less, lol) def won’t be buying it. She never knew a good thing anyways … even when she had it! Her loss!

… after midnight – screenshot after downloading. Love the new look! Yep, still kept the same pic – ain’t no quitter … know a good thing when I have (had) it!!

winging it … my first attempt

… and I know what I said, ’bout not clogging the blog, but I couldn’t help myself. I can’t believe how unbelievably simple everything is, even the clean-up … especially the clean-up. And that’s VERY important, nobody would use it if it were a pain in the ass. I read the usage instructions, and used what I had handy in the house. A handful of red grapes, one apple quartered (core & stem, the whole apple), half a frozen banana, and a handful of Europe’s Best 4-Field Berry Mix (blackberries, strawberries, blueberries, raspberries) frozen fruit … oh, and just a bit of milk, maybe 2 oz at most … there you have it (there I had it, lol), my first Vitamix smoothie!!

ain’t no iPhoney

Where do I begin? For once, my giddiness has gotten the better of me … don’t have a clue, am somewhat stumped where to start, lol. But I’ll try. Sorry distracted, digressing … soaking it all in … got a woodie as an alternate post just popped into my head … whaddya think, lol?? Ok here I go, this all started/happened when the iPhone 5 was released, a week later I believe. Innocently placed my iP4 in the cupholder while driving and 20 minutes later when I stopped for gas noticed my glass back was cracked. As God as my witness, I did NOTHING … it JUST cracked. I was heartbroken, and when home taped it preventing further cracking, slapped on a case too … it’s been on ever since, hoping to keep everything tight, not compromising its operation. Let time pass without replacing it only to let the iPhone 5 hoopla pass … have you ever tried shopping at an Apple Store? Yep, nuts. Finally went in and quickly accessed I’d be stuck with the bill replacing it, which isn’t so bad but since I didn’t break it … didn’t drop it … nothing … and was hoping my pleas would fall on big-fat empathetic ears, but fearing they wouldn’t… AND I didn’t want my good luck winning streak, everyone seeing things my way coming to an end … not to mention the earliest Genius Bar appointment available was 2 days away. Are you kidding me? No thanks … fuck you Apple, I’m looking elsewhere, lol!! Eventually my search ended with Monolith … wood is good!! Love their exotics … and after great deliberation, went with the wenge. Placed my order November 29, arrived December 28 … one month later, exactly. Two thoughts; 1: Good things come to those who wait. 2: What the hell took so long? Now, that’s a motherfucking pick em, lol!! 😀
