okay, so as we all know, I got a new computer, a sassy little iMac, and I’m loving it super much. it’s very fast and pretty and shiny and all that. And the monitor is an LCD, something I’ve never had, nor am I used to, but apparently it is allowable for there to be up to 5 dead/burnt/stuck pixels on a screen. Having 5 or less is equal to having zero. It’s “within spec” as I’ve been told, but you know, I dropped a lot of money on this damn computer and I want it perfect.
After going through three iMacs though, I have decided to just keep this fourth one. There is one dead pixel in the upper right corner, whereas on the other screens they were in much more noticeable spots. It isn’t perfect, but I am getting tired of hauling a computer up to the Apple Store every day and having the workers look at me like I’m crazy and anal. I figure I can live with one small pixel up there. It bugs me and I stare at it, but it really is because I’m crazy and anal.
Here’s what I’d like to know: why men think they can come home and spend five minutes with their children and think they have fulfilled their responsbility as a father. Because it really drives me effing crazy. I spend all day and all night with Ryland, and I love it, but I’m only human and I need a break sometimes, a break that lasts longer than five minutes. I don’t want to go anywhere or do anything special. Maybe go take a shower or read for a bit or hell how about just letting me take a shit in peace?
That said, you should know that Ryland is doing the cutest thing right now. He isn’t crawling, but he’s been getting up on his hands and knees and then rocking back and forth, almost like he’s revving up to go. It’s so freaking adorable. He’s also started his first bits of solid food, some rice cereal and peas so far. He doesn’t eat it everyday, but he seems to like it. It certainly doesn’t help him sleep any better at night though, although it seems like every one and their dog told me it would.
okay, now on to other things. How about boys I wish loved me? Okay.
-Zach Braff, the guy from Scrubs and Garden State.
-This guy named Jeffrey Donovan, who just played a serial killer on CSI Miami and used to be on a show called Touching Evil on USA (a show I really liked and am sad they cancelled). Isn’t he yummy?
-Vince Vaughn a tall drink of delicious
-that guy who plays Boone on Lost. He’s a foxy fox.
-and of course t. yorke, always and forever.
um, right now as I was typing this message, I pressed some combination of keys and suddenly all the windows on my desktop did this fancy little maneuver and then I was looking at them all at the same time, tiled neatly on the screen. I have no idea what it was, but it was cool.
here’s a nice thing about having a kid: I never feel lame for not being out on a fri or sat night.
- Look at me!
- I’m obsessed with gravity.
