(mundane ramblings of nothing particularly exciting)
My eggs over-easy ended up eggs over-hard, no runny yolk goodness for me this morning. Although my cup of Illy-brand coffee is delicious. I will happily shill for the Illy company because they have great coffee. Also, maybe they will ship me some cans if they see I'm writing about them. Illy? Are you reading this? If you had some extra dark French Roast for drip coffee, I'll totally take it off your hands. Did you guys know that the world of illy is not limited to coffee? Rather it's the place where coffee, culture and art come together. It's a passion for excellence that embraces the beauty and art in everyday life - whether it's the pleasure of a perfect espresso, an exquisite painting, an inspired piece of music or writing, or even a blog entry that steals corporate copy from a company's website. i am illy, and illy is me, because i am art.
So I got a MySpace message requesting I update my blog more. I've been MIA trying to figure out what to do with myself. I finished at Gold Rush last Friday and have been running around doing errands this past week and haven't focused on any kind of written activity. That will hopefully change in the next couple weeks. What else? Taking off for Chicago in a few days for Thanksgiving. Can't go wrong with a visit to Chicago.
Ummm...my Treo 650 blues might be over. I exchanged a defective phone for one that appears to work this week and am now text messaging with abandon. My Razr is now collecting dust. Oh, and my Powerbook woes are better as well. If you listen to the podcast you may have learned that I let my year warranty lapse without getting an extended warranty. 4 days after the year warranty expired, my laptop wouldn't boot up properly and the first cost estimate to fix it was $350, which, incidentally, is how much the extended warranty costs. Luckily a Mac genius tried one last test and was able to solve the problem by doing a hard reset. So all my programs etc. were deleted but I saved $350. Ooh, let me plug Apple as well. I dealt with two "Mac geniuses" who both spent 45 minutes to an hour each on troubleshooting with my laptop. They were both helpful and friendly and, in the end, solved the problem without costing me a dime. I even tried to tip they guy $20 but he refused (store policy). I really felt like Apple cared about me. So, Apple, if you want to send me a video ipod or something, feel free.
This was a Swisher ramble. If you've read this far I apologize.
