"We both agreed we would love to make it up there! My job is usually the one that gets in the way. Atlanta can be a weekend trip, but Boston or Chicago would be a bigger commitment. But we would sure love to manage it, and we're going to work on…"

On TARDISES or TARDI or however you spell that.

Ummmmm - the little glass VW Beatle ornament is not a permanent item on the TARDIS console. It was put there temporarily to keep a three year old from playing with it. Also, the figures are not arranged right now. I just got a BUNCH of them for Christmas, so they got thrown in quickly amidst the normal figures set up (again TEMPORARILY) until I got a chance to set them up on the top shelf. It really does look better than that normally! I didn't realize he was going to be showing it during the… Continue

Gene Simmons never had a personal computer growing up.

I made a picture!! It's not great but it'll do! Or at least, it'll do until my graphic designer husband makes me a better one. My first computer was a Tandy. Well, my first computer was a Commodore 64 but all I did on that was play games so it doesn't count. I am amazed thinking back to that old Tandy and its 128K and floppy disks. :)

It was a good computer.
But if I could have had it, though, I'd have gotten a Banana, Jr.

Feels Just Like I'm Posting for the First Time

Apologies to the BareNaked Ladies for messing with their lyrics!





Hello and nice to meet everyone! What do you put in these first posts? I never know. I'm actually not much of a computer person. In fact, I'm practically a neoluddite. Technology does tend to break down around me; my friends say I have a techno-field. I joke about slowly turning into a superhero with the ability to control static electricity (seriously, I somehow manage to collect a lot of it - I would say it's… Continue

Welcome aboard April! So if those other 30 Macs aren't your Macs then who owns them?

Ahhhh....I followed the clues! Given you put up with him and his hobbies, I say you get credit for at least half of those Macs!

The cute ones?

You have to feel sorry for someone that has to deal with someone like James. At least he has managed to show that 150 macs and mac-like objects is not the extreme.

Just be glad he didn't get into home brewing with the same intensity.

I can just see it now: The RetroPlasterCast - They're not old, they're fermenting!

James's wife is patient and kind! She has to put up with even more of a collection than I do. :)

I was afraid I'd gotten that backwards, but you will have a Banana Jr as soon as the feet go on!

At least he didn't have to rely soley on his charm and good looks to get a girl to talk to him.

It really is a cute project.

I loved the Descarte joke on your livejournal site! (There are not many people to whom you can tell that joke). I loved it so much that I stole it and put it on my blog (www.marshallhlewis.net). Sorry, but it made me laugh and laugh.

Thanks for the comment! But, if that is your second favorite joke right now, then what is your first favorite?

I concur, we need joke #1!
