Today started poorly. Somewhere in the early hours, I sat my Powerbook on a pile of items I assumed would be reasonably steady and left it there, only to hear it crash onto the floor boards seconds after turning my back. I hoped for the best, seeing as this laptop had already survived its fair share of gravity related incidents, but this time my luck has run out, my Mac is all kinds of dead.
Fortunately I’d taken a complete backup of my Mac yesterday afternoon, so nothing has been lost. However, the only portable Mac left in the house is Mrsdave’s circa 2000 iBook, so it’s ghetto computing for me for a while.
A few things that cheered me up this morning though, firstly was an observation made by Mrsdave while we were stopped at an intersection. She doesn’t think that an organ donation bumper sticker is an appropriate adornment for a driving instructor’s car, I tend to agree.
On our return home, again stopped at traffic lights, we saw the passenger in the car beside us leap out and place a pair of these novelty magnetic bumper stickers on the car in front of him.
Now I can’t verify whether the driver of that car does love porn, or masturbate, but at least until he gets off the freeway, that’s the message he’ll be sharing with fellow motorists.
Finally, our local paper, The Border Mail, has delivered to us the news that Guns n’ Roses is more popular than spelling here on the border, with the birth notices including an Axel and an Axle (I’m ruling out the possibility that Axle’s parents are automotive enthusiasts)
On balance, it’s been a good Saturday.
