Apple Store 1, FedTax 0

I’m done with my Immigration Court assignment in Chicago, and so naturally, before catching the 12:35 CST (1:35 EST) bus back to South Bend, I decided to stop by the Apple Store on North Michigan Avenue — my personal mecca — just for fun. Hey, it is my birthday! :) And oh, the temptation to buy myself a present! Surely there’s something modest I could get myself… like, y’know, a 15-inch MacBook Pro, with its awesome built-in webcam… only $2,500!

Heh. Just kidding, Becky. :)

P.S. I tried to post two cell-phone photo posts earlier, but they didn’t upload for some reason. It’s possible they may randomly appear hours or days later. If so, one of them will have the same title as this post, and some of the same content. Oh, well.

    Is the Apple Store inside a gay dance club?

    I think you should buy the laptop now. You are at the farthest point away from an upgrade (since it just occurred last week) and that machine should last pretty long.

    Do it. Go for it. Get back and the train and get that machine!

    No, don’t buy it now: if you wait about 6 months, Apple will put it’s new operating system on all of its computers. Leopard should be coming out spring ’07.

    You could just do one of those “Free Macbook Pro!” sites. That’s how I got mine for about $230.

    Seriously, that is a dang good haircut.

    You would be stupid to buy won. I just correctly identified George Bush, knocked a guy out in boxing, picked the name of Bart Simpson’s mom, and shot a few ducks in a carnival shooting game. So I should be getting 4 new Macs. When I get them I guess I can give you one.

    You would be even more stupid to buy “one.”
