Bits and pieces....

I just want to say that

- I love the new Mac

- I love that my kids find spelling and verb conjugating fun.  We sit around sometimes with the Catalan conjugation book and the biggest fattest Webster's we have and spell and recite conjugations.  It is fun too!

I am aware that sounds terribly nerdy, but it is fun.

- I love that I can read with the new electric toothbrush!  Feels like the Jetsons, I just stand there and hold it in place with one hand and the book with the other.  Now if they could just figure out how we could read in the shower.

- I just discovered that the Kindle is available outside the US now.  Uh oh.  Maybe you still need a US bank account....here's hoping.

Watched Buffy the Vampire Slayer, the original '92 movie with Eldest.  First watched it with the man in a hotel in Grand Junction, Colorado. We'd spent the day driving through the surreal countryside there, played mini-putt, I think we ate a wicked steak for dinner, and then watched Buffy.  A memorable day.

You're lucky that they enjoy verb conjugating...because it can be simply awful!

I need a new electric toothbrush.

I'm such a geek and a nerd but I still don't do kindle, any kind of new mac, even having canipshuns trying to get stuff on my ipod. It's a gift when language is fun. Does every one seem to have more hours in the day than me, or is it just my skewed perception?

Sorry, I've never been into that kind of lit or movies so I'm out in the cold as far as Eldest's comment goes. Clue me in? GM

Bath books made of plastic would work in the shower, but the content is a bit limited.

Jason, I count my blessings where I can...

Bodhi, well, you do have a younger child, and as far as I can tell, you're single parenting. I can see how you may lack time, no?

Gm...in their own way, yes.

Eldest, could be..

GM, Buffy was the title character in the movie that sort of started the entire vampire resurgence, and what's his name is the actor who is playing the main character vampire in the twilight series of movies.

elP, another way to make our millions! We should patent these things!

Helen, sadly, I think the content is a little limited. I do recall one with ducks in it. I suppose that makes sense.

I thought I was a reading addict but have yet to read a book while brushing my teeth!
Glad you're loving your Mac...

Beth, gotta grab the chance when it appears!

Not even when your kids were little and they ate up your whole life?
