The past few days & MacBook

On Wednesday night, Tommy and I went to the Reese park, and shovelled some snow off the pond, so we could do some skating. We had a blast, and Tommy has named himself my coach, and is teaching me how to stop etc...



Yesterday, I took Austin to Ann Arbor for some appointments (just regular follow-ups), and everything went pretty well. I told the Physical Medicine Doctor that we are trying to get him ice skating, and she said it was ok to proceed... My Mom went with us, and we went to lunch at Bennigan's. Last night, Tommy, Austin, and I went to the pond and did some skating... Tommy got to use his new skates, and Austin actually made some progress (after whining, and whimpering a little).



So, on the way out of Ann Arbor yesterday we stopped at the Apple Store. I have been wanting a Mac for awhile, but it is official now... I looked at the MacBook Pro's, but they are just too darn expensive. So, I started looking at the MacBook's, and I think this small profile could suit me nicely. I will probably be taking this along with my work laptop, so it would be a nice complement to my computing scene. The only concern on the MacBook was the ability to play World of Warcraft (WOW). Of course a little search on Google was enough to find this blog, and ease my mind.



The only thing left is to convince my wife that I deserve it. So, I decided that this important decision should be left to you my blog readers... After all, this is the era of Reality TV, and with shows like Survivor we should let the public decide. So, please vote on the poll to the right...

EDITED AT 9:27 PM on 1/25/08 to spell "poll" correctly. Thanks Julie :)

In an effort to be cost conscious I am going to vote for the MacBook :)

This is America, and it's ok to vote for myself :)

Mike said...

Dawn said...

I think it's horrible that I can't vote NO in a nice way!

Mom2Max&Alex said...

I'm not voting. I'll cast my vote and say "YES" you should get one as soon as you let Dawn get a "chick" tattoo!!

Hehe, I'm evil like that. And I'm a bad influence so watch out! Good thing I know you love me!

Angie,

As you know Dawn is a Catholic School Teacher, and according to this link she would need to reflect on these topics... She wouldn't want to needlessly offend anyone, and therefore deter them from Catholic School :)

So, getting a temporary tattoo to gain that sense of being in the group could be just as effective without the moral controversy of mutilating the skin.

Love ya,
--Joe

good negotiating Angie. Guess Joe doesn't want the Mac bad enough.....

I don't know, Joe, I read your whole article. I can see if she wanted something crazy, but this is a "friendship" type thing. We love her whether she has it or not, but the article you posted supports my thinking. I think. I read it but I also worked last night so I'm tired.

Joe said...

So, I read the article again, and I guess in my haste of replying it isn't really all that supportive...

I guess I am just to "square and boring", for various reasons...

- I have never smoked anything
- I don't like tattoos
- Dawn has been the only woman in my life...
- Lots of others, but does it really matter :)

So, all that to say that I guess I am not willing to trade who I am and what I feel for the votes :)

Although a buddy of mine thinks I should give in on the tattoo and go for the MacBook Pro...LOL
