Two Thoughts Tuesday

1) I can't help but chuckle when I see a minivan with a vanity plate like "4mygrls" or "kidtaxi" or "boysbus". It makes me think that the owner wants to make 100% sure that I--a complete stranger--realize that she is only driving a minivan for the children. As if the family of stick people on the rear window, various team sport stickers plastered on the bumper, and the movies playing in the backseat DVD players weren't enough to clue me into that fact. Funny how I never see these kinds of plates on the BMWs.

2) Recently my laptop has been waging a mutiny. When I press the print button it tries to send a fax instead. Firefox gets temperamental and crashes whenever I open any of my favorite shopping sites. The last few times I've turned it on, it's started with that fatal black screen that tells me it has to check my files for terminal encryption or some such nonsense.

Oddly, all of this started happening right around the time that Drew brought a new MacBook Pro into the house. Do you think its mainframe has some kind of PC seek & destroy program installed in it under the code name "AppleRulesMicrosoftDrools"? Or is this the universe's way of saying that maybe Drew should buy me my own MacBook? I think I like option 2 better.

  1. I want to see those plates on a mini-cooper.

    But not on a cargo van with tinted windows.
