Out With The Old, In With The New

Checking in briefly. . . Passover was fantastic, and I'll write more about it later. My old computer, the Lord Jeffrey iMac, died a quiet death of old age last week, surrounded by loved ones. Two help desks I called said that the data on Lord Jeff is probably okay, and they can pull it and put it on the new computer I'll have to get. I'll order that one (already named iGor) probably tomorrow morning, pick it up Saturday, and life will be wonderful. But until I can switch Lord Jeff for iGor, my computer access will be somewhat sporadic.

I went to see Dan Savage speak last night, and it was great. He gave a very open, humorous, honest talk about sex and relationships and politics. What made it even better was that they had a couple of ladies doing ASL interpretation. Given Dan Savage's usual subject matter, it was almost as much fun to watch the sign language as to listen to him speak. And even he got a kick out of watching the sign language for several rather intimate acts.

Bleh. I am massively overtired. I'm going to go home and nap. Catch you later.

Dan Savage is a funny sex advice columnist, but I don't think he's Jewish. He was raised Catholic in Chicago, but he left the church when he came out. But he's still eminently worth reading anyway.

And, yes, iGor is spiffalicious. A classmate is driving me and Lord Jeff to the tech store tomorrow so that the IT people can transfer all the data from Lord Jeff to iGor. When that's done, I'll be able to take iGor home. Should be only a few days.

Thought he was Jewish since he wrote about Seder Pesach. Shame:)

Is iGor an iBook or an iMac? At Bezalel there's a room full of the latest iMac model, but only the 4th year can use it. We're only allowed to touch the older iMacs and eMacs. They did put two of those iMacs at the Computer Farm, though, and I've fallen in love. I want one ever since. Please tell me it's an iMac so I could live through you! ;)

Yes, iGor is indeed an iMac. I don't like laptops, so I wanted a real computer. iGor is a top-of-the-line machine, which is why I'm not mourning Lord Jeff overmuch.

G5 iMac! Sweet!!

And you call him iGor because...?

It's a long story. iGor is a graduation present from Mom and Dad Pony. I will be getting a Master's Degree, which leads me to think of hunchbacked servants named Igor addressing mad scientists as "Yeth, Mathter." And, in Mel Brooks's "Young Frankenstein," (which you must see if you haven't yet), the hunchbacked assistant pronounces his name iGor. So, iGor it is!

Ahhhh... There's a reason for everything!:)
