Apple Bliss

The glowing Apple logo.

Nick and Tabitha and I made a little pilgrimage to the Apple Store in Fashion Valley. I’m blogging in from an iMac in the store. Grin!

[Later: Thanks again to Tab and Nick for putting up with my insane need to finally visit an Apple Store. I’m bummed they didn’t have the absolute latest/greatest stuff there to drool over but it was pretty cool none the less. Now I’ve had my Apple fix and can go on with my life. For now.]

[P.S. Yes, somehow we did make it out of there without buying an iPod. But we did look at the box. And try out the demo. And wondered how many we could fit into our pockets and whether we could make it to Mexico before they caught us… Kidding!]

Sam Oh

I see you found you’re Meca :)

Rob Christensen

walt - this is god… you should by an iPod to demonstrate your endless love for me and for Apple. Walt, this is God.

Walt Dickinson is a little too crafty for you this time, “god”… But I am impressed that you commented right as I was updating the blog. Well done. And Sam, yes, I will have to return to the Apple Store like the salmon to Capistrano. But I dont think I’ll be praying in the direction of one several times a day.

I think you mean swallows, not salmon. Salmon go upstream to spawn every year.

Walt Dickinson

Yes, it’s sort of a multi-reference. In addition to referencing the spawning habits of the salmon and the swallows migrating to Capistrano, I’m referencing the line in Dumb in Dumber, in which Jim Carrey makes the same mistake. =-)

Lloyd: “I’m talkin’ about a place where the beer flows like wine, where the women instinctively flock like the salmon of Capistrano. I’m talkin’ about Aspen.”

Harry: “I don’t know Lloyd, the French are assholes.”

Scott Yager

Ah. I didn’t like Dumb and Dumber :)
