how am i supposed to sleep with this kind of anticipation

so i bit the bullet, eased open the wallet and bought a mac. i’ve only wanted a mac since i bought owen, my first personal computer, back in 1997. i wanted to buy a mac, but the stink totally talked me out of it. see, i was much more familiar and comfortable with macs, having used them all through college. but no, for some reason that neither the stink or i can remember, i listened to him and didn’t get a mac.

but, friday night i remedied all that, and on saturday Apple shipped it. and, according to FedEx it should be in my hot little hands on Wednesday. of course, i will have to obsessively check the FedEx site between now and wednesday.

of course it makes me panic a little. because well, it’s gonna be here on wednesday and i don’t have a cute new bag, a sleeve, or a name. i need a name that is not otto, oberon, ogden, or owen.

    I assume this means you’re ignoring or dismissing everyone’s suggestions in the prior thread?

    nothing has clicked yet. earl clicked but then sister #4 started singing that horrible earl had to die song and then so did the name.

    Oliver sounds like the obnoxious “Cousin Oliver” from the Brady Bunch.

    I say that because he’s from a new family, he should have a non O name. Maybe something with an I or an A.

    Like iGor, aDam; something like that.

    Anything “i” inspired would be gut-wretchingly cliche’. No, no, no, no, absolutely not…

    In sticking with the “O” theme:

    You know, because Apples are so much more sophisticated and snooty than an “IBM” type rig.

    But you don’t have a worthless graduate degree. You shouldn’t be buying an Apple in the first place.

    Othello – Black character in a sea of white character.

    oThello – White laptop in a sea of black laptops.

    I can see it working.
