Dragging her to the Apple store is like her dragging me to GameStop. I stand around awkwardly, hoping no one asks me any questions, and I try and help by picking up things sayings, "What about this?" while she smiles and reassures me that we can go soon. While she's not a Mac person, she is a gadget person so it wasn't as bad as me at GameStop-but she was definitely out of her element. When I finally got to my place it took about an hour to install, a very LONG hour. Let me tell you readers, it was well worth the hour because the Snow Leopard Rocks!!! If you are a Mac person, go to the store, drop the $29 + tax because it's totally awesome. My computer starts up faster, everything loads faster and it shuts down as soon as I hit the button. I realize how ridiculous I sound but I don't care because it's the little things in life that make me happy.
Anyone else out there a Mac person and loving Snow Leopard? Anyone else in a Mac/PC relationship? I do everything I can to not use the computer at her house because I can't ever find what I'm looking for and she does the same. This is a typical conversation that happens at least once a week because of the Mac/PC thing:
Context-I'm in the kitchen, she's on the couch
Girlfriend: (while using my computer) SIGH
Me: (giggling) top left babe
Girlfriend: Yeah, I just remembered. Keep laughing and I'll drop this when I stand up
Me: Yeah yeah you say that every time
Girlfriend: And? You think I won't?
Me: (smiling) Nope.
Girlfriend: And why not?
Me: Because I'll cry like a baby and then you will be stuck dealing with me being a blubbering mess, which will then make you cry, and then we are THOSE people who cry all the time and that's just not us.
Girlfriend: You cry all the time anyway.
Me: Nu-uh! I'm tough!
Girlfriend: (choking back laughing) Yes, yes you are dear. You are very tough. No, really...I mean it. Do you need me to open that for you?
Me: (sheepishly) Yes please.
In conclusion: Snow Leopard Rocks. I'm tough. Really.
