I bet you have never met anyone in your life who couldn't get one of these up and running:
Well, honey, you know one now!! Our 40th wedding anniversary was Friday so DH and I decided to get an iPad. Now, we all know tons of people who have one and use them, right? Hello!! I mean, DH has an iPhone4S and I use a MacBook, so setting up an iPad shouldn't have been too tough for us, right? NOT!!!! Seems that my MacBook uses one e-mail incoming and outgoing code and DH's iPhone another code so nothing coordinates the way it should. We were on the phone Friday afternoon with 3 Apple genius' for over 3 hours and they haven't a clue what to do. The suggestion was to call our e-mail provider to straighten out the problem, but when DH did that, they insisted it wasn't their problem and to call AT&T which is DH's phone provider. You can only guess what AT&T said..........YUP, they told us that it wasn't their problem either and the e-mail provider had to be the culprit. So.....isn't this just ducky??? E-gads, I HATE technology!!! Hate, hate, hate it!! In the meantime, the new iPad sits on the counter and can't do a thing. You can only imagine what I am thinking! TAKE THE DAMN THING BACK!!! I didn't need it up to this point, and I don't need it now!! Screw it! What really took the cake is when one of the Apple genius' (named Barbara) told me that she talks all the time to an 84 year old grandma who "just loves her iPad". After all of this, I'm wondering if the grandma loves her iPad so much, why is she constantly talking to the genius named, "Barbara" all the time??? Hello???? Did Barbara think that comment just went over my head? Hello!!! NOT!!! I wish I could write dirty words because I'd really like to!!! Give me a sewing machine any day of the week! At least the frustration isn't as bad! (At least most of the time.) lol
On another note, the Sew, Vote, Swap #5 is over and it's always such a fun surprise discovering which quilt will come my way. This time, I received my #1 pick made by Lindsay who is also known as "Fly Girl Fly". Her entry reminded me of the fantasy of little girls:
If you remember, or perhaps I didn't show you, this is what I made:
Other than that, not much is new. I haven't been sewing like I should. (Has anyone??) Not much is going on in Flickr lately (as you might have noticed), and I only need so many quilts for us so why bother making more? (What a lazy attitude, huh?) I do have something in mind that I want to try, so hopefully, I will get to it this week. Problem is that if it turns out good enough, I might save it for some swap and won't be able to show you anyway. Bummer! One of these days, I should make something big though. That would take up some time and some fabric. I'm thinking with all this little stuff I make lately (and using the crayon method too), I could be set for fabric for at least the next 20 years or so and surely that's not too thrilling!
