Confession: This is my third Air. I'm kind of hard on them, so I decided rather than the small one, I'd get the 13-inch this time. I thought long and hard about the MacBook, but I knew the square edges would bug me as I'm pounding on the keys. We live basically beside the Apple campus, so there are a lot of Apple stores around me. Valley Fair, Los Gatos, Palo Alto, Stanford Mall...I decided on the Stanford Mall. It's tucked in between Neiman Marcus and the Coach & Louis Vuitton store. I feel very practical when I go spend that amount on a product that allows me to make money rather than a handbag. See? Totally practical.
I'd never been in this store, but it was beautiful. It has glass ceilings. I felt like I was in "Charlie & the Chocolate Factory" with all its wonder. It took me a long time to decide (much to my daughter's chagrin, but you know Brandy Melville AGAIN can wait!)
I bought a FireWire and had everything transferred in a matter of minutes. So now, I am without excuse. Tomorrow, I will fly through the Bachelorette blog (my keyboard was really bad, the space key didn't work, so it took me forever to type anything!)
Oh and a final note to Chase -- who turned down my credit card twice. Then, five minutes later sends me a "CHASE FRAUD ALERT!" Seriously? It wasn't even that much. They can't CALL me rather than turn my credit card down? I just transferred money and did it on the debit card. But that's annoying, isn't it? I buy a lot of stuff at Fry's, Apple and Best Buy -- sometimes, it's only like $40 and Chase turns down my credit card. There has to be a better way to fight fraud than annoy your customers, doesn't there?
