I had a nice exchange with my sis-in-law as she was passing through town on Friday.
I died. Then I texted her, "I just died."
Speaking of technology, and of my brother and sister-in-law, AND of things that practically lay me in my grave:
Not long ago, Dave mentioned on the facebook that he and Katie had spent a whole year with a laptop keyboard on which the 'p' and 'n' keys didn't work, but they had finally taken it to the Apple store, where it was fixed quickly and for free. I realized I faintly remembered this problem from when we visited them in DC in April, that their 'p' and 'n' keys didn't work. And this is their only computer, mind you.
Fjords! I mean, I can't even, it's too much.
Then he went on to say that when he needed a 'p,' either lower- or upper-case, he would google "Obama" because that would get him "President." Then I was like ARGLE BARGLE and I blacked out.
Blacked out with delight.
We are such tool-using monkeys.
Someone PLEASE devise an alphabet primer composed of the best google search for seeking out each letter, from A-Z, keeping in mind that the search terms cannot contain the broken letter. Please do that. Where are we on that?
