Let me explain.
I'm just discovering
Yesterday, my nearly 15 year old son begrudgingly taught me how to operate my new iPod Touch (he's had his own for years) and I was very proud because, as the resident IT staff in our home, he somewhat masked his condescension as I tried to type in various usernames and passwords and credit card information which was more painful than watching my childhood cousins' three-legged pregnant dog aptly named "Pokey" attempt to run across the yard, and then type. So he finally just entered all my data and now he knows all my passwords. Er, that's probably not going to be a problem, right? Finally we were able to started playing with it. First, the camera:
|Is it just me or does my son|
resemble Mike Tyson?
Soon I had several apps (for free, because I'm cheap like that) like face-time (!) and twitter (!) and uh, a calculator. And then I tweeted from my Ipod for the first time. My hashtags? #icanttypeonthiscauseimold #oldthubs. Yup, old thubs. Wow. That word speaks so succinctly to my ineptitude.
Somewhere during all of this, that iPod Touch BLEW MY MIND and now I'm addicted and I am imagining all the ways to "iCreate." My brain is totally "glitching out" (son's phrasing again). I'm stuck in app mode and everywhere I look I see possibilities for applications (because that's what apps is short for, I think). Anyway. I forgot where I was going with this. Oh yeah: piggybacks....
Peeps: I love reading your blogs on Saturday morning instead of doing all the things I once did on Saturday mornings: . Your clever ideas impress me so. Ideas I can
For example, maybe you, like Charlie (don't worry, not that Charlie) could use what I would call the "Pavlovian Electrical Zap App for Dogs," a simple sound effect that might prevent your dog from burning down your house or at least royally pissing you off. And thanks to Sarah's inspiration, may I present "The Tommy Lee Jones Voice App." Simply record yourself making a commanding command and hear it replayed in Tommy Lee Jones' voice. Voila: instant gravity brought to any situation. And thanks to Duffmano, the "Faye Dunaway in Mommy Dearest CSI App" could be very useful too if you, like me, have raised brats.
Now please excuse me while I attempt to bungle my way through changing all my passwords.
