iPhone FTW! And I'm very tall.

Very, very tall.

You have no idea how awesome it is that the iPhone can merge calendars.... My Treo freaked out whenever I tried to sync multiple calendars onto it. I'd end up with piles of duplicated contacts which would KEEP duplicating when I'd sync again. Like all day holidays, I had 9 entries for Independence Day when I first synchronized all my calendars.

The iPhone is smart enough to determine duplicate entries. I can finally manage all my calendars easily and even start using Google calendars again. So cool.

I sound like one of those real People iPhone commercials.

In other news, I've dropped the weight from thanksgiving and there's no more pie. Time to get back on the hardcore calorie restriction. Unfortunately this means another few days to a week of sugar withdrawal. Last time I was cranky and tired for a week, slept like 11 hours a night as my body flushed.

Hopefully it won't be as wicked this time, but I did eat a whole lot of pie this last week....

Photo: Savagely, savagely stole this idea from ralinad. except the tree and vignetting. :) I was at Tenney Park last Sunday and the sun was setting and it was gorgeous.

As long as you don't dress like a metrosexual smug douchebag as well, I will accept you.

Um... How do metrosexual douches dress?

You should frolic more.

Also, we're better friends now that you're taller. That's the shadow I cast at mid-day.

I don't frolic enough?

Anyway, I'm pretty sure I do dress like a metrosexual douche but I NEED to be sure because that means I'm suddenly no longer a hipster.

You make better friends with tall people? I knew you were bigoted.

A1) I feel that frolic can be taken to the limit as it approaches infinity. You should frolic infinitely more.
B2) That's probably true. You're slowly slipping from hipster to metro douche with each passing day. You should also work on that.
C3) I never said I wasn't.

I'll work on that frolicking. Doing so with a laptop in a bag is hard though. Throws off your leap potential for screwy center of gravity.

What defines a metro douche?

At least we agree on SOMETHING. Now, our friendship, which getting to the long side of 7 years, really means something to me. Finally.

I don't have the nipples for Stan's shirt but Cartman sure looks spiffy in his.. um? Andy Warhol graphic T?

I need more furry clothes. :)

Can you bust out a South Park pic for hipsters? I really hope you can. :)

You mean people that just sit in their basement talking about how much better they are than other people on the internet? Yeah, got that one covered.

I went to high school with that guy.

That's so not a hipster. That's just a fat WoWer, which is totally a redundancy. :)

This is where spitefairy or nefas gets angry and posts surly WoWer comments.

Great. Now they're going to slay us with virtual lightning bolts and magical swords-of-doing-a-lot-of-damage-plus-fire.

Good going Will.

I'm going to go back to mining gold now.

Light colors, see through shirts, perms, frosted tips, pinks, old styles brought back again, and 2d animation.

And yes, today we have reached a new level of honesty in our relationship. Lets celebrate by meeting up at the gap later and then making out.

I'll meet at your Mom's gap.

I don't own any hoodies. :)

He's a douche? Mac is the man, man!

Don't mean it to that extreme a level, but there's something there and you know it.
abmann From: abmann Date: November 29th, 2007 02:58 pm (UTC) (Link)
You're right. Hoodies absolutely drive people to making out with retards. I think we should ban all hoodies in the world. In fact, the word "hoodie" should be removed from our lexicon.
zesty_pinto From: zesty_pinto Date: November 29th, 2007 03:02 pm (UTC) (Link)
I'm glad you understand the emergence of this issue. I suggest getting shears and chopping off any head covering that comes with sweatshirts.

Also, smug douchebaggery gets a bit thumbs down. Almost enough for me to thieve assfingers thumbs down, but not enough for me to follow on it.
abmann From: abmann Date: November 29th, 2007 03:06 pm (UTC) (Link)
I encourage the theft and disfigurement of assfinger's icons.

Down with hoodies and retards!

I was going to say that looked familiar...

There's a street near here where it catches the light just right at sunset, your shadow ends up more than a block long. I only saw it on days when I didn't have my camera, and once I started carrying it every day I never saw it again. :(

You're making me want an iPhone even more. Probably next year.
abmann From: abmann Date: November 29th, 2007 03:35 pm (UTC) (Link)
1400 songs on it. 1400! It is like that USA TV show... only with 14 instead of 44... and they're MP3s instead of people. So it's really nothing like that show but it certainly makes it seem that much cooler and sci-fi-y.

It even rings ONCE for calendar reminders and that's it. :)
ralinad From: ralinad Date: November 29th, 2007 03:46 pm (UTC) (Link)
Yeah, but I won't want to carry it around with my 80gb iPod which serves that purpose well. I've been annoyed at my phone lately, too. I just really dislike having to switch services to get it.

Yeah, I'll end up with it eventually. I want it for the maps, hopefully the next gen will have the rumored gps chip.

abmann From: abmann Date: November 29th, 2007 03:49 pm (UTC) (Link)
Yeah, AT&T ain't so grand. Totally understand.

Love the wi-fi access in Madison, though. I should mostly see great increases in downloads on the iPhone versus my treo.
ralinad From: ralinad Date: November 29th, 2007 04:00 pm (UTC) (Link)
Ah, right, the wi-fi would be HUGE. Just read on macrumors that they're supposed to be releasing a 3G version next year, which would work better for me here.
abmann From: abmann Date: November 29th, 2007 04:04 pm (UTC) (Link)
Yup.... just read all that too.

You know, same thing happened with mt MacBook Pro. I buy it and then like the next week there are updates. Geez.

Ah well.
