This and That

Good news!

•  Apple was able to fix everything I needed them to fix yesterday.

Bad news?

It took up a big chunk of my day since I wasn’t allowed to leave my computer and I had to stay in the store while they fixed it.

(But, it’s a much better scenario than leaving me computer-less for a few days which is what I expected to happen.)

I still have a few Adobe issues I need to tackle, but they can (hopefully) wait until I get through the Christmas rush.

Here’s a tip for those of you who own Apple products:  They’ve changed things and made it near impossible to go online and book a Genius appointment.  But, if you download the (free) Apple Store app you can make a Genius appointment directly from the app.

•  I’m so hopelessly behind on my own holiday stuff it’s ridiculous.

I’m trying to figure out what to wear to a Christmas party next weekend.

I’m so bad at being girly.

It’s one of those parties that’s casual dressy.

I’m thinking maybe black legging jeans, black boots, a white hole-y sweater with a white camisole/bandeau underneath, a red and white, striped, silk/cashmere scarf to add some holiday color … and some glittery costume jewelry.



I really don’t  own any  wear dresses, although I do think they look great on other people … particularly with tights and boots.

If you have any outfit suggestions, I’d love to hear them because I’m fashion-clueless.

(I’m curvy so all the cute braless stuff and boy-tailored things don’t work on me.)

•  I’m excited about some of my ideas for giving this holiday season, but I can’t write about them because it’s a secret.  Shhhh!

•  What I want for Christmas is a Newfie.  But, a dog is not going to happen until (hopefully) sometime AFTER the holidays.  Instead, I’ve been dropping hints about bluetooth speakers.  I love to listen to music while I edit photos.  It would be nice to control the music right from my computer without the “tinny” sound of computer speakers.  Do you have any bluetooth speakers you’d recommend?

•  When do you think I need to mail gifts to the east coast?  Yesterday?

•  I have a naked tree in my living room.  It’s going to have to stay naked indefinitely.

•  I apologize to everyone, in advance, for failing Christmas this year.

    I have a Sony bluetooth speaker and I love it, it even has the capability to use as a speaker phone like the ones in your car. I use it both in the house, and when I want to sit outside and listen to music. I bought my son one for xmas that is waterproof and “rugged” because he likes to hike and camp and I thought it would be perfect.

    Thanks for the Apple app suggestion. I had to physically walk into the store to get a genius bar appointment. They want you to use tech support on the phone.

      I know. I just went through that on the first of my four trips there in the last week. One of their reps heard a few of us customers complaining about it and told us about the app. It’s a huge help. Steve Jobs is rolling over in his grave …. Apple is now making the simple complicated.

      It is. Too bad you can’t do the same thing online. Happy to help!
