Apple Store - BUSTED!

Goal: Find the Apple Store in Austin.
ETA: About 1.5 hours.

Accomplished: Hating Austin of its lack of signage.
Real TA: 4.5 hours (thankfully round trip)

Learned: Don't bother trying to find the Austin Apple Store. And don't bother even trying to call the store. I tried calling twice, and both times it just kept ringing and ringing. And, yes, I got it from the website.

So why in the world was I going to Austin (btw, it was raining like cats and dogs, and I thought, hey, I really need this software, to hell with it - I will go to AUSTIN!)? So I could get iLife so I could get Garageband. Why? Because Nicole and I are going to do podcasts and the best instructions I have found uses Garageband. So I looked it up on the website. Wrote down the directions (which turnes out to be a joke).

You know what really pissed me off when I finally got home close to 10p.m.? I went back on to Apple.com to check if there was some place on their website that would show me where there are Apple Authorized Dealers in Waco (a 20-30minute trip). I had checked the site BEFORE I left on my intrepid adventure... and I SWEAR I am blind.

WHY? Well because RIGHT NEXT TO THE BOX WHERE YOU CAN CHECK THE APPLE STORE there is a simular box saying "find authorized dealers" - WELL FRACK!!!!!!! I had looked for an authorized Apple dealer before I left, I had called a store that I thought was one, and NEVER found that stupid box.

So the moral of the story: I have found a store here in Waco. I have to call to make sure they have an Apple section, and that they have the software. I could have stayed close to home, most likely already have this software. I could have saved all that time on the road, all that gas.

However, Nicole and then Jess and I had lovely conversations as I drove all around FRACKIN Texas. Oh Jess - my cell died that's why I was suddenly not there. Sorry.

Ok, now I have to get ready for work. Blah. I hope everyone else had a LOVELY evening!

[FIC] True Confessions of Mop & Glo

True Confessions of Mop & Glo
By Christine, Chris4Short
Summery: A POV from the SGC janitorial closet.
A/N: I fully hold Jess and my active imagination and sudden spare time wholly accountable for this. “This” being the pure, and utter, fluff you are about to read.

Ok some explaining before you read:
This little ditty is wholly and patialy Jess's (jessm78and my fault. Jess for saying she saw a pic (which i *think* i still have yet to verify sadly) of Daniel hurt (again) and on a respirator... (season 9 pic) and mine because i made a comment "Oh is that what they call sam kissing daniel".... well it evolved, or fell apart, take your pick, from there to a speculating of what goes on in broom closets...
