i heart my mac mondays

Alright, the time has come to share that I have fully, officially with no reservations, become a total Mac snob. Fanatic. Lover. Guru. Partially, it's because my husband works for Apple and I have washed so many Apple logos printed on T-shirts, been to the store more times than even the avid Mac user could count, and personally thank Apple for assisting in helping our family eat. But, the other part, is that I own a Mac, and I love it.

The streamline simplicity of my black Mac book shouts sophistication, while the glowing Apple logo on the back of the computer screams creativity. You don't believe me? According to this study, when a group of participants were given subliminal messages in the form of pictures of either an Apple or IBM logo, participants responded more creatively after seeing the Apple logo vs. the IBM logo. If this information is not enough for you to glare at your PC, point your finger, shout, and blame it for all your attempts at failed creativity, then perhaps the next Windows pop-up message will do the trick. Come on, don't hide, we all want to forget those burned cupcakes, the drawings that no one can recognize, the projects that got thrown into the recycle bin on accident, and that dress you really tried to sew (but somehow ended up with only one sleeve)? That is exactly, my friends, why having a Mac comes in handy.

So, from this moment on, Mondays will be dedicated to the celebration of Apple. Mac tips and tricks, application shortcuts, new products, new name, and I will try to have it. And if you don't have a Mac to join in that celebration, please do not put away those dancing shoes just yet. Tune in, but I will not foot the bill when you break down after a few, harmless Mac Mondays and find yourself charging a different type of apple than granny-smith to your credit card.

feeling creative yet?

I have never used a Mac in my life. I think I'm too comfortable with my regular old PC.

BTW, have you been reading our book club book? I have about a quarter of the way to go.
