TheManTheMyth is the complete opposite. He has no interest in technological things like computers, iPhones, Kindles, etc. And he hates to talk on the phone.But if it's something to do with dirtbikes, he Must Have It. Now.
I am so NOT a fan of the whole video chatting thing. You wanna see me? Well, c'mon over. Um, if you give me notice so I can hide all my crap and pretend that I keep my house clean. LOL @ your bathing cap. Love it!
You should answer facetime dressed as a white tiger! that would be amazing!
Oh! Have fun, Joann!I kinda, sorta, (secretly really,really) want this new fangeled iPhone, but like you don't care for the Facetime feature. I just don't like seeing myself talking to somebody else. Makes me feel like I'k stalking myself. We're due for our upgrades in Feb. , so maybe by then I'll be over the fear of facing myself.How profound is that? ; )
Oh, my gaa!! I could NOT live that way.What do you do if there's a nose picker in the house (not that I would know one...)
Another priceless post! Loved it. You are just so funny! My son keeps telling me I need a fancier cell phone so I can do all kinds of things with it. I told him all I want is a cell phone to make calls with. I have a laptop, I have a tv, I have a camera, and I have a gps; I don't need my telephone to do those things. He thinks I'm hopeless.
I LOVE Chicago! The group ... not the city! And Facetime sounds horrendous! Thank Goodness we don't have AT & T!
LOL!!!! I loved your post... I thought I was the only one who wandered sans bra and stuff till all hours..LOL!!!! Ps im dying for an i phone.. my husband wont leave verizon for att so im stuck!! AHHHHH UGH!!!!!..ps I only icaht in full makeup and hair done..LOL
Chicago is mine and my husband's "our song". Good choice.And I don't know how you handle the "facetime". I'm a big fan of no facetime.
damn. And I was gonna ask if you would do the video yahoo IM with me......
dammit, i just wrote a brilliant comment and blogger ate it.I am not aware of these clockwork orange-ian ways of Apple. I would not like Facetime. I like to flip people off, adjust my bra and de-wedgify my thong when on the phone, so that would NOT work for me.Have a great time in chicago and eat an eye-talian beef for me :)
Your shirt? The Springsteen one? LOVE it. I would totally chat with you all day. Oh - and I have a Mac, but I only use Skype. Never ichat. Tell your hubs to get on it. My iphone just took a small dip in the pool yesterday and? It drowned. It no longer does what it should. V. sad.Also? Your kitchen is freaking AMAZING!
So you're whoring around with the hubby's work friend huh??? WE are sooo made for eachother.One time I sent Mr. CB a PICTURE msg... and Mr. CB's boss was standing beside him when he flipped it open.Now his boss has seen my cooter. Thrilled to have had the fucking pleasure Mr. Bossman!And your a goldfish huh??? Sounds fucking badass!!!!
laundry hurts my feelings too.infact, i have a load i need to move to the dryer... dammit.Loved the post! :)
omg i would kill my husband but im the technology geek in this family and even if he hada fancy phone with bells and whistles he wouldnt know what to do with it which is prob a good thing since i too run around in my jams until well bed time when i take a shower and then return to a new pair of jams.. yeah thats how i roll
Joann, you are amazing, you look amazing...your normal self that is...;)and you had me laughing and laughing as usual. You are so fun. Your hubby is cute in an always-annoying-you-type-of-way. :)The shower story...I just can't get over the shower story!
You and your kitchen are gorgeous!
No thanks! Nobody wants or needs to see me..I was going to say that much but I'm goin to say at all. I got a web cam and was considering Skype and/or doing a vlog. I saw myself on the screen and it caused me to have a nervous breakdown and to eat a box of cookies. iChat/Face time/whatever visual is very, very bad for me.
If you could see my kitchen, you would freak! I have piles of papers and notes everywhere! And if I could look as good as you do in your "casual clothes" I would be a happy girl!!I sneak the thermostat down to 74 at night and sleep in a mismatched hodgepodge of bizarre attire (but not as bizarre as some of the attire I have seen lately. More later on that!!).Keil has a camera on his computer, but I look like a walrus on the screen, so I dodge it whenever I can.
Luv the first outfit. I think I own one just like it. Luv geeknological.You don't look old enough to have teenage daughters.
I'm still stuck on your beautiful kitchen. And the rawhide bone? I thought it was a sock because that is what would be under the butcher block if I had one. Have a great trip!
Lol! I didn't even see the bones, no worries.Great pictures though!!Unfortunately, you've made me want an iPhone...
I too am in love with my Macbook. Somehow, I think your husband and I would get along swimmingly. Although, I do not even own a cell phone, so you have two up on me there.I didn't realize I could iChat, but from your description, it sounds pretty awesome.
If people aren't prepared to see you at your "finest", they shouldn't video chat you at all. :)You've won an award at my blog! It's on my latest post:http://lanternoflightning.blogspot.com/
I have discovered that it is WAY easy to flip off the ringer on the iPhone. It's "accidental" of course.
So you're coming to Minnesota, then???!!!Party on Saturday, lots of food.My first computer was an apple laptop. My boss's brother worked for apple! It was cool... And heavy, and I had zero computer experience. I was 18!!!Katie says her Mac has superpowers and never breaks down like my PC.My mother dropped my iphone 3x the other day and with each bump down her deck, I kept telling her that I am looking forward to getting the new upgrade. Keep dropping it mom.Have a fun weekend. I think everybody is out of touch during the summer. Family and fun come first.I am sorry one of your girls is sick. Yuck. Nobody should be sick in the summer.Take care,Erika
So I am technically challenged, despite working for a computer company (in event management in my defense) I never picked up tons of tech things.Since my daily ensembles stronly resemble yours, except with tackier, pants I decided from the get go to not use the webcam on my latop.Until one day I was on a web conference call thing and I didn't know it was on. I was literally makeup-less, in gnome pj's, drinking diet coke and had just blown my nose and had snot go all over my face-all on camera. I could hear people giggling and FINALLY someone im'd me to tell me the problem. I didn't know how to turn off the webcam so I put duct tape over it.That was two years ago, it's still duct-taped.
I love that you're the trick pony for all the live view stuff! So funny! I love that he includes you in his geeknology!
I feel for you, especially because I'm writing this in my pajamas.Have a safe trip!
I have a MacBook, but there will be no iChatting going on in my house. Your Before picture looked a bajillion times better than mine would. And the thought of Facetime phone fun just makes me gag and cringe. No way, no how! Hope you have a great time wherever you're going and have some good stories to tell upon your return. Have a wonderful 4th of July weekend!
Your kitchen is GORGEOUS and I love your shoes! That swim cap is downright terrifying.I think your husbands needs some sort of 12 step program for this geeknological business. A girl's gotta feel safe to be braless in her own home!The towel story is freakin' awesome, though, Joann! LOVE it!
That was THE funniest post I may have ever read in my entire life. I love Apple products as well, but not as much as your husband loves iChat!http://theartsymom.tk
OMG! This is hilarious. I wish I could come up with a different comment. Every time I say, "This is hilarious!"If people saw me during the day when I'm working on my computer they'd run for miles. Hair sticking out from twisting it. Mascara under my eyes because it just does that - who knows why? And, of course, the ugliest clothes on I own because why wouldn't I wear ugly?You kill me!
I have a cheap pay as you go do nothing phone and that is quite sufficient for a non-technical, anti-social soul such as me :-)As for your kitchen, that could not possibly be described as messy, just simply gorgeous!
You look gorgeous in all your photos, so don't bother.I prayed as I read that you didn't come out of the shower like you did, but ooooh, the husband knows now, that he is a really lucky man! ;)HOW did you look so amazing as a kid?? TOO MUCH!Have a happy next week, Joann! and fly safe.
I'm so not a fan of the chatting thing either. Makes me feel awkward. I love your kitchen girl! I'd be doing a jig too if it were mine LOL. Have a great weekend!
Thank BOB you even had a scrap of a towel or bath mat or whatever the heck it was or heads would have ROLLED! That was TOO FUNNY! At least you're a skinny little biatch and the men had quite a show. If it happened to me they'd of all fallen on the floor and vomited! tee-hee!
LMAO You are so silly! I think you look great in both pics! LOL I don't think I could do the I-Chat thing either....I look a hot mess most of the time now that I'm laid off. tee hee And I see you have people that don't like to close cabinet doors either....that drives me NUTS!!Tree (aka Mother of Pearl)Mother of Pearl It Is
That Sufjan Stevens makes me feel all meloncholy and happy-sad-awake all at the same time. Thanks for this epic tale you wrote. It made me chortle.
I hope there is not facetime on the I-touch. I'll just not mention it to my hubby. Have a safe trip!!!
Here's the thing girl... you are one hot mama. So what if you wear jammies and have bed head half the day... you put a little effort and can be what some people only dream of. Oh, and I LOOOOOOVVVVE my iphone. Trust me, in a few months you will be an addict too.
That is such a great idea to hold a photo up to the phone. Lucky we don't have that kind of phone. I would be freaking out. Have an excellent week.
Hope you see some terrific fireworks today, Joann. If you plan to swim in Lake Michigan, be sure to wear that lovely bathing cap. I am sure you still have it somewhere. It is a collector's item!xoxo
Today I read that Iphone service costs approximately $1,200/year.Twelve... hundred... dollars. A year.For an Iphone.Not to bum you out or anything.
I laughed all the way thru this!!! (Except for your kiddo with food poisoning of course...that's brutal!)I don't think I'd like the chat deal...because like yourself...I roll braless and just a hot mess in general and would D-I-E if I had to let anyone see me at a moment's notice!Smooches gorgeous!
Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving love. I'm not excited about face time either since I too spend most of the day in my casual sight unseen clothes too. Haha.
I can see why you don't enjoy the video chat and I like the picture!
Visiting from Lish's blog, where you had me at your title. You had me at your title.I thought I was the only one who walks around braless. So glad to know I'm not! Oh, and I'm also super glad that my husband is satisfied with the last version of iPhone w/o the facetime, because I'd have to kill him. Luckily he's not quite enough of a geek for it yet, and would rather spend the money on vacation. I'm okay with that!
haha I know so many guys who are the same way! The guy I'm seeing is in love with Steve Job and his Iphone, and meanwhile my ex is in love with Google and his Android. They both talk about them CONSTANTLY, referring to their phones in the third person. "Oh excuse me my Android phone made by google is ringing" or showing me weird apps ("LOOK!! I can make my Android act like a STROBE LIGHT!! look now we're PARTYING with my ANDROID STROBE LIGHT" while his phone flashes ugly colors in an obnoxious way) or even more annoyingly, the way it announces itself when it gets a text message. DROIDDDDDDD. Creepy. Then there's "oh you have a question? here let me just look it up on my IPHONE, I have an IPHONE did you notice? Be careful with it, it's an IPHONE." Silly boys!http://omglia.blogspot.com
We at Lisa & Lisa Write a Book have an award for you over on our blog, if you’d like to stop by to collect it. :)
I am so glad that I came across your blog! I've gotta get one of those phones! ~happy geek girl~
Your post is hilarious.I am delighted to have discovered you.
There's not a jury in the world who would blame you for shoving that thing where the sun don't shine.Just make sure to kill the batteries first.Enjoy your time off!(P.S. your kitchen rocks!)
My husband is a Mac man, too, but not very geeknological. When he was overseas, we used Skype. With the time difference, I was just waking up as he was going into happy hour. And yes, many was the time he would call me while having a cocktail party. Thanks, dude.
