I was wondering if anybody has any traditions to commemorate Macworld? I make waffles for breakfast. It's nerdy, but, it's like a second Christmas. Also, I am the first one to know or care in my school. I remember that I went crazy when Apple released the iPhone. Everybody in my Tech class thought I needed a helmet when I told them Apple had just released an "iPhone."

I make myself a big plate of nachos with my homemade guacamole and favorite pico de gallo. And then camp out until I O.D. on Diet Coke or find a sugar daddy to buy me all the new goodies.

Six pack and a spliff as I watch the keynote video. It's like Christmas except I don't have to camp out at the parents house!

Yep, when my excitement bubbles over and I decide to talk about macworld with friends all I get is blank stares and occasionally an "Oh really?"

Nope, no traditions for me. Last year I was at my beach house with no internet so I had no idea what was going on. I opened up the newspaper and had to read about the iPhone like all the other ignorant citizens. This year I'll wake up to a posted video of Steve Jobs' keynote so I'm going to have a HHUUUGGGEEE bowl of Coco-Pops (if i could cook i would make some eggs and bacon) and a nice glass of OJ and just watch it. I'm tempted to hook up my mac mini to the TV so I can watch it in the lounge. I might actually do that, come to think of it.

I wear dress jeans, black socks, tennis shoes, and my black mock turtleneck to school on Stevenote days. I say, "Boom," a lot on those days, too. :cool:

LOL. You forgot the "and one more thing..." :) Also, remember your clicker remote and plentiful water bottles.

I am taking my Apple Remote to school, but it'll be just to complete the look. And the water bottles... yeah, I'll need to get some of those... :D

I did this last year and someone actually said to me "And it's shipping today". I didn't know whether to laugh or cry.

Funniest thing I've read this year. (Yeah, fourteen days, so what?) No one would do that where I come from. Bunch of Microtards...

Usually I start yelling about the specs of the new product at hand. I get way too exited!:D

Huh, I should try saying boom and see if anybody cares that I say it a lot.

i dont have any traditions, but dammit i should start.
it IS like christmas, with a lil new years maybe?

i have no one to watch it with that cares as much.
but i wish i could skip class, i would if it werent a critique.
its in the middle of my photo class!

maybe ill call some friends and play the keynote drinking game on the replay.

i need an apple shirt or something to wear on these occasions,
if only i got to the apple store sooner on leopard day.
