    The hubby and I are sitting on our couch with our respective lappies "talking" to each other (and all the other fine MR folk) through MR....on a Friday night.... :rolleyes:

    Yeah, I don't think that's good. That's like those families who use cell phones to converse at dinner, and IM each other to say that dinner is ready.:eek: However, amnesty is granted through the fact that it's MR.:D

    So all is well.:)

    Yeah, but we are actually having a conversation at the same time. A lot of it is the usual H/W discussion, with the occasional "Hey! Look at this thread." thrown in. So, we aren't that bad, are we?

    Another thing that makes it better is that Lori had no interest in a Mac for a long time. But, as she spends more and more time here, the more she loathes her Toshiba. So, it is a good thing in a way....:)

    Stupid battery life that only lasts an hour..... *shakes fist violently at the computer screen* :p

    I think it's more like a bunch of "Hey! Look at this thread" conversations with the occasional H/W discussion. :D

    Well, don't be afraid to launch/fling it when you are ready to get a MB or MBP! :)

    Absolutely. Except now I'm not longer sitting on the couch because I had to go plug the lappy in *still shaking fist* and didn't feel like untangling the mess behind the desk that is our electrical cords just to get the A/C adapter out....

    I've got a power adapter permanently ensconced under the couch for that very reason.

    I'm trying to come up with a good way of getting power to the dining room table without it looking like hell.

    My wife and I have iChats on so we can pester each other from time to time as well - which actually brings me to why I need to put a second power adapter under the couch soon...

    Why do you spend so much time discussing hot water? Just turn the damned immersion on and you can have as much as you want. End of story.

    There are better ways for Mac geeks to have a good time.

    Go to the bedroom, get out the old thermal paste, and heat things up. ;)

    Hey, some people find great enjoyment discussing aliens, star wars, politics, or the weather, but we like to discuss various water states! :D

    Perhaps this is another one of those "WC means Water Closet not Wesleyan Church" interpretation things.... :D

    Congratulations! That sentence is both hot and cold at the same time. And vaguely disturbing...

    And we want pics when you do....;)

    To be honest, that sounds like way more fun than some parties I've been to.

    Am I missing something, or is it OK not to give a #&^$ about inane small talk with sloshed people you don't like anyway?

    @#$@& it, give me and my sweetie lattes from my own machine (the second-best coffees in town - still working on the technique), a good chair each and either a good English detective novel or a broadband connection to MR. We're happy.

    That is actually very cool! :)


    Glad that the two of you enjoy spending time with not only each other, but with the rest of the MR family (even if you can manage to do both at the same time)! :)

    I didn't notice which post you quoted at first. I was a bit disturbed. No...very disturbed. No....very disturbed and glad that I am not currently consuming food/beverage for the sake of not spraying sustenance all over my PB.:eek:

    Its one thing if you're still having an actual conversation on top of posting together on MR, its something else entirely if your mouhts are shut and your only interaction is through IM or MR. If its the latter then I'll have to present you with the Official vniow Geek Couple of the Year Award™.
