Lick my wounds
Learn my lesson
I have an extremely unfunny daily calendar in my server room.
It’s called The Argyle Sweater and I’m sure it is supposed to be funny.
But it’s not. It’s at best ‘punny’ or ‘cheeky’ and maybe ‘corny’.
It’s a little disappointing to tear off each day and be presented with another cartoon which doesn’t make me even consider smiling.
AND THAT’S HOW I START EACH MORNING AT THE OFFICE!
It is the middle of July.
Today, employees from the drug store next door began unloading Christmas wrapping paper from their storage unit downstairs.
Just saw an advertisement for the iPad 2 and one of the ways they showed off the features was by saying “Now we can watch a newspaper”, with the iPad showing a “newspaper front page” announcing the Space Shuttle launching to begin a 16-day mission. With a simple finger touch, the picture of the shuttle becomes a video of it soaring into the sky.
And it strikes me that we’ll never see that again.
