Even though I have been a Mac person for many years, the whole idea of “The Cloud” has had me in a virtual cloud. Just couldn’t wrap my brain around it and didn’t know where to start. Still working with the Leopard operating system on my laptop and desk computers and have failed miserably more than once attempting the upgrade to Snow Leopard, which is supposedly required in order to initiate the transfer over from Mobile Me. But with only five days left before Apple’s deadline, it was “damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead!” Lo and behold, it worked! What in the world was I afraid of? The Cloud is fantastic. What I want to know is, where IS this Cloud?
Received a phone call a little while ago with the news that an opinion letter I wrote yesterday has been approved for publication. Not only did this make my day because the subject was something near and dear to me, but also because it always feels so good to see my thoughts in print!
My writing partner is sitting across from me at the moment organizing k-cups for our new coffee brewer. It is an amazing process. (the organizing, not the brewing) Four large canisters, each one holding a different classification of beverages – regular flavored coffee, decaf flavored coffee, hot chocolate and tea – serve as our “back up supply” and go into the pantry. Sitting next to the magical machine is a three-drawer coffee pod tower, each drawer assigned its own special type of brew. And atop the tower, proudly displayed, rests the k-cup carousel, each row assigned a particular blend. Oh, if only my partner’s half of our desk were even half as organized! (in all fairness, the same goes for my side of the desk.)
We do have one dilemma with the classification of brews. Do we assign the chai lattes to the tea drawer, the flavored coffee row on the carousel, or the drawer with the hot chocolate pods? Someone wonders.
