Dave!After a very long and annoying day, I wanted nothing more than to make a batch of chocolate-almond ice cream and veg-out in front of the television. But then the Cuisinart started leaking all over the place, so what I got instead was a chocolate-coated kitchen. Seriously, it was like Chocolate Armageddon over here. There was chocolate all over the countertops. There was chocolate running down the drawers. There was chocolate splattered on the floors. Everywhere you looked was chocolate...


Apparently, there are limits as to how much liquid you can put in a WHIRLING BLADES OF CERTAIN DEATH Cuisinart machine. I really do need to read that manual one day. Undeterred, I forged ahead whilst ankle-deep in chocolate, and made a new batch.

So now I sit here waiting for my ice-cream maker timer to beep, letting me know that frozen chocolatey goodness is waiting for me.

Checking my email, I see that Apple has shipped my copy of MacOS X 10.4 via FedEx today. The courier gods willing, I'll have it tomorrow. I'm pretty excited about that, but not all is coming up roses for Apple... the loser ass-clowns at "Tiger Direct" are suing Apple because MacOS X 10.4 is code-named "Tiger" and they claim that it will "cause confusion, mistake and deception among the general purchasing public." This is laughable on so many levels, I don't even know what to say. First of all, the Apple "Tiger" code-name has been in existence for YEARS... but they wait until the day before Apple ships the product before firing off a lawsuit and injunction? Dumbasses. Like anybody is really going to confuse the Mac OS with a lame reseller. Like anybody even cares.

I was able to make an appointment at the screen printers today... it's set for next Tuesday. That means I can start sending out all the fabulous prizes from the Blogiversary 2 contest next Wednesday. Watch your mailbox!

Ooooh! Time to add the almonds - ice cream is almost ready. ICE CREAM! IIIIICE CREEEEEEEAAMMMM!!

    What a bunch of taintsmokers Tiger Direct is. And aren’t they a “strictly PC’ reseller? That makes them even worse. Maybe Apple will bury them witht eh laughter of the rest of the public. I ordered my copy today at the University bookstore. They close at 5 tomorrow, so I have to pick it up on Saturday. Stupid sackslaps.

  2. karla says:

    You make your own ice cream? You might be the perfect man. Even if a bit messy. But then, I consider spilled chocolate to be not a mess, but an opportunity for additional fork-free snacking. (I spill stuff alot, I gotta look on the bright side.)
    Mr Jerz…sackslaps? hahahahahaha

  3. karla says:

    um, Dave? yeah. Um, the chocolate exploding whirling blades of death?
    My fault. I should have said it earlier.
    Sorry. Sometimes the Evil just won’t be contained.

    Damn you Dave! I’m suffering abdominal laughing cramps! Chocolate Armageddon! I never knew such a thing existed!

  5. MRKisThatKid says:

    Aww, apple seem to have a lot of nonsense thrown at them these days. Number of new tiger features that ppl scream are stolen ideas. Such rubbish, if designers weren’t allowed to soak up ideas and improve them we’d still be hitting each other with bones and running away from fire.

    How are we ever to get away from IP hell when even users seem to argue over them?

    I love that Apple carry on using codenames right after the product is launched. Much nicer than calling it 10.4

  6. Rob says:

    Next will be Kelloggs. Tony the tiger will be pissed off and will have to mark his territory. Unfortunately, I do not own a kick ass Mac. But someday I plan on getting a kick ass Mac, and with it I will take over all of existance! Muah HA HA HA!

  8. girlonaglide says:

    Why do I keep hearing Eddie Murphy… you dropped your iiiice cream, you dropped your iiiice cream?!?

  9. Dave2 says:

    I was actually mimicking Eddie from earlier in that gig… ICE CREAM! IIIIICE CREEEEEEEEEEEAM!! THE ICE CREAM MAN IS COMING!! Watching his “Delirious” and “Raw” videos were probably two times that I’ve laughed the hardest.

  10. Alessandra says:

    Oh Dave, why didn’t you call me?? I would lick all your chocolate…. hummmmmm

    I’m getting my Tiger tonight, can’t wait!
