Anna tempted by an apple-tech
Danger? Hm. Well, yes, probably true. I mean I could :
- accidentally scald myself with hot coffee.
- have my hair get stuck in flirt mode such that I can’t switch it back (always a problem when seeking to avoid unwanted attention from skeevy subway men).
- get charged with sexual harassment ... naw, I think that’s unlikely. Besides, he - that is to say, Bearded One - was the one who asked if I’d be making an appearance at the booze-a-thon pre-office mixer Friday.
One major score from the office mixer, however, was making the acquaintance of ... are you ready for this, readers? ... a Mac tech. (Anna fans self dramatically, briefly swoons against office chair, then recovers as faintly pink apple-shaped thought bubbles drift lazily upward) I mean - hello! - can you say, Anna’s fantasy man?!! Finally a local techie I make nice with! He’s even blond.
Today’s a busy day for him, it turns out, but word of my iBook woes - combined with the endearing quality of my glasses (he has them too) - may yet succeed in the key securement of a little of his time today. Which is important, since my temp assignment ends today.
What can I say? Sometimes the ability to simultaneously simper, geek out with computer-love, and project total helplessness really pays off. :D And to think I thought it would take the Silicon Valley to get help for my poor baby!
Wow ... to think Microsoft Word might actually operate without crashing!!!! That I might cease having to cope with Mozilla errors!!!
Please let him be a Jesus freak, please let him be a Jesus freak ... but wait. I don’t need to date a Mac tech ... just bat my eyes long enough to get remedial repairs done. Too bad I forgot the mascara again today ... but I’m sure my over-the-top Mac love will suffice. I mean, I may not have gotten the barbed-wire apple tat the techie recently did, but I had one word for him at news of this body modification: “Respect.” And luckily I’m wearing my hair in pigtails today. Always a strong look.
