I'd still like to shave those numbers down a bit more, but this is MUCH better than several months ago (and ignore that idiotically high reference scale)

Hey Alton Brown, contender for world's worst unitasker?
Viewed from outside on the roof, the elevated skylight sections of my office look like squat, half burrowed little huts

Could've cut this morning's fog with a knife
My commercial press recently acquired this behemoth beast of a digital press which is wicked fast and can even do a varnish coating that makes the final product look like it was printed on glossy paper. It's so big, they had to take out a wall to occupy the length of one room and several feet into another. (See where the carpet stops?)
Fully operational production iMac
There's still some cable management cleanup to do, and the old Mac Pro is nearby in case there's something still on it that I forgot to transfer, but the new Retina iMac is officially ready for production work. In fact, it'll jump right away into the deep end tomorrow as I begin layout on the program booklet for our annual Camp Meeting convocation.

I really despise Sweetwater (non)rush hour
Last night's moon was fierce
Years since I've watched this cheesy show, but I love it. Especially this 2-part episode, Knight of the Juggernaut, where KITT gained Super Pursuit Mode and the C button (kudos to you if you know what the button did)—widely regarded as Knight Rider's "jump the shark" episode.
I'm a little disappointed in Taco Bell's new Diablo sauce
Diablo sauce is only marginally spicier than Fire sauce and its heat apparently comes from various spices and/or natural flavors instead of from peppers.

One wound—four stitches
Of the nearly 200 photos I snapped last night, I think this is my favorite
Never mind that Taco Bell ignored the modifications I ordered, what's with the ingredient segregation?
Actually, the way I always customize my Taco Bell chicken burritos, I'd wager I could not, in fact, have ordered on my phone

Experiences like this are why I am a life-long Apple customer
Wife's iPhone 5c battery began failing to stay charged for long, and soon exhibited visible swelling which warped the screen face and caused the home button to rarely work. It was long out of warranty, but Apple replaced it under its quality assurance program since it was a safety issue—didn't cost me a penny!
Consider this photo Day 252½ of my 365 Days of Happy project!
Well that was…unexpected—thanks AT&T (I wonder what spawned this since I have NEVER gone over minute limits before)

Original iPad and iPad Air 2—just…wow
And no, the original iPad is not propped up on anything. If you remember, the curved backside actually did make the center of the device this thick.

Yay—case ::: Boo—charging dock
First things first, I'm very pleased with this Spigen case I ordered for my iPhone 6s. Feels great and love how it smooths over the power and volume buttons. The kickstand is chintzy, but I didn't buy the case for that feature. It might come in handy once in a while but I don't expect to use it often.
On the other hand, this order also included a charging dock that I *thought* I had read would work with most any case as long as the case wasn't too thick (this one isn't). Sadly, it doesn't fit. Reading the description more carefully, it seems it will fit if the bottom of the case is wide open. This one is not—rather there's just a cutout for the Lightning connector and headphone jack (visible in this photo at bottom of case). So the dock gets sent back to Amazon—not their fault, so I eat the shipping. 🙁 Live and learn.
P.S. - no, unlike before, I'm not going with a Mophie battery case. Now that I'm on AT&T's Next plan that will swap out my phone every year, I don't want to spend money on a new case to fit it each time. So I'm planning on Mophie's Power Reserve 2x that I should be able to toss in a tote bag and use for a quick charge when needed.
Wow, I've not been inside one of these in æons!
No. *I* am your father. Search your feelings, you *know* it to be true!

Validation of my decision to buy the less expensive 32GB Apple TV 4 instead of the 64GB version
Put it this way: I've downloaded 51 apps as of this writing. Only 5 are bigger than 100MB (there's a 200MB limit on any app—anything more has to be downloaded from within the launched app). I know purchased movies are huge and might be stored on the device, but I almost never buy digital movies. When I do, I buy them in iTunes on my computer, so they are stored there instead and streamed to my Apple TV.
So yeah, I genuinely don't see myself filling up 32GB any time soon.
I officially have my wardrobe for finally seeing The Force Awakens some time next week
Oh the childhood memories of this spoon that got scraped in the bottom of the dishwasher
I used to HATE this spoon when I was growing up. Although I know probability surely dictated otherwise, it seemed like the utensil always got placed at my table setting. The scraped portion (caused by falling down into the spinning post at the bottom of the dishwasher) feels super weird in your mouth when you take a bite of food with it.
But those are childhood memories. Today, I love this spoon because of my childhood experience with it—especially since it once again ended up at my place setting tonight.
