So I went to the dentist yesterday and was struck by two revelations. First, going to get my teeth cleaned would be exponentially better if there was a flat screen TV mounted to the ceiling so I could watch SportsCenter while I lay back and let a lady with latex gloves that smell like diapers jab at my gums with tools they wouldn’t dare use at Gitmo. I was later informed by my dentist friend Mitch that his practice has TVs for their patients to watch. Thanks. Thanks a lot.
My second revelation was this: people in the medical field get to wear pajamas all day long. Don’t get me wrong- I’m not trying to marginalize what doctors, nurses and dentists do. You’re surely greater than the rest of us. But seriously, you’ve been rubbing your comfortable uniforms in our faces for years, and now they even make scrubs with style so you’re no longer semi-formless powder blue rectangles. Just check these nursing scrubs out. So, I’ve resolved to wear scrubs all day every day from now on. I mean, in a way I’m a doctor of Apple computer repair. Ok, ok. That’s a stretch. But seriously- pajamas all day long. Think about it.
You remember that absurd Tomahawk Skull Gauntlet that I promoted last week? And by absurd I mean most awesome ever. Well, it turns out there’s a whole online catalog full of Tomahawk Skull-related items just waiting to become presents this holiday season. I know because someone signed me up for the regular newsletter without my permission. Totsch, I’m looking in your direction. While I’m on a roll with stellar ideas, I’m going to go ahead and make this an open letter to Apple to demand a Tomahawk Skull Edition MacBook and MacBook Pro. Nothing says “back up off my portable” like an angry skull with claws. Claws that are on fire. Whoa.
Seriously, I’d better quit before I get too geeked out. Have a great week, everybody, and to help you out this season, email coupon code “Pajamas” to email@example.com before December 25th for $10 off your next MacBook Pro LCD repair.

Pa-rumpumpumpum, everybody. It’s December already. How about that. Feels like the fall months always slip by so quickly, doesn’t it?. I was just getting used to the cooler weather and the vibrant changing colors, and pow- now it’s snowing and all the soft-rock stations are playing Christmas music. Actually, they have been since Halloween. It’s ridiculous.
So did you all take advantage of Apple’s Black Friday sales? A few hundred bucks off a new MacBook Pro is nothing to shake a stick at. And speaking of nothing to shake a stick at, check out the most gratuitous and sure-to-be sought after Christmas gift of the season. Move over, Tickle Me Elmo.
Well, what haven’t I covered yet? In brief:
-Happy belated Thanksgiving to you all. It’s the best day of the year. Football, family, meats stuffed with other meats. I’m counting down the days until next year’s. 361.
-Big 12 football. What a great weekend. KU vs. Mizzou was one of the better games I’ve ever watched. We have to keep it hush hush around here, though. The boss went to Mizzou.
-Hawaii > Kansas City. Mostly.
Ok, friends. Hope you have a delightful week and can recover from last week’s gluttony. Go take a nap.
