Can't. My replicator is down.

As if the humor level of this thread wasn't already sinking rapidly, I add a Star Trek joke...

For what it's worth, I actually found it quite funny. That may or may not be indicative of a need to get a life. The fact I've become a "Mac Enthusiast" somewhere between my rant about Sandworms of Dune and this post lends credence to that theory...

You might want to be careful: it could indicate that your sense of humour resembles mine, which is not something I’d wish on the general public.

Really, I don’t think Jawbone’s sex life is very proper content for this thread!

(I’m only doing this because you started the Earl Grey punning!)

To illustrate how "not really awake" I was, I sort of noticed pun potential with your post, but let it go... That's just not like me when I'm awake.

NOW, with Earl Gray nowhere around, I'm still sick, but I'm watching my church's service live via the Intarwebs while filling out forms for ministerial license requirements.

I'm just a a-rockin' and a-rollin' tonight.

This thread has become like everyone's Twitter.

No, you'd be a dork if you were looking out over a picture of the Caribbean Sea on your iPhone....

Okay, I'm at a Dunkin Donuts now, but still in the trunk. Using DD's free WiFi this time. I can tell I'm at a DD because I hear cops talking...a lot of them. Yet, they don't hear me screaming and yelling for help. Maybe I'll e-mail the local Police Departments and see if that will help from my iPod touch. I know the general area where I am thanks for the great new "Location" feature of the iPod touch. Best $20 I've ever spent. I really wish my kidnapper would find my iPod and use it for music instead of listening to this o'skool country genre he has going. The bad music ultimately will do me in, or the iPod's battery life.

Question, how can I tap into a power source in the trunk to charge my iPod? I have direct access to some crappy speakers. Can I "MacGyver" something together with that?

I'm in the lounge at school, surfing a bit before class starts. It is usually fairly calm here early, so it's a nice place to sort of wake up ("sort of" is the best kind of waking up). My coffee is still hot, I'm listening to iTunes radio, and all feels well.

Back home, considering dinner. We're meeting our best friends for a combined celebration: his birthday and our anniversary. It'll be fun.

Planning your weekend on Monday night? I never need that much planning-but that's not to say that I shouldn't do it anyway.

We're back from dinner (yummy grilled chicken with portobello mushrooms) and relaxing afterward.

I'm sitting in my car, getting a snack, and typing this up on my MacBook while listening to Patsy Cline and Hank Williams on my radio. (Yeah, I know... old school country, but what can I say?) I'm so glad my local donut place has free wi-fi, but I'm having trouble concentrating on what I'm typing due to this loud, irritating noise coming out of my trunk. (I knew I shouldn't let my drug-addict friend borrow my car.) I should check out that noise, but what the heck, it's an old, beater car that I was going to bring down to the junkyard tomorrow and get $50 for the scrap metal. The last time I did this, they even let me pull the lever that starts up the car-compactor.... cool stuff.

Dude, do I know you? Can you turn Hank Williams back on? I was getting used to that particular tune. Anyway, please avoid the bumps in the road, I have a serious migraine going on. Oh, any left over donuts? Little hungry back here.

Lastly, before you get only $50 bones for the car, please remember to swipe my iPod touch.

I'm lying on my living room floor listening to the Mae station on Pandora and browsing the web because my "furnished" duplex didn't come with any kind of desk. I just finished supper (biscuits and gravy with a couple eggs over-easy) and now I'm contemplating playing guitar to kill some time. And I also made this:

Feeling like doodie in the school lounge, waiting for class time. Big weather change overnight, and I'm feeling miserable because of it-joint pain, lethargy, wanna crawl back in bed... Strong coffee not effective. Fortunately there's a guest speaker in my morning class, and that means it should be interesting. I hope my afternoon classes are gentle...

Yes.
But then any large city can - though somewhat less cinematically.
