Everyone should have their very own Genius.

0627071131My studio and therefore, my life, have been in chaos since summer started. I"m not complaining, and I admit, some of the craziness is self-imposed.

Because I'm not schooling and we don't have to be anywhere at any time, I usually take the summer months to re-group. (I'm guessing most real teachers do this too.)

One of the projects on my to-do list is getting my G4 and G5 Power Macs upgraded and cleaned out so I can do stuff, which means I'm spending lots of time doing one-to-one classes with a Genius.

But yesterday, the G4 proceeded to EAT the OS X Tiger upgrade disk, and all 80 gigs I'm running froze like the polar ice caps.

So I hauled it down to the Apple Store to have my very own Genius fix the thing. He's the perfect mix of nerdiness and hipness (exactly like those PC/Mac commercials), with a fabulous sense of humor and a high tolerance for middle-aged wise-cracking Cuban women. ;-)

Now the thing is upgraded and it just screams! And God bless my hip, nerdy Genius who taught me how to categorize and code my photos in iPhoto in such a way that it all makes sense to me.

So, now it's close to midnight and I really should have been in bed hours ago, but here I am still playing and feeling crazy and smart all at once. And I Like It. =D
