Bossy has been busy researching Apple’s technological advances, and here are just a few of the reasons Bossy thinks you should give her a free Macbook Air for her Excellent Road Trip:
- It fits in a manilla envelope, and Bossy has one of those:
- It looks like a clam. A thin clam:
- The ‘O’ is still sandwiched between the ‘I’ and the ‘P’ and Bossy likes that in a keyboard:
- It hovers:
- When it’s opened it resembles the letter ‘L’:
- When two are opened they look like bookends:
- There are plenty of places for Bossy to store her orange Tic Tacs:
- Look ma, no wires!
This Apple Is So Luscious Bossy Can Taste It.
jessica saysJanuary 25, 2008 at 10:00 am
you seem to want one for all the same reasons as me!! however, the lack of a cd drive is what intrigues me most…
All Adither saysJanuary 25, 2008 at 10:01 am
Steve Jobs is dreamy. He looks a lot like your husband.
Nilsa S. saysJanuary 25, 2008 at 10:03 am
My household is Granny Smith Green with envy over the new Apple. Seriously, I don’t know how that company doesn’t take over the world.
Dr. Monkey saysJanuary 25, 2008 at 10:14 am
You hate our balls? Damn. My balls are my best characteristic. Now you hate them. Thanks for ruining my day.
liv saysJanuary 25, 2008 at 10:16 am
Oh, it’s a sexy lappy to be sure. It makes me sort of loathe my 1 year old macbook, in the same way that seeing my bf’s enormous screened iMac made me loathe my 17″. I kind of think that there should be at least a discount for alls of us bloggers what’re tryin’ to change the world thru navel gazing.
Suzy saysJanuary 25, 2008 at 10:21 am
Bossy does not really want one because when the battery dies, you have to SEND THE WHOLE THING BACK TO MAC to get a new one.
Miss Britt saysJanuary 25, 2008 at 10:26 am
I bow to your genius Bossy.
Tempered Woman saysJanuary 25, 2008 at 10:32 am
So I’ve been living in a cave and just saw a commercial for this yesterday and about wet myself I coveted so much. I’m a whore for processor speed and memory though and there are issues with battery (hubby said so). Still, I’d probably trade in the first born for one just to try it out.
And sorry Dr. Monkey- tis true. The only thing worse is the sight of them dangling when you bend over naked. Eww- I just shivered as I wrote that.
claude saysJanuary 25, 2008 at 10:36 am
OMG!!!! mens balls!!!! i’m dying. SOOOO TRUE. balls are yucky.
Alice saysJanuary 25, 2008 at 10:45 am
that IS a pretty computer. so pretty. my preeciiouussss. ACK NO DO NOT NEED. i don’t even USE macs, and i want one of those.
Nancy saysJanuary 25, 2008 at 10:46 am
I’ll wait for round two when they get the bugs out. I heard about the battery too, and that they heat up fast ‘cuz they are so thin. ?!?!
Balls? *cough* neutered
Mr Farty saysJanuary 25, 2008 at 10:47 am
Balls aside, what is it with women and wires?
Robin saysJanuary 25, 2008 at 10:49 am
Oooh, yes, balls are icky. Another good place to store your orange tick tacs though no?
soNOTcool saysJanuary 25, 2008 at 10:50 am
Orange tic tacs = Juno.
erin saysJanuary 25, 2008 at 10:54 am
Some of us LIKE the way men’s balls look!
Hotdog saysJanuary 25, 2008 at 10:58 am
I’m a huge tech-whore myself. And shoot, if you could get some smuck to give you one for free, why not? lol
i agree about men’s balls. they. are. nasty.
Junebug saysJanuary 25, 2008 at 10:58 am
Bossy, I saw these new air Macs and I want one too. I have a orange tic tacs in my purse right now. When you visit, I will share. I sometimes eat them in church because I am hungry. ;D
Jenn @ Juggling Life saysJanuary 25, 2008 at 10:59 am
Plus, Apples are healthy and it wasn’t too long ago that Bossy was feeling under the weather. Using an Apply each day could avoid a repeat of that!
Jenn @ Juggling Life saysJanuary 25, 2008 at 11:00 am
Okay,should have used the preview feature. That would be an APPLE each day, not an APPLY.
Marriage-101 saysJanuary 25, 2008 at 11:04 am
I didn’t think I wanted one but you convinced me with the orange tic tac storage capability.
MarathonMom saysJanuary 25, 2008 at 11:04 am
Have Eljo write a personal recommendation. Then there’s no way he can turn you down.
Howard saysJanuary 25, 2008 at 11:10 am
If you get one after this, I’m going to be sooooo… well… jealous.
I can’t wait until I can afford my new iMac. Then I buy one.
Patience come to me.
ricky saysJanuary 25, 2008 at 11:15 am
Boss, just got into a fight with the boss, but this post made it better… i like the commentary on men’s balls and where you can put your tic-tacs. i’m a gonna try that.
Avitable saysJanuary 25, 2008 at 11:18 am
With battery problems and no CD/DVD option, I don’t think it’s as awesome as it looks.
Kathy saysJanuary 25, 2008 at 11:24 am
Apple must have known I’m in the market for a new laptop.
No CD drive, eh? Between that and the storage, I think I’ll wait.
(It sure is pretty, though.)
Deb on the Rocks saysJanuary 25, 2008 at 11:25 am
“Look ma, no balls.” That’s what I should have said when I introduced my new girlfriend to my mother.
magpie saysJanuary 25, 2008 at 11:35 am
they’re paying you, right? they should be.
Oh, The Joys saysJanuary 25, 2008 at 11:37 am
Maybe you shouldn’t have said the “men’s balls” thing whilst sucking up to Mr. Jobs.
I can just see him now with a mirror between his legs going, “What? What?”
Jason saysJanuary 25, 2008 at 11:37 am
I hope you sent this post to his “people”.
I would give you one after that plea!
Wait, women hate men’s low hangers??
Tootsie Farklepants saysJanuary 25, 2008 at 11:45 am
The “men’s ball’s” comment was totally unexpected, equally hilarious, and sadly true.
andrea saysJanuary 25, 2008 at 11:48 am
I would be the happiest girl alive if I could get a Macbook or whatever they’re called these days. I would be very happy too if you got one of those super skinny ones and brought it when you visit ME on your road trip so I could drool over it.
Vanessa saysJanuary 25, 2008 at 11:48 am
While the lack of the cd drive makes it less appealing to me, I am lusting after a new MacBook. Badly.
Momo Fali saysJanuary 25, 2008 at 11:54 am
Thanks to loads of Christmas candy, my pants are almost big enough to put that in my back pocket.
Peg saysJanuary 25, 2008 at 11:58 am
We took a bite of the Apple in Dec and got an iPhone and an iMac. We are so in love, the MacBook will be next. Besides, this will leave more room in your van for you to load all of the crap, I mean trasures, in your basement and pass them out along the way. See how that works out?
Ava Von Snarky saysJanuary 25, 2008 at 12:06 pm
I love the levitating part. That is a nice feature in a computer, so space saving.
I agree, I can’t stand to look at men’s balls either. Blech!
Thank you for making me laugh.
mr.lootiatto saysJanuary 25, 2008 at 12:12 pm
thank god I got rid of mine, and the wires and speakers. take it from me, women hate those things.
Sarah, Goon Squad Sarah saysJanuary 25, 2008 at 12:23 pm
I heart it too. Tell Steve to hook me up. You can just bring it by on my stop.
jessicab saysJanuary 25, 2008 at 12:40 pm
Bossy definitely deserves to be hooked up.
Yeah, mens balls, not so attractive.
dlyn saysJanuary 25, 2008 at 12:42 pm
Rats – and I just bought a new computer. Whatever – Macs aren’t compatible for work anyway. Hope you get one though!
anastasia beaverhausen saysJanuary 25, 2008 at 12:51 pm
I heart Steve Jobs. And the stuff he dreams up. Smart is so Sexxaay!
we_be_toys saysJanuary 25, 2008 at 1:02 pm
Those are definitely three things that THIS woman hates to look at, unless the balls are arranged in what is known as a “Fruit Bowl” – then I’m compelled to look!
Tracey saysJanuary 25, 2008 at 1:07 pm
*SLURP* That is me licking up the drool running down my face. Apples are ever so yummy, are they not?
Redneck Mommy saysJanuary 25, 2008 at 1:09 pm
It would be hard for me to actually use that computer.
I’d be too busy fondling it to actually, you know, work.
Jacki saysJanuary 25, 2008 at 1:10 pm
You always crack me up! My hubby keeps hinting around that he would like one of these….
qt saysJanuary 25, 2008 at 1:25 pm
I was laughing so hard at the nastay balls comment, that as I quickly scrolled down through the comments, I saw that one started with SLURP and I got really, really scared.
But it was not a comment directed at the balls portion of the post, so I am able to exhale now, and continue laughing.
davido saysJanuary 25, 2008 at 1:30 pm
You women and your billionaires-so-sexy lust! I bet I’d be pretty sexy with a billion dollaz hanging from my balls.
I have a monstrous laptop, which either compensates for or correlates with other parts of my anatomy. 17″ Dell 9400. I decided to get the kind that spontaneously combusts when I say the magic keywords o’ destruction, because I’m radical like that.
Manic Mommy saysJanuary 25, 2008 at 1:33 pm
I strongly agree with OTJ that you should never insult a man’s balls when you’re trying to cajole him into giving you something for nothing.
Unless the sexy thing is letting him know maybe it could be sumthin’ for sumthin’
Foolery saysJanuary 25, 2008 at 1:41 pm
I’m Twittering this post because Twitter is dominated by MacLusters, who will appreciate it.
My old eMac will have to last me a while, unless, of course, Mr. Jobs is willing to give you a twofer for your left coast Mac friend Foolery. Let’s ask.
And is it me, or does Steve Jobs look an awful lot like Gelman?
HRH saysJanuary 25, 2008 at 1:48 pm
So right and the fact that you don’t have one (yet) is so wrong.
Scott-O-Rama saysJanuary 25, 2008 at 2:36 pm
I’ll totally get you one. Right after I sell my kidney. And get me one.
Women hate the look of men’s balls? Gawd, I didn’t know that. You miss so much when you’re gay. For the record though, I’m not to found of the look of a woman’s whoo hoo.
Sarcasta-Mom saysJanuary 25, 2008 at 2:58 pm
If Stevie gave all of us fabulous bloggers those sexy new machines, just think of all the great press he’d get throughout the blogoshere. Huh, huh? Hint, hint.
When I saw the commercial for that the other day, I wanted it so bad I almost cried….
Dharmamama saysJanuary 25, 2008 at 3:52 pm
Ricky said: Boss, just got into a fight with the boss, but this post made it better… i like the commentary on men’s balls and where you can put your tic-tacs. i’m a gonna try that.
*then* the slurp comment.
Too many orange tic-tacs in close proximity to men’s balls. And apples. I’ll never see the fruit, the candy, or the… fruits… in the same way again.
Dharmamama saysJanuary 25, 2008 at 3:56 pm
Oh, yeah – just remembered this tid-bit: Steve Jobs *totally* dissed writer and sex educator Violet Blue:
http://tinyurl.com/2q4yf3 (link to her site, with various explicit items)
Sewmouse saysJanuary 25, 2008 at 4:02 pm
I think Steve Jobs in that picture looks rather like the guy who played “Uncle Martin” in “My Favorite Martian”.
Sewmouse is old. Sewmouse cannot “do” Mac’s – Sewmouse is one of the few people on the planet able to cause a Mac to go BSOD.
Flea saysJanuary 25, 2008 at 4:10 pm
Hy hunny drools every time he even THINKS about the new Mac. But we just bought new Inspirons. 🙁 But Espresso is a nice laptop color. That’s what I keep telling myself.
Miss Wisabus saysJanuary 25, 2008 at 4:10 pm
It *is* rather splendid looking, but I can’t see myself ever needing one.
Who am I kidding? That’s so not about NEED.
Amy @ M&M of a Mommy saysJanuary 25, 2008 at 4:31 pm
Come on Steve, you can’t resist Bossy can you? And look at all the fabulous attention she is giving you.
I hadn’t even heard of this new-fangled MacBook Air until I visited her site.
Alex Elliot saysJanuary 25, 2008 at 4:39 pm
Steve should definitely give Bossy the Macbook Air! Her reasoning is brilliant.
Gigi saysJanuary 25, 2008 at 4:45 pm
Yum, orange Tic Tacs..
David saysJanuary 25, 2008 at 5:12 pm
You just haven’t seen enough men’s balls.
Julie Pippert saysJanuary 25, 2008 at 6:05 pm
You should get a case or twelve, one laptop for you and the rest as party favors.
nancypants saysJanuary 25, 2008 at 6:28 pm
It does look nice but I think I would accidentally run it through the washer and dryer and then I’d have to stick in a bag of rice to see if that would dry it out. But I don’t have a bag of rice that big.
I did have a Mac laptop but I traded her in for the glorious iMac desktop and I couldn’t be happier!
islaygirl saysJanuary 25, 2008 at 7:04 pm
So true about men’s balls, and David (a couple of comments above)? Is that an invitation?
I too love the macbook air. i REWIND THE TIVO just to watch the commercial over and over.
diesel saysJanuary 25, 2008 at 7:05 pm
And when the batteries go out, you just throw it away, right?
Reese saysJanuary 25, 2008 at 8:26 pm
yeah, I’m not a big fan of looking at guys’ balls either.
Alli ~Mrs. Fussypants saysJanuary 25, 2008 at 8:58 pm
Mah Beloved Bossy, I never disagree with you but, just this once…
Shh! Don’t tell.
Suebob saysJanuary 25, 2008 at 9:42 pm
I tried to get one from the tech guy at work today. All he had to offer me was a Dell desktop. Sigh.
Kristen saysJanuary 25, 2008 at 9:49 pm
ohmygod, I’m crying. LOL
flutter saysJanuary 25, 2008 at 9:58 pm
yep that is pretty sexy, those expensive bookends
Kelley saysJanuary 26, 2008 at 5:18 am
I am in love with my MacBook. Her name is Maya. But I would drop her like last seasons shoes for one of those babys.
Poor Maya is now covered in drool while I do a Homer Simpson over her hope-to-be replacement.
Good luck Bossy. Get me one too will ya? I will call Steve hawt too if it helps.
Balls McGee saysJanuary 26, 2008 at 8:10 am
Ugly balls???????????? Not if you dress them up a little. When I was first runner up in the State Fair Mr Balls Beauty contest, I put little bow ties on them and dipped them in silver and gold glitter. They were adorable!
PLO saysJanuary 26, 2008 at 11:33 am
The last line about the balls is too funny, you made me laugh out loud.
Dara saysJanuary 26, 2008 at 12:28 pm
Now, Bossy…I must take umbrage on the “balls” remark. Having just had a baby boy, I cannot stop gazing at his balls, or as my husband puts it, “his baby man junk”.
I know it makes me a bit of a freak, but being a female and giving birth to a male, is mind-blowing…the miracle of conception and all that jazz.
So, I am a big fan of the package. Also of the Apple of which you speak. Perhaps if I pay special attention to my hubby’s balls, he may feel inclined to purchase me one of those….I’m just sayin’.
Omyword! saysJanuary 26, 2008 at 2:07 pm
I don’t know who said “I’m a whore for processor speed and memory,” but that person is my new best friend.
But Bossy, I think that just on account of the time you put in to making all those pretty pictures, Steve should just come over and give you one tomorrow.
That said, I think I want to have sex with Air, but I don’t necessarily want to own it.
FENICLE saysJanuary 26, 2008 at 3:10 pm
Now those are expensive book ends!
Madame Jozet at Halushki saysJanuary 26, 2008 at 3:25 pm
It’s so sleek!
I’m sure it would make an equally lovely place mat or pantyliner.
Mrs. G. saysJanuary 26, 2008 at 3:26 pm
It is a sweet and crisp looking apple.
BrentD saysJanuary 26, 2008 at 5:12 pm
Wires are a no no?
I guess that explains a lot the failure of my romance novel, Cables of Desire.
Should have checked with you first.
seattle mamacita saysJanuary 26, 2008 at 9:19 pm
fancy book ends might have to get me a pair then…
Haley-O saysJanuary 26, 2008 at 10:45 pm
I waaaaaaaan it! And, I thoroughly enjoyed this post. Cracked me right up. BALLS.
Helen K saysJanuary 27, 2008 at 9:09 am
If you get one of these for free on the back of that post you’ll have to let us all know so we can do the same!
Love your work bossy! x
Haley saysJanuary 27, 2008 at 12:26 pm
It’s pretty hot I must say. 😀 You posts are always the best for laughs!!!
erin saysJanuary 27, 2008 at 2:51 pm
I want a floating laptop!
Leaf, probably... saysJanuary 27, 2008 at 5:01 pm
Oh… I want. I don’t care How many Kidneys I’m going to need to sell for it. It will all be worth it when I have that sweet, sweet manilla evelope hovering above my desk, covered in cocktail sauce.
di saysJanuary 27, 2008 at 7:36 pm
you certainly have no problem with asking for anything and everything
Prof. J. saysJanuary 27, 2008 at 8:21 pm
You should so get an Apple. For free. The good will of your readers should sway Mr. Jobs.
Emily saysJanuary 28, 2008 at 11:16 am
In all it’s perfection, is missing one thing: the CD drive. That’s like not having a kidney.
mj aka sugarmama saysJanuary 29, 2008 at 12:14 am
Women hate balls? really? hehe…
Lori saysJanuary 29, 2008 at 6:01 pm
I totally hate the look of wires and balls. Totally. And I wish I had saved for a Macbook instead of the piece of crap that has Vista installed.
