An electric evening

April 6, 2012


Samith came in to Seward! Steph and the boys are out of town, so we invited him to come to church with us. Afterwards, he came over for frozen pizza while he and Lloyd geeked out.

boys and toys

Yep, that’s Samith’s PC laptop, his Apple laptop, his Windows 8 tablet. Lloyd’s iPad, and my netbook (I wanted to join in the fun.) Never mind that they each have iPhones and our regular computers are also in the room. I think we maxed out the machines-to-humans ratio. (If you are hearing us, Computer Overlords, I am on your side.)

Samith’s tablet was a gift from a conference he attended! Holy cow! I must be going to the wrong kind of conferences. We’re lucky to get a tote bag, and those stingy Lutherans always want the name badges back.

The tablet bag was pretty nifty. It’s made by a company called Bolder Path. They take old vinyl banners from previous conferences and recycle them into laptop/tablet/messenger bags to distribute as gifts at tech conferences. Cool, huh?

Handmade and awesome.

He probably had to give his name badge back, too.

    I wonder what you could repurpose a namebadge into.

    I, for one, welcome our new computer overlords.

    Do you think they’ll capture people like Samith and Lloyd to enslave their brains?

    That tablet cover looks pretty heat-resistant, like an astronaut could wear it to Mars. Are you sure the computer tech guys haven’t already been to Mars? Are they holding back information?

    Did’t you realize that frozen pizza is hard on teeth? The boys probably didn’t notice, though.
