here are a few reasons i want a mac...

Ben and I both desire to own one of these incredible machines.  Since we're house-sitting for Bobby and Kelli this weekend, I figured I would take advantage of the fact that they are fortunate enough to own a Mac.  Currently, Ben is asleep and I can't seem to find a comfortable position, so I resorted to a few 7th grade tactics.  What can you expect at 1:17 in the morning?  

(P.S. I get annoyed when people say redundant things like 7A.M. in the morning...duh, the A.M. implies morning.  You can use one or the other, but you don't need both.)

DISCLAIMER: It is late, I know I don't look cute...that's not the point!  Try and see the humor as I do.

I have always wanted a twin!  (Maybe one that's not connect to me though...)


Oh, I almost forgot to mention the theme of these pictures.  I'm trying to show off my new teeth.  My bottom braces were taken off earlier this week, so I want the world to see how nice my mouth looks now.  In these shots, I've got on my night guard (I grind my teeth) and a stellar bottom retainer.  Ben is so lucky that he gets to sleep next to me each night!  :)


Square head, large nose, tiny eyes...just plain ugly!  (Yet those bottom teeth are still so straight)


A "normal" picture to use as a comparison.


If I can take this x-ray picture with a computer, why the heck does it cost so much for a similar photo with my orthodontist?  Okay, so it's not quite the same...in fact, this is much scarier!


Tasteful, artistic...black & white!  :)  I'm also doing my best to show off those pearly whites.  (You can't blame me, braces are not cheap.  I'm so thankful my mom and dad paid for them the first time around.  I had no idea how much they could set you back.  Ben and I are saving now for our kids...we might have enough banked by then, but there are no guarantees.)


WARNING: Extreme close-up!


Hottie!  (Enough said.)


This post might be deleted tomorrow morning - a few hours of sleep might change my mind!

P.S.  I'm pretty sure the Apple company is going to come knocking on my door...hoping to use this as a great form of advertising for their incredible machines!  (Oh, and the formatting on Blogger works much better with a Mac...reason enough to make the switch.)

Love it! I'm a HUGE Mac fan - I bought mine just about a year ago after owning a really crappy Compaq and then using my Dad's Dell after the Compaq died right after its 3 year warranty went up - how convenient! Anyway, I will never ever go back to a PC again - I have not had a single problem with my Macbook and I love it more than I should probably love a computer :) Also if you buy one around back to school, they usually throw in some good deals like free ipods and printers!

Oh and you'll get to play on photobooth all the time and create even more awesome self portraits :-D

Your teeth look awesome by the way! I need to dig my retainer out of a box so I can fix the small gap in my front teeth before August!

Okay, so I can't get back to sleep at 4:00 a.m. and what do I do but read your blog post.... Needless to say, I may NEVER get back to sleep. You are one scary, but creative, woman! Seriously, I love the teeth; they are gorgeous!

Dusty & Kara have a Mac and love it. Though I think Kara's financial software doesn't work quite the same on the Mac. But who buys a Mac to run financial software anyway???

Wow...I don't know what to say, Anne, except you're right...Ben is one LUCKY DAWG!! :) Lovely teeth...I've been tempted to get my bottom teeth "re-braced", but as you mentioned it's not cheap. :)
