|MMMark's Whycandoo Room: The Apple|
6 comments30 Mar 2002 @ 01:42 by jazzolog : Two Birds in Paradise
What a lovely post to find this morning! Mark is one of the best straightmen anyone could possibly Instant Message with, and if Michael has half the fun with him that Dana and I do he's having a great life. Now if this alleged wife of Mark's ever comes forth to corroborate on the situation, we will have the rarest and most valuable petition for us all: a happy family. That there are apple pies in the picture, with crust from scratch, is just about good enough for me---even if Mark has to take one in the face from time to time. I'll put my name to this springtime message...right on the dotted line.
Thank you, Mark, and love to you and yours,

To clarify the apple pie making- Mike peels, Mark slices and I do the crust and put it all together. I have convinced the guys that the pie tastes better when everyone contributes contrary to the old adage- too many cooks spoil the pot. (They also know that the pie wouldn't get made without their contributions.)
So yes I am alive and well in Pasadena. I am the quieter one in the family at times. But it really depends on the subject.
Martha, now back to a computer game.

It feels nice to me to see a husband and wife or partners commenting in the same space. I can't get my wife to join this outfit---although I don't try too hard. She puts on this huge breastplate every day and goes over to About.com to fight with the fascist rabble as to whether "nuke 'em" is actually the most appropriate foreign policy. I figure that's noble computer work. And she brings forth a pie now and then too. Ain't life grand?

To answer your question, yes life is grand and Apple is the superior computer. We have four in the house (two each), all different models and challenging for Mark to keep updated. He does a great job. I find my computers behave better when I talk nice to them. Postive energy.
Martha, on to Easter dinner.

You kind of look like the guy from "Hunter" in this picture, Mark. Weird. I hope the money earning thing goes well. I like the bit about your son, too. Little kids are the best.
P.S. I wish I had resources I could bring to bear. I wrote one of my author friends about your book as I said I would(just a mention) and I haven't heard from him in the several weeks since. Crazy authors... probably changed his e-mail address.

I just absolutely adore this! (You know my feelings about the petition thing, and we agree.) After hearing so much about Mikey and feeling your contagious love for him, I want to reach out and hug the picture--both of you!!! And where are you, Martha, my friend, so I can reach out and hug all three?
This is that special side of you that I love so much, Mark! It's in your serious logs if one reads between the lines, but this just hits me smack dab in the face and reminds me that behind everything you do and say lurks this incredibly loving being.
Love that computer game thing, Martha, especially since I've found myself doing the same thing. Every time I read it, so I'll say it now, I want to ask you which one, and can we play together on the internet? Much love to you all ~ Tricia
