I am becoming an old, tottering man. I am rarely seen in public without my geritol.
Ok, not really. But I think I am getting old.
The proof? I shudder to admit this – I bought a book on how to use the new Mac operating system, OS X 10.5 (Leopard). A book. I bought a book – you know, like Turning on the Computer for Dummies or When Did They Take Away Floppy Drives. And I run Macs for crying out loud – the computer for idiots. And I bought… a book on how to run the computer for idiots. And I am excited about the book. This is horrifying.
I used to know stuff like this inside and out – and this is exactly what old, tottering people always say. It is bad, very bad. But the truth is I don’t have a clue how to operate iFilm, iMovie, iBreath, iType, iDream of Jeanie or any of these other programs. Garage Band? Hello? I have a mini-dvd camcorder and have NO idea how I am supposed to upload these silly little discs onto my sexy iMac. This is a sad admission. But admitting you have a problem is apparently the first step in… recovery?
