Cool Yule Retail Stores

We visited the new Apple Store in the Cambridgeside Galleria today with our friends Charlie and Carie. Being able to wander around in a space like that and play with all the cool tech is really great. It had an unexpected effect: Lisa is now fascinated with digital video! We talked for a long time with the store clerk, who was great, about the DV cameras, how they work, and what the path is for getting them into the Mac to edit them and then burn them to DVD. That might be a really cool thing to have if we’re on the other side of the country (of course, then our parents would have to get DVD players–details…). I actually heard Lisa say, “If we get you a new computer, can we get it with a DVD burner?” I tell you: more visits to the Apple Store are definitely in the cards. 🙂

Until we meet again

Great party last night to say goodbye to our friend Dubhfeasa, my classmate Niall’s girlfriend. She’s heading back to Ireland where she has a great job in a hospital near Dublin. She’s one of our favorite people, and we’ll miss her tremendously. We’ll have to get to the Emerald Isle soon to visit her.
