The iTampon, Take II

Remember that time I told you about my new iPad, and my on-going (not-so-funny) joke about the iTampon?  I was so looking forward to getting my fancy little stylus pen-- to avoid fingerprints on the screen, but mostly so that I could refer to it as the "iTampon."

It arrived in the mail a while ago, and it is everything I dreamed it would be:

I have been calling it the iTampon ever since. Even more gloriously, the children all refer to it as such as well. "Could you hand me the iTampon, Blythe?"
"Hmm, I'm trying to do this thing... wait, where's the iTampon?"

And so on.

Yep, I'd call this a success.

Questionable Product Names

I just... I dunno. I feel like maybe this product name isn't saying what they think it's saying.

Thoughts on a Saturday Night

1. If you allow lots of time for parking, knowing how bad it can be, you will find a spot immediately. Consequently, you will be very early.
2. If you are very early, the people you are meeting will be stuck in terrible traffic, possibly on the wrong side of a drawbridge.
3. How does bowling work if people are also drinking? I look forward to finding out.
