Geeks! Geeks! Geeks! Out and about!

July 5th, 2004 · 4 Comments

That’s what Abigail was shouting the other night at the dinner table in her excitement. We had just told the girls that the Wednesday night concert series was beginning this week, a special summer time we enjoy like Christmas, and I think she was remembering how Ted’s self-named Geeks group met during the picnics last year.

But she could have been exclamining about our travel schedule this summer: we are going to be out and about.

The Leung Family Road Show, otherwise known as Five Sardines in a Van, may be coming to a city near you!

And we’ll discover whether Sam Ruby is right

The girls are already packing their paper laptops in preparation…

    Does that papertop have a Pentium 4 or 5?

    More likely a G3/G4, otherwise it’d get too hot & burst into flames. (That’s why it wouldn’t be a G5 yet…)

    Ah, geek humour, what hope does the world have…

    I checked with the girls…although they are constantly talking about the G5s they want, it appears that these paper laptops are Pentium 5s (they have IBM, or as Michaela says, MBI, on them!)

    Phil, great to hear from you again 🙂

    > Phil, great to hear from you again 🙂
    Thanks, it was nice to be welcomed back. 🙂 Actually, it was kinda weird because I had a brief thought as I checked for replies along the lines of wondering if anybody would have noticed, and low and behold there was your comment. Warm fuzzies all round. 🙂
