An Open Letter to Steve Jobs

I only have eyyyyyeeessss foooo-ooorrr yoooooouuu!
or
The Apple of My Eyes??
Dear Mr. Jobs,

I ruined a beloved sweater today. I ruined it with excessive drooling caused by the launch of your new gizmo.

I expect to be reimbursed for the cost of the sweater in rebate form when I am finally able to get my hot little Canadian hands on one. In fact, you had better include the cost of a new pair of TOMS, too. (I wasn't wearing TOMS at the time, but it would be a nice gesture.)

I will be available to discuss the terms of my request with your rugged British designer from the demonstration video, preferably in a dimly-lit restaurant over a fine meal and a glass of wine...

Thank you, as always, for the inspired works and for distracting me from the world's troubles with shiny, shiny things.

I remain forever loyal (addicted) to your respectable and certainly evil empire.

Sincerely,
Carly

  1. I know this is rude to ask, but have you had your eyes done? :)

    I just watched the iPad video and that gadget is pretty groovy. Maybe I'm just old fashioned, but I wish it had a magic pen/stylus so you could draw/sketch on it too. Plus I want it to cost $129 (hey, a girl can dream, right?).

    Good luck on getting your new sweater.

  2. Haha. Hilarious. I guess I'll just have to be content with my beloved iPhone for now...But it WOULD be a nice gesture if Mr. Jobs would only respond to, and fulfill, your request.

  4. LOL. I've been waiting to see that lovely piece of shiny wonder. If only my budget included new and expensive toys for no reason other than want. Hope you get your sweater, at least!

  5. Ditto!!
    I was drooling over just the same thing, yesterday...and today...and probably for many days to come. I think Mother's Day is coming at a perfect time this year, right?!

Who doesn't love comments? I appreciate every single one and try to reply to each. Unless you're a no-reply commenter. Then I can't. And I have a little sad moment. Like a dropped ice cream cone. So if you're a no-reply commenter and have a question, check the comment thread and I'll try to reply there. :-)
