RNC Opening Day/Apple Brand Loyalty Vol. 1

So I think that we're gonna go out at least on Sunday for the massive protest, though I am definitely interested in some of the other actions that are happening (bugger our camera, which decided that now was a good time to stop working properly. I'm sure that dropping it didn't help. my partner again tells me that Mercury is in retrograde, which may explain why her laptop died on us y'day). Speaking of which, although the Apple stores look cool, the fact that this issue exists to begin with has opened up the first crack in my solid wall of brand loyalty that may graduate into a full-fledged fissure. Wow - hooked on phonics is really helping my alliterative skills.

But this is just classic, below:
