Confession is good for your deal loving soul. Share your confessions with you deal loving forumites.




Was on a ghost tour once and took a picture of an alleged haunted building with an iphone. I looked at my images and realized something was glowing in the window. I cried out to the tour guide, "WHAT IS THIS?" The whole group came over and looked at my phone and people started freaking out. The tour guide said "She appears to be in the period's clothing, it is likely the lady of the house who lost many family members in that house." While he continued the story, I reshot to see if there was a scientific explanation. Sure enough, I was able to recreate it because of light flare off the lens of the camera. By then the group was having so much fun from the buzz that had been created. The event excited youth and they became more engaged, took pictures, asked more questions. I did not have the heart say anything that would dampen the fun. Sorry science, I owe you one.

I rarely order McDonald's chicken McNuggets, but when I do, I never get any of the sauces. I eat them plain. smiley-shocked003

Nobody else was home, so I chose hot dogs for my Easter dinner.

I don't like any of the new SW films.

And I'm not all that fond of 2 of the original three.

Wait a minute! pRICE cUBE asks everyone else to confess but then doesn't confess himself. That ghost story was definitely not a confession. No deal man. You first!



"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan

Whaaaa??? Blasphemy ... I won't touch jelly, if I have a choice. Preserves are the way to go. I once accidentally purchased strawberry jelly, and I was like, WTF is this cr@p...?! Why would ANYONE buy this, compared to either jam or preserves?

As for my own confessions...

I listen to Taylor Swift.

There, I said it. grinning smiley

I recently “fixed” a friends windows office install - code finally got pulled. With another code I paid $5 for. Didn’t charge her cause I felt bad that she paid someone else to install windows office for her college laptop.

On or under the not very big table in the bedroom corner which is my office nook, there are 7 Macs and 6 PCs.

I do not have a problem.






edit: whoops, forgot 1 Mac. Lost count...

Don’t feel bad. Friday, I think, I had a half dozen hot dogs over the course of two meals. Speaking of which, cole slaw as a condiment. Yum!

I was supposed to start my diet today. My future daughter in law baked an apricot crumb bread and brought it for dinner yesterday.

I ate 3 pieces this morning.

There is always mañana.

Do Stinkpads still make it absurdly easy to upgrade RAM and/or hard drive by locating both right under the flip-up keyboard as with older versions? Whatever else they may have done wrong over the years, they absolutely got that bit right and Apple would have done us all a favor by copying that design.

I have received a new Mac mini, M1; IPhone 12 mini, magic keyboard, Apple Pencil...the IPad Air is has not shipped.

I am afraid to open them. This is a first,

I am afraid the Mac Mini will not work with my Lg 600 monitor. In my mind I want the IMac.

I think the phone might be too little, replacing 6 plus. I have some vision issues, cataracts, readers,meta

The iPad was ordered without cellular, which I use multiple times daily. Need to exchange that.

These were all purchased with AmEx reward points and are gifts, Fulfilled by Apple in Lebanon TN. They are shipped from Apple. No one at apple seems to know if I can exchange them at the store

You'll probably have to call the store, because they may or may not have the unit you want in stock.
