Aaron Sorkin Makes My Life

Aaron Sorkin, creator of the West Wing, was asked what a meeting between Obama and Jed Bartlet would be like.

The answer may cause spontaneous nerdgasm. And is brilliant.

Only in LA

I've figured out why in TV shows, everyone is insanely hot--even the people in the background. It's because here, in LA, it actually happens.

I must say there's a huge upside to having an entire city of wanna-be actors needing day jobs.

My Mac crashed. Gloriously. As in, there's no bootable drive that it can detect and it won't launch from the OSX install DVD. I'm not freaking out because a) I convinced the Apple people they wanted to give me AppleCare even though I'd missed the window by a month and b) I backed up everything right before the crash. So I take my poor, abused Mac into the store.

I'm greeted by two really, really hot women and one cute (but kind of young) guy. This day? Already better than it could have been.

I next wander over to the Genius Bar to try and get a stand-by appointment. They guy who comes to help me? WOW. Yes, please. Feel free to help me out however you want. Can I see you tomorrow? Can my appointment be with YOU? PLEASE?

So after I make my appointment, I think to myself, "This would be a great time to look into AppleCare and see if they'll give it to you despite the fact you're a month late." So one of the hot girls calls a manager who ends up being a hot guy with rainbow eyes. I'm not kidding. His eyes were bands of color, going from brown to light yellow-brown to green to a thin band of green-gold to black. WOW.

He explains that I need to call the AppleCare center to make sure they'll give me the service retroactively, and while I'm waiting Matt will sit with me to make sure everything is OK. Matt is California cute--kind of scruffy, skater/surfer kind of college guy. I can't go wrong in this place. It's like speed dating with electronics. I approve. And I'm going back tomorrow.
