Actually, there is an iMac.

Well, it's quite obvious you don't live in the computer/geek/IT world.  and I-Mac is an actual computer.     http://www.apple.com/imac/

There is also a whole line of MacIntosh items.   Yes, it is often shortened to Mac.   But, Mac isn't synonymous with Apple. Macs are simply one part of the overall Apple line of products.

And now I can't get a stupid joke/song out of my head, "Don't sit under the Apple II-e, with anyone else but me." Oh man. I'm such a geek!

The Macintosh was the first compuer I ever worked on in an office--first office job.  It was way way way before windows and I just thought it awesome.

1.  What was the last thing you did for your kid? Put a snack in DS's backpack with a little note.

2.  What things do you like doing with your kids? Taking them to the zoo, amusement parks, camping. Anything that gets them running around and laughing.

3.  What memories stand out about your own mom...  Good or bad?  Since my mom passed last year, all sorts of memories have come back that I hadn't thought of in so long.  Most of them good. But being human, she did make her share of mistakes, so yeah, some bad. All in all she was a great mother and did the best she could. Can't really ask for more than that.

4.  How many kids do you have?  Is it a # you planned for/wanted? Two, and it's exactly what I wanted.

5.  Do you have a pet(s)? A dog and three cats.

Nope.  An iMac is a specific product made by Apple.  As was the Macintosh.

It is hard to find decent (for our tastes) clothes for teens. The shorts are all very short and my dc is not really into capris anymore like she used to when she was younger. She can still get away with wearing short(er) shorts though as she hasn't gotten cellulite yet lololol.
