Manolo says, this week’s Puzzle Corner contains the televised ladies of law enforcement.
Manolo says, the weather has finally turned warm, and that impeccably dressed man who looks vaguely like Derek Jeter has finally, after much hinting on your part, asked you to accompany him to dinner and the concert of jazz trombone at Carnegie Hall.
And while you have your doubts about the concert, this despite his assurances that it will be “off the hook”, you have no doubts about what shoes you will wear: these sleek and streamlined metallic wedge sandals from Botkier.
With luck, the post-concert evening will turn chilly, and he will offer you his coat.
Manolo says, here are the few links which may perhaps amuse…
Across the parking lot the Crab Shack loudspeaker bellowed “Baker, party of six! Baker, party of six!” Even from 100 yards the air was thick with frying oil. He wanted to shout, “Bakers, save yourselves! Don’t do it!”
Manolo says, it is Tuesday, time to see what the Manolo is…
Normally, the Manolo is not the gadget person, someone who must each week rush out and obtain the latest piece of technological gimcrackery, however, many of the Manolo’s friends have been recommending the tiny little mini-computer, the Asus Eee PC as being suitable for the boulevardier blogger such as the Manolo.
“It is light and small and can be easily fitted into your man bag,” said one helpful friend.
“The Manolo does not have the ‘man bag’. It is the Swaine Adeney Brigg document case!”
“Whatever, it’s perfect for you, Manolo.”
And so the Manolo purchased this little inepensive computer and it arrived yesterday. And now, today, the Manolo is sitting in the cafe, sipping the cappuccino, and blogging to you with his new machine. Yes, the Asus Eee PC is very tiny, and light, and powerful enough to surf the internets, but unfortunately, the keyboard is too small for the Manolo’s thick and inelegant fingers, and this has been terribly frustrating, as the Manolo is the touch-typer of some ability.
The Manolo suspects that he will use this new machine occasionally, but will ultimately rely upon his beloved MacBook.
Although, this objet d’art calls powerfully to the Manolo.
“Buy me, use me, love me,” says its siren song.
