What my June 30th deadline means is that I am entitled to buy up to $215
in gifts of Microsoft software (at Microsoft store prices!) by 7pm
Pacific time tomorrow for either the Mac or PC for anyone I consider a
So, if any of you want a software title from MS, I cannot guarantee its
availability (the Microsoft store was crazy today with people buying
everything!) but if it is available and I am able I will buy you a nice
gift. As a friend. (Windows 98 Upgrade for fifteen bucks?! Who can
resist... "I'll take 27!" :)
I of course can get you MS tee shirts and golf tees and jock straps and
condoms from the store, too, but my credit on those doesn't run out
tomorrow... so I can get them any time until the end of August.
(Actually, in all seriousness, ARE there MS jock straps and/or condoms,
and if not, why not? :)
Also, I don't know if the distribution list was working this weekend
when I epiphanied about the central theme of the 1990s, archived now
but that's not important right now, since there are MS Store bargains to
be had, and time is of the essence...
PS - If you're really nice to me, I'll buy you a Microsoft wall
calendar, too... lots of pictures of stuff from the Microsoft museum...
PSS - Since obviously I might be flooded with requests for software I'll
do the buying on a First-Come First-Served basis...
Bargain, n.: Something you can't use at a price you can't resist.
