Posts Tagged ‘vegetarians’

Yesterday, this from my cousin’s facebook page:

Just had a sobering conversation with my Dad who just updated his last will & testament. “Paul…I want them to pull the plug if I ever become a vegetarian.” Classic! lol.

I told Paul that, in all fairness, if I ever became a vegetarian he had the green light to pull the plug on me too.

Along similar lines, Akemi was trying to use Siri, the voice-activated personal assistant app on her iPhone the other night.  She commanded it to bring up her “Line” app, a Japanese version of Skype, with…well…predictable results:

Akemi: Line.

Siri: I don’t understand “I”.

Akemi: Line!

Siri: I don’t know what you mean by “find”.

Akemi: LINE!

Siri: I don’t know what that means.  If you like, I can search the web for “lying”.

Akemi: No.  Line!

Siri: You don’t have any events on your calendar at 9 a.m.  Shall I create it?

Akemi: No.  Line!

Siri: I don’t know what you mean by “nine”.  Okay, I set up your event for today.

Akemi: (anguished cry as she flops back onto the bed).

I shouldn’t laugh.  For some reason and despite my futile attempts to change it, my iPhone has made me someone else from my contact list. Thus, whenever I try to use Siri, the conversation goes something like this:

Me: Time?

Siri: Marolyn, the time is 5:15 p.m.

Me: I’m not Marolyn.

Siri: I don’t know that that means.  If you like, I can search the web for “I’m not Marolyn”.

Me:  No.  I’M not Marolyn.

Siri: I don’t know what you mean by “No I am not Marolyn”   How about a web search for it?

Me: Please, stop calling me Marolyn.

Siri: Sorry, Marolyn, I can’t do that.  You’re not listening to the Music app.

ME: (anguished cry as I flop back onto the couch)
