I first set out to share my story as Mrs. Siri shortly after moving to Cupertino from San Francisco in the Spring of 2012. After Siri had made her big unveil with iOS 5, I realized she would be a permanent fixture in our life and it was not to make the move to the mothership. I needed to share the strange new world I had found myself in as being an Apple Wife in Silicon Valley.
This weekend I made my first venture to the Tech Museum. I’ve been pestering my husband about going for awhile, but for some reason he didn’t get that a tech museum in the heart of Silicon Valley would be incredibly well-funded. Well, let me tell you – it was awesome! It was like the Exploratorium but on speed and completely adult-friendly.
I ventured onto Twitter for the first time this week. I know, I know, I am so behind the times and totally not cool, but I never really understood the draw before. Now that I’ve been dangling my toes in the bird bath for a couple days I’m starting to get it.
In honor of Pi Day I am indulging in an ode to pies. I LOVE baking pies. Unfortunately I love eating pies as well so they don’t make an appearance in my kitchen often. Many people seem to be intimidated of the pie-making process, which I attribute largely to the crust portion of the ordeal.
Since moving to Cupertino I have heard endlessly about the Duke of Edinburgh. It is an English Pub in a Chinese shopping center, and happens to be across the street from our apartment. We have ventured over for dim sum but had not made the journey for fish and chips. Which is really silly considering every local I have met knew where I lived in reference to the Duke.
A friend of mine sent me the link to his new company, Musiccas. And let me tell you, I was floored. “MUSICCAS streamlines the media intensive audition process by automating the submission and receipt of audition material.” That is directly from the website which also has a snazzy video about the process. But it really does just that – it makes auditioning simple.
