You snooze, you bruise.

We're really enjoying our new iPads, although I think I'm getting along better with mine than Debbie is with hers. According to Apple, the iPad is a bit heavier than its predecessor, and while I can sort of detect that extra weight, she's experienced it up close and personal, as it were. (As it was? As it is? As it ever shall be?)

In fact, she may be the only person on the planet who's experienced self-induced blunt force trauma via her iPad, and not just once, but twice. See, she likes to read in bed and...well, here's a professional artist's rendering of the brutal sequence of events that will tell the story better than I ever could.

Thus we see the hazards associated with attempts at nocturnal multitasking, wherein reading while sleeping with a heavy object hovering over one's face can lead to a literal rude awakening. And, believe it or not, there was blood. I told her she's going to have to start sleeping in a football helmet with a faceguard.

The first time this happened, I threatened to blog about it, but relented and chalked it up to "just one of those freakish things." But twice makes a meme and we're all about memes here at the Gazette. Plus, I told her I was going to do this. But you're my witness, in case her heavy iPad lands somewhere else tonight, if you get my drift.

Note to self. Never fall asleep with kindle!

Wow! That artwork is just (I can't think of the right word to go here so I'll think about it awhile).

I asked my wife to get me an iPad for my birthday because she would never let me use the one we've had about a year. It's another version 2 but suits me fine. My most-used apps are MLB at Bat, Tivo, Weatherbug and USA Today. And the latest I'm enjoying is Show of Hands. It's very interesting to see the opinions of groups identified by geography, gender, and political tendency in this app. Which are your most used apps?

Oh yeah, the word I was looking for is "stunning". If you look it up on dictionary.com you can ignore the definition that includes "excellence" and "beauty" but the others are apt. But, maybe that's just me.
