Printer Ink

A little back story first.

We had a printer. The printer got finicky and would display a print head error even though there wasn’t one. We went months without a printer. A new printer was purchased. It ran out of ink. We have gone weeks without a printer again. Printer ink was ordered and sent to our mail box.

Now you’re caught up.

The other day I drove into town to get the mail.  Two packages arrived. One was my business cards from Moo, the other was printer ink.

I tore in to the package from Moo right there in the van. The other I left sealed up and brought it home with the bills.

There it sat on the table while I started making muffins for my littles, when suddenly my 5 year old pipes up that the 2 year old is opening a package. Up to my elbows in flour (I’m a messy baker). I shouted above the food processor that it was okay, it was just printer ink, so they happily tore into the package while I added more ingredients.

Ohhh they’re little markers, shouts the 5 year old delightedly.

No, it’s printer ink for the printer, I say.

But they look like little crayons, she insists.

So, I wander over the table where they have the box open and I look over and she is holding a box of printer ink that looks like this:



Oh shoot, I say, trying to grab the certificate of authenticity from my paper crumpling toddler and shove the accessories back in the box. I’ve ruined a Christmas gift, but I am delighted! I can’t believe my husband actually bought them for me. A few weeks back I posted the link from Knitters Pride on Facebook with a little note for my husband about hoping Santa would bring them, but it was more of a covet than anything, I had no expectations.

When he came home I told him his gift had been ruined, and I was sorry. He had no idea what I was talking about, so I showed it to him and he found the receipt to find out who it was from.

Thank-you Evelyn! You made this knitter very happy.

  1. Simpson-Bowles would be a good place to start. If you were to tell me in late 2008-early 2009 that we were headed to absolute ruin, I would have been more in your camp. The underlying chassis on Apple products is, or at least it was, Unix. Unix has a proven track record in corporate data farms (including my firm), and security setups would be much cleaner than dealing with ActiveDirectory hooking into the Unix server farms. knock off oakleys radar range sunglasses
