I Just Found my Big Red Toolbox

So, it's amazing what you can do with the right tools, right?
This weekend, I had such a good time hanging with my folks.  My dad showed me how to change my brakes (though it turned out we didn't really need to change them yet, thank you so much, Toyota Service Department).  He had a hydraulic floor jack, all kinds of wrenches, and a brass hammer.  Thanks, Dad!  I can't wait until I can try it on my own (with supervision, of course).

It struck me suddenly why guys like tools.  With the right tools, you're a champion.  With the right tools, Spiderman saved lives. With the right tools, you can walk down a dusty street, unharness your tools, and save the day without even breaking a sweat.  That's not to say a man doesn't need serious skills to maximize the potential of these tools . . . or even use them safely, but what fun!
I've experimented with different kinds of tools-- garlic presses, Cuisinart's range, fancy dusters, drills, saws, cars, brushes, irons, etc., but I've never been so excited about tools as I am right now about Adobe.  Adobe's Creative Suite really is the Idea Girl's wonderland.  I am an Auto Guy his first time to Sears.  I am a Quilting Granny her first day at JoAnn's.  I am Happy Camper in a giant REI.  I am a Gunman at a rifle emporium. 

I am in love.  Thank you, Adobe.  I am going to create wonderful, crazy, colorful things.

Uh. Huh. uuuuh.
