5 August 2002 (Monday): minor discoveries


There is hope yet. My bar stool is the wrong height for this desk, which means I get a backache after hunching over my laptop for more than fifteen minutes. I can take the laptop elsewhere, of course, but then I lose the internet connection. Serendipitous, yes indeed.

City living is messing with my head. I went for a walk/run to the top of the hill behind my apartment this morning, and there is something a tad surreal about a strenuous two-mile hike that ends in a panoramic view of...buildings.

Also, incontrovertible evidence that I am actually dating my father: in the space of twenty-four hours this past weekend, both Dad and Soren said, "It's like Rushmore. Have you seen it? Oh, that's a great movie." There you go, ladies and gentlemen. Rock solid proof.

hehehe. let's see:

1) get computer that doesn't read half of your existing files

2) make home computing environment extremely uncomfortable

3) ...?

what's next? here are some suggestions:

3) routinely spill orange juice on computer

4) talk dirty to computer

whoa, wait! how about you give me your TiBook and i'll give you some really slow machine that acts *as though* it had orange juice in it?

there are always alternatives to violence against TiBooks.
