Laptop Down

June 26, 2009

Well guys, I'm down one laptop--at least until the end of this week. The situation has left me typing this message on a six-year-old desktop, which happens to be half the size of Mississippi. I would also like to note that I'm sitting in the supply closet.

According to my very scientific calculations, I'm half a step above a homeless pirate sending handwritten messages in an empty rum bottle.

At least this computer monitor outweighs me. Not many things do these days, so it's going a really long way in the self esteem department. I'm actually thinking about dumping this thing in a grocery cart, pushing it around town, and stopping random strangers to ask questions like, "Excuse me, ma'am? Does this monitor make me look skinny?" or "Do you think a laptop would make my bum look fat?"

That's my long way of saying that I might not be on much this week.

And please, if I never write again, be sure to watch Wipeout tonight. It will change your life for the better. I promise.

LOL (ahem) Sorry I didn't mean to laugh at you being tortured by such cruel methods. I look forward to more posting when you no longer have to post from a computer that was founded in the Ice Age.

I love old school computers. Does your's have a floppy disk drive so you can play Oregon Trail?

Thanks for the reminder about Wipeout! I've been pretty grumpy about all the rain we've been having lately, so I could use a good laugh. :)

The thought of you sitting in a supply closet, typing on a computer half the size of Mississippi just cracks me up!
Wipeout, on the other hand, makes me cringe. I always worry about those people getting hurt. Boy am I a wuss!

So guess where the military is sending me on my first temporary duty? Mother effin MAINE! It's a strange connection we have. I seem to inadvertantly follow you wherever you go. Anyway, are you close to any military installations? I need to see where exactly we're going but I had to let my 1st cyber friend know :) Also, here's my new blog.
