Guess where I'm sitting... I'm on my pretty little new red chair, typing on my wireless enabled laptop. Yes, I'm a freakin superstar.
Well, me and the internet, with a little bit of help from J (although mostly me... and the internet).
Because I was up really late last night (with all that late night internet action), I overslept a little bit this morning, so decided against going on my walk and instead sat around fiddling with my laptop. I was very happy, because what would normally have taken about three and a half hours only took me about an hour. And everything was so damn quick. And who knew there was video on the internet and I could actually see it. In short... woohoo!
Anyway, when I got to work I checked online to see if I could see a solution to the whole lack of wireless connection problem. I found something that sounded about right, but wasn't exactly sure how the hell to make it all happen.
So I asked J to swing by after work and see if he could help me set things right. But he was delayed, so I did some fiddling around myself (which sounds really, really dodgy when I say it like that) and actually managed to get it to connect. So I was going to move the computer into the lounge, and accidentally told it to install all the Windows Updates...
Now installing 1 of 41 updates...
Goddamit! Fortunately it was pretty much finished by the time J got here, and I'd set everything up all secure and stuff, so I was pretty damn pleased with myself.
So here I am, watching Margaret Cho in the lounge, typing a blog post and hanging out with J... I'm so 21st Century... and it's nice that I finally joined the rest of the world.
PS: Given all the weirdness going on in Sydney and Brisbane right now, I hope all my blogboys out there are okay!
