isn't that cool, tinkerbell!grrrl too and some others. in honor of your peeps, i vote for Pffffft.
godiverse, i hate technology. it freaking bites, dude. my laptop died and i was desperate and wanted to be able to return the new one, so i got a 17 freaking inch monster floor model at Radio Shack because i wanted to be able to return it without paying a restocking fes. too much experience with that crap/carp.
well, come to find that i have vast trouble typing on this thang. can't seem to adjust to the typing section being only a portion of the keyboard. and it turns out that i don't really care about the enhanced visuals and larger screen. who knew????? i'm usually a fast typist and i get a thrill out of that... i know, kvetch kvetch kvetch, when i'm blessed to be able to afford a new computer at all. i also got a toshiba netbook because it's so freaking cute, thinking that i would WRITE IN COFFEEHOUSES. turns out i don't do that because i keep vampire hours and most wireless cawfee places close earl in this godforsaken Too Hip for School not a city just a big town city of Portland, OR.
so, my current mission is to do a Michelin guide to local bars that do have wi-fi!!! i began last night with a venue that has Taco Tuesday. the worst tacos in the western world. not even tacos. and then i vomited all freaking night and now can't get the freaking stains out. godiverse really secretly loves me. he/it is just not effusive. that's my current theory anyway. he/it figures the inheritance that i seem to never ever receive and never will. that's it for a long long time. again, extremely gratefu for the moneyl. very very very grateful. but, shit, is a decent taco really that much to ask? and i seriously hate hate hate vomiting.
okay, on to what is important. well, aside from the Scrabble breakthrouh that i hope makes Tinkertot as happy as it made me:
