I'm sitting here typing this on my new Dell laptop. I've got everything it came with up and running, downloaded Firefox, and am now entering my Gmail and LJ into my bookmarks. that_guy_zach
has offered to help me opitimize this baby. I notice that the keyboard for this thing is wider than any of my desktops' keyboards. That'll take some getting used to.
I went to the doctor Thursday and got some drugs for this wretchedness I've been suffering. Things are improving markedly day by day. I drove over to Newport yesterday and had dinner with that_guy_zach
and Fräulein Führerin. Then I went out to Wilderstead to spend the night.
Every day you wake up in the woods is a good day. I felt wonderful this morning. Got a few chores done. "Sweetened the pot," as they say; meaning, emptied and freshened up the porta-potty, since stryck
might be coming to visit the holler in a couple of weeks. I finished grooming the grass around Fuji's cairn. Brought home an old lawnmower that I haven't started in three years.
I've got a mouse living in my shed out yonder that I swear lives on D-con. One of my upcoming projects is to completely empty the shed and clean it out, then put everything back, de-moused.
If I'm lucky, I'll have this new 'puter ready for full, independent usage by this weekend. I'm scheduled to fly out to Colorado on Saturday, climb Wheeler Peak on Sunday, drop in at Philmont Training Center on Monday, then fly home on Tuesday.
That's all for now.
