I just got my "old" computer set up, finally - I was missing a keyboard, that was the hold-up there - and it's working, yay! But it's also totally freaking me out because the screen is so. fucking. gigantic. After a month of using laptops exclusively, it just seems wrong
. And also, I've forgotten where the keys are on a normal keyboard. (We are using laptops at work, too, have I said that?) "Home" and "End" and "Delete" and so forth are all in different places and so I am off-kilter.
(I also think that I am coming down with something, maybe. I kinda feel like crap.)
The WoW patch is downloading, and taking forever, really. I swear it went faster on the wireless. But the wireless computer has moved into its new home in the bedroom, where it is working fine. It should, really, but I'm still happy that everything is working as advertised.
My computer table at the moment is a little folding thing, and while I wouldn't quite go so far as to call it "rickety", it's not quite as steady as I would like. I have pushed it up against the wall so I won't be having nightmares about it falling over in the night. I definitely need to buy a computer desk soon. (Maybe I will use the gift card that an online friend so kindly sent - I won't name names but it was very appreciated, let me tell you!)
I don't think I can talk about the debates in the state of mind I'm in right now. On CNN they are showing McCain talking about "one of the greatest frauds in voter history" - ACORN? really?? I dunno, somehow I would put the hanging chad and all of that chaos in Florida higher, myself. I mean, the whole ACORN thing is highly embarrassing, yes, but - well, that's just McCain putting spin on it and I shouldn't pay attention, should I?
Former presidents Bush and Clinton were in Galveston
yesterday - they are doing the fundraising thing
again. Which is good, I think we need the publicity. We got pushed out of the news by the economic meltdown and I've only seen us hit the national news as sort of an afterthought since.
