The golden boy drove Lightning Macqueen across the keyboard of my notebook (yes, that is what it is called! A laptop is something else, Irani-ha), and Macqueen broke the F8 key. So HP came and took my notebook away, (well, I asked them to, but this is what it feels like) and it won’t be back for 7 to 9 business days. Which mean a fortnight. No computer at home for a fortnight. No late night films, no favourite serials from the library after the kidz sleep (I’m thinking Moonlighting, Midsomer Murders and Dr. Quinn here. By the way- do you think Jane Seymour is more beautiful or Cybill Shepard? It is a question which has been occupying my mind recently, alomgside other concerns such the CRA, the golden boy going back to Iran, university starting in September, what is development studies and why I am studying it? etc etc) no plonking the kidz in front of the monitor to rewatch Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck for the thousandth time while you get on with more interesting things (such as cooking supper), no frequent e-mail checks, no chatting with sis, and, for all my fans out there (yes- I know you’re there, even if you are a bit shy about comments- I didn’t make the ~2000 viewer statistic by myself and my sister!) no daily newcomer updates.
I will miss being thenewcomer… I’ll try to update as much as possible… It’s very hot here in Halifax, and we are going to the beach tomorrow. And there is a public picnic on Sunday at the Citadel. Perhaps I’ll see you there.
