So after adding up my life savings and selling my car....I headed off to the computer store to see what I could find. (I'm kidding, I didn't actually sell my car....though it might have helped!) And there were sooo many choices! Each one had some of the features you want....but none of them had everything.....unless, of course, you are willing to pay something equal to the cost of a new house overlooking the ocean! As it was, I settled for one that cost as much as a small condo within walking distance to the beach with no view! (And don't even talk to me about "buyer's remorse"....it's all over now...the box is open....there's no going back!!)
Anyway...that has been my weekend. First, staying up all night trying to revive the old laptop...then trying to revive myself after buying the new laptop! And I'll probably be up all night again...transfering data and moving into my *new home*!
See you tomorrow everybody....we should have a house warming party or something! LOLcomments??? (1 so far...) ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I get dragged deep into a conversation about how to pronounce certain numbers, how to say certain phrases, and in what order are the days of the week. In between all this, he keeps asking me if I will teach him and when do classes start! He tells me he's only been in America for 3 months.
Oy! So I'm torn between trying to politely get rid of this guy and/or thinking this would be an interesting opportunity to learn Spanish first hand. I end up telling him that he needs to let me shop, and he says he'll wait for me, if I need anything. And then I feel bad, because it seems that this guy really wants to learn....and we could have helped each other learn. But....because of the way society is today....I have to worry about sooo many other things.....he could have been an axe murderer for all I know. And he did ask some odd questions....like how much did my car cost, and where do I live. Sure, maybe those are just some of the only phrases he knows...but still.
So I slipped out of there without buying anything...and without him seeing me leave. And I felt odd about it. Wishing I could be more trusting and not have to worry about all those other things.
Oddly disconcerting.comments??? (2 so far...) ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Anyway....for those of you who can't come....don't worry, there will be uninterrupted blogging....since our room is going to have one of those fabulous DSL terminals...Yay! (Now I just need someone to come and help me set up a live web cam! *wink*) So stay tuned.....I'm sure there will be stories to tell!comments???

Anyway....where did I leave off yesterday? Oh...it was my "girl years" vs. "guy years" in relation to "dog years" theory. So here's the thing, first of all, everyone knows that girls mature faster than boys.....and that girls are generally smarter than boys (well, us girls know that! Its true!). But the problem is....girls also seem to age faster than boys (translate that to mean: women tend to look older than men of the same age)!! Oy! (therein lies the "dog years" theory) But then again, women seem to live longer than men. Hmmm. Well....I was drinking when we were discussing this theory....it doesn't seem to make as much sense now or seem as funny. I guess you had to have been there!
But Zelda understands what I'm talking about, she's figured out that work hours are 3 times longer than regular hours! (Zelda, I should have just had you write this post!)
Goodnight everyone....I'll try to post something more interesting tomorrow....really!comments??? (2 so far...) ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
