I am technology's bitch
Although, using the word "bitch" to describe myself has a different connotation than it did in a former life. Let me re-iterate that I've been nothing but sweet and gregarious for the past week. Misha and Telly don't really get me being so excited about a job aside from the money being good, especially with the hours potentially being longer, the office being a pain in the neck to get to, and the work being harder. It's tough to explain to folks who haven't done this kind of work how exciting the challenge can be. It feels good to be working with my mind again; I even got a Mensa puzzle-a-day calendar to warm my brain up at the start of the day.

Got my laptop the other day, too. Typing on it right now. It took some doing, of course - I had to get a new wireless hub, then getting a wireless card for Gertie's machine, since we were both getting sick of wires leading from my bedroom to hers, taped to the ceiling, and sometimes drooping down and being a pain in the neck. Of course, Gertie decided this was my job despite my protests that I'm really not that good at the whole network thing. And, of course, she's got a Mac, the computer I inherited from Michelle is running Windows 95, the laptop's running XP Pro... Ugh.

Finally got that done last night, but when trying to set the Replay up tonight, I found it was nearly full, so I've been watching TV all night. It's minor-league annoying; the idea of one those things is to make it easier to watch things on one's own schedule, right?

Ah well. At least Misha's physical came back looking good.
