Just as I was looking forward to the internet finally arriving at my house (June 1, if the router/modem or whatever it's called arrives by then), I realized that my computer may not make it until June 1! It's got a mind of its own lately, possibly rebelling from the move? First of all, it won't turn off. When I select "shut down", it acts like it's going to shut down, then restarts itself. Now, it doesn't even wait for me to click shut down before restarting itself. Sometimes it likes to do it when I am in the middle of watching a movie or importing a CD to iTunes. Better still (if you measure the amount of "better" based on how irritated you get), it now takes 20 minutes to go through the process of restarting!
We have a plan in place and I shouldn't have to wait too much longer after June 1 for a functional computer.
I don't have a whole lot of other interesting news to report... my main friend is moving soon and then the minimal social life that I have now is sure to diminish even more. I was invited to 3 BBQs over the long weekend and all 3 of my take-alongs were huge hits (Crunchy Asian Salad, Strawberry Jell-o Pretzel Salad and ingredients for S'Mores). I ventured (as a passenger) almost to London to go to Ikea on Monday. And tonight, I'm going to the "best restaurant in East England"...or so I've been told. I'll be the judge...it better be good, because I'm ditching my usual Wednesday night friends and skipping 5 pound curry & a pint night (5 pounds is the cost, not the amount of food) to go to this restaurant.
Until next time...
