Here I Am

Waiting for my ISP geeks to get my internet connexion working again...



See. You should always believe Renato.

P.S.: It was unstable until now. I lost two rather delicious idea-posts, so since it's late, I'll try to compose them later Thursday.

You know: not having connectivity SUCKS.

What did we do, before email and Google?? Hmm, hmm??

Do you believe people waited for weeks, to get a snail-mail reply in the post! It seems like ancient history.

Thank you, CIA, for making the internet possible. If it had been down to the KGB, we'd all still be buying beige envelopes. Ugh.

  • Victoria, you look great! Don't worry about those ISP geeks, you are always welcome to come and use my computer!

    By the way, yesterday I had to try the word verification thing a bunch of times before it finally accepted my comment!

  • Don't look now, but I think your seat cushion is happy to see you!

  • Gad! Stop doing that! Yeesh!

    *pant pant*

    Yes, we did wait for the mail to arrive, bringing a response. Or we telephoned. Mayhaps we climbed aboard our trusty steeds and cantered off to find the answers.

    Mayhaps!

    Verification: wwcekrot - now what sort of website is that?

  • I am glad to have you back, Vics.
    Now, in your other post -a true blood descendant of Lady Godiva, pun intended- you lead everybody into the labyrinths of the mind, very wisely.
    Many people don't have the nerve to step over the line that imaginarily separates them from a world which is truly allien to them. Why? I have always ask. I am one of those specimens who was bestowed by a right star alignment with the enterity to go anywhere and feel at home. Be it the most humble environment or the most rarified milieu. I feel that I belong in them. Anywhere.
    Your friend certainly was taught a good lesson: be yourself, enjoy the world. The only way something is above you, or out of your reach is because your lack of resolve puts it off limits.
    Sometimes it amuses me that I receive invitations for the most exclusive events, but I have never considered myself above or below them.
    In all and any cases, your actions changed -for ever, believe me- the life of your friend.
    She will be thinking of you whenever she dares to try an exotic meal, or whenever she takes an (till yesterday unexpected) new turn in life.
    As the Asian sage would have say, instead of feeding her fish you haneded her the net, the bait, the hook and the string.
    Why don't more people take this path to show fellow human beings that life is far from simple, and that every step is important in this apprenticeship period!
