After four-plus years of joyful song-streaming, Yahoo radio has cut me off. Why you gotta do me like that, Yahoo? That’s cold. Guess I’m going to switch to Pandora after all.
I am in love with my computer. It reeks of shiny newness and beauty. I am also a little bit scared of it, but that’s to be expected as I never get anything new, ever. This morning, I spent some time just staring at it lovingly. I didn’t even turn it on. And now I keep referring to it as one would a pet or a small human child. “Guess what the computer did today?” When I set it up, it took a picture of me. I didn’t know this was an option, so I was reasonably frightened when the first image I saw on shinynewthing was my own bewildered face. Despite this initial setback, I think we’re going to be best friends and I’m never going to leave the house ever again.
Cybil ate my earbuds yesterday. I can’t imagine why in hell she did this, other than to let me know she missed me (thanks a bunch, poodlejerk). But because I am a) addicted to music and b) McGyver, I hooked my old computer speakers up to my walkman CD player and set the whole thing about an inch from my bed, just so I could fall asleep listening to Queen. Don’t let the fancy computer fool you: I am still very much behind-the-times, although even I am aware how ridiculous this new development is.
