Worms and Viruses
I don't know why I think this is kind of funny.
I guess it's the way it's written, or that we have arranged everything so that it teeters on a square inch. Someone waxes the square inch and we can't function. Aha! Maybe that's why it's funny-ish to me -- I can't function so I think it's funny when nothing else can either. I don't know. It's probably only funny because it didn't happen. I was somewhere the other day -- oh, yeah, at E's meeting -- where someone said how amazing it was that next year is 2004 and what happened to Y2K. To me MM seems like a long, long time ago, and the Y2K stuff was interesting but hardly anyone really believed it, truly. I had a friend who went into hospital for an operation on the... oh, probably the second, I can't imagine it being the first. And I had a friend who flew on the first. People (me included) like to get all excited over things, but we don't actually want any trouble. That gets boring too fast. Here, where the power went out 6 or 7 or more times last winter, even that small thing made life stop for me, and I usually had to go to bed as I don't have much stamina and going out somewhere would've been worse. Plus, with a garage-door opener it seems easier just to wait it out, rather that spring the catch and open the door (easy even for me). I can always read with a flashlight if it is dark, but I hate not having the computer.
