Ever So Late to the Dance

I lit my first match at nineteen and just had my first internet chat yesterday at thirty-seven. What does that say about me? I wouldn't have taken the plunge on the latter, but a window popped up when I was in Gmail and I figured what the hell. The reason I was opposed to chatting before is that I like to archive everything. But Gmail archives your chats for you without having to do anything. I like that.

In other news, I read my paper off my laptop because I'd made changes since arriving and couldn't get the printer I'd brought along to work. Luckily, I'd brought a mouse along so I could just keep the cursor on the down arrow without touching the laptop itself. It wasn't my best presentation, but the panel was better than expected. Sometimes papers that don't seem to be closely connected work well together. That was the case.

I'm losing my virginity left and right these days. Last night I went to T.G.I. Friday's for the first time. I desperately needed protein and it was too late to search for a "real" restaurant. The steak I got was actually decent. And I got to watch two college basketball games on television and follow the Cal-Washington State game on my mobile phone. My finger got a cramp from pushing "Refresh" over and over. Luckily the Bears won -- 43-41! -- so I didn't run the risk of personal injury. The funny thing was I kept thinking that I'd read the score wrong and had to check over and over to make sure I hadn't.

I just realized that I'm using Live Journal the way that people use Live Journal! That's very exciting. Now when all of those people tell me that "real" blogs aren't on LJ, I'll be able to agree with them. And what's with the daily changes to the LJ home page? I'm getting tired of that parade of new features. There is such a thing as feature-creep, you know. Give me simplicity or give me death!
