I have a computer now, it's a Dell server that Evan ordered and set up for me. I'm going to keep it at James' house, since I don't have a phone line, and I spend all my time there anyway.
Saturday was eight weeks since James and I met, he surprised me with some flowers first thing in the morning.

2. Who is the last person you talked to on the phone? Robin. A friend of my boyfriend.
3. About how many telephones do you have at home? I don't have a landline, just my cell phone.
4. Have you encountered anyone who has really bad phone manners? What happened? All the time. The most frequent example is people who carry on another conversation while calling the library. The phone rings, I pick it up, I say hello, and all I hear is this conversation at the other end. I say hello again, and there have been times that the person was so involved in their conversation, that they never hear me, so I hang up on them. They usually call back all pissed off, but I'm not going to sit there going, "Hello? Hello?" all day, while other people are waiting for me to help them. < rant > Oh, and also all the people who make and take calls on their cell phones in the library. Why is it that people talk so loudly while on a cell phone? It's not two tin cans on a string people, you can talk in a normal tone of voice and be heard just fine at the other end! < /rant >
5. Would you rather pick up the phone and call someone or write them an e-mail or a letter? Why or why not? It depends. Sometimes, if something is kind of long and complicated to get across, I prefer the phone, because I can say it quicker than typing it, and I can clarify things right there on the spot if the other person has any questions. Sometimes, I know that the person that I need to contact will ramble on and keep me on the phone too long, I will email instead.

Does it get any more petty and stupid than this?

How bored am I here at work today? I'm grabbing random bits of hair, holding the ends up to catch the light, and snipping off any visible split ends.

That's a phrase that I have read in various forms hundreds of times, and it never fails to irk me. I just read it in a book today, and it irritated me anew. To me, you nod your head for yes, and shake your head for no. To me shaking is more of a side to side motion. Do you agree? Or am I just nuts?

Update: Rocky was cancelled, yet again, and this time they didn't even bother to give a reason. Well, we'll try again at the end of the month... It's probably for the best, as James is sick, and was insisting on going anyway.
