Wireless Luddite

Thought you guys might like to know that these really fabulous looking chile rellenos are available this week only at Taqueria del Sol.  Thanks Omnivore for the hot tip.  Being a huge fan of anything stuffed with cheese and then deep-fried, I will be checking them out tonight and report back.

Sorry for the lack of posts lately, but all the energy was sucked out of me when the computer company I ordered my new laptop from decided to turn the last month of my life into an eternal hell.  I am generally a somewhat-patient-person (feel free to scoff right now, I can’t see you anyway), except for when I get transferred to a call-center in India, and before I get transferred to that call-center I am forced to tell an automated voice response system my problem.  I’m not sure which is worse, screaming at a robot that I think my problem has to do with the fact that I am fairly certain it has a vagina for a brain, or screaming it at poor Parshan. 

All is finally right again with the world and after many irate surveys filled out in capitalized letters, I even got some cool new technological gadgets that I will probably never use properly or read the manuals to- For instance, I now have a wireless router, but two beers later and  I still couldn’t get it to work.  Oh, and I have wireless Bluetooth stereo headphones.  Except, get this: I have no idea what the hell Bluetooth is or does.  My brother is probably getting ready to kill me at this very moment for confessing that to you, but it’s true.  I know I could look it up, but everywhere I turn it’s Bluetooth this and Bluetooth that and it kind of just makes me really miss my Walkman and that time this DJ who was our next door neighbor gave Brother J and I 50 CDs and we had no idea what they were and superglued them all together and threw them around our room like frisbees.  We seriously regretted our decision about a year later when we got a CD player for Christmas so don’t get me wrong, I am not fully ready to embrace my ludditeness.  In fact, I still fondly remember the day I realized that accidentally pressing the “insert” button on my computer was responsible for all of my subsequent letters getting eaten.  You have no idea how many hours of my life that one discovery gave me back. 

I ‘m not sure what brought on all these thoughts, except for the increasing amount of loved ones who are angry with me for my less than acceptable number of phone calls placed to them on a weekly basis and it has been really making me yearn for the days when cell-phones  didn’t exist and I didn’t feel like tearing my hair out just because Gmail was down for an hour today.  An hour! And just because I don’t call you doesn’t mean I don’t love you! The deprivation of your company is just as hard for me as it is for you.  However, I am a firm believer in the saying that Absence Makes the Heart Grow Fonder and I would really like to feel slightly more fond of some you, that’s all.
