To catch a thief

I stole a bunch of equipment from my dad while he was visiting last weekend. Granted, he called the maneuvers 'trades', but I ended up with an I-pod touch with docking station, a hand-held Sony video camera, an external hard drive, and a desk. He left with a stainless steel step garbage can, a cooler, and a dilapidated Dell laptop (with the dreaded and counterproductive Vista as the operating system because apparently Windows is determined to make consumers hold on to that crap even if they own a copy of XP and would prefer to install that).

I can't say my leap into 2009 technology hasn't been met without some resistance. I still find myself leaving endless paper sticky notes, but at least they're all centrally located on the iPod.

Always good to have a new porn creation machine.

What a guy--found a way to give you new very cool stuff and haul away the old stuff. You are lucky to have him.

I guess I have never read your blog without battling firewalls...I nearly peed my pants in fright when Burning down the House started playing at top level. :)

Brenda, Michelle, Flooz: I know, it was like Christmas in June - I'm SO fortunate to have him.

Laoch: welcome to my mastubatorium...

terri: good thing you weren't in the library. They frown on pee on the seats. ;)
