roadster_guy and mrimp are off to Aaron’s parents’ beach house north of Port Huron. I started my on-call week today so unless their neighbors’ wireless is up and running for me to leech off of in the event I get paged, I’m stuck here by myself. I have to be within 15 minutes of a computer in order to respond to a priority ticket, so this really limits my activities. During the week it’s not so bad, but on the weekend it SUCKS! If the wireless is working I may trek up there, but I’m a bit paranoid about it since it’s over an hour away. And they’re not currently on good terms with the neighbors, so if the connection goes down we can’t exactly go ask them to fix it.

Despite my vow to not read any news, I’ve caught myself surfing CNN and the news feed on my pager without even thinking about it. I quickly switched it off and started singing the Smurf song to clear my head of meaningful thought. Currently I’m updating my music and movie favorites on LivePlasma, then checking out suggested artists on iTunes, but LivePlasma’s having a problem and all the favorites I’ve added so far are stacked on top of each other instead of being spread out on the map. My favorites from the last time I used it are still laid out correctly, so I sent them an email. Odd.

Crap, I reached my limit of saved favorites on LP, because it’s still in beta.

Ok, I’ve GOT to put some music on; it’s like a tomb in here…

I need to stick my head in the sand and stop reading the news for awhile. There’s only so much reality I can take before I start to despair of things ever getting better, so I’m just going to pretend none of it exists for now.
