Hello from sunny Florida

Ok, so it’s 1 in the morning- its not all that sunny right now. But whatever. I’m sitting here in my Grandmother’s sewing room, using my shitty NetZero free dial up connection. I never realized just how used to broadband I’d gotten. This is absolutely painful. Well at least the trip down here was pleasant enough. I just put my music on and zoned out while the ‘rents did the driving. Made it a lot less painful than the trip used to be, lemme tell ya.

Slept in a Hampton Inn in Florence, SC last night- that bed was more comfortable than my own bed. Further proof that I need to replace that POS bed I’ve got in my room as soon as possible.

I’m thinking I might need to sign up for NetZero’s platinum service for this month at least. I’ve only got 10 hours to use here, and I’ve already used like two of them.. and I’ve only been here one day. Probably worth it- then I’ll be able to use it in California when I go out to Anime expo. Well, we’ll see what happens.

On a semi-related note… during the trip down here I wasn’t able to check my e-mail for two whole days. Ouch- when I finally got connected, I found that I’d received MORE THAN 400 EMAILS. I’m still sifting through ’em. Also found out I had to configure my e-mail program to use Netzero’s SMTP server to send my e-mail… they must block access to any other server on port 25. Grumble grumble. Ah well. It’s a minor annoyance. I’ll get over it.

Paul, if you’re reading this- sign on AIM sometime soon. We need to discuss the final plans for the California trip.
