I Lurve Living In The Future

I'm sitting at my desk this morning when my phone chimes, announcing an incoming text message.  It's j_in_question, messaging me from GenCon.  He needs to verify the books I'd asked him to pick up for me, since there's roughly a 50% chance they'll never end up in the local stores.  I reply.  He answers he's in line to buy them now.

I may not have cybereyes yet, and I still have to use a mouse to control computers, but there's something truly and magnificently cool about the trivial ease with which we can communicate over vast distances in real time.

Yesterday remained crappy.  What should have been a five minute trip to verify the removal of a virus turned into an hour and a half fight with multiple system, followed by a complete Windows reinstall.  I ate lunch so late I didn't feel like eating again until after 9 PM, and by then, things got testy enough at home that Jane and I got into an argument that left her in tears.

In short, a bad day.

After I ate, things got worked out, and I got a decent night's sleep and I'm feeling pretty good this morning, though I'm still unhappy with a computer I'm trying to work on, but I'm determined to make the remainder of this week better than the first three days.
