Free at Last

A few weeks ago, we discovered the wonderful world of WiFi and I haven't been the same since. Dial up was frustratingto begin with but, once I experienced the speed of wireless, it became unbearable. We have been planning to upgrade our technology for awhile because we take a lot of pictures and upload them for our families to see. It's possible that I may have been uploading my photos on my work computer and blogging at work but I can neither confirm or deny that. Plus, blogging with the whole dial-up thing has been a challenge and yesterday I couldn't log into Blogger with our stupid connection and had to take Luisa's laptop and go to our local cafe to use the wireless. Blogging at a cafe on Thanksgiving. Yep, that was me. How am I blogging right now, you may be wondering? Well, I am blogging on our new laptop with my new high speed DSL. It's not wireless but we will get there eventually.

Luisa left the house at 3:30 a.m. this morning and went to Best Buy. It was my Portuguese girlfriend and hundreds of American bargain seekers. I'm sure she had all sorts of cultural observations but I can't give you all the details because she is probably asleep on the couch by now. She stood in line for a long time but she got us a hell of a deal on this computer. It is so cool!

So, I no longer have dial-up. Now, I just need to use that iPod.
