Thought One: There are some movies I want to see.
Pink Panther with Steve Martin.
Firewall with Harrison Ford
Capote. (Thanks, Karen, I had just looked it up...but, you're my on-going research.)
Thought Two: This is the global information age and I, an early twentieth century nerd (not geek), am about to enter the twenty first century geekhood. I have signed up for DSL, and made the foolish choice of self-installation of high speed modem. What do I know about such geekness? Very little. I had expected to ask a friend of my grandson to do it. How is that for casual? The friend of a relative to lead me on this leap from one age to another.
I called and asked to have an installer from SBC to do the dirty work, but was told I could "save fifty dollars" by having the parts delivered and then call a technician. Well, we will see. Had I thought about my changing centuries, I would have ordered the professional from the get-go and paid an extra fifty.
What is the fare from one world to another?
