Sociability

It was fun having V over here. Thalia was pulling double Muse duty, and we listened to random music. V got to see R.E.M. in concert on their most recent (current?) political group tour in Florida. She brought ice cream (Hagen Daas, yum -- chocolate chocolate chip and Rocky Road) and we shared and had a great time.

I really need to socialize more often.

V got a Gmail invitation from me, thus giving her half again as much storage space (yeah, her laptop's only got 2 gigs!) and delighting her no end. Whee!

She's coming by tomorrow to configure her palmtop to sych up to her laptop (and, possibly, to some online stuff as well). I'm a good geek to have as a friend, evidently. I told her what files not to mess with, the best way to uninstall stuff, and gave her a handy shortcut to the Control Panel where she can find it easily.

We'll see if everything stays where put. Her laptop is funky and very oldschool. It doesn't have blinkenlights -- it has an LCD status screen that tells when it's plugged in, when it's talking to the disk, and everything like that. I may actually look to see if I can't find that model sometime tomorrow.
Gone away, gone ahead,
Echoes roll unanswered.
Empty, open, dusty, dead.
Why have all the Weyrfolk fled?

Where have dragons gone together
Leaving weyrs to wind and weather,
Setting herdbeasts free of tether;
Gone, our safeguards, gone, but whither?

Have they flown to some new weyr
Where cruel Threads some others fear?
Are they worlds away from here?
Why, oh why the empty weyr?
