So my computer is dead.
So my computer is dead. How much of my data survived remains to be seen. This sucks beyond words. So much of me was in that computer. I wondered around the office yesterday, aimlessly, from meeting to meeting, getting absolutely nothing done. Today is the same. Well it's not like I lost a leg or anything, but perhaps an index finger....
I'm using Chris's new IMAC. You know, the cool one with the flat screen and all---but I have to say I still miss my little IBM notebook, with my shortcuts and links and half my brain in it. :-(
Well, anyway, I've been mildly disturbed all weekend, and perhaps that did it to the half of my brain known as my computer. The reason for that was both Linda and Valerie have bought and moved into new houses. I find this mildly disturbing. They are acting all grown up! I don't like this one bit.
Though I did something fun this weekend. Chris and I went for a 10 mile hike. Yes, friends, 10 miles. You didn't think I could do it, did you? Well you see, the key to it was that I was hiking in *my* element. In the city that is. We walked from our place all the way down to Cafe Claude for lunch (it was closed so we had Thai), then to a gallery in Union Square for an Odd Nerdrum show. The gallery was closed, we didn't have much luck that day, so the two of us were pressing our respective noses on the window like small children. Let me tell you it was worth it. The paintings were phenomenal. From there we walked all the way up to North Beach, then up the Vallejo steps, down to Polk street, to Holy Foods and home. That's a good ten-mile walk folks. Ten San Francisco up-and-down-hills miles no less. Impressed now?
