I have been here less than 24 hours and I already feel doubtful about the fate of this computer I put so much effort into procuring. This morning I opened opened it to find that a colony of tiny bugs had found it a rather hospitable environment. Panic ensued as I shook, squished and cursed these aspiring Mac inhabitants into hiding, at least for the time being. I think I have probably just forced them deeper into the workings of the machine. If the heat and humidity doesn’t kill this thing, the bugs will do their best to seal the deal. I probably should not have brought it! Already it seems that is true of most of my wardrobe also as the claims that the Vietnamese dress more formally than we do in Canada does not seem to be true at all, at least not in the heat of Hanoi summer. I am sweltering my long sleeve button-up shirts!

That sounds bad, you need one of those hand cranked 100 dollar laptops you read so much about on the web these days.

Sorry I didn't make it to the big send off, I was in bed with imaginary bugs of a kind crawling all over me from the quitting smoking. I hope the computer holds out , if worst comes to worst you'll have to update from a web cafe there somewhere when you can? That would suck DUDE!

oh oh flo... why would living beings choose such an inorganic host? PLAnti theorizes skin oils from fingertips, i think it's because they like your company. i might live there too if i fit. instead, you'll find me through your computer, rather than in it!

I'll have to start a blogger account, hm, online journal.

LOVE!
