Simple tasks, part 3

Lack of money and a great opportunity portion of email to friend:

Beginning June 1, Grand Rapids will be testing out roughly ten different companies which provide umbrella wifi service. Once the test is over, GR will pick a company and create a wifi umbrella over the whole city, and possibly some of the surrounding suburbs.

Forever, I've been dying to utilize wifi at one of the many wifi cafes we have here. Mr. F and I don't have anything new enough to use wifi ... other than my heavy iMac. I'm not lugging that thing around town.

So, we've been looking into getting a REALLY inexpensive reconditioned ibook we could share and take where ever the test hotspots light up. And when the whole city is a hotspot, we'll be ready and feeling quite happy.

Besides, I feel trapped at home, because of all the computer-oriented/internet-oriented tasks I need to fulfill for my mother. I could work on her stuff anywhere ... including right next to her. It's much easier to hang out at her place than try to bring her here. Remember the knee incident? Well, I'm supposed to start physical therapy for that knee this week.

So many reasons to get a laptop.

Yeah, right. Like we can afford it.

Eeeeehhhhhh. Blah.

frustration at every corner.

"The Light in the Piazza!!!"

Has the album been released? I've been waiting so long.

Have you seen the musical?

If so, did you love it? Find it not as intense as other Adam Guettel works? Or perhaps, for me, I expected far too much. Many for ask, "Not intense enough?"

Don't you just love A. Guettel?

Pure genius.

I don't know who you are, and must find out.
