Hooray For Laptops

...says I. My new laptop arrived last week. So far, so good. *Knocks On Wood*
Now I can sit in the comfort of my living room or bed and do 7 things at once. I'm glad I finally have a computer at my disposal for traveling. I'm going away next week. The last time I was away, I had a heck of a time trying to find a computer terminal to check my email. Not only was it expensive, but inconvenient.

I have thought of a new way to amuse/annoy fellow airline passengers with this laptop. For example: I recently rediscovered the joy of utilizing the windows narrator. For those that don't know, this is the little program that reads Windows commands aloud. I've never laughed so hard at hearing, "FOREGROUND WINDOW" repeated by an angry sounding male voice 20 times in a row. Do you think if I use this function about 500 times I might free up a seat near me? I do like having that extra personal space ;)
