a meditation on the occasion of a birthday

Another year in my life past, another about to start. Usually I tell people that I don't notice any difference between the age I was and the age I now am, but I don't think that's true this year. It is true that I feel pretty much the same as I did yesterday, but if I look back further, to a year ago today, my position is significantly changed.

So, I was going to write this thing about where I was then, where I am now, etc., but upon having been awake longer, have now changed my mind.

Er.



Anyway, I've discovered that I can, in fact, get a steady wireless connection in my room. (The capriciousness of our family's wireless by the time it reaches my room has been the bane of my existence for the past few months.) I just have to put my laptop on the floor and leave it there. This is probably bad for my wrists (or back or something) but is definitely better for my batteries, so. *shrugs*

Tell me, O El-Jay, on this my birthday, what is the weirdest/most uncomfortable position you've put yourself into for the sake of a decent internet connection?


ETA: I am amused by Semagic's refusal to recognize "internet" as a real word, and by its proposal to substitute "internee". Not the same thing, Semagic. Not even remotely the same thing.
