Attack of the nerds

I knew I would not make it through the week without Internet access and that the reserve-in-advance free access at the library would not cut it because they have a cracked-out system that resets itself to the home page if you don't wiggle the mouse every few minutes, so that you can be typing a blog-post about Persuasion, for example, when all of a sudden you find yourself at the library home page.

Needless to say, that will not do. (And yet I said it, even thought it was needless!) So I was forced to go to Echapp, also known as Chez Nerd. I walked in and the place was packed. I took a look around and asked if there were any free computers. The guy said no and suggested that I try again in half an hour. As I turned around to leave, I heard a voice suggest "Vous voulez pas un petit café en attendant?" I went out the door and one guy who works there leaned out and repeated the offer, which I politely declined, mumbling that I had to go home or something, because I don't like coffee, I didn't want to be surrounded by nerds, and I wasn't sure of the implications of his offer. I'm not sure if he was suggesting it because I was a girl or because I was a potential customer...
