Things that are annoying me lately

When uninspired, lists and bullet points always come in handy. As does a nice old-fashioned rant about What Is Wrong With The World. I was walking down the street earlier this week when I heard a prospective freshman, visiting campus for orientation, on the phone with his parents. I know all this about him despite the fact that he was on the opposite side because he was shouting into his phone the whole time we were walking up the street. "YOU NEED TO COME GET MY SHIT," he shouted, "YOU SHOULD HAVE FIGURED THIS OUT LAST NIGHT. COME AND GET...

Upper- Middle-Class Twit of the Year

follow srah at http://twitter.comI signed up for Twitter almost a year ago. I was going to admit to you that it was because I have some sort of addiction to everything social networking/web 2.0-related, but instead I think I will claim that it's because I am trying to establish my online identity by becoming the DOMINANT SRAH OF THE INTERNET. If I early-adopt everything on the Internet, I am more likely to get the username "srah" before anyone else takes it. There. Now ignore what I said about addiction. What addiction? Anyway, everyone was hopping on the Twitter bandwagon and...

In which my neighbor makes an honest woman of me

Remember all that delicious Internet I was stealing? Well now, two and a half months later, it's all come to an end. It was working fine at the beginning of the week, but since about Wednesday, AAAAAAAAAAAAAAH! I can't hear myself think because half of my brain is trying to eavesdrop on the two girls speaking French across the room! Anyway, since about Wednesday I haven't been able to connect. I think my Internetful neighbor has moved away. How I'll miss him! So this weekend I'm off to the Cable Modem Store to buy a cable modem (I tried eBay...

"Message d'evacuation numéro un, message d'evacuation numéro un..."

Fire drill again! We lost the Internet last time we had one. I had hoped that it would come back after this one. My hopes were even encouraged by seeing Señor Tails in the CDI when we came inside. Perhaps he was reconfiguring things! Perhaps everything was finally fixed! Nope. "Do you know when we'll have Internet again?" I asked him, my eyes full of innocent wonder and nonchalance, as though it wasn't really important and I was just wondering. This is the way you have to approach these Technology Gurus, or whatever his job title is. You mustn't be...

His name means "tails" in Spanish

I tracked down the system administrator and asked if he knew when the Internet would work again. He didn't know. "Do you think it will be ready by Monday?" I asked. "No - it will be at least a week," he replied. I exited his office depressed and dejected. "Don't listen to him," said a prof standing outside the door, "he's a big liar." Now I'm confused. Yes? No? What the hell is going on? Stop playing with foreigners like that!...

You can run but you can't hide from the Internet Addict

When the power came back on Tuesday, the Internet didn't. And still hasn't. And so I am typing these blog-entries into Notepad. How long can it possibly take to get the Internet back up after a power outage? Did something blow up? Did they decide Internet was too high-tech and they're not going to put it back? WILL I EVER BE ABLE TO PUBLISH? And more importantly, where is our system administrator? I haven't seen him in two days. I think he is hiding from me, which is probably a good idea at this point....
