Getting on the plane yesterday, I notice a couple walking in with two babies, both exceedingly adorable. They sit a row behind me across the aisle, and I pause as I smile at the mother and the small infant that she carries. Whoa, total MILF
, I think to myself.
Halfway into the flight while I'm getting out my computer, she taps me on the shoulder, and I look behind me. The husband asks me, "Are you Walter?" Since I know a Chinese Walter from Miami, I say no, but inquire further as to why he thinks I'm my high school buddy/bandmate. I realize, from his explanation that I've just been lusting after the wife of the brother of an old high school friend. I make some minor small talk, and then awkwardly turn back to my laptop.
I've been offline for the past five or six days. Mom and Dad's internet connection is dialup through the local school system
, and because they're technologically inept, they've blocked access to the following:
- Any web-based e-mail site, including Gmail and Yahoo Mail.
- PPTP VPNs including one I can use for work and vpn.google.com.
- Secure Shell Protocol connections to my workplace.
So I've pretty much not read anything on LJ since before Thanksgiving. If you've announced something of particular interest--if you've decided, for example, that you're giving up on your husband/boyfriend/acting-career-playing-a-s
B and running off to Lake Tahoe with me, pending my decision--please let me know in reply to this post.
