My shiny little online spot to help y'all keep track of me while I galavant around London.

My very own computer

Why am I posting a picture of an old computer? Because it's mine, all mine! Yes, that's right folks, I finally -- for the first time ever -- own a computer.

Okay, that's a bit of a lie. Last year, Ben gave me a laptop (thanks Ben!). It was good for typing up schoolwork and checking the email (which I just said in my head in a Strong Bad voice) but not for much else... except -- given it's weight -- maybe as a murder weapon. ("Well, it appears to be blunt trauma of some sort...")

Anyway, my first ever (desktop, not laptop) computer is actually useful for things (especially now that Dan loaded it up, and fixed it, and by fixed it I mean he plugged things in correctly...which no, I couldn't do. Thanks Dan!).

Now, I can do all sorts of things, without trespassing into my flatmates' rooms to steal their comps. It even has a CD drive. Okay, I'm still far, far behind in the technological revolution (especially given this comp has 4GB hard space, while today I read about new cell phones with 8GB) but at least I'm in the game... and can look up porn 24/7!

I am actually very very excited by this (the comp, not the porn), and have spent much of my non-work hours over the past two days setting things up and playing around, with a big grin on my face. Like I said, the computer, not the porn...
