last word. most people prefer to be the last one to say goodbye on the telephone. why is that? i've been conducting a little experiement, and i almost never have the last word, even if they are the one that said 'see ya' first. i think more people should be comfortable hanging up. my great grandmother used to just hang up the phone when she was done speaking, without really giving any warning.

head in the clouds. since i've started reading. i mean, really reading. i've found a place with a window view that extends for fairly long distances. all the places have been at least 2 storeys up. there seems to be some natural connection between reading and having as a backdrop the slowly changing cloudscape. watching slowly the light grow and dim, the sky shift, crack, sharpen, blur, bleed, ooze, cry, freeze, twinkle, even sleep.

technology update. for all you bit-heads out there, check out the latest in RAID technology (thanks to elan). on an unrelated note, i spent many hours fiddling with my cd burner to get it to work. then burning multiple cds. concurrently, i spent about an hour and a half on the phone with ATT wireless support to fix my mobile AIM problem. i logged in the other day and now can't log out. still. i was on the phone so long my batter died and disconnected me. why do i even care? well, b/c if anyone tries to IM me, after all, it looks like i'm online, my phone will make a noise. it gets annoying. epsecially when you can't reply to whoever just IMed you.
