Happy Happy Happy

Yesterday, elmofromok turned me on to Skype. For anyone who's interested, my skype ID is (surprise!) Junglemonkey. So, I download it and get pirateguillermo to download it, and send email to all of my family in Phoenix to download it.

Here's the part that rocks: my mother turned 64 yesterday. I talked to her and assured her that I would still need her and would still feed her, and she was very happy. So, my little old muffin-faced mother marched herself home from work, downloaded Skype and called me on it. We talked for 45 minutes last night. It was PHENOMENAL. I know little old people who treat their computers like the thing is going to jump off the desk and pummel them if they press the wrong button, but not my parents.

Hope for the Single

This article shows why none of you who are still single and looking should lose hope. No matter how esoteric or varied your tastes, there's someone out there for you, apparently. The trick is NOT to go out looking, but to sit back, relax and let them come to you.
