happy new year and updates

For those who follow the personal side of this blog, here are some updates.

  • I'm writing this on my new netbook! It's this one, a Lenovo IdeaPad S10, in black. I don't know if another used ThinkPad would have been a better buy, but I really need something small and light, and I'll just have to see how long it lasts. The screen is excellent and the keyboard is almost full size (about 80%). My typing is a little clumsy right now but I'm sure I'll adjust in no time.

  • We bought a six-year-old dryer from a friend. It works great, and I feel a whole lot better about all the energy I'm not using.

  • I stopped looking for new gloves, and resigned myself to wearing old ones that I don't like. Then, in the supermarket, out of the corner of my eye, I saw some cheap imitations of the ones I loved and lost. Only $9.00! I snapped them up, and am happy. I also made a note to myself to order the real thing from L.L. Bean before next winter, when there's still a selection.

    Those are all the updates I can think of, at least until I get my grades.

    Happy New Year, friends of wmtc! Thanks for being here. I don't know what I'd do without you all. I wish us all peace of mind, good health and strong community for 2010.

    This time next year, may all the US war resisters be living safely in Canada.

    Ditto to you as I post this from a friend's party. =D

    You might want to go back and snap up a couple of spare pairs, just in case. :)

    In the words of the Borg, "resistance is futile," but I'll continue to oppose the war, nevertheless. Being too tired to run and too old to start over, I'll take my chances and stay here in the States (should have moved to B.C. 30 years ago).

    Best wishes for the New Year, L-girl, and for many better tomorrows.

    Thanks, all.

    Resistance is everything.
