Dreaming of WiFi and chicken nuggets

I'm trying not to get my hopes up, but there is a good chance that by this time next week, I will own my very first laptop.


Yay for computer-genius uncles who know how to offer help when it comes to things like this.
Assuming it works, and assuming I can figure out how to use free WiFi at McDonald's, this will be the very first time I've ever had anything faster than dial-up.

Imagine, being able to watch videos without having to wait an hour (or more).
Lately I haven't been able to watch videos on dial-up at ALL; despite updating all my stuff, YouTube still keeps giving me error messages on every video.  Hopefully the laptop with WiFi will be a rainbow of glimmering light in my life, opening the doors to all sorts of videos involving cats and R.E.M. and bored college students experimenting with Mentos.
(Do they have videos involving all three at once?)

I hope it works out; I need some cheering up.
I'll keep you posted.

Maybe one of these days, in a week or so, I can post something from McDonald's.
If not, I can just post a long slow scream on dial-up.

(Slow dial-up screams probably come through sounding like whale sounds.)

Stay tuned.

I remember when I had dial-up. It took at least an hour to read anything. If I tried to download a new program (heaven forbid) it took all night, a night trying to stay awake so I could jiggle the mouse every hour or so and the computer wouldn't go into sleep mode. Finally we got high-speed in a bundle with our phone and Dish.
If you're at McD's, you should try the pumpkin pie. Yummy!

I think that was an REM song wasn't it? What happens when Coke-swigging cats eat mentos? Everybody Hurts.

Oh and welcome to the 21st century, Janna.

I hope you at least have a 56k dial up modem. :)
