I’m sooo rocking the last millennium here people. I’m (are you ready for it?) using dial-up! OH MAH GAWD it totally sucks. Slow connections and dropped connection being my main gripe. Slow loading pages whenever I go to a new site- luckily for me I’m a creature of habit and that hasn’t happened too often. I’m waiting for my new wireless broadband modem (my last one bit the dust) to arrive from BT. Until then I’ll be here, rocking to blink-182 and watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
We are both sooo happy that Dada is back from his trip.
