It turns out that not taking the new computer out of the box was a bad idea, as the gods saw fit to punish the cowardice thereby displayed by causing my old computer to crash in a spectacular and, without the outlay of a sum of money not currently in my bank account, irredeemable way.
That’s why I didn’t post yesterday.
But the new computer is all set up now, at least the basics, and my friend D.R. is coming over on Friday to help me get the data off the old one as well as to install software goodies on this one.
In other news, tonight I went to my first urban rebounding class at the gym. This consisted of getting on a little trampoline and jumping up and down in ways the novelty of which began to pale long before class was over. Nonetheless, I did derive a certain amount of glee from this attenuated return to one of childhood’s great pleasures.
Perhaps I’ll go to Central Park and climb trees this weekend.
