Vlorbik's Diner

email still works when i can get to it. long bus rides are involved so it won’t always be quick.

the phones are down. the service just kept getting worse
and i left it to madeline to set us up some new accounts.
trying to keep the old numbers was a horrible mistake;
the old ones are out of service and the new ones
have *not* been activated after a great deal of
madeline’s time has been sucked up on the net.

all just part of a very tough week too ghastly
to discuss in this format. here’s some *good*
news: i’ve got a TA position at BigState U
for the winter quarter. rather a large pay-cut
from last quarter (when i was a lecturer not
a TA; 5 grand versus 3300)… but this time
i’ll go ahead and put some books in the office
and maybe even make some new contacts;
stuff like that. so reports of my never being
a math teacher ever again are exaggerated.

lamb for dinner. happy birthday, me.
yay madeline.

the net’s down again at madeline’s.
and the quarter’s almost over so
i won’t have this office at BigState
after tomorrow. don’t expect to
reach me by email.

it appears that one is simply not
*supposed* to have the net at home.
yesterday i saw a box in the drug store
for a hundred bucks that you can
browse the net with wherever
there’s a free wifi cloud. i think.
obviously if you need to set up
some *paying account*, the damn
thing’s useless. worth looking into
