Almost There

Closer and closer to the end...

In comparison to the rest of the week, today was slow. Nothing specific planned, really, and nothing harrowing or wild.

Finally got Dad's computer to defrag, so it works much better after all the modifications. Tomorrow, I'm showing him how to install memory, so he can add some...boy, does he need it. Speaking of the computer, I fully admit that I cannot beat Dad at 'Collapse'... hell, I can't even get close. But I do rule the roost at 'Text Twist' (yeah, slow goings here, I know).

Terrie, who is my, let's see here...step-sister-in-law, came by with a present for me. They decided that I shouldn't come here and get nothing, and that was incredibly cool of them. It's justa box of metas and cheeses, etc, but it was the idea that rocked... besides, that's airplane snacks, baby!

Ended up going out to dinner, which was great. Dad said something that floored me. Later, while I was defragging hs harddrive, I was talking to him about someone he knew who was one of those types that thinks he knows something about computers, but doesn't, Dad pops out with 'he couldn't tell a Gig from a frag'. Keep in mind Dad openly admits he doesn't know much about computers...man, I fell apart laughing. I dunno, maybe you had to be there.

Over the course of the last two days, I've managed to show Dad all four 'Alien' films, which blows my mind, since he's not normally a big sci-fi fan, but he really liked them.

Anyway, I'm off to get some sleep. I'll be taking off from O'Hare at 2:40 local time,and landing back in Portland around 5-ish local time. Ah, home home home. It has been a good week, very good to see Dad and meet the stepfamily, but it will also be great to be back home, and see my love again, and be in my own bed, and use my own computer.

G'night all!
