It’s been a while since I’ve written from my favorite little coffee shop. It’s not like I don’t come here often, I do. And it’s not like I don’t have my iBook with me almost always, again, I do (and my camera, a handy-dandy reporter’s notebook, voice recorder, battery chargers, cables, card reader, etc., etc., etc.). And although it’s certainly not necessary to be connected to the web to write these musings, for customers at this establishment, wireless Internet is provided free of charge.
It’s just that when I’m here, it’s for a limited period of time. That’s not to say it’s about killing time – I will often plan for time to be here – but when I’m here, I am constantly running into friends. It keeps me busy. In fact, I used to bring the iBook in with me all the time, however, it came to the point where I’d open it, check my mail while talking, give up and close it up. Tonight, I have the luxury of killing a substantial amount of time. Although my pecking at the keys has been slowed considerably by numerous happy interruptions, there is time to complete a sentence here and then.
But it’s taking some time. I stop and talk, type and talk… I've got a lot of balls in the air. In addition to this Word widow I have open, I have three Firefox windows and an email window open. I’m tracking the Saints and Eagles, keeping an eye on my blog’s hit counter and… I guess I’m in my element. There is one issue that’s going to stop me for sure: I only have 20 minutes of battery life left and I don't feel like plugging in.
Time to post ~
