A couple of weeks ago, I moved my computer downstairs into what was once Dad's bedroom; he's trying to resign himself to staying in California, and he said I could use the room for anything I wanted. After making sure he meant it, I set it up as an office for myself. Now that I've finally gotten my camera to talk to my computer, here's a picture of the new setup, for anyone who's interested:

I just noticed something. There are the fundamentalist Christians who are opposed to evolution in general and, often, science in particular; then there are the people who think that the modern world, with all its teghnology, gets in the way of spirituality, and that the only way to truly live spiritually is to give up technology and live in harmony with nature. I knew both of these perspectives existed, of course; it just never occurred to me before now how parallel they were. Why is the divide between spirituality and technology such a persistent idea? I don't understand why there needs to be a divide in the first place.

It's getting kind of strange how often I'm seen as younger than I am. Up until a few months ago, for instance, it used to be really hard for me to get oil delivered, because nobody there wanted to talk to me. They insisted on talking to my dad. Finding anything out from them - let alone trying to get them to show up at my house - was like pulling teeth. It's been a bit easier the last couple of times, I guess because they're getting used to dealing with me, but I'm still confused as to why it was an issue to begin with.

Okay, so maybe they're just used to dealing with my dad. But that isn't the only time it happens, by any means. Most recently, someone at the dump thought I was a teenager, there helping my parents out. I would have thought he was just used to seeing my dad, but my dad can't possibly know everybody at the dump, and even if they do know each other, he would have no way of associating me with my dad. I don't go to the dump with my dad; when he's home, he goes, and when he's not, I go.

According to Kylen, I do look fairly young; he says I could pass for 16. The funny thing about that is, I could pass for 16 when I was 13... which was nearly ten years ago.

It's a minor thing... but it confuses me. And sometimes it gets annoying to be treated like I'm younger.

I just saw someone on a forum talking about how England is facing a crisis because real British people aren't having enough children and the only people having lots of children are (gasp) immigrants and the immigrants are going to take over the country and England is doomed.

*headdesk*

There are so many things wrong with that post that I don't even see any point in responding.

Apparently I'm worse at figuring out accents than I thought. I talked to a woman on the phone the other day, and could tell she had a slight accent but couldn't tell what kind it was. I guessed Russian, or possibly Middle Eastern.

Then Kylen talked to her, and was easily able to figure it out. Apparently it was a French Canadian accent. x.x

Valentine's Day: love it or hate it?
Neither. It doesn't really matter to me one way or the other. I don't care about getting flowers or chocolates or whatever - what matters to me is the underlying relationship, and that's around all year. Besides, Kylen and I have never really celebrated Valentine's Day; our anniversary is two days after, and that's the more important of the two. (Even for that, we're likely to just hang around at home.)

I've been reading my old (pen and paper) journals, from when I was fourteen, and I'm starting to get fed up with my younger self.

I mean, really, younger self, I love you and everything, but... was it really necessary to keep a record of every mood swing?

Or relate everything in your life to your latest obsessions?

Would it have killed you to write about the outside world every once in a while? I'm kind of curious as to what I actually did from day to day back then, since my memory doesn't tend to work very well for that sort of thing, and you are not obliging me.

And really... "I don't feel like writing right now. I'm too busy hating the world"? I like to think that I was not an angsty teenager. Help me preserve my illusions here.

I am losing even more faith in the human race.

I thought the blog had to be fake, until I saw that the women had actually done an interview... Now I'm just confused, because I refuse to believe that blog is genuine.

Also, they're getting a book deal.

Something to ponder: Someday, people will not know why computers have no A or B drives.
