(I found a use for the ss10 that, having got me through university, has been sitting powered down in the bottom of a closet. Incidentally, beside it is the NeXTstation on which I first learned Unix, which I managed to pick up at a surplus sale the CS department held around 2000. Fear the blazing performance of TWO! sm51s.)

  1. Hey, this is Wench77 from over diaryland way. I saw Cyndi Lauper with Martha Wainwright tonight, and they were fuckin great… you should see them in Ottawa, I tell you. Cyndi is totally on the ball… intense incredible energy… the stuff from years past was fresh, and the material from the new album wowed the hyped Montreal audience so much they actually SHUT UP and stopped screaming for a song or two. I found you through googling them to put links to my diaryland entry tonight, which you can read at http://wench77.diaryland.com/cyndi.html I hope you decide to go, you won’t regret it, even if you are a real Bowie fan!! tah!
