Green Lake is avoiding me

I was scheduled to walk around Green Lake on Friday and on Sunday. Both were cancelled due to illness (not mine or Teddy's) -- and they weren't even with people who know each other. Weird. I had the bus schedule, I'd picked out which one I was going to shoot for, I had money for the fare -- the whole bit. I'm sick of fighting with Teddy and the car seat when I'm alone. I don't mind when there is someone to ride in back with him (me or Roland).

I got my new toy (a laptop) on Friday. It is lovely. Next up is a video camera, so I can document my firstborn son's every trivial move. Actually, that's second; first is a wireless router for the desktop so I have internet access on the laptop without having to fiddle with switching cords other than the power cord. In the meantime, I've figured out enough of what I'm doing so I can write. And, I have now thoroughly realized that Mac's are Unix boxes now. I'm embarrassed to admit that I went looking for a compiler. I have not found one installed yet, nor have I really decided if I'm going to install one. But if I wanted to have my website do something other than supply text to read. . .
