As opposed to yesterday’s «disgruntled post», I’ve entitled this ‘pleased’ because I’m not a whiner. Not that the problem has been resolved, but I’m sure it will be soon. As I was standing in the kitchen now, waiting for the first mug of coffee, I was thinking about the first humans … when they lived in caves, and stuff like that! They didn’t have shampoo or any hygienic products! Ewww … no hair brushes or combs either! Imagine the tangled hair 🙂! Now, this was a bit jokingly, but still, I’m so glad and thankful to have been born in the time and place I was. When I was forty five, the Internet came around for real … to common people. The fact that I was that old, made me so much more appreciative of it than I would have been if I’d been born right into it. If I feel like it, I can spend all day online … it won’t cause my phone bill to sky-rocket, like it did in the beginning.
Sometimes websites aren’t all that intuitively built, so it takes a few extra clicks to do this or that. This never fails to irk me — that they haven’t thought it through properly. Those times I have to remind myself about that it wasn’t all that long ago I had to take an elevator down to the basement, walk long corridors to the archive, just to get some files.
So, all those things went through my mind, while I was waiting for that first cup. Thoughts don’t take very long time, in fact, in a split second you have time to think a lot. Good thing that all those synapses in the brain are working. Anyway, then I sat down here and checked out my WordPress Reader, to see what new had come up overnight. As I read Joss’ post — even though it was on a more serious note — it struck me that we were, basically, thinking about the exact same thing; ‘change’. How change is a part of our lives we can be really sure of, and how thankful we are to be part of it all … here and now.
