Gadgets AND gear
Should any of you remain unconvinced about my dedication to this project, perhaps it will sway you to hear that I actually bought gadgets. You know I hate those, right? Except that I am right now writing to you from my laptop, and I feel all hip and au courant, now that I too have reason to be aware of free wireless. (By au courant, I mean, you know, for the late nineties.) I also bought a little digital voice recorder. I was intimidated at first, ‘cause it had buttons and multiple functions. But I read the manual, which helped a little, and then my baby sister started playing with it. I liked it much better when I had lots of recordings of the two of us giggling. So, gadgets. I will too write this book.
(Justin! All! I need gear, and god knows you have thoughts about gear. I got the laptop for Christmas, and no case. I need a case. Here are the constraints. The laptop is big, 17” screen. I am a brute and break things, especially electronics. I don’t have a car; the case has to be portable by bike. I already carry a backpack, so I don’t want something else hanging off me, to swing into lightposts as I ride by. It would be nice to carry something style-y, but that comes as a last concern. What should I get?)
