And I’m off

20 April 2007

Heading back up to Sligo again this evening. The reason being, I’ve gotta collect my new laptop. A Dell Inspiron 6400.

But before I go, some good news. I don’t have “the consumption”
I know, I know, you’re all thinking well yes. That is good news, but not particularly newsworthy, only it is. On accounts in individuals in the college having it and us all being tested. My Mantoux test was negative, but so far either 9 or 11[1] people will require a follow up test. Course most of this is probably[2] due to a false positive because of their BCG vaccinations, but you never know. But who cares about them! I’m the only person that matters ;) Course we will all have to be tested again, as the second confirmed test is so recent that we might be infected but it might not show up. So in another three months I’ll be stuck with another needle. Oh joy of joys.

    I'm disappointed. I was looking forward to keeping a vigil by your deathbed, lit only by an oil-lamp as you slipped away, coughing gently into a lace handkerchief.

    Oh well.

    Congratulations! Now get off the couch!!!!

    Congratulations on the notebook…it looks like a beauty! I have a similar notebook except it's Compaq and it's just a core duo processor and it's an XP pro. Otherwise, you would swear they were twins!!!!

    Sorry to disappoint H :)

    It is very shiny isn't it Sally? Plus widescreen so everything looks great compared to the old one. I just need to come up with a name now.

    You could call it Frank. In memento mori.

    Errr, a computer called Frank. Nope. Not working.
