For some reason this computer has been extraordinarily slow today, and I'm way behind on everything I intended to do with it. I think I'm going to give up in frustration and just let it go ahead and masturbate, or whatever the hell it's trying to do. It clearly doesn't want me around to witness it's depraved behavior. I'll go watch the much friendlier television.
Oh, I did want to mention that I heard a hawk calling for quite some time this afternoon. I caught only a couple of glimpses of it, but it was hanging around the neighborhood for quite a while. I have no idea what it was up to, either. Maybe it was communicating with my computer, telling it to be obnoxious all night.
