New Laptop:

It's running so slow. I forgot how pampered I was w/Keun's computer. I've removed as many programs as I felt safe I could remove, but there are still a lot of programs running in the background. My modem connection is high, but web navigation is slow-I assume it's all the programs that I can see running in task manager. I'm not sure what I can get rid of...I'll probably just have to wait until I see Keun or Akash.
This is the most I've written in months.
I wanted to go to a poetry reading Tuesday night-Ed's suggestion-but Ed came home grumpy and didn't want to go anymore. I should have went without him. Even if the vast majority of poets sucked that could have still led to inspiration.

I wrote a poem the other night...or at least I tried to write a poem. There was a horrible band on stage at the
Elbow Room in Ypsilanti and I opted to write instead of listen.

Broken-eyed coffee girls
piss me off
In a room full of tea-drinking whores
a shot of jack in between my teeth
I resent feeling like the intellectual.

I know, it's not very good...and I think I've ripped off Charles Bukowski-I'll have to read through his stuff again to make sure.
At least I wrote something.
I should rewrite Outis Hickus...Kenny Baum's story. I half-assed it the first time.

Damn this keyboard's tiny.

Damn Dell. Lemme call my friend who has the same computer and see if he had to reformat his.

This computer should be a lot faster than the one Keun gave you. When I got my Dell, there wasn't TOO much junk on it.. I don't remember having to reformat.

Your computer has 512 megs of RAM and 1.6ghz proccessor.. no reason to not run like lightning.

I checked. Yusuf has the exact same configuration, and his runs lightning fast.

Come down to Detroit some time for a day or two. I'll give you a ten dollar bills to subsidize some gas. Then we can get this thing functioning right..

Whoa! You still exist! Are you still in the East Lansing area? If so, we really need to hang out. My phone number's still the same, I'm not sure if the number I have for you is current. If you don't still have my phone number, IM me or E-mail me at some point (PPoohBear122@aol.com). I don't like posting my phone number on LJ.
