behind in the technology

you know...watching all these commercials that are on for "christmas gifts" (in quotations because i can't believe how much everything cost yet they're being suggested as STOCKING stuffers...) but i'm feeling very behind in technology. some examples?

> i have a USB memory stick but my computer is too old for it to work
> my cell phone has a black and white screen with no features and doesn't even change it's own clock with daylight savings.
> i don't have an ipod
> if i had an ipod, i wouldn't be able to use my computer to download/upload music to it
> we have an answering machine
> my car doesn't have a cd player or satellite radio
> i upload my digital photos at my parents house
> my DAD sent me a youtube clip and i can't watch it because i don't have sound on my computer

and i've recently been given the task to research and buy a laptop and projector for the school because i "know the most about technology".

needless to say, i asked my mom.

in other news, i wrote a christmas play for my class. yes, i wrote it. i was a little skeptical of my play-writing abilities however i heard an inspiring childrens story this sunday at PPAC and thought...if that person's story can get read in a church...i can totally write something. ha. i read it to my class this morning without telling them that they were going to be performing it and i even got some laughs out of them. they were pretty pumped when they found out that they get to be in a play. i, on the other hand, have 2 weeks minus weekends to get them ready to perform it. good luck me.

YOU CAN DO IT!!! I know. You excel under pressure. And you can always phone me and we can chat for approximately 47 minutes, which I always think is lovely.

Hi there - good to have friends in "technology" places?

Good to see your post once again - there were a few "dry" days there.

Hope you're doing well and that the snow is gone.

Love, Aunt Laurie

way to go Rebecca! i wrote some dramas for a college drama group I was a part of and helped put them up - one of the funnest things I've done in my life. Now, adding kids in the mix... looking forward to hearing how it goes. :)
