Love/Hate Free Internet

I'm very glad Sunnyvale has free internet through Metro Fi. What I hate is that at the top of every page is an advertisement that messes with the HTML of all pages. I've been trying to access that required Alcohol Edu class that I have to finish by the 30th, and because I've got that stupid bar of advertisements at the top of my page, I cannot click the next button. Hopefully the Sunnyvale library has a different internet connection so I can complete it in one session there. But then again, I don't think there's audio on those computers. What are the consequences if I don't complete the course until school? I wonder if my hotel room has free WiFi.... and if it has those stupid HTML ads. As the title suggests, hate/love relationship. I love that it's free. Internet should be free. But those ads screw up a lot of pages that have specific coding. I'm gonna have to call the toll free number.

For other news, I'm just about done packing. I have one box left to seal, and thats the one with my totally awesome bookends. They're actually Pirates of the Caribbean aquarium decorations, but they've got a straight side that will be perfect for bookends once I attach weights to the bottom.

Oh, and my second cousin (we're much closer than that makes it sound) got married today. It was out in the redwoods of Los Gatos. It seems kinda weird to say that she's now Rachel Smith; I've just about grown up with her, as she's less than one year older than me. Well, I wish her luck when she moves to Seattle.

As I continue to update my new Ipod (I have inherited the family curse. I am quality control. any electronics I buy will fail under warranty within a week. It is a good idea to buy the extra warranty for me). Lots of song titles to type in. Seems like Vista doesn't let Gracenote import song titles. Well, it's entertaining, sometimes. I'm finding lots of songs I didn't know were on some cd's.

And for the knitting, I'm currently designing a scarf that is sort of like a business suit. sketches to follow.
