He's the second person in my family to think that's an improvement -- Mom, too, was all hyped up over the possibility of talking on the phone and seeing us; that was one of the main reasons Mom got a computer.
To be fair, it's not me the grandparents want to see, it's Mr F and Mr Bunches, who they see all-too-infrequently because Sweetie and I are not social people and don't often get together with family or friends.
One of the reasons that we don't often get together with family and friends is that when we do, they do things like install programs on our laptops, which then also cause bugs on our laptops, which then make me spend 2 hours on a Saturday morning fixing that problem, and then rebooting the computer, and then having to reload my entire iTunes library, which because of a prior glitch caused by Middle and The Boy clicking on pop-up ads, contains something like 3000 duplicate songs, 3000 duplicate songs that I had just finished deleting because I really don't need two copies of the song "SexyBack" by Justin Timberlake -- I don't even need one copy of that song-- only to find that now that I've finished deleting them and cleaning up my iTunes, my father-in-law helpfully made me do it all over again, only I won't have time to do that because I'm apparently going to be always talking on the phone and looking into the webcam.
Anyway, the point of all that is that "We're From Barcelona," by the group "I'm From Barcelona" is a pretty cool song:
Down... To Go... is me counting down every song on my iPod. Thrilling, isn't it? To read about times that we actually did go visit relatives, and learn other reasons why we don't do that so often, read So How Was Your Easter? and see how I got insulted by a waitress at an ill-advised brunch.
