Sprucing it up

Looking at other blogs makes me feel ashamed at how "low tech" this one is. I guess I will have to work on it. I need to put more pictures on as well. Another project: going through old diaries and putting them on here. With editing of course! I am sure people don't want to read about me drooling over all the 'cute guys' in the Montreal airport when I took off for my very first overseas trip in January 1975. It's fun to read old diaries. I've fallen off the wagon a bit that way but have bought two Christmasy diaries (cheapo ones from Michaels) so hope to have a hand written journal of my upcoming trip for my eyes only. (I don't tell you guys everything!!!) This trip is low key enough I should have the time to sit every day and write.

I also have to play around with my netbook and figure out why my blog comes up in very tiny font and I can't seem to get rid of it. Needless to say I cannot blog when that is happening. This is just something recent that has been happening. Any suggestions? The first part of the trip will be interesting as the bed and breakfast I am staying at only has wifi in the main house where I will be at breakfast. So guess I will type something up in word and take my netbook with me to brekky and plop it in. My friend in Germany does not have internet access so will be "offline" (Screech!) for 8 days. Yikes. Perhaps I can go to an internet cafe once but that is difficult when you know someone is waiting for you. Paris and London both have wifi - I wonder if Simon has fixed it so I can actually have a good connection in my bedroom or will I have to sit on the stairs again. Oh well for 25 pounds a night I am not going to complain!!!

Ah, the buzzer is going - time to go wash the dye out of my hair!!!!
