We have been having problems with our internet connection since we moved into this apartment. The wireless randomly shuts down, and sometimes even plugging in the ethernet doesn’t do the trick. I don’t have much patience with it. This on top of the fact that I have only vague ideas about how the internet works. You’re lucky I even know what an ethernet is.
We finally had a technician come out today. Unfortunately Eric wasn’t here to oversee communications (and by that I mean he wasn’t here to keep me from looking like a complete imbecile). The poor technician kept trying to explain things and I kept responding inappropriately.
Technician: Oh, I see the problem. You’ve got a splitter here that’s~~~~~~~~~~~~~ (Why don’t we have a keystroke for white noise?)
Me: That’s great. Thanks for fixing it. Do you want to try these cookies I made?
Technician: No, I’m saying, can you please show me where the other~~~~~~~~~
Me: I can get you a glass of milk too.
It’s not my fault. My brain was made in the 80s, when computers were going through puberty, before they became all popular. It reminds me of one time when I was using a public computer in the BYU library. A guy came up to me and said, hey, I think I left something I need on the desk top, do you mind if I check for it? I said, sure, and immediately started clearing my notes and things off of the top of the desk so that he could find his pen or whatever he had lost. I felt like an idiot when he grabbed the mouse and found the file that he had left on the desktop.
Whatever. Computers are just a fad anyway.
Fortunately, food will never go out of style. This curry recipe will knock your socks off. Don’t worry, it’s not too hot, just very tasty. I am putting the original recipe but will warn that I increased the spices significantly. I like my food hot. So if you do too, heap your curry and chili powder.
