INTERENETO!

I have internet! I have internet! And it didn't take the full five weeks. I can now make real apostraphes instead of backwards ones. I can post pictures and talk to people via skype once I buy a mic. I can post, post, post away and actually do my job at work. (Or maybe not...) I just chatted with Brooke. I'm connected to the world again! I want to thank the nice English-speaking ladies at Fad-Tech, the NTT guy who was so concerned that I understood how my line worked, and most of all--- whoever invented internet in the first place (Al Gore?).

Here is one of my two rooms---



Looking into my apartment from the entry way---



And for some reason, I can't get this to post vertically, so tilt your head and see the scene of the spider fight as well as the blue urinal. Fantastic!

Woohoo!!! Internet. Your apartment looks so cute! Send me an email whenever you get a chance.

YAY! Cute apartment... nice view!

But... is that Japanese technology or a urinal?

Rachel said...

Just a urinal. I haven't actually flushed it. It might make music or something crazy. Or be hooked up to your cell phone. Flush and it rings. That would be something else. I'll post another picture of my urinal soon. I need to add some pieces to my shrine. :)
