The Update February 23, 2009

Filed under: Uncategorized — anotherlens @ 11:20 pm

Once upon a time in a land far, far away there was this girl named Jessica who lived happily in Tagore International House, which was a dorm of plenty. It had beds, running water, and internet just as the girl dreamed. Then this cloud of fire and inefficiency came and incinerated the wifi and any hopes the girl had for air conditioning before the land experienced its yearly hell-season of 110 degrees. Furthermore, in her travels, the girl lost her magic memory capturer to an evil thief and could no longer illustrate her experiences to her adoring subjects. Without the magical wifi, the girl has to travel great distances to get to a computer, through dirt and sweat and sun.

 

Will the cloud of fire and ineffeciency ever leave this land? Will Jessica ever get a replacement magical memory capturer? Tune in next time, and we’ll see how the saga will end.

End narrative and switch to reality: The powers that be said one month two weeks ago. I’m betting that it’s longer. I’m aggravated, and skeptical and cynical at this moment, but… we’ll see. Keep coming back just in case a miracle happens and the wifi is installed sooner.

    You’re too cute.

    I’m glad you graced us with an update, and try to keep doing so until wifi comes back. Miss you!

    What a tale of true horrors! Even though it’s a very sad story, it was entertaining. I didn’t realize you didn’t have air conditioning, no wonder you sounded so tired the other day. I hope things pick up for you. Miss you!

    I’m so disappointed that the update I was happy to see was filled with unhappy news.
    Thanks for going to the lengths necessary to keep us informed.
