I love my grandpa <3 He's a bit of a gadget geek. Up to now he's focused on cameras and phones, but today he got his first computer. He saw Dad's iMac in my room when he visited during our last family reunion, grew envious, and decided to get one of his own.

My brother took care of buying a 20-inch iMac (gorgeoussss) and setting it up. Right now, grandpa's reading Chinese news on it. HE CAN READ NEWS WITHOUT HUNCHING OVER A NEWSPAPER WITH A MAGNIFYING GLASS GUYS THIS ROCKS.

Okay, so he might have turned his computer into the world's most expensive magnifying glass *laugh* But he rocks and is pretty cool at it. There are a few other things I know he's interested in, and I might be able to show him them once he gets used enough to using a computer to do something other than reading.

PS. Guys, translating geek to English for my parents is hard enough; geek to Chinese for my grandpa is so much harder!

PPS. Would just like to tell you guys that [info] - personalrb is sweet and gorgeous, and that she linked me to her series of simple accessibility hints on ATMac and it is amazing!

So Saturday was a bust. I was hoping to make up for it today, but spotty Internet at my grandpa's place and when I got home (DAMN YOU RAIN *helpless fistshake*) spoiled that plan, too.

I guess watching Pretty Woman and Milk was an accomplishment? Ughh I want my weekend back. Two days of enforced nonproductivity is two days too much!

ETA. OMG. Ten minutes after I post this, and five minutes before my self-imposed midnight curfew, the internet comes back up. Stop taunting me like this! Aggggh!

I shall go pull my net-addicted body away right now, I think. But agggh, that was a cruel trick to play, DSL.
