I’ve been communicating with a lot of people over Skype lately. Moving to Florida’s biggest drawback was leaving so many people behind. But a new laptop (currently playing The Jerk) with a webcam makes friends in Indiana and Washington look and sound like they’re in the same room. Pretty nice. I got to see one friend’s tiny little baby for the first time, and another friend’s new dog, and all without having to hold a cell phone up to my ear. It’s tempting to think about pulling a Forgetting Sarah Marshall and put some theatrical backdrops behind me for extra drama. Wheeee, I’m calling you from spaaaaace….. You get the idea.
