Going to get so much faster...
Yep, isn't that what we all want? To get there faster, to reach out and touch someone, faster? I know, one prepares the fields, plants the seeds and then immediately harvests - at least on FarmVille, you can even get Turbo machinery and do it in one click! Sigh, I am ready to get out the door and gently jog, in the beautiful NorthWest weather and I am not going faster... just hoping to last for the duration of the jog.
I own a Kindle, and have lots of books on it (free - I haven't changed that much and I am on a FIXED income with wild spending sprees) but I have started George R. R. Martin's Game of Thrones - again. I have to read all four of the series before I go out and get a copy of A Dance with Dragons: A Song of Ice and Fire: Book Five, his latest. I am still betting that he will die before the series is finished, not that I wish him anything except the best - but Robert Jordan and others left epic works undone, they should have written faster? Amazon.com reminded me I had requested that title long ago, and if I wanted it to submit the cart... so I did, before the 1 percent National sales tax goes into effect.
Kind of like my idea to improve Washington, DC and the national government - let's raise the debt ceiling to 15 Trillion-trillion real dollars and pretend that someday we will be able to pay that off - as soon as we have those mineral rights from Avatar. That ought to bring down the United States of America - fast enough. I have heard that speed kills.
