video chat

back in the 70's, when i was a wee lad, i remember watching sci-fi shows with video phones and that sort of thing. it didn't seem that far fetched, but it wasn't reality. tonight, for the first time, i chatted with hanna via web cam.

we've been trying to get it set up for a week now, and finally figured it out tonight. after a couple of missteps, it worked. it was fun, and not as futuristic as i had imagined it to be. it was simple and seemed pretty natural, except for all of the video distortions and antics that hanna was promoting from her end. she kept doing this one thing where her eyes would grow to 5 or 6 times their normal size...she looked like an anime character.

constantly, i feel like i'm being dragged into the 21st century.
