Sister in Texas has bought her own laptop at last! She was sharing her family's computers all this time and no one was happy to share their comps so we ended up talking on the phone most of the time.
Today morning when I called her, she asked me to come online and she showed me her new nails, and (a Leo that she is), also how she styles her hair, which she has cut much shorter.
We walked around our houses with our laptops (with the web cams on) in our hands, and realised our daughters have similar looking messy rooms. Boys rooms are neat! Watching my niece objecting to her room being given bad press that too LIVE was great ... I was safe because my kids were at school ;)
She made me see a painting I had made in school and she has it in her living room. It had been in her living room in India also, but she burst into tears after making a huge surprise out of it being on a wall in a house in a land she did not even know existed as a kid.
I showed her sunlight streaming into our bedrooms, it was night there, I saw the darkness in their porch ... and now - in the afternoon here, when she wakes up in the morning there, we will be back online. I want to see the morning sunlight in her kitchen.
Isn't technology wonderful!!!!!
