Inverted Soapbox heartily endorses…

…using your roommates’ two computers while they are away in India for two months.

While my laptop, the first non-newsroom-loan laptop I have ever owned, a hand-me-down from (I shit you not) my grandfather), is 90-97 percent responsible for the success of my existence in New York since arriving on a couch here last winter, it is suffering through a brutal and ugly stage of life support. I am near my predetermined savings goal for purchasing a new computer, but the (gentle) juggling of a left-behind Mac and Sony Vaio is helping bridge the gap betwitxt hence and thence.

And what a great opportunity to give a plug to Blog Mahal, Brittany and Nathan’s published accounts of their journeys through South Asia, where their first India-datelined post has just appeared. They also borrowed my phrase “Naan Scents” for the URL, which I totally call dibs on as the name for my hip Indian curry bistro that I will open once all the revenue opportunities have been siphoned out of journalism (See also Tim Donnelly’s Super Barcade, Señor Scoop’s Ice Cream Saloon, Nietzsche’s Pizza and, of course, Tim Donnelly Presents: Jonathan Cribbs‘ Cinema and Pancake House.
