- A new laptop, probably. This one is still going, but it’s lulling me into a false sense of security. Laptops die on me every 18 months/2 years, without fail, and I do not believe this one (over two years) when it tells me it’s fine. “It’s just a cough. That’s not blood. I’m fine.”
- A pair of Merrells that lasts longer than a couple of years would be nice, these days, too.
- Since my Virgin Mingle personal wifi hotspot device for the US died, I need a new wifi device. But the ones that claim to work in Europe and America all seem to be 3G only. So I need a little 4G wifi magic device that works in the UK, US and continental Europe, because I am beginning the Road Life again.
- Also I want to cancel everything in March and stay in bed forever, which doesn’t explain why I’ve booked a private conference in a remote part of Norway and a talk described as “a sermon” in Amsterdam, both for September, when I will doubtless complain that I just wanna lay in bed again.
Also here is a photo of some books that my NORMAL publisher, FSG, sent me last week.
