Drowning in Tech Overload

Our vonage phone line died. My wireless internet connection is gone. The laptop is getting slower each day. I've had to buy a skype phone number and skype credit so that I can keep living my dual life of US/UK. It was all in balance but when the techie stuff went pear shaped I kinda lost the plot (how's that for British speak?)

The Skype sounds really computer-ised. Plus, I can't figure out how to type to people instead of calling them. In fact, I accidentally called my friend Lori at her job. My call was broadcast across the office. She managed to get me into the writing function. When I hung up, I called her again on the office loudspeaker.

London Calling.

Am I getting old or is this stuff just confusing?
