4th day of November, 2010
I hope you all are well. This week has been quite a busy one. We are hard at work on the upcoming Midwinter Fling (9th of January is fast approaching!) as well as eagerly accepting submissions to the playwriting contest for STEAM Fest. If you would like to enter, you can see the previous entry here which includes all the details.
My brother and I have been corresponding via our communicators, but sadly the voltaic battery in mine is almost dead. For all your outstanding advancements in this time, you have no way for me to charge it and your alkaline batteries do not fit the device. It was recommended that I get a telephone to replace the communicator and, though I would not be able to speak with my brother, I suppose I should try to operate one of these cellular phones. It is quite different from the telephones of my time, but the principles are fascinating and I'm sure I will be able to pick it up in no time. I also have recently discovered my inability to drive automobiles. I am skilled enough at maneuvering my airship, but attempting to drive on "highways" is beyond me. I fear I gave my room mate quite a scare, but all is well, and from now on she shall be the driver.
I must bid you farewell for the night, for I am busy at the moment dismantling a cellular phone in order to better understand its components. I much hurry and piece it together again before my room mate returns.
