I’m hoping my connection lasts long enough to write this post! So, you know you are a full-blown nettie-addict when your internet connection is out on day two (or only works when it feels like it for a minute or two) and you either walk about dazed mumbling and grumbling, or are on the phone saying, “I DON’T CARE IF YOU SAY I HAVE A STRONG CONNECTION, MY INTERNET CONNECTION IS NOT WORKING – I NEED MY INTERNET–GIVE ME MY INTERNET – FIX IT FIX IT FIX IT! WHAT DO YOU MEAN I HAVE TO WAIT UNTIL TOMORROW FOR A TECHNICIAN–?? I’VE BEEN WITHOUT INTERNET FOR 24-HOURS! THIS IS DAY TWO….AUUUGGHHHHHH!” and then try begging and cajoling, “I have chocolate…lots of it…you want some chocolate don’t you? Or does your technician like beer? wine? how about my firstborn? ….pleasssse pleeeeaasseee…fix my net! pllleeeaaseee…I beg of you…”
So, in the hopes this post will go through, I want to thank y’all for stopping by – I was able to read a few of the comments before my “nettie” went dead again (oh heavy sigh, oh lamentable laments!) And, I will be back to visiting and posting as soon as we figure out this problem (“It’s your router ma’am” — No, no no, not my wireless router, I checked… “But ma’am, we are getting a strong signal…” I know, that’s what’s funny, but it’s not getting to my computer… “But ma’am, blah blah blah blah bladdity bluh blah…” ARGH!
Don’t forget to guess the jellybeans (Angie thinks of the most fun kinds of contests!) to win Deb Leblanc’s Water Witch.
Aren’t we creatures of the net now? Creatures that must be hooked up to Things? The only good part of this is I was able to work on the draft of my second novel without any distractions.
*sob* My nettie…my poor nettie – how I miss you!
Oh! I may have a connection now…we have a technician here for an unrelated matter and he fiddled with something…and…and – Do you think he’ll freak out if I run up to him and hug him and kiss him and … I guess I shouldn’t do that; I guess a simple Thank You will be enough.
Today I was going to post a photo my brother sent me – but I’ll do that tomorrow. There’s a “mystery” to it I can’t figure out and I’m hoping someone out there can tell me what it’s about.
