OMG! My Google Reader says 241!!!
I lugged my laptop thousands of miles so that I could email, post to my blog, and read your blog posts, only to arrive at my destination to find that the THE INTERNET CONNECTION AT THE HOTEL WAS DOWN. DOWN. ALL THE WAY DOWN. ALL WEEK LONG!!! ALL THROUGH THE ENTIRE HOTEL! It was even down in the business center where real business people who really need Internet connectivity should have it, except that real business people, of course, don’t need networks because they have one of these:
People of the Blogosphere, I don’t have a
CrackBerry BlackBerry because if I did I would be reading your posts while eating, grocery shopping, driving, attending church, and having sex pedicures. So . . . I limit myself to my laptop and a cable modem, but then this . . .
No, I did not travel to a third-world country. I was in flippin’ Maryland. Next to Washington D.C., where the Internet was practically invented (depending on whose story you believe). And I HAD NO INTERNET. It was unthinkable. It was horrible. And then I came home this afternoon. This very afternoon. And guess what? I had Internet. For about an hour. And then guess what? POOF! Gone! NO INTERNET!!!
Then it came back on. So I sent out two emails. Then it died. Then it came back on. Then I started writing this post. Then it died before I hit “Publish Post.” Then I unplugged the cable modem. But that didn’t work. And I did some other stuff that didn’t work. Then I called the cable company and while I was on hold it came back on. So I hung up before it was my turn. Then before I could hit “Publish Post” it died again. Then I unplugged the modem again. And again. And I did some other stuff. Now it is back on. For how long? Who knows? Maybe I’ll have to break down and get me one of them dang BlackBerry-type deals. Meanwhile, in between outages I will be catching up on my reading, commenting, and posting. Following are some of the posts that I had planned for this week:
