.Please Stand By

I usually don't go nearly a week without an entry, but I'm experiencing technical difficulties.

To wit:  my cable modem is down.  Has been -- on and off -- since Thursday.  Actually, at a particularly frustrating time, it conked down about halfway through something I was posting.  (Conveniently, I was writing it in MSWord, so I didn't lose it.  Let this lesson be a gentle reminder -- if there's any doubt with your connection, compose in a word processor.)

ANYWAY, the cable modem people gave me the first available appointment -- which is THURSDAY.  Sigh.  Indeed, the only reason why I'm able to post right now is because I have a wireless card and some of my neighbors don't have secured networks.  Thank you, kind neighbor, whoever you are. 

Still, while I don't feel real real guilty about riding off a neighbor's connection for ten minutes after midnight just to tell everyone that I'm alive, I do feel like I shouldn't take advantage of the guy and use the connection for all the updating I need to do.  I'm just nice that way.

So, I've got a big stack of topics I intend to write about ... like how I just purchased a scale and how that has messed up my life; or how (when I was a kid) I told my parents I wanted to be a truck driver when I grew up; or even a big ol' toldyaso that "House" won the Emmy for Best Writing (for the episode called "Three Stories"); or to do that "seven things" thing that Wil called me out on; or the vacation I'm about to take this Saturday.  So if I get my connection back before I leave, I'll try to update.  If not, just know that I'm ok, even though my modem isn't.

Withdrawals!  Email me if you get the DT's and need me to talk you through them.  LOL  ~~Kath~~  PS  Oh... I guess you couldn't email me... to just stay calm and you'll get through them.  Don't hold any hot beverages during a particularly violent episode though.  Ouch.   :)
