Lost Opportunities

Foo, my laptop is still in the shop (I have just ordered a power cord for my seven-year-old laptop as well so I'll have a backup), so I have been away from the t00bz. Thanks, people, for thinking of me while I've been out of the loop (this is the first time I've been able to use a workplace computer since Sunday).

I missed some good opportunities for snark... I would have named my Tuesday post Idiots Out Wandering Around (that's some biting Wisconsin humor, there), with the follow-up yesterday "Trail of Santorum from Iowa to New Hampshire" or "Santorum Trailing Behind Mitt"... stupid firewall blocking offensive content! I didn't know this, but the Santorum was gritty (insert "sand in the Vaseline" joke).

I was kinda blindsided this week- New Year's Day was so quiet, with so little news coming in, that I didn't set up any posts for the week ahead, and I figured that I'd have had my laptop early in the week. I have been doing a lot of reading, though, reading books... you know, those slabs of paper, with the individual slices being marked up with ink. Of course, this means that I'll have some material for posts when I have a bleepin' laptop that works!

I'll have a couple of quiet days coming up, during which I hope to be able to compose some posts. Not being able to blog (having a blog clog) has been pretty annoying. I missed blogging, and I missed you.

"I missed blogging, and I missed you."

I think that we all know you mean me. :) I mean, I'm just assuming. I know that I would miss me if I couldn't gaze upon my loveliness each and every day.
Sigh... :)

Do you find that you're getting more done without being online? I'm always amazed at how much I can get accomplished without having the internet available to me.
I mean.. I get stuff done but not as much. What can I say? I'm an addict.

I hope that you get your laptop fixed soon!
I'm sure that you or someone else will correct me in my assumption that you missed me. :)
That's Ok. I have a big enough ego to withstand it I"m sure.

I dunno- I don't have a lot of stuff that I have to do this week... most of the stuff I've done has been oriented toward getting my laptop fixed. I finished a re-read of Dracula and am now reading Griftopia... those big hunks of paper sure are great!

You read books made of paper? Do you rent porn on VHS, too?

I've been waiting my whole life for someone to peel me a grape!

I LOVE reading too but usually someone needs something as soon as I sit down. It's difficult to really get lost in a story when you're always being interrupted.

Griftopia is a good book. I am sure it will scare the trousers off you as it did with me. Hah hah we're screwed all ways until Sunday.
The intertubes were off-limits to me for a bit of time recently and it is eye-opening how much one can accomplish.
