I got a comment via email yesterday and I couldn't respond to it because I have no internet connectivity.
The commenter posted that my blog sucked lately and that Why Was That and did I plan on it sucking long time? Well, that sounds ... dirty. Is that better? Innuendos help make a blog better long time?
I will tell you again (which I started to do so in the previous-but-now-deleted-post-which-abruptly-ended-and-was-posted-when-I-didn't-know-it-was-posted-because-I-had-a-seizure-mid-posting... Please excuse the previous three sentence post which is NOW GONE.) that I have been without any connection to the outside world since the Blizzard of 2013 and that's been more than a week.
Shout out to Verizon!
- I have NO landline PHONE.
- I have NO INTERNET aside from what I see scrolling on Facebook and what loads on Teh Googles when it wants to via phone cell tower.
- I forced Mr. MM to buy a cell-phone hot-spot so I had internet access at all inside the house. It doesn't work so well. But, here I am. It's worked for 300 words so far. *hits save again*
- I have NO cable TV, nor satellite, nor much of a DVD collection.
- Did I mention there are four children here? O-o
- This IS the mini-apocalypse. Forbid what happens when we have REAL WEATHER here. 9-10 days of power loss and communication fails for snow? REALLY, 2013?
- We have had ONE HALF DAY of school in the last 10 days, and now my kids on on VACATION.
- The day after the blizzard, we had a death in the family, my kids had their first wake experience last night and funeral today. (All is well, they did wonderfully...)
- Are we having fun yet?
I don't know what is going on in the world other than what I hear on NPR while cleaning my kitchen because that is where the non-internet radio IS.
For example, during a post-wake gathering last night, my children and I surrounded a television that was on the local news.
We saw an EXPLOSION IN THE SKY and thought the world was ending. WHAT IS THIS?! WHAT WAS GOING ON!? It was just the sky over Russia imploding, and very old news, but new to us.
We might be losing it.
