Verizon is a bitch

Technology isn't being very nice this weekend. Our DSL went down earlier, and then went back up and then went down again. I have no idea if it wants to stay up now, but while it was down for the last hour-and-a-halfish I folded all the laundry in the master bedroom (*GASP*), put another load of laundry in the washer (*GASP*), and did dishes (not *gasp* because I am the dishes caretaker).

I feel so ... productive.

If I don't post until my return to work on Monday you perhaps know why. Or, I'm barely conscious in a garden ditch somewhere. Always another possibility. Those garden tours get raucous.

I can't stand it when my internet is down. It makes me a little bit crazy.

It is a good thing that you were able to use that time to get stuff done around the house, though. Imagine how clean the house would be if there had been a really long outage. You would probably be able to eat off the floors then huh? :)

Perhaps you could arrange for them to suspend your DSL service for an hour or two each week?

Perhaps I should just *pretend* my DSL is down for an hour a week. :)

I used to have so many different hobbies. Now when the internet is out I just lie on the floor, whimpering and sucking my thumb.

Fishnet - Are you making fun of me for sucking my thumb?!

Joefish said...

Totally not. I sucked my thumb habitually until I was about 12. There's no way I'd make fun of someone for that.

Did you have a blankie too? I still have part of my blankie. Oh man, I miss sucking my thumb sometimes...

Hmm, perhaps this explains everything about me.
