What's a blogger to do when the cable company says they can't get out to fix the internet connection until Monday? I could stay with my neighbor and use their connection. No they actually sleep at 3am. That won't work. I could check into a motel and use their crappy connection. No my wife already thinks I'm crazy, better not. I've got it. I'll tether my blackberry to my laptop and use that connection to at least log on to tell everyone I'm dead in the water, maybe until Monday.
That's right my lifeline to the world has been shattered by cable gremlins. The cable guy said my signals were low! "We have to get you a tech on-site to check the cables". I say "okay it's 1am when can he get here?" Long pause. I think he was waiting to see if I was joking. He says "Monday". I say "Can't wait that long, scrollers all over the world are depending on me to give them their daily scroll saw pattern fix". Another long pause. I think he decided I was not joking just nuts. He was nice enough to say he would escalate the issue to his manager in the morning and see if a tech might be able to get here sooner.
So here I sit at 3:30 am wondering if the world will be set straight tomorrow. Will my digital heartbeat be restored? It's all in the hands of my cable tech.
What all this blubbering means is that I will have very limited access to email. I should be able to get some work done with the connection I'm using now but it's kind of slow. If you are waiting for a Name Ornament order It might take a little longer. Be patient with me and I'll get back online as soon as the guy kills the gremlins.
