To Be or Not to Be Connected.

My internet connection is being painfully slow today. In calling the ISP to find out why, I made two discoveries:

1) My connection disconnected seven times today.

2) My phone line is up the creek, which almost certainly explains the connection problem.

Called the phone company who confirmed that my phone line is up the creek, and promised to have it fixed by 5pm next Wednesday. They even sent me a text message which said ‘Hi, BT here. Sorry about your fault.’ Chirpy. Mmm…

That was the short version of a long and frustrating story.

So, if I should disappear for some unaccountably extended period over the next five days, it will probably be due to either:

a) Being depressed.

b) Being dead.

c) Being without an internet connection.

d) All three.

Please note the elegant variation.

I’ll probably drop in again later, just because I can.

I know it's not very nice, but choice "b" made me laugh. Always laughing at inappropriate moments, I am.

Not inappropriate. The whole post was my Eeyore component coming out.

I was always very disturbed by Eeyore, or rather, the other animals' treatment of him. They were all like, la de da, let's have an adventure with Christopher Robin, and I was like, "WHY DOES NO ONE CARE THAT YOUR FRIEND IS CLINICALLY DEPRESSED. WHAT KIND OF MONSTERS ARE YOU."

You express your generous and sensitive personality so well, Madeline. My guess is that you make a very fine friend.

I seem to recall that he had a scarf. Maybe a friend knit it for him...

Thank you for making me smile. First time today.
