back in business!
things with paolo didn't work out. plus, while my computer was melting down, our apartment was hit by Hurricane Mother-in-Law, so my attentions were frazzled at best. my father-in-law, the coolest cucumber this side of the frozen veggie aisle, did an amazing job of trouble shooting and updating my software on out of the 1980s. then, after they left, microsoft assigned me a gentleman of ambiguous nationality called Marcus -- i do believe Paolo dumped me, i really do, after all i was prepared to do for him, too. Marcus and i cleaned up the rest of my 'puter the other day. so all systems go!
but. then. time warner's FUCKING CABLE WENT DOWN AGAIN. no interweb access. for the past two days, i have been sitting here with a high-powered, updated, clean as a whistle computer and nothing to do but play solitaire which i don't actually know how to play. i was like the captain of a world cup sailing team equipped only with tiny inflatable floaties. much like some other aspects of my life, i had become totally impoten-- oops. typo!
um, yeah. ok, so i have about 10,000 ideas for entries to write and i will probably never get around to them all (the baby, who is going through a demonic developmental spurt, is actually taking a nap at the moment, please sing your hosannas accordingly). and then i am going to take a little moment to delete 8,495 accumulated e-mails without actually reading them. i shall return with witty new entries perhaps even later this evening.
thanks for your patience. lord knows i haven't had any.
