Newborns can be so fussy....
Poor =HC=. He just gets 'born' yesterday, (first post here), and then finds out the comments aren't working right. He gets the
joy frustration so many of us have had in playing around with html or whatever it is!! He seems to get that problem fixed, and then this scenario happens:
9:34 Computer working slowly. Has difficult time 'playing' on his site. Reboots machine.
9:39 Computer STILL working slowly. Asks others (Mrs. Who and Eraserhead) if their computers are acting up. They are, so =HC= goes to reboot 'the box' where the miraculous Internet enters our humble abode.
9:46 Computer still has difficult time with the 'net.
9:47 Reboots machine AGAIN.
9:55 Can we say slower than a turtle?
9:56 Calls our Internet Provider (IP). Gets busy signal. =HC= groans.
9:57 Calls IP again. Pushes wrong button, slams phone down.
10:00 Calls IP again. Gets through to a recording, asking for more buttons to be pushed.
10:03 Runs around screaming, "I can't get to my blog!!! Why did you ever do this to me, Mrs. Who???"
10:06 Calls IP again. Gets a real person this time, who says, "Oh,yeah, that was reported about 2 hours ago. We should have someone here to work on it in 30 minutes or so. Check back in about 2 hours."
10:08 =HC= grips phone receiver in both hands, smashing into his forehead. He starts screaming at our IP provider, quoting a memorable line from Rachel at Pereiraville at this post: "you s*(k, you s*(k, you f*(k!ng s*(k!!!!"
10:09 Thinking discretion is the better part of valor, Mrs. Who slinks off to bed before =HC= can blame her some more.
1:25 =HC= finally comes to bed, but with a smile on his face because the internet FINALLY came back on, and he was able to check on his blog.
(Damn....I think I've created a monster!)
