RE-Connected

Ohhhhhhhhhh......shewwwwwwwwwwwww 

My household was without internet access for approximately 6 hours yesterday.  

Y'all.......the sheer panic.  I cannot tell you.  It was so bad, I'm speaking North Carolina-speak and I'm from the midwest.  

We called out the SWAT team, the Geek Squad, the fire department, my high school freshman detention hall monitor, Tigger, that baby from the eTrade ad, the Nasonex bee, Pinocchio, one of the Real Housewives, Kyle Chandler (yum), and the entire Gonzaga basketball team (except - they were a little busy, getting ready for March Madness and all).

So of course -  I was really on hold and answer, hold and answer for about 2.5 hours with the cable company and the 'national' headquarters for Roadrunner.  Which apparently, has been moved to Mumbai, where Christopher told me that yes, he's had very pleasant conversations with people like me since "Slumdog Millionare" was released.

And I came back to find that I'm in an Etsy treasury - OTT!  It's for the new Etsy team that I joined, the NCTriangle Etsy team - wooo hooooo!!!  Check us out! 

AND - another new cool table blogger - 'What were you thinking?'  Please check her out - I'm sure that I'll be outsourcing my blogging to her, and to Miss Yvonne, Insanity Kim and WendiWinn annnnny day now.  Because it will be funnier and cheaper.  BooYa.

heheheh...

my linkage rates are very reasonable...

I like to be paid in poop jokes, naturally. Or cake...mmmm cake...

And if you could do anything about my cellulite that would be appreciated too.

I hope you never lose your internet access again...that is worse than losing your treadmill, sho 'nuff...

6 hours without internet! Sadly, I think I would go crazy...
So....I grew up on the other side of the mitten from you...in a little town called Pinconning (maybe you stopped in on your way "up north" to get cheese???) It is directly across from the thumb, on Lake Huron.
Thanks for stopping by my blog ~~ Michiganders unite! :)

PLEASE outsource your blog to me. You can pay me in collages.

Insanity, I will make you a poop joke cake anytime. Rub bacon on your cellulite - good advice, eh?

Electric W - when are you moving into my house? I will listen to all the voices in your head.

Heart - I'm from over by the pinkie, myself - center of the universe, Grand Rapids. Yes, home of THAT Molly.

Missy Yvonne, you will be getting a collage combining strainers, stalkers and nature alarm clocks.

Liz - I've sent you an email for my giveaway - Yay! gimme gimme

What exactly is a hipster table? I'm sure this is an eye-rolling question, just answer it. I was wondering, is it anything like a foot stool, a hand job, or a head waiter?
And Enquire-ing minds want to know what it is you won from Liz.

Lulu said...

kind of...a hand job by a headwaiter on a footstool at the cool table.
