Technical Difficulties

Hi! Hey...okay, look...I did not abandon the blog on purpose.  Sure, Monday night between Real Housewives of New Jersey and the snark of Twitter I was left with only three working brain cells and couldn't think of anything interesting to say here.  So I didn't say anything at all. 

But I went to bed rolling around an idea about the small moments in life you remember and whether they're as important symbolically as dream snippets if you're into dream interpretation.  Which I am.  But if you're not into dream interpretation then you'll just think I'm a fruit cake.  If you didn't already.  So I'm shelving that one temporarily.  But not really self censoring, just letting it marinate.  Not unlike fruit cake actually.  huh.

So anyway, yesterday I was totally ready to get back into the fray and tell you all about how the directions on a box of Ghirardelli Caramel Turtle Brownie mix really harsh my creative flow.  It was totally hysterical.  Obviously.  But router died and I lost my internet connection.  I know.  Just breathe.  It's okay.

Mohammed and I did everything we could to save it.  Heroic measures and all that.  He was great, even laughed when I asked if I should stand behind a lead screen as he sent the recharge signal from New Delhi or where ever in the world he was.  Bombay?  One of those.  Anyway, after much on-ing and offing of power and switching of cables and holding down various buttons for 15 seconds at a time they're sending me a new router via UPS Ground.  And I've seen on Twitter how long it's taken all of you to get your swag packages from blogapalooza.  You can understand my slight dismay over the potential delay of blogging from home. 

So for now I can only get on the internet at work.  And I would love to tell you all about those bossy brownie directions but the moment kind of passed for me about that and now the phone is ringing and patients keep. Walking. In. like I don't have anything else to do but cater to them for god's sake.  I mean, there's emails to return and blogs to read and general stalking keeping up with friends!  And I only have few hours in which to cram a near 24 hour a day internet habit!  ACK!

But I did want to let you know where I've been.  And I apologize for this slapdash update post.  I'll be better prepared tomorrow.  Which would normally be my day off but the other receptionist is taking an extended vacation so I get to be here...where the internet is...for more time than usual.  See?  It all works out. 

I just have to make sure childcare is covered now.  Priorities, right?
