We have been having "the troubles" for the past couple of months but initially we had snippets of usage during the day (if we unplugged the modem, counted to ten then replugged it). But for the last week? Lights flashing. Nobody home.
I have come to realise that blogging without the internet is pretty hard. I know! I am a genius!
I can't publish stuff that I write*. I can't read stuff that you write. I can't comment. I can't get my emails.
But I still kept recording things in my head, and writing blog post titles in lists in my phone and wondering how the Conference went and wondering what I should do about this blog of mine.
The service provider is scratching their head about what the problem is, so I won't be back at this gig regularly any time soon. But I really miss it. And I miss reading your blogs too.
In the meantime, I am hanging with the Geege and kids, reading (I can recommend "Freedom" by Johnathon Franzen for a big American novel and "King of the Cross" by Mark Dapin for a gritty underbelly-esque read) and watching TV. I really hope to be back soon.
What do you do when you can't blog?
