Thursday Update

Not quite long enough to be a ramble, but I did want to catch everyone up. 

Our internet at home went out a week ago today.  We finally got it back yesterday, while we were still waiting for the technician to visit.  That visit was scheduled for today. It just came back on by itself.  Don't know why, but I'll take it.

I hate using my phone for much more than short messages.  I have Fat Thumb Syndrome, which when combined with the Autocorrect Blues, leads to the dreaded Irritable Eddies.  I curse too much as it is, folks.  I don't need to create situations which will call for more cursing.

This outage also happened to hit when I had no time to drag my butt and the laptop to a spot with WiFi.  Sometimes, it is what it is.

Thankfully, I had several "silly season" posts already scheduled.  I've started writing those as I think of them and scheduling several of them throughout each week, about a month ahead of time.  That way, if something happens on this end, like an outage, you still get your dose of Eddie that makes you wonder why you keep coming back to this here blog.

It also gives me room to write the longer posts, which then either get slotted in the empty days or replace one of the "silly season" posts, which then goes back into rotation.  (That's why you keep seeing that close up shot of a very handsome fellow popping up from time to time.  Be glad that didn't come all in one week.)

One casualty of the outage was my pre-Free Comic Book day post, which was supposed to go last Friday.  I was still wrapping it up when we lost the internet.  Since it's too dated now to use, I'll just have to set it aside.  Sigh!

Since I also had to miss Mother's Day on Sunday, here's a late shout out to all you Mothers and Grandmothers and Other Significant Female Presences!

I'll do a proper ramble on Monday, and, if I have time (and the damn weather cooperates), I'll share some finds tomorrow.

Losing my internet for a week would drive me batty! Not that it's a far trip to start with ...

I despise using my phone to read blogs and try to comment since it seems to have a mind of its own. For instance I sent a message to someone today that read: Since your under God I will come again to see you when you are fielding better. Every single time I type under, it selects God as the next word. I have been computer deficit several times in the past - it's like a hole in my life. I seem to be able to fill it with junk however. Chucks and I thoroughly enjoyed the update you sent on the dragons.

Oh, Eddie. You absolutely SHOULD post ahead. I went about 5 days not writing anything, but you wouldn't know it. I finished FOUR posts TODAY, but I may have no Internet access from Saturday-Wednesday.
It's particularly useful for occasions - anniversaries, holidays. I just wrote my Memorial Day post. If i want to tweak it, so be it.
