off the grid

Okay, that headline is an overstatement. I have not forgone electricity or gas service or phone service. And I did not voluntarily ask Comcast to obliterate my wireless network …
… but apparently that’s what they have done. And it won’t be fixed until tomorrow.
I’ve toyed with the idea of hanging at the local coffee shop and tapping into their free wireless …
… but that would involve the purchase and consumption of too much over-priced coffee. Followed by bad coffee breath and a stomach ache.
Instead I opt to tap into my husband’s work-delivered signal via his Blackberry. It’s slow (I’m not complaining … much) so I’ll keep this short.
1)     I’m going to take advantage of my wireless-ness to get some real work done around here and …
2)     I’m going to use this lesson in wireless-ness as a sign that I have been way to closely tethered to my laptop and my blog. It’s the universe telling me it’s time to ‘step away from the computer’ and …

Need to get that ironed out.

    I had a nasty virus of the computer kind about 10 days ago. Put me down for a week. There is still a bit left to do but mostly I’m back up.

    (And, as you can see, I’m trying to catch up on my reading and commenting!)

    Hope you were able to get some good work done – off the grid!
