And by "he," I mean Santa Ana. And by "Santa Ana" I mean the gale force winds that blew through here last night, not the Mexican general who killed Fess Parker and Buddy Ebsen.
Anyway, I apologize for the absence of posts, but the Internet has been out since sometime after midnight, and according to the computer-generated voice I get whenever I call our provider (which manages to sound both robotic and impatient, like a Dalek that would LIKE to exterminate you, but is simply too fucking exasperated) there is currently no ETA for when service might be restored. So I thought I'd see if I could post a Please Stand By notice using my phone.
Apparently so. And it's every but as tedious to write as it is to read -- like a cyber-Jiffy Pop!
Hope to be back online soon.
