the best friends you’ll never have

I don’t even want to look at the datestamp of the last post on here. Yet, like all lazy blog owners, I have a pretty good excuse. I don’t have internet or a computer! Those of you who see me around on bsc@lj or the BSC boards may be rolling your eyes, saying, “But Greer, you’re still such an active member and post all the freaking time!” This is also true. I have internet on my phone, which is workable for lj or board stuff, but terrible for writing well-thought out blog posts.

And yes, life without a computer or real internet is HARD. Getting DSL in my apartment is a process I began in the beginning of October. It has involved calling the phone company, a trip to America, a very serious google-stalking session, several phone calls there, two faxes, two trips to the computer store, some phone calls here, a trip to the phone company office, chatting with the grandma, discussion of legal documents, and currently, waiting for the phone company to call me. Nobody has ever said that anything is this country is easy, with the exceptions of getting drunk and/or laid, but if they did say it, IT WOULD BE A LIE.

Then there was the unforunate incident a few weeks ago worthy of Jackie Rodowsky, where a glass of orange juice was spilled on my computer and killed it. There went sixty hours of blood, sweat, and tears in Fallout2, boyfriend.

So now I’m waiting for a friend’s parents to bring me a new credit card from Wyoming, where I had my mother send my new card because I don’t really want to charge a new computer to my cards here. MMM, fresh credit card debt!

Anyway, I have been keeping a list of blog topics which I will write when the sky opens up and down from the Heavens comes a new computer with dsl. In the meantime, look for cassandraclue on lj and greer everywhere else to keep yourself up to date with my sparkling insight into the crazy town of Stoneybrook.

So glad to see a post from you! Will still be here when you finally get your internet back. Sounds like you have had a rough time, but I’m glad things are looking up!

I’m so glad you’re back. I’ve been reading this site forever and kept checking back to see if you would post again.

Oh yaay, you posted! I’m happy now.

Here’s hoping the Internet Fairy smiles upon you very soon and that seeing regular posts from you will become as easy as getting drunk or laid. :)
