They Hate Me

The computer gods that is. I FINALLY got my work PC back up and running AND the Internet connection repaired. That being said, my Internet is working at about the speed of dial up.
Uh. Remember those days, pre-high speed Internet? How did we live?! I know, right?
Last night The Dude and I were watching the boob-tube (holla atcha Popscicle!), when a commercial came on advertising satellite Internet. I've heard tales of areas of the country that only have access to dial up to this day. Could that actually be true though? I thought it only tales told to frighten children and gamers. Apparently not. The commercial was specifically directed at people still using dial up.
Those poor people! Can you imagine waiting for your daily dose of YouTube videos to load? I mean my gosh! Can you imagine trying to surf through your favorite blogs at dial up speed? I shed a tear for those dial up folks. Poor souls. I had a nightmare about it, and this morning, my nightmare came true, sort of. All I know is that this crap better be fixed BEFORE the big SITS Spring Fling.
Now, on to more important business. My best girl, whom you know as My Shasty (aka Sassy Pants Wifey) has gone and created something wonderful. She's always trying to find ways to help people out. She has started a new blog called Care Across the Cities and I am so honored that she has asked me to be a contributor. The main point here is to help people! We all read blogs where the author seems to be a bit down. Maybe they got some bad news, stress at work, something. We want to cheer them up! We want to create a network of people willing to send cards, love, prayers, good vibes, comment love...ya feelin' me? We'll see where this all leads, but perhaps one day it will be more.
There will also be little suggestions on how to do more for your fellow man/woman. This country (and others for you bloggers from far away) could use a little more love and encouragement.
Spread the love people. Pay it forward.

That sounds so awesome!
My mom still has dial up and I about die every time I'm home visiting and I'm trying to use her computer!! I just want to pull my hair out one strand at a time while I'm sitting there waiting!! :D

Dial up should just be abolished all together for the goodness of humanity as a whole.

Dial up is just dreadful.

I love that idea. The blogosphere has been one of my life saving outlets. I would absolutely be on board to support others in times of "ick". Bring it on!
