Did Ya Miss Me?????

No, I have not forgotten about you. I am not off with my non-cyberspace friends and shunning my blogging duties. I am perfectly aware the complete responsibility of sharing humiliating stories about my family and how you all depend on them to get you through your day. There is a "tragic" story about where I have been. Unfortunately, we had a death in the family... Our computer was struck by lighting!!! That's right, STRUCK BY LIGHTING!!!

I know what your thinking, "Was the computer out playing golf?" "How is it that a computer, that is safe inside, get struck by lighting?"

Well, if you ask Matt, it's all my fault as most things are. So, I going to tell you the story and let you decide if I am the stupidest person walking this earth. Here it goes.

It was a dark and gloomy night, so what better way to spend it than searching the Internet for Johnny Depp pictures? After all it was the day before his birthday, I needed to make it special just in case he reads it. Then he'll want to meet me, then he'll fall in love with me, then he'll buy me a vineyard in France..... I'm getting off track.

As I was saying, I was searching for the perfect picture for Birthday Johnny Depp Monday, when...KABLOOOIE!!! Lighting struck our modem. (surge protector, smurge protector) The computer just made a sad, weird little noise, and then nothing! Matt scolded me for about 2 weeks and I am forbidden to be on the computer if there is even a chance of rain in the week.

I guess I should have known that something like this would happen, I mean we are talking about US!!! I'm not even allowed to shower if it's raining because Matt's so paranoid.

Now I bet you're thinking, "Why not get a new one?"

Well, I have an answer. Matt got hurt at work, nothing serious, but he was on workman's comp of a couple of months. Workman's comp only paid 60% of his salary and they didn't give him any overtime for sitting on his ass watching "The Price is Right"!! (So unfair!) So, little extras like new modems were out of the question. Things are now getting back to normal. Matt's back at work and having daytime TV with drawls and money is now starting to come in.

And because I am always thinking of you, I made sure the modem was one of the first purchases after food.

Now that that's over with, WE HAVE SO MUCH TO TALK ABOUT!!!! But not tonight. There is a line forming behind and I am hearing grumblings about neglected Webkinz.

So, I will leave you now with 2 words and I will explain later; STUPID BRANGELINA!!!!!!
