Internetlessness sucks eggs

As much as I slag Eskom off, Telkom deserves a beating too.

Sorry for the absence of a post yesterday, but dear Telkom stuffed up and cut off our ADSL because they decided we hadn't paid. Numerous phonecalls later, and much quoting of reference numbers by our harried accountant, we are online again. But I'm still not happy about the fact that our business (and my blogging!) grind to a halt until they shuffle their papers around and realise that proof of payment is staring them in the face. Makes me wanna pull a crazy recluse ketteh stint and lock myself away. Not sure about the house full of ladies though.


Anyway, I must go catch up on everyone else's blogs, but first, my exciting news for the day: We've booked into a guest farm for two nights of the long weekend and I CANNOT WAIT! I just need to escape the city and my routine for a bit to get some fresh perspective and have a bit of a rest. So looking forward to it.

Have a fab Tuesday, people!

*Does anyone else remember how Ling (Lucy Liu) used to growl in Ally McBeal? So wish I could do that ;-)

I loved that growl. I wish I could do it. I tend to make a snarling noise that leaves younger, more impressionable colleagues weeping. As for the kitty inna box pic - lovely giggle.

i'm also getting away for the weekend and i'm very excited about it!

Telkom does suck. Eskom more. But Telkom have their days!

Sweets: that and the ability to be invisible!

Charm: You'll have to stick an audio clip of that on your blog sometime. LOL.

Angel: Enjoy KZN and be careful on the road.

Sleepy: Not far - we're headed to a guest farm in the Harties area. It's only half an hour drive from us, but it's still an adventure.

Ches: Welcome. Thanks. Come back soon ;-)

TJF: Awww... that's so sweet of you. Do you have any plans for the long weekend?
