She lives (although her technology doesn't)!

I am not dead, in case you were wondering. Please excuse my long absence from the blogosphere. It was due entirely to happenings outside of my control, namely:

  • Despite every effort at flu prevention, I ended up getting sick after all. Flu plus a nasty ear infection and impressively disgusting sinusitis meant that I was confined to bed for a couple of days. Seeing Hellkom STILL hasn't sorted out my DSL at home (7 weeks now since I ordered it), I had no internet. Hence no blogging.
  • We moved offices. And I still don't have access to my own work email or internet connection, more than a week later. Hugely frustrating. Hellkom, the devil of an IT guy and various other evil forces have conspired to keep me unconnected from my beloved intertubes. I am currently writing from a colleague's PC. Yes, every other person in the office is hooked up, except me. NOW do you believe me that technology hates me?
  • TSC is away for a varsity practical week, so I have been in hibernation, enjoying my own company and not really communicating with anyone other than the voices inside my head.
  • Aliens abducted me and removed the part of my brain that blogs, leaving me without anything worthy of writing.

Ok, so I made the last one up. Partly.

But just so you know... I am alive. In the same way that the hopes of the Azanian Peoples Organisation of winning the upcoming national elections are alive... Not really.

This has proven one thing to me. There is life away from the intertubes. It's just not that exciting ;-)

I will try to blog again soon. Hopefully I get internet access on my own computer this week. And once that happens, I will begin the slow task of trying to catch up on all my blog-reading.

Glad to hear you're okay. It's a nasty fly that's been going around - I had it too a few weeks back. Hopefully it will give me a free pass for the winter one later.

Paula said...

Hey T, I was going to blog about how you had disappeared... but I am a lazy blogger. Glad you are back though.

I feek TSC's pain... varsity is a bit of crackpot of late but holidays are coming up... which reminds me; I also enjoy alone time; I was just wondering whether you're enjoying the freedom?

The elections are irritating me... so um... Can't wait to vote and be done with it already.

I'm really glad you're back; missed your blog notifications on that boardy thing on the dashboard of blogger :D

Glad you're well and hopefully posting again soon! Sometimes a forced break from being online reminds us what we're missing ... in both senses.

Hayley said...

Was wondering where you were...good to have you back!

Sass said...

I've been worried about you!

Glad to see the aliens returned you all in one piece. ;)

Helen said...

I hope you feel better soon! And that everything settles down soon!

Watch out for those aliens, in case they come back for more...

Slyde said...

see, you tricked me... i thought the last one was the only one that was true...

nikolas said...

welcome back dear, glad that you fought the aliens and made it back to report. :-)

so, what did the voices in your head tell you to tell us?

Miss T said...

I'll be keeping my eye out for you and hope you get better soon lass

po said...

Glad to know you're still with us!! ;)

Louisa: YEs. It is a nasty fly ;-)

Paula: I'm touched that you considered blogging about my disappearance! The freedom was great for a day or two. Over it now - I miss my man. And he had to go to this damn varsity prac week away during his holiday. UJ sucks.

Brazen: Awww... thanks, BB.

Philly: Too true!

Hayley: Thanks - it's good to be back.
