OK, now I can say my day has been officially wasted. In between the errands, and for a good couple of hours this afternoon, I’ve been writing a tremendously long post. I thought I had saved it several times, but I got interrupted a lot, so I guess I actually hadn’t saved recently enough when the Internet pooped out. Pulling up the draft, I have two paragraphs. Two. F’in. Paragraphs. This could have been a doctoral thesis, fer cryin’ out loud. Stoopid cable service.
