Technical Difficulties

While not impossible, it will be very difficult to post for the next two weeks or so.  

Our Compaq notebook suffered a nervous breakdown and will be gone for at least two weeks.

Only posts of momentous import will appear.

Forget my other posts. UPDATE

Please go here and read a fellow mser's troubles. They are not uncommon to many people with ms.

Please read her posts and offer her prayers, direction, if you have it, and help, if you can.

She is struggling mightily, but the situation is dire.

We have a response! See below: if anyone else can follow suit, it would be great.


An awful shock.

We had weathered last week's Night of the Long Knives. I was on vacation and sent worried emails on Friday. Turns out the day had been Wednesday.

We were all sort of silently rejoicing by Friday that we were safe (this time around).

We were wrong.

Yesterday a coworker in our department was handed his hat when he arrived to work. The ladies in our department were in tears. That did not include me. I was too furious to even cry over his bewildered expression.

This happened because he wasn't here the day they handed out pink slips last week. The people in Binghamton were too lazy to return (way, way, way out here, a whole 40 minutes away!) the next day to inform him properly.

Too involved in their own stupid selves to properly handle the termination. So a working man had the entire weekend through Wednesday to believe that he would have a decent Christmas, after all...

"Human resources" just doesn't get it. God damn them to Hell forever and a year.

Go to Little Pond for today's post.

Also, I missed the latest cut at the paper. Things are still being pared back, and our duties are shipping bit by bit, up to Binghamton.

In the middle of my vacation week

And yet I still need a nap, every single day. And that is after 10 hours of sleep at night!

I am mystified, because I thought I was doing better.

One bright spot: last night I was running through the channels when I came across the PBS special broadcast of Black and White Night. They were running a telethon.

Husband RJ came in and set the DVR to record. I never knew he like Orbison, too!

Even the telethon was less annoying because it had people who knew him, including his widow. We watched the whole thing together. Sometimes I was crying; Orbison had the most amazing voice and manner, just staring (I think) off into the distance.

It was pure magic.

I slept like a baby that night.
