Um... Just kidding. ;)

So Comcast went ahead and dutifully canceled my internet access yesterday as I had asked them to. I lasted about 20 minutes. Then I started freaking out. I was all irritated about something and I couldn't even figure out why. I started swearing at things and was genuinely mad for, I think, the first time since I quit my job. Huh... so that's what withdrawal is like. =P Honestly, I felt like a Borg removed from the collective.

I spent much of the day on the phone with Comcast begging them to reactivate my internet connection. They were able to bring it back today.... aaaaaahhhhhhhh. I feel better now. You might get a couple more posts from me before I head out. And I'll be looking for an internet cafe shortly after I land in Thailand.

Still slowly getting rid of all my stuff. I sold my TV and my bed today... which is ostensibly good because I really do need to be getting rid of stuff. But you know - now I have to sleep on the floor. =(

Thank you to all of you who have been leaving such encouraging comments - I really appreciate it. I mostly keep this blog for myself, as a kind of journal with pictures, but it's nice to get feedback now and then, makes it feel a bit more like a conversation & less like talking into the endless vacuum of cyberspace.

And thank you to the Portland folks who came to the picnic today - I had a great time and will miss all of you while I'm away.

When you get to Thailand, the withdrawal won't be too bad, but living normal life here--yeah, it's bad. Now you know why when we move I always make the internet connection the LAST thing to go! ;-)

This is one of the many reasons you are a wiser woman than I!

I am a total internet addict. I have been since 1992. I've been weaning myself off and it's going well. I go several days at a time without turning it on. I've quit blogging and reading blogs.
Why am I here today? I have a headache so I thought I'd check out my old haunts.

So did you get your connection back? Once you go digital you never go back! :-)

Mags - it's good to see you here again... I've missed your blog. But I understand wanting to step back from the computer...too much time online can kinda skew your view of reality. Hope your headache is better now.
