Rage Against the Dying of the Light – then Rage Against the Machine

…from time to time the night hides light…

Ah yes, I have read your e-mails oh tiny following of my little blog. I would like to thank the 4 of you who took the time to send repeated e-mail requests in efforts to get me blogging again. It’s quite humbling that up to 4 people actually found my posts interesting in any sort of way so this one’s for you – Jamie C., Tomas V., Marty T. and Music Pimp II. You Rock!

While I do have a laptop again and a DSL internet connection, it is not anywhere near an ideal situation for me and my blogging ability has been greatly reduced. 1) I live out in corn-cow country and aside from dial-up, DSL is my only option. As some more technologically nerdy folk out there know, the farther you are away from the CO, the slower your internet speed becomes. Well, I am at the very end of the line, so I may be better served using high-speed dial-up. This little problem also prohibits be me from watching my NHL Hockey online as well. (I don’t thing hockey withdrawal is covered under any health policies in the USA – maybe Canada has a clinic I can check into though).

2) My laptop is a basic, stripped-down, Acer that I purchased for an off-key song and was puked on by my late diabetic cat, Dirty Harry. I miss that little guy like you wouldn’t believe, but once a cat vomits on your laptop while it is open and you are using it; the inegrity of the electronics and keyboard becomes less certain. As it happens, I am a dork-geek with a bit of free time, so I did manage to get my laptop back to some useful capacity recently. Can’t guarantee that it won’t just crap out on me, but for now, I have operational keys to press.

I have seen so many movies and read numerous books. I just do not have time to go into specifics, but I have read all of Dan Brown’s books by now and really enjoyed “Deception Point”. I also read a book about Chuck Yeager, mostly written by Chuck Yeager and I simply am astonished that he lived to be an old man. As for movies – I’ll get to them in another blog but I’m sending out my happy thoughts to all those who worked so hard to give us all “Boondock Saints II – All Saints Day” – all I have to say is “Shut-it”. Rock with that low-budget sequel. I’ll sell some of my eggs if it will help get a number III out for the viewing pleasure of the Boondockians.

Usually, I would reserve the hockey stuff to my other blog, but this one feels more appropriate here – to all those Flyers fans who feel like invading my space in Harford County, MD – keep your orange north of the Mason-Dixon line. I’m holding strong with the “Rocking of the Red” south of the Mason-Dixon line. If you cross over MD-139, you have entered full-on CAPS territory. I may be the only CAPS fan that far North, but I’m a pain in the ass CAPS fan who has plenty enough gumption to give it right back when you yell things at me when I am wearing a CAPS shirt or hat. Feel free to give me shit when I venture up to Shrewsbury to shop on the weekends, but I’m one feisty little girl and I’m claiming a “return fire” rule below the PA line. Thanks for the incentive to shop in PA.

To my 4 questionable readers whose interesting e-mails helped get me back here – I will work to get back into the swing of things – I promise. Just give me some slack – I do have some health issues and I wake up at 4:30 A.M. every morning, have a 3 hour commute to work (round-trip) and get home again at 7:30 P.M. I am in bed around 8:30 P.M., so I can get up and do it all over again. I work at secure government facility and cannot access this blog from work at all. I work on a full-time contract and have consultant work on two other temporary contracts. Right now, I am working on a full-scale recovery effort and my health issues drain me faster than I would like.

Don’t worry – I’m on it and I will do the best I can just because I wouldn’t want to have 49 e-mails sent to me in one day explaining why it’s important for me to post on my blog (Tomas – I think that’s actually harassment – but I’m letting it slide because you ended every single one of the 49 e-mails with “GO CAPS”)

Go make a pie and then eat the entire thing in one sitting – peace – mia (sciencegirl99@excite.com)
