Going through bandwidth withdrawal.

My motel’s wifi is currently horrendous.  It took me almost ten frustrating minutes just to approve Tazio’s comment on the previous post.

Supposedly two routers are being replaced.  Until matters improve, my web presence is essentially null.  Can’t post, can’t surf, can’t explore my new locale except by–gasp!–leaving my room and physically exploring the locale.

Never!

Fortunately my Kindle has recently absorbed a HUGE collection of G.K. Chesterton’s works.  It can tide me over until this motel fixes the problem, or I find a new temporary home.

Socrates reborn.

Having not been around lately, I’m appalled to discover that a humanoid-generated comment has been languishing in Limbo for a week!  Obviously I’m about to approve it (for certain values of “approve”) but I wanted to share it here as well.  It was written in response to this post, “Progressives Are Mentally Retarded”.  Don’t know why someone is commenting on a 3-year-old post, guess it’s vital information.  As in:

You’re a load of ass ejected semen excrement.

“a preference for physical activity,
a preference for high excitement and low effort activities (video games, sex, drugs, rock ‘n’ roll),”

Cover the basis for every facet of life, you uneducated mongoloid. Dunno who’s worse the proggie toad brains or your dumb ass. Another thing is the none-sense about Socialism causing more deaths in one century than in the entire recorded history. The first world war was started by a bunch of royal cunts’ kingdoms vying for control over all kinds of gobshite. This pile of manure being carry over from the pre-occurring imperialistic conflicts started yet by another former royal dynasty. The second world war you’re on about is a continuation of a response from a number of people fed up with royal-cunt none-sense you daft wanker. So before you open your inbred mouth stuff it with more Twinkies so I can’t hear a word you’re saying then proceed to use your gun rights to off yourself. Slainte to all your enemies, wormme.

Obviously no emotional or impulse control problems there!  I stand corrected.

In Illinois for the summer.

Hey!

Just started working at a DOE site that shall remain nameless (but it’s near Chicago).  Should be here about 16 weeks.

No overtime, and no family or friends here, so who knows?  I might put up a post or two soon.  It’s taken as long to climb out of the doldrums as it took to descend, but here I am.

Hope all of you are doing well.

Shama llama ding dong.

I only now have heard about the llama saga.  The only value I could possibly add is to ensure that you’ve all read one of Odgen Nash‘s best:

The one-l lama,
He’s a priest.
The two-l llama,
He’s a beast.
And I will bet
A silk pajama
There isn’t any
Three-l lllama.*

(*Nash always added a footnote to the poem:  “The author’s attention has been called to a type of conflagration known  as a three-alarmer. Pooh.”)

All the best.

The greatest Venn Diagram ever.

Hey all!

I’m in Kansas.  It’s cold, but not like winter of 1997.  Have not been keeping up with current events.  Have been saying my prayers lately, so not as unhappy as I’d been over the last few months.

Hope you are all doing well, and doing good.

Thanks to aceofspadesHQ for this awesomeness.

Clicking my ruby shoes together to return to Kansas.

Hey.

Haven’t been blogging because there’s nothing much to say.  The “West” is doomed.  Fragments of it should survive, and I certainly hope to end up in one of those fragments.  But the hope I had after the rise of the Tea Parties has been entirely extinguished.

Anyway, am leaving tomorrow for an outage job at Wolf Creek Nuclear Generating Station.  Hopefully about nine weeks.  We (me, brother, sister-in-law) are sharing a rental trailer which probably won’t have wi-fi.  I don’t know the plant policy on accessing the internet from work, and we’ll probably be too busy to do it much anyway.  We’ll be working 4 12-hour days, then one day off.

So, in addition to not having the will to blog much, I may not have the way for a while.  Any of you die-hards are welcome to blog here to your heart’s content.  If you don’t currently have the means, leave a comment and hopefully I’ll see it shortly.

I do feel as if I’ve let you all down.  At the height of my blogging, I felt a closer kinship to many commenters than I ever did to most people I know.  But it seems clear to me that sharing my recent thoughts would not be a blessing to anyone.

Gotta go.  Hopefully most of my analyses are wrong, but…honestly, I can’t remember when that’s ever been true.  God bless you all.

And here’s a pic I just saw a few minutes ago.  It’s pretty darn accurate.

Happy post-holidays!

So yeah, obviously haven’t had anything to say.  Hope your holidays were good.

And apparently the President was just in my county, perhaps Oak Ridge itself.

Hooray?
