Is the internet broken or something?

So, all weekend, there's been kind of a dull hush over all things bloggy and internet-y. Or maybe it's just me. I don't know. I went two whole days without more than maybe 2 emails....not even any spam or newsletters or coupons or anything. Myspace has been completely dead. I didn't even get any aNnOyInG, mispelld, bulletin posts from people I don't actually know. It's weird.

It makes me feel like there's something I was supposed to be doing. Like there was some sort of internet party and my invite got lost in the mail. Or there was a boycott nobody told me about. There isn't a boycott nobody told me about, is there? I know about Walmart, and South Dakota....but if there's an internet boycott going on, will someone please break it? ....just to let me know so I can jump on the bandwagon too

It's because of Hawaii. And all the despair therein. Sorry.

Damn! I was about to write a post on the same thing. Still might. But you captured the mood well. My friend who doesn't even blog had the same issue. She said it was wintertime blues.

I concur, however, that it's the despair in Hawaii. If one despairs there, what chance do any of the rest of us have?

Yes, the despair...
(Back of hand to forehead - leaning back for dramatic effect): "Despaaaaairrrr!"

I heard something on TV about "March Madness" - not sure what that is, but maybe that has something to do with it. (?)


(Drop hand to side - eyes stare blankly at the heavens): "Ennui..."

There is a boycott, isn't there? You joined in and didn't tell. Jerk. Go see V for Vendetta.

Has Our Miss Jones succumbed to that pit of despair known as Hawaii? Dammit.

Ian looks serious (and like he may need to have his thyroid checked)

Glad to know you're still around, Jones. Resting > Blogging

Damn, man, my thyroid? What the hell?

Sorry, Ian, I was just kidding. You have no visible signs of hypo- or hyperthyroidism. You're dashingly photogenic and I use a 45 adapter for my profile pic so I don't scare children (and to make myself feel cooler than I really am because I'm going through some sort of horrible, self-doubting mid-life crisis which, apparently, forces me to make snarky comments on blogs).

Actually, I thought that was pretty funny! And yes, I have several 45 adapters at home myself. They are almost as photogenic as yours.

Come back, Flamingo! We miss you!
