A distinct disadvantage to subletting is that when something goes wrong, like say, your Internet and phone connection go down for a week (!!!), you are powerless to do anything. This isn’t the first time this has happened here, but it is the first time that the outage lasted longer than a day. “Problems on the line” was the alleged reason, but I’m blaming Seth MacFarlane because he’s just the worst.
This period of disconnection meant that I broke my almost year-long streak of posting five days a week which pisses me off. I’m going to back date the items that should have run on the days I was offline and still count them since they were ready to go, I just hadn’t scheduled them yet. This means that those posts will probably show up in the backlog of readers and RSS feeds so I’m linking to them here as well.
What you missed while I was in limbo:
Possibly the best Word Mystery yet: bleach!
What my brother has in common with John McClane!
Back to our regularly scheduled programs next week, including:
An introduction to French popular music.
How to talk about stupid vampire books without mentioning them by name.
An inside joke reveals a Word Mystery.
