i think i'd rather be under an internet blackout than under this "virtual blackout" that we have at the office. i can't get into my hotmail box because it takes eons for it to connect, much less load. i can't sign in to any of my message services for more than a moment because they lose their connection. i'm amazed LJ has been connecting as well as it has been for me. if i make a lot of random posts today, like this one, please don't hold it against me. i just can't find anything else to keep myself from becoming stir crazy.
