No Internet & Billy Mays

So the internet has gone kaput in our apartment and it's driving me crazy. We're not sure when it will be back on either, so I'm feeling very disconnected from the world. The last time it went out, it turned out someone was trying to illegally download Paul Blart: Mall Cop so I'm really hoping those people learned their lesson and the nice apartment people turn the internet back on for those of who actually pay money to see movies in theaters.

I've tried scheduling posts too, but somehow that got broken on my blog and it's not working either, so my reviews will be up later in the day until I'm connected to the world again.

And what's the deal with Billy Mays dying? I don't know if I can ever watch a sales pitch for OxyClean or Mighty Putty again.

  1. Poor you! I'd die without my internet (or rather I might actually read more of my books at home!), but hopefully you get things straightened out.

  2. My internet has been acting up ever since my wireless router died and I had to get a new one. It will just turn off at random times. So annoying.

  3. It's sooo sad. Breaks my heart. On the radio this morning I heard the 911 call from his wife. Made me cry.

  5. It's not your fault the scheduling isn't working, it's a Blogger glitch.
