I Blog, Therefore I Am

Is everyone away or are people just tired of me? Do you miss the vomit, is that it? Ah, well, I've been fairly busy myself, packing and trying to mentally prepare myself for 13 hours in the car with the kids. I've also been steeling myself for an impending 12 days without the Internet.

I don't know if I can do it, folks. The lack of Internet, that is...I mean, what if while I am away, I miss something like this gem? [posted at The Opiate of the Masses]



How did we entertain ourselves before the advent of the Internet, anyway?

Larry took the entire crew to the teens' workcamp reunion picnic, leaving me home alone to work in the blessed peace and quiet. I don't know if the younger kids were actually invited, but guys can get away with being clueless like that. And they brought brownies.

By the way, all you husbands out there - listen up! When your wives remind you to take all the freshly-baked brownies to the picnic? "All" means "all but two." Got that?

Good. Now go away, all of you - I'm supposed to be working...

  1. I'm still here. No, I don't miss the vomit.
    We have plenty of brownies, should I send you some?

  2. I am an internet addict. But I think that's part of being a blogger, right?

    Also - since I now know you, next time your employer needs to hire someone you can feel free to send them my way.

  3. I don't miss the vomit either, we have enough here to go around. I'm not sure what I did before I discovered the internet, let alone blogging. I must have been SO boring!

  5. I am going to Brazil for 5 days and I am hyperventilating!! How are you going to do it?

    Not just blogging, but what about e-mail?

    (Gasp, gasp...)

  6. The video is better than the Harry Potter puppet pals with the pipe bomb that my kids have been playing and replaying and replaying...

  7. I would send you some brownies, but we don't have brownies here, we do, however, have a large amount of chocolate chip cookies. My kids made them, and I found them to be a bit crunchier than they should be. Apparemntly, egg shells will make cookies crunchier.

    And 12 days without the internet?
    I don't think it can be done. It shouldn't be done, it's almost inhumane.
    Isn't there some sort of satellite technology that can be used to provide internet access for you?

    I hope you have a nice trip anyway.
    We will miss you.

  8. I'm here! I've been sidetracked with baking cookies to send to camp and reading stuff from your "Places I Visit" sidebar. So it's partly your own fault. Have a safe trip and may the vomit stay at bay.

  9. Nope, not bored, and not missing the vomit. Not in your life. Nor in mine. *Sleep* is what's missing around here. Tempted, so tempted to phone in dead to the job I love and spend the day horizontal, alone, and blissfully unconscious. Go enjoy your tribal migration. We'll be here when you get back.

  10. I just got back from 12 days of no internet, and lived to tell the tale! It can be done. Actually, it was rather freeing. Of course, during that time I *did* get to meet Mrs. G, so it wasn't entire blog-free. ;) Now I feel so privileged: I've meet you AND Mrs. G!
    May you have a vomit-free vacation! :)

  11. Hey, I just got here (via Conversion Diary links) -- now you're going away? Was it something I said?

    ReplyDelete
  12. Enjoy your hopefully vomit free vacation!! The rest of us will just sit patiently, waiting around for the return of your fab blog posts! Will you be cleaning out the fridge before you leave and doing a totally rockin' As the Food Turns? Or maybe just leave everything in the fridge until you get back, that would make a great blog post!

  13. Wouldn't it, though? But scary...

    And Green Girl - he took all the brownies. Meaning, I didn't get any.

  14. For the first few seconds as your web page loaded, the only things I could see were "The Vomit", "13 hours in a car", and an ad for Pepto. Coincidence? ;)

    How are your teenagers going to manage for two weeks without facebook? You may need to find a web cafe for an afternoon...

  15. that reminded me not to take ALL freshly baked muffins to work tomorrow (colleagues birthday) :-) see, hanging around other people's blogs is indeed educating!

  16. No internet AND no brownies? Oh cruel, cruel world.

  17. I think everyone is away. I notice it's pretty quiet everywhere. Yesterday, I realized at Office Max I had to go out and buy my son "school" supplies...you probably get why I got in my car and cried.

  18. You could buy a wireless air card for you laptop. They will supposedly work anywhere a cell phone does. They are probably very expensive. I couldn't survive without the internet for a long time, my 3 middle boys would be fighting constantly.

  19. You mean that after all those years of marriage, the hubs still can't do chocolate math? Honestly!

  20. My favorite bumper sticker: "Republicans for Voldemort."
