Oh my gosh, I'm on dial-up!

~*

Comcast finally came around yesterday and refused to configure my Linksys. Never one to be thwarted, I am using my back-up Earthlink dial-up account. To say it's slow would be the understatement of the century so my posts might be rather bland until I'm up and running again on something faster.

Meanwhile, it's rainy and cold today so I'm cozy in my chair, watching The African Queen for the five-hundredth time! Charlie and Rosie are good company. There's a line-up of movies over the next few days that will definitely keep me under this lap blanket, tea in hand... watching and watching.

These sort of things really delight me, although I'd imagine it would be boring to anyone else. I don't require much to be content these days. Just a good movie, a good book, something decent to eat and occasional company.

In this case, the timing is well - because in addition to being stuck on dial-up, I've got an ear infection to beat all ear infections. It's like being in an abandoned mine. Makes me grateful to not be a canary.

I'll be back in a few days, hopefully with something a bit faster than dial-up and something worth reading. Hope you all have a good holiday - if that's what you're going to be doing. If not, I hope you have a peaceful day.

See? You do have something to be thankful for; that you aren't a canary.

Enjoy your film festival and get well.

I can't imagine being on dial-up again
:-O

Dial up AND an ear infection? Oh dear. Rest up, enjoy your tea and movies and know that your presence in the blogosphere is something that I am thankful for Chani!

I am glad that you're not a canary, too.

Drink lots of tea and feel better soon. Bogart and Hepburn definitely help.

i remember when I had dial up clicking on a page to load then playing a game of solitaire while I waited for it. We had to do dial up for a few weeks after Katrina when the power was on but the cable wasn't. ouch.

hope you feel better soon.

I'm on dial-up.

I recommend downloading the Opera web browser, because 1) it makes it really easy to turn graphics on and off (and most pages you can just skip the graphics on), and 2) you can easily block out advertising.

Really, I don't mind being on dial-up. For the most part I prefer words over graphics, and have never been a fan of all the little animated hoo-haws most sites seem to sprinkle all over their pages.

Think of it as Zen web browsing. :)

You sound amazingly chipper for having a bad ear infection. What a trooper you are!

Your day sounds wonderful. ALMOST makes me wish for rain, although I'd take the snow this time of year over the rain. And we got more today! It's only November! Oh well, enjoy the tea, the warmth and the soft light on the walls. Oh, to watch a grown up movie.

Mary said...

Oh, Chani. Sounds heavenly to me. (Not dial-up)

Tea, movies, a little company. Rest. I'm smiling :o)

No rush to post. There's plenty of time for that, LATER.

Mary
