FINAL GIRL explores the slasher flicks of the '70s and '80s...and all the other horror movies I feel like talking about, too. This is life on the EDGE...beware yon spoilers!

Jun 11, 2007

ugh...ugh, I say.

People, let's hold hands and console each other for a bit. I know that after my "I'm kinda back" post you were expecting some real content...and I was expecting to give it to you. So where have I been? Why do I suck? And won't someone think of the children?

See, my internet was supposed to be turned on last Thursday. When Thursday came and went with no internet, a call to the phone company resulted, basically, in an "Oh yeah, we totally forgot. Sorry, but we can't turn it on until Tuesday now. Peace out!" You've been waiting for posts and I've been sitting around with nothing to do- to put it mildly, the internet is vital to my work. I mean, a webcam without the web is just narcissism, you know?

I've watched a few things and afterwards I concentrated really hard and tried to send out reviews telepathically to all of you; I guess since no one commented you didn't get the messages. Next time this happens I'll try smoke signals or pigeons. Or midgets on scooters, maybe, delivering little mimeographed reviews right to your door. Why midgets? They're smaller and have less wind-resistance, so they'll be faster, that's why.

Fingers crossed the internet will "magically" appear in my new Super Secret Headquarters tomorrow...and in the words of Leprechaun 4: In Space, AT&T, this is for you.

This is why God invented WiFi -- if you don't have a connection, just mooch off your neighbor.

LOL, nice touch...

Good to have you back with us.

Isn't it great when internet you pay for doesn't work at all?

As they said on the late, lamented NewsRadio, "Internet? Internot."

Sad man said...

I know how you feel. I guess we've all been there before.

I'm gonna go watch April Fool's Day in your honor.

Three things that drive me crazy: car problems, computer problems, and internet problems. Glad to have you back...fingers crossed!

"internet...that's the one with e-mail right?"

Did you happen to see Ghost Rider, and if so what did you think of it?

Theron said...

Re: telepathic reviews - Was that you? Whew! I was totally freaking out...

Jen said...

Do you need me to place a call for you and ruffle some feathers at AT&T, cuz I totally will, they don't even know the pain and suffering they are causing us all. I hope all goes well today and you are back up and running full force, better then ever! Loves ya!

Midgets, definitely midgets.

Jen, if you would "take care of business" over at AT&T I'd definitely be grateful! :D

I'm back on line, hooray! The best part was the company's attitude, which amounted to "It was or fault, but tough shit". The good news is, we're getting a free month of service out of the deal.

Mariana- I haven't seen Ghost Rider yet...I just can't bring myself to do it for some reason. I did watch DOOM the other night, though, and I thought it was fun. That has nothing to do with Ghost Rider, but I thought everyone should know anyway.

Yay, internets!!
