The electrician was working in my office this morning. Unfortunately, that’s where we keep the cable modem and house firewall. I was offline almost all day! I ended up watching TV - it was kind of weird after a couple of years of just being peripherally aware of whatever kid show or DVD was on for the poopers. But I am once again able to descend in to my blogospheric cocoon. While I was gone, apparently we surrendered in Fallujah. I’m working on a post about that.
