My Name Is Bria...and I'm An Addict!

I admit it, I am straight up addicted to my laptop.

My son called me at work Friday telling me the DSL wasn't working.
Well knowing my son, his 11.5 feet knocked a cord loose somewhere.
So I tell him to chill 'til I get home.
Once I get there, I see the offending red light blinking-no problem.
I go thru all the plugs making sure they're as they should be.
They were.
Ok, time to reset the modem and reboot the 'puter.
*whistling til the reboot completes*

still a flashing red light

dog gone it i have to call tech support.
I'm told there's an outage in my i have a dial tone?
* I don't know, I don't use my house phone, it's 4 my dsl line*
I tell the tech support person to hold on while i check...absolute silence.
Ok cool, I reason that once my dial tone is back, so will my dsl.
To make a short story long-
that was not the case.
I was without internet: Friday, Saturday and partially today (Sunday).

My son checked on me frequently to make sure I was alright.
I was making it.
I took it one day at a an addict is supposed to.
I did read two books during the downtime.

Also, the internet experience is just not the same when I'm on my t-mo Dash, some links do not show up, I can't download like I want to etc.
If i want to read email, or scour the news sites it's fine...but it's NOT MY LAPTOP!!

May he R.I.P.

'though Morgan Freeman's body's on the mend, apparently his marriage is D.O.A.

The ridiculousness of the flight attendant (Sandra Brown) that's suing Victoria Olsteen
I don't think the flight attendants were lying...i'm sure Mz. Vicki did shake her tail feathers, but I believe Sandra Brown is being ridamndiculous.
and OMG, John Edwards/Rielle Hunter-this one I can't believe...I thought this man was the salt of the Earth-with his philandering, floundering on TV-just like all the rest of the politicians-who are cockhounds-and are caught-looking-like-deer-in headlights-so is he-behind!
I mean his WIFE HAS CANCER!! He should've been with her! smh

I am addicted to internet news...and I'm proud of it!

Please know...threats of hell and bible scriptures are futile-look at your church if you don't believe me! Get your 'body of christ' in order and then come talk to me.

Yours in Reason, Bria :)
