Dear Valued Readers,
I'm all settled into the new place and back online! "Danger Cave 1" is fully operational! I'll start posting on July 1st, barring unforeseen complications. I'd like to thank everyone who commented, e-mailed, and Tweeted their support during my absence.
Unfortunately, my internet connection's not quite as fast as it was back at my old place. My last house was in walking distance of a community college, so I had a lightning fast internet connection. My new place is so far out into the boonies that it's a ten minute drive to Store. That's not a typo. The nearest place of commerce is a small, windowless building labeled "Store."
There's a huge handmade sign hanging just outside Store's one windowless door promising crawlers. When I asked if the sign referred to doughnuts or bait, a man wearing overalls and a flannel shirt in ninety degree heat treated me to ten minute rant about how Store stocks BOTH as part of fiendishly clever marketing ploy designed to draw traffic both on the way to AND from the local fishing hole.
In case you were wondering, I bought the bait. Upon examination, it was the more sanitary option.
I would have been back online last week, but hijinks ensued when the AT&T guy who came to install the DSL modem I ordered pointed out that the old lady who lived here before me never bothered installing actual phone jacks. The two sockets I stupidly mistook for phone jacks were both itty bitty wall safes with absolutely no internet inside. My brother spent the entire week tormenting me by folding up little pictures of cats and stuffing them into said wall safes to simulate internet reception.
Until I adjust to the slower speed, my daily posts may be a little less frequent than prior to my hiatus. I sincerely hope that you'll stick with me through the coming adjustment period, because I'm creeping up on the poverty line and the ad revenue from this blog is only about three years of growth from pushing me over the threshold. Come on, dollar a day!
