I would tell you all about how I commenced FUH-REAKING OUT yesterday during the ice storm (ice storm. in April. buh-bye, New England… gonna miss you NOT AT ALL) when my internet went down, but I’m too sleepy to do it justice.
Short version: I spent all day working on the New Big Project and literally just as I was trying to turn in my work for the day, *POOF* no connection. Way to make a first impression. Thanks for hiring me! I done broke the internet!
Comcast’s solution to my fickle connection is to do nothing at all, but usually when they run their nightly maintenance things magically start working again. So I got up at 4:00 this morning to work.
Many thanks to Otto for filling in, last night. I totally picked him because of his pinch-blogging abilities.
Before I faceplant into the keyboard, I just want to point out that I am about to be trounced by Dooce in the Best Parenting Blog category of the Blogger’s Choice Awards, which, WOW, who could’ve predicted THAT? So I’ve decided to focus my narcissism in a way I can back up with conviction. There are lots of lots of great parenting blogs out there, so I certainly can’t tell you I’m the best with a straight face. (Hey, you want to vote, great, but I’m just telling you how I feel.) On the other hand, I’m just egomaniacal enough to say that yes, there are many great shopping blogs out there, but Want Not has the very best ratio of money saved to entertainment. There, I said it. So if you want to vote for Want Not for Best Shopping Blog, you would be very pretty indeed. (Dudes, I got up at 4:00 this morning to post about the Amazon Friday Sale so that you wouldn’t be left bereft and bargainless. FEEL THE LOVE.)
