An Flist Thing 
12th-Apr-2008 03:14 pm
Whew, finally! I'm back online after three agonizing days of being completely disconnected. My internet connection went down last Wednesday and has been that way ever since. I have no idea what's been wrong and neither do the guys from the phone company who have been trying to fix the problem. Today I got so sick of the current situation that I made some arrangements and voilà - I'm all connected again! Thank heavens for that! (I'm such a hopeless internet junkie, it appears...)

I'm sorry for the lack of comments and whatnot during that time. I'll try to catch up with everybody as thoroughly as possible, but if I've been too thick-headed to notice something you'd like me to see or comment on just give me a nudge and I'd be happy to pop by. That being said the next couple of days are going to be really hectic because my posting day at seasonal_spuffy is almost here and I haven't been able to work on my manips due the fact that all the photo archives have been unreachable for me. So yes, I'm swamped. And yes, I'm panicing. I'm panicing like never before! I can't screw this thing up. It's too important. And so if I'm still not fully present for a couple of days more it's because I'll be manipping like a maniac.

Hope everyone's been alright. I've missed you lot.
*hugs and kisses*

Oh no! Sorry to hear about the internet explody-ness. Must be a relief to have it back at last. Good luck on your manips. I'm sure you'll do a great job. I'll keep an eye out for them.

Awww. Thanks! It's truly a relief to be able to access the internet again. Actually I'm so relieved it's almost embarrassing. Like am I really this addicted? Can't go a couple of days without the internet without going all cold turkey? But then again, I'm certain that I'm asking myself these boringly adequate questions only because of the lacking internet dosage. In a couple of days I'll have this nightmare put behind me and the questioning be damned. *g*

As for the manip matter, thank you so much for the encouragement! It's always appreciated and now more than ever. Come hell or high water I'm going to work my ass off to get something ready in time!

Heh, this is why I never sign up for ficathons. I am utter crap at writing stories under deadline. It just has to happen when it happens for me. I signed up for last round of seasonal_spuffy, had started a draft of my piece in August, and then the idea totally died on me by the time October (or whenever it was) came around. I learned my lesson =/

But! That was not meant to deter you. It just proves that you are a brave soul to take on the deadline and I'm sure you'll make it with flying colors. One day I might have to commission something from you. Your work never disappoints.

Oh, I totally suck with deadlines, too. I always have. There's just something about the pressure that comes with being committed to a schedule other than mine (=it's ready when it's ready) that makes me jam up. And the more I try to force it the more deadlocked I become. It's like trying to squeeze blood out of a stone - frustrating and hopeless.

Hence that this seasonal_spuffy thing is the first challenge I've ever signed up for and I doubt I'll be doing anything alike any time soon. I wanted to make an exception with this one specific community, but if I survive this round in one piece that'll be it. It's just not my cup of tea - even without the internet disasters...

Your work never disappoints.

Well, there's always the first time for everything, right? *g* Although I gotta say that I sure hope this wont turn out to be the occasion I end up popping that one particular cherry. It's little bit too public to my taste... ;)

I feel you, I freak when my Internet goes out for like a second. I would be completely lost without it. I can't wait to see your manips=)

Before this disaster went down I was actually under the delusion that I wouldn't be completely lost without the internet if push came to shove. Yeah right. *rollseyes* Little did I know.

As for the manips, I can't wait to see them myself, lol! I can only hope I'll be able to come up with something worth seeing despite the tight schedule.
*goes back to manipping like crazy*

I'm so happy for you that you got your internet connection back. It's hard to be out of touch. Welcome back!

I'm so relieved that the whole to internet or not to internet - situation is over now. It was really weird not being able to reach anyone - I felt kinda lost without you guys as pathetic as it may sound. So thanks for the warm welcome - it truly is good to be back! *huggles*

I know how you feel. I moved in the fall and ended up without internet for a couple of weeks all told. I was crushed to be out of touch for that long.
