A lame update


After my little vacation, I was happy to be home. However, I returned to a screwy internet connection, which made it difficult for me to post, much less do anything else online. Each click led to an eternity of waiting, so I have not been able to update the blog. This was probably a good thing since I needed to get some book writing done.

But now the cable technician just left and everything seems to be back in order. My only real update at this point is that, after I left California, Acid Casualty was spotted doing a "hip hop dance" on the Venice boardwalk. I'm heartbroken that I missed it.

I'm scheduled to work tomorrow night, barring any unforseen circumstances, so there should be a proper post by Friday morning. Thanks for being patient.

Maybe a " hacker " played around with your computer while you were gone.

yes, maybe some perspective publisher, or jealous competitor loaded a keystroke logger on your machine.

Welcome back, NYH! Missed reading you. Where were you when you snapped the photo? Cali or NJ/NY....I can't tell.

No caption for the pic?

I'm going to guess the Southern State Parkway facing west. JFK is to the west-southwest and LaGuardia is to the west-northwest.

Yeah it sucks when technology lets us down. Or you go somewhere where they are not as advanced as we are here. I just went through that while I was in Germany

Maria said...

if it's meant to be, it's meant to be... Maybe Acid Casualty wants you to come visit LA again... would you?

PS: i missed your posts, glad the cable tech came in to "reconnect" you to us...

Glad your back safely, did wish to see a pic of acid casualty, but your pic of the inflight was cool. How far into the book are you, and any timeline on the due date yet? definitely a must buy.
