    I'm back Yeahhhh! Over night from Monday the 21 to the 22nd of October we had a mega wind storm. It blew the wireless Internet receiver right from here to kingdom come and I was without my lifeline to Hubpages. The downfall of living in the country is that the repair people have to come from the city and it wasn't till today 11:32AM that it got fixed. On my first anniversarry to the day when I joined as a hubber I couldn't access my home away from home... I have no fingernails left... I have a twitch in my left eye... I will have to fix twenty fist holes in my walls... the cold turkey withdrawal is a horrible thing to put an addict through... There wasn't even a
    H-A meeting anywhere within 1000 miles... boohooohooo woe is me... life sucked...
    Do you get the picture that I missed you guys?
    Howdy all! How is everything? What did I miss? zs

      I am glad you made it back. Withdrawal is not fun at all. I have a hub with suggestions on fixing holes in the wall, if you're interested, just let me know. lol

    Sir Dent had holes in his walls? Now I understand the name.

    Glad you are up and running again, Zs. Storms occasionally cause outages here, but things are usually put back in working order pretty quickly. We once had a wind storm after a period of ground softening rain. It took down several big trees, so the power company crews couldn't get down the roads until the lumberjacks came in and cleared the way.

      Rochelle, you have opened my eyes. Sir Dent....holes in the walls... it all makes sense now
      Spryte, I have to keep stoping myself from rocking back and forth and mumbling incoherently I should be getting better slow by slow. zs

      The dents came from my many battles with the enemy. My armor is dented. I am deeply hurt by your implication that I might have holes in my walls. sad



      Of course I could just be joking too. tongue

    Welcome back Zsu!  You poor thing...that had to have been awful.  I remember my own computer withdrawals eons ago and it took me forever to get out of the fetal position.  Glad to see you survived!

    The exercise of applying spackle paste to the holes in your wall should reduce some of the twitching.  Mumbles take a little longer.

    A whole week????  Just the thought brings on the mumbles ...

    Glad you're back, Zsuzsy!

      Actually the best thing to do for twitches is to smack your husband around. Do it often for long periods of time. I know this because um .......................

        Unfortunately I don't have a husband anymore (lucky for me) But thinking into the smacking him around a bit has a nice sound to it, I could try to find him and try that as a cure...

    I was that way once - so addicted - until I went through several months of writer's block. I still checked in at HubPages but I was pretty silent and couldn't come up with a hub to save my life it seemed.
    But thanks to my inspiration for my uses for pantyhose hub I'm back!  And now the thoughts keep rolling in!
    (Maybe I should have added that as another use for pantyhose - curing writer's block smile

    Welcome back.  I know what it's like to be jonesing for your Internet.  But your back now, so just breathe.  Breathe in... breathe out... breathe in....

    Welcome back Zsuzsy Bee.

    I can't go even one day without internet. We spend long weekends at our place in Vermont all winter to snow mobile and enjoy the season. We have just a small cabin there. No TV, no cook stove, no furnace, no cell service.
    I love it.
    Just the wood burning stove, a full bar, and DSL.

    With work and fatigue I have also scaled down on the Hubs this week.  I miss Hubbing, but sometimes I get a little too addicted to the Internet big_smile

    I just love the internet, I'm hooked line and sinker. I didn't realize how much I depend on the hook-up and how much I miss checking out hubs etc. Have a great day all. zs
