Dear So and So: Back on the interwebs

Dear So and So...

  Kat hosts Dear So and So every Friday.  It's where you get to write letters to those who have annoyed you during the week.  Oh sure, you could write positive letters, but who wants to read that?  Yawn.  Let's get started, shall we?


Dear TKS/T-Mobile/Devils who run the internet service in Germany,

FOUR days with no interwebs? Are you kidding me? You realize that's like making a junkie or an alcoholic go cold turkey, right? Seriously. Mr. HH and I were practically shaking in withdrawal. We constantly checked the connection, yelled at our computers, yelled at the modem, and paced the house, grumbling and talking to ourselves. I think I even blogged out loud, but that could have been a withdrawal hallucination. I can't be sure. Of course we won't get any kind of prorated bill for those 4 days, but what can you do? They control the connection. Bastards.

Thinking of joining a 12 step group,
MIHH (And Mr. HH)


Dear Dutch,

I have talked many times about how stupid slow you are. Every time I give you a bath, which I did yesterday (because I had no interwebs and what else was I going to do, clean?), I am reminded how not smart you are. Normal dogs, like the other 2 turn their heads down when the shower sprayer is being on their head. You, you silly dog, actually hold your head up toward the sprayer and snort water down your nose, practically drowning yourself in the shower. It's a good thing you're sweet, lovable and pretty, because you are not smart.  It's sad really, because you are an incredibly loving and pretty dog.  I suppose you can't have looks and brains.

Loving you and your dumb self,
MIHH (but you can call me Mommy, though you probably think of me as the lady who gives you food)


Dear New Blogger Editing Template,

I love some of your features (like the whole uploading photos and having them on the photo tray waiting for me to put you where I want you-GENIUS), but I'm having issues with you in the compose screen. Why is it when I hit "enter" my cursor doesn't move, but the lines below do? I want my cursor to reset. That's why I hit "enter." Yes, I can move it manually, but um, hello? Enter! It works fine in the Edit HTML screen, but not so much in Compose. This is very annoying. Please fix this.

Annoyed (and lazy),
MIHH


Dear Abs,
I know I've been working you out more than normally lately. I know it's not fun, but the constant pain every time I move in bed, pick something up, stand, sit, laugh is really getting old. I have to work you hard. If I don't, you'll get even flabbier and I can't have that. Just accept that you're going to get worked out. The stronger you get, the less you will hurt.

Painfully,
MIHH


Dear Library,

You rock my world and have saved me about a gazillion dollars in books.  However, the 37 emails a week reminding me that I have an overdue book is starting to get to me.  I know the books are overdue.  I'm still reading them and will return them when I'm done.  I can't check anything else out until I return what I already have, so it's not like I'm just going to keep checking books out and not return them.  You'll get them when I'm done.    I can't block you because you also let me know when a book I've requested is in (which I appreciate) but quit sending me overdue emails!

Overdue but knowing it,
MIHH

I didn't have any internet while I was at my grandmother's house from M-W. I got the shakes...very antsy at night after the girls went to bed and there was nothing to do. :s

I go crazy when I don't have internet! When I go to John's place, he doesn't have internet OR cable TV!! Thanks goodness for my Blackberry!

Pretty or smart? Tough question. Your puppy obviously picked pretty.

Popped over from Kat's place.

Oh, I can't stand TKS. Blah! And I am so jealous. I don't have access to the new Blogger template yet. I am anxious to try it out! :)

Sorry about the 4 days without internet. When we changed the operator some years ago the old company told us they wouldn`t "free" the line for 4 WEEKS to give us a proper chance to return to them, before handing the line over to the new company.
We made it VERY clearly after that, that we gladly would skip the 4 weeks and NEVER would return to them...

HAve a nice weekend.

Thanks for a good laugh this morning! My mother-in-law lives in a very small and rural town. It is impossible to get internet connection in this town, even with an aircard! I have been known to put the computer in the front seat of my car and ride all over the area trying to find a connection. It drives me crazy to be without service for several days!

Thanks for your visit to my Wedding in Venice and your sweet comments.
