This is going to be one of those posts. Sit down at the table, pull your cup of coffee (or tea) close, grab a few cookies, and let's catch up. My computer had a slight breakdown last Monday, and I have been without computer or internet since then. It will hopefully be up and running soon. This is what I have been doing while I wait for it to be fixed...
What do you do when you can not use your computer or internet?

- Find yourself losing your voice because of so much reading aloud.
- Read more.
- Watch Cranford.

- Think about how you would like to update your Goodreads to reflect all of this extra reading.
- Sneer at the tv when the news reporter asks you to tweet your opinion about an important story.

What do you do when you are separated from the internet for a long period of time?
(I need suggestions to help me make it through the rest of this week)
