OMG, I have missed you people!

Before we go any further, I want you to take a moment to hug your computer.  Hug it tight.  Even if it's old or slow or makes a lot of noise.  Hug it and tell it how much you appreciate it.
I love you.  I do.  I will never complain about you again!

You see, I have been home-computer-less for about 3 weeks now.  I have 2 laptops in this house that have both just gone to hell.  My old workhorse back-up computer then lost its wireless adapter "dongle" to apparent suicide. The first few days were the worst. I really thought I might actually die. I realized very quickly how much I rely on computers.  I don't own a phone book anymore, checking Vivian's progress at school can be viewed online, I look up recipes constantly, when I see a URL in a magazine I just have to look it up. Now. 

I resigned myself to just working on my office computer but time seems to run short during the day, so no blog posts have come out of this brain in weeks.  The next thing I know I'm telling myself that I'm okay, I'm now used to not having a computer, but I don't have to like it.  Since I have two people "procuring" computers for me, I have not rushed out to buy one.  Then, my wireless modem starting acting up, so even the iPhone ceased to be much help.  (That's not so bad though, because I think trying to use my iPhone as a computer is making me go blind.)

Enter Time Warner.  Got a brand new, newest model modem on Thursday.  Got advice on what to buy for my old clunker desktop computer and promptly went out of town.  Upon returning, I realized the iPhone still wasn't connecting.  I ran out and bought a wireless adapter, plugged it in and (of course) there were problems.  So, Time Warner sent one man today who was later joined by the guy from last week and an hour and a half later, they have me back up and running.  

This was a really long way of telling you that I'm back, Jack (as Uncle Si would say.) I have nothing food related to share with you today, as my mind is still reeling from the reintroduction of Internet magic to this house.  But, I will tell you I've been gathering some information for a not-too-distant-future post that I think you'll all get a kick out of.  So, stay tuned!  That reminds me...I need your help.  Will you please ask friends of yours to "like" my page on Facebook?  I need more "followers" in order to qualify for some of the cool giveaways that keep coming my way.  Then, I'll have fun posting those for you guys to win cool prizes, products, swag, etc.  www.facebook.com/gastronomybyawannabechef.
