I know you lot are sick of hearing about it by now, srsly. I'm sick of dealing with it.

I really don't know what the problem is. Sometimes, like now, the internet works perfectly fine.

Sometimes, it works slower than dial up, and my IMs won't work and nothing will load.

Still other times, the modem won't even boot up so that the cable light is steady. Or if it does, the lights don't dance and nothing works anyway.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO. I've called and called the cable company, supposedly we have a technician coming out this afternoon. Who knows, srsly.

Do any of you have any idea what could be wrong? Any suggestions for what I could do to solve this very, very, VERY frustrating problem? I would really appreciate it.

I mean in a "I'll write/icon/do something for you because my internet works properly again" kind of way.

Because this is the last straw that I don't need right now. I have enough on me with school and job hunting (ineffectively and not well, it seems). This is my outlet and my only connection to my good friends. Yes, I'm addicted to it a bit as well -- but when your two best friends and most of your other friends are halfway across the country or worse, then you might be desperate to fix it too.

Okay, perhaps your internet connection is being spyed upon my mutant dwarves who are considering derailing your graduation and fab!job plans so make you their underground storyteller. They are checking on the quality of your work in order to assess you. Right now, you are in contention with J.K. Rowling, but they're a bit pissed at her for her poor treatment of dwarves and elves and short-statured mythical creatures in general. Quick! Post something derogatory about dwarves! If you don't, you might find yourself chained to a stone under a mountain, writing fanciful tales for the entertainment of these creatures.


Sorry, no, I'm not that deranged or paranoid. Just trying ot make you laugh.


I'd be cranky, too.

LMAO!! Thank you, I needed that badly. *giggles again*

I could do worse than be a story teller for dwarves. After all, I'd fit right in height-wise ;)

I think they might be in league with my gremlins. They've been unusually active as of late.

*hugs back* Thanks for the laugh. As you can tell, internets are on for the second, but I'm not holding out any hope that it'll stay this way.

I keep traps for the gremlins around the house. They're slippery buggers.

My sons and I "try" to catch a leprechaun every St. Paddy's day. It should be interesting with B this year as he's four and tend to believe what he sees. With W, I put little leprechaun footprints all over the kitchen and turned the furniture upside down--the little guy was mad we tried to catch him for his gold.

You and I would fit right in with the dwarves--I'm only 5'1", though seaislewitch once told me she used to imagine me as tall. I guess I have a tall persona.

They keep stealing my scissors. And hair ties. Last week I had one hair tie, and this week I have three. Explain it, please, b/c I have done nothing different.

LOL how fun! That's great :D

I didn't know you were that short! Though you're still taller than me ;) A whopping 4'10" plus a smidge. I always thought you were taller too.

Aw luv, if I had the answer I'd give it to you without hesitation (even without the bribe). *serious face* As it is, I really think you should consider redvelvetcanopy's theory. It could have some merit.


You can rant at me anytime.

Grins, thanks hun.

Lol, I think I should too. It's good theory ;)

*hugs* Thanks.
