A Late Update And More

Well, it was bound to happen eventually. I missed an update. I didn't schedule an update in time, and as such, there wasn't any updates. But I come with good news. My dad got on the phone to BT (our ISP) and they gave us a replacement hub. To be honest, now the cycle has been broken by things beyond my control, I'm contemplating switching the update schedule, and doing less. Even if just temporarily. That is doing a bit less updating, I'll still be reading all day every day.

My brain hasn't been working right for quite some time really. I should have used this time to write some more posts, but without the internet I've not been exposing myself to much, so I haven't had much to write about. I've been really distraught lately still, and my bedroom window isn't on properly and a lot of cold air gets in, so I've been in pretty shitty health as well. Though my dad has sealed most of it, so maybe I won't be too bad later down the line, until winter really kicks in.

But something badass happened on Saturday. I was at my nephews 1st Birthday party (though his birthday was actually Monday) and my sister hired someone dressed as Mickey Mouse to entertain the kids. What's awesome about this you ask? Well it was a woman in the costume and I was worried one of the kids would hug “him” and realise Mickey was a girl (they actually saw her without the helmet on after her performance and ruined it for themselves) and Jessie, my new God, fist bumped Mickey Mouse. Who else can say that they fist bumped Mickey Mouse? I tried to shake his hand but he didn't hear me. I was rejected by Mickey Mouse..

This has depressed me.

Anyway. Now That I do have the internet back, I would read a weeks worth of updates, but frankly that would destroy my mind. As such, here's the deal. Starting from tomorrow (or today if I do it) when you update your blog, I will read not only the update, but all the ones I've missed. I follow over 180 blogs (most of my followers are people I followed, and there are people I followed back too). If I don't leave a comment, rest assured I probably read the posts, but I'm also very polite so I'll probably still leave a comment.

  3. Catching up on missed posts is a tedious job - not that they're not enjoyable, it just takes ages lol! Good luck :P

  4. Glad to hear internet is back, its amazing how dependent on it we have become.

    180 blogs is intense. I follow about 50 but considering there are "dead" blogs and once a month updates, its closer to 35. Even then I have trouble keeping up sometimes.

  5. @My 2 Pesos It's pretty fine, pretty fine. Damn I can't get that out of my head now.

    @Interwebs Fails It's good to have the internet back too.

    @Orang3 Hehe Well I'll get round to it don't worry about that.

    @Hazel Tedious yes, fun occasionally, but it has to be done. It took a full day to catch up when I missed two days, to catch up on a whole week would take days. Not everyone updates every day so I can catch up at a good pace like this.

    @ipenka If it wasn't for the blog I wouldn't be THAT dependant on it. I have obligations on the internet that have my attention. If you take in dead blogs then it's a lot lot lot less for me too. I'm cool with keeping up because it's not like I have anything better to do lol.

  6. It always takes me forever to catch up on blogs when I am out for a little while... the joys of following over 100 blogs... but it's still fun.

  9. @Stone Computer Services It can be quite fun yeah, especially if the blogs are good ones. It's not wasted time if you had fun doing it!

    @Kathy S It's still good to say that it is :) Our internet was fine, we just didn't have anything to receive it with.

    @Maybe You Like I just said the net was fine ^^ We just didn't have a hub to receive the signal because the police still have it, but BT were nice enough to give us a new one. I just wish we called them a week ago.

  10. I'm sorry to hear about that window. Odd to single that out, but I know the feel of having a piercing draft of cold air penetrate my room's defenses.

    I wouldn't take the Mickey Mouse rejection too bad, I'm pretty sure it's hard to hear much of anything in that big head. (The ears aren't real) hahahahaa

  11. Power of the internet. I've never fist-bumped mickey, but I've also never been to Disneyworld.

  12. @Henry It's kinda an odd thing to single out yeah but it's also one that affects me most. If I'm out of it with colds and flu I'm no help to anyone, and won't be doing much reading, writing, or even moving. It is true that ears aren't real lol, it took her a few seconds to register just what Jessie wanted from her too.

    @Generally Disgruntled I'm yet to visit Disneyworld too. Frankly I doubt I ever will.

  13. Wow! Sounds like you may have bitten off more than you can chew reading up on posts you missed. But don't worry, I haven't posted in over a week!

  14. When I came back from a months long hiatus, I had over 500 updates to read. I just hit "mark all as read" and started new the next day, haha.

  15. So Mickey was a girl? I wouldn't wanna fist bump her... i'd wanna fist her! (was that me going to far?)

    Good luck with reading all the posts! Glad your back! It was quiter here with just your posts but no comments! (yes I come back multiple times and read the comments you leave!)

  16. Childhood-related rejection is never nice. Feels so damn back. :C

  17. I think you're a tad too much of a perfectionist.

  18. @Danjor21 I'm a big guy so there's not much I can't chew on lol. I would do that but I made too much of a commitment to read them. If I was gone for a month though I'd have to do that lol.

    @Bersercules Nope that's not too far, she was surprisingly hot. Even Jessie was making jokes about "entering her magical kingdom". You are one of the few who come back and read replies (or at least replies to replies) but even just a few makes it worthwhile, and gives the place a nice personal touch.

    @Fang I'll get him if I ever go to Disneyland, or at the next party I happen to go to where someone has hired her. Yes I used him and her to refer to the same person.

    @Shaw Possibly. Never really considered myself much of a perfectionist though.

  19. @Mark Did you take pics of Mickey Mouse chick?

    ReplyDelete
  20. @Bersercules There are pictures of her in costume but not out.
