One month countdown to DSL...

I found, a week ago, that DSL is FINALLY available out here and I immediately ordered it. I thought I'd be filling my blog, oh so quickly, with lots of pictures by now. But no, I must be patient. I won't have my starter kit until Nov. 14th. Aargh. It's that feeling you have once you've given notice at a job and the remaining hours at work are torture. This dial-up is suuuuuuch an agonizing wa a a aaaade through wasted moments. Uploading pictures takes just too long. So I will be continuing with reading others' blogs while I wait for the miracle of speed on my own and in Nov. I will be posting way too many events at once. Gillen and I are going to a bird festival in Jekyl Island this weekend, just the two of us. And I still have to post pictures of the wedding, and of Block Island, and of the canoe trip we took last night on a local river and of the Green Lynx mama spider we had in our home that was protecting its egg sac for a week.

it took us several months to get DSL here. through some loophole in the demand analytics we succeeded to register our area as a substantially higher position. we called everyday and put in a request and they logged it as a new request not linking us to the people who have been calling everyday for a month. i look forward to the colorfully photographic posts.

Wow. Three really cool people read my blog. I love all of yours'. Karl, your comment led me to your blog which in turn gave me good ideas for our upcoming chicken slaughter. I will use your idea of calling repeatedly if our DSL doesn't come through next week. Actually, I'll start putting in requests now. Good idea. Diana, I will definitely post about the Hannah sprinkling. There will be a second one soon at the farm.

Please tell me that you have moved into the fast lane. We're waiting for you...

It's November 16... no, wait, it must be close to the 17th at your house ;) Where are the high speed updates?? Are you too busy developing your My Space page??

Madeline said...

Wow! I did indeed finally get in the fast lane, Stephanie, but have ben so busy out on the highway of my very busy life lately that I have barely been on the web!!! I think you may have all inspired me to start afresh. I haven 't checked out My Space yet Diana. Then there are all of the possibilities with my mac and with learning how to do slide shows! How to go without sleep. that is the question.... Look for a very picture packed update soon. no, really.
