My phone was out when I woke up this morning. The Internet was still working, so I read the news while I was eating breakfast. Shortly after that the Internet went out, too. At that point there was nothing to do but wait.
The phone is still out, but the Internet came back on a little while ago. I’m hurrying to post this, in case the @#$%$!!?*#$! thing goes out again.
I lost a lot of my workday today, so the news feed may well be the only other post I put up tonight.
