Still waiting

If you've ever cursed at a computer, molly coddled it with sweet words, pleaded or slapped the crap out of it, then you can only imagine what I have felt for the last few days. It gets worse. I am at the public library and have been trying desperatly to sign on to blogger, and finally, now that my minutes are about to expire, I am able to. And I forgot what I wanted to write about. Maybe it's the frustration of having a teenaged girl sitting next to me singing along with the song on her head phones. Dirty looks aren't stopping her mumblings, ranting back at her emails etc. Maybe I do need to slap something.

Anyway,oh, I know, I have published a book. Actually I wrote a book for an 83 year old woman who was one of the first settlers in the small Alaska town where I lived in 1969-70. So it is not my creative work, actually SHE published it. It is an As Told To biography. Book title and ISBN # and Amazon info should be available when I receive the book by mail this week. Another thing I am waiting for! Computer part AND book. More details. Hopefully the next time I blog, it will be on my own computer with my own crazy noises, not this nut's sitting next to me. Love and miss ya'll.

Oh, hang in there Miss Linda!I think we can all imagine what it would be like when comptuer is down. It is like being in a glass box, you know the world is out there but you can't touch it!!! Nice that you can stay in some touch anyway....congrats on the book. It is something achieved even if not your creative side. Only more rejections here....makes me feel whipped. Onward with the heat tolerance.....

Oh, I feel your pain!! Can you also feel my back pain?? :O

P.S. I already congratulated you on the book, but I didn't say it "officially" on your blog, so Congrats, Linda!! And I can't believe your library tolerates the intrusive behavior you described! I'd go complain!!

Linda, I don't mean to laugh-but I couldn't help myself. Sure hope your computer-connected soon!
