Kill the pig, slit its throat, spill its blood
So the internet network here at the ol' jobsite has been down for the past four days. As a result, I have been going absolutely nuts. Really, how am I supposed to survive without my daily diet of various blogs and spam email? I couldn't enter grades into the computer, i couldn't check work email, i was adrift, disconnected, lost in a sea of angry parent emails to which i am unable to reply. My co-workers and I were turning positively tribal. If the network had been down any longer, we would have started hunting each other for sport.
But now (joy!) it's back. And I must go back to work. But not after a few comments and anecdotes.
And "sucks to your ass-mar."
