Poetry Fishbowl on Tuesday, December 6
Chrome malfunctioned again this morning. My computer is in virus-scan mode and has been all day, with no idea if or when that process will conclude. So I can't access anything or get anything done. I'm typing this from Doug's computer.

There will be a poetry fishbowl on Tuesday, December 6 with a theme of "All the news is dark, so light a candle." Hopefully I'll actually have a working computer and habitable house by then.

Yikes! Terribly sorry to hear about the combined computer and habitat woes. Wish I lived close enough to offer practical help such as a warm abode with working wireless, and a spare computer, either laptop or desktop...

I find myself wondering if someone else's karma got misrouted somehow and landed in your lap by mistake. The fact that *you're* getting this kind of "cold shoulder" from the Universe seems so wrong, in so many ways.

I agree! Definitely a case of misrouted karma if ever there was one.

Some of it is directly traceable to mistakes that other people have made. The Weebly problems, for example, come from sloppy code. The Google Chrome problems might also.

Some comes from other people not bothering to do their jobs promptly and/or not caring that someone's survival needs are met. Frex, the furnace and firewood. These factors stem from society's general process of collapse. Contrast it with one time we had to call a locksmith, who asked if it was an emergency (i.e. was anyone trapped in a room or outside in the cold) and when we said not, said he needed half an hour to arrive. And then did. Not, you know, a week or a month later.

But hey, if anyone can kick the Universe into remembering it has a bard to support, that'd be great. Because I take zero responsibility for not working if I haven't got the appropriate tools and environment, and the world can just whistle for its salvation while my computer is down.
