I lied - We have Internet! Hurrah.

Internet restored. Nice. Very nice.

I got so much more sleep without Internet though. That was nice too.

I got tagged for this meme by Ruth last Thursday.

1. The rules of the game get posted at the beginning.
2. Each player answers the questions about themselves.
3. At the end of the post, the player then tags five people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know they’ve been tagged and asking them to read the player’s blog.
4. Let the person who tagged you know when you’ve posted your answer.
