A storm move through here yesterday morning about 5am. Of course, I was online at the time and I don't realize how bad things were outside until the first really big lightning strike and thunder crash. Power flickered, etc. In the process, I believe my modem got fried. I get no dial tone on a perfectly good working phone line. I can even hook a phone to the modem and dial out on it, but when I try to dial out with the modem - nada, zip, nuffin' muffin.

So today I hobbled up here to my dad's office to use his computer to catch up on LJ and e-mail.

Concerning my Beastie Boys site: I finally got around to doing the lyrics for "Ch-Check It Out" and got it on-line. I must admit, after getting really intimate with the track for the purposes of my annotations, I like it much better than my intial reaction to it, which was kinda lukewarm. Maybe the album won't be so bad after all. I know it won't be anything like the trio of brilliance that was Paul's Boutique, Check Your Head, and Ill Communication, but hopefully it will be on par with a level of tolerance that was Hello Nasty.

I've been playing a game in the Civilization franchise called Call to Power and have found it somewhat addicting. The problem is, in my dreams at night, everyone moves a limited number of steps on a turn basis.

I wish my entries could be more interesting, but such is the life of the temporary invalid. If all goes well, however, I should be in a walking cast by this Friday and putting weight back on the leg. Hopefully I can get full use back of it quickly and get back on the road. Kentucky's beautiful and I love it to death, but my soul was made for roaming.
