So how much more damage could an earthquake in Taiwan cause?
Well apart from the usual unfortunate calamites in the immediate surrounding area, there's also widespread random chaos and frustration in the self-involved world of bloggers everywhere as most find themselves with patchy connections due to oceanic upheavals.
What do I do now?
Seriously, the sheer amount of brou ha ha lately seems amazing as previously occupied people now scatter around aimlessly with nothing but time on their hands - especially with the undersea communication cables still down after the cataclysmic event. Inveterate bloggers ( with shockingly more homos like me favouring such social networking sites ) have found themselves wondering what to do with the rest of their lives, especially without an infamous blog to write it on. E-mail queens have suddenly found themselves having to resort to other more mundane, old-fashioned ways of communication such as the telephone ( what's that!? ) or even ( horrors! ) by snail mail. Obsessive net freaks are finally realizing that there's actually a world away from the virtual reality that has been their home for several years now, creeping from the cool, dark confines of their caverns to discover a whole new reality.
Don't get me wrong. I abhor the sudden Neanderthal throwback to the past with connections moving slower than a snails pace but for me, the downtime has served me well since I've finally had the time to catch up on some light reading ( amassed a huge pile of reading material lately that I have yet to start on ), some writing and thankfully, some time to sleep ( something I never seem to get enough ).
And of course catch up with television reruns like one of my old favourites, the slick, clever Pierce Brosnan remake of the Thomas Crown Affair.
