Blogging Kills!

Blogging Kills!

according to the New York Times.

Mind you if I could find a way to get paid for blogging (without plastering my blog in ads, 'cos obviously we all love reading blogs to catch up on our purchasing opportunities!), I'd probably become a 24/7 blogoholic too!

But just before 'terminal' blogoholism sets in I'm off to Northern Ireland (verdant land of Philomena Begley, fishing & the odd spot of knee-capping) for a week to see my parents. Who, I might add, don't even own a steam-powered computer and are still awaiting official reassurance about the Year 2000 meltdown problem. So no posting from me for the next ten days, but hopefully I'll sneak a chance to catch up with my fellow blogging brethren at whatever airport internet cafe I can find.

Meantime I'll leave you with my favourite old Irish e-mail chestnut and some cool shots I stole off flick'r.

Dear Receiver

This is an Irish email virus.

Since we are not very technologically advanced in Ireland, this is a manual virus.

Please delete all the files on your hard disc yourself and send this
email to everyone in your address book. That'd be grand, tanx

Once again it appears that something delicious is bad for your health. Eh.

Have a grand time - hope the blogging withdrawal symptoms don't drive you to drink...

Rol said...

From blogs to bogs - have a good time.

But you DO get to drink, right?

Have a great time Laura - keep taking the medication for withdrawal symptoms.
That mole is definitely not looking too well.

Possible Meme that may be more up-your-alley.

Love that photo.

Hope you have a wonderful time. Ten days of no blogging though - that'll be a challenge.

I shall miss you!

Can't wait to hear about your trip! In the meantime, I keep trying to guess what kind of animal that is - poor little thing!

Surely you are back by now??? You've been away forever.

Aw, thanks RB! Yep, it's been hard being 95% internet-deprived for 10 days & then having to struggle to catch up at work before thinking about blogging. I look forward to visiting you all again shortly.
