I Swear It Will Get Posted

This has been one of those crazy weeks.  I usually don’t complain or make excuses, but if I stuck to that trend, I’d have nothing to post today. 🙂

Episode 12 of the TriRiot web show has been finished and ready for almost a week.  Actually, it wasn’t completely ready until yesterday, because just before I was going to upload to YouTube, I saw a mistake that just had to be corrected.

Ok.  Mistake corrected.  Now what?  Last night, I had planned to wake up at my usual 4am this morning and get online to do the uploading.  You see, I can only transfer large files on my home internet connection between 12am and 5am.  Otherwise all my allotted bandwidth will be eaten up for the month.  Don’t ask me to explain.  It’s satellite internet.  They meter my usage.  When I woke up, I had that feeling that something was not right.  I overslept by two hours!  I didn’t even hear my alarm which I usually don’t need.  So on to plan B.

I left the house early and  was on my way to the Brown Dog Coffee House to get on their internet and upload the video which is a 20 minute drive.  (By most people’s standards, I live in BFE.  I have a negative zip code number.  Lewis and Clark were my realtors.  Mail is delivered by mules) .  I parked the car, but didn’t even get into the coffee house when I realized that I left my wallet at home.   I couldn’t afford the 20 minutes it would take to turn on the computer, transfer the file, etc.  I couldn’t be late for work today.  So I drove home, got my wallet and went to work.

So there’s my excuse for not having the latest video posted.   Next time I make an excuse for something, I’ll embellish it with alien abductions or CIA operatives.  You know… just to make it more interesting.
