The Internet

A few months back I got cheap internet through Comcast. For such a slow speed I'm pretty impressed with how fast it actually is. I don't watch videos on it or anything, but for email and uploading pictures, it makes pretty good time.

The problem is that the connection is hideous. I had someone out last week to fix it and he was much pleasanter than I've found Comcast employees to be in the past. But my connection still comes and goes as it pleases.

So I'm having another Comcast person come out tomorrow. It seems like it should be a simple thing. They hook up the internet and it generally stays hooked up.

But this is not how my life works.


  1. slow internet connection stressed me out! well, i can always go out for wi fi service but too lazy fot it! hope the better internet connection will be yours (again) soon!


  2. frustrating...hope your computer woes get fixed soon!

  3. Yeah, I don't have a lap top or smart phone or anything so it's this or the library. And the internet works sometimes, (like now) but it can be hours between times.

  4. Just discovered your blog. Love your illustrations.

  5. Tell me about it!
    I had the worst connection for about a month, about a month ago and it was so very frustrating!!
    Especialy when you're trying to run a blog.....

    Love the illustration!

  6. Thanks Fabric :)

    Perfect Day, yes, the blog thing is ridiculous. and trying to send people their proofs for custom work.

  7. I have a pretty good connection but it's so frustrating when it suddenly goes out without so much as a hint of its intentions! Hope yours becomes nicer!!

  8. Hi Melody,

    I love your artwork... Ah, I can relate about the internet, cannot live with it but hard to live without it. I've actually been having bad trouble with my blogger account for the past several weeks, I don't know if it will ever get better...I feel your pain.


  9. Thanks for the kind wishes for my internet! It does seem to be playing nice for the moment :)
    They sent out someone who seemed to be uber experienced, so that's good :)
