Excuse no. 1: We've been away for the weekend.
Excuse no. 2: My puta has died. Waaaahhhh!
I'm currently on Younger Son's computer, which is fine and dandy for internetting but has none of my novel stuff on it.
Last time shaking my puta did the trick but even that has failed this time. (Elder Son, whom we've been visiting, suggested my shaking might have something to do with the problem but I don't make a habit of shaking it, only doing so when necessary.)
Husband is going to see if there's a loose connection tomorrow. He might look at the computer too ...
