Wake N’ Blog For November 13th: Playing It By Ear Edition
• Site News. As some of you may have noticed, the Sportress hasn’t been generating much content over the last couple of days. I have been battling malfunctioning computers at work. To make matters worse, my wireless network at home went all haywire. The home network situation is now resolved (thankfully) and I’m slowly getting the computers back to full operational status at my place of employment. It’s been a real grind to say the least, given my lack of expertise as far as computers are concerned. With that said, it will be touch and go as far as content today. I hate it when real work interferes with my non-paying blogging gig. Sigh. But I will do my best to get some stuff up at some point today. If not, we’ll be back to normal on Monday. Apologies – I know you don’t come here to read about my issues at work – you come here for my poorly constructed dick jokery. Thanks for your patience.
