bientot: borrowed from <user name=controuble> (headbang)

So I've spent the last week offline - for some reason my computer has timed out on everything. I could get to gmail by using the html version, and even managed to get a couple of messages out, but no blogs or anything like that. Tonight a friend brought over a tiny baby laptop (it says 'ASPIREone' on it, it's about 7"x10" and the keyboard is way smaller than my fingers!) and I'm so glad to be able to get back online again! I figured I should let people know why I've been so quiet....

I'm so grateful to [ profile] loree for giving me a Kindle, which has kept me from total withdrawal - I've been enjoying some very long fanfic (I'll try to pull together some recs) and she remains my personal goddess.

Other news - my claim for Social Security Disability has been approved and I will be getting gubmint chex as soon as (yes, really) I prove I'm a citizen. It's a little complicated, since I was born in Germany, but I'm working on it and am much encouraged by the promise of an income sometime soon.

I'm so far behind here I may never catch up - please let me know if I've missed something important!

White Collar returns July 13! (In case you missed that. *g*)

Very important.

congrats on the SSDI approval (although frowns for you having to need it).

I'm so glad you've been approved! I know disability isn't much (I'm in the middle of applying for it, too), but I love the fact that if I get it, it'll just appear in my bank account, reliably, month after month after month.

Re missing something on the internet -- take advantage of the fact you've been gone to step quietly away, and maybe not come back fro another week. There's been a VVC wank of literally thousands of posts, and it has saddened me mightly. You're honestly better off getting the summary when it's all done, and not living through seeing people you've always liked saying horrible things about other people you've always liked.

Congratulations on cracking the social security/disability nut. That's a tough one! Good luck with the final bits of paperwork.
