Gone fishin'

I have been without the internet or a computer for the last 10 days. It has done my head in, proved many night time visits to the library necessary for the high schooler and all sorts of inconveniences...Which is ridiculous but a reflection of our lifestyle these days.
School holidays are approaching and we are off and away (more adventures for the travel blog).
I will be taking a break from all things electronic and hopefully enjoying a more carefree and relaxing existence. (Read Feed* everybody!)
So have a wonderful holiday, those of you with schoolies, and treasure the fun ahead.
Back in May, and I apologise if my lack of computer access means I didn't swing by your blog. It's not that I'm not interested, I'm banished.
Good luck to everybody on Monday for the announcement of the Voices of 2013. I'm hoping to see the list before I go...so I'll raise a glass to those that make it, and if you don't, I'll raise a few more. At least 500 of us will be in the reject list#, so we'll have someone that we can say "If they didn't make it either, I can't feel that bad about it" ;)

PS I'm sitting at a terminal in the library next to a guy who's going nuts because a library social group is talking too loudly. I don't know whether to butt in and tell him that they're allowed...it does make me feel like I'm not the highest strung person in the room...HA! (gramatical error intentional - it sounds better that way).

Linking up With Some Grace for FYBF

*M.T.Anderson. He wrote it for teens as a warning about all the interconnectedness, making us better consumers, rather than better people. Brilliant book people.
#Surprisingly, I'm assuming I'm not through with either blog. How can that be possible??? It's like the Oscars really...or footy tipping.

  13. I didn't make it, but didn't expect to (tho you do have that faint hope...maybe, just maybe...
    Some big blogs, which I was sure would go thru didn't, so I really either read in different circles or have no idea (possibly both)
    But to make anyone who missed out feel better, I missed out with TWO blogs nominated!!! As I think I'm the only person who did that, none of you should feel bad :)
