Damn you, Hercules! DAMN YOU!

Woah! Okay, folks: forty-eight hours of postless silence is unusual, and four days is a national disaster. Rest assured that you will not be seeing such in the future, if it can be helped.

Well, you have my little brother to thank for that. I think one of this girlfriends wanted to talk to him on MSN every night from 7:55 PM Alaskan time to 11:30 PM Alaskan time. Even I'm not on that much. However, during that long separation from my beloved Internet, I had some time to think about how I feel about the 'net and what it means to be separated from it.

Put simply, I felt like a mighty mythical Hydra, only all my heads have been cut off; the very image of power subjugated. After some ruminating, I realized that a neuron is a more appropriate metaphor: Livejournal, IM, forums, and other things are how I both relay and gather information, similar to dendrites and axons. Sadly, this soma occasionally found xirself isolated from all xir siblings, and that isn't fun. Not fun at all.

have you ever seen a hydra? the tiny little oraganisms based off the mythical creature? they look and look like a helicopter.

They do! I think they're kinda cute; our high school biology class got a chance to look at a lot of them under microscopes -- we stumbled onto one of their metropolises in the river or something.

I guess Superhydra wasn't powerful to save them from the bucket invaders.
