Fuck you, North Korea.

It’s 4:45 Monday afternoon. I crawled into bed for a nap just before Sam left for work at 2:15 but only managed to sleep for 45 minutes. While this is definitely a very shitty situation, I’m pleased to announce that the excruciating pain in my left leg has finally subsided somewhat, and I’m pretty sure I’d be able to conk out successfully on the chaise in the family room if I decide to shoot for another nap before dinner. Hold a good thought, okay? I hope to be unconscious within the next half-hour.

There’s been a genuine cyber-miracle in time for Christmas, everybody! After several days of continuous connectivity problems, North Korea’s Internet service is COMPLETELY DARK, TOTALLY OFFLINE and TOAST. Although nobody has stepped forward to claim responsibility — we’re lookin’ at YOU, America! — it clearly seems to be a DDoS (denial of service) attack and not a routine equipment failure. News of North Korea’s rotten luck surfaced just two days after the United States asked China to help screw the hermit nation’s ability to mount cyber attacks due to the big hoo-hah with hacking Sony Pictures. The Howdygram’s official response to the DPRK is simple: HA HA HA! FUCK YOU! DROP DEAD! HAVE A SHITTY NEW YEAR!

I think I need to try for that extra nap now before my head hits the keyboard. Thank you for putting up with me.
