We have dialup service.  Two of us entered the FanLit contest which means for the last six weeks our phone line has been constantly tied up.  We have received complaints about it from employers, teachers, doctors, family members, and friends.

I didn’t care.  I was busy writing, submitting, rating, commenting, inviting, and generally having a grand old time.  Little did I know we almost cost my husband a new job.

Luckily the same medium that messed us up saved us.  When my husband’s new boss couldn’t reach him by phone to tell him he got the job, she emailed him.  Doomed and saved by the Internet.  Aint life grand.



  1. Eek. I’m glad it worked out!

    Bet you jump when you hear the phone ring these days!

  3. Seems like the phone only rings for the kids, or it’s a political survey.

  4. In the next week, we’ll all be getting deluged with recorded messages from candidates and their pals. I have a service that blocks most telemarketers and political ads, but some of these things STILL get through. It’s almost enough to make me wish we were still on dial-up instead of DSL. 😉

    Congrats to your husband on his new job!

  5. Thanks Lynne.

    We’re unlisted and they still get through.
