Denied

Today is a very dark day indeed...One of the real pleasures in my life has been taken away from me, denied of my daily pleasure am I. The bastard Internet monitors at my J-O-B have blocked access to any and all of the blogs that I read on the daily.

I think this course of action calls for my immediate resignation...or maybe I'll just permanently "borrow" a laptop from one of my coworkers...I need some token of consolation...Dammit, now what will I do for 6 hours every day?...work?...highly unlikely.

I need a tall, cool, stiff one to make me feel better...or perhaps a drinky-drink will do the trick.

[deep, defeated sigh!]

Sorry.

try using Google Reader or Bloglines. Just plug in your blogs there and you can see all updates

Christopher said...

Thanks anonymous...I'll have to check it out!

Bruce said...

GAWD...I'd just die. It's bad enough that almost any site with "gay" in it is blocked as sexual, if I couldn't get to my blogs I'd have to go postal on someone.

BTW Christopher, where are the fun places to go out in Long Beach. I'm not looking for a pick-up joint, just some laid back, fun places with cute dancers of course. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

of course i posted that before reading the other comments.

Yeah, I've been using Google Reader as well. You can read, but can't comment. WAAAAAAAAAAA! As for me, there are certain blogger sites that I can visit still, but no pictures or videos will come up!

I know the feelin' Chris! It sucks ASSSSSSSSSSSSS [in a bad way that's!]!

Funny, I thought they had blocked your access to blogs a long time ago, since you never comment on mine anymore.

Doh!

get a laptop, you know you wanted one ...perfect excuse!

Christian said...

Work! Think about our economy!

I feel it's just a matter of time with my company, too. They blocked AIm (but I got around it). They blocked Hotmail (and I got around it). They blocked Gmail (and I got around it).
I currently use Google Reader and only open a blog to comment (or give a hit), but I shudder to think what they'll do if they block my access!

I'll give you big hugs & kisses and make it all better! *muahs!*
I hope the google reader works. At least you would still be able to look at something. Lets cross our fingers they dont axe Flickr or anything else!

Jules said...

Oh no, Topher... that's not good at all!!! I hope you figure out a way around the problem... wouldn't want to be cut off from you forever!

I HATE the fun police!!!

Silly Billy said...

OMG, that sucks! My job blocks questionable material (i.ei any sites with certain words or subjects). Some of my favorite blogs are deemed to be blocked but others (like yours) not. Oh, and they block ALL Instant Messenger services (except for Google Talk for some reason).

So I use Google Reader to view the blocked blogs.

But I have to say, in a way I am glad, or else I might be on the M4M section of Craigslist all day. Kidding. Maybe.

cb said...

yeah my old job did that... then I found a new one!
