Radio Silence

By basic definition, radio silence is a military term signifying that no radio communication of any kind is to be had between a given unit (or ship or plane, etc.) and its base. Sometimes a tragic result can happen as a result of radio silence. In the non-military sense of the phrase, radio silence often means that a particular someone decided to either voluntarily or involuntarily cut off contact with the either the outside world or the cyber world.

In my particular case, I involuntarily cut off contact with the cyber world.

This week has been particularly brutal as the flex part of my work schedule (getting home after 6:30p) had absolutely crushed any desire to be even remotely social, and in fact, turned me into someone who was anti-social with both the outside world and the cyber world. How anti-social was I this week? Facebook was kind enough to send me an e-mail yesterday (12/18) that politely informed me just exactly what it was that I had missed for the week. The only meaningful conversation that I had took place with my cat.

Wasn't that just oh-so---SPECIAL! of Facebook to do that for me?


I am finishing up this very brutal week and at exactly 4:46p, I will be partaking in an extended four day weekend (Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Monday), which will entail of me doing my Christmas shopping, recharging my batteries, catching up with my blog reading and most importantly, picking a few winners from my contest of a week and a half ago. Believe it or not, there is still time to enter. If you haven't enter yet, just mention in the comments that you want in, and presto! you is in!

In the meantime, I leave you with this wicked cool song from Tonic to start your weekend.

  1. Did you cat talk back?
    Enjoy your weekend. Sounds like you need it.
    And have an awesome Christmas!

  2. good to have a nice long weekend. Enjoy!

  3. Cats are often the very BEST beings with whom to have a meaningful conversation, I've often found. Enjoy your 4-day weekend and may you feel refreshed and rejuvenated by the end of it!

  4. Alex: Most of the time, she responds with a very loud motorboat purr. And you have an awesome Christmas as well!

    Charles: It is, but lately it seems like I still fall behind at work when I get back.

    Debra: Thanks, and I agree, meaningful conversations with your cat is often the quickest way to decompress.

  5. I'm in the middle of my own "radio silence". :-)

    Greetings from London.

  6. You know me, I like cats better than most people! Sorry for my radio silence - some family drama going on.

    1. M: I kind of figured as much. That is about the only time when we don't hear/read about what goes in in your world. We'll be here when things get back to some semblance of abnormal for ya.
