Access Denied!

The absolute worse thing has happened!! I can't access my blog or any other blog for that matter at work. If I try, I get this abrupt page that says "Access Denied." I knew this was bound to happen, but I just didn't want to admit it to myself.

It all started about a month ago when people were complaining that the Internet was slow at work. After some investigation by IT, they figured out that there was limited bandwidth as a result of people accessing streaming media. The word "Facebook" was thrown around as well. As a solution, my firm cut off access to streaming media and for some reason online photo albums like Picasa. I learned to deal with it. But I wondered why the hell were people still allowed to use Facebook. I knew people who leave Facebook open all day long. And you know that Facebook is constantly reloading to get status updates and crap like that.

I was just waiting for the day to come that Facebook was no longer accessible. That day had come this week.

I laughed in those people's faces. Ha Ha, I said.

The following day, I tried to go on my blog. And access was denied!! Turns out that along with Facebook, we could no longer visit any social networking sites or personal websites! Ahhh! The woe that is me.

That means I can't comment back to people during the day. Worst of all, when I am bored I can't check my favorite blogs. It's probably for the best. But I don't have to like it.

P.S. On an unrelated note, which I didn't think deserved a whole blog post, I read that Miley Cyrus was voted the worst influence in an internet poll by tweens and teenagers. Haha! Maybe because she made fun of Chinese people. She deserves it. What an idiot. And her song "Party in the USA" is fuggin' crap. Yeah, I said it. It doesn't even make any sense.

P.P.S. What do you think about the word "fuggin'"? I like it.

Speaking of Hannah Montana, I totally think she's the worst role model for kids. I was watching a Hannah Montana episode with my daughter who likes her. It happened to come on after another show and I couldn't turn it off once she saw it. Anyway, it was about Hannah Montana commenting on a tv show that she hated carrots and would rather eat candy corn, then all her fans followed suit. She then went back on the tv show and announced she loved carrots, but then commented that she didn't have time to read and would rather wait for the movie. Then her fans of course stopped reading. At the end of the episode, she tried to take it all back, and her fans in the audience said they were so confused and wondered if she was lying. The whole lesson of the stupid episode was to not follow celebrities and do what you want to do. What really annoyed me was when the interviewer asked her what her favorite book was and she couldn't name even one. The show was trying to make it a joke that she was caught in her own lie, but I didn't think it was funny at all. So the stupid show is trying to teach kids a lesson, but then also saying that it's okay not to read. What is that?!?

Yes, that show is awful. I don't understand why it's so popular. I saw one episode with Rachel and wanted to rip my hair out.

Tina, your comment totally could have been a post. Dork.
