If I had to describe myself, it would be in a word that has many meanings with a complexity which falls off the tongue.
A word made up of many elements, is deceptive in appearance, and creates an illusion from the imagination.
My word would be Phantasmagoric. ~Summer Ross

Forbidden!

Forbidden

You don't have permission to access /index.php on this server.
Additionally, a 403 Forbidden error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

Permission? but I signed up for it...big pouty face with wide eyes.

 Forbidden? Tears clump all my lashes together.

 Error? my heart drops to the lowest pit of my feet...

 But I really was looking forward to this write on con.....
 "Forbidden" the computer replies with every refresh in my undaunted request to pull the web page for this conference.
 "Fine I'll just find another route" I type "write on con" in the google search bar...
"Forbidden, you do not have permission..." Computer splashes the icky white page across my screen.
"Fine I'll wait for another link to pop up on the blogs" I stick my tongue out at my computer, I knew eventually someone will have a way in.
I rummage through others blogs with links to the conference. Ah I find one listing the activities with links attached "ah ha!" I tell my computer clicking a link...
 "Forbidden" The white screen laughs in my face. How dare it! My computer thinks its funny to keep a writer from a writing conference.
I pull in my pouty lip, wipe my lashes, and tell myself to think. how about an e-mail link from the write on con....so I go to my e-mail click the forums link they sent me....

"Forbidden" That's it this means war! I shake my fist at the screen....another way, hmmm what did that forbidden post say a bad port or something? well fine, lets try from a different computer, I have a laptop at my side...
"FORBIDDEN"
Taps fingers...tapping, tap, tap....pulling out my hair is out of the option- it wont help. Screaming at the computer might help me feel better but wont fix the problem....refresh dashboard, oh look! right there! a saving grace in the blogging world.... Elana Johnson, author- saves the day (mostly) <----click it if you can't get into the conference.

I have my happy face again, :)
