So here is what happened.
My blackberry died.
I got another hand me down blackberry.
I started using an old personal cell phone.
My office phone is working occasionally.
My outlook is eating up my emails.
My internet connection at home isn't working.
My gmail is randomly moving important emails to the spam folder.
In short, my life, as I know it is falling apart.
So I did what any normal person would do. I asked a friend and she told me that mercury is in retrograde. I asked her what the heck it meant and she said that when mercury is in retrograde, supposedly there would be issues with communication including electronics. Mercury was a messenger and a God of Communication. A planet is described as retrograde when it appears to be moving backwards through the zodiac.
That explained everything.
