TSS: Half a week without the internet


Our telephone line went dead. I get ADSL connection via it. So I did not have continuous net access for four days, although I did go to my brother's place every evening to check my mails. I had scheduled some posts. So my blogs were not without posts as such. However, visiting others and commenting was not possible and I am still trying to catch up. 

We all know that we feel so vacant without the net. It has become an extension of what we are. Without net, we feel bereft and somehow incomplete. I felt the same way. But that also translated into catching up with my pending work and reading. I read a lot. Finished two novels and am on my third. I also kind of updated my paperwork. 

I am behind my reviews. But I think that reading is far more important than writing reviews. Will get around that too.

Ugh! That would have driven me crazy!

It would drive me crazy, too. But I think I'd kind of like it after a while. As you say, you did get some reading done because of it.

The computer is the first thing I turn on in the morning. Even when I go on vacation I feel like an addict I have to check my email.

I always feel so disconnected when dsl goes down.

It is frustrating how much we expect the connection to be there. I purposely did not get on until this evening in order to enjoy a beautiful day outside.

Being unplugged is incredibly frustrating if you haven't planned it yourself.
