Ahh, Internet...How I've Missed You

Sometimes I think it's so sad just how much my life has become connected to being online. The Internet went down over the weekend and I have been sadly missing it's appearance in my life since Friday. Luckily I was able to head to the library on Saturday and work on stuff like homework, reading blogs and checking Facebook-which is always important, right? But trying to watch a movie Saturday night without the help of IMBD? My fiance and I couldn't take it! We pretty much watch movies with the laptop nearby, looking up people whenever we have that "what were they in" question that always bugs us! And when I needed directions to take the computer to the wireless place-I couldn't Google Map it! (And I desperately need Google Maps to help me get around!)

It should be working again this week (hopefully) so reviews and other posts might be a little sparse. And if you think about, send happy thoughts to my laptop!:)


  1. Haha, I know how you feel! Lucky the Internet came back on when it did. :)

  2. Internet basically drives the world these days, the slightest blip and whole company's shudder

  3. *sending happy thoughts to your computer and everyone's computer*

    Oh, I hope you got a lot of reading done in the downtime :)


  4. I'm the same way about looking up phone numbers. We always recycle our phonebooks because we don't use them. If the internet ever went down I'd probably have to call a friend if I needed to look up a number. :) And we use IMDB when we watch tv/movies too!

  5. I had the same problem this weekend...well I was away on a mini vaca...but I didn't have internet very much and it drove me nuts.
    *happy thoughts to all laptops everywhere*

  6. I know...I'm so pathetic. I'm always checking my email, playing games, Googling myself....it's really kind of sad.

  7. Steph-Isn't it sad how you miss it so much?

    Storyheart-It really drives my world too much!

    Cecelia-That's the best part of no computer-it makes me clean and read.

    Alyce-I need IMDB with my movies! I'm always surprised how many people call the library for phone numbers! I guess when they can't look it up, a librarian can!:)

    Erika-Glad you're internet is back too.

    Bookworm-I have a circle of e-mails, facebook, blogs, and then back again that I go through to make sure I've checked everything! haha


  8. The internet is a hard thing to do without!

  9. Ah, when we moved into our new house, we didn't have internet for 2 days. I seriously thought I was going to go insane.

    We do the same thing with IMDB...but we usually guess who it is, and then check after the movie. Kind of like a contest.

  10. I am an imdb-a-holic too! I pride myself with answering everyone's who's that questions. If they only knew imdb was the real genius! If you have a Panera anywhere near you they should have free wifi, but I am guessing you have solved the internet problem by now.

  11. Haha, I would die without the internet! I always look up movies on IMDB and use Google maps too! I'm also addicted to blogs and webcomics, but I haven't caught the Twitter bug yet (I have an account, but I'm not obsessed.)


I love hearing from other readers! Share your thoughts and chime in!
