the unthinkable has happened. my DSL is dead.
let me make sure the gravity of the situation is fully appreciated because this is no light matter.
my DSL is dead.
due to unfortunately circumstances beyond my control, my DSL is dead and i don’t really want to talk about the huge nightmare that is called my life without broadband.
thoughts like, “wow, i can’t leave work now, i won’t be able to connect to the internet!” occur in my head and then i am saddened that the quality of my life seems to be directly related to the speed of my internet connection…which, by the way, is no way true.
i do have other things to do in my life…really, i do.
but for some unthinkable reason, all i can really concentrate on at the moment is the lack of DSL at my apartment. so, i’ve resorted to staying out late at my favorite tapioca express location that offers free wireless internet and i’m doing the sorts of things that one does with a fast internet connection: blogging.
because, you know, you NEED a really fast internet connection to blog.
and, you know, you NEED a really fast internet connection to IM…of course, no one is responding to my IMs anyway, so i guess it doesn’t REALLY matter…but somehow, i am comforted by the fact that i can browse the web really fast if i wanted to. or i can download things really fast, if i were so inclined.
i guess it’s really the comfort of knowing that it is there more than anything else.
go figure. oh well, tapioca express is closing soon so i’ll have to venture out and go home i guess…to the dark ages…but i will resist the temptation to dial up with my backup internet connection. because i liken using a modem to dialing up as eating your food without your hands: you could do it, and it technically would work, but it’s just barbaric.
