So we are between Internet services; we don’t have any service at home! I am not sure how I am going to survive this “no-internet” situation! What am I going to do? How am I going to function? I am sure, all those internet users reading this blog will agree that I am certainly not overreacting here! (Do not go on the exclamation marks after every sentence; I need some support here!) I think they should come up with some “self -help” books to deal with a crisis like this one! During this “sabbatical” from the “cyberspace”, wonder what are my days going to like, especially the coming Sat and Sun!
Thinking of activities I can possibly do as I sit in my almost empty (abandoned-like) office floor, when the rest of the world is enjoying their Fri night after a long week, like a herd let loose!
So coming back to the one who is still tied to her office chair and laptop, thinking hard about my “to-do” list, this is what comes to my mind as I type : reading some stuff that I have been planning to, and haven’t been able to yet, for a long time/ getting up early to watch the sun rise from my window, then sipping tea till the sun warms up for his day/ spending some time with my roomie / weather permitting, taking a walk outside / cooking something yummy to go with the Yellow Tail gifted by a very dear friend (currently on vacation on the west coast!) / some PR phone calls to family – friends/ exercise-meditation / introspection and contemplation …
Hmmm.. that’s quite a list there, eh?
Wow! Up until now I knew how much change Internet has brought in our lives. Didn’t realize how much change, even its absence, can bring to us!!!
Heil Internet! LOL!

Television reduced social interaction. Internet increased such interaction with e-mails, chats and blogs. However, quality time spent with a real person, face to face, is far more nourishing for the soul.
An Internet outage gives you a wonderful opportunity to be with yourself.. and contemplate.. and make some tea for yourself, stirring it slowly and savoring every sip in special cups sitting next to a window 🙂
That is so true. I did make some tea and sipped it sitting by my window, as the world went past!
