I was Internet less for two days.
I remember a time when I was Internetless, back before it was invented, or at least, readily available in homes to those not involved in Sputnik.
yeah, they were great, but I also spent a hell of a lot of time doing sucky things that now, thanks to the Internet, I no longer have to do, like.....
Visiting the bank.
I hate everything about the Bank, which Bank? All banks.
Our local bank relocated to across the road, because that's what we do in the Dilly.
Their new carpet, although cleaner, Is the same shitty shade of bank navy, only now it smells like stale marijuana and wet cat. I kid you not, Perhaps it's made of hemp? Perhaps 148 billion dollars profit a year is not enough?
Either way it freaking stinks and I hate it.
I usually shop online, fortnightly, and only visit the shop to top up on perishables or op shop.
I do the rest of it online.
The post office.
Nobody likes the post office OK? Even people who work in the post office hate the post office.
You can tell by there constant not so fucking cheery demeanor.
It's initials are not P.O for nothing.
I also found there were other pit falls of being Internetless
@ 3G Don't.Start.me.
@ Guitar tabs are not readily available
@ There is nobody to read my witty one liners... They sit in my brain unappreciated like tiny little golden brain turds.
@ No Music downloads, I hear a song I like I want it now damn it.
@ The mental strain of calculating just how many emails were going to accumulate.
@ The lack of blog reading
@ Having to rely on the news to know if Armageddon has begun.
@ Not being able to remove my trading post ad in a timely fashion. It took every ounce of my strength not to answer the phone with SOLD FUCKBAG.
@ Relying on the phone to communicate, on hold music sucks sack.
@ Lack of Google.... How the hell did I find things I needed before google? No....I don't know where the fucking phone book is, who uses the phone book any more? Do they even still make phone books? I couldn't even google it to find out!
@ Delayed twitter stream... Bravo 3G, Bravo. I gave up.
@ Having to actually do things to keep my brain stimulated that involved actually doing things.
I have to stop... My Internet is back on.
If the Internet were to disappear tomorrow, what would you miss the most?
