You know that your Internet addiction is bad when your modem stops working and your brow develops a bead of sweat, your stomach fills with fluttering butterflies, and your brain cannot form thoughts.
Well actually, my brain could form thoughts…like, “I NEED to check my email.” “Twitter??? What am I missing?” “I wonder if she friended me back on Facebook?” “How many subscribers have I lost today?”….and on and on and on and on.
Thursday evening, after mentally planning my evening filled with Twitter, Google Reader, and StumbleUpon, my Internet DIED. No amount of troubleshooting could fix the modem or the connection or whatever the heck was wrong.
Friday morning I nearly pulled out every strand of hair, trying to get my Internet to just please oh please, just for one minute, I’ll never ask for anything again, oh please just work, I’m dying here, DYING, PLEASE WORK.
But no. The Internet had died.
There was one good thing that came out of my Internet exile, and that was a clean house.
Let me tell you, clean houses are HIGHLY overrated. Clean houses with working modems are far more enjoyable.
