We've been without our Internet connection for the better part of two days. Two very long, excruciating days. It's pathetic how reliant we are on the damn thing. I tried to kill time by doing my bee blocks but realised some of the instructions were online so that put a stop to that.
And we're leaving for NYC tonight to attend a David Mitchell book party tomorrow, so I wanted to check train schedules, weather forecast, plan our itinerary for Saturday etc... couldn't do that either. Bleurgh.
So I busied myself with baking and laundry... and playing solitaire on the computer because I DIDN'T HAVE INTERNET SO THAT'S ALL IT'S GOOD FOR. That and doubling as a rather large paperweight.
And then I spied the little Nutella packet my husband's co-worker gave him.
That lasted all of 30 seconds.
But the cable guy came (We were told between 8 and 12... guess what time he showed up? 12:05pm. Nicely done.) today and things are working again. It rained all day Wednesday and apparently some water got into the cables blah blah. He climbed on a frighteningly tall ladder, and fixed it. If he hadn't shown up late and wasted my morning, I'd have offered to name my firstborn after him. Tough luck, dude.
Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go stare lovingly at the modem.
