The Day the Internet Came to Town

It happened! It happened! A short 46 days later and I have the internet!  I’m not going to elaborate on how this has been the biggest pain in the arse I’ve ever dealt with because a) it’s really boring and makes me appear slightly whiney and b) frankly I don’t care anymore because I now have the internet! To be quite honest, the wait has sort of been like every marathon I have ever ran.  The entire time I am thinking how miserable I am and then once I cross that finish line and they give me a medal and a quarter of a bagel and I forget all of the pain and complaints.  Well this is me, forgetting about all of the mornings spent at McDonald’s with the kids who are skipping school trying to use their slower-than-my-parents old dial up.  Also forgetting all of my attempts at making small talk with my neighbours trying to extract information that could help me guess their internet passwords.  For days weeks I felt like Gilligan and his feeble attempts at making coconut radios to access the outside world except I wasn’t a Cub Scout leader long enough to learn that badge.

Like an addict who really wasn’t committed to rehab I went a bit berserk once the modem arrived.  Rob showed up at home to find not my iMac, MacBook Air, iPhone, NookColor, T-Hub and iPod touch all up and running and connected to either my blog, facebook, iTunes, facebook again and numerous cooking blogs … oh, and I might’ve been Skyping …
