My internet connection keeps going sour (blast Comcast). Gotta try to get a post up before it goes out again. Guess I'm about to embark on the usual customer service shuffle. I've had problems off and on for awhile. It's not unusual to have inferior quality in my neck of the woods-we're not in a priority service area.
I've gotten so accustomed to being connected that I feel a little bit lost when the connection goes down for any length of time. I like being able to look up the meaning of obscure words at 3:00 am. I enjoy setting off on an adventure through arcane historical detail just for the heck of it, without putting on my shoes or digging out my library card. And, especially, since this is a year without travel in our household, I like being able to take off on flights of fancy to Europe or the Caribbean to dream about my next vacation.
