I was watching cable TV, but switched to DVD for a while. Then, when I went back to TV, NOTHING was there!. I reset the box, but it couldn’t get a signal!

At that point, I figured I’d get online… only … it was … HORRIBLE!!!


The withdrawal pains were terrible! I SUFFERRED! GREATLY!!!


Oh, the AGONY!!!

… but I got better.

I’m undergoing psychiatric therapy. And my feet and hands are bandaged up from kicking and pounding the floor during the tantrum….

I’ve long since learned that anything I send to you can, and probably will, be held against me.

    Sure. Make fun of someone’s suffering. I know where you live: Let’s see how YOU deal with no cable and no Internet! It’ll be worse for you- NO BLOG!

    My website has been down thanks to a freaky kernel or Colonel or something like that. It’s killing me. I feel so lost.

    However, I must commend you on your KICK ASS RSS feed. It shows me the FULL post and I love you for that. Meanwhile, I’m e-mailing about 20 other people telling them to get on the XML bandwagon. YOU ROCK! *smooch!*

    I have the exact same reaction when the power goes out. No TV, no Computer, no Nintendo… thank god I have a gameboy, or I might have been committed a long time ago! 🙂

    electricity and dsl are like — oxygen. i can go a little while, but after too long, i’d probably just die. or just wish i was dead. i have no clue what i’d do without the internet, for any length of time. ok, i have to stop thinking about that now. eeeeeeeee.

    Ditto what theresa said. I’d never survive without my Visor. Now I just need to get wireless. 😉
