The internet went out for a little while tonight…, and I find it somewhat hilarious that it was sort of a huge deal for the others in the house, and I almost couldn’t have cared less. I did, after all, live several months wihout internet at home, both in the US and in Japan, and I even spent some months without cell service or phone service of any kind either… I kind if enjoyed the certainty of quiet that it allowed. Knowing that no call or text or e-mail would arrive on any device whenever I was at home, was like breathing freely in a whole new way. And all the important people knew my situation, so they knew to show up at my door if they wanted anything immediate, or to plan enough ahead to tell me to go check something at a certain time, using the WiFi down the road.
I almost miss that. I certainly miss the reliability of work and income I’d had at the time. 😛 But that’s not really the point here, now, is it?
