Not Happy, Jan.

It's official: the internet at home has left the building.

I arrived home from work yesterday, only to find that the internet was down. We called the company, I frantically texted people, and I tried all sorts of techniques to get it back again, but it's gone. Looks like our combined router/modem has shit itself, and so we're left with no net.

It's incredible realising how much you depend on the internet when it's not working. Even the mundane things like checking my blog comments, or talking to Jason on MSN: I missed them so much last night. I was also a fair bit panicky, because all of the communication between schools and agencies happens through email.

(Speaking of which, oh gmail, how I miss you! We've only known each other a short while, and I'm already attached to you. We'll be together again soon, I hope.)

I'm going to leave you today with one final request - can you please start doing the "Bring-internet-back-from-the-dead" dance as soon as possible. What, you don't know that one? Bah, of course you do. It's like your standard rain dance, only much, much funkier. And with added yodelling.

I'm hoping for a miracle, folks.

I don't know what I would do without the internet, I basically live off of it. Hope it comes back soon!

I always try to steal wireless when this happens. Can you do the same?

Hello, new blog friend! I think your blog is so, so pretty.

I'm addicted to gmail. Absolutely addicted. I've been using it since 2004, and I love it more than ever. I can't even remember what plain ol' e-mail was like before chatting and quick contacts and statuses and labels.

*Dancing as I'm typing*
Good luck!!

Katie said...

That would be difficult because it means you can't talk to J! I hope it gets fixed soon - it's the worst timing ever for it to die!

mooiness said...

I'll do the rain dance and throw in an exhortation as well - modem demons, BE GONE!

But yeah, don't you feel so naked without the net?

Siany said...

Ah yes! I know that dance!

And if doing the dance to bring your OWN internet back up, the dance also involves alot of swearing and throwing things at the pc.

*dance dance*

No Internet!?!?!

I am way to addicted to survive that. I feel your pain. Bring back the Internet dance will commence immediately.

And can't you access gmail from anywhere?

Laurel said...

If AS could come fix your internet in one evening, I would totally send him over there!

Kristabella said...

I think back and wonder how I managed without a computer at home for so many years.

I will send out the best "bring back the internet to Aly" vibes that I can!

Lia said...

I hope it all gets sorted out - no communication is a pain!

Nathan Pralle said...

Aw....that sucks! I feel so...disconnected...when I don't have my 'net. Except when I'm on holiday. Then the 'net can go take a flying leap. Well....only for a few days. Then I want my email, dammit. :)

Katie said...

Oh hon, I will dance my pants off hoping that your internet comes back soon!

Michelle & the City said...
