Let's hope this lasts.
Lessons learnt yesterday;
#1: Waking up to find your Internet connection is down is like waking up into a nightmare. Bizarre feeling.
#2: Waiting on hold for thirty minutes while being told all the time that you are first in the queue is also bizarre.
#3: There is no life without the Internet. It is life support.
#4: Computers without Internet just do not seem right.
#5: When travelling to or from cricket, make sure you observe public transport. This way, you may catch a bus to the 'Gabba rather than walking across Brisbane from the railway station.
#6: Don't tie up shoes too tight, especially when you plan on walking - or might end up walking, if you are unobservant (see #5). Should your right shoe be done up too tight, you will get a pesky blister. In this case, walking up and down stairs at the stadium will not be fun. Make sure you find public transportation for the return journey.
#7: If the cricket might be rained out, bring something to do. It's not easy to fall asleep on stadium seats.
#8: Life without the Internet is torture.
#9: Life without the Internet is torture.
#10: Life without the Internet is torture.
#11: Do not be fooled: there is precious little to do outside of the Internet world.
#12: Books are good, though. If Internet is dead, read lots of books. Maybe make an international phone call and hope it does not kill your bill.
#13: Should the aforemtnioned international phone call kill your bill, resist the urge to kill something else.
#14: Life without the Internet is torture.
#15: Life without the Internet is torture.
#16: Life without the Internet is torture.
#17: Do not try to figure out how Axver survived fifteen years of his life without the Internet.
Yesterday, in other words, was bad. No Internet, no cricket, and just to top it off, a lovely blister. But now my Internet is back, hopefully for good, and I am meeting bono_man today. Shoudl be fun. We plan on playing U2 loud. That's how you spend a Saturday!
