Just what happens when you are no longer connected? We have gotten so used to Ipods, notebooks, PC’s, Blackberry’s, and Droids that we forget we used to pick up a phone that was connected by a spiral wire…to the wall of all things. There were no instant messages, no emails, certainly no U-tube, Facebook or MySpace. We connected by actually seeing other people. By opening our mouths and speaking…with no need for spell check.
That said…I have lost use of my beloved Netbook. I love the thing. It sits by my giant chair where I spend most of my time making tiny little knots otherwise known as tatting. For some reason it is on the snafu. No ability to connect wirelessly to the internet means I cannot check my email every 20 minutes, I cannot play Farmville, and I cannot add things to my Blog. Ugh! How did we ever survive before this? How did we communicate that we were laughing before “LOL”?
It is a quandary I will ponder as I drive to Best Buy tomorrow to find an adequate Geek in the Geek Squad to repair my baby.
