Still have no Internet, so excuse (again) the brevity of this post.
Yesterday, a friend suggested that perhaps my loss of connection was God’s response to my recent post about unplugging. Well, I can now say with some certainty that I would have a truly hard time with friendship if I didn’t have technology. I got a lot done yesterday, but most of it was of the lonely let-me-clean-my-house-and-pay-bills variety. I even opened some tax forms. That’s how little there was to do. So, conclusion: Without technology I would be very productive, and spend lots of time with the hubby, but friendships would be tough.
Also, I stand by what I said yesterday. Friendliness is at its peak in a snowstorm. I’ve never seen so many people out chatting in the streets. No cars, just people and shovels. Everyone was suddenly best friends with her neighbors. (Whether this was due to the aforementioned loss of technology, and thus they had no one else to talk to, is not clear.)
Thanks for your patience the last two days as I’ve blogged from my phone. Friday we’ll be back to regularly scheduled programming.
For now, what did your snow day look like, if you were so lucky? And did you notice extra-friendliness in the face of blizzard 2011?
