::Loss of Connectivity::

Onesome: Loss– of appetite? Have you ever been invited to an event where the food just was too terrible to even pretend to like? What was your solution? …I mean, besides holding out for a burger on the way home <g>!

Of course. This is a regular occurrence for an Atlanta native who hates fried chicken. The "solution" is to claim not to be hungry, or in extreme cases to be "a little under the weather", and fill up on iced tea, the other staple of southern food.

Of course, most southerners don’t know when to stop adding sugar to iced tea, but don’t get me started on that.

Twosome: of– the last three days, we’ve lost Net access in Central CaliLand most of the time. I’m thinking it has to do with the lack of a State budget out here. Do you have long periods of disconnect where you are?

Normally, no. I live almost within sight of the state Capitol building and Turner Field, and the state patrol and national guard headquarters is just as close in the other direction. When the neighborhood loses a utility, they notice pretty quick. But just a couple of weeks ago, I lost phone service for about a week — and that took my DSL with it. Bummer, dude.

Threesome: Connectivity:–, addiction or necessity? Is the Net essential to your daily activities (yes, work counts!)? …or would you even notice if someone cut the wire?

I suppose it’s more of a luxury for me. For my wife, it’s a necessity, between the work she brings home and the online classes she took to achieve her Specialists’ degree.
