Oh Internet...

After spending most of yesterday without a splash of the Net to play around in, I realized just how much my love affair with the interwebs has grown over the last few years.

Oh, Internet.  How I love you...let me count the ways:

1)  A sudden unfulfilled urge to blog slips by without you, Internet.

2)  Without you at my fingertips, I'm forced to download, install, and figure out apps on my phone - fun, but I prefer you in full interactive form with all your bells and whistles.

3)  Without you, I'm almost driven to the brink of madness as I try to cope with Auto-fill on my phone....who, quite clearly, has a very different vocabulary.

4)  You bring me music to groove/sing/write to, Firefly, Dancing With the Stars, beautifully blogged posts to read, gorgeous bits to look upon - a la Pinterest, sunshine, rainbows, glitter, oh my!

5)  You have Facebook, Twitter, iTunes, Netflix, Hulu, NaNoWriMo, Amazon, Etsy, Write on Edge (my son is the one who pointed 'that writing prompt thing' out! :>), Flickr, and more email accounts than I care to count.

6)  You have the essential parenting resource:  Google.

7)  And most important, Internet, you have my friends tucked in, around, and about your interwebs.

While I may turn you off at times, please don't ever leave my demanding fingertips again.

Thank you, ever so much!


  1. Popping in from WOE weekend linky.
    Ah, the net has become indispensable... one cannot do without its many resources...
    I loved the allusion to Barrett Browning's poem... classic!

  2. I work 10 hr shifts and am allowed to play online. I have no idea what I would do with out it. I can only read for so long in the middle of the night.

  3. I love her, too. Very very much. :)
    Came from the Write on Edge linkup.

  4. I don't realize how much I miss it until it's gone! This summer, our phone AND internet were knocked out by lightning for 4 days... oh dear. I was a mess. I'm all for unplugging and not LITERALLY be online 24/7 but man... when Dave was working nights and there was nothing on TV... a little Twitter would've been nice. My cell phone's a dinosaur and doesn't even know what internet is! Talk about withdrawal!

    Thanks for linking up for #SundayFunday! I'm so glad that it worked for you the FIRST TIME! YAY!

  5. Oh boy I understand it all especially Google what did I do before Google I really don't know LOL

  6. I'm WITH yooooooooooooooo! SISTA friend - WHO knew!!!??? So true, friend, SO TRUE!
