My internet has been a bit wonky the last couple of days, cutting in and out, and I couldn't access it at all today until this evening. Sometimes I seriously think I'd be able to take the news that the room I'm in is running out of oxygen and I'll soon suffocate better than someone telling me that I'll be without internet access for an indefinite period of time.
I guess it's not really being without the internet as much as it is not knowing *why* you can't connect and when you'll be able to connect again. It's just such a pain in the ass not knowing what's wrong. Is it the router, modem, computer, service provider...? There are just too many variables... and calling tech support is not fun. Ever.
I assume the problem is on their end because here I am... and I haven't changed anything or done anything differently. It had me wondering if it had anything to do with my Wii though, since it's recently been hooked up. I suppose it was just a coincidence though. The important thing is that you never leave me again, internet!
New Year's Eve was rather uneventful. I stayed in all day and simultaneously watched the ball drop on one tv and the New Years Celebration in my Animal Crossing video game on another, lol. New Year's Day was a little more fun (aside from being woken up from the fire alarm, which proceeded to randomly go off many times during the morning/afternoon until my dad figured how to disconnect it *lolz* most awful sound ever). We went out to dinner with my sister and her family, then back to their house to play with their Wii. We had fun taking turns playing games and laughed as they all made their Mii's. It's funny how they really can look like the person. The Wii really is awesome and brings people in that wouldn't even normally play video games. Everyone from my nephew (22) to my mother (65) was playing, laughing, and having fun.
