Long lost blogger

I know, I know, everyone can sigh a breath of relief...I am finally writing another blog. It's been a while and I feel like I'm in the stone ages again. It's hard to remember a time without the internet and email. It's crazy! Now that I don't have easy access to it, I definitely crave it. I think I'm going through withdrawal. It all started when I had to go from fast easy internet service at work to dial up at home. As if that weren't bad enough, I had to cancel at home and the place I'm working now has computers from the 1980's. No joke! Complete with the green screens. If you tried to connect them to the web in any way, they would internally combust! So, I have to settle for my short bouts here and there at the library and friends' places. This is how bad it's gotten...the other day I had to wait in line for access. I sat, impatiently, waiting for the next computer to free up. I understandibly got perterbed at the 8 year old playing games on the McDonald's website. Come on! I have emails to read! Let's move it! But you know it's bad and you really need help when you scowl at the middle schooler on a wetlands website doing research for school. Screw the wetlands! I need to check my email! Okay, it wasn't that bad, but I was very happy when the middle schooler left. I hope she gets a good grade on that paper. But what the heck!? Why doesn't she have internet at home like every other child in the USA?!
