How The Net Won Me Over (Again)

I had once pledged of staying away from the net. And was very successful at it. And as time went by, the late nights were gone. No more sitting in a leather chair staring at pixels all over the screen. It was to bed by 9 PM, up by 0430 hrs. Hit the gym, work, head back home, catch up on some reading, cooking and lights off.

Brilliant! The halo around my head was back.

Till disaster struck.

I decided to take my outdoor-si-ness and fat burning measures to a different level and decided to wash my car, inside out in the summer heat. That too without a cap. For a good 3 hours. After which for a whole week I ended up with a high body temperature (ok, I am hot, but this was different) and a splitting headache which wouldnt stop. So much that I had to take a few days off work and stay home. No TV, no internet. I was driven crazy by the end of this week.

Then today as I was home, someone knocks on my door. Its the cable guy.

He: "Are you Mr. Trinidad?"
Me: "Nope. But I think he lived here before me."
He: "Oh, so he left and didnt disconnect his cable. You have been enjoying free cable and internet for 4 months?"
Me: "Huh... you mean all this time, I had cable, no wait, FREE cable, and I didnt use it?"
He: "Well, I am here to disconnect it. But before I do, I wanna ask you if you want the connection since its already there...."

So now I am back on the WWW. There are some signs which I shouldn't ignore. Falling ill, cable guy showing up without me asking him.... God wants me to have access to the web! And He wants you guys to suffer reading my blog.

try opening the cupboard or somethin and maybe you'd find some free booze (i hope you are still off booze) and that would be like rubbing salt on the wound man :)

#Bordi: Man, if only it was a cable girl....

#Anjali: Then perhaps it has to do with weight. Maybe I need to gain more fat (like someone I know) and retain more fluid in the body. U know what I am talking about.... :P

#Yvy: Sure... no pain, no gain!

#Idea: thank you babeh!
