I'm Thankful #7 - The Internet

Again, this might be a strange thing to be thankful for, but some people think I'm strange, so ... I'm thankful for the Internet. Without it, I wouldn't have this here blog. Or 5 e-mail addresses. I wouldn't know what my friends are doing right.this.second. I wouldn't have access to photos like the one to the left and you, well, you wouldn't be able to see all my family pictures here.

I wouldn't know how to look up a phone number or an address (map? phone book? wha?). I wouldn't know what time a movie was playing or what that bump on BB's finger meant.

I wouldn't be going to grad school. I wouldn't have been a Bzz Agent. I wouldn't play Fantasy Football. Gasp! I wouldn't have access to Etsy! Or eBay!

This world would be a very, very, very different place without the Internet. Yes, siree.

As much as I complain about what a time-suck the Internet can be, all it takes is a little power outage or lack of cell service and I'm hyperventilating. Remember when we only had three TV channels?

Three channels and a black and white Fox that showed local programming!

You need to be back on the Twitter.
