Around 10:30am yesterday, my internet went down. Thought that it was just the router playing up, so we reset it, and nothing happened.
This went on for 12 hours.
12 hours without internet. I will admit, I freaked. Not because I couldn’t live without the internet1. But because I had stuff that I needed to do and for 12 hours I couldn’t. I had my blog work to do and I couldn’t catch up. Thank goodness I have my iPod, so I wasn’t completely devoid of musical goodness. When it finally came back up, I was too tired to do much of anything. So I did a couple of quests on Atlantica Online and just went to bed.
So other than panicking, what else did I do for those 12 hours of sans internet? Other than the normal parental stuffs, I played a game that I haven’t played in years. Zelda fans, remember Majora’s Mask? the dorky half hates this game. In fact, it’s one of the only 2 Zelda games he’s never finished (Twilight Princess being the other–dunno why he never finished it). But I happen to like this one, even if the 3-day time limit was annoying. I played for a little more after the internet came back up, and it brought back a lot of nostalgia.
Sometimes a small break from the net makes you think of stuff. Yes, I probably would have lost a lot of money had it not come back up before Monday, but you get to do stuff that you haven’t done in a while. With that being said, since Rydia’s asleep, I’m going to play some more Majora’s Mask.
