Alternatively titled as “the 3 week saga”. Well as you all know that for three weeks I couldn’t get online from home as I had had issues with first my hard drive and then the motherboard of my 3.7 year old pc. With all the hassle and repair and also the fact that here was an opportunity to give it off and get a new laptop, I chose to wait for the beginning of the month and the hike in salary that was to kick in and get a new computer. So that also meant that I had 3 weeks of boredom to face without being able to listen to my vast collection of songs (my old stereo died a couple of years ago and I survive on mp3s), my movies and series that I download and no internet.
No internet! That was a situation that faced me for the first time in 3.7 years and it wasn’t a pleasant one. I was so used to it. Anyway I was bored and i needed to fill my free time with something to do. I went out with friends a couple of weekends. I read a lot of books that were engrossing. I spent a lot of time flipping through channels and watching stuff that I wouldn’t watch usually. Cooking shows for example. Saw a few movies and some tv series. Slept a lot. And I spent a lot of evenings after work in coffeeshops. I played Brickbreaker on my Blackberry so much that I seriously considered turning pro……if they did indeed have a Brickbreaker tour, I would be the Tiger Woods of the game! Minus the bimbos! Ok, I lie I would be neck deep in bimbos!
I chatted a lot using the gtalk software on my BlackBerry. I tossed and turned on my bed a lot as I was bored and spent intervals of starring at the ceiling for a couple of hours at a time. But now i am back and I am eager to be entertained.
