I actually called Benton "civilization" this week. I brought my laptop with me so that I could get online for a few glorious seconds to look for a job and it had been an eternity since I could do anything larger than the tiny, slow window on my iPhone. To be sitting here, in front of my laptop, in my new home using the real world wide web makes me nearly giddy with connectivity.
Cell phone reception here is crap, usable, but not reliable, and I get voicemails on a serious time delay. And it's just right here, in this house. When I go to town (yes, I said it), cell reception is great. After a glorious visit to the phone company, I now have a landline for local calls AND DSL. Hallelujah! Praise Jesus and the phone company, prayers have been answered! I would say I'm not serious, but I totally am. I knew I would survive after the DirecTV guy came, 6 hours late but who really cares? I have eleventy billion channels, DVR, and now an internet connection.
I think I'll survive, even here in the wilds.
Where am I?
Come on over to the new blog for more...it's in the building stages still but I'll be posting there from now on.
Goodbye, Living in a Material World. Hello, www.read-write-rewrite-repeat.com. COME SEE ME!
