Back Online Limerick and Wine. . .er, Whine

On Friday the unthinkable happened. My internet server, Bellsouth, experienced an extended outage and internet access became impossible for—gulp!—four solid days. I could access neither my blog, email accounts nor Facebook. Due to appointments and such, a visit to the library or a friend’s house to borrow a working computer was out of the question.
So how did this internet junkie deal with being severed from her technological window to the world? I whined a lot and. . .er. . .wined, because let’s face it, no internet! Hey, don’t judge me. I didn’t just sit around and swig from a wineglass, you know. I also ate chocolate and watched recorded episodes of the new Hawaii Five-O; and if you’ve ever seen Alex O’Loughlin shirtless you won’t ask why Five-O is my new Must-Not-Miss. Actually, now that I think about it, losing the internet wasn’t all bad. Just saying.
How do you cope with internet outages? Do you grumble, suffer in silence, or haunt the local internet cafes?
