Yes, I have had dial up forever (9 years). Yes, I have been happy with it. Yes, I am one of the four people left on the face of this earth with dial up. Yes, I had been happy to only spend $10 per month on the internet. Yes, the whole world made fun of me. Yes, I was OK with that.
Then my internet provider (my previous employer) said they were no longer offerering dial-up (what??? why not???). I'd have to find a new provider, they said. Huh??
So here I am with high(er) speed internet from Sympatico. You can actually now call our house and not get a busy signal while we are on the computer. Our kids can now play webkinz at home.
OK, I'll admit that I had been thinking of getting high speed even before we moved. Breaking down and paying the higher fees. Secretly planning my switch. And I am loving my new wireless high(er) speed internet.
Yesterday morning I spent 45 minutes on Facebook. Time I should have spent unpacking those last boxes. Now tell me again what's so great about high speed? :)
PS: Now that I have high speed, I was all set to post some great pics. Guess what??? Now our digital camera is BROKEN. *sigh*
