Rainy Days Are Here

It's rained non-stop all day. I hate having to go to work on rainy days to begin with, it doesn't help that I am trying to force myself to take the subway and be a fiscally responsible adult by doing so (though I'm doing so only because I blew my budget drunken book shopping.) I hate that the bottom of my pants are wet, I hate fighting umbrella-armed crowds, I hate rush hour subway.

I was going to write an exciting post all about Thomas King's The Truth About Stories, but instead I watched Grey's Antomy, Brothers & Sisters and Bones and now I am going to go read some Kathy Reichs because on rainy days all I want to do is nest myself in my bed and enjoy. Which would be easier if I didn't have to be in a PC Bang for internet access.

A coworker may give me a TV at the end of June, so I'm going to wait until then to think about getting internet. In general, not having it at home forces me to do more interesting things with my time, like read. And there are always DVDs for the days I need to veg.

Also, I'm thinking of planning a trip soon... I guess I'd like to have the Internet around for that.

How are you surviving with no internet? Are your trying to live like a pilgrim?

I tried reading Kath Reichs but barely made it past a few chapters. I think i like the TV version of Bones too much.
