I've been missing in action online.
No internet at home;
No access to *dare I say it* facebook at work,
Just email, and even then just for a few minutes before work.

Hmm.. life without the internet is strange. But strangely after 2 months 'unwired' I don't really miss it.

Looking back;
It is surprising how much time I spent in front of the monitor, and to create what??
A virtual life revolving around blogging, and reading other people's blogs. Reading the news. Looking at people's photos, artworks, creations.
I guess for that amount of time, I haven't anything to show for it now. Not like a written manuscript, or a creation of my own.

Intangible.
That's the word I'm looking for.
The internet in intangible.

Still, the useful aspects of the net are regrettable- bus timetables, internet banking, *rosters for my shifts at work*!

The internet does have it's place.
