Apparently it has happened. I am a blog addict. We arrived here in Boston for the next two nights and the first thing I did when we entered our room was to whip out the laptop and try to hook up to the Internet.
Well, it was complicated. Something with an ethernet cable that's supposed to plug into the phone and who knows what. And it didn't work. So I actually read the instructions and started over again. Still no connection. So I tried wireless. Plenty of networks in range, but couldn't get in.
So I gave in and called the 800 number the hotel provided and after walking me through a number of things the nice man who was helping me decided the connection in the room is faulty. I could feel the panic welling up inside me. "But I have to BLOG tonight!" And then he said the most beautiful words: "Don't worry, you can access free wireless internet in the main lobby."
So here I am sitting in the main lobby in front of a nice gas fireplace blogging away.
But what does this say about my mental state? All I could think was "But it's NaBloPoMo! I MUST BLOG TONIGHT!" Here I am in Boston, steps from the Faneuil Hall area and all the bars and restaurants, and the only thing I'm concerned about is blogging!
I think it's time I participated in my life. So I'm going to end this quickly with a haiku and get on out there to The Black Rose!
Arrived in Boston
Ethernet isn't working
How can I get on?
