Just survived 3 days without phone, internet or television. They're all through my cable company. But one of my neighbors moved last weekend and the cable company turned off service to the wrong house -- my house! Took the nincompoops 3 days to figure out the problem, and I had to be here the whole time while they were running back and forth.
So, what would you do if you had 3 days without phone, internet or TV? My dogs are pooped from all the walks and my house has never been cleaner!
i could definitely get along without tv, but would have to go get a per use phone and use the internet at the library or coffeeshop because i need to stay connected or i would have problems.
Exercise, cook, go swimming, eat, cook, exercise, spend time with my kid eating, swimming, walking, cooking, cleaning... wait, I already do that.
I would spend 3 days wondering what the rest of the world is doing.
Wow, that's tough. 3 DAYS!! I've had to go w/out electricity on a few occasions which lasted for upwards of 20 hours and that alone was torture. 3 days w/out internet connectivity would seriously disable me. I suppose I would go ahead and take my laptop to the local coffee shop w/ wifi and stay there all day. And, in the evenings, would clean clean clean as well.
I would write Hubs or draw mostly. If not, I would go out and do stuff, go window shopping or if I needed a computer go to the library. I have an ok answer for everything, when I was younger I used to go to a nice private lake to a cottage my grandmother owns, it has no phone, used to have tv bunny ears for 6 channels(not anymore thanks to digital...) and no internet at all. We played lots of board games, went swimming, and used to do craft-type things.
I did it back in July. 7 days would you believe
Loved it too. I was on a rock in the atlantic. Was restful, peaceful - heavenly.
Unfortunately the rock was more a home to a million shitty seagulls than it was for folks but I bore up well. I'm a top dodger me
If it was home - read. Watch some DVDs I keep meaning to sit and enjoy. String more than I have been of late. Probably take a much intended walk up to my cemetary and take some photographs maybe.
I have a couple books I've been meaning to get around to....
When we moved, we went without all three for a week, until the cable company could get here...ugh...
We watched a ton of movies during the early evening hours that we are usually on the computer, and talked about everything under the sun, then hubby Tom went to bed early, and I took advantage of the opportunity and read a LOT of books, lol...
My boys mainly watched movies, over and over...hahaha. But they're older--if they were young'uns, I would've sent them outside to play, but kids in their 20's don't tend to do that very often anymore, lol...
A great excuse to spend time outside. Once out there, you'd find plenty to do.
I would go out exploring, read, write, attempt to work on my back office which hopelessly needs clearing out, listen to music, swim... I wondered where you were. glad to see you back.
When my laptop crashed, I spent a lot of time shredding loads of old documents!
I'd catch up on some sleep, because while I'm here I never sleep much!
Drive over to my sister's house. She's has 5 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms!
I would catch up on my reading and painting. I love to do both but with so many distractions I rarely get around to do either. The peace and quiet would be welcomed.
I'd have parties with my friends and family and watch CD's with my hunny, maybe do some painting or writing and a lot of walking the dogs.
Too funny, Sandra! And Ralwus, somehow I knew your answer would involve a party!
spend time with my two daughters playing and spend time with the wife. I work alot
Reading would be my first choice then I might think of paying some visits too...
1) Write in my journal.
2) Ride my bike.
3) Do homework/study.
4) Eat food. Lots.
5) Go to the gym.
6) Hang out with friends/family.
Dang computer runs so slow sometimes that wouldn't bother me too much. I unplugged the phone anyway, got tired of the thing ringing. Without the tv I guess I could catch up on some long overdue reading. Been cleaning the house like crazy the last few days getting ready for new grand daughter due in three weeks.

When/where do you spend the most time on the internet? What days?Some claim that they never do it at work, some while in the tub, some do it while everyone is asleep and no one knows, others spend their whole Saturday staring at the screen (oooh eye pain)...and some do while driving to...

When I was in high school, the expansion for World of Warcraft, Burning Crusade was released. I stayed up for 7 days without sleep...it was pretty insane. Most people can't go one day, but red bulls+monster can defy that. I am also thinking of trying it again and blogging about...
