I use to love to talk on the phone and watch television. Of course that was before I got the Internet. Now, I could care less if I talk on the phone (if it isn't business related), and we don't even have cable so we get zero channels on our TV. No phone and TV is just fine with me, but if I had to go without the Internet for just one day...OMG, no!

I get connected to people and they connect with me via the Internet. I get all of my news both local and worldwide from the Internet. Of course, I get all my Hollywood gossip there too. The phone and television are previous distractions, but the Internet has to be apart of my life and I consider it a friend.  

I find my recipes, research, restaurant reviews, vacation packages, pay my bills, do my banking, find my landscaper, plumber, electrician, and look for my doctor and dentist on the Internet. Additionally, it's on the Internet we have found our homes, keep track of the weather, look for free entertainment, and see what the traffic is like.

I don't have to eat out, go bowling, swimming, golfing, movies, or talk every day to everyone I know on the phone. Just give me my Internet and I will be just fine. I don't like to say addicted, but I don't think I can live without my friend the Internet.

What is it you cannot live without?
