The Dark ages

The dark ages fell upon our house on the 8th of July when Telstra announced that we had gone over the 60gb download and now had to pay 15cents per mb. How can anyone download 60gb in 2 weeks......well, when 18 year olds return home ...that's how!
So we now have 17 days left until it kicks over to the new month and even after 2 days we still (all 6 of us) wander around the house, aimlessly staring into space because for the first time in 12 years I have switched the cable modem off.
In half an hour of us having to pay per mb we had already used 220 mb which is about $33.00.
That was within the first 30 minutes, imagine after 17 days!!!!
My dear ol' dad is letting me use his computer/net for banking and stuff. I do everything online. EVERYTHING.
The youngest kids are upset because their crops are dying in Farmtown. I am unable to read blogs and my husband cant peruse the pages and pages of Frothers forums at 4:30 in the morning.
17 days to go
I have cleaned every draw in the house and that was after 2 days.
I really am that addicted. My whole family is that addicted.
Ill be back in 17 days 6 hours and 24 minutes. Until then I will have to learn to communicate with people using my verbal real life talking skills. No more MSNing my son to come in for dinner.
No more telling my daughter to clean her room via a message on her Facebook wall.
No more playing Everquest II every night with my brother in law in Ohio who I already miss calling me names because that's what we do. Gosh, Ill have to talk to my husband. Oh and you know what was the worst of the worst?!?! My husband sat and watched Greys anatomy with me last night. NOOOOOO, I do not , now, or ever, want a man to watch chick flicks with me.
So I will sign off now. tapping the keyboard lovingly because I miss the feel of keys beneath my fingers and I will go and join reality until the 26th of July. I wont like it one bit but at least the house will be clean:)

Craft/blog/browse and do whatever you do like crazy. I will miss you all....Ok ok I better go before dad starts thinking I am writing a novel and using up all his internets.

Oh no! When we first got naked broadband we used up our 6G download! Did you read that Gigabyte - How? cause we were going berserk on it but instead of charging, they just 'shape' us to dial up so it wasn't too bad. Time to upgrade! I'm totally lost without my connection. See you on the flip side (or you could go to the library!)

lol we use 60 gigabyte matey and thats as much as you can upgrade for extreme broadband. after that u have to pay per meg, no shaping. we never expected our son would use all of it as we only usually use 40gig over the whole month. As an online sales person and avid mmo gamer, shaped speed is not an option lol. so I have to just suffer. I m at maccas now using their free bandwith muwahahahaha

poor you - i must admit that we would be lost without it. i refuse to buy newspapers so david has to read the news via the net.
i almost wet myself over the grey's anatomy comment - i'm so with you there - men do not belong in the room when it's on. my husband is a physio and he just rubbishes all the medical stuff. of course it's not realistic!!! if i wanted realism i'd watch rpa!!!
see you soon
