I HAVE INTERNET AT HOME AGAIN!!!

It's been five weeks of coffee taxes for "free" wifi which doesn't work two times out of three and you can't make a fuss, because after all it's free, even though you have twelve desperately important emails to send RIGHT NOW and your lunch break is about to end. Five weeks of trailing round town with my laptop like an internet bag lady. Five weeks when I've hardly got to read any LJ at all. Paradoxically, it's probably made me faster at responding to emails because I know I have to do it on the spot; when I think I can do it any time, I stick my head in the sand and don't reply for a week. Hopefully the new habits will stick.

But oh my god. You have no idea how good it feels to be online AT MY DESK with MY OWN MUSIC ON, and to know I can stay in tonight and catch up on all my fringe-mail, and not have to worry that the bar staff are looking at me funny because I've been nursing a half for three hours, or that I have too many bits of paper on the table. I can go to the bathroom without having to pack up all my bits of tech and bring them with me in case they get nicked, hoping someone won't steal my seat (the only one near a power socket) while I'm gone. I can get up and have a cup of tea for free whenever I want to. Ahhhhh.

In fact I might just do that now.

How are you doing?
