    chickenwifiI’m writing this post while I’m waiting for my car to be repaired at the car repair service.

    I have to wait here for almost two hours and am offline. I’m trying to tell myself that this is a good thing because I can finally catch up on all those messages in my Inbox that need to be read.

    But I’m going through serious withdrawal symptoms here. Not a minute goes by that I don’t open a browser window to quickly check up on something or one of my applications asks me for an Internet connection.

    Evernote wants to sync with its servers. My .Me account wants to connect to me.com. My Dictionary warns me that it get its content from the Internet so I can’t even look a few words up.

    Oh Lord, won’t you buy me a 3G ExpressCard?
    My friends all have jailbroken iPhones with Wireless Tethering, I must make amends.
    Work hard all my lifetime, no wi-fi makes no sense,
    So Lord, won’t you buy me a 3G ExpressCard?
