It’s not until I lose my access to the internet that I begin to realize how much I rely on it. I’m not at home now, and where I am the internet relies on a password. Last night, I was logged in by the person with the password so I could use the internet but it kept kicking me back off and so I had to give up on it and today the person with the password isn’t here so as I get ready to drive back down to Maryland I keep thinking “Oh, I should look up… dammit.” I’m already planning on stopping at a McDonalds to publish this column. I actually have no idea what’s on television tonight as I’m typing this, or else I’d try and tie my current information black out into what’s on television in some incredibly awkward way since that’s what I do. But I don’t, so I can’t. Below is what’s on television tonight which I will be filling in at some later time (Note: Thank you to Drexel University for offering free WiFi to guests in the area):
8:00pm: “Bachelor Pad” on ABC
