Solitaire, Spider Solitaire and Free Cell - A Day Without Internet

Today was officially the longest day of my life. Really! The longest day!

Today when I got to work we had no internet connection, our servers were down, the phone lines weren't working, the interoffice phone lines weren't working and so that meant I wasn't working! And I love working! Well I guess I don't love it, but if I have to be there 8 hours a day, I want to work, not just sit there.

But sit there I did. 8 hours. I started out with checking my email via yahoo on my cell, then I facebook'd it up a bit, again on my phone. Then I started playing the only games available. Solitaire, Spider Solitaire and Free Cell *sigh*. I even attempted to play Minesweeper *gasp* I know, I know. Who in their right mind plays Minesweeper? Who in their right mind would even invent a game like Minesweeper! I might as well play Sudoko!

I chit chatted with co-workers. I shuffled paper on my desk. I complained and whined and went to the bathroom way  more than was necessary just to get away from my desk. Then I again checked facebook & yahoo on my cell phone, talked to my sister and read more of my online book.

And as if things couldn't get worse....I used up the battery in my phone! Now all I had available was Solitaire, Spider Solitaire and Free Cell. was the longest day of my life. When I left at 5 our system wasn't working yet and may not be tomorrow. I'm taking a book, my phone charger and snacks!

It is Friday yet? How was your day?


  1. Gee, that sounds like everyday in my life only with the computer on. Hope you get it back tomorrow.

  2. Oh Vay! Not a good sounding day. Praying you can work today :O)

  3. Donnie - It wouldn't have been so bad to be at home doing all that, but when you're at work and you can't work and you HAVE to stay there it makes the day drag on forever!

  4. Braley Mama - Computers were back up at about 11:30 today Summur. I made up for it today lemme tell ya!

  5. Wow. I think I'd feel like you...cray-zee! I'd add to you list cleaning out my desk and my files on my hard drive.

    And YES....I now keep a charger for my phone in my bag just in case my cell starts gasping.

    Um. We're not addicted...are we??
