Another Public Service Message


And yes, a Guide is needed. Because the Internet will suck you in before you know it.


Twelve years ago? Noob. Some of us have been here since the Victorian era!


The Internet is a jealous mistress. She will never let you go.


Bwa-ha-ha-ha! Don't say you haven't been warned.

I was really behind when it came to the Internet. Didn't get a computer until 2005, but once it was here, I was off to the races.Oh my, to go without it for a day? Perish the thought.

Diane Cayton-Hakey said...

I am sooo laughing at this post and how true it is. Oh, and that last photo of the cave? LMAO

Diane Cayton-Hakey said...

P.S. I've been lost on the internet since 1996.

Adam said...

that's one reason why I could never move out to a very rural area. I hear getting any kind of decent internet is nearly impossible

Elsie Amata said...

I remember my first chat room…seems like it was ages ago. I couldn't believe I was talking to someone in another state on the computer!!

Leeanna said...

I'm wondering what would the world be like without the internet, or computer technology, or even cellphones. Strange and interesting.

Mary said...

It's true! It's all true! Lol. If only i'd known before i lost my luddite status!

The Happy Whisk said...

I have desk in our bedroom and a coupon station next to that. It's a No-Internet Zone. Just a wall, two passed out puppies, a comfy chair and quiet.

I love it.

mistress maddie said...

I wouldn't know anything about this.

I burst out laughing. These are funny and so true. I teach a class on the social media for the tech-challenged. I suggest to them to write down the specific things they're going on-line for, before going on-line, so they don't get sucked in. But we all get sucked in anyway.

Vanessa Morgan said...

I make my living thanks to the Internet, and, yes, cats have been my guide :-)

Cheryl said...

Yes, the Internet is the closest thing to an addiction that I have ever had. If the Internet had the same side effects as alcohol, I'd be dead now.

Anne Johnson said...

I can remember the world without the Internet. It was good in a way because human beings interacted together more. But it was isolating. If you were the slightest bit different, i.e., in your orientation or religious sentiments, you could spend a whole lifetime and not meet anyone like yourself. OTOH, I read a lot more books before the Internet. But in the long run I like it. I would just be re-reading Pride and Prejudice for the 6th time if not for the Web.

Jim said...

I KNOW this post doesn't refer to me!! I just know it doesn't! lol

Magic Love Crow said...

LOL! This is sooooo true!!!!

Plowing Through Life (Martha) said...

Cutting ties with civilization...but still being online? What's there not to love? :)

Professor Chaos said...

That's my dream, too!

klahanie said...

I do know when my Internet Service "Unprovider" goes down and I can't surf the internet, I get um waves of panic.

Have a good weekend, eh.

Hindustanka said...

Haha! I cannot imagine my life without Internet... without my blog, my FB, my email, my skype... how did people survive before??? ;)

LL Cool Joe said...

I had a real internet addiction a few years ago, and it hasn't got any better. ;D

mrsduncanmahogany said...

True that.

heartinhand said...

This post made me have a "screeching modem" flashback! Lol!

Shalet Jimmy said...

I am not an addict. But I love internet. I could not have known you, if there there was no internet.

Ol'Buzzard said...

being unplugged would be unimaginable to most people.

Paulette said...

Do you suppose if the internet died, the paper, stamp and postal services would experience a boom?
Good Grief, I'd have to learn how to spell, to write so others could read my writing and locate a mail box...heaven forbid:)

Dawna said...

I'm feeling that last pic!. That.. is how I often feel.. Euston...

btw Deb.. for some odd reason your posts don't come up on my 'timeline', I have to pop over myself to check updates. I don't know what I may have done wrong when I clicked the follow button. I think I just clicked it but didn't past your link or something. No worries though.. but let me know if you know how to rectify :)

G. B. Miller said...

Well, I grew up prior to the Internet, so to be honest, if it actually went away, while I would feel a small twinge of panic because I wouldn't be able to keep in touch with a few certain people, I think I could live with doing things the old fashioned way.

Linda Wildenstein said...

ain't it the truth???????? It's like sticky snot, ya just can't get rid of it.

Joy Christi said...

I've been on since the first lame DANCING BABY "video" remember that one???

Riot Kitty said...

I love the weather one! I fought tech. I didn't get my own email address until 2000.

Insomniac’s Attic said...

Willow said...

Blueberry said...

So true, and it makes me think of this wonderful song/video that I just have to hear once in a while: http://youtu.be/zi8VTeDHjcM. The internet is made of CATS!

YONKS said...
