Six Million Dollar Man

Writer's Block: Cold turkey tremors

What is the longest, uninterrupted stretch you've stayed offline (without mobile access either)? How soon did you suffer withdrawal pains? Did you find it liberating?

Erm, that would be the 16 years before I went to college ... y'know, before Al Gore invented the internet for us. ¬.¬

After that, would be the year or so after college before Prodigy, Compuserve, and AOL started showing up. And yeah, I was jonesin' for my e-mail by that point. BBSes just weren't cuttin' the mustard.

Some good news on the health front (hurrah!) -- the steroids are working. I'm not "all better" by any stretch, but my coughing is greatly subsided and my air intake has definitely improved. The only sign of "jitteriness" that I've noticed is that I had a bit of trouble going to sleep ... then had very active and vivid dreams while I was asleep (incorporating elements from laurie_robey's video selection last night of Big Bang Theory ... so basically, vivid dreams about nerds) ... and then the eyeballs went "POINK! Awake!" at 5:00 a.m.

So I'm not quite ready to jump up and dance just yet ... but I am at least able to bop back and forth to the strange rhythms in my head...
