I woke up this morning thinking that this would be a typical Sunday morning. I made a cup of tea, checked my emails then typed in www.twitter.com expecting my home page to come up and show me what my Twitter friends are up to this fine day. Instead, I get this Google screen that says "Oops! This link appears to be broken". Huh?!
Okay, Kat, don't panic....it'll be fine. I try to link up to Twitter from a couple different angles with the exact same results. Now I'm starting to sweat. No Twitter? I'm not sure that I can handle it; after all, it's my biggest addiction. I don't even have any chocolate in the cupboard to soothe myself! The shakes are starting.....
An hour later, I still can't get onto the site. This is getting serious! I've had such a busy week that I haven't been able to spend much time online so I really need a hit!
It's amazing how powerful these connections become in our lives. I don't think we realize how powerful until they aren't there. If I miss my online friends this much when they aren't there, imagine if those that I know and love around me were to disappear. I think that we all need to be reminded of this now and then. We are all so busy with our everday lives that we don't always remember to appreciate those that make our everday lives bearable.
Maybe I'll use this Twitter downtime to make a couple of calls; you know, connect with a few people.
