I can haz internetz? (and a house?)

It's almost hard to believe I grew up in a world without internet; I've been without the last 3 days and it's like I'm lost. How do I contact my friends, how do I pay my bills, how do I GOOGLE? There's only so much one can accomplish on an iPhone; last night we had to snag free wifi from Peter Piper Pizza. THE HORROR.

In any case, as you've likely surmised, being smart and all, I have my internetz again and life is getting back to normal. We are almost entirely moved in, Pablo has successfully cheek-juiced 98% of the house, and (as expected) Chica is still hiding under the bed. (Oh, cats...) I still have about 4.24x10^8 boxes to unpack, however, the kitchen is unpacked, and as far as I'm concerned that equals moved in. Except, like some kind of dunce, I left my knives at the old place so I can only sort of cook. Today I had to saw thru ciabatta with a steak knife. Sad, sad, sad.

On the upside (and entirely unrelated) I have discovered jalapeno hummus. I didn't think that sounded too great when I first heard of it, but wow, this shit is the bomb. And great for sinuses.

Seriously. How did we look stuff up before the internets, before the googles? It must have been a dark, dark time.

Re Hummus:

My wife bought some Doctor Hummus brand Jalapeno hummus. Good stuff. She got it at the Scottsdale farmers market, but I think Whole Foods might carry some of his stuff.

@darklordjames: Dewey Decimal and card catalogs. Yeah, I'm that old. And actually, come to think of it, once you got lost deep in the bowels of the library stacks, it was a dark place. Speaking of being old, this: link [www.reddit.com]

@ungeheier: My first taste was about a week ago when The Crandall brought me a hummus plate from the greek place down the street from the old house. At first I thought, this is odd, but then I tasted it and thought, this is awesome! In any case, yes, there was a little taster out at Whole Foods today and jalapeno hummus is now in my fridge.

I lol'd @ "cheek-juiced", thanks!

Looking things up before the internets was much more time consuming before (having an almanac, an atlas and a dictionary were essential!), but I spend so much of my free time online I've stopped reading books. I think I've read maybe 3 books in the last 10 years.

@Tophe: CR came up with that and I still chuckle every time he says it. And I hear you on the book thing, I manage maybe one a year. Last year it was even (gasp!) fiction.
