20 Things to do When Your ADSL Dies

You may have noticed that my declaration of the Winner of my Free SEO Give-Away competition came out a day late.

You may not have noticed.

But I did.

Why was it late? My ADSL decided to die. Or maybe it just went on strike, overheated (it was 30-something in the shade in Jerusalem yesterday), decided it needed a rest – your guess is as good as mine.

Whatever the case, here I was, on a Monday afternoon, fighting with random.org. No random, no winner …

After a couple of hours, I decided to call it a day.

And there I was, looking at my 4 walls, wondering what to do. “Go outside and enjoy the fresh air” some of you are saying. “Go have a nap” are some others (those of you know know that my best work is done at 3am!). 

What was I thinking? “Cool subject for a Blog post” !!!!

So here it is: 20 (enjoyable)  things to do when your ADSL dies:

  1. Go outside and take a breath of fresh air (as long as it isn’t 30-something or more outside …)
  2. Take the kids to the park (as long as it isn’t 30-something …)
  3. Sit on the balcony with a fresh brewed coffed, topped with whipped cream
  4. Read a book
  5. Read the newspaper
  6. Watch some TV on a TV screen (not on your computer screen)
  7. Have a nap
  8. Have a haircut
  9. Have your legs waxed (gents – you might want to think of your own one here)
  10. Treat yourself to a massage
  11. Go the beach
  12. Go to the pool, if, like me, no-one has yet worked out how to bring a beach to Jerusalem
  13. Meet a friend for afternoon tea in your favourite tea-house, cafe, whatever
  14. Meet your significant other for afternoon tea in your favourite tea-house, cafe, whatever
  15. Call your mother
  16. Call your mother-in-law (I know I said enjoyable, but she’s really OK 🙂 )
  17. Try to beat your kids’ Bubbles score
  18. Go for a drive with your favourite radio station blaring, and the windows open
  19. Water the plants (especially if it’s 30-something outside…)
  20. Start planning your next vacation (Thailand, anyone?)

Blast, that blinking ADSL came back on, as I finished making thist list. Maybe one day I’ll just turn it off??

Have a fun day everyone
