So, the life of not really having anything to do can be really dangerous when you finally have internet and a phone line connected. I ended up getting sick this week with a cold, and that combined with the accident of about 3 weeks ago when a wooden bench fell on my foot causing quite a nasty looking bruis and probably breaking my toe, made me homebound with a bad case of cabin fever last week. While others went to work, I sat at home reading the newspapers in Spanish and Galician, watching "Se lo que hicisteis", the it show for the siesta hour (kind of like a weird transformation of "The Daily Show" and "The Soup" focused on celebrity gossip shows and with a pretty blond female host, haha), and then by 5pm, with at least 4 more hours until anyone was off work, feeling like I was going to lose it. But on Saturday, Telefonica finally came and installed internet, and since then being homebound has been too much fun. I've found episodes of travel shows, websites with delicious recipes, easy to access news videos, the many joys of perusing friends photos on facebook, reading all my freinds blogs, etc, and suddenly there aren't enough hours between 4-9pm...hahaha. Well, my cold is almost gone, my foot is getting better (probably due to the fact that now with internet I'm not trying to hobble around my house), and I've found many many new ideas for how to spend my time until my work papers come through...I'll share some of them, but more of Spain right after lunch. Provechito.
