This morning, my apartment got internet. After over a year of tethering smartphones to laptops, keeping them next to the window to get good signal, feeling disconnected from all our friends (who live on the other side of the city), going over our data plan (very expensive) and paying for coffees as cafe to use their wireless (also expensive) we have internet.

I am rather excited.

We didn't get it for so long because of money, but mostly because we didn't think we'd be staying in this place long enough to get on a contract. Turns out we were wrong.

I'm home all day today, so this geeklist is to celebrate the things I'll do now that I finally can do everything in my internetty bliss.

If you have similar stories, feel free to add. This is my first geeklist.

Catching up on some music! It's been real frustrating not being able to listen to new albums, I'm usually pretty up to date on them (despite not having regular internet, I have over 50 albums from this year I've bought/itunesed at cafes.

First on the list is the new one by one of my favourite bands, 65daysofstatic.

Catching up on some television. I can't catch up in Breaking Bad until SO is home, but there are certainly plenty of other shows I want to watch like Orange Is The New Black. Right now I'm watching some classic era Simpsons.

Game reviews! There's a bunch of games I've been looking at but I don't know enough to buy yet, so I can finally research them properly.

First games of interest: Agricola and Cosmic Encounter.

Spielbyweb, and all the other sites to play boardgames online. Most of my friends have been really busy lately, so I've been playing games solitaire a lot this month (made sadder without the internet).

It'll be really nice to try out a bunch of games like Caylus and Le Havre, that I've read heaps about.

I'm not sure which is the best site for online boardgaming but now that I have internet I can find out!

Skyping friends. As I said, a lot of my friends live on the other side of the city. I've also got friends travelling around Europe and America that I haven't caught up with properly for months. It's going to be great to see their faces.

My theatre company is touring our biggest show to a couple of cities next year, and I haven't been able to get to work on the budget because I need internet to properly research all the touring grants we might be eligible for. Once I've done all of the fun things above, getting down to business with this stuff.

Not that budgets aren't actually heaps fun.
