three things and a good steak

I once had a conversation in which the question was asked "if you found yourself in an empty apartment what three things could you not do with out?" or put another way " what three things would you require to survive happily in an empty apartment?" The apartment element was crucial to the conversation since it allowed for the assumption that heat, pluming and electricity were available.

Most people answered with the usual "cocktail party approved" response; favorite music, books, a television perhaps. For me it came down to these three things:

A bed - while I am not opposed to sleeping on the floor I find that a mattress plays a big part in my attitude toward life in the morning.

A shower - again feeding into the fact that I am not a morning person and like my rituals.

and (drum roll please) ...

Internet Access!!!!!

This may not seem like an obvious choice however, I believe that everything you want can be found on the internet if you are willing to search. For example:

With the internet you can
be entertained
read your favorite book
buy furniture for your home
listen to music
communicate with friends and family
the list goes on and on ....

And, as of last night, I am now convinced that you can also eat off of the internet. Enter Omaha Steak Company

Last night we had steaks which were absolutely delicious. They were tender, full of flavor and delivered to my front door! Amazing.

Now, I wonder if I can find someone to clean my refrigerator on the internet? I will let you know what I find.

They're called students, and the next time I'm in Seattle and on a budget, I'd be happy to oblige.
