Did I break the internet when I googled "Google?"

Why can I access the rest of the internet but not any Google sites? How can I fix this?

(I've already tried "downforeveryoneorjustforme.com" but that's not working either)
Since I've woken up today (last few hours) I've been able to access other internet sites (fbook, askmeta, etc) but not any Google ones (blogger, gmail, google.com, etc)
I can't access it from my iPod and my roommates haven't been able to get it to work either. What's going on here?
Relevant info: I use a VPN sometimes, mostly to access American sites like Hulu as I currently live in France. A few days ago, google.com wasn't working for me and I got a message that basically said I was a spammer because too many IP addresses were coming up for me. I ignored the message (that would show up after trying to Google something) and started using bing instead. I was still able to access blogger and my gmail during this time though.
