Scott shared a link from the charmingly obnoxious Cracked.com that lists the worst times to be browsing the web.
In that spirit, I apologize for the derth of posts over the break. With family in town and a party or two each day, there was precious little time to ogle my precious internet. At one point during the relaxing break, I wrote down on paper (!) a link that I wanted to look up later. You see, my smart phone is not that smart. Frequently I’ll see a link on Twitter that piques my interest and I’ll have to wait until I get home to check out the link on my incredibly smart desk top computer. Saturday night when I got home, I logged into Twitter and ‘opened in a new tab’ seven different links that I wanted to read. But check this out: I then went to sleep. I was so exhausted from relaxing and eating real food and drinking way too much adult (scotch) and non-adult (generic pop) beverages that I decided to go to sleep and reserve the tabs for the morning. The tale continues: I only got through about four of them in the morning before the next thing-that-was-taking-place-instead-of-reading-the-internet.
How lame is that? I’m not complaining about having a life, I’m highlighting how easy it is to be happy without the internet. And that’s not a popular opinion. To be fair, if I had a super smart phone, I’d be all over the internet constantly, like a deer on salt, so it’s for the best that the proverbial salt-lick is just out of tongue-shot.
Back to Cracked, those wily bastards… No one’s doing anything right now on the internet except for buying airfare, downloading coupons, “liking” The Muppets’ facetube page, or perusing Skyrim walk-throughs. I suppose the only other thing to be doing is talking about no one doing anything on the internet.
I mean, there’s always the news!
