I'm thinking about getting one of those timers for our modem, the kind that turn your lights off and on when you're on vacation.  Because I sit down to type a post, but then I get distracted reading e-mail, other people's blogs, checking twitter and facebook, and by the time I'm done with that a) an hour (or more) has gone by, and b) I've forgotten what I was going to say.  And it was important today, dammit.  If I could just remember what it was........  oh, well, if it was really important it will come back.  But if I had one of those timers, the internet could be turned off in the morning (when I'm home alone and can think about things) without my actually having to exert any self-control.  Then it could magically turn back on in the afternoon when MadMax gets home and desperately must play Runescape at exactly this second.

that's all.  oh, well, here is one more thing.  I think I am going to stop asking the questions at the end of the post.  I only started doing it about a month ago, because I was trying to get y'all to say something (*cough*).  But it isn't working (except for a few of you, thank you, Julie and the others). I don't know why you're such a quiet bunch, but it's OK.  I can tell by the stats page that you're out there, and I guess that's all that matters.


  1. You know I am going to answer, even if you didn't ask the question! I'm all ego-y like that, lol.
    And, as far as the book query from yesterday goes, I wanted to know if I had read them too! I think I have, but my retention is not what it should be...

  2. Oh I know this feeling. I sit down at the computer to write or blog or whatever and then I get sucked into the internet and come up an hour later not having completed any task that I sat down to do.
