After the problem with the computer, I honestly thought I'd go into a withdrawal and get all weirded out being out of touch with the "world" out there. As it turned out, I didn't miss it that much. It actually felt nice to not have the compulsion to go constantly online and check what's out there. It felt nice to be unplugged for a change.

But was I really unplugged? I continued to get my emails on my phone. I still went online on my phone to check things once in a while, although granted I didn't spend as much time.

I also thought it was a good time to catch up on some stuff I wanted to do at home, granted they were chores so I guess there's a reason right there why I needed to "catch" up. Then there were books and mags I've been meaning to read for a while now. Granted I didn't really get to the books, got as far as reading some mags. Then of course the TV shows that's been lingering in our DVR that I've been meaning to watch for a while now.

Which brings me to my next thought, the slow death of normal TV. With the onset of DVR, how can one seriously still sit thru commercials these days? Of course, the more one get used to skipping thru ads, the more one keep on taping shows with the thought that it'd be watched a little later without the ads. So what happens, in the mean time? One finds more inane things to get preoccupied with and that taped show just stays saved. For how long? Who knows.

Before one realizes it, there's no longer enough hours in a day. All for what?


So, I wonder what would it take to get really unplugged? How would it really feel?

Guess I'll just wonder for now, as my show's about to start... Yah, right! Who am I kidding! I'm just moving on to the next inane thing...

Gotta love technology!
