Joining Melinda's Techonology-Free Day Challenge
Melinda, over at Elements In Time, came up with a great challenge for the month of March. It is to take one day a week and make it a Technology-Free Day. No TV, no internet, no techno gadgets of any sort for 24 hours. This is a tough one for me. Not the tv and gadget part, but the internet. I love to cruise the blogosphere, check my Yahoo! Groups, and play long, drawn out games of Scrabulous with my sister. And I like to do these things every frickin' day.
So I'm gonna step waaaaayyyyy out of my comfort zone and keep everything powered down on Sundays. For twenty-four hours straight.
Now, I was gonna get all philosophical here and praddle on about how difficult it can be to find a balance between our online lives and our real world responsibilities, but you all face the exact same issues, so why bother. Instead, I'll amuse you with one of my favorite jokes:
Two pretzels were walking down the street. One was a salted.
HA! Gets me every time! One thousand four hundred and forty straight minutes with me and my great jokes. Dude, my family is so LUCKY!
If you want to join the challenge, it's easy (the 'joining part', not the challenge itself). The rules are listed here at Melinda's Blog.
C'mon. You know you want to. Just do it already.
