Okay.  I found a new website.  Well, it’s new to me.  And let me tell you…I am addicted.  It’s called Pinterest and I just can’t get enough.  It’s more distracting than Facebook, because it gets you in and you start looking at stuff that is Oh So Cool and you just can’t stop.  So, this is me, stopping.  I’m now writing this blog for you, but I do believe that you should check out Pinterest.com.  Because It. Is. Awesome.  And you can pin anything that you see from any web site (except facebook).

The internet is so addictive.  And trust me on this…addiction studies is what I have my degree in.  Seriously…they’ve done brain studies and your brain lights up like a back alley hooker hitting the crack pipe when you are online and engaged.

Especially if you’re into those 1st person shooter games.  Those are especially bad.  But the internet can be great too.  It’s an invaluable resource when my kid gets some random rash on their elbows.  What the hell would I do without WebMD.com???  I mean really?  I don’t remember what I did before Google.  Encyclopedias?  Waste of time.  Yellow pages?  Only if they’re online.  I don’t need cable.  I’ve got Netflix and Hulu.  But one of these days, I’m gonna shut it down for at least a week.  Because sometimes you just have to get out of the house, release the laptop and the iphone, and go experience something for real.  We wonder why we are all getting fat, sedentary, and no one is happy.  We are chasing dreams that are constantly perpetuated by the media that is taking up more and more and more of our lives.

Here’s an idea.  So, in honor of my Pinterest addiction I am dedicating the rest of my day to the real world.  Right after I finish this paper that’s due tomorrow.  Shit.
