I can't believe how fast we communicate. It just hit me for some reason. I was checking icanhascheezburger.com (one of my favorite blogs...you'll find it to the right) and came across a picture I thought Courtney would appreciate. So I quickly downloaded the picture to my My Pictures file (on my new work laptop! yay!), opened up gmail and attached the picture to a note and sent it to her. This took me maybe thirty seconds.
When I was a teenager I would have had to wait until I got home for the day to call her and tell her about it. And chances would be she would never be able to see it because she probably wouldn't have the Internet. Or is she did it would take her quite some time to dial up and find the picture.
I know thousands have posed this question. But ARE we TOO in touch? Are we too spoiled. Maybe that's a better question. This is my first laptop. I don't know how I lived without laptop before. That is sad. I now carry two communication devices with me at ALL TIMES.
I guess that's why it is so important to rest Sundays. At least one day a week get away from everything. Get out of touch. Be with those you love. Take a nap. Don't turn on the television. Play your guitar. Read a book. Ahhhhh...it's wonderful just thinking about.
But I AM thoroughly enjoying my new job. Oh, how I am. I sent my first edits out to my children's book authors today. It was very exciting.
And now for that picture I wanted Courtney to see...
There are probably few of you who get this. I wouldn't have gotten it if she hadn't told me about Soylent Green. I'm LOLing just thinking about it.
