We have been doing a bit of traveling lately, including a whirlwind trip back to the US. I have plenty of material to catch up posting on, but it might be a few weeks before I get to it. The reasons for the delay are that we are busy working and traveling again next weekend, but also, I don’t have a computer. While home in the US, I sent my computer back to be repaired via warranty, and have no idea how long it will take to get back to me. I do the majority of my posts in the evening on my little laptop, so not having one probably makes those go away.
According to comedian Adam Carolla, the internet is like chapstick, lotion and sunglasses – you don’t really need them until you get used to them and are then forced to go without them. It probably isn’t a stretch to say that this statement is true for me, and I would even say that my computer could be substituted for the internet. Even if I don’t have an internet connection, I can find ways to kill time on my computer.
I just got a computer at work that has been collecting dust but will now be my “work only” computer, and I’ll see how long I can go without one at home. I like to think of it as a chance to get in touch with other non-computer parts of my life, so hopefully I’ll be back with an enlightened outlook on life. Perhaps I’ll have read a book, spent quality time with my wife and cat, started my new workout plan, or cooked some fantastic recipes. Or maybe I’ll just use my work computer. Or the WordPress App for my Android phone. Either way, I’ll be sure to report.
