Did you know that the computer is evil? Not the hellfire-and-brimstone evil, but that subtle whisper of evil. That “I’m just not sure if this is right or not” evil. Or maybe it isn’t the computer but the internet. Yeah, that’s it. The internet is evil.
“Why post such a thing?” you ask. I know the internet is a great source of information, that it’s a global village and all that. You can google something obscure and get fifty-bazillion hits and learn something that you didn’t know you needed to know, like do butterflies fart? Go ahead, google it. You know you want to.
No, the internet/computer is evil because procrastinators like me will use it as an excuse to get nothing done. Here I am, home with no children, and I’m hanging out on the computer just because I want to see if I got any email. Checking to see if New Age Bitch responded to my comments or not. Reading other blogs that I have no business reading because I have things I need to do here, like get toys and clothes ready for this really big consignment sale next week, or clean, or figure out what’s for dinner. Or I could be out playing with my new telephoto lens that arrived yesterday (thank you Trey – you’re my lobster).
At least I made it to the grocery store.
It’s a good thing I don’t have an iPhone. Then I could be worthlessly doing nothing but internet stuff everywhere!
