Surfing redux


Here is a post I wrote when I first started this blog. It still holds true.

Discovering Surfing
When I woke up this morning I lay in bed thinking about things I might or could write about on this blog. Then I realized - I am becoming addicted to the computer.
I love working on the computer.I have loved working on the computer since we bought our first luggable in the 1980s.
I like the sound of my fingers touching the keys - the light click of my fingernails against the hard plastic.
Typing makes me feel so productive. I love email. Being connected to people - immediately. Recently we set up WiFi in our home. WOW! The freedom of not being tethered to my desk upstairs in my office is exhilarating. I can use my laptop in front of the TV, on the dining room table, in the bedroom, everywhere. Instantly I am completely linked.
I have become fascinated by the internet itself - linking and linking and linking - moving further and further afield from where I start. I have discovered surfing - - surfing widely on the web. I did not understand what they meant - its a wild and free ride - - -I feel so unfettered, yet so productive as I hear myself clicking and clicking and clicking
No matter that the dishes are in the sink, the bed unmade, my work behind schedule, my lists growing longer and due dates looming larger and closer.
I AM SURFING - WHEEEEEE!

I agree with everything you said here. I just wish this kind of surfing counted as exercise.

And oh the places you can go! It is difficult to resist. What keeps me in line with it is simply lack of time. When work is over, blog is written, phone calls made and a little housework done it's usally after 11 and time to get to bed to start all over again.

But it's like a siren call I have to ignore.
