In case you hadn't noticed, the extent of my retirement amounted to the "Appear Offline" feature of my many haunts. Okay, so maybe I cut down a little bit on the mindless games, which is partly a good thing because I've got about $400B accrued in MobWars, but I still feel this need to unplug even further (you know...since I got on my high horse in the previous post, I like to at least try and back it up), so I'm doing just that.
Remember sometimes back in grade school there'd be a school sponsored "No T.V. week," and it was the worst week of your life? Yeah, I'm thinking that such drastic measures are called for here. With the exception of email, and registering for school, and paying bills, I hereby inaugurate "No T.V. or internet for Jim month." Yes, I'm officially unplugging...as much as I can, anyway. I'll drop back in here in December and tell you all about it.
Oh, and since I'm here anyway, I've pretty much done the same thing with talk radio and watching the news (you know, so I can get the right spin and the left spin, respectively), and I gotta tell you, I'm a much happier person. My friends once compared politics to cocaine for their addictiveness, so I guess you could say I've finally de-toxed.
