We had a very nice weekend away at a little cabin-y retreat north of Santa Barbara. It was great to see trees and escape from the internet and TV even if our cabin did smell a little like skunk 🙂 There were a lot of families with lots of kids there, so waking up to piercing 6 year old voices wasn’t the BEST thing ever, but they had a cappuccino machine at the store at the bottom of the hill, so it was all good 🙂 The place was upscale, but people brought tents and stuff, and cooked over BBQ grills outside their cabins. It was sweet. We were over it and ready to escape in exactly the right amount of time.
I brought 3 1/2 books with me and ended up reading them all around 5pm yesterday, so then I did a marathon session of Puzzle Quest on my DS lite. I wish that game had different puzzles to play vs. different mobs, but, oh well. It’s no Puzzle Pirate (OMG, DS Puzzle Pirate, drool!) I’ll make a separate post about the books later, so I can include the (infamously bad) cover art.
Anyway, I get back, log on, and have about 15000 invites from a myriad of social networking sites. It’s out of control, my friends. What is PARTICULARLY annoying is all the Facebook apps that people want me to install so we can see if we both love the LOTR movies. I swear, if I installed every one of the ones people sent me, I would have 150 different boxes on my Facebook page. And I thought MySpace gave me sensory overload.
So, I’ve decided that, although I’d love to know how compatible I am with people regarding food favorites(not), I’m going to decline installing more Facebook apps. Also, I’ve given myself a 24 hour deadline to drop either Twitter or Pownce. They are redundant, and I basically post the same things on them, so what’s the point, right? Maybe when I get a cooler cellphone that I can update from the road, I’ll dedicate more time to these things, but honestly, if people are interested in the kind of oatbran I’m eating…it’s Kashi, btw 😀
Oh, and I was fooling around with my laptop camera while I was away (no internet, remember?) and I wanted to share this picture with you. I am addicted to Intelligentsia coffee, and this is me with an empty bag of espresso:
Do I need to go to rehab?
