media fast

As a lifestyle experiment, we started a six month fast from the television. No TV, movies, or video games as of today. We cancelled our Blockbuster membership, unplugged everything and put the remotes in the drawer... and then uncomfortably stared at each other for a while.

What do we hope to gain? Time... A life in motion.... A break from pop culture... I don't know. But I already can tell that it won't be easy. Or hard. Just different. I got to take a nap.

Oh. And I got tickets to a concert next week. I haven't been to a concert since I saw INXS in 1997. I should break out the glow stick, baggy pants, and glitter covered tennis shoes for this.

I'm over thirty. I took out my tongue ring last year. That's it. I must be growing up. (I have a pension. These things happen.)

Great experiment!! I wish I had the guts to do it! But I hardly find time for any of that stuff anyways.

And I got a giggle out the the comment about pension plans. We have gotten older, haven't we.
