virtual insanity

So apparently just because my computer works, doesn't mean I have time to type my blog posts. Maybe I should start vlogging or podcasting. I could just ramble on and never type! I think I'm going to type tonight.

Right now, however, there is a Darth Vader toy flying on my head (Clark thinks Darth Vader can fly because he has a cape) and a whole bag of natural cheese puff things dumped on the floor and both of my kids have green snot in their noses and there are several sacks of groceries I got yesterday that have still not been put away and a sweet sweet baby girl on my lap and oh yeah this is why I don't open my computer until Clark is in bed at night.

(That last paragraph was one sentence. I am a very talented writer.)

I wrote that at like 11am. I never had time to edit it so it just sat open in a window on my computer as I dashed off to run an errand.

I try very hard to be an organized person but now? I am having a hard enough time organizing my house, and now I have to organize my technology too. Between emails, facebook wall posts, tweets, blog comments I want to respond to, blogs I want to comment on and OH YEAH REAL LIFE I am (hold on... my iPod touch just made a dinging noise alerting me that it has received an email message and now I checked my email and it looks like Marie just commented on a photo I posted on my Facebook wall which means she is online right now and I want to Facebook chat her and SEE WHERE I AM GOING WITH ALL OF THIS? Out of control right?) just not sure how to keep it all simplified.

Any suggestions?

And on a sidenote, now that I am "organizing my technology" I know for sure I am, in fact, living in the creepo future.

  1. I have to say, I am really enjoying not having a working cell phone. Except for that time a few weeks ago when I was stranded because the truck wouldn't start. And the first pay phone I tried didn't work. And I didn't know my home number OR my husband's cell number. Other than all those things, it's quite nice.

    Sometimes technology can suck it. (But not facebook chat. I would miss you too much.)

  2. I also want to say that your blog title is making jamiroquai dance in my head. I hope I don't dream about him. I'd rather dream about Bette Midler.

  4. Creepo is my new favorite word.
    I have been struggling with the same thing lately. I am afraid that I am coming to the conclusion that I can not organize time in such a way as to to all the things I want to do, because it is just time that I do not have. I am going to have to cut some things. Number 1 on the list - stupid celebrity blogs. ;)

  5. I am awful at organizing time! I will spend an hour with online time when I'm really only supposed to spend five minutes, then I'll spend five minutes cleaning when I really needed to spend an hour cleaning. I need an iphone implanted in my BRAIN so I can just twitter my thoughts without actually typing them, thus enabling me to clean at the same time.

  7. Luckily (and unluckily) I live in the middle of nowhere. There's no cell phone service here, and I secretly like it that way. Despite that, I get totally sucked in to the computer so quickly. I've had to just limit myself, and be okay with that.

  8. I am laughing so hard right now cause this is exactly how I feel.
