How wired are you?

I sit at a desk from about 0900-1500 hrs Monday through Friday. So I troll the Internet for hours on end. Now, dont get me wrong I get my work done well I get it done from about 1400-1500hrs. You would be amazed at how fast I work when there is a fire under my ass! I need motivation, I really do, I am not a self starter. I mean I do get things done but I am like a farmer with a fire breathing lizard...AKA: My Ass Is A-Dragon!

It seems I have no real desire to do much of anything these days, I have all the tools to do just about anything but lack the motivation to even look at them. My writing suffers, my exercising never gets started, I rarely read anymore and I used to read all the time, chores get done just because I hate looking at my own filth and my desk at home has gotten so bad I had a paper avalanche the other day and all I did was look at it and step over it. And for the most part I blame myself, and the Internet. I mean come on, I have a blog I love telling stories and sharing my world with other on, I have a Facebook, Myspace, Flickr and online newspapers I comment on! And then there are the sites I go to......NJ.com, The Smoking Gun, Post Secret, Craigslist, Ebay, NothingToxic, Wimp and others that are not family or work friendly ( sssshhhh dont tell anyone but I do look at A LOT of adult things on line sssshhhh).

And in all this really takes up my time, and let us not forget all the online gaming I do with Call of Duty4, but I think that is slowing winding down. I still like playing it but I think I need a new game now, been there done that.....But I might not buy any for a while, I dont need another addiction to latch on to at this moment!

I going to try for a while to just limit my computer time to blogging and work for a while. I mean if the Internet goes down tomorrow I am sure we would all find something more constructive to do with our time. After this post I am shutting down my Internet explorer and getting my desk cleared off.

I mean come on, facebook got boring after 3 days, myspace has been boring, I love flickr but there are only so many pictures one can look at, nj.com is so full of self righteous trolls I dont know what to do with myself, I have no money so why am I window shopping on ebay, craigslist is just about the same problem and all the other places I might troll will still be there when I decide to come back. I am like the little kid that does not want to go to sleep for fear of missing something. I dont want the be that person that has not seen the newest youtube sensation or the last person to find out what a new trend is about. I laugh at those people all the time, "What do you mean you dont know what The Shocker, Emo or the Moonboy Hardstyle is!" Get with the program people! But I know most people out there can not sit at a computer like I do and school themselves on the newest and greatest things going on. I also know that my trolling is slowly killing me and I have to get off this crazy thing. It is fun, no its beyond fun, its the most fun one can have sitting still! I hope that this medium is up and running when I am too old to even fart, so I can have a way to touch the outside world even though I can no longer do so.

But I am still able to walk, run, hop, skip and jump....and that is just what I plan on doing for now on. Turn off your idiot boxes and go outside, the weather is getting better so lets all do the same. And hell it might save some electricity as well.

But I do want to share a few pictures before I run off:

1)He is just mental over markers!


2)Maybe we will have at least one artist in the family yet!


3)And last but not least.....the very bane of my Internet fights:


And if I said it once I have said it a million times:

You can only get away with the last picture because you are not representing the entire u.s. If you were then we'd have a problem.

I am totally hooked on the net. I couldn't even say how many times I check my email in a day, but its way too many times! The internet is a black hole that sucks your soul into it. And getting into an internet fight... I can't explain it but it really is like banging your head against a wall, or at least that is what it feels like! It is possibly one of the worst feelings ever, because you can't really do anything about it. That's why I have that disclaimer on my blog, if you don't like what I have to say don't visit and annoy me with your opinion.

Time away from the internet might be good for all of us.

When I first got the net about ten years ago I was totally addicted. And because of that, partly it ended my marriage. In retrospect I'm glad I'm free of the self-centered bitch.

Anyway, now I spend maybe an hour or two a day after work with a few frosty adult beverages. I still enjoy writing and on my blog I'm still honing that skill. Besides, my blog is free and professional councilling in expensive.

I spend 99% of my day at work outside so I enjoy coming home to a nice air-conditioned house.

I've always enjoyed reading your stuff and I hope you'll continue to write and post funny shit...

As for your illegal BB gun... My Uncle who lives in South Jersey, somewhere near Rt. 73... Actually has a machinegun license. How the hell he pulled that one off still amazes me.

I'm hooked too. I have 2 cell phones (both with internet access) and I have my computer at home. I'm always checking my twitter or the blog or my email.

I can't settle down. I would never survive working in an office. I'd instantly die of boredom.
