I thought computers were supposed to save time...

I finished work over an hour ago.

I was determined to get off the stupid computer as soon as I finished work today.

Yes, I know. A computer is an inanimate object and therefore cannot be stupid. Still, my computer is stupid. Very stupid, sometimes.

Anyway. Sorry for the digression. I learned Tangents 101 from the best of them.

I was going to finish work, get off the computer, have some lunch and then read for awhile.

But then I thought: "I'll just check Ravelry (the knitting site I frequent) one more time." Fine. Didn't take long. Oops. Got to look at Twitter just once more before I log off. That didn't take long either. OH. Bills have to be paid. That took awhile. Always does.

Then another thing came up, and another.

And now, here I am, writing a blog post. Complaining about how much of my time my computer sucks up. Because it's stupid.

No. It isn't stupid. I am.

I'm going to go read a book now. Really.

I did share that with the Mrs. V here. She laughed and said, "I like that." I knew she would be able to identify with it...she teaches the kids who get kicked out of all their other classes at her middle school.

No way I could ever do that.

I'm glad you enjoyed the post. I really did go read a book. Not for awhile after I finished writing, as I had to go do a couple of other things. But then I had two hours sitting in a waiting room while Mrs. V was visiting her daughter-in-law in the hospital. Read at least a quarter of the book, in between watching people.

And...thanks so much for encouraging me to post more often. As my best friend says, I need a kick in the seat of the pants every once in awhile.
