An Internet Vacation

Funny story today about a guy from Wired who took an internet vacation for 7 days. Good luck with that! Here's a clip:
I recently took a vacation and, in a moment of deranged optimism, decided to take a vacation from the internet at the same time. I left my laptop behind and vowed not to access the web, my e-mail or any other facet of the Online Experience until I was back at home. The following is a diary of that experience, primitively scratched on a variety of wood pulp surfaces using graphite

Day 1: I'm having an astonishing day. Nobody has attempted to sell me Viagra in over 24 hours, nor have I been hit up for financial assistance by African royalty. On the train, I overheard a discussion of federal educational spending, and Hitler was not invoked even once. I think I could get used to this.

Day 2: Today went pretty well, except that at about noon I suddenly realized I didn't know all the lyrics to the theme song to The Facts of Life. I spent a few seconds casting about for my laptop before I remembered my plan. I was forced to spend the afternoon humming "There's a time you gotta go to show the crow you know the pro the slow plateau the FACTS OF LIFE!" This did not endear me to service workers and passersby.

Seriously, this is precisely why I never go even 7 HOURS without internet. You MUST be able to find out lyrics to old TV shows, what the girl in the movie you are watching has been in before and what kind of bug that is crawling in my kitchen. I seriously, could not and will not go a day without the internet. It's my best friend...
PS Went to Lucille's tonight. Lucille is my other new best friend.

Lucille is one of my many food mistresses.

There's a time you gotta go and show you've grown and now you know about the facts of life, the facts of life.
the sad part is that I know that without looking it up. ugh
