I didn't touch my computer once yesterday. Not once. For those of you who know me, you'll know this is a minor miracle. And the fact that I didn't go into withdrawals is a major miracle. Why did I feel the need to do this? That's a good question. Aside from my writing/computer/internet/blog/facebook/twitter addiction, I had a dream. Yes, a dream. It was a very odd dream that made me realize that I needed a 24 hour (at the very least) break from my computer.
It went something like this:
I am walking down the street in my neighborhood and run into my blog friend Jenn. Now, since I have never met Jenn in real life, I not only have no clue what her voice sounds like, but I also have no idea what anything beyond her smiling head looks like. So that is exactly how Jenn appears in my dream--a floating picture of just her head. (Now, Jenn, I think you're gorgeous, but a floating picture of your head in my dream was just plain creepy).
"Hey, Jenn," I say.
"Hey, Kasie." Remember, I have no idea what she sounds like, so this appears as typed written letters beside her head. Yes, her head begins to IM with me.
"How are you?"
"I'm good. LOL."
"What's so funny?"
"Oh, I was just reading Kiersten's twitter update."
"Really? Was it funny?"
"See for yourself." Next to Jenn, Kiersten's head appears (once again, beautiful, but creepy).
It says: Kierstenwhite is hugging Laptop. He just thought of the best idea ever.
"Really? What idea was that?" I ask Kiersten because apparently her twitter is now in direct communication with me. (mind you, no one but me is actually speaking in this dream and I'm beginning to look around for some people who have actual voices).
Thank goodness my good friend Candi appears in this moment. "Hi, Kasie. Did you hear about Kiersten's Laptop's idea?" She has a voice.
"Uh, no, she was just about to tell me...I think."
"I was," types Kiersten.
I wait to hear the idea, but Natalie and Jenni arrive in this moment with Nikki's whole family picture floating beside them. This is getting weird, I think in my dream. Time to wake up before more of my blog friend's heads appear. And thank goodness I did.
So, as you can all see, I needed a break from my computer for 24 hours. Perhaps I shouldn't have shared that. Hmmm, oh well, you all already know I'm crazy.
