Sometimes I think all my electronic crutches are habits...my computer, my iphone, my kindle. If one goes down, I panic. Then I look around and realize it's not just me. I see groups of people "hanging out together" in person, socializing but 1/2 to 3/4 of the group are texting. I sit in business meetings where people text. It's maddening. Then there are the social networks. Sometimes I just have to turn it all off, be alone with my thoughts and remind myself I am human.
Me too!! I dip tobacco... I started that when I "quit" smoking. I guess I basically traded one for the other. I have one or two dips a day. I have a habit of going to reddit.com and looking at the NSFW pictures too, but I think that is just because I am stuck on a boat with all dudes.
Greetings from Monday! I won't broadcast my location (in case of assassins sent from Mordor, I know you in New Zealand know all about that...), but check it out on my profile. But you didn't answer my question... do you have a half-hour time zone
Yes something like this happens to me when I am in England. I have lived in Canada for so long that people in England say 'oh your from NZ aren't you?' I'm not kidding, or Ireland, or South Africa, or France, or Wales, or Germany, or Zimbabwe... I guess my accent is flavoured enough not to be "obviously" English... although everyone in my home town here in Canada asks me where I am from too (though they are assuming England in their heads... I can feel it.)
I am in a half-hour time zone. It is 8:30 in New York, and 1:30 in London, but 10pm here... we're half-an-hour "off"
