Is There An App For TURN IT OFF?!

In the last month I have done the following:
  • Became a Flip Mino pro.
  • Updated my Facebook account with all the tricksy links in my "about me" section. You got tricked into that, too? Word.
  • Rocked out some PhotoShop courses.
  • Joined the birds on Twitt-ah.
  • Got an iPod Touch (Mother's Day, whaaaat?) and some supa sweet Apps to go with it. The level is insane. I can't imagine what it's like to play with it whilst intoxicated.
I'm beside myself with technology. HOW did the world exist before any of this? I mean, really. My head is constantly in elevently billion places with all the things I need to upload, text, blog, Tweet, like, record, and soonandsoforth.

I need to turn my brain off. Not joking. I literally need somone with an MD to install a switch that I can flick to say, "Kristi, turn off the telly, your computer, your cell phone, your iTouch, and anything else that requires power to run ('cept the microwave, 'cause that makes me snacks, duh) and just chill. Breathe in. Breathe out. The world will not cease to exist if something isn't connected and linking to the stratosphere of the world wide web.

So, tonight I will ignore all of it. And maybe tomorrow, too. And perhaps on the next day, my stimuli overload will have passed, and I will return. I think I'll tweet about it first, though...

I've been trying this new thing lately. I moved the laptop from the coffee table to the dining table (where I never go), now I'm not tempted to use it constantly and I find I don't even need it. Lovely! You're more advanced than me though, and have a smart phone....
