Look away

"While I crawl into the unknown,
Cover me"
-Bjork
Ok, I may be a talker, but I also listen. Then I think about what I've heard. Sometimes too much. Last night some friends were teasing me because I'm constantly on my cell phone, which is basically a computer complete with constant internet access. A few months ago, greg put a "push" program on my phone that literally pushes emails through to my phone. So, every time that someone emails me my phone beeps or buzzes. And of course, every time it beeps or buzzes, I absolutely must check it. Whether it's a letter, a bill, or a notification that something's ready for me at the library, I feel compelled to get it right away. Funny, since I never answer my phone. I really never answer my house phone (what's worse is that I rarely listen to the messages there either) and my cell phone gets answered 40% of the time. I guess I'd rather read than talk!
The deal is, the phone, the emails, the news and blogs I'm always reading are distractions. And frankly, thank god for them. Lately, I need to be distracted. A lot. A weaker girl would fall apart in my shoes. When things are going well, I don't necessarily jump toward the distraction. But today, I need it. So go ahead, distract me.
