RSS is the new crack!

Today, I tried a little experiment on myself. I found myself with so many RSS feeds, that I wasn’t actually DOing anything. So, I cut myself off.

I did this once before, but it didn’t have the effect on me that it’s having today (thus, it wasn’t really worthy of blog documentation). Today, however, I find myself craving the browser. I feel the NEED to find new material; to keep up with the news; to make myself worthy of having a digital identity.

Screw that, I’m just bored.

I have contracts to finish which I am delaying. I have things to do. I am just craving the RSS reader. Man, I need help.

I dare you to turn off your RSS reader for a day… no… a week. RSS is the new crack. I am going through withdrawls.
