  1. Talk
  2. Get off the Web
  3. Get Healthier
  4. Leave the House
  5. Join some Clubs
  6. Say Yes
  7. Spoil Myself

It's the strangest thing.

I have time on my hands and not the slightest idea what to do with it. I find myself sitting at my PC clicking the Send/Receive button repetitively on Outlook as surely that can't be counted as using the web.

At other times I've decided that I simply must just check something on Wikipedia, say a review of the most hated Simpson episode The Principal and the Pauper, and that doesn't count as using the Internet - it’s research, even if I don't need that research for any reason.

I've now read all of Stephen King's Carrie, watched the latest Simpsons and Family Guy episodes (downloaded, but I wasn't actually using the web,) and even spent time with my Boyfriend.

Part of me believes that I will reap the benefits of this crazy experiment, gaining more time and a more interesting life and should therefore keep going. The more stubborn part however, is convinced that the web existence of myself is the only interesting thing about me.

Well... that and my expanding collection of Stephen King books.

yes, somedays can be like that--where you just get into a 'net mode' and mindlessly surf.There is a word for those who habitually do it "information junkies".Whenever i find myself bordering on doing that I completely go offline.Today was one such day :-) and all my online friends are wondering what happened to me!

so does blogging count as surfing or not? 'cause really you're just informing us of how your week without internet use is going, so it shouldn't count...

Ps - How come you managed to comment on my blog if you were offline? Are you infact the One?

&hearts - I'm having to be quite strict on myself so generally yes blogging does count, even if i occasinally lie about how long it takes.

tkkerouac - Yes. Yes he is...
