Have MacBook, will become less productive than ever

So, yeah, I’m completely mobile now. Wireless on a desktop Mac wasn’t all that impressive. Woo-hoo…I can access the Internet from anywhere in my house! As long as it’s my desk.

But now I can check blogs, do my banking and Flickr incessantly while watching “Cars” with Devin in the basement.

This is not, however, a positive thing. I do all of the above way too much as it is. I swear I’ve got some tic that says, “Lori, check to see if you have a new comment on your latest Flickr photo.” “Yo, Lori…you might have an email!” “Yoo-hoo, it’s time to check those blogs again. You never know when someone may have written some new and delicious entry about braunschweiger.” (Uh, no offense to my blogging pals. You know that’s all in jest.)

I really do not need another excuse to spend more time online.

What I need is to spend LESS time.

So I’ll have to use this thing judiciously. Maybe I’ll even crazy-glue it to my desk. That might be the best option. Eh?

  1. Sadly, I have this same tic. The RSS feed for Flickr comments isn’t updated frequently enough for me; I’m forced to refresh the Recent activity on your photos page manually every few minutes.

  2. I think maybe we should form a Internetaholics Anonymous…I struggle with this as well! Like right now…I should be cleaning our disgustingly dirty house, but I’m reading blogs! 😛

  3. Alas, I suffer from the same malady. I suppose creating an online support group for online addicts would be pointless, huh?

  4. I know! What am I gonna do when I go back to work and can’t neurotically check e-mail and blogs and read and comment and generally get nothing done?

    I love my Mac PowerBook too. I may have to take it with me so I can blog over my lunch break.
