A Summer Fling

Like you, Betty has some summer goals: read a heap of books, do her album, complete her little jobs, research and write-up her pieces for a top-secret collaborative project, throw out 85% of the contents of her house without accidentally throwing away her dog, general soul-building, etc. But how will these worthy projects go? That soul isn't going to simultaneously harden and relax itself, Betty.

So Betty is adding one more project to the list, one she hopes will prove rewarding and interesting in itself. For one month, from July 11-August 11, Betty will deactivate her e-mail account. Doesn't that sound so short? It really is so short. Betty is looking forward to it. More details to come.

Exciting projects, Betty!

Haven't you heard, all the young kids say email is so passe. With your texting, twittering, blogging, and facebooking, you won't even notice it's gone.

Thanks for your comment, Nancy. You bring up a good and important point - what will be the parameters of the project?

I have to check my boss' email for her a couple of times a week so I am letting that be OK.

The whole point, though, is just to spend less time partaking of stupid bullshit on planes of reality I needn't be on. So I am thinking no Facebook too. That makes good sense. I'm not sure what stance to take on blogging, any ideas?

And I've already dumped my Twitter account because as you'll recall NOBODY WANTED TO JOIN ME IN THIS FUN ACTIVITY!!

Hey, I'm on twitter.

And I'm watching you.

Wait, you are?!!?

Do you update???!

If more of my friends did it, I'd do it, too!

Because friends are a plane of reality I ALWAYS want to be on!

Please advise about summer project.
