Life without a phone or a computer

I'm not having a good week technologically. Both my computer and my phone decided to not work this week, so outside of my time in the office, I've been largely disconnected the last several days.

I'm sure I'll get both fixed/replaced soon enough, but it's been refreshing/interesting/horrifying to be disconnected. I found myself sitting with friends the other night and reaching to pull out my absent iPhone. I've taken a step back from our group evolution toward pseudo-cyborgs.

I've also found more time to read actual print material rather than clicking around Web sites, caught up on my Tivo, and used a payphone for the first time in years.

Time to go. I'm off to go get my phone repaired so I can end the technological equivalent of caffeine headaches.
