My social network has crashed

Every night between the hours of 8:00 and 9:30, Facebook crashes because there are too many damn people on there.

Of course that is the time when everyone checks who has poked them today, or how many event invitiations in other states they have, or how many new friend requests they’ve gotten, but Facebook should know this by now and be prepared for the traffic.  How am I going to be able to see how many friends I have (i.e. how many people love me) if the site keeps “experiencing an error” ?

Short-term memory loss?

I just spent twenty minutes trying to remember how to log into the blog!  This is what happens when you become dependent on Firefox to remember your browsing history for you.

My brain is too young to be forgetting things so easily. In five seconds, literally, I had forgotten why I was on Facebook.  It doesn’t help that there are a million interesting facts in my mini feed to distract me, either.

Most of the time, my early-onset senility is covered by the fact that I have bunches of electronic devices to remember my things for me.  My Google calendar is synced with my iCal and my Plaxo calendar and my cell phone.  I have five To-Do lists in my planner, and I carry around a second copy of my entire phone book just in case.

Do not let this fool you- I do have a problem.  I can barely remember the conversation I had five minutes ago, let alone what I ate for breakfast this morning, and you can forget about anything that happened yesterday.  Or I can forget about it. Either way.

This does become a tad irritating when it comes to organizing things that have deadlines.  Things like papers. And projects.  And bills. Oh maybe that’s why there’s no gas…

Work? Who has time for work?

With all of the amazingly interesting time-wasting things you could be doing, who has time to even think about work?

I, for one, don’t.

I have my innards to twist in yoga poses, and portuguese tapes to blast on the speakers (O meu nome é LazyBrains. E o seu?) I also have Mandarin Chinese characters to memorize, and thirteen more of the books on the New York Times bestseller list to read. I’ve always wanted to learn how to knit, and I should pick up crocheting while I’m at it. Someone has to train the dog how to roll over, and knowing how to tap dance could really come in handy someday.

And of course, there is the ultimate time-waster: Facebook. I don’t think I even need to elaborate.

Here, waste your own time:

Brazilian Portuguese, Introduction

This is where that tap dancing’ll get you:

Train Your Dog to Roll Over My dog will barely sit for more than five seconds. She also loves fruit.

A book that is NOT a waste of time: The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay. (Disclaimer: This book is only for the insightfully-minded.)
