Time Shifting

Time Shifting

Have you noticed how dark it is in the mornings these days? The mothership is shifting positions, it seems. Man, it's still pitch black at 7:00 am. When the heck does the time change?

Yesterday morning, I was up early. Yeah, I know, what else is new? The thing is that, when I woke up and started making coffee, I realised that I was out of milk. So, I threw on some sweats and headed out to the all-night convenience store. I bought some milk for my coffee, and a bag of these little brownie things, which were on clearance — half price — so who could resist?

So I'm eating a brownie for breakfast. Well, it's not a brownie, really. It's one of those brownie bites, or whatever they are called. I have no idea why I bought them. I'm not a big fan of cakey stuff or chocolate even. I'd offer you one, but it could only be a cyber brownie, and I'm not sure I can whip up one of those for you.

Funny what we do on the Internet. We shop, we chat, we blog, we research things, we read news, we watch videos ... all manner of stuff. And here I am, pretty much unable to offer you a brownie. Damn the limits of technology.

I guess there's something to be said for real life, after all. If you were here in real time, we could eat the whole bag of brownies and have tea or coffee together, before I kicked you out ... so that I could get back to my computer and get completely unreal again.

I love my unreality ...
