Gah. [livejournal.com profile] prickvixen just pointed out that there's a thing in your LJ user info to tell you how many comments you've given/received.

10,938 comments received, 8,980 comments posted



For someone who identifies as a hermit that's pretty sick. Even if my comment time were 1 minute per, that's 150hrs I've wasted and I would be that the average is easily 5 to 10 times that. Not to mention time spent posting and reading comments and waiting for replies (yes, not always but sometimes I'm pathetic enough I sit and reload things periodically hoping for responses)

And that's only LJ, doesn't count art sites and the like.

I've cut way down in recent years. The time I used to waste on MU*s and IRC is horrifying to contemplate. I generally don't bother posting on news sites or youtube or if I do it's a single comment and out. No response. I've limited my contact with flamers and been continually trying to reduce, but you guys are addictive. I want to grind you up and snort you to get that next rush of contact. More and more I've been cutting you with audio books and music or leaving a cartoon playing on a monitor while I'm working but I still waste a lot of time with LJ. (This post being yet another example)

I think I'm going to try a little psychological strategy. Change my password to some long string of gibberish and put it on a post-it note and leave it in my desk drawer at home. If I ever begin to remember it, I'll change it. That will keep me from posting and from reading locked posts and many unlocked posts are less interesting anyhow. I believe I'll also change my friends page to some eye-sore color scheme. bright purple and flashing green text perhaps.

I apologize if this means I go to less frequent contact. I'm still accessible by IM or e-mail, but honestly, I know I'm wasting at least an hour and probably more like 2 or 3 per day on stuff that I could be using for creative endeavors.

On that note, I'll still be posting art and photos because my ego is small and fragile and needs to be stroked periodically but I think there will be a lot fewer of these rambling thoughts and decidedly fewer political rants.

Love and Luck,
DV

Scary borg-like post!

I've spent a lot of my life as a terribly unsocial creature but I think I'd like to have more friends. So... Here's my LJ friends list )

Who's not on it that I should get to know?

Folsom Fair is on the 28th of this month. Suppose I should figure out what I'm not wearing to it.

Then about a week later is Silicon. Suppose I should come up with some sort of costume for that too.

So much to do.
