Reading, Baths, the Internet (too much of a good thing)

Mmmm, lots of half-thought thoughts buzzing around in my head tonight.  Have been reading some posts on other blogs, and their topics are making me feel “talkative” (blogative really doesn’t sound good!).  On both these topics there were some really interesting comments and points of view, so I thought I might add mine.

Topic 1 was Reading, or in fact, the reasons why they were NOT reading.  Made me realise that I am not reading as much as I have been previously, partially due to the fact I am doing more electronic stuff of an evening, but also I think, for me it is the fact that I am showering these days.

What? I hear you mutter, what is the woman going on about?  How does showering lead to not reading as much?  Well, my most favourite place to read is in the bath, it is quiet, it is warm and cosy, and I can lay marinating in soapy water for hours with a book.  What more can you ask of life!  True, I come out looking like a shriveled old prune, (after getting in as a big pink blancmange) but it is just so GOOD.

Topic 2 was about the internet, how there is so much to do, and maybe sometimes we need to step back and dial it down on the intensity, even – gasp- turn it off for a week!

For me this is not such an issue as I sort of have the opposite problem, in that I never know what to do on the internet!!!  It frustrates me as I know there is a whole world of content out there, but once I sit at the computer my mind goes blank and I just don’t know what I want to look at. I must confess to also being a bit of a neat/control freak, so I just really, really, really like to finish one thing before I go onto the next thing. Having too much going on at the same time is a big challenge for me.

……. and now for something completely different (thanks Monty Python)

  1. good shot,…………!


  2. Okay, I think I can help here. Just go to MY blog and spend all your time there! Hope that helps! 🙂


    1. Umm, not sure I can hold the laptop whilst I’m in the bath! 😮


      1. Bath shelf. Simple. 🙂 (Just don’t splash too much!)


        1. Oh, you are sooo helpful, I can see there are no excuses with you. 🙂 🙂
          P.s I have sometimes read the kindle in the bath, but always worrying about dropping it. Have tried putting it in a plastic bag whilst I read, but that was just horrible.


          1. Do you know I think it all seriousness there must be a market for some sort of elevated kindle holder when stewing in the bath. We may have hit on something!


            1. Would be great. I just got out after holding a 500page book, and reading for over an hour (or two), and my hands don’t appreciated it, at all. The Kindle is so light, but I am still reading lots from the library, and they really haven’t gotten much in the way of e-books here yet. If you come up with a fabulous, “patent pending” type of idea, remember I engendered it. It’s probably already out there somewhere, anyways.


              1. Ha! I smell lawsuits between us even before it goes to manufacture! 🙂


                1. Nah, you go right ahead, I like being the inspiration! 🙂
