Not really off the grid as in no electricity, pails for doing the deed, and other real off the grid type of things, but offline for the week. According to my calculations or rather some count up timer program, it’s been like well over ~1840 days since I last really took a long break from being connected. First time that I’ve been away from my constant on, connected connected state of mind. Close to 5 years of no real down down down offline time.
For the next week, you can contact me via my digits if it’s an emergency. Your left you know what have better been severed, a bullet sticking in one of your body parts, or someone is already deceased. Anything else can seriously wait. All emails will be ignored, and unless something that needs to be addressed when I return, most likely will be counted for grins, marked as read, and archived or deleted.
While going off the grid to be a tourist in one of the most populated cities in the world is probably an oxymoron of bigger proportion than I want to get into here. Off the grid in this always on world is still off the grid.
That’s right I’m heading on a real vacation. Not checking in and keeping up with work stuff. Not taking care of that non-left you know what is severed emergency situation. Just chillin’, hanging with the peeps that matter time.
See you all again in week. Time to go live with the real world, all in, no Twitter, no Facebook, no email. Should be interesting seeing how that half of the world still exists. Yet … in one of the biggest cities in the world. :) While I may not connect to you personally or interact virtually, I’ll most likely still need to use maps for directions, and hit some sites for reviews, etc…
See ya on the other side with pictures, stories, etc… Have a status updated, tweetful, and email’icious week.
