TBWCYL Day 284 - No, I didn't hear about that.

We made a 6 hour drive yesterday and it helped me complete my task with ease. I was supposed to ignore all media yesterday which I took to mean, don't look at, listen for, or acknowledge any news sources all day. I think this was only hard in that I usually check my comic book news sites at least 4 times a day to check the breaking news in the comic book world.

I started out the day by watching, "Ace Ventura, Pet Detective." There is no educational value at all in that movie and it contains no relevant info. I continued my solitary confinement by sitting in a car for 6 hours and listening to music and the Dallas Cowboy's game. This was only because the guy driving was a Cowboy fan or it would have been music only. I could care less about football.

We got home and watched "The Office" and "Fringe" so the only news I saw flashed by as I fast forwarded through the commercials. By the way, I watched one of these on a VCR which shows you how technologically behind in the times my wife and I are. We refuse to spring for DVR.

The only close call I had was while bringing "Fringe" up on the computer. We watch it online and my homepage is MSN so I had to hold my hand in front of the screen until I got the player up and running.

I don't think anything important happened yesterday because when I got to work no one asked, "Did you hear about..." so I guess I am safe from having my head in the sand.

That is all,

Are you sure you didn't accidentally peek at a news item or heading on MSN?

Nope, I was insistent on keeping my eyes peeled to only the address bar. Honest to blog.

You got lucky. Sometimes you have news thrust upon you at the most unlikely moments. One evening, I was hanging over a balcony having a cigarette, when a loon (or so I thought) ran out of the bar opposite the house, flailing his arms and screaming, "Michael Jackson is dead!!!!!!!!!!!!" I turned to my friend and said, "Look at that crazy drunk guy."

Ugh, that's like me every day. I hate the news.

Maisie, that is awesome. That does sound like a crazy person.
