Cold Turkey

I don’t know if I’ve ever confessed about my terrible gossip addiction. I’ve been going through cycles of this for years, where I read a bunch of gossip online. Then I’ll decide that I’m rotting my brain and wasting all this time that I could use for ANYTHING else and make the world a better place. So I’d give it up. Mostly.

And then it would creep back and then I’d cut back. And so on. And so on.

And the problem with reading a lot of gossip and trashy sites is that you develop the most screwed up view of the world – that it’s nothing but awful people who don’t do anything worthwhile except get seen on trashy websites. (You also develop this view if you read comments. Don’t read the comments.)

While we were in Montreal I didn’t have my computer so I didn’t read any of my sites for 10 days. And when I got home I decided to keep going. I have been TMZ free for over 3 months. There should be a chip for that! I haven’t heard one thing about [terrible person] or [other awful person] this entire time.

It’s amazing. I recommend.
