Are we that busy?


That people need a home phone (we do not), cell phone, a work phone, home email acct, work email acct, twitter, a blog or vlog (video blogging), personal web sites, Facebook, Myspace, Bebo, and all other forms of social networking sites? Do people still have/use pagers?

What happen to the days when you didn't answer a phone at dinner time? What happened to the days of coming home from work and relaxing with the ones you love - rather than coming home and checking your email, blackberry, etc?

Do people even talk face to face anymore?
Does anyone actually sit and hand write a letter anymore?

I really can't say much in the way of this, because I am one that has email, cell, blog (Duh, right?), twitter, web site, FB & MYS. But I don't think it is because I am busy, but more that my family and friends are that busy.

Yup yup - Glenn and I actually wrote LETTERS! Real, actual, written on paper and mailed through the USPS LETTERS to each other during our summer vacations in college! Possibly the last generation to do so.

Mike and I did the same thing 11 yrs ago, but that was 11 yrs ago.
