Hey sugar…wanna date?
I live most of my life digitally. I didn’t go to my high school reunion, but I did make awkward small talk with former classmates on Facebook. I play Scrabble and poker all the time, only I do so from my desktop and not with real people. I have long since given up on vinyl and CDs, readily embracing the (ongoing) digitization of my music library. Given the way I generally live, It would serve to reason that I, like everyone else I know, would keep my calendar organized via Outlook or some similar digital calendar.
Can’t do it.
As long as I can remember, I’ve had a datebook. I like carrying it around…writing stuff into it…and keeping myself organized with my own hand-crafted reminders. When I “pencil in” a date, friends and co-workers look at me like I’m carving the details into a stone tablet.
Over lunch today, I walked over to Barnes & Noble to buy my 2010 datebook. Gotta be ready for the new year.
