a wired life

Wednesday, August 6, 2008

Taking care of our eyes: that was one of the news features last night. The doctor being interviewed said that staring at a computer for two hours straight will surely ruin our eyes, leading even to degenerative myopia and glaucoma. Two hours? They must be kidding me. I spend at least fourteen hours in front of the computer! The first thing I do when I wake up is to go online. When I get to work, I can’t but spend most of my time staring at the computer. And when I go home, which takes me around five minutes, I go online again. No wonder I can’t see without my lenses anymore.

But what can I do? I live a wired life. As much as I want to exist without a computer and the Internet, I simply cannot. Only through these does my cave lets in a little sunlight.

Weird is an anagram of wired. Axl Rose, lead singer of Guns N' Roses rock band, is an anagram of what? :)

Same here. when i started a wired life, the daily cycle of sitting and staring at the computer, and the lack of physical exercise, expanded my originally flat belly :-) and my perfect 20/20 vision is no more. A wired life is no good for health and beauty?..
