Hi! I am so excited to have author privileges, so I thought I would say hi!
This could not have come a better time, as Boyjangles is away for the weekend. So, it’s Saturday night, and I’m home alone eating lentils (for reals), drinking a somewhat shitty but very cheap wine, listening to chick rock (Paramore), and perusing the internets.
I’ve fallen into an internet rut. My basic routine when getting on the computer for a sesh is to check (in this order) Google News, Slate, nytimes, Groupthink, and reddit. With that base, I generally feel like I’ve got a fairly good handle on what is going on in the world. Then, if I feel like I need more vegetables, I check Salon and The Atlantic. If I need more fluff, I head for Daily Mail and Huff Post. Maybe toss in some Gawker/Jez. And then rinse and repeat. But, I’m bored with it. Sometimes there is nothing to read and find myself cycling through the same websites in a desperate search for new content. I need to shake things up.
So, tell me, what is your internet routine?
