Am I Abnormal?

I am sitting here at work pondering the ways of the world and reading some blogs (now before some of you get all snippy this is between doing what I am supposed to be doing) and it got me to wondering...........

* Cue Sex in the City Theme Song


  • At home I don't have a wireless internet device we are plugged into the wall. (not dial up though thank God)
  • I don't have a laptop I have a PC
  • We still use windows xp
  • My mobile phone is not a "smart phone"
  • I have an iPad but it is a work one and kept at work
  • We don't download movies or tv shows
  • If the power goes off I need to read the DVR manual to reset the time
  • I still have a stash of VHS movies sitting around
  • MOTH will not do internet banking or pay bills online
  • We don't listen to music at home through an iPod we still use CD's or "gasp" listen to the radio
  • I accidentally found out how to "series link" a tv show on my DVR
Do you sometimes feel that technology is just going way to fast for you to keep up with?


  1. Sometimes the "old way" is good...less hurry and more relaxing for me. I can say yes to some of above...

  2. If YOU are abnormal, so am I!! In your list I see only a couple of differences between us. Cheers to us...the abnormal ones!

  3. I love my "toys" - but that doesn't always mean I understand them. But I sure love them. While I don't get the "latest and greatest" every time something new comes out, I will admit that I have a lot of things you don't!!! BUT I do still have a lot of VHS and a TV that I can still play them on-built in player!!! LOL

  4. Well, we can just be abnormal together!

  5. I am the most untechy person (I'm a complete luddite) but here I am living in the Bay Area which invented all these things that I can't use - but we have them anyway. If one of the kids go out, I am completely lost. Which is why i've gone back to reading books....

  6. I must be more abnormal than Ipad at all, no dvr....the rest are about the same!!!! Sometimes I feel we already have to much modern technology......I like the simple life!! (but oh I would miss the internet!!!!)
