Crazy Fast

I'm going to do something really crazy.
(Yes, another thing.)
I've been on a kick of crazy things in the last 2 weeks.
  • I put all our vehicles up for sale at the same time.
  • When a potential buyer drove from Provo to look at them, I changed my mind about selling them.
  • I contemplated several Jaguars for purchase.
  • I ordered 5 pounds of cheese wax and bought 10 pounds of cheese.
  • I decided to store a few hundred gallons of water in our basement.
  • I made many trips to the local thrift store to donate a plethora of belongings. (Would you say I have a plethora of pi├▒atas?)
  • I began waking up at 5:30am. On purpose.
So, a bunch of crazy things. OK, not so much cliff-jumping, mountain-climbing, fear-factor kind of crazy. More along the annoying, inconvenient, domestic line of nutty.

What does this say about me? Probably something.

Here is what I am doing next:
I am going on a Blog and Facebook Fast.


For convenience's sake, I went 24 hours into the future and compiled the most frequently asked questions regarding my fast.

FAQ's (from the future)
Why are you doing this?
'Cause it's crazy!

How long will you do this?
I don't know.

Will you be back?
But, of course! (end haute mustard-possessing accent)

What does this mean?
1. I will not blog.
2. I will not read a blog. (Exception: Googling for info to a project that happens to land on a blog)

3. I will not log into Facebook.

Are you crazy?
Please refer to this, this, and this. And this.
Or yes.

How will I get a hold of you?
I will still use my phone and check email.
I will still answer the door. (Maybe.)

I will learn how to read smoke signals.

How will I learn how to wax cheese?
Refer to above answer. Also, when I come back, I will publish such an educational post.

When will this start?
Tuesday. July 14, 2009. Specifically... now.

How will I know when you're back?
Put my blog onto Google Reader, and you'll be notified when I post.

Why are you telling us about it instead of just "sneaking off"?
This way is funner!

Are there any more frequently asked questions?

I don't think "cause I'm crazy" is a good enough reason for me. WHY??????

Landon has been bugging me about all the time I spend on the computer. I was just thinking about doing a SHORT fast myself. My big question is what will I do with all the extra time I'll have? What do you plan on doing? Are you going to be building some furniture for your front room?

Goodbye, my friend. You will be missed. I did such a "fast" over the weekend. Man, it felt good! Wasn't to good to catch up on a million blogs in google reader though. Hope you get good and skinny on your fast!

I've been fasting. Um the kind where you don't start with a prayer so you're just going hungry. My blog is REALLY hungry. Too bad, too much summer going on.

You're not doing it to be crazy. You're being a good example without being preachy. Ha! I caught you!

See you again someday.
