Cold Turkey: Day 1

Today is the first day I’m going Cold Turkey.  For one week I will only get my news from Twitter.  No NPR, no RSS feeds, No newspapers, no website (unless directed to via Twitter), no podcasts and no e-mail subscriptions.

Here’s how the morning has gone so far…

  • Didn’t have to get the news paper out of the driveway for fear of catching the headlines.  +1 for Cold Turkey – didn’t have to go outside this morning, too cold!
  • Couldn’t read the regular blind date article in the Globe magazine (my 2nd favorite part of the Sunday Globe; top fave is Bruins news)
  • I found that the Boston Globe must have 100 twitter accounts associated with their paper.  Check them out here (notice the four tabs)
  • Not having much success finding a good twitter feed for NHL video game recaps, much easier to go to  *sigh*
  • The wife is conspiring with the rest of twitterati to post fake news stories to throw me off the scent.

  1. Ha! Love that the Fairly Odd Mother is not making this easy – and that you are even doing this in the first place. Go get ’em…I’m off to catch the 10:00 news 😉
