who couldn’t use a little more freedom?

If I am a little more spare in my blogging these days, please forgive me. I am hard at work on a top secret assignment that I hope to soon enough be able to share! In the meantime, I’m spending most of my computer time logged on to Freedom, the most wonderful software ever invented. And it’s free! (OK, they suggest a $10 donation if you love it, which you will.)

Basically, you log on, and the software asks you, “How much Freedom would you like?” and you can say anywhere from 5 minutes to 5 hours. “Enjoy your Freedom,” it will say, by means of farewell, and for the prescribed interval you have just set, you will not be able to access your email, or Facebook, or anything on the internet. Unless you force quit and restart your computer. And I hope you will have enough self-love not to do that.

Freedom has changed my life, and made me aware of just how much “work” time I spend screwing around, taking “Which Real Housewife of New Jersey Are You?” quizzes. (I’m Jacqueline, by the way, though I like to “be” Dina while I’m watching.)

Do yourself a favor and get some Freedom. It’s available only for Mac, though. Sorry, PC suckers!
