Please my dears, don't expect to hear a peep from my tomorrow. I'm participating in the 40 Hour Famine this weekend, to raise money for the needy in East Timor by going without something for forty hours. I have chosen to go without my sight. Most people go without food, or talking, or technology and other things like that, but last time, when I went without technology and furniture at the same time, I managed to raise only $5. Obviously, that seemed like a fairly poor effort. My idea was that going without something crazy like sight would be cooler, and then more people will sponser me, but I proved that theory wrong. I mean, $35 ish isn't bad at all, but I had a much more ambitious goal. Ah well, every dollar counts and all the five cent pieces eventually add up.
Anyway, I start at 8 o'clock tonight. It goes until midday on Sunday. I got myself a sleeping mask to effectively keep me from peeking, but obviously, the whole business will keep me from peeping too. I won't be blogging, or studying (silent praise), working (silent praise x2), reading or movie watching. I will be sitting about in my room, listening to audio books, (once my neighbour comes home so I can wrangle her for her collection), listening to music and talking to whatever friends of mine are home to call me.
I can't say I'm going to have fun, but I think it will force me to take a valuable time out. Thinking. What about? We'll see. We'll also see how many things I manage to break/run into/trip on etcetera. Wish me luck!
