How do internet activities (Fluther in particular) affect your everyday habits?

Asked by wildflower (11152points) April 27th, 2008

I was shopping earlier today and ended up buying organic cotton tops and a FairTrade tote bag….
Now, I don’t do synthetics, but I don’t generally go out of my way to buy ecologically/environmentally friendly either. I can’t help but think it’s at least in part due to recent Q’s on here:

I now only buy wild, organic jellyfish, not the farm-raised variety.

When it comes to jellyfish, I still prefer the genetically modified or synthetic versions…...they don’t sting/burn…
(Having had the questionable pleasure of getting a jellyfish on my back while swimming….there’s just nothing to change my mind on that one)

I saw a green jellyfish hat in a store and bought it! I even put an old pair of glasses on it. If I could I’d send you a pic, its so awesome!

Well, it has started training the way I think and approach problems as well as helping people with problems. It has also started my questioning lots of things I thought I had a pretty steadfast idea on before.

My daily schedule has been modified. Every morning its coffee and fluther instead of the depressing newspaper.

That’s so true gooch…..I’m doing that very thing now :)

I’m the same way. sometimes I am still in jammies at noon because I begin to fluther before I get dressed! It’s cut down on my use of the phone, because I get annoyed if I get a call while I am here. My friends seem to have noticed this because when they call the first thing they ask now is ” Are you fluthering?”
