I'm so jealous, I would love to go to Budapest. It's also nice to stop and remember sometimes that technology can do some great, positive things. I use it every day and love some of the things it has granted me the ability to, as much as I bemoan its overabundance at other times.
Yes. Its presence can be overwhelming at times. And it definitely doesn't help w/my tendency toward procrastination. But sometimes... it really is amazing. =)
