Slow Down Week Zoomed Right By Me

I completely forgot to put this up. Last week was the Official Slow Down Week as promoted by Adbusters:

and play an old-fashioned board game, or just sit and catch up with
family and friends. If possible, take a day off work — and then while it
away with a long walk and an afternoon nap."

Unfortunately for me, last week was too full of very important things to be done. Oh well, let's hope it comes back around next year and that my To Do list has no looming deadlines on it.
