Once again a fast draws to a close and a new one commences.
For my alternate blog, www.quickfast.wordpress.com, my coworker and I fast one thing a week. Last week it was text based instant messaging. Our fasts last from Wed-noon to Wed-noon, so as of Noon today I can G-chat and txt up a storm.
The main issue with this fast was being able to g-chat during work. Making a personal phone call while on the clock looks bad, but rapidly typing away looks productive. In the end I communicated less in general - but had more real human conversations.
