Where Is Astro With My Newspaper?

I have become George Jetson. This was my morning:
-The cell phone alarm woke me up with a ringtone.
-I walked out to the living room--turned on the fireplace.
-Pressed the remote, on goes the cable box and TV.
-Over to the coffee pot with the automatic timed brewing feature.
-Time to check personal email, then read the newspaper online.
-Missed a text message last night, read it this morning.
-Checked work email and today’s calendar online.
-Checked my blog, got a comment! Thanks, Troy!
-Got ready for work, put my smartphone on.
-As I got in my car, the bluetooth turned on, and I talked to my assistant handsfree while I drove to work.
-My car tells me the outside temperature is close to freezing. It has a special chime for that in case I hadn’t noticed.
-Did a web-ex conference call with 19 people around the state: it was a combination phone conversation, online chat, and a common screen view of the work...we were talking about...what testing.

Tomorrow’s Saturday. I’m unplugging and going on a bike ride with my friend. If you need to reach me, leave a message with Rosie the Robot.

I wanted to contact you to ask if you had carefully considered your decision to unplug (very un-Jetson like) but I didn't know whether to text, email, or leave a voicemail message with Rosie.

Anyway, I hope you enjoyed your bike ride.
