People sometimes take vacations to "get away from it all." A friend just emailed a good litmus test to know when this has happened: When you’ve forgotten what day of the week it is, and you don’t even care. When this moment comes it’s magical and a sign you’ve truly disconnected from real life.

haha, in that case I’ve been disconnected for a while…
I think it’s really a test of whether or not you’re on a schedule.
I’ve been oblivious to the day of the week during both lazy summers and during periods of intense startup work. I agree it’s a magical feeling though, no matter the reason.
Happens every single time I am in Mexico or on a cruise. I love it.
Funny– when I forget what day of the week it is, I like to think it’s a sign I’ve truly connected with real life.
Probably why all my favorite vacation spots don’t have cell reception. Neat-o.
you have it backwards… that is real life, disconnected is asll the arbitrary concepts we impose, starting with “days of the week” and ending at your “oh so important” life
the yogis figured out life because of emptiness… we only figure out how to mess it up
