world wide web.


i realized something this last weekend:
i'm an addict.

an addict to the computer.
each day, i go through the normal website checklist:
email...check.
my blog....check.
ellie's blog....check.
baby steals....check.
whiskey militia....check.
facebook....check.
my blog again...check.
my email again...check.
you tube...check.

the list really could go on and on.
and really, it is pretty ridiculous.
i realized just how ridiculous it was when i left my computer at my school this last weekend...and had to survive 4 whole days without it.

it was rough in the streets.

i had about 30 seconds with the thought: "this is actually kind of nice to just BE without being connected 24-7." well, that thought died as soon as i wanted to google my lesson for Sunday, or the phone number for Red Robin, or the movie reviews for Bedtime Stories, or a pizza dough recipe that one of you fabulous readers gave me a few months ago.... yeah, i can't live without the internet.

so to celebrate my addiction, i give you this hilarious video, brought to you by the wonderful YOU TUBE.



oh, and a picture of my cute Ellie, too (uploadable to blogger, thanks to the world wide web)

Ah, hahaha!
Ok. So I have migraine, and I am still laughing out loud. I took some strong meds and I am sure the head discomfort will go away soon... but I already feel better, thanks to you.
It was so nice to hear your voice yesterday! Have a happy day!
Besos,
MOM

I'm the same way! When we first got here to Baltimore, it took 4 weeks or something to get our internet switched to our new address and I never realized how addicted I am... email, blog, facebook, addresses, finding phone numbers, google maps. Kind of sad.

I'm with you on this one. Any down time I have at work, it's like... "Oh I better check my blog, or email, etc." It's pretty disgusting. If you find a cure, share the light and truth.

I agree. I'm so glad we live in times of technology. :)

Oh that video made me laugh! I so added that song to my playlist....I just need to watch his moves a couple more times and I think I'll be able to groove just like him.

Marce, you're the best. Seriously thanks for the laughs always.

Looks like everyone feels the same way you do! I always head straight for the computer as soon as Finn is napping because being on the computer when he is awake is pretty much impossible.
