What is that word...
You know, the one where you're tired, but you can't sleep... where you stay up all hours of the night blogging when you should be in bed... oh come on... you know the word... help me out here... the one that describes how hard it is to turn the computer off without checking to see if there's just one new comment... what is the word?
OH YEAH! Let's try OBSESSIVE... and maybe we could add a little COMPULSIVE on there. Yeah, that's what I was thinking of. Okay... just gonna publish this, check email, and then come back to see if there are any other OC late night people who just want to look one more time... :D

hi melissa: good morning. you made me laugh.

i am sooo there. i need to figure out a way to not be so obsessed!
i know i am obsessed/addicted to my computer because my family is taking a motorhome road trip (from alaska through canada to washington, oregon, nevada, arizona to visit family) jun/jul for 3 1/2 weeks total ... and you know what i am thinking? so bad. how am i going to live without computer access for 3 1/2 weeks?!?!!? i am thinking how am i going to innocently slip in the idea, honey, let's stop here (while secretly hoping the place has one of those internet cafes that i could borrow for a few minutes). minutes? who am i kidding? you know i want more than just mere minutes! i am so addicted. i feel like withdrawal symptoms when i am away from computer access for too long (you know, just a few hours). but i am enjoying this so much. will figure out a better balance of this soon enough.

the word is obsession girl :) i can sooo relate to you on this one.

come see my interview questions that i posted today. kimberly interviewed me and it was fun. now, i am trying to answer "elizabeth"-w's interview questions to me today -- she asked me some good ones that i gotta ponder before i put words to screen.

what do you do about your obsession with this when you are out of town?

happy day to you :)

ps. the word verification reminds me of yowey batman! holy macaroni batman!

Oh, yes! We all know that. Maybe you should get the comment alerts via email- then you could cut down on one step! ha ha.

Heather said...

Ok. So to clarify- we all know about being obsessed with blogs. After all, we are bloggers.

After reading my comment I felt like I was confirming that we all knew you were a crazy comment checker- not what I meant.

I'm totally an obsessive blogger and email checker too. Welcome to the club! LOL

Jessica said...

Melissa said...
