Mac confesses

I blogged about this yesterday but this is just sort of a follow up. I had decided that I wouldn't refer to myself as Mac anymore and use my name. Someone from close to where I live recognized my eyes, he confirmed his suspicions by reading my blog and there was my name. I posted it, I am to blame. But now I unposted it except in about 1000 other peoples blogs where I responded and signed the response with my name. Why is this such a big deal? Why do I want to maintain some degree of anonymity? Well there is my job and my kids but I have a confession to make. I am on the run. I have committed a serious offense. I know you're mouth has dropped open! You're thinking our Mac, a common criminal? Say it ain't so! I am an escapee from reform school. I'm not really 45 years old. I'm 18. I don't have my own home with a handy computer or two, no I blog from public libraries. What's worse is what I'm about to tell you. I was sent to reform school because I was addicted to blogging. I tried to tell them it's a disease like alcoholism or a gambling addiction. They didn't listen, they just threw me in the slammer. I've been forced to go to BA meetings, no not cause I'm a bad ass, Bloggers Anonymous. I did the first step, you know like all 12 step groups do. I admitted I was addicted to blogging and my life had become un-manageable. That was easy. It was easy for everyone to see. I couldn't get anything done for blogging nonstop. My schoolwork was poor, my grades were slipping, I mean how did I think I was ever going to go to UCONN with grades like those. I went to BA everyday and my life was getting better. I had time to do my class room assignments. I had a boyfriend. My parents were happy with me again. But then one day as I was walking home from school, I walked past an alley. This guy was there. I heard him say "psssst, hey kid, over here." I knew I should have run as fast as I could. I should have called someone in the program, but I didn't. He said, "I got something you need, something that's gonna make you feel so good." "Follow me," he said. We went into a Starbucks, you know the one on 150. They're a wireless internet hub. He opens his laptop, he says, "you're gonna thank me, I promise". He hits a few keys and a website pops up. It was AdultFriendFinder, I thought he was just some kind of perv, not a dealer. I got up to leave, he grabbed me by the wrist and said, "Wait, it's not what you think." He double clicked on the section that said Blog. The blog page came up, I gasped. I was shaking. I KNEW I shouldn't have done it, but I clicked on the blog at the top of the list. There was MzHuny. She was so funny, had me laughing. He said, "I tell ya what kid, go home and try it out, if you don't like it, you don't have to pay." I knew I was an addict and that soon I would need more. I saw blogs with pictures and blogs with big fancy typing and soon what I had just didn't give me the thrill that it once had. I NEEDED more. I went back to the alley, looking for my "friend" Bill. I heard someone say "pssst, hey kid over here!" I thought it was Bill, but it was an undercover cybercop. I ran as fast as I could. I'm still running. I no longer dream of going to UCONN, hey who wants to go there, bunch of losers! My boyfriend won't see me cause I'm addicted to the "stuff" again. My parents threw me out after they caught me blogging about the living room furniture. Now I'm out on the street, turning tricks just so I can pay for my membership. I'm sleeping in shelters and living in libraries, so I can use. I want to help those parents who think that their child might have "the monkey on their back." These are the signs you need to look for:
1) Extreme agitation when someone else is using the computer.
2) Strange hours of computer use, if they're up when they should be asleep.
3) There is a suspicious book such as a thesaurus or dictionary on the computer table.
4) You walk into the room where they are on the computer see them move the mouse and the screen they were on closes and the weather pops up.
5) You hear them laughing out loud while using the computer, this usually happens when reading someone else's blog.
6) You hear them talking while typing. "thank you so much for visiting my blog", about 15 times a day
7) The teacher comments on their report card that while their vocabulary scores are up they aren't up on current events.
The teacher also reports that she sees your child playing the air keyboard in class.
9) Your child has dark circles and bags under their eyes.
10) They suddenly begin squinting to see because of staring at a monitor screen too much.

If your child elicits any of these signs contact a psychiatric professional immediately!!! Don't let what happened to me happen to your family!

I really didn't understand that post at all. It seemed truly obsessive. (Please excuse me while I take electroshock measures to stop the twitching...I was away from my computer for approx. 30 minutes...)

LOL! That was too good. I especially liked #3, #7, and #8.

Oh, the reality!

I'm addicted, too. Gotta get my fix.
