Have you looked at your partner recently? Have you even petted your dog? Is there an enormous ass-shaped crater in the chair where you have been sitting for the last three months?

Instant Messaging. It's the new crack, ya know. Are you addicted?

1. When someone tells you a joke, do you say "LOL" while remaining completely straight-faced?
2. Is your contact list so long you need to scroll through it?
3. Ever called out someone's username while shagging your partner?
4. Ever tried to persuade a friend to download messengers "so we can hang out?"
5. Ever taken a packed lunch to the computer with you?
6. Ever restricted your liquid intake in order to avoid leaving the screen to pee?
7. Ever considered moving into the bathroom as an alternative to the above?
8. Ever gone for a pee in the middle of the night, "casually" swung by the computer to check for instant messages, and still been at it at daybreak?

Are you addicted?

Funny that you say that......

I completely related to something that 5'er mentioned once in his post months ago about wanting to put a 9mm round through the computer.

Been there, too.....

I've intentionally kept away for two and three days, then four, just to keep it from consuming all of my time.

Good post, DT...good to see you back, too..
