    This is a great site. I'm definitely addicted, much more so recently than before. I'm on this site constantly. It's ok, though, there are worse things to be addicted to, right?

    We can learn from it and be encouraged by people who have similiar interests, problems, etc. I don't feel it's a waste of time for anyone. It's a nice way to relax after a long day at work.

    I agree Grrammy, it's also a nice place to vent! All of the opinions help me to consider other opinions and calm down when I think I'm right and I am not, or to find out that I am right!

    My boyfriend spends as much time on the computer as I do on his silly car forums..haha...or working on his own! So, I don't have to worry about him giving me a hard time. :)

    it's funny (well maybe sad) because I thought he was hinting he wanted to spend some time with me.......no, just thought I was spending too much time on the computer........
    But he is always the first one to ask who I was talking with tonight, or where do they live, etc. He just has to chime in once in awhile I think to let me know he at least pays attention what I am doing......unlike some hubbys who don't even know their wife is alive!!!!! LoL

    My husband is on a music forum from the time he gets home from work until around 7:00 most nights. After that, IT'S ALL MINE!!!!!!!!!!!!!! He never says anything about it.

    My boyfriend bought me a laptop for my birthday last year. He said it was to use at school, but I know it was really so he could get back onto his computer!

    Lap tops are a must if you're going to be cool at all! hAHAHA...both of our grown boys have one . One said he wanted it to take on the bus with him when he had to commute a distance to work! I thought that was funny. The other one wanted one when he was in college and don't ask me why! They are both obsessed with electronics and gadgets. They speak a different language!

    Because I found this and became addicted I can no longer tell my kids they spend to much time on the computer. Hey wait...I am the mom and I can do what I want and I can still tell them to get off every now and then...but then when I come back here I feel guilty for telling them to get off. Oh well, I guess I will leave them a alone and then they will leave me alone!

    My hubby has not bothered me too much about the time I spend on the computer. He enjoys hearing the goofy things that we talk about.
    I still need to tell him about Tom Cruise's failing "wiggler!"

    My husband thinks it's so funny that I will burst out laughing when I'm on here. When reading the restroom post or about turkey basters on Tom Cruise, it's hard not to giggle.

    I don't know what I would have done without these forums...especially all the nice teachers who are helping me (still) with my blog project and other problems and concerns that always arise.

    Now if I could only learn how to post my own avatars without buggin Amanda.

    :sorry:
