I certainly do. Far too much. Thank you for asking. I’m going to go read a book now. Either The Letters of Robert Frost to Louis Untermeyer or Italo Calvino’s Invisible Cities. Maybe some of both. And I’m going to turn off the computer for the night. Right now.
Pitcher? Catcher? Outfielders? What about the umpire? I’m not going to ask it. Not who. Not what. Not what you know or don’t know. Just tell me the name of that idiot on first that let the ball dribble through his legs? Long shall he live in infamy. On second thought. Don’t tell me. I don’t want to remember that.
Oh yeah my whole family does, But internet broke at the house a few nights ago and won’t be fixed till next week. So for the first time in maybe months we all finally sat down and had dinner and a movie together except my other sister.
This is something new in our world—really we are the pioneers. It’s hard to know, now, what is too much or too little. It’s a new phenomenon. And as the economy seems to be changing dramatically, who knows what role this new way of communication will mean for us in the future. We are the cutting edge here.
Yes, I’m sure I do. I learn a lot online, and being online is an important part of my professional life. But I’m well aware that I used to read more before the internet was such an important part of my life, and I definitely regret that loss.
Oh, for sure I do. When I get up in the mornings, I turn this on first thing. I have the speakers turned way up so I know when a mail comes in. Gotta go see who & what it is. I IM up to 4 people during the day. When our granddaughter comes out, she brings her laptop. She sits in the living room & we IM back & forth. It cracks us up. My husband, on the other hand, is rolling his eyes. OH WELL!!!
I LOL’D at this question- considering the obvious of Fluther.
I am going through a mental funk/seclude yourself from society in weird ways stage of life, therefore I sit my fat ass in front of this cop-out WAY more than I should. I am wasting life, but it’s just so addicting to do that these days.
i used to only spend a little time online
but i am spending more and more these days since i quit teaching…
seems like i spend hours just keeping up with different people’s progress…
my attention is constantly being drawn to something else
mostly all interesting :)
it’s like cities
i don’t really want to live in one
but that’s where all the interesting people appear to live…
Definitely. I can say so confidently because it cuts into things I need to be getting on with IRL. There’s a lot of dreck out there, but intelligent places like here (for example) are a black hole for me. Between the questions, looking at the answers, clicking links to related questions, checking out intriguing Flutherers’ profiles… yep, three or four hours disappear really quickly.
