Blogaholic

I have come to the realisation that I have a problem.

Rob oh so innocently happened to enquire how on earth I manage to spend so much time on the Internet (he himself is a frequenter of an entire 5 sites in total, which are:
email,
Sports,
Sports (yes I know I included that twice, it is apparently a big deal),
Facebook and
Internet banking.

I know his enquiry was totally innocent because on Saturday he played Top Spin Tennis (I think he was trying to get into the mood for Wimbledon, after all Rob is as likely to win that particular Grand Slam than any Brit actually competing in it) for approximately 5 hours on his XBOX, so it's not like he's really in a position to judge me on how I invest/waste my time.

My reaction to his question?

Completely dramatic,

Incredibly defensive,

Overly sensitive,

and 100% Pure Ridiculous.

Seriously?!

The tell-tale unmistakable behaviour of a bona fide addict.

Obviously once I had come to terms with the fact that I have developed blog addiction. I heartily apologised (incidentally while he was still playing Tennis) and he graciously forgave me.

I now fully embrace my addiction (and add it happily to my list of deeply cherished things along with chocolate, Pepsi and Reality TV), after all it could be worse, it could be crack!

Yes, love, or heroin. Look on the bright side, that's a girl!

Ha! Kevin hasn't asked me too much yet...but it's coming.

hehehe! There are much worse things for you to be addicted to, and at least your friends benefit from your addiction, so, it's all good! ;)

I am right there with you. But my hubby can't pick on me much, he's secretly addicted too. I think he likes when we get comments just about as much as I do. I catch him quite often checking our blog, or that of others.

Women need to socialize, it's as simple as that. Since we don't see much of our neighbors these days, we're left to find random people in cyberspace. Whatever works.
I'm about to go spend the weekend with a bunch of women I've only spoken to online. Hopefully they won't be psychos.

I can totally relate to this post and I have to say that I get pretty defensive about it too. I never thought of it as addict behavior but now that you mention it I guess it is. :( Well, at least you aren't alone.

Me, in the back row, I have my hand up too. Blog addiction is a horrible, (umm wonderful) thing.

AMY said...

Yeah, it's heavily addicting. I find myself coming home, looking to see if anyone has posted or commented. Just wait until you have the 3rd child, your addiction will suffer!

Hi.
My name is Wendi.
I too am a blog-a-holic.
Maybe there is a support group out there for us.
Let me know if you find it.
And what time they meet.
