10 signs that...

...you are obsessed by technology.

For reasons I can't quite explain, I didn't score even 1 point.

I'm guilty of about 5 of the offenses, but moreso by being addicted to the internet.

1. I definitely put blogs and such in front of breakfast (but not my coffee), and sometimes lunch. And I suppose I could do more productive things like shower, but it's not like my internet friends can see/smell me. :) Gosh, I've gotta pee, but I want to finish this post first.

2. Does collecting Dave Barry - signed propeller beanies and coco bras count?

3. If I'm awake, I'm refreshing something.

4. No explanation required.

5. Does not apply

6. Lol! *snork* :)

7-9 do not apply

10. I Kibby the Moat alot. 'nuff said. :)

wys, if you combined all of my family members we would score a perfect 10.

We plead guilty to the following:

1. Me, son Ethan

2. Me, Hubby, Ethan

3. Hubby, mostly.

4. Gee, wys...Do you and Leetie have actual names?

5. Me. Usually my cell phone only rings in the car but I was seriously embarrassed the other day in my kids' orthodontist's office when my handbag started blaring "Back in Black".

6. Ethan.

7. Hubby. I pray he's not dating someone else.

8. Me. I have this goofy hot pink pseudo Burberry Check skin on my cell phone that blares "Back in Black". Whoa, girl.

9. Hubby. Ethan & Emily want one, too. My Razor has enough personality (see #8).

10. Ethan. God only knows what he's talking about 80% of the time.

See my blog comments for info on the Toto site. And info on a low-tech gadget The Missus will want for her birthday.

Oh, yes, I know my #8 has a grammatical error. My phone blares "BIB". My phone's skin blares the latest Paris Hilton hit. God help us all.

#1. Forget to sleep? No, I just CHOOSE not to sleep. And I heinz a lot; doesn't ketchup count as eating?

#2. Accesories? I have the sexiest leather case for my iPod. Mmmmmm!

#3. Checking e-mail in an intimate moment. Um... *blush*

#4. You know your mates by their on-line handles? Leetie, Scat, Wysi, do you know what they are talking about?

#5. Well, just yesterday I was thinking how very nice my phone sounds as it is powering on...

#6. I've never actually said it! But I have thought it.

#7. Answered the cell phone during sex? No. Wait, does phone sex count? JUST KIDDING! But I WOULD answer the phone if I were on a date, because it would likely be my children calling.

But # 8 - 10 don't apply. In fact, I have no idea what they said in #10.

Hooray for me! I'm not obsessed; I only scored 70%!

Yipes! According to your Weather Genie it's 21 degrees F. in Canberra! Really, I never knew it got that cold anywhere in Australia.

You may find small satisfaction knowing that it's been slightly chilly and quite rainy here.

That, plus the fact that every nursery's summer flowers are past their prime already are seriously screwing up our $$$$$$$$$$$ (&%$*@&!!!) "Give the house that extra Wow Factor curb appeal" landscaping project.

It's so nice to know that we're making our house look its best for someone else to live in.

Yep, cold as....as.... well durn cold anyway. One of those mornings where, when you pour water on your windscreen to get the frost off, it freezes instantly into a sheet of ice that is twice as hard to get off.

I've got to admit that I probably should cop a few half points out of that quiz:

1) At work I can get so engrossed that I do occassionally end up wondering whether or not I can get the next paragraph done before I wet myself.

2) Not guilty

3) Guilty occassionally, but only if I'm already awake as sometimes happens.

4) Well, guilty I suppose, but I DO know my online friends real names.

5) My son does this, but I don't - that would involve WAY too much understanding of how my phone works.

6) I'm a chronic user of one emoticon - :oP - but its only one.

7) Like neo, I'd answer because of the potential for the kids calling, but I never date anymore.

8) Nope.

9) Nope. But I *do* own one of those palm-pilot like cell phones that does other stuff besides just being a phone.

10) Nope, moreover whoever thought html was easy?

So, what, about a 3?

Neo: you check e-mails at intimate moments? Or was the EMAIL the intimate moment? ;oP

Ah Wysi, you'll never know! I don't click and tell! ;)

wys, I click & tell but nobody wants to hear it.

OK, look, I've been married for 20 years. What's to tell?
