Addicted to blogging

As if it weren't bad enough before, now Blogger has added this nifty little follow feature. I used to do all my catching up by reading blogs at random and comment bombing certain blogs one post after another all in one day. Now I have up to the minute information about when my favorite bloggers last posted. I had fully planned on napping today and have yet to get my ass up from the chair cuz people keep posting and I don't want to miss anything...

I can just see it now, sitting in the group circle in rehab. Name your addictions...pills, booze, coke, meth, crack, sex, blogging. I would be the wussy one that squeaks out the "blogging" in a room full of people on full out and out withdrawals. That's a guaranteed beatdown on the "challenge course" for not having to balls to be strong enough to resist and get a grip on a stupid addiction.

Not that blogging is stupid...or addiction is stupid...don't get me wrong and I don't want to offend any crackheads, drunks, or angry moms ready to beat me senseless with laptops. I just think this is going to take some adjustment in how I manage my time on a daily basis. Who knows? This handy-dandy little tool just may make my life a little easier. We'll see. Now if you will excuse me, I have to go see a chick about a CAKE.

I spent my day on blogs, including updates to my own, instead of grocery shopping. We're having recrafted leftovers for dinner tonight and I hope DH doesn't notice....

I don't want a support group. I love reading everyone's blogs! Lets have a brainstorming meeting instead to get the really creative juices flowing :P

I'll be right there with you in rehab! So at least you won't be alone. And dear gracious I just found cakewrecks, laughed until I cried. It's my new black hole of time!

What can I say? I multislack so you don't have to. No wait...I take that back. I multislack and share so that I can recruit new people into my time consuming black holes to make myself look less like a lazy-ass. Yeah...we'll go with that theory...

OH yeah, how many nights have I been up late this week either because 1) i was blogging at work so I had to work at home or 2) i worked my a** off so hard at work I needed to catch up on my blogs at 2am! It's such an addiction!

Big Mama said...

I just want you to know that, as a crackhead, I found this offensive.

Persnickety Ticker said...

Limpy...as a person in recovery, I just have to say, come find me at a meeting and say that to my face.

To anyone else, we are just kidding.

Maybe.
