    HELP! I'm chatting online and I can't get off(line, that is)

    Ever since I joined this board a few days ago, I have been stuck to it like glue. Anyone think of starting MiceChatters Anonymous? Every spare moment I have I am glued to this computer! This does not bode well for the state of my home.

    Sorry, there is no known cure - this disease gets even worse once you come to a meet-up......you can't escape, there is no hope of rescue - you'll just have to put up & get used to all of the friendship, fun & laughs that you'll discover here......

    I used to think it was awful that life was so unfair, then I thought, wouldn't it be much worse if life were fair and all the terrible things that happen to us come because we actually deserved them? So, now I take great comfort in the general hostility and unfairness of the universe........

    Don't fret just yet. The addiction fades just a bit after a while.

    That's good. I am supposed to be a stay-at-home mom, but for the last few days I've been more of a ,"go play, I'm busy on the computer" mom. Deplorable.

    Lafantasma, you are discovering the joys of MiceChat addiction. In it's more advanced stages, it can become a problem, but for now, just enjoy it! And Robert951 is correct, it gets even worse once you go to the meets.

    At least you don't run the risk of dying from it like Cancer, or the Ebola disease.

    The addiction was more of a habbit for me while I was in school... now that I've graduated and work full time, with a computer on my desk, my posts have tripled, and so has my reputation... I can't focus, I check for updates every hour or less... I'm gonna need some group therapy when I come to one of the meets in late September.

    Its more of a "see what my friends are up too and what do that have to say today" thing for me, especially since I know so many first hand. I'd venture to guess its a LITTLE easier when you dont know anyone from the board mano y mano (I said a LITTLE - lol)

    I can quit when I want to ...really....honest...I will. Starting.....right.....now. See.. I quit!. I can do this! I broke the addiction!!!.... Oh wait...am I still typing? Dang.

    The only cure is to take your computer and chuck it out the window.
    Marge: Barnacle Bill's Home Pregnancy Test? Homer, shouldn't we have gone with a better-known brand?
    Homer: But Marge, this one came with a corn-cob pipe!
    Marge: [reading from the test box] "Ahoy, Maties! If the water turns blue, a baby for you! If purple ye see, no baby thar be!"
    Homer: So, which is it? Blue or purple?
    Marge: Pink.
    Homer: D'oh!
    Marge: "If ye test should fail, to a doctor set sail!"

    Re: HELP! I'm chatting online and I can't get off(line, that is)

    It took me six months to hit 1000 posts, but after spending five days in the company of a dozen or so MiceChatters for Disneyland's 50th, I posted my second 1000 in a month.

    I these people. I had so much fun with the MiceChatters in person. I can only guess how much more I'd post if I lived down there and was able to go to meets more often.

    Of course....if I was at meets, I'd be posting less.

    Also, if I lived down there, I'd be stuck in traffic all the time. Posting even less.

    I'm addicted, but that's okay.

    Ha ha, yeah right.

    That didn't work for me, I just ended up annoying my neighbor's. They finally asked if I wanted to move in and pay rent!

    I know! It's worse for me. I am still in my PAJAMAS! It's noon! I'm starving. But my kitchen is under construction, so eating involves leaving the house which I can't do in my PJs. So I just sit here hungry. And typing. It's really getting pathetic, I tell you.
