I have issues

Our internet at the house has been down for days! A nightmare as well as a wake up call. Hello, my name is Annie, and I love the internet more than I love most anything. So as not to make any hard feelings I won't be specific but let me be clear when I say I am passionately in love with all things internety. More so than I am about other things. (No Honey, not you. I love you. Or Georgii. I love Georgii too. But other.... stuff.)

In my absence however I was able to catch up on some reading (magazines, not books, but still words printed on paper so good), take care of some things around the house, and decorate the store. Its so festive! I took pictures of the windows in all their Christmas glory but dont have them on me to share. A more patient person would have waited to post until they had all the necessary materials but wild horses could not keep me away. Not today. It is a Christmas miracle that the nice tech man was even able to fix the wildness that was happening in our network and I want to reward it (not him) for cooperating. So, thank you Lockwood Network. Thank you for allowing your code to send signals to other codes and wireless airports and to let the speed of our signal not over power the stability of our system. Thank you also for things way beyond my comprehension. Why and how you work I'll never know but you do and that's all that matters.

Hello my name is Susannah and I am also an internet addict. Sometimes I want to lay down in bed with the www, cuddle in and intertwine our feet. I want to kiss the internet both tiny little pecks to let it know how very much I cherish it as well as big slurpy wet kisses behind closed doors. My husband is jealous, and yet I cannot stop.

Glad you're back!

Hi...during moments of boredom and/or angst, I click the "next blog" button on my own blog (, just to see what's out there...your blog appeared! It was an enjoyable read, and I now (officially) miss LA (never thought I would say those words). Take care, keep writing, and enjoy the internet!

Annie, this post has really affected me...I'm so glad you have started a string of people coming out to admit their addiction.I too feel the need to acknowledge my internet addiction. There, I said it.

addict! i think my internet being down is just about the only thing that could me out of my PJ's and into the coffee shop first thing in the morning. that and no coffee in the house. the two addictions seem to go hand in hand :)
