Someone asks you what your new year’s resolution is and you answer 1280 by 1024 at 5:4 aspect ratio.

Your spouse says communication is important in a marriage… so you buy another computer and install a router so the two of you can chat over the DSL connection.

You have a friendster, a myspace, a Yahoo360, a multiply AND a facebook account.

You have several email accounts with free email services that look like yourfirstname.lastname@yahoo.com, yourfirstname.lastname@hotmail.com, yourfirstname.lastname@gmail.com AND yourfirstname.lastname@eudora.com

You have a firstnamelastname.com domain. (courtesy of Rommel)

You have a website/blog/photogallery on your firstnamelastname.com domain.

You have a day job sitting in front of a computer, and the first thing you do when you get home is turn on your home computer.

Your idea of addiction treatment is sitting at an internet cafe with a dial-up connection.

You call your kids to dinner by sending them a message on an instant messaging program.

Tsk tsk, if you see yourself in any of the descriptions above, take heart.

I’m addicted to my computer too.

You’re addicted to your computer when…

  1. I’m not guilty … I’m in denial 🙂

    How about having a firstnamelastname.com domain – does that count? We also don’t call the kids for dinner using messenger, my wife simply ask everyone to clear off all laptops in the dining table.

     

  2. Hi again Rommel. I was digging around in my old stuff and found this, circa 2005. I don’t know if it’s an addiction or a family trait, but now my little girl plops her behind in front of MY (not hers) computer in the morning even before she’s had her hair combed and her face washed … nde na ata maganda ire …

    ABBY!, at last nag comment ka narin. adik ata naman tayong lahat sa opis eh, especially now that we’ve discovered smartbro. online ba si arlene, group chat tayo!
