Log Cabin Chronicles

You know you've been logging on too much lately when

  • You just tried to enter your password on the microwave.

  • You now think of three espressos as "getting wasted."

  • You haven't played solitaire with a real deck of cards in years.

  • You call your son's beeper to let him know it's time to eat. He emails you back from his bedroom with "What's for dinner?"

  • Your daughter sells Girl Scout Cookies via her web site.

  • You chat several times a day with a stranger from South Africa, but you haven't spoken with your next door neighbor yet this year.

  • You didn't give your valentine a card this year, but you posted one for your e-mail buddies via a web page.

  • Your grandmother clogs up your e-mail inbox asking you to send her a .jpg of your newborn so she can create a screen saver.

  • You pull up in your own driveway and use your cell phone to see if anyone is home.

  • You buy a computer and a week later it is out of date and now sells for half the price you paid.

  • Your reason for not staying in touch with family is that they do not have e-mail addresses.

  • You consider second-day air delivery painfully slow.

  • You obtain most of your jokes via e-mail instead of in person.

  • You're reading this.

  • Even worse, you're going to forward it to someone else
