You know you are addicted to the Internet when…
You kiss your girlfriend’s home page.
Your bookmark takes 15 minutes to scroll from top to bottom.
Your eyeglasses have a web site burned in on them.
All your daydreaming is preoccupied with getting a faster
connection to the net: 28.8…ISDN…cable modem…T1…T3.
And even your night dreams are in HTML.
You turn off your modem and get this awful empty feeling, like
you just pulled the plug on a loved one.
You refer to going to the bathroom as downloading.
You start introducing yourself as “Jim at I-I-Net dot net dot au
Your heart races faster and beats irregularly each time you see a
new WWW site address in print or on TV, even though you’ve never
had heart problems before.
You step out of your room and realize that your parents have moved
and you don’t have a clue when it happened.
You turn on your intercom when leaving the room so you can hear
if new e-mail arrives.
Your wife drapes a blond wig over your monitor to remind you of
what she looks like.
All of your friends have an @ in their names.
When looking at a pageful of someone else’s links, you notice all
of them are already highlighted in purple.
Your dog has its own home page.
You can’t call your mother…she doesn’t have a modem.
You check your mail. It says “no new messages.” So you check it
Your phone bill comes to your doorstep in a box.
You code your homework in HTML and give your instructor the URL.
You don’t know the sex of three of your closest friends,
because they have neutral nicknames and you never bothered to ask.
Your husband tells you he’s had the beard for 2 months.
You wake up at 3 a.m. to go to the bathroom and stop and check
your e-mail on the way back to bed.
You tell the kids they can’t use the computer because “Daddy’s
got work to do” and you don’t even have a job.
You buy a Captain Kirk chair with a built-in keyboard and mouse.
Your wife makes a new rule: “The computer cannot come to bed.”
You get a tatoo that says “This body best viewed with Netscape
You never have to deal with busy signals when calling your
ISP…because you never log off.
The last girl you picked up was only a jpeg.
You ask a plumber how much it would cost to replace the chair in
front of your computer with a toilet.
Your wife says communication is important in a marriage…so you buy
another computer and install a second phone line so the two of
you can chat.
As your car crashes through the guardrail on a mountain road,
your first instinct is to search for the “back” button.
Anyone guilty of any of these;)
