A cry for help! lol

Ok, My name is Kimberleigh, AKA Demandnlilchit and I am an AOLaholic!  Wow, how liberating is that! I am also here to admit I  am in need of an AOL 10 step program. (Breath Kimberleigh breath!)

Here I was sitting at my computer this morning, updating Windows EP, going through some photo's old and new, trying to pick out a few photos that I wanted to post to my journal and whammo! I lost phone service (Yes, I'm still on dial up! lol I don't have the need for speed, just reliability.) I quickly grab the house phone and Nutn! Nada! So I grab the cell phone, dial the home number and I get the recording that my home line is being checked for trouble in the line.....PANIC! PANIC!! PANIC!!!!! Breath in! Breath out!

I call the phone company for an update, I'm told the new construction down the street hit the line and that they have been called by other neighbors effected by the outage (hooray! for the neighbors) and a repair truck is in route! Hip! Hip! Hooray!

Check the phone line, look at the clock, check the phone line, look at the clock..(repeat 20 times) Oh what the hell! Do some laundry, eat some oat meal, pay some bills and half an hour later........dial tone!!!!
(happy dance through family room while modem is connecting)

Human behavior is a very strange thing, if I didn't want to be on the computer (my choice) I'm ok with that, but the minute the choice is taken away from me......panic!!! outrage!!! Same thing with my truck, it can sit in the garage for days and I never think twice about it, but the minute it's at the repair shop....panic!!! outrage!!! But I need me truck! I can't be trapped in the house! I'll go crazy!!! lol

Human behavior is strange.....indeed!

I used to fuss at my friend because she was online 7 hours out of the day.  My computer is on constantly now that I have broadband.  I don't log off just, I stay signed on to AOL so that if anyone says anything about the time I spend online, I can always say... 'oh, but I'm not always on the computer, I just leave it on all day'.
