Pet the Internet!
Howler Monkey just busted me playing a game on the computer. Not only was I trying to unlock pieces of a puzzle (so Atlantis could rise again!!) but I had open multiple windows including my Facebook page, Gmail, Twitter, and Absolute Write. Oh yeah, I was totally busy. Busy wasting valuable writing time.
I find that the Internet is like a needy cat, demanding to be petted. Pet the Internet! Check your email! Pet it! Feed it! It's soft and purring and oh so insistent. But it can suck all your time without conscience.
Howler Monkey's brilliant observance?
Me: "I know. I said I was going to write."
HM: "You should write on your laptop, Mom. It doesn't have Internet."
