addicted, who me?

This post is for that much suffering person in my life, the EH..(equal half)..I'm very fair that way..there can be no better halves..it has to be equal or none at all!!

Coming back to the word suffering..it's occurred to me, esp when i do those damn tags, that life with me is not exactly a bed of roses. There he must be definitely suffering more than me!

But this post is not going to be a mushy sentimental one, even if he deserves it sometimes. At the moment i happen to be a little miffed with him. He's thrown a very serious accusation at me. He said at dinner time..."I think you are addicted"...very seriously, very sweetly but said it nevertheless...


He's the only one i know who can be seriously sweet!!which means that i better take it seriously!! which in turn means, Ms Piggy comes to the fore and oils her arguing cords..

addicted, me, moi?? and to what may i know?..

to the net..came the reply



later,dwelling on this, i thought to myself..addicted, no way..but the seeds of doubt have been sown...

a little voice spoke...of course you are, aren't you always at your computer..

me...hey, that's just a few creative juices overflowing!!and i have to use my computer for my magazine work

Lil voice..."Rubbish...and the time when you didn't utter a word when he carried the laptop along on the holiday...and you even perked up when you realised the room had free wireless (since when have you been interested in wireless technology?)

me...whose side are you on, his or mine...so what if i did?...

Lil voice...and the look your son gives you when you lecture about too much Internet...Didn't he say, oh yeah!we all know who's using it these days

Me...hmm.....So everyone needs an outlet for those creative outbursts...and okay, okay, perhaps i'm a wee bit addicted...just a teeny weeny bit...

Though, it's not reached the stage where i sleep with the computer and i've not yet used it in the loo. Still,.... you think ....he could be right?(the horror of it all, if he turns out to be right!!)

There is no doubt that i enjoy blogging. Its through blogging that i've rediscovered a lost passion and your supportive comments make me want to do more.Thanks to you, wonderful blogger friends, i keep coming back for more. So its your fault...i think... :)

But now since it just doesn't do to have the EH right, i will be de-addicting myself. From now on I'm going to glance into bloville just five times a day. Remember I've called you 'wonderful' so you wouldn't say 'good riddance to me'now would you?

I'll be back...

soon...


like in a day...

Thanks for making me realize that I'm also a culprit!
You may be finding blogosphere seriously sweet!
Btw, pictures were too good.

Rambler said...

he he, you and addicted :)

I guess we all are addicted to one thing or the other, but then there is a thin line between being passionate about something and addicted..

I would like to believe we have high passion towards blogging :)

Preethi said...

hahaha.. are you sure this is the story of your life and not mine??!! loved the pic of the one in the loo.. and I found myself thinking... what a great idea... yikes!!!
But like rambler says .. its a passion not addiction!! Like I keep telling DH.. I just happen to be very fond of blogging!! :P
Btw, I wanted to write this very post and you beat me to it!!

Joy said...

While driving to work today morning, I was thinking maybe I would write a post on how blogs has become integral part of my life. And what do I see here :) My hubby had commented earlier what do I have to write so much and I told him he would not understand ! But yes, as of now, I am little bit addicted to blogging and it works like a good therapy for me.

UL said...

Really curious to know more about this magazine you mentioned, more details please? And addiction, bah! Me thinks it's jealousy from the hubby and the kids, afterall they dont get you as much as they did before..take care.

Deepali said...

3 things I would like to say -

1) I found the whole EH thing pretty interesting.
2) I know I create a living hell for people who have to tolerate (read live with) me.
3) I am Deepali and I am an internet addict.
