Have you noticed that when  you have finished all the things you had to do at the computer : answer the mail, delete (or not) the surveys, click out the ads; consider new books and movies; do some event planning; write your blog...and so on.  Have you noticed when you've done all that, you don't feel like logging out? Is that why people play games? I gave up games when I bought my new computer and have rigidly avoided getting addicted again.  But I still want to hang around and putter.  Why is that?  

It's not just putting off the next thing you have to do. It's not just that you're comfortable where you are and don't want to move.  It must have something to do with the response you get from your fingers on the keyboard. Suddenly there are images and stories and information and yes, music and action. It's all very beguiling.

Right now I have to get dressed to go to a lovely luncheon, very soon, and I'm still sitting here.  Oh dear.


P.S. I love you.
