I'm just gettin' on "for a minute"

I got up this morning, but haven't yet dressed.
My dishes aren't done, and my house is a mess.
Have not done my work, have not fed the cat,
Just on-line for a second, and popped in to "chat".

I used to watch TV, I used to cook Mex,
I think I remember...yeah, I used to have sex!
I used to walk upright, now I roll on my chair,
Tho' it causes the neighborhood children to stare.

I wanted to travel around on the Net,
Been too busy chatting to get on there yet.
I wanted to spreadsheet, word process, or paint,
But gettin' on with them is just what I ain't!

So much to learn and I wanted to, but ...
I'm too busy chattin' and splittin' a gut!
Talkin' and listenin'... is it such a sin?
Oh, gawd, what a fix I have got myself in!

Then up pops a name on my neat ICQ list,
Think I'll go out and give HIS tail a twist!
And in come a PM from some weirdo guy,
I cuss 'im, insult 'im, and tell him "bye bye"!

Is there a 12-step support group, or such?
For those of us folks who chat on too much?
If there was a group, I would like it just fine,
Except that it prob'ly would be here online!

Are there thereapists here? I think that I saw some
It's got me, it's got me! Its power is AWESOME!
It's my new computer, I've had it one week,
Now I look in the mirror and I see a "geek".

Or maybe a geekess, but I see the signs
Please help me, please help me, please get me offline!
Or better, please Email a burger and fries,
'Cause I'm staying ONLINE, at least 'til I die!!!

*******

My sister found this on the net somewhere and sent it to me so I guess the bug (sorry Bal) has got to her as well...ROFL

HUGS all

Rainbow Girl - Thanks for posting this.
It is delightfully accurate of a lot of us.
'NOT ME' though !

So cute.
So true.
I see me ...
do I see you?
(or is that ICQ ?)

When in the morning
I do awake
I swear each day
no more chatting I'll make.

Causes me to
more than once lie ...
but I'll only do it
till I up-and-die.

There is no group
that can fix that,
the never-ending
NEED TO CHAT !

I've given up
trying to keep it in tow.
If I'm going to hell ...
can my computer go?

LOLOL... Understand that! Between writing, posting and reading just in PIP I've had to give up... well... I don't quite remember, so I guess it wasn't all that important. Thumbs up from another who's been sucked into the vortex.

ROFLMAO.... Well, I'm quite sure I'd remember the sex part if it wasn't so far in the distant past! LOL. But the rest of this does remind me of someone... (name withheld to protect the guilty. *G*)
