I often have my computer turned on for about 15 hours!
I turn it off if I am going out for more than half an hour or so, and it is is a smaller second lounge room that I have, and I can hear when I get email.
Yes I am addicted to it! I am actually on it a lot of the time and often playing games, checking social network etc on my I pad when not on my computer - no wonder I always have sore eyes.
I am probably actually ON my computer for about 3 hours a day depending on what I am doing - i also do my weekly shopping on line.
I look at my computer a LOT. I love my computer. I email, play games, read news articles, pin on Pinterest . . . . or suddenly get it into my head that I need to know how tall *insert actor's name here* is, or the average rainfall in *insert country here* . . . LOL LOL.
I would like to say that I don't look at it at all - my fantasy! On any given day, I will look at it once before I settle down for the evening. On days when I have to complete things online, then two or three times.
If I wake up during the dark part of the morning, I'll check to see if I have mail. My husband's computer has packed up, so he uses my laptop when I'm going to bed, but is only looks at it for about 4hrs, then he'll leave it outside my room when he's finished with it. I'm on it for most of the day, sending emails to a few friends, looking at AA, which he says is an utter waste of my time. Looking at recipes, & when I find 1 I have the ingredients for, I'll write it into my diary page for the day I may cook it. Then I may move it to another day. I don't do Facebook, Cloud nor any of those ones. I'll Google a couple of things. If I'd remember how to sort my photos, I'd be doing that! I'd also like to download music onto my iPods, as I'm too lazy to go walking on my own without my music! So yes, I'm on my laptop for FAR to many hours a day!
I rarely use the actual computer as it is a dinosaur and slow and out of date. I use my iPad and rarely go out without it. I whip it open the moment a question pops up that I wonder about. If I hear a word I don't know, menu term, price comparison, fact check, book review, show a photo....I watch art videos. Checking email, Facebook, games and Pinterest occupy me for a couple of hours a day and I could have it on much longer depending on the circumstances.
You are right . . .we are a pair . . . . I have "Lost in YouTube" days. Hahahahaha. . . . and then one interesting fact leads to another and then you remember Johnny Quest from the 60s . . . . and the beat goes on. La dee da dee di . . . (00)
