i'm an online freak!!!

i'm such a internet addict ...

i Google practically everything ...
i read the papers online ...
i check the dictionary online ...
i shop online (eBay + other US sites) ...
i talk to my friends online (MSN/Google Talk) ...
i keep in touch with friends online via email (no more snail mails which i used to be a fan of) ...
i spew #@*&!* /rant/rave .... aka blog online ...
i check street directions online ...
i check the Yellow Pages online ...
i watch cable TV online ...

Yes ... i'm an online freak!!!

- the first appliance i turn on when i reach home is my laptop ...

- i feel disconnected when my broadband is down ...

- i feel uncomfortable if i don't check my (personal) email account(s) within 24 hours ...

- i feel shattered when my laptop crashes .. it's as if my whole world has come crashing down ...

- i prefer MSN-ing to SMS-ing ...

- my main source of entertainment are from internet sites (not porn, you dirtbag!) rather than the teevo ...

anyway, the point is ... it suddenly dawned upon me that since i read the papers online, i hardly have access to print advertisements nowadays ... i have no clue as to what the latest sales or promotions are ... new property launches ... the newest mobile phone in the market etc ...

all that i am privy to are pop-up ads ... which i immediately terminate and ignore ...

such is my internet life ...

which explains why i pay more attention to print ads when i lay my hands on newspapers :)
