A guilty pleasure for sure. Because I check for it too frequently. And probably derive too much pleasure from reading a quick note. Growing up, a highlight was checking 6 days a week to see if I had any personal snail mail letters. I always had penpals (whatever happened to my 10 year penpal Elizabeth Winslow from Tewksbury, MA?) and I got so excited to see a letter for me delivered right to my home. Now that “letters” can be delivered right to my “office” via the internet any time of the day, I check every chance I can get. I mean, what *if* someone sent me an email that can’t wait? 🙂
Which makes me ponder my internet habits and wonder about others. When you go online, do you surf the internet or just stick to a few choice sites? I realize that I’m a creature of habit. I never surf the net. I check my email, check my bloglines to see if any blogs have been updated, update my own blog and then pop in on monoamniotic.org to see if any posts need attention. And I do this really, really quickly because I have to get back to real life, but the break is always enjoyable.
