You Know You're Addicted To the Internet When...
by Stephanie & A.E. Cox

  • You leave your speakers on so you hear your "You've got mail!" notification.
  • Your pet has its own web site.
  • You coax your TAs/teachers into allowing you to create a web site for your project.
  • You wake up in the middle of the night to use the washroom and decide to give your e-mail a quick check on the way back.
  • Your friend lists on chat programs continuously reach the maximum number you can add.
  • You have a compulsion to 'skin' your chat programs.
  • It takes you twenty minutes to scroll to the bottom of your bookmarks.
  • You talk to your parents via MSN Messenger, even though they're in the living room.
  • You begin to say "L-O-L" instead of actually laughing.
  • You know what FTP stands for.
  • You see no reason for malls when you can do all of your shopping online.
  • You dream in HTML.
