Some of My Better Addictions with Daisy Harris

As I sit down to write this, I'm having to turn off my Internet access, and practically take Tweetdeck off my computer altogether. Why? Because a little hashtag called #romancekills is cracking me up, sucking my day away, and basically destroying my productivity one tweet at a time. What spawned this hashtag was a jive ass article about how reading romance melts women's brain, makes them unhappy in their god-fearing marriages, and basically is teh evil. Romance was an addiction they claimed. Like, y'know, porn.

I shan't provide a link. It was pseudo-science, religious-extremist drivel and not worth the pixels it was written on.

Anyhoo- the article got me thinking (once I was done steaming.) I considered how much emotional energy I happily wasted commenting and lambasting the article that I could have spent massaging my husband's feet or researching better ways to discipline my children. How many other time-sucks fill my day? Well, there are plenty. More than any good woman should be allowed. Here are just a few. 

1. Twitter, and Tweetdeck in particular. It's like big fat lines of social networking crack.

2. Blogging- because it makes me think thoughts, write them down, and -worse than that- share said thoughts with other people.

3. Smut writing- I'm going to hell for sure. I hope they've got the good porn there.

4. Facebook- I hate it. I love to hate it. I try to love it. I feel guilty when I don't check it. Facebook is the devil.

5. Grooming- wait...I should probably spend more time on grooming, not less. But showers and stuff are so darned time consuming and take precious hours away from teh smut writing! 

6. Firefly- there's really no reason to watch them again. What more could I glean?

7. INTERNET DRAMA- ooh, I loves me some big, juicy Internet drama. Especially when it's all hot and emotional, with an air of the forbidden. Yum!

8. Wait...have I mentioned Twitter?

9. And wine.

10. And UK Being Human-- but that's good wholesome entertainment!

What about you? What are your favorite addictions and time sucks? I can barely fill a top ten list! I need MOAR!

  1. LOl Daisy! I love you!

    :) I agree with a lot of those addictions.

  2. Thanks for having me on the blog, Louisa!

  3. I only recently discovered Tweetdeck (thanks, whatever evil person at OCC told me about it). HUGE time suck.

    My other evil vice is online games (solitaire, soduko, etc.)

    Maybe I will give up showering.

  4. Daisy -- Such a pleasure to have you visiting, and a fun topic. While you mention all sorts of social media, there's also good old fashion email. I'm a compulsive checker. Not simply because I've sent out submissions but there are times when people send *me* job offers!

  5. I love this post! My biggest time suck is Twitter. I screw around *way* too much. I also blog and browse stock photo sites for pictures that I can use or that inspire me.
