Scored 45 - wonder if I was honest with myself?

Heh, heh, heh, heh.

Interestingly - I still won't buy , use Vanguard's secure site, or do banking over the net. Still more trusting of snail mail.

Go figure.

Step daughter in spare room - does everything over the net - finance wise, bill wise, and buy wise - whenever she can.

Scored 26. Thought it was silly, but of course, that's just for me. I do know people who would bust it.

I scored 31. I *do some online buying of merchandise as I hate to go fight the crowds. I just bought a slipcover for an old loveseat in my house and it looks great.* Never had to leave the house.* *But with all the news on identity theft, I may go back to paying cash at a walk in store. *

I scored 13. Guess that's why my post count is low.

A few of these questions did not apply to me as I am single so I scored a 28. I am pretty sure I should have scored closer to 40 - 50.

Re: I Can Quit Anytime...Really I Can

I didn't take the test, but I spent a lot of time here today chattering about a variety of stuff and so did DH. I was at work and surprisingly got a lot done. I was just on a roll. But a couple of minutes ago I realized it was after 5:00pm, DH and I are both on this site, and I should go home and talk to a "real" person instead.

Not that I don't think you folks aren't real; I would be bummed if you really are a bunch of teenage boys messing with my mind.

Not nearly as bummed as if we found out you were a teenage boy messing with OUR mind! Some of us would need a drink....

Martha, rest assured that the mind messers on this forum are not all teenage boys. Some of them are teenage girls (like JG)...

Re: I Can Quit Anytime...Really I Can

I kind of like to think about "real" life as 3D vs 2D here on-line. It is too easy to get away with stuff on-line that you would never try in person. You don't see the facial expressions or body language on-line to know the tone and intent of what is being said. It is too 2D to be able to see that. That is what these are for.. 8) : :P

Wow....that that is what you call excessive behaviour.

I don't say anything on line that I would not say in person.
I'm not kidding.

Re: I Can Quit Anytime...Really I Can

I scored a 25, but some of the questions don't apply to me because I live alone. I do think I would go out more, and spend more money, if there weren't interesting things on the internet.

I have pretty much stopped watching TV, and mostly only watch movies when someone else is around.

Practicing drums or reading takes up most of my down time. Drumming seems so simple. But it isn't; and for me at least it is totally addictive.

That's the beauty part. I don't care. I say what I mean and I do what I say. Always. Anyone who doesn't like it can go pound sand.
