The other day I got a chance to send a message to my friend JJ, the awesome blogger known as Unrepentant Old Hippie, who has gone for a ride on a sparkly pink unicorn.
Now I really miss her. Not just because she's such a BRILLIANT blogger for human rights. And we all love her. But also because she has supported me so much over the years.
So I told her it's OK to take a short break...because she deserves it. As long as it's a very very very very short one.
And I made a joke about how we're all blogging addicts.
But then I took this test.
And now I'm not laughing because it turns out I'm a hopeless junkie ...or ...um...Blonkie?
91%How Addicted to Blogging Are You?
Gawd.I KNEW my ass was expanding exponentially, but how SCARY is that?
All I can say is thank goodness I don't live in China.
China is likely to become the first country in the world to officially recognise internet addiction as a clinical disease as it battles with the increasing number of people who spend almost of their time in chatrooms, blogging or playing online games.
Mr Tao runs a "boot camp" in Daxing, a suburb of Beijing, one of several hundred across the country. During the therapy, Mr Tao, who built his career on treating heroin addicts, offers addicts counselling, military discipline, hypnosis and mild electro-shock therapy to help them reform.
Military discipline and mild electro-shock therapy?
Uh oh...no thanks. I guess I'll just keep blogging until I get a perfect score...or my chair collapses. Or JJ comes back from China to relieve me.
Anyone seen a sparkly pink unicorn?
It can't happen soon enough...
