Oh Internet, how we crave thee...


1. How much time do you spend on the Internet daily?
Oh.god. Can I just tell you my age instead? lol. Probably around 3 hours a day, which is way down and more healthy from how I used to be. Go me!

2. What are your favorite 3 websites?
1. Livejournal. d'uh!
2. Fanfiction.net (And old enough to remember when it was still cool)
3. Google

3. Do you eat at your computer?
Yes. God yes. But then I'd eat in the shower if I could find a way that wouldn't be all nasty... I Heart Food.

4. Pick one and why - Reading the news online or in a newspaper?
Reading online, because the information is more recent and raw. Unprocessed you could say.

5. How many people are on your instant messenger buddy list?
*blushes* Fourteen. Only five of whom I chat regularly with.

1. How much time do you spend on the Internet daily?
Ha. I'm a reporter, so I'm online all day long, either checking e-mail or researching a story, or looking up legislation. It's a constant in my life. Many, many hours.
2. What are your favorite 3 websites?
Probably Google, various LJs and various news sites ... on the second two, I don't think I can pick favorites.
3. Do you eat at your computer?
I totally do, even though I shouldn't. I do it mostly at work, and sometimes at home, but not as often.
4. Pick one and why - Reading the news online or in a newspaper?
EASY. Newspaper, hands down. Of course, I might be a little biased, since I work for one. Still, I enjoy having a hard copy ... of everything. News and everything else. I don't like reading news and/or serious business online.
5. How many people are on your instant messenger buddy list?
That I have no idea ... a dozen or two? I haven't been on instant messenger in a looooong time.

1. How much time do you spend on the Internet daily?

It can range between 10-15 hours a day. I am a programmer for a University who do a lot of stuff online, so I am on the internet all day, then a few hours at home.

2. What are your favorite 3 websites?

Hattrick.org, Livejournal.com, pvponline.com

3. Do you eat at your computer?

Often, yes.

4. Pick one and why - Reading the news online or in a newspaper?

I do both. I read the Sydney Morning Herald online when I get into work every day, then at morning tea, I read the local paper and the Australian if it's available. What else would I do at morning tea? :P

5. How many people are on your instant messenger buddy list?

Not as many as there used to be. I had close to 100 when I ran ICQ and MSN, now I only run MSN and only have about 40-50 people on my list.
