    Yes I have also gotten "re-addicted" to the FORT arcade!

    I haven't even made it to the arcade - I'm addicted to the Fun and Games section!
    I never met a piece of chocolate I didn't like.

    Had to re-open this subject -- while working yesterday, I noticed the part number on an invoice I was paying. FRT19HV. My mind automatically read it as FoRT.

    Well, my boss just stuck his head in my office to tell me something and I was actually annoyed because he interrupted me reading/posting on the FoRT.

    Sometimes at work I time my FoRT visits to when I know he will be otherwise occupied.
    I enjoy the escapism of reality television. Beats the heck out of worrying about your REAL life!!

    As long as the boss thinks you are intently reading something for work, it's all good!!
    Yup, with donuts!!

    I can't get on FORT at work as I don't often work near a computer. But sometimes when I actually am at a desk working, I do get on FORT, but that isn't often as I'm mosty giving tours or teaching in the classroom or giving lectures. And I don't have a permanent work space like everyone else either with my own computer, I usually am using someone elses.

    But you know you're addicted to FORT when you come here to tell people your news before you tell your spouse or best friend.

    Re: You know you're addicted to the FORT when...

    Has anyone ever dreamed that they are in/on the FORT? I took a little nap this afternoon, and when I woke up that last thing I remembered from my state of sleep was being in here reading posts.

    Also if something newsworthy happens in the real world, I know I can log on and everyone else is talking about the same thing. Examples: When Tim Russert and Heath Ledger died, when Caylee Anthony's body was found and later positively identified, when Obama won the election, when Rosie and Elizabeth had their shouting match on the View, etc.

    I have a small TV in the computer room, but I watch most of my shows in the comfort of the recliner in the family room. While watching TV, I often think, "Oooh, I wonder what they are saying about this or that in the show's thread on the FORT."

    And I have been known to take the laptop on trips, so I can log into the FORT while away from home.

    Addicted, nah.....obsessed is probably more like it!

    I don't know how to conversate. I can converse with others OK, but I bet it's not the same

    I'm so addicted to FORT smilies that I want to use them on everything I write or type.
