    I'm at the kitchen counter, on a kitchen stool, with a view of the TV and the exercise bike that I should be riding.

    Ahh, did the treadmill for the evening - are you impressed?

    I'm finally in front of the TV (watching a reality show) and on line. Got the wireless up and running, just for this! OK, and to travel also, but this is what I've been looking forward to!

    When I visit the FORT I am usually in my home office/spare room with a small t.v. on top of file cabinet. I do log on at work when I am caught up. It is really hard to resist logging on first thing in the morning after a particularly good show the night before. I use that as incentive to plow through the paperwork and get it done as quickly as possible. I have my own office at work, but open door policy means just about everybody there walks in to interrupt ALL THE FREAKIN TIME!!!

    By the way, how many t.v.'s do ya'll have in your homes? I am almost ashamed to say that we have one in every room except bathrooms! And if I lean just right I can see the one in my bedroom from the bathroom.
    I enjoy the escapism of reality television. Beats the heck out of worrying about your REAL life!!

    I just found this and thought I'd bump it up to see if anyone's changed their habits in the last 2 years.

    I usually visit the FORT at home in my living room watching both the TV and the computer. I've got them setup side by side. I have my keyboard and mouse setup on a little table that I slide up to the couch when I want to use the computer. The other place I visit from is work. Just to check in during breaks or when I'm really bored.

    Inside me lives a skinny woman crying to get out. But I can usually shut the b*tch up with cookies. (Unknown)

    Ah, I am in the kind of dogleg nook area off the living room (Our living room/dining room is odd shaped) and the tv is 2 rooms away in the family room.
    Which is why I have to run to the computer AFTER the show to post.
    I've tried using my daughter's laptop, but 1), I have a hard time typing on it, the keyboard is weird to me and 2) i can't do what you all do and concentrate on 2 things at once. But I can't walk and chew gum either, so I watch, then read the FORT

    As my computer is still in my basement and I only come on the Fort at home, I'm still in the same place. I have internet access at work but rarely come on to the FORT because then I really would get nothing done at work.

    But, it's getting cold down here, I have to get these basement windows replaced, it's down right breezy.
