Loo Surfing

A new survey of Internet use has found that more and more people are logging on -- in the bathroom. First, the pajamahadeen surfing in pajamas, and now... well you get the picture.

Oh, what is the world coming to?

I use a laptop for all my blogging and internet use, but I have never blogged or used my computer at any time from the throne. I have used the laptop many times in my PJ's though.

I don't have a laptop, but if I did, I wouldn't use it in the bathroom. That is just plain gross.

Pajamahadeen, I love it! Around here all 6 of us are frequently guilty of being Underwarriors, I guess you'd call it... TMI?

I have a desktop, so I can only log in from my desk, but even so if I had a more portable system I'm not sure I'd use it in the bathroom. I don't know, maybe I would, I guess it's not much different than reading in there, and we ALL do that. Hmmm, now that I think about it, if I could be sure to keep the computer dry and clean, I'm pretty sure I would take it in there...

BTW-Thanks for the pep talk on my blog today, I'm always afraid to get too "heavy" because I don't do it well, but MAN that was annoying! Thanks for reminding me that it's important to do that when things are wrong...

Nonsense, you did just fine.

BTW shouldn't that be underwearriors?

Jen said...

Yes, "underwearriors" is much better.

I'm a notorious multi-tasker, but seriously. Ewww.

I feel awful admitting this but when I was a child I used to go in the bathroom to do my homework. It was the only quiet place where I could be alone. I still like to read on the toilet.

I don't know, but reading on the terlit just doesn't rise to the level of entering data on your laptop on the terlit. Is it just me? Or am I a dinosaur like dak-ind commented?

Call me old fashioned but I don't even answer the phone while in the potty. MIL has a phone installed in hers...I just read the caller ID. My cell went off while I was in a public potty, and that was so weird.
Once I was in a public and this lady was talking on her cell in the next stall... so do I flush and totally sound out her call?

And computer time in the loo is too weird for me...course lugging my HUGE desk top in there with it's old fashioned monitor that weighs as much as my child would be pretty difficult! LOL

I'd be worried about the acoustical details divulged in a potty cell phone call ;-)
