When I don't have AW,
I don't need to go back in the house.

If I don't go back in the house,
then I spend too much time in sun. *ouchies!*

If I spend too much time in the sun,
then I end up going through expensive skin conditioner
at an alarming rate.

and that's why I need AW. =)

=================

What do you do when you don't get your AW Fix?

Play non-wagering online video poker (http://www.videopoker.com).

Keep hitting "random article" on wikipedia, only half of which I care about, and only a fraction thereof I usually understand.

Cry painted tears like rain,
Until my aching doth wane.

Wonder what my Cantina peeps are up to (aside from clicking refresh like me :D)

When I don't have AW I spend too much time on useless social networking sites such as Twitter.com and #absolutewrite on irc.starchat.net.

I enjoy the down time. Selfish person that I am, the longer the site is out of action, the more I appreciate escaping its time-consuming clutches.

But yeah, I was kinda happy when I logged on earlier and wasn't greeted with a time-out message.

This.

This place saves my sanity during the day. I cry and get desparate without it. And grumpy.

And hormonal. No, wait. That's not right...

I still have to be on the computer; it's just waaaay more boring.

I could write, but my muse never visits while I'm chained to the PC for those other reasons.

When AW was out I read some kind of long debate about Hinduism and yoga. And philosophers. Yeah, not in the mood.

I prefer eggplants :)

I should admit that I do still rewrite without AW,
but without little breaks of OP mayhem,
the rewriting becomes true drudgery.

have to say, that's one unsettling and fascinating avatar KA...

When I don't have my AW fix, I also don't get my fiction work done. AW guilt-trips me a lot so that I'm constantly thinking about revisions and writing. I may spend plenty of time here, but it reminds me that I need to finish my books.

So it helps me to get the work done.

I also would end up playing video games all day. :)

I made some move Avies today when we were down...

I may be an addict =)

I play the Sims 3 and wonder why I'm not doing something productive. Or I get myself in legal trouble. yeah...I'm bad like that...

I have to go all research-mode...sans distractions...











...how come it's fun to read stuff when you don't *have to* but the same stuff is no fun to read as fact-checks???

I yell at Mac on Twitter to fix it and then I ReTweet where she tells us to STOP doing this:


keep clicking "refresh" until it comes back.

It makes fixing it impossible. :D

I think I did once... lol :) And I saw where you said it was back up and to be gentle. I was confused by what justified gentle on a forum. Kick off all the trolls?

It means avoid doing long complicated searches.

Also: Think nice thoughts about hamsters.

For the same reasons that I can read an entire college level psych text in a weekend and if I had to in school it would have taken months....

I stalk Mac and Medi on Twitter and watch 30STM videos when AW goes down. Though, through circumstance, today I happened to be napping and managed to wake up a bare few minutes after the site came back. I'm talented with timing like that! :D
