Addicted To The Internet

When we moved to our new office a few weeks ago, the website security was left off. This gave me access to videos on CNN and Facebook to name a few previously blocked sites. Last week a new security update was announced and, of course, the internet security went back in force. It is a good thing though because Facebook is just too tempting. When someone leaves me a message it shows up in my email but I can't reply unless I log on to Facebook. The company does allow 60 minutes of internet time though and I can click the button for a 15 minute chunk of Facebook. Before the internet free-for-all, I never went on there. Now, since I had a few weeks of free access, I use at least 15 minutes a day. 15 minutes is enough. Most of my friends are working too so only a few people are on there during the day. At least now since I only use my approved 15 minutes (and have up to 60 minutes) I don't feel like I am breaking the rules.

Strangely, Youtube is not blocked. A lot of time can be wasted on there that's for sure.

Oh, and Craig's List is not blocked, my other favorite site. I was looking for another large dog run so that I can keep dogs separate if they do not get along. I found one but it was on the other side of town (of course). It was only $50 which was a fantastic price but someone got to it first. But then word got around that I was looking for a dog run and it turned out that 2 people that belong to dog rescue groups had an extra one in their yards. So I will get one for free this weekend. All I have to do is go pick it up...on the other side of town, of course. But FREE is definitely worth the trouble and gas.
