You Might Be A Hubber

Do you have the Hub Bug?

Since I have joined Hp, I have spent many nights at the computer when I needed to be sleeping. Not to mention all the other things I could be doing! I figure that I can not possibly be the only one in this fix so I figured I would create this little test to see if there are others with this addiction. I refer to it as the Hub Bug.

You might be a hubber

You might be a hubber IF....

  • When you go to bed at night your body wants to sleep but you keep hearing these little voices saying "Hey, let's write a hub about (fill in the blank").
  • Your mate tells you they love you and you reply with "Hub love you too" (oops!)
  • It takes you an hour to realize that the smoke coming from the front of the house is the pot roast you put in the oven for dinner (5 hours ago!)
  • You squirm around in your seat trying not to wet your pants because you just HAVE to finish your latest hub. (Some may even consider investing in Depends at this point)
  • You call in sick to work and tell the boss you have a "bug" (hub bug) because the Hub Love contest has finally chosen your favorite topic.
  • You purchase a fridge for your computer room because you lose entirely too much time from hubbing having to run back and forth to the kitchen.
  • You crawl into bed and your mate is feeling a bit frisky. You jump out of bed, tell them to hold that thought because you sense a hub coming on. (major oops!)
  • You have to beat the crap out of your keyboard every couple of days to remove all the crumbs, cigarette ashes and other debris that has accumilated from living over the keyboard.
  • Your pet has begun to look at you funny, as if they don't recognize you anymore.
  • You know all of the pizza delivery guys name, address and social security numbers.
  • The sheriff shows up at your door because concerned family members have filed a missing person's report on you.
  • Your spouse now refers to Hub Pages as the home wrecker.

While I am sure there are many more telltale signs that you have been infested with the Hub Bug, these are just a few of the symptoms to be on the lookout for. And if you have any bloodwork done at the doctor's office and they find that your bloodstream is 99.99% coffee, tea or soda just tell the doctor to look in his medical dictionary under Hub Bug for treatment.

Yep, I'm a hubber! If you don't believe me just go back over the last couple of days and look at the time stamp on all my posts, comments and hubs. What time do you think it is as I write this one?

LOL we have a lot to show for it! Just look at all the hubs we're pumping out!I am very blessed that my hubby understands that my computer means to me what his t.v. means to him. We just make sure to spend time together when he is off work so that we don't forget what each other looks like just in case one of us ever has to ID the other LOL. Thanks for stopping by and posting!

Love the post, Bonnie.

Perhaps you should take a survey and see what percentage of hubbers are infected?

Hopefully, they never develop a vaccine.

Hi Bonnie,

This is now my 3rd day on this site, and your hub certainly hit a nerve. I too, believe this will be just one more addiction added to my repertoire! So far, I love it!

LOL, Trish! Thanks for stopping by and commenting. I know the addiction is very fast. It's kind of like the Pringle's potato chip commercial, "Once you pop, you can't stop"! LOL Welcome to HP and drop by any times!

Great hub! Since I joined about 4 weeks ago, hubpages.com is at the top of the Explorer URL dropdown menu, replacing eBay and weather. When I get up in the morning, I make coffee, bring up HP, and wait for the doggie to whine before I take her out. I'm probably going to get Depends for HER. ;) Oh yeah, my keyboard's a mess, too.

LOL, Sally! I know the feeling! I created a button for HP on my toolbar so I didn't have to look for the url in my favorite menu or drop down on the address bar lol. It is an awsome site and the people here are just as awsome! Welcome to HP and thanks for taking the time to read and comment. Stop by my hubs any time!

Bonnie! My server was down for 80 hours and I went for 80+ hours without the internet...therefore without hubpages for all that time.Going without, cold turkey is hazardous to everyones health...especially people who came near me. I can vouch for it I was not in a pretty mood. Now I'm happily flitting from one great hub to the next. So much fun in so little time.

great hub and regards from another HUB-BUG afflicted

I don´t understand why you laugh Pete!? You are already infected and I`m sure you will never get well again :P

OMG! I`ve got it too!!!!!! What can I do about it!? HELP! :D

Thanks for such funny hub Bonnie ;)

Zsuzsy,

I would have total withdrawals from 80 hours without internet! LOL Thanks Zsuzsy, Weddingconsultant and Funride for taking the time to read and comment. I am glad all of you have enjoyed it!

Bonnie,

This was amusing to say the least! I am afraid that I have fit into several of the symptomatic descriptions that you have posted. Yikes! I had no idea I was ill!

I admit to being "infected" as well. I've always enjoyed writing. Heck I even have journalism degree. Never really used it though. (Somewhere in a city far from here my father screams). -- This forum has sparked a wave of motivation once reserved for my music. My hearing is restored. Nonetheless, I'm sure the cure is being quarantined. This is good news indeed! Great hub!

Rob, In-the-doghouse,

Thanks for reading and commenting but don't fret! This is a disease worth having! Just look at all the good info that can come from it.

I fear I've come down with many of the same symptoms. I guess I'm on the same train. Thanks, Bonnie, for the ride. Is there a doctor in the house?

I hear Dr. HubLove is lurking in our midst somewhere, William! LOL. Thanks for stopping by and posting! Hub train rides are always free and unlimited!
