I see that it is lunch time, so I get up from my PC and go to the kitchen to cook something. I place my food in the hot pan and wait for it to cook. I think to myself, "why wait here by the boring stove when I can go back to HubPages and finish that enthralling discussion I was in!" So I go back to my PC with every intention of getting right back after a few minutes to take my food off the hot stove. From the minute I type the first word, my internal clock gets all screwed up, and what seems like five minutes is actually fifteen minutes. I don't realize this until the scent of smoke reaches my nostrils.
So be very careful! This has happened to me more than once. It could happen to you too!
That is funny and it has happened to me, I burnt the macaroni and cheese .aarrghhh!!
Hi, all. Recent research has also documented high incidence of insomnia, constipation and loss of libido in frequent hubbers. Don't ask me how I get to know about these but don't say you haven't been warned.
I knew there was a good reason that I don't cook. It gets in the way of other, more pleasurable pursuits.
Happens all the time. That's why I keep plenty of gravy on hand, to smother things.
For me........to publish my new hub................ today..........I missed my..........dormitory launch.........
But I feel happy because my HP is very good, I think.
Hey, Xtra, you must be a true hubber!
Yah, I am a true hubber. To publish my new hub today, I need at least 5 to 6 hours. Because I do all practically [every steps]. Then edit the pictures and write and revise. It's really hard to write a good HP nicely. I wonder how people publish HP so frequently. But I honor them all. They must have some extraordinary power in them. So, they can do so. For mine, it's quite hard to write one HP by one day.
Yet I'm trying my best to write only good ones...
To everyone popping onto HubPages, Happy Thanksgiving!!!!
XtraTiny, you are doing well and I see the score is coming up
Yah, it's increasing. Now it's 51. I am expecting more...
oh, crap! That reminds me.....MY TURKEY IS BURNING!
Hey, Benson is a doctor so this must be a serious and widespread malady.
I wonder if there is a vaccine against hub obsession/addiction, or maybe a 12-step program. Then again, do any of us really want to be helped with this affliction.
Pretty soon, it'll be showing up on divorce papers as the reason for marriage breakdown.
Hi Shirley. One way to save your marriage is to have one more computer in the house so that you can video-skype with your better half while you both hub along. Or better still, you both hub on the same topic at the hubber's hangout.
Disclaimer: this remedy has not been approved by the FDA and carry no scrutinized scientific evidence on it.
Benson and Maestrowhit, hope you don't mind but I've quoted you both in my latest hub entitled, 'Hubbers Anonymous.'
Maybe we can help get those scores up, Maestrowhit.
Yep, I have done it so often I bought a timer and put it next to he computer. But, the other day I forgot to set the timer and had the cheese toast flaming! See my hub, "Crock-Pot Cooking, or How Not to Cremate a Chicken"

I was hub hopping and had to flag a few hubs for being substandard (word count). One hub had exactly 10 words and 2 photos. There should be a way the system prevents you from publishing a hub like that except if it's in the poetry section.

This hub:http://dzymslizzy.hubpages.com/hub/The- … land-CurseHas, for the second time, garnered the "malicious links" warning. I have checked. THERE ARE NO MALICIOUS LINKS IN THAT HUB!! They are all perfectly legitimate links to the original reference sites I...

Simple rules:1. Do NOT start writing hub until I (as in ME only) says, IN this thread, "GO"2. One Hub. You have 30 minutes to write it, from scratch. (you can have your word doc open in advance etc., obviously, just no writing). No cheating and using something you started before.3....

Are we allowed to republish our articles elsewhere and keep the original hubs here in the mean time?

It takes me half an hour or so to write a 2,000 word article. It takes almost four hours to upload it and edit it so its published in feature mode. I would like to just upload my article and hubpages has some sort of software that would instantly design a feature published hub. Is there such a...
