It Could Be “LapCancer”

June 4, 2008

The warm feeling on the tops of my legs.

The slightly pinkish tone… like sun-kissed skin.

mmmm….How I love my laptop. It makes my lap happy.

Yes. I could have cancer of the lap. I spend far too much time with my laptop. It’s beginning to become one with me.

At this point in your reading enjoyment you would gaze upon a cute little image that shows the results of a Blog Addiction Test. But because I am such a boob I can not figure out how to get it here.


So I ‘settle’ (ugh!) with simply saying… I AM 87% ADDICTED

The 13% unused addiction has been waiting for me to learn html. When I get that down, I’ll be a full fledged addict. Oh ya!

Want to know if you’re addicted?

Take Test Here

And if you decide to post this test…feel free not to rub it in if you get the cute little image on your blog.

    I am going to do this test later..mmmmmm i think I already know the results…Sweet Jesus take the bad and make it good, even in blog addiction you can use it for your glory!! Isn’t HE the best!? Love you Princess!!

  2. June 4, 2008 2:36 am

    Good good, I am only at 70% although I think Daniel would say (and I would probably agree) that it is higher….bummer. I think it is funny that at the bottom of the thingy it had a hotline for addictions.

  3. June 4, 2008 4:17 am

    I’m afraid to take the test! I think we may have to offer a 12 step group at Cross Point.

  4. June 4, 2008 4:21 am

    67% and probably rising. I’ll have to go back in a month and see if it’s better, or would that be worse? Most of the questions didn’t bother me except that blogging instead of studying for a test one. Ouch. Twice. Oh, another quiz today, and I still need to make lunchβ€”best go, after I read one more.

  5. June 4, 2008 4:28 am

    52% addicted it looks like I have some serious work to do.

  6. June 4, 2008 4:31 am

    47%…. I will fight the addiction and not post the quiz on my Blog…

    May I need to post on Philter48 how blogging can take away from our time with God…. Hmmm … πŸ˜‰

  7. June 4, 2008 4:32 am

    67% and proud of it – so there! I always wanted a vice!

  8. June 4, 2008 5:08 am

    i’m CERTAIN that would be higher pre-vacation/work… wow

  9. June 4, 2008 5:17 am

    I have 75%…. and I won’t rub it in your face, Tam… but you’ll see the image in my blog right…. here :

  10. June 4, 2008 5:18 am

    Sorry, I couldn’t help it πŸ˜›

  11. June 4, 2008 5:37 am

    going to test right now…

  12. June 4, 2008 5:40 am

    85%…that’s 3% less likely to have lapcancer, thank you very much. Change one of those ‘c’s to a d, and my slice will be quite happy.

  13. June 4, 2008 5:41 am

    “Have you ever come up with a great blog idea while doing something completely random, such as taking a shower or watching a movie?”
    yeah…was this supposed to be a rhetorical question?

  14. June 4, 2008 6:01 am

    Holy crow…i’m 85%!!! YIKES!!!

    What have I done, What have I done????

  15. June 4, 2008 6:12 am

    The mere fact that I’m not willing to take the test proves I’m not an addict.

  16. June 4, 2008 6:13 am

    Now thats funny. I am addicted to my computer and I know if I had a lap top it would be even worse b/c it would come with me! Or come with…as my son is saying lately.

  17. June 4, 2008 6:40 am

    I’m such loser. I certainly can’t twitter now.
    I figured out how to do the HTML code on my site but only because Natalie Witcher showed me.

    She’s fancy.

    71% — Whew!!

    I cannot imagine being higher and still holding a job. πŸ™‚

    Umm…When I first glanced at the title, I thought it said, “It Could Be ‘LapDANCER'”!!! 😯

    Glad I was wrong! πŸ˜†

    Okay. Took the test.


  21. June 4, 2008 7:00 am

    91% …hmmm…therapy coming soon…and image is up

  22. June 4, 2008 7:06 am

    Hmm… chronic lurkers only get 47%

  23. June 4, 2008 7:15 am

    I was at 68% and as long as there someone with a higher percentage than mine, then I’m not that bad, right?? How’s that for justification!

  24. June 4, 2008 7:30 am

    55%. And I know that warm lap feeling very well. I actually miss it right now.

  25. June 4, 2008 7:37 am

    Hi, my name is Theresa and I addicted to blogging 84%! It must be the code is wrong, not us. Try as I might as poor and underused as my html is I cannot get the image.

    Oh wait! There is no image, it’s an illusion!!! Yes, that’s it.

    Gotta go work out so I can go to work, must. stop. blo.g.g.i.n.g

  26. June 4, 2008 7:50 am

    I KNEW there would be some who would rub it in here. A couple i expected. But Bajanpoet! I’m shocked you would 😯 But i’ll forgive you πŸ˜‰

    Brandi – you’ve been blogging for 5 weeks now and you’re 68% and you’re already in denial. I’d definitely be concerned.

    ckroboth – that would be an interesting post. but may i say that, for me, blogging has actually brought me into more times with God. I get to read amazing thoughts on God written by others. I get to partner in prayer with so many each day. it has inspired me to dig in the Word more as i ‘test’ the written word of others.

    and i am SO not making excuses and justifying.

    am not. am not. am not. πŸ˜€

  27. June 4, 2008 7:53 am

    For some reason when I read the title, I read “I could be a lap dancer” 😯

    I had to read the post to realize I was waaaay off. πŸ˜†

    Oh my goodness.

  28. June 4, 2008 7:54 am


    Nor thought the same thing!!! HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!

    Awesome. πŸ˜†

  29. June 4, 2008 7:56 am

    well. i could be

  30. June 4, 2008 7:57 am

    I was 85% addicted. That is WAY TOO MUCH. 😯

    I need to go to blog rehab.

  31. June 4, 2008 7:58 am

    Tam, Love would agree I think. πŸ˜†

  32. June 4, 2008 8:10 am

    Whew….only 75%.

    And Tam, 87%???? I think somebody, ahem, may have ‘fudged’ the test just a little bit.

  33. June 4, 2008 8:14 am

    maybe. just a little. πŸ˜€

  34. June 4, 2008 8:29 am


    It was a tongue in cheek comment….

    Sort of making fun of my own addiction to blogging, and having to rush over and make a post about it… Which I did not… πŸ˜‰

    But I am with you… When I Blog I find myself digging into God’s word deeper to make sure I stay biblically sound. That draws me even closer to him.

  35. June 4, 2008 8:35 am

    ckroboth – that’s awesome! and totally understood where you were coming from. but it could be an issue for many so i took the opp to clear my name ;D is that called guilty conscience???

  36. June 4, 2008 8:39 am


    Christ frees you from the guilt….

    OK.. I got to heat up lunch, and get some work done.

  37. June 4, 2008 8:42 am


  38. June 4, 2008 9:39 am

    I couldn’t take the test because my internet filter blocked it – what kind of sites are you referring us to, Tam! πŸ™‚

    My best tool for gauging my internet use is the number of times per day The Beauty says “Are you on there a-GAIN?” πŸ™‚

  39. June 4, 2008 9:40 am

    I’m shocked…I’m only 81% addicted. I guess there’s some room for growth as I would like to be at least 88% addicted!

    June 4, 2008 9:51 am

    I’m relieved…only 25%

    Maybe I would have been less if I hadn’t bothered to take the test =)?!

    Does the lowest score win, like in golf?
    (I’m sure there are some lower though
    –they just won’t take the test =).

    Cheese and rice, I’m only 51%. I feel like such an underachiever.

  42. June 4, 2008 10:02 am

    D- funny, they won’t they take the test!

    Judi – there’s hope!

    GMJ – there’s some dating service link on it which i didn’t like but its only accessible if you got to it.

    I wish I was an underachiever.. It’s addicting!!

    I’m so with you about reading other blogs and “testing” and just having a group of friends who TOTALLY understand me.

    Well understanding that blogging is addictive anyways.

    Spiritually, sometimes I go to church 5 times a day.

  45. June 4, 2008 10:41 am

    Lori – You have a face!!!!!!

    cindy – twitter! please twitter. join the twitter litter and rock it girl!

    Nor- you cheated

  46. June 4, 2008 11:30 am

    44% addicted. But then again, I am really new to this.
    I have broken away today to write, feed the kids, and now I am supposed to be cleaning and doing my chores! See ya later!

  47. June 4, 2008 11:30 am

    Tam, I will have to put BLOG time on my WPS now!
    hmmm….I think I wil give it the color RED. HA!!

  48. June 4, 2008 11:44 am

    Um, Tam, of course I have a face, silly! It’s been here all along….you didn’t think that…no, you couldn’t have thought….did you think……????

    OH!!! You mean the picture!!! Yes, I changed the picture yesterday. Mmmm hmm, yup, that’s me!!!

  49. June 4, 2008 11:45 am

    Uh….I didn’t scare you did I? I’m a little self concious…sorry…did I scare you with it?

  50. June 4, 2008 11:47 am


  51. June 4, 2008 11:48 am

    I should stop now. There are too many of me. It’s scaring me…

  52. June 4, 2008 11:48 am

    Wait…did that last one just move??? I swear, I saw it move…I think it winked at me…

    I gotta stop…

    Love ya Tam!!

  57. June 4, 2008 12:05 pm

    I scored 67%. Does over 50% mean I am an addict? I spend more time on other peoples blogs than my own. When I was counting the blogs I read I was surprised to see that I read 46 blogs daily.

    During the summer my score is lower than 67%. I am more addicted to the beach than blogging. During the winter it’s probably closer to 90%.

    Half the blogs I read for information and science news, the other half is to keep up with my friends. The best part of blogging in making friends around the world, from Australia (Love) to South Africa (Alece). I am addicted to making friends.

  58. June 4, 2008 12:20 pm

    Ed – thats it! We’re addicted to making friends. In a NOT needy kinda way πŸ˜‰

  59. June 4, 2008 12:31 pm

    92%, but I’ll be nice and not put it on my site πŸ™‚

  60. June 4, 2008 2:10 pm

    I took this a while back. I was 70-some % addicted.

  61. June 4, 2008 3:06 pm

    there’s a lot of surveys on that sight.

    It was really hard not to find out my chances of surviving a zombie apocalypse.

    62%. certainly not the most addicting addiction i’ve had.

  62. June 4, 2008 4:11 pm

    hahahaha P365 did check out the one on how many five year olds can you take on and win…hahahahaha he can officially fight 15 5 yearolds! hahahaha sorry Baby, had to bust that one!

    I did not cheat.

    Did not. Did not. Did not.

    I am a measly 32% addicted.

    So there. πŸ˜›

  64. June 4, 2008 5:35 pm

    Oh my goodness–85%. I need to move to where my bloggers are to lower my percentages. What have I done? But you gotta admit, it’s fun and you find out so much.

  65. June 4, 2008 6:20 pm

    64%. Hmmmm… something is not right there.

  66. June 4, 2008 6:25 pm

    35% – I’m shocked – I expected it to be much higher. If I’m only 35% how much time are y’all spending doing this!!??!!

  67. June 4, 2008 6:29 pm


  68. June 4, 2008 7:55 pm

    60% hmmmmmmmmm

  69. June 4, 2008 8:48 pm

    The nicest thing about learning you are 87% addicted is that , besides Klampert, only your hubby is MORE addicted than you! πŸ™‚ ( so far – i’m about to take the test!)

    and as for lapdancing – i just know i could become addicted to that πŸ˜‰ 😯


  70. June 4, 2008 8:51 pm


    cuz i just can’t picture you as a lap dancer.

    but whatever floats your boat πŸ˜‰

  71. June 4, 2008 9:09 pm

    Hmmm.. only 57%? good job there is not an ‘Addicted to In Progress’ quiz! πŸ™‚


  72. TheNorEaster permalink
    June 4, 2008 10:19 pm

    So I’m 32% and Michelle is 35%…


    I see a pattern here. πŸ˜‰

  73. June 5, 2008 8:59 am


    nice Ric!!!

  74. June 5, 2008 9:00 am

    nor – you have a ways to go yet πŸ˜‰

    Like minds, Nor. πŸ˜‰

  77. June 5, 2008 2:22 pm

    I now feel like a total dork after taking the test…and i did a post on it.

  78. June 5, 2008 2:51 pm

    I am 84%..I am not surprised…mmmmmm oh well I have been addicted to much much much worse!

  79. June 6, 2008 1:35 pm

    57% addicted

  80. June 6, 2008 2:22 pm

    i finally got around to this. i am 88% addicted. barely beat you out πŸ™‚

  81. June 8, 2008 4:13 pm

    I’m 72% addicted, so you have me beat. πŸ˜‰ (I am a slacker and post about 1/3 as often as I intend to.)
    LOL at “lap cancer.” My secret is I use a lap desk. Love the thing. And having a hot laptop directly on my leg triggers my MS numbness so it was a good excuse to buy the lapdesk I’d been wanting. πŸ˜‰
