(Parody lyrics by Maureen Parrott, with apologies to Otis Redding & Steve Cropper, composers of Dock of the Bay)

Sittin' and playin' with the mouse
I never get out of this house
Tappin' keys when night comes on
And still tappin' in the light of dawn

Sittin' in front of a screen
Glowin' white, red & green
Watchin' the patterns change
Wastin' time...

I left my kids in daycare
Dial-up, check an email or two...
They tried to call to see when I'd get there
My line's busy, they couldn't get through

Looks like there's no new mail
But if I keep sittin' a spell
Chat, & check my auctions, then
Oh, I guess I'll check mail again

Sittin' hunched over the keys
Crampy shoulders, sore back, & stiff knees
Just a few more links to explore
I'll read 'em, then follow some more


Holy self-fulfilling prophecies, Batman! You were right, Artful Codger. I spent far too much time trying to find the right protocol for posting, which may leave me a cranky and impatient mom tomorrow. Sigh. Maybe I'll make it a computer-free weekend.
