I do really love social interaction, though - so for me, instant message is the perfect way to chat with friends - but not offend when something else needs my attention. I love the fact that I can set my status to "away" and the person with whom I am chatting knows it's not them...it's me - in a totally non-sarcastic, no I'm not breaking up with you kind of way. I also love that I can always run to the computer and tell my cute husband every stupid thing that crosses my mind. It makes me feel close to him even when he's at work.
Simple conversations like these are often the highlight of my day.

melissa says: oh, I know.
melissa says: don't worry about it.
melissa says: it's more the romance of chinese take out that I'm looking for.
melissa says: I've said it before...I like the idea more than the actual food

melissa says: me alone at the table isn't nearly as appealing!
robby says: haha! you watch too many tom hanks movies
