Help: She's addicted...what can I do?

I wonder whether my mother loves me as much as much as her new toy? Within seconds minutes of returing to her house from the airport on Monday she was hooked up and reading her blogs whilst her grandson was begging her to play cars. Is there a name for this computer addiction? Is there treatment available for her? Or is she lost to the blogosphere? It's a good job she has two computers or else I wouldn't have done any blogging whilst she was hogging (like the rhyme) the new computer!

My usual supplier sent me this joke to share today, hope you enjoy it.

Miracle Cure
Do you have feelings of inadequacy?
Do you suffer from shyness?
Do you sometimes wish you were more assertive?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, ask your doctor or pharmacist about White Wine.
White Wine is the safe, natural way to feel better and more confident about yourself and your actions. White Wine can help ease you out of your shyness and let you tell the world that you're ready and willing to do just about anything.

You will notice the benefits of White Wine almost immediately, and with a regimen of regular doses you can overcome any obstacles that prevent you from living the life you want to live. Shyness and awkwardness will be a thing of the past, and you will discover many talents you never knew you had. Stop hiding and start living, with White Wine.

However, White Wine may not be right for everyone. Women who are pregnant or nursing should not use White Wine. However, women who wouldn't mind nursing or becoming pregnant are encouraged to try it. Side effects may include dizziness, nausea, vomiting, incarceration, erotic lustfulness, loss of motor control, loss of clothing, loss of money, loss of virginity, delusions of grandeur, table dancing, headache, dehydration, dry mouth, and a desire to sing Karaoke and play all-night rounds of Strip Poker, Truth Or Dare, and Naked Twister.

I totally am disallowed, for the rest of my life, to drink red wine. Totally.

And this one? "The consumption of alcohol may lead you to believe that ex-lovers are really dying for you to telephone them at four in the morning."

I consider my bubble burst.

White wine can do no wrong. For reals.

What you can achieve with red wine?

Even more intense hangovers and more vomit in the loo, usually.

You think she's addicted? it's our week off and what are we doing? Reading blogs. What a saddo...

Sam said...

hard liquor is even better. I woke up this morning with all my clothes on and no idea how I got home.

Rachel (Crazy-Is) said...

That one is hilarious!!

Pamela said...

thats so odd you brought up shyness
yesterday I read about a nasal spray to cure shyness. I thought it sounded much like an illegal drug that people use in their nose...

I didn't see the same WARNINGS on it as white whine. I have some white wine chilling right now -- It was part of the gift I sent to my friend L'chaim in Texas and it got returned. The chocolate was spoiled. sigh.

Just like some of the drugs on tv, the side-affects are worse than the original affliction!
(When it comes to wine, though, I'll chance it!)

Zoomie said...

Hi, Beccy, loved the joke about white wine! I found you through a comment you left with Cookiecrumb and I'm glad I visited. Your Mom sounds like a woman after my own heart! And, being half Irish, I've always wanted to visit Ireland! Keep up the fun work!
