IM Junkie

I’m an Instant Messenger Junkie.  Yup!  No doubts about that.  I used to be obsessed about ICQ, then ICQ + Yahoo Messenger, then ICQ + Miranda, then ICQ + Gaim, then ICQ + MSN. 

After my office network viciously killed off all access to MSN (the program), i used or or to log on.  But those URLs got blocked by the firewall too… so i searched & searched for a solution.  Finally, i found it.  Using, i could access sites that were blocked by my office network (prob. ‘cos the IP adds reflected were those of ehobo’s). 

This discovery was made yesterday only.  I was so proud of myself.  Felt such a sense of achievement… even if i was barely chatting with anyone, just knowing that MSN was there gave me such reassurance.  Haha.  That’s why i think i’m an IM junkie.  I’m addicted to instant messaging.  (In case u’re facing similar problems, works with  The ebuddy & iloveim scripts don’t seem to work with ehobo.)

But for all my brilliance, i was caught by my boss yesterday.  Sigh.  He was searching for something on my PC & he clicked on the webmessenger window.  I didn’t attempt to cover up or anything.  Just acted cool & took over the mouse to open the window he was looking for.  My boss said, “So u’re UptownGal huh?”.  And i just mumbled a “Yeah” or something to that effect.  Didn’t close the window after that ‘cos i didn’t want to appear like i have this major guilty conscience?  Haha. 

Well, my boss didn’t say anything… maybe ‘cos it was after office hours… but hehe… since he didn’t say anything, i’ll just continue using it lor.  Wahaha… albeit as discreetly as i can.  😛
