    She doesn't give me crap about it, but every so often she reminds me ever so gently that I have a ****ton of IRL work to do.
    People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

    Mine knows better than to question what I do with my time.

    In the process of a divorce and it had nothing to do with posting here... she was/is just **** nuts. In fact, when I spent time on the cpu or here at DP, she bitched and then when I spent time with her she bitched. I am staying single for the rest of my life unless something massive happens, and I can't imagine what that might be... some 27 year-old hottie that idolizes me and all that blah blah.

    But then again... why marry her?

    Re: Am I alone?

    My ex-bf really hated it when I explained an argument or anecdote from DP to him. I think it was something to the degree of "this is the most boring thing you talk about, ever."

    Apparently the drama doesn't translate well- and I'm a really good story teller.
    And why does your tone suggest that you do not care about children?

    She knows the alternative is Newgrounds. So no. She doesn't complain.

    I do not think 30 min. is unreasonable. Perhaps you should tell her how much you enjoy this site and what it means to you.

    I'd also like to point out that the person who should be upset about the amount of time I spend on DP is my employer.

    Just curious...
    I'm making a living on the 'puter. So it is very easy for me to skoot in and out on this message board. Oh and I work for myself and I'm my own worst boss.
