The female version of the remote control

You know how guys go flipping through channels constantly with the remote, well I go flipping through tabs like crazy on my browser page. So much so that I constantly freeze my laptop. I guess I'm just trying to be too efficient while I'm waiting for another page to load. Ok. Fine. I'm simply impatient.

Speaking of impatient, I burnt toast again today. So annoying. I can't seem to get myself to sit there watching and waiting while the toast cooks. I always think that 'I'll just do this or that real quick' or 'I'll just grab something real quick' and then, viola, burnt toast. Talk about wasteful. What about all the starving kids in Africa? Ok, so that isn't exactly true cause and effect, but I still feel bad. Maybe I can guilt myself into having more patience.

I love tabs too! I actually get annoyed when Nate opens a new window for the internet rather than a tab. Talk about wasted real estate on my task bar!

I'm impatient too. There's nothing worse than a slooooow internet connection. So, why don't you just turn the knob on your toaster lower so it just pops up when it's done?

Karen
I only have a toaster oven so I am continually changing the knob depending on what I'm cooking and I can never remember where to put it for toast...or waffels...

O.K., that makes more sense. I forgive you now. hehe

Wow, that could have been my post because I do all of those EXACT same things! Dang toaster ovens! Dang slow computer! Just keep up with me, stupid modern technology...

SO TRUE! When Brad is watching me work on my laptop and I'm always working on like 4 or 5 things at once. He can't believe that I check my email while I'm waiting for something else to load and then go comment on a blog or something...But when he's controlling the remote I just want him to stay on the channels longer.
