Questions are from Solutions Research Group. Your score determines if "you are a candidate to feel elevated levels of anxiety if disconnected even for a short period of time."
You're such an addict. geez.

I"ll stick with my prosaic addictions, thanks.

I don't even own a cell phone.

Though, there was a time where I was so connected to the net where I knew whenever something happened instantly. Then they made us go camping up where the cells don't get reception for three days and I missed all the news that happened while we were gone. Come back into the real world to find I'd missed 9/11.

My cellphone has multiple personalities, it functions as my watch, alarm clock, cell phone and home phone since it's all I have. As for the phone itself, meh, I don't care, this is my first cell phone ever, I could go back to living without it and using more conventional methods no problem.

My computer, however, is my skin.
