I'm only online when I have nothing else to do "out there", and I'm generally taking care of household admin when I'm online and non-leisure related correspondance. Second, comes leisure related correspondance, which I do through e-mail. I don't use chat software or Facebook, and I'm only on social things like this when there's absolutely nothing else to do, nobody else here (and awake) and nowhere I can go/nobody I can see at that point.
Sorry, am I making it seem like this is a last resort?
It isn't. Honestly.
It's just that I prefer to do my "stuff" in person, bodily, and stuff - "out there".
