I think Comcast either just gets me or is talking to my friends. They have come up with words, for things I get called out on all the time.  My snurfing is outta control. The internet is just sooooo tempting.  It doesn’t matter if it is friends or family, a few minutes into a phone call I am online.  It starts innocently like I want to look up something like the weather or movie times to make plans, but then wikipedia, the blog, facebook, and news sites creep in.
