Branching and more branching ...

It goes like this - I look at the friends lists of the people on my friends list, and then randomly read some of their journals (after all, they're friends of my friends, must be interesting people, right ?). Then for the interesting people I find that way, I start looking at their friends lists, and so on, looking at an ever-increasing number of journals ...

I've just done a cleanup of my main Opera session (running on Linux, I only close it when the machine is rebooted, so it's been running for 40 days now - hence has lots of tabs open (around 140 pre-cleanup)), and took 33 journals (mostly LJ, some other) over to a Mozilla window. I've decided that it's a bit nicer to have both separate windows and tabs (which Mozilla does) - that way I can have, for example, a Journals window and a Comics window and so on. Better still, I can bookmark each group of tabs, since the contents of these windows will remain fairly static over time (and if I pick up a new comic or journal, I can re-bookmark). I'll keep Opera for general browsing, particularly Googling - because Opera continually saves its tab state, I can open as many links as I want, leave them there as long as I want, and if something untoward should happen (Opera crash, machine reboot, etc), I know I won't lose anything. I am somewhat easily distractable, so I need to use "surfaces" around me to act as my short-term memory of what I'm up to - Opera is that surface on the computer.

So, the question is - at what point do you say you're "addicted" to Journaling ? (I still refuse to say "blogging" :-) )
