Red Bubble Addiction Check

1 – Do you spend at least 1 hour daily on RB?

2 – Do you regularly go to bed very late at night, sometimes past midnight, because you just wanted to upload one more image / writing / T-shirt?

3 – Do you go to sleep wondering how many views that one last image / writing / T-shirt will get?

4 – Do you dream about how you’ll set up or edit your next piece?

5 – Do you get up in the morning and log in to RB to see if you were right about your views?

6 – Do you crave the adoration of favouritings?

7 – Do you long for comments?

8 – Do you believe Photoshop has the power to change the world?

9 – Do you take your camera / paintbox / sketchpad / notepad everywhere with you hoping for that RB moment?

10 – Do you pray that your image / writing / T-shirt will be shown on the RB HomePage?

11 – Do you only go on holiday / vacation where you know you can get Internet access so you can check your Bubble Mail?

12 – Do you hope that everyone that you watchlist, will watchlist you in return?

If you can answer, ‘YES’, to six or more of the above, then you may have, Red Bubble Addiction.

There is but one cure: Go to your nearest shopping centre / mall, dressed as any character from Sesame Street, or even in a giant kangaroo costume, and yodel your National Anthem through a load-hailer until arrested. You will then be taken to a place where there is no Internet Access, but plenty of severe nurses with no necks and suspiciously hairy top lips, who will ensure your best care in one of their small, but well appointed rooms. Thus ensuring a cure will be affected.

Do it now, before it’s too late!!

With a tongue (mine, if you are asking) firmly in my cheek, I offer you this helpful little checklist, and wish you good health!
Inspired by a comment from sarah moore a few weeks ago, which she’s may well have forgotten by now(!)

    No, I refuse to believe that only scoring 10 and a half makes me an addict.
