Me too!!! It's fun to read about others experiences and relive your own experiences. Especially while at work.

I have a serious problem. I am afraid THEY may be planning an intervention.

Hey Marilyn,

Great idea. A convention for Fodorites. Where shall we hold it?

I, myself, am always wondering if there is a 12-step program for this.

I have to admit, I'M HOOKED!!! It all started when I decided to go to Italy next year and needed some opinions on hotels, luggage, train travel.... Now I can't seem to go a day without checking these posts. I really enjoy having all this info at my fingertips, especially at work..
Thanks for all the feedbacks....

ira, you goofball, I said "intervention" not "convention". You know, where they put you in a room and try to deprogram you? Come to think of it, I really like the convention idea a lot better.

Faina, YES! SF is the perfect place, because we are both here. (And so is PCH, apparently)

Personally, I must check Fodor's a couple of times a day. It is really an illness, you know. I'm not responsible!

Seriously, I am truly thankful for all the help I have gotten from this forum. I think travel helps all of us to understand other people and cultures and, hopefully, be more loving and tolerant. Thank you, Fodors!

Addicted beyond belief!
I came for advice on Spain, I stayed for all the behind the scenes drama...San Jose, San Fransisco, name changes and bee booties???...no idea what it all means and I read it all the same.
Oh, and the travel tips of course.

Confessions of a Fodorite:
Guilty. I'm glad I'm not the only one in over my head. My DH went to bed the other night leaving a note on the bathroom counter that said, "My wife left me for the internet." It will be awhile before I actually get to go, so for now, I go vicariously through you! Recently, I did share your pre-trip excitement.... all the way to the theater to see La Divorce. I couldn't wait to see Paris! My day is punctuated with Fodor check-ups. If I had a job, I'd probably be in trouble by now. I, too, can read your comments for hours. I have always railed against the dangers of chat rooms and talking to strangers on the internet, and make sure my teens don't do it. And, here I am. My family thinks I'm nutty for my passion here. I tell them it's legit, comprised of nice people who are sophisticated traveler's who are generous enough to share a wealth of info that we can all benefit from. They say, "Oh, sure..." However, they do enjoy the funny stories I recite to them.

Completely addicted!

My husband (or DH, as we Fodorites like to say)is also wondering what I'm up to. I tell him I'm just planning for our upcoming trip but I find that I'm now reading all the different boards, not just Europe.

I love reading about everyone's travel experiences and perspectives, good and bad, and I, too, have gotten lots of valuable info here.

And yes, let's do the intervention/convention in S.F. - I would love to meet all my NorCal Fodorite neighbors.

I didn't know there were so many Northern California types on this board. Anyone else? What did you think of the thunderstorm last night? Tough to sleep.

When my wife asks me what I'm doing so long at the computer, I answer back that I am corresponding with my mistress.

She always sighs, and as she walks away she says with a shrug, "Oh, you're on the Fodors Board again."

I'm totally addicted. And if you don't believe me, you can always ask the Network Administrator where I work who is probably tracking all this ; )
