Very exciting moment this! I have just written my first Filk! So exciting I nearly forgot to tag this. But I have tagged it and here is the filk. It is about net addiction (in light of the "you know you're an internet junkie when"). I'm not sure how good it is but I'm pleased to have done it.

To the tune of Another day in paradise by Phil Collins (a slightly ruder alternative to just the pits is really sh*t but I didn't want that repeated line after line because it would look dodgy)

She calls out to the man on the street, sir can you help me?
It won't work all it does is go bleep, this computer's not healthy!
He walks on, doesn't look back, he pretends he can't hear her.
He starts to whistle as he crosses the street, she fakes fine I do not care.
Oh, fix it, cos I think living life without the net is just the pits
Oh, fix it, cos I think living life without, without the net is just the pits
She calls out to the man on the street, he can see she's been crying.

She's got nothing on the screen of the thing, won't turn on but she's trying
Oh, fix it, cos I think living life without the net is just the pits
Oh, fix it, cos I think living life without, without the net is just the pits
Just get it fixed soon
Just get it fixed soon
hold on, is there anything wrong with the connections
whoa, hold on there must be something that's gone loose
You can tell by the lines on her face, that it's valuable to her
Probably sends emails from every place, with a laptop computer.
And oh, fix it, cos I think living life without the net is just the pits
Oh fix it, cos I think living life without, without the net is just the pits

just get it fixed soon
just get it fixed soon
It's just another day, for you and me, without the net.
It's just another day, for you and me, without the net
It's just another day, for you and me, without the net
It's just another day, for you and me, witohut the net
It's just another day, for you and me,
It's another day for you and me, without the net
Without the net oh noooooo,
Nooooo!
