Do you ever visit MyLot before you check your email?

This morning, when I awoke and stumbled to my computer to see if the rest of the world was still here, the first thing that came up was MyLot, so I started commenting away while brewing up my first cup of coffee. After looking for Gatorade in the dishwasher (I'll explain that one later), I decided it was safest just to keep commenting until I had some coffee in my system. Usually I think I check my email first, but this morning, it was MyLot first. Do you have a usual order in which you do your first computer stuff of the day? I think my norm is email, MyLot, check my YouTube songs (I'm up to 69 followers--woo hoo!), and then other stuff. Sometimes I do on-line banking to make sure Barrister Mbalo hasn't taken all of my savings back to Nigeria. In the words of Jesse Winchester, "How about you?"

E-mails first although I don't get many. I used to get a lot of spam e-mails but not anymore. I don't know the reason for one or the other.

I went through a period around Christmas when I was getting 30 spam emails a day. But I'm down to about 3 a day now, mostly from that fella Ben Watson, who can solve all of my life problems.

The very first thing I do is check the weather site I use, then record and post my morning facebook video, then I check email and come to myLot after that.

@TheHorse I do a thing called Morning Coughee Moment every day, just more-or-less telling people I am still alive and vinyl still rules.

@myklj999 In your honor, I just put some vinyl on. I went with a Jesse Winchester album from the 1970s.

Yes email is always my first thing to it is how I make money in real estate and get referrals to sell my houses.

Email is way down on the list and not daily. 99% of mine is spam, so legit messages tend to get missed. MyLot's lots closer to the top. I check in on FB to see what my kids are doing, but even they don't post like they used to. Hopefully FB's on its way out. PS What's with the Gatorade?

Heh heh. I'll save th Gatorade thing for when I do a post on semi-senior moments, or on cognition in general. I think it will get more views if I frame it in terms of senior moments. Basically, I went, bleary-eyed, from my computer to the kitchen for a sip of Gatorade. I turned left in the kitchen and opened the dishwasher. Why? Hint: My refrigerator FACES my dishwasher and I keep my Gatorade in the door. Does this make sense?

Sounds like a good idea. I delete my cookies and browsing history often. I should delete more older emails. Haven't done so in awhile.
