Writer's Block: Divided Self

Do you behave differently online than you do in real life?
Yes: both online and in real life I spend hours sitting here in front of the computer.

No:  in real life I gesture when I talk, my voice goes up and down and there are many cues to whether I'm intending to be funny, or serious, or I'm tired or bored or frustrated with something else.   In real life the people I'm having a conversation with can see the facial expression, the direction of gaze, the tension or relaxation of signal muscles in the face and neck and hands...so this is one-dimensional interaction, in B&W instead of color.  Also, I don't post about it every time I have a bite of chocolate, like the Dagoba Xolatl that just warmed my mouth,  or a carrot, or an apple, or sunflower seeds, or a chicken sandwich (yes, I eat at the computer.)
