Am I the only one near a computer on the weekends?

I've been noticing this for a long time. Few people post anything on blogs or chat loops from Friday afternoon through Sunday evening. Does everybody but me have an exciting weekend life? What am I missing? Does the Weekend Fairy flit around to all domiciles but mine and wave her Let's Have Fun wand and give everybody wonderful things to do?

I'll admit, I've been thinking along strange lines lately. Since George Carlin's lamentable death, I've been watching "tributes" and realizing how easily it's always been for me to tap into his thought processes. So for a while, when it comes to language and human behavior and the state of the world, I'll probably be in a Carlin mode. This is something I do need to get over, though. That sonofabitch was a real misanthrope!

Nope, we've all been noticing it this year!
Much quieter on the loops than it used to be.
A few shining heroes can generate some activity, but in the main, I've seen the same thing

Aha, so I'm not the only one!

What I can't figure out is this: gas prices being what they are (hell, the whole economy being what it is), what are people doing on weekends? Logic dictates that the 'Net would be busier than ever.

I'd noticed this as well and wondered if it was me. :-)
I've also noticed it's much quieter since summer has appeared with good weather in the US. I guess everyone is doing summer things.
