My wife: “Okay, let me know when you’re done, I want to dope too.”

Does your household have a verb or other shorthand expression for this activity, and if so, what is it? (And do you worry about outsiders overhearing and thinking you’re monkeying with your blood a la that Russian ski team?)

We call it “being on the Dope.” This does cause some raised eyebrows on occasion. :smiley:

I tend to use “on this message board I go on” for all the message boards I use.

I’ve used ‘to dope’ on occasion . Conjugated of course.

It’s surfing, reading the board, or surfing the board to me.

Not really much chance for a Three’s Compnany situation there as I’m an hour from the coast, overweight, and in a wheelchair for the time being.

‘Surfing the Web’ or ‘talking to my friends’.

“Reading message boards” or occasionally something specific like “there’s this thread at the SDMB…”
