Don't lie, you check them

Hello, my name is Maggie.

And yes, I am an Away Message Checker.

Aren't we all? We're all curious as to what our friends/family/neighbors are doing with their lives and we just want them to post it online in the form of an away message.

There's so much you can tell from an away message. You can tell who's happy, who's sad, who just got dumped. It's an art, really.

I created this blog to celebrate that art.

I've changed the screennames of those who's away messages I use, but, they are brilliant in their own right. Whether a joke, a tear, or a smile is meant, each away message is unique.

So here's to being away from the computer.

Creativity is encouraged.

How this works:

I change all the names associated with each message. No one gave me permission to use them, these are all posted on sites like Facebook, Myspace, or AIM that use status updates or away messages for friends and family to see.
I do not own any of these photos (unless otherwise noted), they belong to the copyright owners, and are all attributed back to the owner's flickr accounts.

The juxtaposition of both though, is uniquely mine.
