Tuesday funnies

Since I'm slightly brain-dead (yes, more so than usual) from working the early morning shift at the radio station this week (there is a reason why humans are not meant to get up at 5 am), and from doing revisions on the Venice book, this will be a short, light, goofy post. Someone sent me this email today, and I got a self-deprecating laugh out of it:

You Know You Are Living in 2005 When...
1) You accidentally enter your password on the microwave
2) You haven't played solitaire with real cards in years (note from Amanda--you can play solitaire with CARDS?)
3) You have a list of 15 phone numbers to reach your family of 3
4) You email the person who works in the desk next to yours (note from Amanda--OK, so I have done this, but where I work the office is way across the hall from the studio. It would take at least 3 minutes to walk over there)
5) Your reason for not staying in touch with friends and family is that they don't have email addresses
6) You pull up in your own driveway and use your cell phone to see if anyone is home to help you carry in the groceries
7) Every commercial on TV has a website at the bottom of the screen
8) Leaving the house without your cell phone, which you didn't have the first 20 or 30 (or 60) years of your life, is now a cause for panic and you turn around to go and get it
10) You get up in the morning and go on-line before getting your coffee
11) You start tilting your head sideways to smile :) (Note from Amanda--I have actually said LOL instead of laughing)
12) You're reading this and nodding and laughing
13) You know exactly to whom you are going to forward this message
14) You are too busy to notice there was no #9 on this list
15) You scrolled back up to check there isn't a #9 on this list

L - O - L Amanda! (Head tilted to smile.)

E-mail before coffee--never!

I love this! And the cell phone thing is so true. The other day, I let it run down too much, and I was panicked - actually, it's my only phone because I refuse to sign up with SBC again after the horrible experience I had in Noble. But I have called someone inside the house to come out and help with groceries - or to remember to bring something with them when they come to the car.

I feel better knowing that these neuroses are common enough to make this kind of list. ;-)

EMail before coffee? Please! Is this really an either/or false dichotomy? Doesn't everyone have the coffee maker on the desk? Is that wrong? :)

Amanda McCabe said...

Exactly--I usually drink my coffee WHILE emailing. :) And I confess to calling people on the phone instead of actually going to their door and knocking to see if they're ready to leave. Is that so wrong???
