1. You accidentally enter your password on the microwave.

2. You haven't played solitaire with real cards in years.

3. You have a list of 15 phone numbers to reach your family of four.

4. You e-mail the person who works at the desk next to you.

5. Your reason for not staying in touch with friends and family is

that they don't have e-mail addresses.

6. You go home after a long day at work and still answer the phone in

a business manner.

7. You make phone calls from home and accidentally dial "9" to get an

outside line.

8. You've sat at the same desk for four years and worked for three

different companies.

10. You learn about your redundancy on the 11 o'clock news.

11. Your boss doesn't have the ability to do your job.

12 You pull up in your own driveway and use your mobile phone to see

if anyone is home to help you carry in the groceries.

13. Every commercial on television has a web site at the bottom of the

screen.

14. Leaving the house without your mobile phone, which you didn't have

for 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.

15. You get up in the morning and go on line before getting your coffee.

16. You start tilting your head sideways to smile. :)

17. You're reading this and nodding and laughing.

18. Even worse, you know exactly to whom you are going to forward this

message.

19. You are too busy to notice there was no number 9 on this list.

20. You actually scrolled back up to check that there wasn't a number

9 on this list.
:) :) :)

Dial-up? Isn't that phoning your mum?

** Seeing A'dam I thought I would try doing some Patatje Oorlog again - for old times sake. Yum. Burp. Fook. Now I remember why I usually stood by while my ex used to buy that gunk, hehe.

Now I have to wait an hour before I can go to bed and its already late.

Short :-hijack Nice site Rolf! Liked this entry:

Habanero Peppers
(Mexico Yucatan Peninsula) Green when unripe, bright orange or red when ripe. Hottest pepper known, coming in at over 300,000 Scoville Units. The "Scotch Bonnet" is closely related, if not the same pepper. They are both Capsicum Chinenses. In response to the description "much hotter than jalapenos, " Dan writes: Sure, just like a forest fire is "much hotter" than a summer's day. I have a habanero pepper plant, and they're best treated like plutonium.

Now have a look at my Jalapeno, Scotch Bonnet and Habanero plants :D

Totally OT ...

As anticipated - the weird dish of fries+mayo+onion or 'patatje Oorlog' to the locals - sucks! I feel like I want to give birth to a football and I don't have a birth canal.

'O'-red Mark.

How need to scroll ??? , your screen should be big enough for the list to fit on one screen.
