You know you are living in the year 2004 when…
- Your reason for not staying in touch with family is because they do not have e-mail.
- You have a list of 15 phone numbers to reach your family of three.
- Your grandmother asks you to send her a JPEG file of your newborn so she can create a screen saver.
- You pull up in your own driveway and use your cell phone to see if anyone is home.
- Every commercial on television has a web site address at the bottom of the screen.
- You buy a computer and 3 months later it’s out of date and sells for half the price you paid.
- Leaving the house without your cell phone, which you didn’t have the first 20 or 30 years of your life, is now a cause for panic and you turn around to go get it.
- Using real money, instead of credit or debit, to make a purchase would be a hassle and take planning.
- You just tried to enter your password on the microwave.
- You consider second-day air delivery painfully slow.
- Your dining room table is now your filing cabinet.
- Your idea of being organized is multiple-colored Post-it notes.
- You hear most of your jokes via e-mail instead of in person.
- You get an extra phone line so you can get phone calls.
- You disconnect from the Internet and get this awful feeling, as if you just pulled the plug on a loved one.
- You get up in the morning and go online before getting your coffee.
- You wake up at 2 AM to go to the bathroom and check your e-mail on your way back to bed.
- You start tilting your head sideways to smile. 🙂
Oh and happy Australia Day, be sure to drink, say g’day a lot and have a BBQ. 🙂
