    Living in 2004...

    You know you're living in 2004 when...

    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 3.

    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, you still answer the phone in a business manner.

    7. You make phone calls from home, you 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 cell phone to see if
    anyone is
    home.

    13. Every commercial on television has a website at the bottom of the
    screen.

    14. 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.

    15. You get up in the morning and go online 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 #9 on this list.

    20. You actually scrolled back up to check that there wasn't a #9 on this
    list.

    Well, none of the cell phone stuff applies to me. I'm probably one of the last souls in the developed world that doesn't have (want, need, cares for, tolerates, etc.) a cell phone.

    Actually these guys figured out what to do with cell phones: http://www.esato.com/news/article.php/id=304 ;D

    I'm not overjoyed at the fact that I need a cell phone, but it is nice to have sometimes. Most of the time, it just sits on my belt, collecting dust, bumps, and scrapes.

    Cheers
