Humor: 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.

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

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 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 television has a web site 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. Amen to that!!!!!

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

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

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

13. Even worse, 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 actually scrolled back up to check that there wasn't a #9 on this list.

AND NOW U R LAUGHING at yourself.

Go on, forward this to your friends. You know you want to!

December dreaming

What a month.

I worked at a major computer company from September to December and, boy, was it an eye-opening experience. This is the second time I ignored my instincts to get out and will be the last time. I learned a lot, though, about myself and about people. I plan to incorporate the latter in future novels. Hmmm. Villains or victims?

The free-lancing gig is going okay at the moment. Recap: was offered a job writing posts on an automotive weblog ("blog"). While finding the article posts has been easy, writing them is time-consuming. But it does bring (some) funds and, more importantly, it's building up my portfolio. And there are some nice perks. I'll be attending a couple of auto shows at the end of this year and the beginning of next year as media. Ah. All those cars and no crowds to deal with.

Celebrated the holidays three days in a row. Saw my sister and her fiance (sp?) with our parents on Saturday; saw my parents and other sister and her family on Sunday, and celebrated with spouse's family yesterday. I know I've gained weight: certain pants are tight again. Ugh. Hitting the gym tonight.

Will be making 2006 another record year.

Who links to me?
