You know you're 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 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 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.
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.

This was passed around at school. Any additions to be made?

You don't know any phone numbers by heart any more - they are all programmed into your cell phone!

Hey, whoa, hey, #s 5, 10, 14, & 15 were an "ouch." Hitting too close to the bone....

Thanks for the laugh Sister Steph. :)

I get my coffee then go online. Otherwise you've nailed it.

From the "this really happens in my world" files:

You try to open the door to your house using your car's remote keyless entry key fob.

You get a used car without a key fob and other people who use your car have no idea how to unlock the doors anymore. Much less open the trunk.

You think it's downright stupid that they haven't started inventing tv's with a button that makes the remote control beep so you can find it, like your cordless phone has when you've lost the handset.

Tea first, then online...otherwise, yup...though husband is far less a product of the age, and tends to chunter and mutter if I exhibit too many 2005 characteristics in one day which can make life more interesting. Do I go with instinct or slightly bitter experience?!
