    ...you think tools such as RealBasic and even the Terminal are for the babies.

    ...you wrote a script just to make typing “Bork! Bork! Bork!” faster.

    ...you think /finger humor is funny.

    ...your boyfriend spoke to your father for the first time, and it was about a computer. Sir.

    ...you are sorting through back-up CDs to make sure you have installers and your own serial numbers for installing things to your new computer…which hasn’t arrived yet.

    YMBAGI you spoke to your girlfriend’s father for the very first time, including introducing yourself, so that you could help arrange for him to buy her a new PowerBook. (See above post from Jinkies )

    YMBAGI the biggest thing you were worried about was screwing up said computer purchase.

    YMBAGI if you have spoken with your girlfriend for more than 19 hours in one 48 hour period, using the computer (Go NetFone!).

    YMBAGI you were also speaking with her on AIM and in the TMO forums at the same time.

    YMBAGI you have done the laundry with your girlfriend, again using the computer.

    YMBAGI if you continously jack up your computer in vain efforts to “fix” it, “make it better” or just to see “what this will do when I click on it”, then call Bryan up whining that “something is wrong with my computer and I don’t have a clue how it happened”

    There can be no greater love than that which makes us whole; even if it takes many loves to complete the whole.

    YMBAGI you go to a photographer to discuss wedding pictures and have more interest in his TiBook than his work.

    YMBAGI…your tattoo artist has an iBook, a G4 Tower, and a 15-inch flat-screen display, and that’s when you *really* knew you wanted to pay him the cost of 2 iPods for a tattoo.
