Rave of the Day for April 1st: 

This one has made the rounds a few times, but I can't remember if I've posted it here before. Thanks to bejo for this latest version....

Signs of Times

• You just tried to enter your password on the microwave.

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

• You call your son's beeper to let him know it's time to eat. He e-mails you back from his bedroom, "What's for dinner?"

• Your daughter sells Girl Scout Cookies via her web site.

• You chat several times a day with a stranger from South Africa, but you haven't spoken with your next-door neighbour yet this year.

• 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 website address at the bottom of the screen.

• You buy a computer and six months later it is out of date and now sells for half the price you paid.

• Leaving the house without your cell phone, which you didn't have five years ago, is cause for panic.

• Using real money, instead of credit or debit cards, to make a purchase would be a hassle and take planning.

• Cleaning up the dining room means getting the fast food bags out of the back seat of your car.

• Your reason for not staying in touch with family is that they do not have e-mail addresses.

• Your dining room table is now your flat 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 morning and go online before getting your coffee.

• You wake up at 5am to go to the bathroom, and check your e-mail on your way back to bed.

• You start tilting your head sideways to smile.

• You're reading this.

• Even worse; you're going to forward it to someone!
