YOU KNOW YOU ARE LIVING IN 2008 when...............
You accidentally enter your PIN 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.
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.
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 even 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
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.

spelling had some room for improvement and has
accepted a 5- year
phase-in plan that would become known as "Euro-English".
In the first year, "s" will replace the soft "c". Sertainly, this will make
the sivil servants jump with joy. The hard "c"
will be dropped in favour of
This should klear up konfusion, and keyboards kan have one
There will be growing publik enthusiasm in the sekond year when the
troublesome "ph" will be replaced with "f". This will make words like
In the 3rd year, publik akseptanse of the ne w spelling kan

where more komplikated changes are possible.

always ben a deterent to akurate
speling. Also, al wil agre that the
horibl mes of the silent "e" in
the languag is disgrasful and it should go away.
