How to tell that you have entered a New Year...

You enter your password on the microwave.

You haven't played solitaire with a real deck of cards in years.

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

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

You chat several times a day with a stranger from Canada, but you haven't spoken with your next door neighbour all last year.

Your daughter just bought a CD of all the records your college roommate used to play.

You check the ingredients on a can of chicken noodle soup to see if it contains Echinacea.

Your grandmother clogs up your e-mail inbox asking 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You buy a computer and a week later it is out of date and now sells for half the price you paid.

The concept of using real money instead of credit or debit to make a purchase is foreign to you.

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

Your idea of being organised is multi-coloured Post-it notes.

You hear most of your jokes via e-mail instead of in person.

You're reading this.
