    Hahaha I have no doubt she'll do it.

    I cringe everytime I hear my brother say 'lol' Yes, indeed, he says it alot. I blame WoW!!

    It's sad when an acronym becomes a substitute for real laughter...

    Sad? I would say silly. In all honesty if you're not actually luaghing then it really was not funny.

    laughter is not a just a reward for a good joke.

    Laughter is universal and lifts the mood of those who hear it. It is a gift to loved ones.

    the word 'lol' does not triger the same inate response.

    I think it is a shame aswell.

    ... You think up jokes like this:

    Oh, they've already released the title of the 8th Harry Potter book: Harry Potter and the Army of Darkness.

    Punchline: "This... is my BROOMSTICK!"

    This amuses me, yet at the same time half-fills me with shame. [face_blush]

    Oh dear, that's hilarious...[face_dancing]

    I may use that one on my friend who loves Army of Darkness but hates "Harry Potter" and fry his brain with the dichotomy.

    Be seeing you,

    YKYAGW...

    You go to three different Big W stores (Chermie, Stafford and finally the City) in order to track down a pair of Wonder Woman pyjamas in your size! :D Was sooooo excited when I found them, I very nearly *squee*ed audibly (those present at my discovery of the Classic Leia Galactic Hero will know what that sounds like). Hooray for Geeky pyjamas!! :D

    I also bought Wonder Woman underwear....

    I am such a geek....

    This could come under 'you know you're a bored geek when...' but nonetheless...

    You know you're a geek when you're restocking the pencils at work, and on top of the box is a triangular piece of foam. You then proceed to wrap rubber bands around two corners of the foam triangle and then draw on big eyes and a nose. The product? Yoda.

    I left him there for the ladies to laugh at :p I doubt they'll know who he is :p

    Oh and I bought a Wonder Woman t shirt at JJ's :D

    You feel the overwhelming desire to get down on your hands and knees and worship your new 24" widescreen, sitting side by side with a 19" normal.

    I really, really do!

    YKYAGW...

    You seek out fellow geeks at your place of employment (or not employment :p)

    You then plan with said Geek, to make 'Geek Pride' badges :p

    You're explaining the expansion dynamics of the universe.

    [face_worried]...or is that on the verge of Nerdy?

    YKYAGW in the space of a minute you:

    -- decide the world is playing the wrong audio track because you've run into several people speaking a language other than english;

    -- quote the Aliens adage, "Stop your grinnin' and drop your linen - found em" upon finding your elusive door pass; and

    -- hear Yoda in your head telling you not to judge the very short man who just walked past by his size...
