when you look out the window and comments about how much snow that there's outside.
And your GF tells you that it stopped snowing two days ago.

I used to type Y before I typed in other games like I do in CS, so I quit playing everything else except CS.
I also do that thing where you goto say something and you think, of how you could do it in C++.
Sometimes if my dog barks I try and find the X in the upper right hand corner. Then I may put a piece of paper on its back and try to Hexedit so it won't bark.

Yeah, I laugh at all the computer jokes that people go, "nerd" and stuff. My damned uncle called me a nerd when he saw my shirt that said "Theres no place like 127.0.0.1"
