    Hey all, so today I just noticed how much of a geek I am. I am so used to OS X that when I am out and looking for something, or looking in a book for info etc, I always feel like hitting Command + F to find stuff! Share your geek stories!

    When I am at the copy machine, each time the scanner runs across the page I exclaim out loud: "Command + C!"

    When I leave work for the day I exclaim: "Command + Q!" as I walk out the door.

    I'll often use the term "click" accidently.
    Let's say I'm helping someone fill out a form that has checkboxes, I might instruct them to "click on-- I mean, check this one..."

    I'm often on my laptop and need to change the brightness setting depending on where I am so one day I walked into my room and it was kinda dark so I thought to myself, I need to adjust the brightness setting and pictured the F2 button on my macbook.

    You write an essay on paper and spend 30 seconds looking for the spell check and save functions. < ok it was an 8am exam.

    You check the live webcam to see what the weather is like outside , instead of walking a few steps to the window around corner.

    You try to Command+I a package to figure out its weight(size)

    Try over 14,000!

    You know you're a geek when you instantly think of the opening bars to the Red Dwarf theme when Adiums log-on sample plays (on the japanese train station sound pack).

    I feel good when I add memory to my Mac, replace PDA's screen, fix some software glitches. Those are my geek moments.
