    1. Your house plants are alive and you can’t smoke any of them.
    2. Having sex in a single bed is out of the question.
    3. You keep more food than beer in the fridge.
    4. 6:00am is when you get up, not when you go to bed.
    5. You hear your favorite song in an elevator.
    6. You watch the weather channel.
    7. Your friends marry and divorce instead of “hook up” and “break up”.
    8. You go from 130 days of vacation time to 14.
    9. Jeans and sweater no longer qualify as “dressed up”.
    10. You’re the one calling the police because those %&@# kids next door won’t turn down the stereo.
    11. Older relatives feel comfortable telling sex jokes around you.
    12. You don’t know what time McDonalds close any more.
    13. Your car insurance goes down and your car payments go up.
    14. You feed your pet Science Diet instead of McDonalds leftovers.
    15. Sleeping on the couch makes your back hurt.
    16. You take naps from noon to 6pm.
    17. Dinner and a movie is the whole date instead of the beginning of one.
    18. Eating a basket of chicken wings at 3am would severely upset, rather than settle, your stomach.
    19. If you’re a female, you go to the drug store for ibuprofen and antacid, not Condoms and pregnancy tests.
    20. A £1.99 bottle of wine is no longer “pretty good stuff”.
    21. You actually eat breakfast food at breakfast time.
    22. “I just can’t drink the way I used to…” replaces “I’m never going to drink that much again”
    23. 90% of the time you spend in front of the computer is for real work.
    24. When you find out your friend is pregnant you congratulate her instead of asking “Oh S*$#! What happened!?”
    25. You read this entire list looking desperately for one sign that doesn’t apply to you and can’t find one to save your sorry old butt.

    Careful Josh. You are on the slippery slope to being grown up if you are old enough to know what a VCR is!!!!:taunt:

    I can add craving 'A Nice Cup of Tea' :rolleyes: I used to only drink squash and laugh at people who 'needed' their tea, now I get through around 4 cups of the stuff a day :lol:

    The other is listening to Radio 2 instead of Capital :eek3:
