    131. You find yourself correcting your spelling/grammar from a post ages ago. You can tell I've been recently reading a thread I posted to LONG ago because under my posts, the 'last edited date' will be current on some of them.

    132 - when you sleep with the laptop in the bed with you, and you wake up randomly in the middle of the night to check allnurses.com to see if anyone posted something new.

    132 - when you have a seperate folder that holds all the threads that you book marked.

    133 - when you find yourself reading all the threads from the very beginning and book mark the threads you liked, and GO BACK to read them every now and again, when there isn't any new threads around.

    You're scrolling through the threads on Allnurses.con and feel someone vigorously shaking your shoulder and you hear:
    "You need to get off the computer. Your baby is crowning!"
    You're thinking "Wow! Where am I. I didn't know I was pregnant. Who's this guy beside my bed saying 'Push, darling, push.' He looks kind of familiar."

    when you start at the END of a thread and work your way back through the whole thing, cuz you just want to be current, after all! But... you just cant stop checking what everybody said!
