You know you are watching too much 24, ...
... when you report any event with, "The following takes place between 1 pm and 2 pm ..."
... when you pick up phone, you say your name first instead of "Hello"
... when asked for your favourite super-hero, you respond with Jack Bauer.
... when somebody is not on his/her seat, you think he/she is a mole.
... when you ask for coordinates instead of address to locate your friend.
... when instead of your spelling your name as N-A-M-E, you say November-Alpha-Mike-Echo
... when you think of invoking 25th Amendment when your boss disagrees with you in the meeting.
... when you ask for immunity from the president, in return of the information that you sold out to your rivals.
... when you say "9 o' clock" instead of "to your left"
... when you'd rather be outlaw than follow order of your superior for "greater good".
... when you are jobless enough to write such a post in first place!!
UPDATE : one more,
... when you change your cell phone ringtone to that of CTU. (I and Praveen just did!)

I, for one, stayed awake whole night when Barack Obama made history on November 4th, 2008. Felt elated, after following US Elections for almost a year, Barack Obama won. After reading whole lot of blogs about pre-election analysis, election analysis, post-election analysis and post-post-election analysis, I think it's time to return to the normal news. It's not going to be easy I know, I am going to end up like xkcd predicted. Nevertheless, it's worth a try. So I am putting up just a list, which I think were significant news but got burried under Obama's huge victory.
- Gagan Narang sets the world record and wins the world cup.
- BR Chopra passes away. RIP
- Rafael Nadal pulls out of year-ending Masters cup. Sad!
- Chelsea lost to AS Roma 3-1. (This one is for schadenfreude)
- Can Bobby Jindal lift GOP in 2012?
Damn it, that last one was not supposed to be included. Any way, do you think I missed anything else? Tell us!
