    ...you see a hurricane coming and you ask SJ to run by your place to see if it's okay

    ...you get fired from your job and you're happy about it

    ...you see a person's screen name and you know their real name, too

    ...your spouse/SO knows who you're talking about when you refer to gttbm or LL or RO

    ...you know more about what's going on in a SoWaller's family than you do your own

    ...you're late for your work-out because you're responding to a post

    ...you've stopped watching TV or reading books because SoWal is your best source of information

    ...you have a mental image of the regulars even if you actually have no idea what they look like

    ...you check SoWal.com even when you're in SoWal

    ...dinner is late, the kids are starving, the house looks like a bomb hit it, and your spouse walks in and says "what did you do today" even though s/he knows the answer...

    Any more?

    Add to this list...

    When you decide (after a horrific hurricane) to keep your house mainly because you wouldn't have a good reason to log on otherwise.

    When you walk up to a guy on the beach, ask if he's _______ and get it right on the first try! (Yes, I mean you.)

    When your spouse no longer asks, "Who in the world are you talking about?" when you update him on a South Walton thread saga.

    When you get a call from your house painter and you can tell him "Congrats!" on your cousin's upcoming wedding plans and your mom says, "That 'little girl' lives right down the street."

    When you get a PM from a person less than half your age who dove from your third-story deck into your swimming pool on a recent visit!!! :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek:

    Mine is not far off mark, but you know you live at the beach when on a Novemeber morning (like today), you begin to go out the door to work, and realize you forgot to put on a shirt. (Yes, it really happened.) :D

    Ok...I have a few more. I was eating an ice cream sandwich and it was dripping on me.

    When you play "Is that Kurt" with every person on the beach with a camera.
    When J-Funn text you "Sowal Now"
    When J-Funn gets mad when you are just plain ready to go to bed and she yells because she is posting.
    Talking about Sowal in serious conversation.
    You have been blackmailed with a picture in a compromising situation.
    When you get excited when new smilies come and sad when some go...and then really excited when Kurt brings one back and names it after you.

    There are many more. But I have to go get my laundry.

    some more

    ...when you haven't posted in a while and a search party goes looking for you

    ...when you look forward to your morning cup of coffee "with" your SoWal friends

    ...when your friends are on SoWal and you know more about them from what they're posting than you do from actually talking to them in person
