    I found this somewhere

    1. You giggle whenever you use the colors F0CCED, EFF0FF and 44DDDD
    2. You’re in the sun and you look around for a Drop Shadow to sit under.
    3. You give your relatives a lecture about color spaces and profiles when you email them your vacation photos.
    4. Seing someone use Lens Flare or Comic Sans adversely affects your blood-pressure
    5. You maintain a grid system for your refrigerator magnets.
    6. You organise your CD collection according to the Pantone chart.
    7. You sit at work for eight hours straight just looking at your monitor, waiting for a spark of inspiration that doesn't come.
    8. You're up 'til 5am because you came up with the best idea ever while brushing your teeth.
    9. The hottest dream you ever had was "Trace contour... Find Edges... Pinch... Extrude... Smudge Stick... Motion Blur.... Sprayed Strokes..."
    10. You know Lorem Ipsum by heart.
    11. Your kid knows Lorem Ipsum by heart.
    12. The preschool teacher complains your child won't color inside or outside the lines – only indicate colors on a separate sheet.
    13. Activating your entire font collection makes your computer crash – and you're running OSX.
    14. You deliberately butcher your perfectly cross browser compatible site in IE by placing a “Too Cool for IE” banner on it.
    15. You prefer a Layer Style of 50% Opacity (or less) on your wife’s Satin.
    16. You spend $200 on a font for your personal website because "it's the only one where the lower-case g is just right..."
    17.Looking at a menu make you go "hmmm, ITC Baskerville italic" rather than "mmmm, lunch!"
    18. And when you finally order, you go for Layer Based Slices with Grain Texture...
    19. You use words about fonts you dislike that other normal people reserve for fascist dictators and serial killers.
    20. Apple+Z is the first thing that goes through your mind if you drop and break something.
    21. You refer to colleagues as Strict, Transitional, Loose and the Future Unemployed.
    22. You refer to your privates as "the Magic Wand".
    23. You actually understand this post and pass it on to your friends.

    Those people who think they know everything are a great annoyance to those of us who do.

    Didn't get a damn bit of that, but it reminds me of the movie '23'.

    I'm not creative enough either, but having used Photoshop for a while, I find these very funny (even though I might not relate to all of them).
