...when you notice the license plate on the car ahead of you at the stop light says NKT 275 (or AC 128, or CE 1, or MN 3205, etc) and your heart starts going a little faster.

...when you wonder what the taper of the pot is on your girlfriend's deluxe vibrator.

....when you come to love Bollywood movies because of the "warm analog delay" in all the musical numbers.

....when you buy tuna just because the tins make such great enclosures.

....when you realize you've spent more in 9v batteries last month than your old heroin addiction.

....when you start sobbing like a baby when your wife gives you a bottle of tinning solution for your 20th wedding anniversary.

....when its 11PM and a tough choice as to whether you should take advantage of how hot your iron is or how hot your partner is.

When you look at your girlfriend, and wonder if Burr-Brown makes anything to decrease her hiss and noise factor. :D

Then you look at her again, and you wonder what diodes would increase her "drive". :twisted:

...at 2:00AM, you begin wondering if there's something edible inside the leaded plastic packages that you have soldered onto a perf board in the last 11 hours.

When you buy so much fabric to cover your pedals that your wife starts calling you Martha Stewart.

You buy your son 5 flashing ring pops because you think you can salvage the red blinking LED's from them.

You buy a Sobe drink that comes in the metal bottle because you think you can incorporate it into a guitar effect somehow.

There is a cool looking box of SPAM at supermarket next to tuna and sardines... Dont know if I can eat SPAM but that would be a cool distortion box, real spammer... Tuna can might be cool for fuzzface anyway, but maybe SPAM for some heavier metal sound... (edited: some day I can not resist myself, I will buy it anyway)
