Clearly, this is an addiction
Look at this picture...need I say more? This is what I've been organizing the past two days as part of the big move. Can you believe it?

This is what you get when you marry a man who is addicted to technology! Now I'm not talking about your average joe who likes gadgets. I'm talking about a guy who was on the Internet long before the American public knew what it was or what it did.

I'm talking about a guy who has owned every type of cell phone, Palm, PDA and Blackberry with every adaptor, charger, and wireless bluetooth available. And, you know it's a true obsession when you own gadgets before the rest of the world has had a chance to catch up. For example, you know those little webcams that you connect to your computer. Well we owned one of those about 7 years ago along with a microphone so we could "talk over the computer for free" and see our long distance family members. The only problem was that the people we were trying to talk to had to own a webcam and a microphone. At the time, the only person he could talk to was some guy from Brazil! It's amazing how most people own these products today, but we had them when no one else even knew they existed.

We also have enough cables and wires to open our own electronic store. We have every voltage of adpators, speakers, USB's, CAT5's, chargers, phone wires, hubs, routers, cases, etc. You name it, we've got it!

And the crazy part, this list does not include our laptops, desktop computers, televisions, TiVo/DVR's surround sound, voice over IP, wireless routers, remote controls, (even for the ceiling fan) Hi-Fi's, mp3 players, digital cameras, software and many others I can't think of right now. So honey, if you're reading this. I think I'm right...you do have an OCD with electronics and my picture posted above is to prove it.

Not too mention, I didn't EVEN attempt to bring out what is stored in the garage... :-)

Now bloggity friends, please make no mistake. I love my "teched-out" husband! I have more toys and gadgets than I ever wanted. I just get so amazed when I see all of our outdated collection of electronics. Which happens around here about every 6 months.

I'm beyond amazed you would even attempt to organize that stuff, T-Lo. You can't believe how fast I would toss it all into a big box and duck tape it shut. Good grief!

I get stressed out if I even look at all the cables and wires coming out of the back of our computer setup. I just don't look. :-)

Like Barb I'm impressed that he knows what to do with all that stuff.
I must confess, that when I thought the house was sold and I packed nearly everything up, I had more boxes of books than I care to own up to. And yet - I couldn't find a single one I wanted to get rid of.

I would be amazed, but I'm in a similar boat. Only Terry does his best to keep it out of sight!

My hubby is the same way. We have cables and software coming out of our ears around here too! Gotta love 'em!

My wife would emphatize with you. If it were up to her, we'd be rich if we converted our garage into a junk yard.

Have a great weekend. Do visit me online if you have the time.

I don't even do that anymore. We have five boxes of that stuff. (hubby's a web delveloper). I have given up on keeping it organized. I used to get my label maker out and label each cord to what it went to. But i give up there's too many.

OMG!!

This photo so hit home with my own tech husband. I so know what you're talking about. Especially the line "I'm talking about a guy who was on the Internet long before the American Public knew what it was or what it did." That is SO my Tim! LOL

As I'm typing this, he's actually standing over my shoulder pointing out what everything in the photo is. . . Ahh yes, men and their addictions.

Wow, that's crazy! I totally understand though... We probably have about 3/4 of that stuff sitting in the extra closet! It drives me nuts!

YOu need a trench coat. Stuff it full of all those wires and stand outside of Best Buy or something. As people walk in, flash them your wares (I MEAN the gadgets) and tell them you've got great deals on everything.

Then you won't have to pack it.

Of course, you probably won't be packing anything from your jail cell, but that's just location!

; )

Yes, this pile scares me. You must know what you are doing to organize it.
