...if you'd rather read a new 'ible now than eat or use the toilet. Which is why your bathroom now has a dorm fridge, microwave, and a swing-out computer rest, all within reach of the only place to sit. Plus broadband.

... if you slow down as you drive past interesting dumpsters.

... if you always have your multi-tool in your pocket, even around the house.

... if people are more likely to ask you to fix a broken door than the janitor.

... if people are more likely to pass scrap on to you than to the recycle bin.

... if people don't worry about strange smells or loud noises, they just assume.

Scary how closely every one of those fits me. There are two multi-tools in my pocket right now, a Leatherman Squirt S4 for cutting and small stuff, and a heavier-duty folding screwdriver-pliers set.

... if to get you out of her hair, your mother tells you to "go blow something up."
... if "shop" means "wherever I last left my tools."
... if every day you decide which unfinished project to work on next.
... if one of those unfinished projects is dismantling something to get the parts you need for another project.
... if you check the same garage sale multiple times, just in case they have something new.

They make medical tape ?? boy all these years I've been using PVC electrical tape, it comes in several colors, I like Black it contrasts nicely against the toilet paper, it's water proof, shook resistant, C.S.A., UL, and V.D.E. Approved, I'd like to see a medical tape with those kind of ratings and it even peels off nice and leaves the hairs in the place, and most important of all while your taping up your fingers you don't need a scissors to cut it with....
