...You decide you care more about Volvo's than Zoning!!

More off the top of my crane:

-You realize Planners no longer drive Volvo's like they used to, because it's not the 1990s anymore and you cant stand Hybrids.

-You respect CNU more than the APA, because as postmodern as they are, at least they stand for and by something, even if it is largley (but not entirely) BS.

-You love ESRI products and spend hours putzing around on ArcMap, but to make album art for your friend's band's rather than for anything profesh!

-You shutter at the thought of having AICP attached to your name and are slightly embarrassed you ever wanted the letters in the first place.

-You would rather watch an experimental dance performance that involves whips, ropes, tire swings, baby rash ointment and audience participation via flyswatting the performers derrieres, than watch a Ted Talk by Jennifer Keesmat.

-You begin to believe in Abolishing Zoning because "hey that Kowloon walled city was pretty Punk Rock, wouldn't it be cool if we do that in Buffalo?"

Share your anecdotes! :p

[I actually AM meant to be a planner, but...]
You hate ESRI products but you want to install it again on your home computer so you can map all the counties you've been to in the US.

You roll your eyes every time someone says no based on some obscure regulation that you know if stupid.
