    Because she's imaginary? j/k :D

    You know you're a geek when:

    Your screensaver is your girlfriend
    You actually believe talking to the computer will make a difference.

    the movie-reality is disturbed when you notice a PC or similar device comes on screen, and they do something with it that is totally impossible (like "uploading" a virus in an alien mothership...), and thus you can't enjoy the movie anymore.
