you know you live in silicon valley when...

Walking down the street with my fashionable friend "Ellie".

Me: "Those are really cute hat and gloves. Where did you get them?"

Ellie: "The hat is from Old Navy. The gloves are from Juicy."

Me: "I should go buy a hat like it. But shopping is so draining... I guess you love shopping."

Ellie: "I could shop every day, for hours."

Me: "You must think it's weird that I hate shopping. Since you love it so much, it must seem strange."

Ellie: "No, there are plenty of things that I don't like, which everybody else likes."

Me: [expecting her to name some universally loved activities, like going to the beach or really good restaurants]

Ellie: "Like... programming."

Hmm... you could combine the two skills and write a program to shop online for you!

Programmers generally don't make their friends (or their SOs) sit and watch while they code, though...

Annady, if there were a program to shop online for me, I would use it. People keep talking about how one day we'll scan our bodies and a program will find clothing that suits our shape. I want to use this service.
