your biggest concern about your daughters graduation is if you'll have beer ready for the reception.
Where the heck are we going?  And what's with this hand basket?

The weather guy mentions the coming Spring Equinox and it sends you into a daydream about new hop varieties.

You are a habitual airlock sniffer.

When you come across random numbers in ounces and grams you immediately start to formulate a beer recipe in your head.

You get up in the middle of the night to check your fermentation and possibly move your fermenter to a cooler/warmer spot if needed.

I was VERY surprised when my girlfriend informed me that she does NOT find the airlock blub blubs extremely relaxing...
