“My brain has too many tabs open”

"My brain has too many tabs open”—that is, a person (like a computer) is too busy with too much work—is a jocular one-line saying that has been printed on many images. “I feel like my brain has too many tabs open and I’m leaking memory” was posted on Twitter on January 15, 2009.

“My brain has too many tabs open” was posted on Twitter on May 5, 2010. “My mind is like an internet browser. I have 19 tabs open, 3 of them are frozen, and I have no idea where the music is coming from” is a related saying.

Is your computer running at a turtle’s pace because you have just way too many tabs open? Can you not see the Gchat alert blinking because your tab has been compressed to the size of pinky toenail? Does it sometimes feel like your brain has too many tabs open?

The perfect shirt for geeks. And well, all busy parents, everywhere.

The perfect shirt for geeks. And well, all busy parents, everywhere.

If you work on your computer all day like I do, and well, like many of us do these days, my guess is that you can totally relate to this funny geeky shirt. But really, any busy parent can probably relate to the sentiment too because oh the juggling, right?

I’m guilty of having at least 10 tabs open at a time, maybe more, on my computer, and well, let’s be honest here, in my life. With kids, and work, and um, kids. Sound familiar?
