-Your character can't speak, and hasn't for a while, and one day someone at work says "You've been quiet lately."
And you realize just how much you've been communicating with gestures for a corresponding period of time.

-Your only reason to show up early to work is that the newday starts at the start of your shift

-You've tried italicizing words by using `i.

-You've blamed `i not working on typo gremlins.

You refuse ever to throw anything out around the house, because it may come in useful in the future... even after it has DIED.

When you dream that you're a kittymorph in a strange island where improbable things happens, then you wake up, think for a while and runs to the closest mirror just to find yourself human again (and you blame Horatio for that).


Yeah... I kinda did that.

...You dream about Failboat hot chocolate. Then wake up, and have to go out and buy the bits.

(Hmm. Does that say I'm playing too much, or Failing too much?)

You read "panther" in a book as "panthzer", do a double-take, laugh at yourself, and STILL find yourself with a craving for steak.

(I don't even EAT steak!)

Or when doing your research on the use of German armor, you have this image of a black cat with treads rolling across Russia...

When you consider Hunting for new pants. 'nuff said.

You hear the an annoying song on the radio, and bang your head against a nearby rock until it goes away.

I must break the pattern of this thread to remark that I snorted aloud at that.

When your idea of breaking the fourth wall in real life is a religious debate.

When your head banging actually works.

When you overhear a coworker discussing possible baby names that start with 'S', and the first thing that pops into your head is

-Sally
-Skidge

-Samantha
...

1. You catch yourself talking about RL prices in 'Req'.

2. You are asleep and in your dream a familiar light brown tableau appears with the words "Something Improbable!..." and the event described unfolds in your dream. Eek!

3. On your way to somewhere IRL that you will need cash, and you think: "I'll need to swing by the bank and withdraw some Req".

All of these occured in the last week.

D.

PS: I'm wondering if these should be collated into the wiki, and a link provided from the Rookie Advisory? ... You know, warn them what what to expect.


The lunatics are taking over the asylum! Come with?

....you start typing everything in your character's accent.

and speaking that way...


and when you talk about the goings-ons in the Island more than the news IRL...

That'd be me.

I was having an IM conversation with my dad while also playing I.I. and I ended up typing him something in a thick Irish accent.

also when you start narrating your IM's using a colon and color tags from the game...



and you really know you've played too much I.I. when the person on the other end of your IM conversation is doing the exact same thing

When talking to friends on Facebook chat, you try and colourize your speaking.
