When you purchase a cheap, but excellent umbrella that makes a delicious SHOOOMPH noise when you press the catch button, and your first thought isn't "man this is AWESOME", but rather "man this is AWESOME I should get one for [character name] too!"

As if you could buy her one. In a store. *Beats head with umbrella*

When you spend hours on ll, only to realize you haven't blinked for a really long time.

You spend an hour explaining every facet of the game to someone who's never heard of it simply so they understand why you're so happy to have killed the drive in one day.

OR

You teach a kid named Sessine to swim and wonder if he knows anybody named Zolotisty

(this actually happened in one of the swim classes I teach, I laughed SO loud. Confused the hell out of my coworkers)


Some people see the glass as half full, some people see it as half empty, I just spit in the cup until it isn't a problem anymore.

You will tell me if you meet a kid named Chimental, right Xane? Laughing Out Loud

You recieve the same gift from your friend in real life as your character did from that friend's character.

(Please believe me when I say that I'm not complaining - it's a very beautiful necklace!)

Oh, duh. As I would for any character-kid names!

Dunno who'd name their kid Chimental, but if I run into one, I'll tell ya!

Here, let me help,

Cai-Roman name meaning rejoice

Mendal-Persian name meaning wisdom

So if you run into a kid that looks both Roman and Persian, ASK HIM HIS NAME! Mr. Green

When someone in a book you're reading says your characters name, you wonder why and how they're talking to you.

When you laugh out loud when you see a pair of old boots with their laces tied together.

When you glare suspiciously at a yellow tub with "I Can't Believe It's Not Butter!" written on it.

When you're told that someone had the best steak ever, you almost ask "You went all the way to Pleasantville?"

..... you dream (from the perspective of your character) about a feature that hasn't even been released yet, and go so far as to dream it being buggy and rampaging sideways rather than forwards. Yay, titans*!

*Not to be construed as support for any sports team, as the author is a bit clueless about all of that, and doesn't even know what sport the Titans(TM) play

When you accidentally start typing with your character's accent everywhere...


...And when you've done it so much, the people you're talking to don't even ask about it anymore. xP

You wonder how much stamina you will save each day when all the snow melts.

No more snow isn't worth it, y'know?


Yes, I have a dream, of electronic sheeps and linen bedsheets. But that's not the point. Or isn't it?

16. You never sleep near any cameras in plain view, for fears they will poke you.

On that note from Sessine.

When you think you can cater an affair because of your high level of cooking.

I can tell I've played too much Island because it took me ages to grasp the 'affair' in question wasn't an illicit liaison between two furtive lovers.

Or perhaps that is just your English! I have never, ever heard someone call a party an "affair". It took me an extra read too. Razz
