You know you've spent too much time on the EF when...

..people in real life call you by your username.

..you wish you could groan and thank people in real life.

..you respect and admire forum legends.

..you call mods the *dark force".

..you have dreams about KFC.

..you hear somebody speak English at the grocery store, you immediately ask them if they are on the forum.

..you answer more posts than emails on a daily basis.

..keep wondering whether DB really looks like his avatar.

..you have more rep than money in your wallet.

..you know that asking whether 120k is good enough will get you a serious a** kicking.

..you know where to get brown sugar.

..random people recognize you from holding a pink balloon.


Carry on.

Well, if pink balloons are your most memorable feature and I'm faced with a room full of people I've never seen before, I'll introduce myself based on the little bit that I recognize .... if you see what I mean

Re: You know you've spent too much time on the EF when...

- You think everyone likes KFC

- You think that everyone has a sense of humor when you meet them in person

- You act like you are long lost buddies when you meet someone in person because you blobbied each other or gave thanks

- You expect LiB to really have groupies and get disappointed that those are just his imaginary friends.

- You expect LiB to actually be Denzel Washington.

- You expect Porsch to give you a No Homo hug as soon as he sees you.

Re: You know you've spent too much time on the EF when...

back on topic
...when every time you see anything which even might be just vaguely helpful to other expats you make rings round the article in the newspaper, make notes of the links, and then come on-line to put it all in here before you get side-tracked.

.. you wish you could summon LOLCATS at will in real life...
