Signs You're Spending Too Much Time On Message Boards

Postby JTWood » Sat Feb 11, 2006 4:14 am

Here's my personal lists of things I've caught myself doing recently. Care to add your own?
  1. You are working in a word processing program and type [b] or [i] when you want to highlight some text.
  2. You are irritated because you can't post a phpBB smiley to go along with the e-mail you are about to send.
  3. You refer to people at your favorite message board as "friends" or "someone I know..."
  4. You Google your screen name and your own posts make up the whole first page of hits.

Uh oh!!! :-o I think that fits me, sort of. I think my original web page comes up on the first page of hits, but I have a lot of posts from the Football Cafe on there. :*)

#2 and #3 for me. :-b
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

LOL - we were going to the movies once and I didn't want to go see the one that she suggested. I told her that I heard that it sucked. She asked who told me. I was going to say Amazinz or Kimchi but that would have sounded pretty stupid. :*)

I find myself trying to do #2 all the time.

There will come a day when Barry Bonds leaves baseball, and everything about the game will be the better for it.

Jeez, I do the smiley thing all the time...

MrsAcidRock refers to you guys as 'your friends' as in 'oh, I see your talking to your friends now'...even back when I was just lurking!

I'll be telling my girlfriend a story about a thread here that I heard from "someone I know" and she'll be like "is this from your baseball 'friends'?"
