You know you're addicted to the Lexicon when...

Post by Alphie » Thu Oct 18, 2007 11:21 pm

We had a request to start this topic taking the Twilight obsession one step further. So, given how popular the "You know you've read Twilight too many times" thread has been, let's see how this one goes. I'm interested to see what some of you come up with!

How about I start us off with -

You know you are addicted to the Lexicon when you have it set as your home page.

(And um, would you believe that the lex is NOT my homepage. No. I have yahoo open up so I can see weather and now how to dress my kids first thing in the morning or what movie is playing. But the lex is my second stop on the internet 99% of the time.)

you see a red head and say or think of, "PEL!" XP It's happened once or twice before...

The Lexicon isn't set as my homepage either. Goodsearch.com is. But the Lexicon is the 4th on my strip on my browser at the top.

When you're running your errands throughout the day and you start thinking about what all your friends are talking about and what good questions/topics your missing out on.

You know you are addicted to the Lex when you find yourself constantly telling your husband and friends all the little injokes and things that make you smile because of the Lex. I was unsuccesfully trying to explain the term "La Tua Cheesecake" to my husband last night as we ate some....

ROTFLOL, I totally do that too!

You know you are addicted to the Lex when you are on vacation with your family and sneak out to the hotel lobby to check your Lex PMs.

When you have to try really hard not to kick your kids off the computer when they're doing homework so that you can get on the Lex.

sounds like me! i freaked out when that happened..and the last time too!.. it was worse this time though because i was at school and i thought the stupid system had blocked the site and i was freaking out! i went through about 500000 different proxy servers and none worked! i even tried to hack the blocking system (unsuccesfully hehe)... but then when it wasn't working at home either, i realised what was going on and calmed down several notches.. but still several above sanity :P

talking of school, when you spend every computer class on the lexicon and so your friend gets interested and starts reading over your shoulder and asking if anyone has posted a response yet because she wants to know others views too! haha, and she hasn't even read the books! (shame)

when you spend your time trying to come up with thoughtful responses to as many topics as possible, and get very anxious to the state of panic when your parents shut off your internet and you can't share your new inciteful views on something Twilight.

the forum is your homepage :).. second stop on the daily-web-search being the main page of the lexicon...
