You may be a starduster if...

Post by svanimpe »

- you've started giving names to the dust in your house

- instead of looking for your glasses in the morning, you try to find the focus bar

- you're getting worried when you don't see Larry, Curly and Moe on your car windshield

- there's a gutter in your mouse mat from rolling over the same two inches over and over again

- when you're channel flipping and an old episode of The Simpsons comes on, you think "obviously a calibration movie"

-you start arguing with yourself a lot more " That's a track.....no it's not!...yes it is!.......NOT!....."

- you do the things you laugh at your husband for,like shouting at the computer screen for not loading the movie faster.

... you are developing an acute case of carpal tunnel
... watching the movies gives you the strong urge to pee, but you can hold it.
... you add a picture of a "track" to your "amazing pics" bookmark folder
... you get the Blue Screen of Death with: "corrupted memory 0x053467B machine code error originating from F:\Documents and Settings\Darth Vader\Mozilla\Firefox\Cache\movieid666"
... you excitedly explain the project to your friends, who proclaim a deep sadness that they won't be able to participate because they're too busy being bored

Hi! First post and even though I'm just getting started this is too true for me! :D

You continually lie to yourself:

I'll stop after I view x more movies.
I'll stop after I view x+1 more movies.
I'll stop after I view x+5 more movies.
I'll stop after I view x+10 more movies.
.
.

lie = lim (I'll stop after I view x+y more movies.)
.......y->infinity

- when you close your eyes to sleep at night and all you see are tracks....or are they??!

- when your daily workout consists of beads of perspiration dripping down your face as you try to desperately to increase rank...

- when your vision starts to blur and eyes start to cross

- when online "dustbusting" is more urgent than online bill paying...

- when you lose all sense of probability and perspective and start compiling names for stardust particles...
