    ...whenever someone mentions a US state you think about which FF region it's in
    ...you are used to have people around you to talk SW with even in real life
    ...you don't get embarrassed when running around in public dressed out as your favourite character, since there's usually a bunch of other people doing it as well
    ...someone mentions trouble with the post office and your reply is "at least it didn't get stuck in Wales"

    OK, so I'm not coming up with any more at the moment, so now it's your turn to post more reasons...

    ...you have to explain why you are going to meet people from all over the world in a foreign city and how you get to know them and you can't just answer it with "It's a FF meeting, I met them at the FF boards.".

    (Ok, just a quick, maybe more later. ;) )

    ....when considering on whether or not to take a job transfer to a new area you check to see how active their FF is first.

    ....you regularly type "FF" or say "FF" and your audience understands what you are saying.

    When you started dating because the characters you RPG'd had a thing for each other I figured he'd like it. But when you break up the FF group is great to have on your side [face_devil]

    ... you can mention obscure characters and everyone knows who you are talking about.
    ... you are out shopping and you pick up an item and say "This will be good for my (insert current prop or costume being worked on)"
    ... you don't mind bragging about your FF to random strangers.

    [face_laugh] That's what my parents say, when I'm going to a meeting. "Is it a meeting with these SW guys?" having a weird / not understandable expression on their face.

    I know that look from my mother's face, Sabine. She also thinks I am as mad as the people that I meet now & then. She even gave out to me that I forced poor Bouke to join me for some events (= Bielefeld, Hanover & Berlin). He would be such a nice decent guy. Not such a silly person as me who loves princess Leia!
