    I know what you mean :p 8-}

    Feel free to add to the list if you can think of others :)

    ... while listening to the radio, songs come on and the only lyrics you can sing to them are the Star Wars parody words :p



    And from the above list, doing these is really fun :)

    ... you can sing a latin hymn while sounding like Yoda. (I can't atually do this one, but my friend Brian can, and I must say it was a riot and helped keep a sleeper of a class entertaining in high school)

    -When you are at work, and have to quickly meet a deadline, you play out Luke's lightsaber battle at the Sarlacc Pit in order to meet it.

    ...you have ever frightened away a group of people by making weird noises then said " They scare easily but they will be back, and in greater numbers."

    ...everytime someone tells you one of their deepest secrets you gloat and say, "You're far too trusting."

    ...you can't pick up a flashlight without waving it around and humming.

    ...When you can't sleep, you begin counting nerf.

    ...you see the line, "A long time ago..." and actually wonder what they're doing now.

    ...Someone mentions being abducted by little green men and you respond by pointing out that Yoda would never do such a thing!

    ...you find yourself discussing characters from the books, movies, and games as if they were actually old friends of yours.

    ...you don't need subtitles when an alien speaks in one of the movies.

    ...When you read Star Wars books, you can see it happening in your head.

    ...you know more about the history of Tatooine than you do Earth.

    ...When someone makes fun of your car you retort, "but it's the fastest hunk-a-junk in the galaxy."

    ...you think this list has some good ideas for fun things to do.

    ...When you don't like the conversation, you shoot your phone.

    ...you actually read this entire list and then thought it would be fun to add to it.

    ...your vacuum cleaner is named R2-D2.

    ...Whenever you go anywhere outside with your friends, you always walk single file, to hide your numbers.

    ...When trying unsuccessfully to snare that last Cheerio floating in your cereal bowl, you remark, "the Force is strong with this one."

    ...as a child, whenever you had broken something, your response was always, "It must've had a self-destruct mechanism. I didn't hit it that hard."

    ...the girl you've been going out with suddently tells you she loves you and you said, "I know." (or for us gals, you know you are a fan when you say "I love you." and he says "I know." and it brings a smile to your face)

    ...you tried to create a Yoda puppet out of a green sock and some buttons.

    ...you have lightsaber duelled with cardboard tubes, rolled up periodicals, common garden vegetables, and/or homemade lightsabers.

    ...you've been pulled over by a policeman and when asked to see your drivers' license you replied, "You don't need to see my identification."

    ...you have held up an onion ring and said, "Look sir, droids."

    ...everytime you put a glove on your right hand you say... "that's right, Artoo. We're going to the Dagobah System. I have a promise to keep to an old friend."

    ...you bought a white Isuzu Trooper, strictly because of the name!

    ...you've been pulled over by a cop for speeding and the only excuse you can come up with has something to do with either hydro-spanners, alluvial-dampers, or hyperdrive-motivators.

    ...you've ever gotten a hold of an answering machine message and said, "TK-421, why aren't you at your post? TK-421, do you copy?"

    ...you actually read this entire list and then thought it would be fun to add to it.

    I've actually heard stories about people doing this. I think in one the officer couldn't believe it and let the person go.

    While on your way to the Episode III premiere, you think everyone passing you on the highway is going to the movie as well, and is going to get in line ahead of you.

    The air conditioning in the office at which you work is constantly on hyperdrive, so you refer to your reception desk as Echo Base.

    When engaged in conversation with a non-SW addict you accidently refer to your offspring as your young padawan and then, as you continue with your story, wonder why the other person is looking very strangly at you...

    When any cylindrical object under a foot has mass potential as the base of a lightsaber...(This one was inspired by above said young padawan and, for example, a broken jumprope handle).

    Your eyes fill with tears of overwhelming joy and your heart nearly bursts with pride when your 3 year old says, "Daddy, I want to watch Star Wars again!" and then asks for his very own "lightsaver" the next time you walk through Toys R Us.

    I have to set this one up by saying that I play a knight (English, not Jedi) at the Northwest Renaissance Festival. I play the "Good" Knight, so at least once during the day I will wince slightly and tell His Majesty, King Henry, that I sense an evil force approaching, as my counter, the "Bad" Knight approaches.

    Also, during the Festival's Knightly Games swordfighting, a "Force Push" somehow manages to find its way into the fight choreography.....



    Hello, my name is Alex and I am a geek.....

    "Hollywood moviestar? No thanks. I'd rather be in a fan film."
    Yeah, fan films always seem more personal to me.
    That and it's a great way to express your inner:-B
