You know you spend too much time on the Bransforums when...

Post by dios4vida » June 3rd, 2011, 2:20 pm

...you dream about reading and posting on them.

I'm serious. The other night I dreamt about our little orange internet haven. I woke up wondering if I need to take a break from the Bransforums. Then I laughed and checked to see what was new.

...you talk about people on the Bransforums with people you are eating sushi with in real life without pausing to explain who these people are because everyone knows Margo and Mira and Polymath, right?

When part of even my busiest days, is to hit f5 every time I pass the keyboard, because I never logged off after morning coffee.

It either emails the trojan horse I uploaded to your hard drive to everyone on your contact list, or refreshes the page - I forget which.

I thought the correct answer was: there's no such thing as "too much time" on the Bransforums.

HAHA I do both of those things!

Or, in the vein of Margo, you start to seriously consider that redecorating your house in orange is an awesome idea.
