You know you're

Chatterbox: Chirp at Cricket

You know you're

You know you're addicted to X when Y.

We do these over on MB, and they're fun.

For example:

You know you're addicted to Sweeney Todd when...

-you start trying to convince your employer at the cinema to start selling pies. (guilty)

-you start singing A Little Priest whenever you go into a kitchen. (guilty sometimes)

-you buy a set of straight razors on Ebay. (not guilty. yet...)

-your friends who have never seen Sweeney Todd have A Little Priest memorized, and frequently sing it along with you. (guilty)

-you can connect almost any subject back to Sweeney Todd in some way, no matter how obscure. (guilty) 

-you fantasize about opening a pie shop. (guilty sometimes)

-you fantasize about becoming a barber. (not guilty)

-you try to get your choir director to get the music for A Little Priest. (guilty)

It can be anything you want, from chatterbox to ice skating, whatever. And you don't have to be mostly guilty like me... :)

You know you LOVE desserts if:

There is a cake in the fridge and you go and check to make sure it's okay every couple minutes.

You know that you have two stomachs, one dessert stomach and one normal stomach.

You're full from dinner until someone says "who wants dessert?"

Chocolate sounds good every minute of the day.

You make brownies and they are gone in one day. (from you picking at them)

Ummmmmmmmmmm... that's all I can think of for now!!!

You know you're paranoid about secrecy if...

You write backwards in your already locked diary (not guilty)

You keep people from the whole upstairs while you're in your room wrapping Christmas presents (occasionally guilty)

You have a combination lock on your diary. (guilty in the past.)

Look at Mary Liz, going through old threads from *December* because she doesn't want to finish her summer math homework.

*picks random obsession....* Okay. Got one!

You know you've been listening to too much Little Mermaid when...

-You've timed your bike ride to your friend Kathy's house so that it takes exactly the same amount of time as singing "I Want the Good Times Back" under your breath. *always guilty*

-You can't see the word "wild" without going, "AH! Wild soirees!" *sometimes guilty*

-Whenever your little sister mopes around being self-pitying you begin singing Sweet Child. *sometimes guilty*

-You find falling asleep slightly difficult most nights unless you've muttered all the lyrics of at least one of Ursula or Flotsam and Jetsam's songs. *always guilty, oddly enough*

-You go into mild fits of ecstatsy upon seeing the email address "atinathemermaid" on a random email forward. *guilty the one time that happened*

That is all.
