You know you're obsessed with KotOR when...

-  You type [Awareness] and/or [Force Persuade] before your reply on MSN or AIM.

-  You expect your computer to ask you for computer spikes.

-  When there's a fire drill at school, you tell everyone: "It's okay! Trask will come in and help us!", then wonder why you're attracting funny looks.

-  When one of your friends is running madly and all of your other friends are screaming "RUN, FORREST, RUN!", you have the overwhelming urge to scream out "RUN, HENDAR, RUN!"

-  When you go up to someone you remind yourself to save so you can reload incase you use the wrong dialogue option... and then you remember that you're not playing the game.

-  When you play games in which you can make your own character, you name them Revan, Carth, Bastila etc.

-  You refer to your phone as a 'comlink'.

-  You use words like ‘frack’, ‘schutta’ and ‘nerf-herder’ in everyday conversation.

-  You fit your bin with wheels and call it T3-M4

-  You refer to your closet/chest of drawers/box as ‘footlocker’.

-  At tollbooths/drive-thru's/caravan parks etc., you wave your hand and say "I do not need to pay the docking fee."

-  When people come up to talk to you, you say ‘Yes? What’s on your mind?’, ‘Something up?’ or other such replies.

-  You ask people to play Pazaak with you and expect them to know what you’re talking about.

-  You’re with your friends and wondering why you can’t switch party members.

-  You associate songs with KotOR characters/couples/events.

-  You leave your house and wait for a party selection screen to come up.

-  You daydream about characters from the game while your friends are obsessed with real, live people.

-  You’ve asked someone if they’ve been chewing spice before.

-  You hit people or turn your computer on and wait for the XP to show up.

-  You’re mean to someone in conversation and expect the ‘Dark Side Points Gained’ thing to come up.

-  You’re nice to someone in conversation and expect the ‘Light Side Points Gained’ thing to come up.

-  Ditto Inflence.

-  When people say ‘ this’ll only take a second’, you wait for the fade-to-black.

-  You're about to kiss someone and expect the screen to go black.

-  You go up to your bed to go to sleep and wait for an option that says [Rest.]

-  You check your house and/or car for secret smuggling compartments.

-  You refer to your teaches as ‘Master’. Eg., ‘Master Jones’, ‘Master Fisher’ etc. Yes, even for the female teachers.

-  When you pick up an object or put on some clothes, you are ‘equipping’ it.

-  You walk up to a closed, unlocked door and expect it to open without you touching it.

-  You don’t watch videos or DVD’s, you watch ‘holovids’.

-  You refer to monkeys as Tach, dogs as Kath Hounds, Koalas as Ewoks, and frogs etc. as Gizka.

-  You classify people as either Scoundrels, Scouts, or Soldiers; or Consulars, Guardians or Sentinels etc.

-  You come to school with your hair done up like one of the characters and expect people to know which character you based your hairdo upon.

- When you fall asleep somewhere you've never been, you expect to have a vision of it.

- You call pubs/bars/clubs/etc Cantinas

[Awareness] This is an excellent piece of writing.

Statement: I thoroughly enjoyed reading it.

Query: Will there ever be a sequel list?

Exclamation: I was laughing so hard while reading this!

I admit, I had the "DS points" one a few times right after I've snapped at sb. LOL. And the "party members" too. And I did joke that my buddy's PC obviously needs a few spikes when he misplaced the power cable :D So yeah, not all of this and maybe not in typical ways, but I did have a time when I was KotOR-crazy ;)

I know how u feel on that part; I nearly become shocked when nobody knows who Carth Onasi is, or if my hairstyle came from Bastila; but then I remember 'The Jedi Code' and remember that KotOR is a hardly a famous game anymore :cry:
