    Reading General chat on Xegony today I got reminded of all those lines about "You know you have played too much Everquest when........"

    You arrive late at work and the first thing you do is con your boss to see if you have aggro.

    At work you ask your friends if they want to group for lunch.

    When you leave your desk you put an AFK sign on it.

    You take out the garbage to increase wife faction.

    When the elevator dings and you think you leveled.

    When if you wan to go camping and you ask which named camp it is.

    When you see a line of execs walking down the hall at work and you think, "Train!"

    Back when Lord of the Rings movie came out I saw the trailer. It's the part where they're in Moria and one of them alerts the goblins. When the goblins bust down the door and rush in, I literally almost yelled "TRAIN!"

    Dang Flatchy, I haven't seen you around since the warrior board poofed. My name on that board was Mendler. Hope you're doing well!

    When you remember you didn't do any of the things on the "Honey Do List" and you get cross agro from the kids pull of your wife and you feign death. Wife named looks down and instead of forgetting how pissed she is at you just says, "idiot" and walks away. Successful Feign Death, you raise your Feign Death skill (2)!!

    the first Real time it hit me was after an all niter in college ( late 1999 ) playing EQ. and by all nighter I started about 9 AM the day before. the game told me i was out of food and drink and i realized i was hungry and went to the dinning hall.. To this day i sware i saw an orc there.


    now for fun:
    When I am trying to figure out how many Muffins I need to give my wife to be ally again.
    When I want to ask the new guy at work who's alt they are.
    when the first words you want to use to disribe yourself to a date or new group of people is your level and class.

    I've done this many times. I have managed to catch myself before I pressed enter, but I've started typing it many times.

    When EQ expansions were only store bought in boxes, walking through the mall to get to Electronic Boutique to buy your copies and hearing "camp check".
