Are you just trying to get out of looking like a BD addict or are you serious.

Oh... WW! I kept on wondering what "D-Day" had to do with it. I guess I need to start actually reading other people's posts.

Haha! Now I wish that would have been intention, but I was just thinking of an occupation and it happened to be the first that came to my mind for some reason.

Yet Another Sign of Addiction...

When you are shopping in the car aisle of the store and you see steering wheel covers, floor mats, and seat covers among other things that have penguins on them and you immediately think, Lommy would love those!

Or, when you are writing "Soft Soap- white" on a shopping list and instead you write "Soft Soap- wight" ...

In Ecology lecture class, we were at one point discussing perception of the environment and our limitations in perceiving it. I was rather sleepy, not having slept a blink the night before, but I was trying my best to stay awake because it was an interesting class. I snapped fully awake when my professor wrote GW on the board. Alas, he wasn't referring to my fiance, but to global warming.

Another thing, I mistakenly misread 'onewhitetea' as onewhitetree.

Top ten signs you're addicted to DW

When listening to music you mishear "Why won't anybody try me" as "Why won't anybody scry me"...

Addicted to DW? No, never, not me....

On another board I saw someone mention DW (they were being lazy and abbreviating Doctor Who). "Dueling Wizards? Where? WHERE????" Then I facepalmed. (This is especially sad as I'm also obsessed with Doctor Who, hence I should have caught on right away)

When I went to Mt. Ranier today, I got this dessert that is called a Raspberry Mt. Ranier. It was a pink pyramid. I thought "If I put this picture on the 'Downs, there would be an article in the Downer soon enough about it.

My Plant Physiology prof used 'CW' to abbreviate cell wall, and I started wondering if there's a role called Crazy Wizard.

But there is! You were the Wizard of Insanity, remember? And Nilp was twice the Wizard of Apathy.

Right, Eowyn.

Oh, I also realised it's weird to write CBC instead of CbC, and have those letters mean 'complete blood count' instead of...something else entirely.

I went with my friends yesterday to the car superstore, and when I was asked what cars I'd like to check out I said: "I hear those Volo's are pretty good."

Haha, no, none of those. But you are giving me a good laugh. It just is Volo, VOLO, volo, ah, I don't know. It sounds so stupid.. Pronounce it as you think it sounds best, I won't mind.

edit: So, I just sneakily add some content here not to just be chatting around. Hmm, fish. - No I don't like fish, even the smell is terrible, I can't stand it- *cough*

I went to check in my Microsoft Sam voice thingie how to pronounce Volo or to write the pronounced Volo and now, at two AM, what do I end up doing? Oh, of course. Of course! I try the names of you Downers on poor Sam. Hmm... I wonder how he'd survive some actual lines from the books. Hiihihii!

I always pronounced it 'Gertrude'...

Anyway...

You know your Downs habit is going a little far when you pick through your alphabetti spaghetti (I am so sophisticated) to make the word 'Barrow Downs' on your plate... (followed by TARDIS, Tolkien and Lord of the Rin (couldn't find a 'g')).

I feel like I'm 12 again...

Heh. It's okay, I thought it too. Then I saw TARDIS....



And as for me....feel free to point and laugh.


I was at band rehearsal last week and we were playing a Czech piece.

(Czech here having the meaning that it was composed in Wilbur, a small town by where I go to college which hosts "Czech Days" which is essentially an excuse for everyone in the area to....erm, I can't really say it on the board. Point is, as far as I'm concerned there's not much Czech about it....But I digress....)

Moving on....Czech piece, to refresh your memory. Well, it had been a long day and we were supposed to play one movement all legato and pretty like (don't ask) and I was spacing off looking over the music and all I saw was Czech and legat (the music wasn't copied very well) and I chuckled in the middle of rehearsal.

I remembered it during rehearsal tonight and had a total giggle fit because I realized that it was perfect fodder for this thread.


(Also, I was playing some game where you had to escape from the Land of Nog....erm, I mean Nod. Enough said)

You know you're addicted to the Barrow-Downs when you are trying to explain the Downer to your grandparents and you are trying to explain it in a way that will not make it sound like a lie. (Don't kill me)

Or when the only newspaper you read is the Downer, and you proudly proclaim that fact to everyone!

Or when you have almost (unintentionally) have gotten your grandma to come on the Barrow-Downs..

Well, the Downer has not lost any credibility because of me anyway. And besides, it's not a lie... it's just the news.

You (at least think) you are addicted to the Barrow-Downs when you join the Barrow-Downs group on Facebook because you cannot get enough. And if that wasn't enough, you make friends with your fellow BDers and talk to them!!


EDIT: Or when you are sitting in the bathroom and on the sink there is a pile of random stuffs, you have to look because you think you just saw Alien! And then you look and it turns out to be your deoderent ... and I thought I had a reason to be frightened!

When you are reading the ingredient list for some jelly beans and you read one of the ingredients off as Thinlomien... I found that it got me a very strange look.

I had to think of Esty when my grandparents were picking up their RV...
We were riding back to their house and I saw this billboard that just cracked me up... It said "Save the squirrels!" It was meant to be an ad for a car repair shop, but for any unsuspecting Barrow-Downer, it means a good laugh...

When I think about Rune when I see Crunchy Msli, but read Groucho Msli instead. To be honest I don't even have the slightiest idea who Groucho Marx was, but well...

If you can make such connections then your everyday life must be extremely downs-infested.

You (at least think) you are addicted to the Barrow-Downs when you join the Barrow-Downs group on Facebook because you cannot get enough. And if that wasn't enough, you make friends with your fellow BDers and talk to them!!


EDIT: Or when you are sitting in the bathroom and on the sink there is a pile of random stuffs, you have to look because you think you just saw Alien! And then you look and it turns out to be your deoderent ... and I thought I had a reason to be frightened!
To the last bit: Wow.


I was sort of ill the other day and decided to watch some kids movies to cheer me up. I decided on one about a trouble-causing little penguin. "I bet Lommie would get a kick out of this!"

Thank you.
You know you are obsessed with the Barrow-Downs when you have automatic updates that go directly to your e-mail and a whole folder in your e-mail dedicated to the Barrow-Downs...

This is actually in reverse, as something on the Downs reminded me of something outside.


The newest member on here is called "noble." The only thing I could think of was the Doctor's current companion.

Oh yes, that. I wonder who the next Doctor will be... or will they stick with David Tennant (I missed it today- must watch it on iPlayer). And just who is that woman he met on the Library
