    when your computer, switches itself on,
    goes straight to this site, and nothing else, and your eyes are permantly wide open with little computer screens flashing in them with JE’s name all over the screens.
    are we sad people, or just dedicated?

    -Your kids (ages 6 & 3) know the correct spelling of J.E.’s name.
    and they don’t add an “s” to the end of Edward.
    -Your 6 year old asks you to take him to the school’s book fair but, reminds you that they probably don’t have any books by John Edward.

    -You fully expect your husbands head to fall off from shaking it so much in disapproval.
    -You’re waiting for his eyes to stick like that….next time he rolls them at you.
    -your kids know exactly where to find you if they need something.

    —-everybody’s wondering why you’re laughing so hard that
    you fall out of your chair. ouch!

    “why is Mommy in the floor Daddy?”
    Daddy shakes his head, rolls his eyes and walks away.

    :user: :rolleyes: :laff: :laff:

    ….. when you get up in the middle of the night to go to the restroom ,and you check out the board just to see what is going on before you go back to bed!.

    GUILTY, but the dogs wanted to go out. and you know how long that can take…

    whe* the *ottom row of letters o* your key*oard *lows out!

    GUILTY, but it was the cola that spilled not the amount of time spent here that made the keyboard die…

    When your screen saver becomes JE’s picture.

    GUILTY GUILTY. he is gone now though. Brought the computer in for HELP and he never returned. Now that you bring that up ,maybe… I should find that link again…..

    When you get to the checkout at the grocery store and try to determine which line is shortest. After surveying the scene, you take a deep breath, rub your hands together and say,

    “I’m coming over here.”

    NOT GUILTY

    Now that is the best, #1 reason. Will be guilty soon though. Can’t wait to try it.
    Great thread Bob. Much needed diversion, but you knew that.

    What you have to say to your mother when your youngest son tells her on the phone, “No, you can’t talk to mom..she’s doing something called lurking on a guy named John…”…………..Boy, that took a lot of explaining on my part. :p It’s funny that even at 45 yrs. old when your mom says, “What the hell were you doing?”, the hair on the back of your neck stands up and you start stuttering :shrug: Thanks for a great topic…really funny posts :D

    This may come from a little different angle as my husband came up with this one, since he is my official taper when I can’t be home for a show. He’s not a total skeptic, but not quite as avid a fan as I am.

    scroll down…to make sure that RSLancastr is on the board. You then relax and start reading.

    My presence is “relaxing”? I’ll have to think on that for a while…

    Here’s another:[blockquote]You know you’re spending too much time on the board when you’re up at midnight singing Beatles songs in the chat room.[blockquote]“Naaaaaa naaa naaa na-na-na-naaaa, na-na-na-naaaa, hey (TX)Juuude!”[/blockquote][/blockquote]-Bob

    One of the top 10 ways you know you spend too much time on the board…

    …You’ve gone back to reread the same thread so many times, you’ve got the whole darn thing memorized!!!!!!LOLOLOL. (Hmm, wonder why I had so much trouble doing this in school.)

    Thanks, Bob, for a great thread starter.

    How about when you husband calls and says he is on his way home you have to pay (bribe) your daughter $30 to help you run around and frantically clean up to make it look like you did something that day.

    You know you’re spending too much time on this board:

    When you notice how many new registered users there are with each visit, and cheer as the numbers go up. (especially since it looks like the numbers here will top those of a *skeptic* (more like CYNIC) (choke, cough, clear throat) site soon.

    and When you can anticipate other regular contributors responses to certain questions or threads before they write them, and when you read them you say “I knew they’d say that!”

    Hey Bob, have you bought any JE books yet?

    Ohmygosh, what will happen when A) your daughter gets a JE addiction also, or B) you have to get a second job to pay what she has raised the “fee” to? :D I used to love “conspiring” with my kids….until they became old enough to turn the tables …”Gee, you know ma, if I was allowed out I’d be so tired when I came home I would forget to tell dad…” :lwink: Oh well, some people bond with deep, emotional conversations, and others bond while perpetrating a fraud on a family member:thumbsup: Not the scene in a Norman Rockwell painting, but the fun of the cover up is something your daughter will always remember….I know that first hand.
