-You carry a deck of Yu-Gi-Oh cards with you (mine is always in my bag).
-You start using anime/manga/game/movie/etc themed "swear words" (my favourite is Shinra).
-You give your costumes nicknames (I call my Euphie the wedding dress).
-You are getting good at predicting twists in storyline (I've had to actually stop myself from doing this as I keep ruining the story for myself).
-Your friends and family can give basic information for and sometimes quote from the various fandoms that you like, not because they have watched or like it but because you talk about them so much (for me, especially the poem "Loveless" from FFVII: Crisis Core I quote it a lot).

You know you're a geek when you have a ocarina and play video game music on it and when you know the lyrics to the ballad of the goddess in both hylian and english

When you go see Silent Hill: Revelations with your boyfriend, and you get so excited you proceed to whisper about them and point them out, annoying him beyond belief because he doesn't give a crap about Silent Hill. Then educate him about the music composer and Mary Elizabeth McGlynn at the credits.

I also have a little box of dice and my Magic the Gathering deck in my purse 90% of the time.

...When you carry a small screwdriver with you at all times. Just in case you need to open up a computer case and replace the hard drive. I don't know.
...When you tell your brother to cheat at prom. By bringing Mario Kart and a DS, of course.
...When you -insert Homestuck reference here-.
...When one of your primary reasons for working out is to look better in crossplay.
...When you figure since you're going into the great unknown (anywhere beyond the end of the driveway that requires you to get out of the car) with a friend, you might as well wear a 'camouflage' cosplay.

*You spend 2 hours on Skype with a friend talking about cosplaying certain characters for an upcoming con.
*You spend a good chunck of your day on tumblr, looking up anime/manga things.
*Your entire office thinks that you are a ninja because you have one kakashi figurine at your desk..

I did this too to my friends, when I saw Travis at the end I flipped. He is my favorite character from the series. I thought it couldn't get better but then they just had to show the prison bus from Downpour. I chuckled thinking, "bye bye Murphy"

You know you are a geek when you start capitalizing the word "silent" because you are used to saying, "Silent Hill". When you plan to get the Halo of the Sun tattooed on your chest and you have many theories on the lore of the order and you try to explain to your friends almost as if you are trying to convert them.

When you and your friend start singing "Bad Apple" or another Touhou tune for no reason, and sometimes start doing the dance.

You know you're a geek when you automatically think "Harry Potter" when you see "HP."

You also know you're a geek when whenever you're around a lot of people you automatically start analyzing them and seeing who they would be fit to cosplay.

You can assign a character to a number (DADA teachers, Doctors, Star Trek officers, etc).

Our poor volunteer coordinator (who happens to be the 5th person at the job in 3 years) wasn't getting half the references we were throwing at her.
