You Know You're A Geek When;

-Your entire year is made good (despite all the bad things) because you know that you'll be sitting beside a Basoon twice a week in band for the rest of the semester.

You haven't finished reading the most recent Star Wars book because you've been too busy planning a new roleplaying campaign and finishing your cosplay.

You go to the Harry Potter Exhibit when it's in town; get sorted by the sorting hat, fangasm over being able to see everything, inspect the robes/clothing to see how it was done, point out all the variances from the books that pop up, fangasm some more, and finally head home calling it a day well spent.
Oh man. I didn't even like the Harry Potter movies as much, I STILL fangasmed over the exhibit. I'm really glad my girlfriend made me go, haha. (I didn't get sorted, though, because they just asked you what your favorite house was and then pressed that button on the hat XD' I already know I'm a Ravenclaw. Represent.)

YKYAGW:

-You constantly have to make stupid inside jokes regarding video games or YouTube videos about video games ("But if you do ____ it'll open your Space Inventory," for example) in any moderately appropriate scenario. Bonus points, of course, if no one saw it coming and it still fits perfectly.
-Sometimes before you do something, you feel compelled to roll a D20 to see if you'll do well or not. (Naturally, if it's an attack, you roll the appropriate dice afterwards for damage.)
-You make geeky foods. I haven't made sea salt ice cream, but I'm planning on butterbeer soon, and I've made a Katamari Damaci cake. It had the King of all Cosmos on it and a rainbow. It was delicious.
-You find yourself getting so excited about something you've talked to someone about it for a good half an hour before you've realized how little they probably care. Like how cool it is that my new sewing machine has settings for buttonholes (please note I'm used to working on a 60-year-old machine, so this is awesome to me), or how the combat system works in this newest video game you're playing.

Let's just try one more...

-you spend countless hours and a ridiculous amount of money replicating the clothing, hair, and general look of fictional characters in order to spend money to go to a building with a bunch of other people dressed up that ask for your picture? Maybe? Just maybe? No?

Wow I could go on for ages. It's late. Sorry for the wall of text XD I got carried away

You know when you're a geek when:

-You discover TV Tropes
-You have TV Tropes will improve your life
-Then have TV Tropes will RUIN your life
-When you forget about going to TV Tropes often you will go onto it when you finish reading my post because you remembered about it again and you'll going through the cycle of improving and ruining your life through TV Tropes all over again.


Don't lie, you know this to be true!

...manga and cosplay items are the only things you think of when money finds its way into your life.

...your older friends come to you to make them plushies.

....you stayed up til one so you could watch the new bigfoot documentary on history channel.

...you own your own boxed set of alien documentarys.

YKYAGW:

-You subtly use anime/manga/movie/video game references in school assignments / debates, and the teacher accepts them as plausible.

-You crack internet jokes in class and the ENTIRE class understands it.

-You get to look at the official Tudors costumes and instead of being amazed at the detail, you automatically go see how the dress was constructed (then mom's boss told me not to touch it, lol).

-Your mom has an anime-related ringtone because she took your old phone, got used to the ringtone and now keeps using it even after getting a new one. And then tells you about how people react to her ringtone. ("Everyone in my office sings along with it when it rings!")

-Your mom compares you to "the ACTUAL Archbishops that stood on the street to invite people to go to their Church" (article here) and jokingly suggested that you should go in /your/ archbishop cosplay and help them out. When you read the article yourself, the first thing you notice is that the Archbishop clothing in Trinity Blood looks better than theirs.

-You look at your spending habits for the last year and realize that you've spent more money for hobbies than school.

... when your roommate mentions something about moving to a place where there is no high speed internet and you say "NNNNNNNNNUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU!!" because it means no more streaming anime and you might actually have to find a hobby that involves being outside

this came up last night over a bottle of sake /facepalm

You know your a geek when, for your best friend and fellow cosplayers birthday, you give her some "raw materials" for cosplay. My friend is having a 17th birthday party tomorrow and that's what Ive gotten her.

You.... are a bad person. I had almost forgotten about going to TV Tropes. ALMOST!


YKYAG:
When you can carry on conversations with other geeks that anybody who's not a geek wouldn't understand at all.

When you have a serious case of AO. (Acronym Overload)

When you understand all of the XKCD comics.... and if you don't, you immediately go to Google in search of knowledge that will make the comic funny.
