You know you're a geek when..
(1) You can only do your Biology HW with Avatar: TLA playing in the background
(2) You have made both Butterbeer and Chocolate Frogs at home
(3) You're posting on Cosplay.com... at midnight.

Why that's silly, why would anyone do that?

To be fair, I haven't been spending the whole time on cosplay.com. I've spent the past couple hours watching Zero Punctuation reviews, which definitely relieves me of any geekiness I might have acquired by checking and posting on Cosplay.com well after my bedtime.

You know you're a geek when you start developing an irritating rash that eventually breaks out into various unmentionable contusions, in your genital area.

No, no, wait, that's herpes.

When people think your "oh so smart" when in reality you just spend too many hours on the internet looking up random info (Hetalia and TV Tropes does wonders to your academics I find personally...).

When you want at least 75% of the stuff in this lovely place.

-When you're moving and your manga collection alone takes up two huge boxes. Not even counting the rest of your sci-fi and fantasy books.
-And your cosplay and sewing take up more boxes than your normal belongings.
-When you talk in anime voices and dont even realize it anymore. Of course everyone else notices ^-^'''''

You know you're a geek when...

One of your fellow grad students says she is from an eastern European country close to Russia that you'd probably not recognize the name of, you say try me, and she says Belarus and is really shocked when you nod, fighting to contain your enthusiasm, and say that you indeed know where that is, the location on the map, its major source of economy, and the colors on its flag. Let's not admit you only know about Belarus because she is one of your favorite characters on Hetalia.

Your teatime involves toasted onigiri and a Megatokyo "Magic Coffee +1" mug.

Your parents dreaded moving houses because your room has four floor to ceiling bookcases stuffed with fantasy novels and collections of mythology.

You are asked to sculpt an animal out of wax for a first waxing lab project in school, you ask if it can be imaginary and the instructor reluctantly consents, and your dragon ends up winning an award as the best in the class. http://allisandepiper.deviantart.com/#/d386mb4

-when your boyfriend and all of his friends carry their PSPs with them at all times in side-holsters. It's always time for "Monster Hunter".
-when searching for your microphone turns up a pair of striped panties and a leek...

You know you're a geek when you:

-Feel like you have a small amount of manga even though your bookcase if full of it and surprises everyone how much you have.
-You and other bandmates watch Final Fantasy: Advent Children on the bus during an out of state trip and like it and everyone enjoy it.

OREGON TRAILLLLL! We had the very first version on our ancient computer we had when I was little and I played it over so many times xD And yes I read all the history facts EVERY TIME even though they never changed lol
Speaking of ancient games, did anyone else play Gizmos and Gadgets?

WHAT?! YOU JEST, SIR D: -must find and obsess-

You know you're a geek when...
-You can't focus on homework without an anime/drama soundtrack playing in the background
-You quote characters' catchphrases constantly, and your friends have stopped asking who you're quoting
-You're on cosplay.com instead of doing homework ^^;;

You know when you're a geek when:

-For your birthday you would love to go to a museum
-You buy figurines and other people why you don't play with them and keep them on display
-Have slippers that resemble characters or symbols or things from video games, shows, or animes
