Re: You know you've overdosed on FIRST when...

...at school, you look down and you are wearing your team polo shirt, 6 buttons(2 your teams, 2 safety captain button, and 2 from other teams), your 1507 necklace, pants that you bought specifically for FIRST, shoes that have been to every FIRST competition that you have, Poof ball earrings, you are carrying your official FIRST sweatshirt, and your backpack has a Buzz button.
...you have pants that you bought specifically for FIRST competitions.
...your 8th grade BROTHER points out the "property buzz" commercial has Buzz in it.
...you steal your friends Hawaii FLL necklace because you didn't get one and REFUSE to give it back.

I'm guessing that was Devynn's because I still have mine...

...When your five-year-old brother begins associating team numbers with names.
...When your parents are looking at flights to Atlanta for a business conference, and you assume they're getting a headstart for next April.
...When you constantly complain about missing competition season and wear something every day that reminds you of FIRST.

...you just realized that you haven't updated your bulletin board since December 2005, because you were way too busy once January rolled around.

I don't even have a 2006 calendar!

When your mother wears her team shirt for casual day at her office.

When your younger siblings whine because they didn't get team shirts.

When your younger siblings whine because they didn't get team shirts.
When your response to the SAT essay question is a long write up about FIRST and Dean Kamen's inventions.

And when you want to annoy a team member...you start singing the FIRST song because you know it will drive them insane.

Re: You know you've overdosed on FIRST when...

...When you and a teammate are studying for a world history final and cannot concentrate for more than 10 seconds before FIRST butts in.
...When you're studying the chapter on the scientific revolution and you say Archi- and your friend, in reflex, says -medes.
...When the above occured and your team was not even in Archimedes.
...When you remember who Francis Bacon was because of a weird connection you made up to the team Exploding Bacon. (Bacon said ideas that are based on tradition alone should be discarded. Oink Oink Boom = 2 Oinks then Boom. Ideas that have been around for 2 long go boom!)
...When you're listening to a playlist of songs that remind you of FIRST while trying to study.
...When you start trying to make up words to random FIRST-related songs that will help you remember the material you're studying.
...When you start doing the Cha Cha Slide and Cotton Eye Joe in the middle of your living room.

...When this is your fifteenth post in this thread.

Re: You know you've overdosed on FIRST when...

-When the word "first" has ceased to mean anything numerical. Any time you see it you think someone must be talking about robotics.
-When you have a major paper/project due the next day but you get into a conversation with a member of another team and get distracted anyway.
-When you manage to convince your mother, father, step-father, grandfather, and grandmother to come to WPI because it's right after graduation.
-When aforementioned grandfather decides that you are his only grandchild because you are on robotics, are planning on being an electrical engineer, and are going to Syracuse University (Grandfather is an electrical engineer and SU football fan)
-When songs you have heard once at a robotics competition (that your team wasn't even playing at) still remind you of robotics even though you have heard the song a million times in other places.
-You went to four regionals this year. Two your team played in (BAE, Chesapeake) and two that they didn't (UTC, Boston)
-You had a countdown to kickoff for months... including spending Christmas wishing January would hurry up and get here.
-Your room is decorated in Leis from Bash, Medals, and stuff with smiles on it.
-A member of your team found the smiley store online and got your team a gift-certificate because the site made your BAE team pic the smiley picture of the week.
-When the aforementioned team member also found out that Walmart is trying to Trademark the smile and you sent her a long email about the evils of corporate America (except for companies that sponsor teams) and about how you use the smile more than Walmart anyways.
-When you become naturally attracted to items of clothing, decorations, etc. in your team color when you never owned anything in that color before.

I've just discovered that the spell check doesn't recognize Walmart as a word... that's okay, they are evil anyways.
