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

-You get a Thunderchickens shirt for your birthday (needless to say, I screamed and jumped and freaked out when I opened the box with it inside XD)
-The shoes that you get have blue and yellow accents on them, and you immediately begin to think of teams whose colors those are.

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

In the morning you and your wife both, without consulting each other, put on your purple ThunderQuest FLL shirts. (She changed, so we wouldn't look like we were trying to match.)

You get a little sad when you go and find out your can of WD40 is empty. You had so many things to spray that day.

I envy you. I SO envy you.

When you have a text file of team t-shirts you NEED to get through T-shirt exchange... and realize you have to buy 8 or 9 team shirts in order to get it all done.

-You spend 3 hours on AIM with someone from another team, and about 2 1/2 of those three hours are spent talking about robotics
-You proceed to wake up the next morning, and all that pops into your head is "Robotics...why am I not doing something robotics-related right now...oh. right." (I'm pretty much brain-dead in the mornings :/ )

You arrive at Lynchburg College for Governor's school and the staff shirts this year are tye-dye, you occasionally yell, "GO WILDSTANG!"

Every time I see a tye dye shirt, I crank my neck and look to see if it's a Stang shirt. I think I even saw one in the hotel in Indiana that turned out not to be a Stang shirt. My count's at 15 non-Stang shirts.

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

...you are with your family and see a guy wearing an orange shirt and purple shorts, and one of you says "399", and the others chuckle.

...immediately afterwards, a reference is made to this thread...

...all three of you are thinking the same thing.

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

-You reference enough everyday objects to a team's color scheme that you are ordered to get a life outside robotics.
-At least half of your attempted conversations at a family gathering have some relation to robotics in some manner or another.

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

When while wearing your MAYHEM shirt at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida two people ask you if you are involved with FIRST.

Karibou- I am sooooo jealous....that is like the ultimate b-day gift. Could you imagine a FIRST yankee gift swap at the championships with just t-shirts. Although, I would rig it so i was number 1.
