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

...you have a very long conversation about the name ThunderChickens and where it came from with your family.

Apparently my mother's from the area and has heard the phrase before. Google tells me it's a robotics team and a band, so that was little help.

It's also the name of the squadron in the Marines I think that started in Vietnam flying the Chinook. They wanted to call themselves the "Thunder Eagles" but there isn't a Vietnamese word for 'eagle.' They now fly the V-22 Osprey.

I think it's when, even though your own team's number has passed in the post count, you hope Caroline can catch her's.

Also, when you go to check what the post of your team's number was.

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

When you're overly excited that you DID post on your team number.

When you make a list of ideas to get your family to drive two hours out of their way on vacation... so that you can drop by IRI. (It's the plan, let's hope it works.)

When your little sister recognized the BAE Systems logo 3 years before she started to read! She still can't imagine a spring without a FLL competition, and can talk about FLL, GSR, FRC, JFLL, safety, c, c++, robolab, the RCX, the NXT and more without blinking an eye!!!

(no joke!!!)

Both of these are much bettter than getting to leave my team on my birthday

You're overdosed on FIRST when you're setting aside money to save for plane tickets to Minnesota and Atlanta 2010, so you can (hopefully) go see your old team compete.
