View Full Version : Has your fandom ever gotten the better of you?

Today I was watching a football(soccer) match on the TV.

One of the players had a chance to put his buddy clear through on goal but went for a hopeless shot himself instead.

Which missed.

Rather than let off the usual torrent of swearing and abuse I instinctively shouted: "Ah, you bloody wool-headed sheepherder!"

Does this king of thing happen to anyone else? Does your fandom ever accidentally come out?

I had a dream one night that I could Travel and when I woke up and realized it was a dream, I got depressed.

Other than that, I usually catch myself before the geek in me spills out. Except for the occasional, "Oh, bloody Light."

I tend to use 'mother's milk in a cup' on occasion...

I use bloody alot although that might be British ancestry. It's really funny when Frenzy & DT get going at the WoT cursing though.

I once stayed up past 75-80 hours - I wasn't counting real well at the time - and was reading Lord of Chaos for whatever crazy reason I had at the time - I wasn't reasoning real well, either. About the part in the trunk with the beatings of Rand and such, I was, ah, crouching under the table in a dimmly lit dining room having claustraphobia attacks and curled into a ball.

Notably, I do not have claustraphobia.

Insomnia is fun!

...

So the answer to your question is no. My fandom has never gotten the better of me.

Your insomnia, on the other hand, has?

Oh gods yes.

Anytime it gets me over fifty hours awake, I start getting really interesting stories to tell people.

At least half of those stories have to be alibis.

Didn't i start WoT swearing during the team trivia contest? i vaguely remember that. Hard to be sure, though, i was pretty hung over. Head-banging to the timer music didn't help much.

damn that was a fun weekend.

No, but I've been looking for socially acceptable places to shout, "Bloody Buttered Onions!"

Fairy used to say "for the love of pete" I told her it made me jealous ... now she says "for the love of the light."

Hopper's got it covered. Really, you reminded me of Mat the morning after his drinking with Birgitte in Ebou Dar. Heh.

Nope. Birgitte kept the scotch to a minimum. lol... I've been hungover exactly once and it was a Sunday morning that I had to work... Good times... NOT.

I'm working pretty hard to keep it that way.

Don't worry, the next hurricane and she'll be 3 sheets to the wind again.

I have never used sayings in WoT IRL. Can't think of any thing that else that I might have done that would show my fandom. I keep WoT pretty much separated from daily life I guess. Except these daily ventures into TL of course :)

I tried to use the "oneness" while playing a sport once... It didn't work, and prompted someone to ask why I was making odd faces :D
