So we have a coffee machine in the office and you have to rip open a foil sachet of pre-ground coffee and put it in a filter basket. There's no little cutter on this machine, so often when you tear open the foil packet, some ground spill out. I figured out this technique: you shuffle the grounds backwards and forwards a little before you tear the corner, so that the rip misses the grounds.

Long preamble to say that today as I was doing that, I had a visceral inner image of shuffling gel babies around in TFMurphy's secret room in the final stages of Flood Warning.

Then they all died at once - poof! :snorkle

I need to take a break, clearly.

I'm a graphic designer at a sign shop, so a lot of the time I think of colors in terms of RGB values, that is, Red-Green-Blue, but lately I've been thinking in terms of the MGT color space, that is, Mud-Gel-Tar.

Also, I have a copy of Godel, Escher, Bach: An Eternal Golden Braid sitting in my bathroom. Anyone who has seen the book knows it has a great big GEB, EBG on the front which I often think of as Gunthro (and the) Epic Blunder: An Exterminator Gunthro Budkin.

You hunt crows with spears pickaxes and swords and expect a single crow to flee but a flock to attack.

Bump because I thought of more.

...When you read books or watch movies and compare them to DROD.

For example, when you read or watch Divergent, you compare the faction Erudite to the Rooted Empire.

Another one:

After finishing TSS, you CRY. Not just itty bitty tears, but you SOB cry, because you know you won't be seeing Beethro any more after TSS, and the very idea of that makes you dismal.

You look at real world objects and they remind you of similar-looking DROD elements (for instance, the pull switch on my bedside lamp bears a resemblance to a Gentryii).

Well. Having played through every official hold, and every hold in the starter pack, for a total of 36 holds and 3600 scored rooms, all in the time since Second Sky was released (about a month and a week), I think I can say with some confidence that yes, I've been playing too much DROD and I could use a break.

(For the record, I had played through a few of these holds before registering for the forum; I didn't import progress from earlier versions, though, because I wanted to replay things. And I really camped out on the Hints and Solutions board for some of the tougher ones. I've grabbed about ten demos each for Perfection, Beethro's Teacher, and Complex Complex, so I think it's fair to say those were the ones that stumped me the most; personally I'd call Complex Complex the toughest one I've beaten, it felt like I needed to check hints for almost every room.)

You convert ogg files of DROD music to mp3s so you can put them on your iPod (I've actually done this with the Webfoot and AE music files).

...you expect somebody in a blue robe to duplicate itself when near a ledge.
...you worry that spikes and flames will pop out of sewer grates.
...you try to hold a silver fork near an emerald crystal, expecting to control time.
...you avoid stone sculptures of snakes, because you think they will move towards you.
...you try to push insects into flames, blades, water, or off edges of your sink with a stick when you don't have a sword.
...you think that stepping on ice will cause it to melt.
...you are afraid of fluff because you think puffs will pop out and poison you.
...you try to turn off crystal-shaped lamps, because if you don't the room will reset.
...you try to push red barrels, because you think they will explode if somebody hits them.
...you look at an hourglass on the ground, and expect to travel back or forward in time.
...you look at roses with an expression of fear, expecting them to grow fangs and slide toward you.
...you refuse to use bows, but instead just shoot arrows by hand.
...you think a ray gun is the most powerful gun, and that the blast will drill through cracked walls and living organisms alike.

Looking forward to Syntax and spitemaster posting here on the exact right date this year.

Yes, OCD behavior does come with the territory.

... download JtRH even with TSS out for the sole purpose of listen to Brood (one of the Foundation Puzzle themes), and if you think Brood would have been a better way to end JtRH than the JtRH Finale theme.

... (I know I said "Quote 39th Slayer" last year, but this one's kind of different) quote not 39th Slayer, but the TCB Slayer Apprentices when you frag people in shooter games. I know sometimes I say stuff like "Yes... lie down and stop breathing for me" or "Did you not see... this outcome?" when I frag people.

...When you go back to TCB or JtRH, TSS has influenced you so much you are stunned by the stark contrast in aesthetics, namely the background and Foundation Style.
