You know you've read too much EG when...

Postby Nova » Sat Oct 28, 2006 10:21 am

you know you've read too much EG when...

~you are trying to think of someone's last name and all you can think of is "Wiggin" or "Delphiki"

~when you have done several reports/papers/projects about OSC or EG

~When you are at school (SPOILER WARNING!) read about carlotta's death :cry:, are about to cry, and have to go over to your friend in the middle of class to hug her

~ when you manage to relate almost everything in your Priest's(sp) boring sermon to EG

~when you are bored in class you daydream about Battle School

~When you get a sudden urge to read EG but your copy is lent out to someone and the library doesn't have it so you have to go buy another copy (even if a week later your brother lends it out to someone again! :x )

When you can't watch sci-fi without bringing up the buggers

You honor Valentine on Valentine's Day (leaving everyone else confused)

You expect to see genius activity out of any third child in a family. :roll:

You consider traveling 4000 miles to thank your friend's English teacher for making her read EG.

You get violently angry when someone refuses to read EG.
I used to hate gravity because it would not let me fly. Now I realize it is gravity that lets me stand.

Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.

- When you decide to learn enough about computer code that you can make your own Dragon graphic with a secret message inside.

- When you absolutly insist on a third child, which you'll name either Andrew or Valentine (assuming you havent already named another child Valentine)

Oh and I dont get violently angry when someone wont read EG, I just get very frustrated and keep bugging them.

you know you've read too much EG when you're reading a post about Peter's motivations, and you can quote an entire paragraph from memory verbatim, including punctuation, that references that topic, and must only dig up your copy of the book to check the page number.

oh my.
you snooze, you lose
well I have snozzed and lost
I'm pushing through
I'll disregard the cost
I hear the bells
so fascinating and
I'll slug it out
I'm sick of waiting
and I can
hear the bells are
ringing joyful and triumphant

You know you've read too much Ender's Game when you not only began writing your own Ender's Game screenplay, but you've critiqued and adapted another written by a different person.

when you call your computer screen jane and hope for a reply.

-when you play buggers and astronauts

-when you don't want people knowing where you really live, you put hometown: Greensboro, North Carolina on your profile.

-when your name is christine and tell everyone that the dedication in Enchantment is for you but the editors accidently spelled your name wrong.

-call everyone named Andrew, Ender.

-when someone under the influence of hallucinogens says "I'm wiggin" you immediately ask: "Ender?"

When every time you play a video game that has multiple races or species (like the orcs, humans, elves, and undead in Warcraft) and you constantly think about the similarities between one of the races and the formics and wish they would make a EG realtime strategy game.

-When your copy of Ender's Game has seen better days because:
a) You've read it too much.
b) You've let people borrow it and they've read it.

(Both of the cases are true with me.)

So, I was riding home on the train from Baltimore to NJ last Friday. My computer was on, and I was reading "Darwin's Radio" (great book).

This guy sits across from me at the table in the "cafe car", also reading a book. We trade quick book reviews. I mention I probably read too much science fiction.

He innocently asks, "Have you ever read a book called 'Ender's Game'?"

Poor bastard. He'll never talk to strangers again.

when you almost write "philtotically entwined" instead of "spiritually connected" in a prayer that you have to write for school.

When someone wants to borrow your copy of EG so you write them a note, threatening to kill their firstborn child if they don't return it in 3 weeks.

When you attempt to create zero-gravity battles.
When in that attempt, you try and picture- and draw- a Battle Room (I did that- it's basically a large cube, who's height/width/length is longer than the other parameters)

When you write stuff you think are smart in children's boards and/or newspaper sites, naming yourself Locke/Demosthenes/Lincoln/Grant.

When you read each of the books more than 60 times- THEN you've read EG too much. WAY, WAY too much.
