a little meme thingy

You Know You're Addicted to LiveJournal When…

If you can't access the site, you have a minor freak out – and a major case of hitting reload. Not exactly a freak out. But I do reload every few minutes. I do that with my email too though

You found yourself composing journal entries during dates, movies, even sex! Well, not SEX

When you're out, you suddenly think of a witty reply to a comment somebody made to you… several days ago.I don't think so, but I can see it happening

You actually call it LJ and not Livejournal. Check.Only in email as shorthand

You've downloaded some sort of LJ program which has only the purpose of making entries easier to write without going on the site manually.No. That's gay

You consider it a great offense if someone deletes you off their friend's list.Hasn't happened yet. But since I'm friends with my LJ-ers in real life, I probably would be offended

The first thing you do every day when you go online is check your friends journals – even before checking your email.Second thing.

You actually paid money for a few extra pictures with a full account when you could actually just alternate pics when you want to for your screen icons.I refuse to pay money for this, as fun as it is

When your friends ask what's new, you get mad at them because you already wrote it in your LJ and they didn't check it yet.I don't get MAD. I just calmly direct them to the entry :)

You have put more time into LJ than all your assignments for the semester.Well, I've put more time into it than my JOB. But were I in school, this would probably be true

You have more friends on LJ than in real life.Thankfully, no

You've met at laest 50% of your LJ friends.I've met all of them before LJ. So there.

You can't seem to call your friends by their real names – only LJ names will do.Only Dom Zook cos that's his name, yo

You've fallen in love with someone you met on LJ.I was already in love with someone on LJ. Does that count?

You have posted about a party or get together on your LJ… and random strangers showed up.Nope

You are guilty of traveling more than an hour to meet someone with LiveJournal. (Extra points for traveling five hours or more)Hello, freaks

You've written a protected entry about one of your LiveJournal friends. (Extra points if they eventually found out about it)There's points now?

You have written posts to notify people you're going to sleep.No, but some of my posts might put people to sleep. Oooh, burn

You talk about your LJ friends to your real life friends all the time… like they're a part of your group.They ARE part of the same group. How many points for that?

You've created a LJ community, and people actually post in it.no

You've been recognized in real live by a fellow LJ'er.This is getting a little freaky

You have friended someone because of their LiveJournal icon.Nooooooo. But ZeroShapiro's are always pretty cool.

You have “pity friends” on your list, who you would defriend if you could.Only the same people who are my pity friends in real life. KIDDING

You've pimped one of your friends on journal, trying to get people to friend him / her.I prefer the term “Hollywood Madam”

Instead of doing research, you post difficult questions on your LiveJournal.Replace “research” with “cost basis” and you've got yourself a deal

Your pets all have their own LiveJournals.Amazingly, my pets are illiterate. (Even though Bruce did have his own Friendster profile at one point.)

You know, right now, how many people have friended you (without peeking).I'm assuming it's all the people I have “friended”

You've stopped being friends with someone in real life because of something they've said on LJ.No but I think we all recall the great Napoleon Dynamite Scandall of 2004.

You're guilty of posting sexy or nude pictures to get more people to friend you.Only if you like beastiality

You have consoled yourself after a horrible day thinking “At least this will make a great LJ post”I usually post while I'm living the horrible day. See previous entry.

You're jealous of people who have more friends and / or comments than you.Don't be silly

You have written a really great, solid post – only to be disappointed by the lack of good comments.I'm maybe only disappointed by the lack of enthusiasm for Nip/Tuck or Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galazy rants. But I certainly dont' begrudge anyone

You're guilty of commenting excessively to get more traffic to your journal.Never thought of that

You've deleted a post a few minutes (or hours) after you've written it, because it seemed lame in retro spect.Clearly not, given how many lame posts I have up there. I have made updates or retractions though

You give shout outs to all your LJ friends on their birthdays.No. But that's a good idea

You have an additional, secret journal that hardly anyone knows about.No. But that is also a good idea. I can write down my sexy dreams involving hobbits.

You've broken up with someone – or ended a friendship – soley via LiveJournal.That's a whole new level of lame

You have gotten mean anonymous comments (bonus points for figuring out who it was via their IP)No, but I hope to some day

You've been reported (or reported someone) to LJ Abuse.Why does that make you addicted to LJ?

You've been featured on LJ Drama.No. But it was brought up during the Napoleon Dynamite Scandal of 2004

You actually get these jokes and pass them on to other friends who are LJ addicts.
