This thread will either die a shameful early death or it will die of spam...

You know you play UO too much when:

You write a 20 page book to see if they really will make them permanent on NPC bookshelves all over your shard. (I dunno yet, I'll let you all know if it happens)

You refer to yourself as a Legendary (insert professional title here)

Your shard goes down and you blame it on scripters for overloading the economy system

You attempt to heal your real pets with nothing more than a cut up old bed sheet

Your keep a collection of bloody bandages when you are done

You are surprised when your pet doesn't decay in 10 mins...

That should be enough to cause hate mail :shocked:

You run around screaming Vas Ort Flam and Corp Por yet nobody seems to be keeling over except in laughter.

Your strangle spell only works when you lay your hands upon their neck.

You wish daily that recall and gate travel worked in the real world.

You check your UO Aquarium every day religiously, worry if you miss a day or two, and mourn the loss of one of your precious special color Corals....

What's worse is going to bed after playing UO and spend the night dreaming you're playing UO, acquiring major arty after major arty, and a castle to put them all in, and then waking up. :'(

You hit the snooze button and decide it will be ok to sleep in another 2 hours and recall to work later.....then an hour later you wake up a realize your an idiot and rush to work.

You tell your 2 pets "All Follow Me" and when they don't listen you repeat it 5 more times until they walk away and you figure they have gone wild....
There are no stupid questions......only stupid people!

I've lost count of all my UO dreams.

But what's even worse (and sad because it actually happened), I woke up for school one morning and while half asleep had the character selection screen in mind and was wondering what character I'd log on to go to school with.

Sigh.
Still we loom in the mists as the ages roll away,
And we say of our folk, "they are here!"
That they built us and they died and you'll not be knowing why,
Save we stand on the bare plains of Wiltshire.

You spend ten minutes in your garden shed looking for that ornate axe to show it off. :)

In the early days, I've been known to pull my car off the road next to a field of flowers, in order to pick up reagents......

And recently dreamed (since i can't find it anywhere on stratics) that UO had transported a whole guild (changing their clothing and pets to pink first) between shards in an effort to allow cross-shard wars for pvpers..... I did dream this, didn't i? it is so clear in my mind.......

You have friends that when met in real life call you by your screen name.

You have ever wondered what professions you are in real life.

You don't know what the term real life is.

Not only that, but when they call your real name, they have to repeat it a few times before you realize they are talking to you.

There is a group of 4 guys in my guild, that go to school together. They call eachother by their screen names at school, and everywhere else outside of UO. I laugh at that everytime I hear them talking on vent and stuff.
