Flat-Black's become your favourite colour.

Your home-made website devoted to your agency is listed in more than 3 search engines.

Even your mother calls you by your detective name.

You're thinking of starting a charity called "Sleuther's Anonymous".

Somewhere on your body is a tattoo of your favorite faction

Your resume contains the words "solving internet-based crimes". But instead of being in the "Hobbies and Interests" section, it’s in "Career History".

When you order out for pizza and the delivery man shows up, you ask him if he knows anything about the case

Everyone feel free to add your own! :-)

You know you're a band geek when you:
+Finger your parts at random moments
+You start to think reeds taste awesome
+You get out of Jazz Band and the only sould you can make for a full five minutes is humming the songs.
+You know everyone in band, and in most people in the other grades.
+You can tell right away when anyone makes a mistake.
+You don't need to be looking at your BD to know he's pulling the 'Stop playing' sign.
+You're Band Mates become your family.
+You get assulted in the ear and start bleeding, but instead of blaming the person you have a severe talking-to with the Tenor Sax.
+You know all the instruments names.
+You acctualy feel at home in your Band room, or in your hideous uniform.
+You can tell people apart even in their full unif.
+You can start playing or humming a random song and everyone joins in.
Wait! Wrong thing! Sorry....

Sleuth About Town

hehe... another sign of playing sleuth too much...

Particularly focused on message boards

Can find old posts on message boards

You know what topic related posts would fit in with other posts (know the other post histories that are related)

and last but not least (for this post anyway)

LOVE walking around with bright signs written in SHARPIES and in CAPS for all to see your message. (*giggles* who knew...)

Also Ctown in your job application you write down which agencies you were working for, for how long and in which rank.

When you are looking through your casefile thinking things like:

If she was married to him, why did she take that ugly guy for a lover?
What a waste, pretty girl like that a cocaine dealer.

And, my favorite,
Awww, I don't want to go to Delhi, I just got back from Shanghai.

when you've checked the message boards 5 times and wonder why no-one has replied to your post, then you realise that it's only been 2 hours since you posted it...

How about when you google your Director (using his detective's name) to make sure he's on the up and up.

Yes I did it. And according to what I found he is the Director or our Agency.

When you know the twist stories off by heart and find yourself reciting them as soon as you see the picture pop up

When at work:

- You say "Store it in the case files and I will check it later."

- When someone mentions business travel to China and you exclaim, "I hate Shanghai!" and then have to backpedal and try to justify that you have never been there but have "heard" that it's a bit over-populated and really really hard to learn the language.

And in personal life:

- When it's your 2 year anniversary with your significant other but you can't go out for a romantic dinner because you are currently in the AVL match from hell, so the celebration will have to wait until the match is over. (True story. Very sad. But priorities, my friends! It's all about priorities. I may be looking for a little Sleuth match-making after this week.... Any takers?)
