You know you're playing too much apterous when...

Post by Matt Morrison » Tue Jul 13, 2010 11:22 pm

(inspired by a bit of aptochat this evening)

Graeme Cole: You know you're playing this game too much when, as I've just done, you only realise it's midnight when a new duel appears.
Hugh Binnie: you know you're playing too much when you appear on the most time played page
Innis Carson: Or when you're #1 on the list by a margin of 10 days
Adam Gillard: or when your name's Adam Gillard

I'll open with a classic trueism and hope that funnier ones follow.
You know you're playing too much when you anagram every fucking word you see in real life.

You know you're playing too much if you get excited when you see an obscure word "in the wild".

You know you're playing too much when you dream about apterous.

Come on, we've all been there. Last night I dreamed of a new 'infobox' for the front page, I remember it being really interesting and a Genuinely Good Idea but that's all I remember about it.

You're playing it on Lightweight Mode because you're logging in from a dodgy wifi spot in the town centre after having been evicted from your house for spending all your housing benefit on updating the subscriptions to your multiple accounts, and a tramp keeps suggesting five letter words that aren't even there.

1. You develop a fascination for blonde-haired, blue-eyed guys.
2. Your cell phone has the Bolero of Fire ring tone.
3. You try to persuade your blonde guy friend to add green to his wardrobe.
4. When feeling hopeless, you catch yourself pleading heavenward, "Din, Farore, Nyru, Goddesses of Hyrule, lend me your strength."
5. You take up archery as a hobby.
6. When observing different species of spiders at the zoo, you exclaim, "Hey! That one looks just like a skulltula."
7. The southwest wall of your bedroom is covered with every existing Zelda wallpaper and entitled "The Legend of Zelda: Shrine of Ages."
8. In History class, you find yourself searching a map for the land of Hyrule.
9. You have an uncontrollable urge to beat the crap out of everyone who badmouths the Legend of Zelda.
10. You notice how you and Princess Zelda (or Link) share distinct physical and psychological similarities.
11. At first, you are enraged at the creator, producer, and cast of the Lord of the Rings, claiming that they stole their ideas from the Legend of Zelda series. You later fall in love with Legolas because he bears an uncanny resemblance to Link.
12. You find yourself blushing and your heart rate quickening whenever you view a close-up photo of Link.
13. You carry a photo of Link in your wallet, claiming that he's your boyfriend and one and only true love.
14. You gaze longingly at the countryside, wondering if darkness will fall before you reach the end of the field.
15. You demand respect from your peers, claiming you were born with the Trifore of Wisdom.
16. You constantly wonder if Shigeru Miyamoto will ever let Link and Zelda publicly admit their feelings for one another.
17. You examine the creation of Hyrule over and over in your mind, wondering how on Earth can the three goddesses live among villagers as oracles.
18. You argue that Peter Pan and Robin Hood are Hero-of-Time wannabes.
19. You develop a two-page theorem on why Link turned into a pink bunny rabbit in the Dark World in his A Link to the Past adventure.
20. When you first hear the new Eclipse gum commercial jingle, you shout, "Hey, that's a rip-off of the Serenade of Water!"
21. When you have difficulty completing a temple and die eight times consecutively, you yell at the TV screen, throw down the controller, and storm angrily out of the room. You then return five minutes later, apologize to Link, and beg for his cooperation.
22. You lie awake at night trying to place the Legend of Zelda adventures into chronological order.
23. You identify the you are having withdrawal symptoms when at school, you constantly glance at the clock, counting down the hours standing between you and your video game play. When you can't take it any longer, you run out of the classroom mumbling, "Ganon has enslaved the nation. The world can't wait any longer."

I actually rather like this idea. I might have to call one of my children Patton (I'm sure he'd forgive me eventually) because it nicely anagrams to NOT BIPINNATE, which would be true (always a plus for name anagrams, right?) and have the added benefit of teaching him a potentially useful word. :)

...Or maybe Horatio, and encourage him to partake in amusing drunkennesses. So many possibilities; so little child-making time!

You know you're playing too much apterous when...

...you get up two hours earlier than you wanted to on a Saturday (at 8am this morning; true story) because you had horrible nightmares populated by people from C4C and apterous. Seriously, you know a dream isn't going to end well when it starts with Innis Carson asking your girlfriend for a lighter to spark up a Malboro Red whilst standing on a wall.

I think one of the symptoms is an inability to properly process information and attributing significance to data that is not really significant. For instance you might see two cars with an E and a 6 in their registration and think it's the government monitoring you. Or you might think that an anagram of a word is significant like going for pasta when you mean tapas or hating a girl because she is called Thea (I know you didn't go that far [certainly not all the way]).

You get a Powerpoint to do on an EU country, and you get Estonia, what's the first thing that comes to your mind? Is it, "Oh dear, that's a hard one" or "Hmm, can I name any famous Estonians?"

No, It's that Estonia is an anagram of ATONIES.

.......you think getting a 9-letter word is a form of sexual experience.

.......you're still a virgin at 28.

.......you see 'Kirk Bevins left the room' on the screen, then get up and lock the door behind you.

........you see 'Kirk Bevins entered the room' on the screen, and feel somewhat violated.

.......you wear a nappy during your games so you don't have to stop for the toilet.

.....you do the above, but you're on a train.

... you get excited when you see HAPLOID, DIPLOID, MITOSIS, MEIOSIS, SOMATIC and GAMETES all in one Science lesson and say to yourself "That's what they mean."
... you have to make sure you don't write COETERNAL by accident instead of TOLERANCE in Technology.

...the first ever postcard you send is to somebody you've met once and lives in the USA.

...you sack off the first day of uni to go watch someone play Countdown.

...you actually send money in a birthday card to someone you've never met.

...mainly people from apterous comment on your facebook statuses rather than real friends.

...you ring someone from apterous and talk shit for 5 minutes in the rain resulting in a water damaged phone.

...you take photographs of objects/signs just because it has an apterites name on it or whatever.

...your housemates know all about Kirk Bevins, Matt Morrison, Innis Carson etc.

...you would rather play another goatblitz than head over to milffox.com.

...it's your homepage.
