My friends discovered today that I respond more readily to the name of any Les Mis cast member than that of my own :oops:

When you find yourself singing "Someone in a Tree" in the shower.
THAT'S sad. But oh so glorious.

When you think a song from a movie, Gabriellas song, really belongs in a musical and even wants to write a musical just to give it a place in a musical... #-o

When your friends write perfect orchestrations and you write a musical to fit around them (we're a musical crowd, so we do a lot of composing).

When you actually know who Garou is, not as a famous French-Canadian singer but as "the guy who played Quasimodo in Notre Dame de Paris", and recognized him when he sang at the Open Ceremonies for the Olympics. XD

Oh that I know everything about! I have a bunch off people whos names instantly makes me thinks off them as actors in cats, rather than the enterteinmers/actors they are. Some off them Ive heard off before, like Ann Louise Hanson, but more than one Ive always recognise primarly by theyre cats names... Any one here who knows who Lisette Pagler and Katja Kortström is, for example? :lol:

~ When you type a character's name such as Eponine, Elphaba, Fiyero or Marius into a webpage and you feel like having a row with Safari for saying you've spelt it wrong!

~ You see someone in the street who looks like somebody from a musical and think "That's a Christine/Curley/Velma/Mimi/Javert!"...........

~.....You also tell the unsuspecting victim this.

- When whenever you walk into school and start monologuing rather than saying "hello", your friends ask which musical that's from.

- When you feel the need to defend any show on Broadway if someone insults it, even if you don't care for it all that much. (Which is rare, but it still happens...)

-You cringe whenever you see "theater" rather than "theatre"

As far as the ipod thing, I just go to "Albums" and it will say "Wicked- Original Cast Recording" or "Next to Normal: OBC." I only recently got into musical theatre obsessively, so I don't have many Broadway CD's on my ipod.

You can teach safari the words, though. Just left click on the word, and click "learn word."
