When you realize that even though you've been here a long time....you still feel like a newby

Yup...

When you have at least once increased your total time spent on the forum by 1 day in one day.

Also when you become extreemly uneasy if you are reading a forum and it's not brown

yep, prefer brown to blue

I frequent a couple of other forums besides this one; both are blue by default and I changed the forum settings on both of them so that they are brown for me now.  Wink

I have been unable of late to engage in conversations such as this. Now that I am back, I feel as though I have been away from  "home" so to speak. Perhaps I have. 
But the real answer I believe relates to being on the Forum too long...that measure of time does not exist for me other than the corporeal requirements notwithstanding. I wish that I had no other obligations. I once found myself engaged in a certain communiqué and then realized that my alarm was ringing ànd I needed to get out of bed to attend to my employment.  My bed had not been touched

When you start reading a thread and begin formulating your response... then realize that it is a thread from five years ago, you already replied (again, five years ago)... and the wording is precisely the same.

And then you realize that this has happened to you more than once or twice!  Cheesy


Cheers!

When you measure time based on memorable forum events. (I've done this occasionally. I don't post much here but I lurk a great deal.)

...when your idea of going shopping is going to a boot sale and looking for things to build your next time machine.

When you go shopping at said sale and find old worn-out components for sale, from your current time machine. Undecided

Well played madam.  Wink
That said, I HAVE gone to a thrift shop and found a garment that looked rather useful for  Steampunk outfitting, only to see it's a garment I'd bought ananother thrift shop, taken home, pondered over, rejected and consigned to my 'to be donated' clothing bag several months back.

Fortunately, I realised this in the queue at the cash desk and was able to escape the ultimate humilliation of buying a useless thing twice.

I remain yours,
