This happened just the other night:

- You announce that your final Spanish oral exam topic is to describe a major turning point in your childhood, and you're mom turns to you and says, without batting an eyelash "The time when you first heard the Beatles at ten months old and you danced in your crib clad in only your diaper"

...and you correct her with: "No, I was actually going to talk about when Dad bought me my first Beatles album... ."

~ You take your sandals off at zebra walks
~ There's three other people you pretend to be the Beatle who walked in the sequence of crossing (If you were last you were George, etc)

Yeah, that's bloody pathetic...I feel ok with telling you that because I do it too; all the time.
Any time anyone anywhere innocently says a line that was in any Beatles song or movie, I follow it with the next line, too. I get some strange looks, I can tell you!

When you pass someone in a crowded hallway and you stop because they can't get through you look them dead in the eye and say "Come 'ead". . . I did that today. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Your friends live in perpetual fear of anything having to do with the number nine when you're around.

your Beatles (and solo) CDs and Lps are separate from your other Cds and Lps, all in perfect chronological order (in terms of recording, not release - Yellow Submarine before the White album and Let It Be before Abbey Road etc.)...

When certain comments or lines you hear remind u of Beatles song lyrics...

When you use comments ade by the Beatles in interviews or press conferences as examples during a relatively themed discussion on whatever it may be.

Glad to see a topic I started got so many responses [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img] I'll add a few more
-You're doing a poem book in English and every one that allows you to choose anything you've done something related to the beatles
-You hear Beatles lines and start singing everywhere (For example, in the hall at school: "Do you want to know a secret?" I started singing "Do you promise not to tell...")

<font size="2" face="Tahoma, Arial, sans-serif">HAHAHAHAHA!!! I do that too, but it's not just with piano... it's with ANYTHING that doesn't allow me to listen to my Beatles albums!!! Crazy!

BTW, I just wrote a killer social essay... and shamelessly used the Beatles' "Blackbird" as an example of ways citizens can protest government policies - just one more way you can tell that you're completely, totally obsessed with the Beatles... I just hope my teacher's a fan [img]graemlins/afraid3.gif[/img]

You spend most of the busride home from school being quizzed by your friends on the Beatles and watching them fail at trying to stump you (Them: Who was the Beatles first drummer? Me: Pete Best... What was the last album they recorded? Them: *drools*) They'll never stump me! Ahahahahaahaha
