The Bride's mom on My Big Fat whatever the other night was wearing a black sweater with a TAR flag on it. Seriously.

Hmm, I didn't catch that. Must have been because it was only a 5-second clip. Still, I doubt they watch anything other than PBS.

Actually, the name of this thread is wrong. Because there's no such thing as too much TAR.

When you're watching a great movie like Godard's "Breathless" in film class, but your favorite parts (by far) are getting to see the Eiffel Tower and the Arc de Triomphe!

Bumpity bump, so we can use the right thread, now that we're watching too much, instead of waiting...

When you celebrate because not only have you gotten your sister hooked, but she's gotten her guy hooked, too, and he -hates- Reality TV.

When you find yourself saying, in Phil voice, at the end of each episode: "Stay tuned (pause) for scenes from our next episode."

When in a fit of pique, because you don't want to clean the garage you empty out and count the odd coin cup. While counting said coins you try to sort and count as fast as you can so you can beat the tree, clock and whatever else counters from season 3. (Now I have $93+ to spend on something frivolous. I see a 'God is in the Tub' shirt in my future.)

...you join TWoP Forums only so you may post to TAR forums (need connection with others obsessed)...

...you see a world almanac and wonder why the teams don't carry one...

...when you buttonhole relatives at at family picnic and tell them they have to start watching TAR, complete with times and station advice...

God, tonight he did it differently, and I felt like a tool for not being able to say it right along with him. He paused after scenes instead of tuned. Why would he do that to me?

He also didn't have the tuuuuuned dragged out. I always have the teuuuned in my head. (I do not know how to represent the sort of 'ew' sound he gets in to that tuned, but man I lurve it.)

Last night I had a TAR dream. Don't remember the details, but I was racing, and Charla was there, and I think someone might have had a hand up a cow's ass.

heckkitty, I know your pain. I have at least one TAR related dream a week...on Monday it was that we were running around and had to measure the angle of something from a window. I kept seeing Millie and Chuck messing up the task because they were too tired.

Sat. I was driving with Mini-Mac, who is 5, when some driver was annoying me by slowing down and half pulling over then getting back in the lane and speeding up. When they finally pulled off the freeway, I yelled "There is a God!" and Mini-Mac pipes from the back "and he's not in the tub!"

....friend and I are flying home from Toronto. We found out our flight was going to be delayed, intially only for a couple hours, but it evolved into a 12 hour delay.
I looked at my friend and asked if she saw a pay phone bank. When she asked why, I asked "How's your Inner Racer?" She laughed and told me that no, I could not call the other airlines looking for a flight to get us home faster.

MacMadame : that is HILARIOUS!!

I know I've not only been watching too much TAR but also suffering from major withdrawal symptoms, as I'm sitting here, using the format function in MS Excel to remove some highlighting in cells, and the toolbar button's option is "NO FILL" and I think: "No Phil"?

When you're seeing the excellent new film "Before Sunset" and when the characters ride a boat past Notre Dame, you instantly think of TAR.

And also when you see a midnight screening of the old B monster movie "Destroy All Monsters" and when a monster destroys the Arc de Triomphe it makes you sad because you think "That's a future pit stop!"

You're driving late at night and see a number plate "CHA1" on the car a little way in front of you, and you go "WOOOO!!!". Then you drive closer and realise it says GMA1.... <insert sheepishness>
