...you find yourself saying "blurg" and "by the hammer of Thor" whenever you get frustrated.

...you have watched the entire first season all the way through this weekend in anticipation of the premiere. And this is the fourth time you've done so.

...you cannot get the lovely Tina Fey out of your mind (though that's been happening since she started hosting Update years ago).

You spend 20 minutes perfecting the recording of the "Brush Your Teeth" song on your cell phone and immediately set it as your ring tone.

You not only say awse but do the arm movement as well.

You wonder if your vulva is swollen.

You watch NBC just to catch 30 Rock promos.

(I'm so glad I'm not the only one who has spent a weekend watching the first season. Actually I did it all on Saturday)

StaceyRosie, I'm sure there are probably dozens and dozens of us who did that this weekend.

... you also say "That's awesome, possum." (but sarcastically).

... you have trouble falling asleep, but instead of contemplating your own life or deep thoughts, you find yourself musing about things like, "What are Cerie's parents like and why do they want her working for TGS?" and "Who should play Liz's brother, Mitch? He's got to be younger, since Liz is clearly an oldest child, and he has to be a Hair since it's in his blood... Is he merely stupid or a slacker/stoner type? Can they get Affleck while he's in town while his wife does Cyrano?" and "Since Joy, Whoopi and Sherri have been on 30 Rock, could we get Elaine Stritch to replace Walters and... uh, Grace Park to replace Elisabeth?" (My inner life = sad.)

I've said BLERGLE for about a year now and only recently became a 30 Rock fan. So now I feel like there has always been Liz Lemon inside of me, I just didn't realize it.

...When you toy with the idea of wearing a ballgown in the evenings just so you can say, "It's after six! What am I, a farmer?"

...when you find an awse quotation ("Well played, Garkle") on TV Guide.com you want to rush around and tell people who understand.

...and you can't believe how happy you are when you finally see new publicity photos of Tina with new hair on twop banners and in promos, because that ponytail thing was just so last season.

...after watching "The Fighting Irish" you spend a good hour thinking of ethnically appropriate names for your fists, since you're not Irish. Say hello to Dylan Thomas and Richard Burton. They're much more adept at wrapping themselves around a tumbler of booze than busting someone's jaw.

...you re-lable the recipe on page 217 in your edition of this cookbook to read "Sylvia's steamin' cornbread" a/k/a "Pregnant Cornbread".

... any time you spy someone who might be considered a double minority, you mutter to yourself, "Yeah, you're not gonna beat that."

... when your students explain that they'll have to miss a class because of the Jewish holidays, after (of course) agreeing and working out any accommodations necessary, you hear a little voice in your head adding "... no matter how ridiculous." Yeah, I'm going to hell, I knew that already.

... you set up a recurring meeting (called "Pregnant Cornbread and Utz Cheese Balls") at lunchtime at the office, so you can share your DVDs with your co-workers and add another dozen viewers to we dozens.

... you meet an "SNL" cast member and the very first thing you ask him about is his appearance on "30 Rock."

...you see this article at cnn.com, and think "If these people knew Jack Donaghy's brother, they would never have fallen for that scam." Although it does take a special kind of person to obliviously write a $1600 check to C.A.S.H., so who knows if that would've even helped.

My favorite line from the article:

Police urged residents to not allow anyone to enter their home or to do business with anyone who randomly knocks on the door.

You know you are obsessed with 30 Rock when, in the morning, you are wakened from a very, very (lol) restful
slumber by your grandmother and are told that you have been panting the name Alec Baldwin at various volumes
for the past hour. Embarrassing, yes, but, erm, gratifying!

You know when you can't help but use a 30Rock-ism on another show thread at least once a day.

When you use situations on 30Rock to give friends advice.

I did a double take in Blockbuster tonight while walking past the kids' section. There was a kid vid called "G.I. Joe: Sigma Six." I swore I saw Six Sigma.
