"Isn't This Just Lovely and Normal?" You're a Gleek When…

-You snicker when the weatherman says there is a chance of drizzle.
-You're visiting a nursing home one afternoon, walk by a player piano in the hallway and do a double-take because you realized it was plinking out "On My Own."
-You seriously contemplate calling out sick from your second shift at work because Glee is returning after the World Series hiatus and you want to watch "Wheels" in real time.
*Note: I hope no one is put out by the title. That line made me laugh, and I don't mean anything bad by it. Of course, if this thread stays around, I don't mind if it gets changed by either the mod or popular demand.

You buy the Glee cd, and within 2 weeks you know all the lyrics to "Bust a Move." All of them. Despite never having heard the song before it was on the show.

... and when you're having a bad day and your best friend calls to randomly bust out a few lines of Halo/Walking on Sunshine and then hangs up before you can respond.

YAGW... you see a sign in the metro for a sushi shop with the word 'dragon' and you think about Dianna Agron ;)

YAGW...The internal radio network at work starts playing an original of a Glee song shortly after the song airs on Glee and you grin, pretty sure the programmer is a fellow Gleek and consider sending an email about it ;D

In a choice between paying your electric bill or buying "OMG! Kurt wore that shirt on Glee!!!" you (of course) get the shirt...
And wear it all the time...and lovingly refer to it as your "Kurt Shirt"
(Hangs head in shame... )

YAGW...you tivo Tyra Banks and suffer through her megalomania, just for the cast interview.
YAGW... you realize that the recently played songs in your I-Pod for the past month consists primarily of those from the show.
YAGW... you hear "Take A Bow" and "Keep Holding On" on the radio, proceed to switch stations and totally scoff that your show did those so much better.

YAGW when you think about giving up the team for Glee.
YAGW when you wear a striped shirt and a friend calls it your "Finn shirt".
YAGW especially when you are a girl.

...your boyfriend saves you an article from the paper about Chris Colfer
...at dances and parties, everyone around you gets upset they're playing the Journey version of Don't Stop Believin' instead of the Glee version
...hearing "Defying Gravity" immediately makes everyone in the room go "KURT!!!!"
...you get in an argument whether the music from Glee is good music or merely "showtunes"

-Your facebook profile song is a glee song
-You turn the bus ride home from school into a singalong featuring "Defying Gravity" and "Proud Mary"
-You begin accidentally typing random quotes into an essay about Sui China... and then work them in rather than getting rid of them
I love the thread title, btw.

...after resisting forever, you discover this show on hulu and stay up all nght watching the available episodes there. Then don't work the next day because you are surfing the net for the episodes you that weren't on hulu (still looking for a complete version of acafellas).
... your friend is having a bad day so you send him a compilation of the Glee clips you found while surfing the net rather than working.
... you schedule Thursday nights to watch Glee (no tv) on hulu, then realize Thursday Night Football has started. So you quit work early and skip dinner in order to watch Glee before the game starts rather than wait even ONE MORE DAY to see the new episode.

...You finally replace your show of reference (Oh that reminds me of this time on Glee...) after ten years (I love you Sports Night, but my friends can't take it anymore)

... you noticed that in "Ballads" whoever is doubling Chris in the piano is wearing jeans and not Kurt's beige trousers
... you have forced fed the complete soundtrack to all your friends until they know it by heart
... your boyfriend can sing quote Chris' DG story word by word after you told it to him ten thousand times

You have a very detailed dream that combines your current Acapella choir drama with Glee... which turns into a tv show promo.
Details? Here you go...
My acapella choir has a show to put on, and it turns out that Rachel Berry is part of our group. Within the first half of our show, for some odd reason a lot of members leave (apparently, my dream acapella choir has a lot of semi-loyal members) or step out......(one of my friends goes to a school to ask for donations for the choir...weird, I know). Halfway through the concert, those of us still there are freaking out because we've run out of the repetoire that we can sing without all those missing members. I volunteer to go find the members and bring them back.
I bump into Rachel Berry in the hall, who was supposed to be singing in the group but left halfway through our first act...so I went strict on her and told her to man up, stop being a diva, and get back in there. She said she'd rather not sing, and proceeded to run in the direction of Sue Sylvester's office...where Sue would easily give her a pass out of choir singing (all Rachel would have to do is fake cry or reason with Sue). So I criticised her for taking the easy way out of getting out of the concert.
But as she approached Sue's office, she bolted around the corner, and I tried to catch up with her...found her in the psychologist/counsellor's office (who looked like my psych prof)...and I overheard her talking about how hard it is being a teenager at her age, etc, revealing to the psychologist how little self esteem she has and how she feels she has to be good at everything and do everything. Seeing as I was (in this dream) a year older than she, I interjected in the conversation (uninvited) and said how the pressure she's feeling isn't abnormal and she's not the only one who has those insecurities, and nor will it go away. In fact, the next year, she'll have the same insecurities that she has now...she'll just be a year older.
Then Rachel Berry approached me and gave me a big hug...(I guess I went from one of her most hated people to her favourite person)
And apparently, the spoiler for that episode was that I would overhear something I wasn't supposed to hear, and that Rachel Berry would do something really nice and really unexpected.
It felt good to be hugged like that. Even in a dream. Sigh.

Like MisMichie, you have a dream about the Glee kids. It's one of your regular dreams, but somehow they main players are replaced by those from your favorite television show. You don't complain.

...you're really glad other people have been having Glee dreams because it means you're not crazy ;)
(Mine: I dreamed I was a McKinley High student and the class was going on some sort of field trip related to hiking that required getting up realllllly early in the morning. I was the only kid who turned up and I was sitting in the back of the bus, on my Blackberry, texting Rachel that she needed to hurry or she would be late. And Will was driving the bus.)
