you know you're a DTWS addict when.....

#1
1. you bail on a salsa class to watch the show.

2. you consider asking your ballroom coach to reschedule a lesson (a request you have NEVER MADE because you LOVE DANCING) to watch the results show.

3. you ORDER A FREAKING POSTER from the abc site.

4. your friends know to ask you about the show IMMEDIATELY when they see you, because inevitably you'll bring it up immediately anyway.

my friends know better than to come near me because they'll get stuck in a conversation they ultimately want out of. i also don't answer the phone, or if on the phone, hang it up promptly when the show starts.

the next thing i see coming is our little weekly "chat-a-thon" during the show. i'm actually really looking forward to it!

Now I just have to convince the BF that I need the TV and the computer both! Usually he goes on the computer when I watch DWTS.

The words "my show" actually came out of my mouth! I used to be a NO TV type.

Also, left Costco without finishing shopping. Missed the first dance anyway.

You know you're a DWTS addict when:

You reschedule dinner with a good friend you haven't seen in months to Thursday at 6:30 (no one in New York eats dinner at 6:30) at a restaurant close to your apartment and then keep looking at your watch during dessert. You do this so you can watch a tv show and chat online with people you've never met.

Why schedule anything for a Thursday night over the next couple of months anyway? I told a couple of people that "I might have to work late" just to get out of potential early-evening commitments for yesterday....

The TiVo has actually lessened my addiction. I went out for sushi last night, got home late, and at this point have only watched as far as George Hamilton's Quickstep. I'll probably watch the rest tomorrow or something. It's freeing -- I've got other things to do, and I know I can go do them and not miss anything because it will just be there waiting for me on the TiVo.

And plus you get to "instant replay" as much as you like (and fast forward through commercials).

You know you are an addict when you are at the US Figure Skating Championships in the stands holding your cell phone waiting for the call to come in as to who was dropped. And then you squeal "yes" when you find out it was Tatum (sorry Nick - but I think its for the best - she's nuts) and then you immediately tell a bunch of people who don't even know what the show is. Coming home to the ballroom world tomorrow.:)
