You know you're addicted to LV when...

Everything except LibriVox (yes, this is where knitting gets discussed. Now includes non-LV Volunteers Wanted projects)

You know your addicted when...
you keep your wife company, she's sewing in the basement - me, just outside in the dining shelter, with the laptop, doing some PLing, getting dripped on in the pouring rain because the seams in the roof leak :lol:

Too funny David! Fotunately, I only needed to pack the Zoom H2! (I don't own a lap top.)

... you come to the LV forum because the DJ's blog you were reading was just too full of grammatical and spelling errors!


.... you were the last poster in 'you know you are addicted thread'. :roll: :mrgreen:

You know you are addicted to Librivox when you have the forums set as your home page. :lol:

... when the weather is really nice, it is the first summer evening, and instead of reading a book in the garden you go back inside and record.

...You get excited when you get a copyright clearance OK from PG on a book you really want to record!

(It is a rule 6 copyright book - I knew it wasn't renewed but to be to get PG to clear it - yea!) :lol: :lol: :lol:

...you do your thing on LV, then log out, then log back in because you got a PM, then are bummed because there are no new posts since your last visit, so you post in the "you might be addicted" thread.

Totally hypothetical, of course. :roll:

Yes! I had my first experience of that this weekend and startled my DH by yelling out loud when I read the e-mail! I had done research at the U.S. Copyright Office in Washington, D.C. during a vacation trip to determine that a copyright had not been renewed, and was excited that PG validated my research after nearly two months of suspense. Truly a thrill!

When you spend an hour repeatedly refreshing the main page of the forums, just so you can catch a significant post number for 'Been Around the Block.'

And when you spend the time you're not clicking composing a fifth birthday poem for LibriVox.
So little space, so much to say.

... you remember you too have something you should be keeping an eye on on the stove when you have to reread a sentence you just recorded: la Thénardier souleva le couvercle d'une casserole qui bouillait sur le fourneau (basically, a woman lifts the lid of a cooking pot).
