When you don't live in California but spend more money at the Magic Castle than you do on rent.

That you know the reason why Al Flosso denied knowing where Harry Blackstone, Sr. was when asked by a visitor to his shop. That you know the color of Penn's fingernail polish. That after buying Slow Burn, you just had to buy Extreme Burn as well. That you bought a Predicta-Total from Bob Mason/Abbott's years ago, then just had to have Clearly Predictable from Elmwood. That you have both a single load and a double load dove pan. That you use the Boris Wild marked deck as an "out" for all your card routines. That you think the reason Al Goshman died was his overexposure to sponge ball dust. That you stopped blowing up balloon animals due to having too much ballon talc in your lungs. That you purchased a vehicle based on your magic table being able to fit flat in the back seat. That you have never thrown out a magic magazine, lecture notes, flier, convention roster, or ID badge on anything magic related in your lifetime. That when decided to do a linking ring routine, you first had to purchase at least 5 DVDs on the subject in addition to the 4 sets of rings you already have and the four book routines. That you have at least 5 full thimble sets by Fakini, Vernet, including some in cheap plastic, but have never done a thimble routine in your lifetime... ditto for all the three shell game sets you have collected. That you have The Invisible Deck in both regular and jumbo size. That you keep all your old expired Stevens Magic catalogs. That you know who Lee is from Denny and Lee's. That you know what P & L and L & L stands for. That you cannot understand how "quick change" or yo-yo routines ever became "magic", but you still enjoy it nonetheless. That you know what heavily advertising magician also does a yo-yo routine. That you actually saw a performer do "Snowstorm" without first saying he was explaining it to some child in a warm climate who had never seen snow what snow was. That you know what color the Jim Sommer's rip off Zig Zag was. That you actually saw a dove performer who did not kiss his doves first before placing them in a vanishing bird cage. That you know how funny and why it was funny for Karrell Fox's "Six Card Repeat" otherwise known as the "throw away" card trick. That you know what made Mike Caldwell famous. That you know who made the mop famous as part of the act. You have at least 25 miniature "baby" sponge bunnies from various sponge bunny packages, including in red, yellow, 3D, and cheap white. You know whose Michgian grave magicians leave coins on. That you know what kind of cookie Mac King likes. And last but not least, you have your own ongoing stash of velcro in case you need it.

(Ok, that's me. I know what Flosso said when asked about the whereabouts of my uncle harry, sr., I even know the why the inqiring party asked. And he wasn't the first! Plus he asked Flosso out at Coney Island, not in the shop)

When you find yourself answering others statements about if you know this you know too much.

Whoops... When you know Harry's brother's name... When you know how a Kitchen fits in all this... When you know some of Percy Abbott's stuff ended up over at FAB Magic... When you have on VCR the time magic was performed at the Super Bowl and who was performing... That you know the name of Gay's friend who has been on Abbott's stage more than any other human being... that you recognized this friend in the audience on "Masters of Illusion"... that you actually know where The Amazing Jonathan is currently performing at... And last but not least, you know how Al Flosso actually demo-ed his Imp Bottle.

That you have done the "paddle" move using a spoon- showing how you can't eat off of it as both sides of the spoon are curved up... And last but not least- you constantly use blogging on The Magic Café' as a way to procrastinate while at work...- guilty!

Thanks, really enjoyed this thread, I compiled a "best off" list of several of these for handing out at Ring 211 meeting on May 25. Has been a blast. Keep it going, pretty convicting and funny yet too true stuff. Roger from http://www.ChristianMagician.org

It is a fun thread to read every day. I keep thinking nobody else can come up with anything and then, BAM!! a new, funny, message.

I have a suggestion. SInce you're taking the "best off" it, why not just take it all and do a book??

-=tabman

And another one: You actually know how to spell Amazing Johnathan's name!!
...Your professional woodworking and "tender" loving care in the products you make, make the wait worthwhile. Thanks for all you do...

When you can remember and owned perhaps the best ever kid's close up trick- called "El Toro"- it featured a small palm sized round blue plastic case with a little guy holding a sword-- you'd then place a small "key" directly into the little case-- and by hitting a little handle on the side of the case, the sword would directly, visably, and openly pass right through the miniature key that was earlier inserted in the path of the downward stroke of the sword... Wow!

Or, that you have ever been cut by vanishing cane... that you have kids magic kits by Mac King or Barnes and Noble beginning juggling sets even though you are an adult... that you have at least 5 sets of dice in that you never know when you might need to do a dice roll... that you have enough magic stands that if you set them all up in a row, they'd have the surface volume of several pool tables... that you have a miniature, regular sized, and jumbo Strat-O-Spheres that you can use with plastic fruit... that you have performed coin matrix with coins, bottle caps and Fakini miniature sticky balls... that you have used a billet... that you have several yards of magician's rope... and several sizes of close up pads... that you have actually heard of "Nosey Volunteers"... that you know what college Penquin Magic started at... or where David Copperfield's island is... that you have different sized coloring books... that you read the Ring and club reports in The Linking Ring and MUM... that you have worn out more than one PK rings... that you have uttered the words "Peter Rabbit Go To Town" at least 50 times... and last but not least- you own your own pair of patent leather shoes.

(That's brother's plural, while Uncle Harry (Henry) had half siblings from his mom, Barbara's, first marriage, there were three Boughton boys, Henry (Harry), Peter (Pete) and William. Everybody knows Pete who toured with Uncle Harry, but few know William.)

When you actually take time to note such things on a magic discussion board.

When you have just enough extra money to get your pick up, which is your only means of transportation, a badly needed tune up, but instead spend the money on an illusion that you might actually be able to perform once a year.

or when you know how many posts they have, are giving odds on when Jonathan will reach 50,000, and wonder what the label will be for that many posts.

You know that you're spending WAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY too much time with magic when you actually read all these posts....... while you are practicing one-handed cuts!

Or when you name your dog Thurston.

When you know the dates of every and all magic events hapenning around the world and you also know the names of every attendees and performers, lecturers and dealers. You even know the names of those who bought items from dealers and also what items they bought at what price. And last but not least you even know the names of magicians who were not paying attention to what is happening at the events because they were goggling their eyes on those pretty chicks there ... particularly those who cannot take their eyes off Nani Darnell.
