You wonder why your teachers don't sing what they're trying to teach you.

You sing to lizards.

the greens bit wouldn't be so much of a prob over here- Greens is just a term for green veg like cabbage or even Spring Greens!

You know you've been reading Pern too long when...

You tell the person annoying you to 'go jump between'
you scour your country's map looking for places that end in -th
Wondering why you're travelling by car when it only takes a few seconds by dragon...
You want sleeping furs on your bed, and glow baskets in the bedroom.
You look for sweetsand instead of soap.
You ask your fishmonger for packtail instead of monkfish
You look at the cars about you and think' hm, that's a nice shade of gold/bronze...'

I must admit, I've used a few Pernese oaths in my time, and I've lost track of the amount of times I've referred to someone as proddy.

These are all brilliant, though - I wish I could add something different to it.

Edit: Actually, now that I think about it, I have used the phrase: "for the love of little dragons..." before.

You know you are home sick for Pern when you bring your mixture for Klah to work.

I tend to bring my drk chocolate, creamer, cinnamon and nutmeg mixture and use the brekroom's coffee. It tends to make people's noses 'perk up' then they want a taste. ;-D

Although many Trekker friends think it's IthlnghoL Raktajino.:-) Non-alcoholic version of course.

...when you use Pernese terms so often, in front of your husband who doesn't read AMC books...that he can easily translate your Pernese terms to family and friends alike, who want to know what in the world your talking about.

I love some of the above post...as you don't really realize how often you used some of these, until you are reminded of it in someone else comment.

Sandi's... cold breeze, then looking for the dragon coming out of between

Thea's....refering to someone as being *Proody*

then the ever popular *Shards* instead of the more comonly used, bad tempered comments, that we all seem to use way to often....
