How about when you start having ppk dreams?

I had a dream last week that we all played rattlesnake in a big field (not sure if everyone played that game at recess when they were kids, but trust me, it was the funnest game on the blacktop). There were hundreds of us and we ran really fast and it was amazing. Best rattlesnake ever.

What about when you do things for PPKers that you possibly wouldn't normally do for people in real life because they might think you were weird?
I'm thinking of the glowing earwax thread... <3 raspberrycomplaint

I do this, and I can own that.

I had a PPK dream, only it turned into a (kind of funny) nightmare.

yea.. all of these...and i really do like it :)

I saw a car the other other day with the registration "MBM" and thought that Mrs BadMouth should have that car. I have never met her.

I started reading this thread, and now I've completely forgotten what I just remembered I needed to do... More PPK it is then!

I'm sure there are tons more and it's not a bad thing, I'd be lost without you, my dear PPK!


I am fairly new but this has been a GREAT resource!!

When a friend shows me something funny, I immediately think "has the PPK seen this? I have to post it!"

Lately all of my sentences start with "There was this thread on PPK...." I'm sure I have to be annoying the shiitake out of somebody by now.

It does! It's like Fight Club without the violence, and you're allowed to talk about it.

(There's even another similarity: I start to check out people who buy vegan items, wondering whether they belong to the same "club" as me...)

Yes! I feel like I say this in all the conversations I have with my girlfriend lately. Also when I'm on the PPK, I always start reading the funny parts aloud to her... I hope she doesn't mind!

I read bits aloud to people on occasion...they generally look at me like I'm nuts. It is okay though, I like you all better. I feel like the PPK is my collective Ladyfriend...it has taken the place of my love life.

Is it wrong that I realized this morning I was going back to the office and thought "Hey, I get to reconnect with PPK!"? If it is, I don't want to be right.

I tell people "oh my friend said...." when referring to one of you PPKrazies. So, you know, you're all really important and resourceful people in my life, and everyone must think I have a lot of smart friends.... they just don't know that they're on the internet.

I was really having problems in the grocery store when I overheard two shoppers discussing the asparagus. It was so hard not to start laughing out loud.
