Easiest way to remember is the landing sound has the thump in it and the takeoff doesn't.

your friends, knowing you quilt, start sending you pictures of ones picturing the TARDIS, Star Wars, Star Trek, and anything involving Typography, thinking you absolutely must make them.

(To be fair, I am making a TARDIS one, albeit a bit abstractly. Someday. It is my protection for when Iím sleeping. Gotta close my eyes sometime.)

What would happen if someone sent you a quilt with Weeping Angels all over it?  >:D

Angel cookie cutter + frosted angel cookies + silvery-gray sprinkles = weeping angel cookies.   ;D

I don't think I'd ever sleep again - after all, any image of a Weeping Angel becomes a Weeping Angel!

Oh man, why didn't I think of that for my Christmas party last month?!

You may be evil, but I like how you think. A good gift for an enemy, perhaps? Or for someone who incessantly asks me to "just whip them up" a quilt?

You're packing for a move, and you hit your first instance of "Honey, where's X? I  need it."

"I packed it. Don't know which box."

And it's your Groucho glasses.

This creeps me out in so many ways.  But I'm going to make some.  I wonder how well I can make them stand up?  And move them when nobody's looking?
That's my purse! I don't know you!

CRUD MONKEYS! I absolutely love you guys. Also: you know you have achieved nerdhood when: you hold a special place in your heart for TV series that have been off the air for up to 15ish years. Shows like:

Highlander:The Series
The Sentinel
Mutant X
Blood Ties (this is my most recent obsession... starting in like 2007 I think :))

You are also a nerd (or geek) when you write fanfic for one or more of the above shows.

Last but most certainly not least:

"Bananas are good!"

"Blimey Jeff, get a girlfriend!"

"Sweet, maybe... Passionate, I suppose... But don't ever mistake that for nice."

Name that Doctor!!!!

There are enough nerds in my office that I really might have to try this.  I wonder if I can tint icing grey - a little bit of black would probably do it.  And then get some sprinkles.  If I get a big enough cookie cutter, I could even pipe on scary faces.  Hmmmm.....

When you're standing in line at a signing for the Wheel of Time series, and you get involved with two other people in a discussion as to which Robert Heinlein book is better.

If you are making cookies that are similar to thin gingerbread or sugar cookies, you can make them stand quite easily. It is similar to a stand for paper crafts. cut a slit in the bottom of your unbaked angel cookie, and make a cookie stand with a similar slit. Then put them together when they are baked and enjoy the screams of horror.
