Hello sad people.

This is a sad, saaaaad thread for the sad people of HSN. biggrin.gif

As some of you may be aware, the HSN forum can be a wee bitty addictive at times. Some of us have been here for years, the majority of us are in uni, ...yet we still find ourselves vigilantly lurking on a friggin High Still Notes forum.



SO....you know you're addicted to HSN when...




When you refresh the Whats On Your Mind page about every minute or so to see if there are new posts?

Before you go to school in the morning you'll think "I've got 2 minutes!! Time to check if tehre's new posts on HSN!"

You are watching tv anf the HSA advert comes on and your ears perk up thinking it was "HSN".

At school, you'll see some hsn notes somewhere and it makes your day cos you know the world is ALIVE.

The majority of people on your msn are HSNers

You have gone to 2 HSN meets, have met with over 10 of the board's members...

You think you recognise HSNers in Glasgow city centre, when they're actually just some random person, or you go to a place and think, "I wonder if I'll bump into HSNMemberX..."

I am actually starting to get worried, I stopped doing highers nearly 2 years ago now and I'm still here.

And watching the online list to see if anyones replying to your post or thread probably shows you're addicted too.

I'd be pretty freaked out if someone from t'internet came up and spoke to me. It would just be wierd. You'd have to actually speak to them, and not have time to think, type and edit your reply to them tongue.gif

I've met John, Dave, Scott, Lesley, Alan, Khalid, Peter, Derek (kind of), Isla and Equib.

People really ARE like what they are like online. (Im sure they will all tell you I am a chubby shy mumbling idiot.)

The only people I talk to on MSN now are people I've met from here.

Here's looking at you, Lauren.

First person off here I met IRL was Sharon. tongue.gif

"Hi."
"Hi."
"Are you who I'm looking for?"
"Are you who I'm looking for?"
"Yeah."
"Okay, let's get the bus to Harthill!"

Or when you're on here at 7:47 am tongue.gif

I actually have General Chat in my wee quick link thingies at the top on Firefox. What are those called? It's up there anyway. I tend to go online, open Gmail, MySpace, WebCT then HSN one after the other in separate tabs.

It's quite bad.

Followed by

"You're smaller than I thought you'd be!"
"Thats because you are so bloody tall."

Yeahh, and you were convinced that I thought you were a paedophile which was actually really annoying.

Its funny, Dave (especially), Scott, Lesley and Khalid are smaller than I thought they'd be. tongue.gif
