Default Warning signs of homebrew addiction

Hi, my name is don, i am a brew addict. Starting a list. please add to it.

1. i was at the grocery store, we went down the feminine hygene isle, i saw a package titled something like Azo Yeast, and the first thing that popped in my head was brewing yeast.

2. you mix yeast saved from batches with sugar and other stuff just to see something fermenting in between batches.

3. you count out change to cash in to buy your next list of ingredients.

4. your friends at break time ask you if all you know how to talk about is making beer.

5. you wake yourself up talking in your sleep about gravity readings and mash calculations.

6. your friends that really like your brew refer to you as "Sir Brewmaster"

please add to the list if you know other warning signs.

You have run more circuits to power your fermenter/kegerator/keezer

8. your three year old daughter argues with you over who the brewmaster is, she says "i'm the brewmaster", i say, "no, i am the brewmaster."
9. your three year old daughter knows the names of several styles of beer.

Yeah, but can she identify them in a blind tasting?

10.) You know all of your coworkers' beer preferences, and/or swear that you'll find a beer for the token "I don't like beer" person.

you have the next 4 months of brewing planned out and written on your closet mirror in window marker.

I've also started looking at random items in the grocery store wondering how they'd ferment/add to a beer.

You take a vacation day just to brew. (I wasn't going to have time during the weekend, and my pipeline was in jeopardy.)

You have a pipeline.

You rationalize your brewing decision to others.
