    And add some of your own too...

    At every fast food joint you go to, you order "the special, no pickles" regardless of the fact that you LIKE pickles.

    You believe wearing a colorful wig and tight clothing can help you get away with anything.

    You check the sides of old book pages for Russian characters.

    Every time you see a black Mercedes, it reminds you of Sark.

    You notice every Ford Focus on the road.

    You use the phrase "There are just so many problems with this..." at every possible opportunity.

    You have suspicions that your spouse may actually be a double.

    Your non- Alias obsessed friends (like you have any of those left! Hah!) refuse to talk to you about Italians, prophecies, pickles, wigs, parent/daughter relationships, spies or anything else that might lead to a discussion about Alias.

    You actually BUY a blue Ford Focus. (With gold rims, of course)

    You wonder if Sark actually could be Irina's son.

    You develop opinions and theories about this and other unanswered facets of the show, and spend a large amount of time formulating arguments for both sides of the debate...

    The main question you ask yourself shopping is "Would Sydney wear something like this?"

    You have seen every episode. Ever. More than 5 times a piece.

    You went to see Daredevil just for Jennifer Garner.

    You flip out when you see Michael Vartan in One Hour Photo married to someone else.

    The mention of weddings, rings, or two years just gets you incredibly ticked off.

    After getting a bad grade on a paper you tell your friend about your professor saying "legally he's right, ethically he's an ass."

    If the topic of TV shows comes up, you automatically ask the person "Do you watch Alias?" and if they say they've never heard of it... you immediately end the conversation.

    You hear the songs played in the show.. and you instinctively listen for the lines of the characters.. and know precisely when their lines occurred in the song.

    Your history teacher mentions something about the KGB.. and you suddenly think "Irina?"

    You have a codename that people actually call you by.

    You think having no first name is a perfectly acceptable thing.

    Old Asian men in wheelchairs creep you out.

    You will never view epoxy in the same way again.

    You find yourself trying to find good, compelling reasons to sway your significant other that your next child/pet should be named "Irina" or "Sydney."

    You feel aggravated and insulted when you watch the episode of "Frasier" where Victor Garber plays Dr. Crane's British butler. ("Years of agent training and experience, wasted...")

    You feel a strange urge to bite Mike Tyson's ear off every time you think of "Jimmy Kimmel Live."

    Whenever you hear a truly interesting song, you immediately think of how that song would fit into a scene from Alias.

    You find yourself criticizing the REAL CIA based solely on your knowledge of Alias.

    You think Jerry Springer's guests have boring, uncomplicated family/friend relationships and easy, simple-to-fix personal problems.

    You become incredibly irritated when people say, "That girl Sydney, doesn't she really report to someone else?" and can tell them exactly how many episodes behind the times they are.

    You begin fantasizing about planting listening devices on your significant other's work clothes, just to see if you can find anything exciting/spy-worthy.

    You know what J/I, S/V, S/W, Sarkney, Slark, slash, and shipper are, and have opinions on all of them.

    Every time you hear the Nokia ringtone, you get excited even though there's no way it could be Vaughn.

    You look for air vents you could crawl into incase of an emergency.

    On Monday morning instead of saying "hello" to your friend you just say "Did you SEE VAUGHN'S BOXERS???"

    The only people you have on your AIM buddy list are people you've met through Alias

    When you begin to doze off in history class and only snap back to attention when the teacher uses the words "Alliance" or "Covenant."

    You record every episode, then go out and buy the DVDs as well.

    You dream about Irina Derevko at least once a week.

    Sweiss does not sound like a candy bar to you

    You assume that anyone who wears dark eyeliner is evil.

    You meet a nice person and immediately become suspicious of their motives.

    You constantly try to figure out ways to get Jack and Irina back together.

    You actually get these jokes and pass them on to other friends who are addicted to Alias.

    these aren't as good as yours....

    You're in a dangerous part of town and you think to yourself, "I could take these guys, I watch Alias!"

    You think about what Irina and Jack were like when they were married.

    You spend your free time...and I mean ALL your spare time on Alias websites and forums

    You've seen all the bonus features and have heard all the commentaries on the DVD's (Including Ken Olin's impression of Jennifer Garners mom lol)

    Instead of asking "why?" someone is doing something you ask what their "endgame" is.

    ....i tried :/ lol

    Original but still not as good:

    You Know You're Addicted to Alias When...

    ...whenever you're walking down an empty corridor you can't help but picture your self in slow motion.

    ...you make a 'previously on Alias' sequence detailing your past couple of weeks in your head.

    ...you THINK about buying the action figures!

    ...you begin to wander if your friends dead friend may turn out to be alive.

    ...you spend far too much of your time thinking about how Lauren could come back.

    ...you write a script for the finale (see my posts on the 'finale theories' forum here! :p)

    ...you keep expecting some man in a suit to walk up to you whilst your studying outside and offer you a job.

    ...you put on a fake-accent with someone you just met to see if they buy it (they did!!)

    ...you can't help but flip-out every time you see 47 - no matter where - when you even try to make 47 out of other numbers you see.

    ...when you... um....do this.

    You recognise every disguise in the season 4 credits, have your favourites, and freak out at the ones you don't recognise.

    BTW: mine seem to be influenced more by how the music changes rather than the disguises themselves
    eg: the librarian and dune buggy shots.

    Sometimes when I'm walking I'll have the season 4/5 Alias opening credits song in my head and walk to it like Sydney. I'm such a loser...

    When you're so excited about a new episode coming that you actually dream up a whole new episode while you're asleep.



    And upon waking up, critique it on whether it could be a real Alias
    episode, and if it is, how true to the series, fast-pased, and
    generally Alias worthy it was.



    Yeah, me, last night.

    Or how about... you keep the number of friends you have on certain websites at 47 at all times.

    Not that I do that or anything...

    I named my ipod the Rambaldi symbol

    And in my history class, whenever i hear anything about the KGB, i think: IRINA!!!!!

    And lately at work, when I walk through the doors that say "Authorized Personnel Only" I feel like I'm part of APO. I can't help it!

    Crazy how addicted I am to a tv show.

    I've had dreams about Alias episodes before, though I don't really remember them, I know I had them. I do remember a dream I had about going to see Star Wars Episode III about a year before it came out, it was wierd.

    The dream I had was so fast-paced, I think my heart was racing during the dream.  I mean like, the real me.

    Oh, and I wasn't Sydney, which is what I would normally do in a dream.  I was a random civilian that was on her side (I dreamt that Anna Espinosa and Sark kidnapped Sydney and released her into a city that was filled with criminals Syd helped put away... so they all hated her.  I was one of a group of five that actually liked her, so most of the dream was running through every corner of the city trying to find a place to hide, but never knowing if turning a corner meant death...).

    You know you're addicted to Alias when you exclusively buy Nokia cell phones and set the Nokia ring tone for life! Yes I was one of them....However, they don't seem to use Nokia phones in the series anymore.
