-You get a tingling sensation in your loins when you walk into "Staples" or any other office supply store.

-You start start calling little pieces of paper "billets" and your friends don't know what the hell you are talking about.

-All conversations of an intimate nature are preceded by a brief internal rehash of where one stands on the "disclaimer" issue.


-More????

The money that you previously spent on props is now spent on clothes.

Your shoes now have leather soles and not plastic.

When you go to a party the host hides all the silverware and replaces it with plastic spoons.

People actually aproach and want to speak to you AFTER the show.

Your whole act is in a briefcase next to you on the front seat of your sports car and not loaded into the back of a mini-van.

Finally, You no longer get cramps in your hands but those have been replaced by headaches.

You ask a potential romantic partner for their phone number, they give it to you, and you pull an envelope out of your pocket while saying "I had a dream about you last night..."

Wallets hold a new fascination, the smell of Sharpies evoke a feeling of nostalgia, you know what china marker is and the words 'cold reading' leave you with a warm knowing glow.

Your friends mock you saying things like "Let's go get a drink...a drink that starts with a B...is that right? Beer? Did I get it?"

You have elaborate visions of how you'll use your amazing powers to wow your way out of a Mexican prison some day. Maybe that's just me.

-You are one of the few people in the world who can logically associate the words:
"bull" "dog" "clip" and "Ostin."

-You feel less self-conscious when you ask women whom you are attracted to to blindfold you.

After you walk out of a FedEx location and all the carbons from the shipping forms have mysteriously disappeared.

Everytime you write a note you do it in double.

- Any psychological tid-bit you hear of, you try and work into an effect

- You find yourself reading peoples' papers and computers for personal info you can cold-read with later

You use the word spoon instead of fork.

When you burn all the decks of cards in the house in a ritualistic manner, with athame and chanting incantations to banish the evil.

You grow a goatee.

Everything you do you refer to as the "real work", even the shopping list.

Anytime you ask someone a simple question you ask them to pause before they reply to you so that you can first say, "And now, for the very first time, what is your answer . . . ?"

At a friendly card game someone asks you to "shuffle" the cards and you go to great pains to set the record straight, pointing out that you're actually just "mixing" them.

While getting dressed in the morning you hear, from a television turned on in another room, what appears to be an emcee announcing an appearance by Kreskin on a show. Shirtless and shoeless, you rush down the hallway to the room where the television is and realize it's only a commercial for Crisco.

You wake up one morning and your wife informs you that you talked in your sleep the entire night. She demands an immediate answer to the question, "Who's Syzygy?"

Visitors to your home frequently make comments such as, "Cheesh, you must love clipboards!"

You start wearing a gold necklace with a big medallion, maybe. You start writting notes in your pocket. Sorry , but that is the best I can do. I am enjoying the wit shown on this topic. Very funny, keep it up. I'll try to do better, I predict in the near future.
Not clever enough to come up with something orginal, or did I.

Your paper bin gets quickly filled with torn and folded index cards and papers usually containing a single hand written word.

You notice a tendence in taking credit for any coincidence that happens to your close friends.

You start collecting envelopes and markers in all sorts of colors, sizes and textures.

I just checked my waste paper bin, JuanD, and it is probably 80% C.T. scraps and billets! Good call!
