Post by: Sing_in_the_Rain on August 07, 2011, 11:55:12 AM
This was on the Levi board, and I thought I'd bring it here. Sorry if it's already here.

1) When you tell all your friends about it
2) When you read it more than 2 times
3) When you wish that the future will hurry up and make hoverboards
4) When you and your friends are talking and you relate something to the books

I could go on forever so some please help me! ;D

Post by: Noelle-wa on August 11, 2011, 07:39:38 AM
If I someday have a boy, his name will be Zane. No matter what my husband says! hehe ::)

Lets see...
You find yourself contemplating the reason behind Dr. Cable at random times,
You find yourself contemplating the environmental  message behind the books,
You think about directing or acting in the movie,
You want to dress up as a character for Halloween,
You wished you owned a hoverboard really badly,
You see someone with too much plastic surgery and think about pretties...

I could go on for hours.  ;)

You're Shay! You are wild, opinionated and a great hover boarder! With out you, Tally would have never made it to the smoke. You are a great friend but you will never let Tally live down the fact that she "stole" David from you. All you want is to be with Tally saving the/protecting the pretty-heads. You need to learn to be more forgiving but any friend you have (and I'm sure you have many) are the luckiest people in the world and know it! Keep up the good work!

You relate song/lyrics to what the characters would say.

You feel tally's depression over the death of zane every morning.(i like david better though. But still.)

You get these dreams about the books.

You hear cutter And start freaking out.

You basically get paranoid to every sound or thing that reminds you of the books.

And of course, You check out this scott westerfeld page every chance you get, in hopes of discovering something new about uglies, and to your dismay only find things about leviathon, a book you cannot get from your local library, unfortunatley. -__-

3)When angry at friend for taking the spotlight, you call them Tally
4)You Totally flip out when someone calls you Pretty.
5)Your worse insult is Pretty-minded or bubblehead.
6)Everytime someone sneaks up on you, you think it's Dr. Cable trying to grab you.
7)You spent more often than not on this forum...

When you start using the words boogus bubbly icy surge ect. anytime you can.
When you refer to stupid people as rusties.
You suddenly start to care  about our dependance on oil.
When people talk about the uglies movie the little fan girl in your head dances.
You wish theyd hurry up and put the  movie in theatres.
You write fanfiction so good it could be part of the book.
You think about random scenerios with the character all the time.

Old thread, but
When you answer your teacher in pretty slang on accident
You squeak because the girl who sits next to you is reading it
You're begging your friend to read it even though they recommended it to you in the first place
You spazz out about your two classmates named Zane
You have a screenshot of your dictionary app explaining that Peris can mean a lovely or graceful person
You talk about it with your mom
You cannot hear the word cake without laughing
You no longer can take it as a compliment when someone calls you special

You know your obessed when you throw the book across the room when you are mad at a character, then run over to it pick it up and start reading again. It is just that good.

I've been tempted to do that. I'd break my Kindle, though, so usually I stampede my house and punch pillows.

YKYOWUW you ask people if they're ugly-minded, pretty-minded, or Special-minded. (And occasionally, don't just get people looking  at you like you're insane! ;D)

you find out there's a girl named Tally in your band class and start fangirling

you mentally call one on the administrators at your school Dr. Cable

you check the westerblog, fanfiction.net, and google results for the Uglies movie daily

you put Bogus to Bubbly on your Christmas list (but then t turned out my mom already got it for me, lol)

you categorize people into Uglies, Pretties, and Specials (and Hogwarts houses, Divergent
factions, godly parents, etc.)

YKYOWUW you call yourself a bubblehead (my friend actually understood the reference)

And when you see an ad for half-off cable sweaters, and you think of Dr. Cable knitting a sweater and burst out laughing.

And when you hear the Total Drama theme song "I Wanna Be Famous" and think of Extras.

when you realize that your sister shares various traits with Tally youngblood:

they hate spaghetti.
 they share same  the same birthday.
They both dated a guy named  David.
there's a silver heart shaped  locket  in the bathroom  that I think belongs to this particular sister.

( I should add that this the same sister  that I've said looks like Deryn Sharp. Weird.)

When you can recite several quotes from Uglies from memory.

When you do Uglies characters on Akinator.

On a similar note, I did Bovril and got excited because it guessed it, and my friend asked me why I was excited and I said it got this character from Leviathan and it turned out she was reading it! And because she knew I liked Scott Westerfeld!

I qualify for all of the above except reading it more than 2 times I just finished extras this morning!! hehe also another way you could be obsessed is if you think you can freeze yourself and become tally in 300 years. but that's just insane. also if you made a braclet with your friend and pretend its a tracker from Dr. Cable. o and if you play games reenacting the book ive done the last two ;D

When you keep trying to have conversations about it with your friend even though she's only read the first book. And then you mention Shay's eye clock or the Crims or the Cutters or Zane or something and she stares at you blankly and then you start ranting about how she needs to finish the series.

I'm guilty of the second one  ::)

When you have dreams about an Uglies movie
When you're on vacation and you spend half the time rereading Specials
When you say the phrase "special circumstance" to describe something about your school
When your parents are talking about ice skating and how much coordination it requires, and you say it can't be that much cause even a bubblehead can do it

When you're doing the neurons subunit in Psychology and when it talks about neural pathways and interconnections and brain damage, you relate all of it to Uglies and it actually helps you understand and relate back to the material and heck yeah I will use this in my examples.
