    ...when you order swimwear because it looks like a skating costume. (not quite a yikes, but perhaps close)

    ...when you're nodding along with many replies on this thread.

    Thank you for making all of this happen, Golden Skate! And thank you for making me welcome despite my newbie-ness.
    Welcome, and oh yes, the fellow feeling here is so strong....

    Thank you ever so much for this. I'd been lurking for a while, and I decided it was high time to make it official and join this forum properly.

    You know you are a figure skating fan when you spend your Sunday, doing detective work on when Evgenia Medvedeva was in Charleston, South Carolina working on her free program with Shae-Lynn Bourne.

    Or go squint-eyed trying to decide if that smudgy dark blur at the back of a TCC photo has hair or legs quite long enough to be who we think it is or isn't.....

    Oh I feel you there.. in fact, mine is even sadder since all I have to type is the letter “H” and iPhone corrects to “Hanyu” immediately.

    Also... when you’ve spent literal days crafting and customizing multiple playlists of your favorite skating performances.

    You drive 2 days to Boston to see Gracie. You drive 2 days to Philadelphia *in the hopes of* seeing Gracie.

    When I listen to classical music, I can remember certain individuals skating to a particular piece. I recall Kwan’s Lyra Angelica, Zayak’s Reverie by Debussy, and Asada’s Rachmaninoff in 2014. That’s when I know I am hooked.

    When you go to Dairy Queen and read the "only at DQ" on your Blizzard as: "only at Don Quixote"

    When an otherwise unremarkable summer intern stands out to you because he, too, is a figure skating fan (there is nobody else where I work; to clarify, said summer intern has stellar academic credentials, but they all do...)

    As I mentioned earlier, it gets even worse when the 'real' (aka the composer's) music starts sounding wrong because you've listened to the skater's cut too often
