    I wasn't in it?

    Nope, sorry. I think it's the fact that his picture is always on my avatar. It was a strange dream. He was blowing balloon animals and he killed a little kid. Actually, I think it was more of a strange nightmare...

    When I talk to friends, and want to say lol or something, I end up writing : lol, with the ":" in front of it! I casually will be talking with someone, and say something like, " I read it at the fort" ,and they're like, "What fort" I have to then explain.

    My signature is what made me realize that I must be at the FORT a lot.

    ...because I keep a TV/VCR in my office (at work). The other Writers probably have different styles of approaching their recaps. I watch the program and tape it. The next day, I watch it again and take notes.

    The TV/VCR belongs to my department and sat in the executive assistant's office. She conducts "legal training" for new employees, which basically means she shows them a videotape asking them not to show up at work drunk, not to gamble at work, etc. etc.

    Since she hasn't had to conduct training in a while, I simply moved the TV/VCR into my office so that I can watch my tapes, take notes and write my recaps.

    At first, my co-workers would come into my office, be a little shocked at the big TV on my small desk, and ask why I had it in my office.

    "Well, on my lunch break, I like watching some sports and some news."

    Now, they've stopped asking altogether. I think the guy in the adjoining office knows what I'm doing because (a) he knows I'm a writer at the FoRT and has looked at the site and (b) it's kind of hard to miss the theme song from The Contender spilling out of the office next door to yours.

    Oh, and J. even knows all about the Fort and recognizes the names of people I talk about. "[So-and-so] wished you a happy birthday," I told her yesterday.

    She smiled, said "That's very sweet," and went back to her business, without asking who it was or how I knew him/her.

    Finally, I've had Fort dreams, too. (See above.) I know you have. I'll talk about mine if you talk about yours.

    I watch shows (ex: American Idol) that would NEVER darken my TV screen, if I wasn't looking for another Forum to post under to extend my FORT visits.

    I also share FORT comments with my family and friends, but that has more to do with how very interesting the posters are here.
