    You know you love TNG when...

    It inspires you to write poetry combined with Fan Art!

    To me, TNG is like that moment in the movie CONTACT when Ellie Arroway, witnessing a celestial light show up close, declares ...

    "No - no words. No words to describe it. Poetry! They should've sent a poet. So beautiful. So beautiful..."

    @ 2takesfrakes : I love what you wrote, it's beautiful ! TNG feels definitely like home, like friendship, like some sort if surreal heaven....
    I love that show and its characters to pieces :bolian:

    ....you know you love TNG when you write such things ^^

    Your kind words are greatly appreciated, TauCygna.

    TNG & You -- Perfect Together. That's what I always say!

    Before that you have started to drink Earl Grey because that's what Picard drinks.
    Before you ask, yes, I have tried it... because Picard always drinks it.

    I sometimes think about trying the violin because of Data (though I know this is terribly hard to play), so I guess we're a bunch of people here in the same situation XD
    Social mimetism XD

    I come from the city where the eponymous Earl Grey made his first smoked tea leaf brew, so if I'm being a dick I can claim I was guzzling that stuff way before I'd ever seen TNG.

    You know you love TNG, when you can't even go to a comedy club and not be reminded of an episode, like this ...

    OMFG yeeeessss !! :guffaw::biggrin::hugegrin:
    Honestly, I laughed so hard at Data's jokes in that episode ! Just the fact he was trying the best he could made my day ! :D

    ...Well, we can say you know love TNG when people wink at you and make private jokes about your favourite character :D
    (Maybe I should change my username for CrazyDataLady :guffaw:)

    In you, Sir, I find a kindred spirit who loves TNG ... as much as I.

    I guess I'm a little bit fortunate because I have been playing guitar since the 90s, not a violin but a string instrument. :)

    You are in the lead, unless someone with close family ties to the inventor of the tea in question comes along, you win. :)

    @JesterFace : the only string instrument I ever played was piano and it was...hard. I mean, like, freaking HARD ! :crazy:
    I could barely play Au clair de la Lune (which is supposed to be a very easy tune)...

    Anyway, you know you love TNG when you burst into laughter after you heard a TV ad for a brand of freezed food called...
    ...Picard :guffaw:
    Especially since the ad motto was : "A new taste everyday with Picard" :guffaw::lol::D
    I'm sure Beverly would love it...:devil:

    You know you really love TNG...

    ...when it's the only thing that helps you smile in hard times. I've been so stressed and worried for days, and watching TNG is the only activity that makes me feel better...My blu-ray collection is the perfect anxiolytic.

    Just noticed in The Perfect Mate:

    Geordi, to the Ferengi: "Have you seen the dolphins yet?"

    Never caught that before. Maybe the one line in the series that confirms a much reported thing about the ship.

    ...you'll defend numerous season 1 episodes or find perspectives than the more popular ones that preemptively preoccupy. Even for the genuinely bad stories.

    You wish you were a Trek character aboard the Entreprise rather than being yourself. No matter if it's a forever feeling or a temporary feeling. Right now I wish I was.

    When you no longer use contractions to sound like Data.
    When you see four lights when there are five.
    When you want some mint frosting on your cake.
    When you say "de-evolve" instead of "devolve".
    When Picard and his brother at La Barre, their heads muddy.
    When you keep calling your cafeteria, "Ten Forward".
