Diary of a Wizard (a now closed fansite) has a wonderful post from Postcards from the Spiral about the Top 10 Ways You Know You’ve Been Playing Too Much Wizard101

TOP TEN WAYS YOU KNOW YOU’VE BEEN PLAYING TOO MUCH WIZARD101
(As if there IS such a thing!)
10. You’ve convinced your child/parent/significant other to create their own account so that you can battle together.
9. You’ve purchased a new computer so that people in your house can play together or play online at the same time.
8. You’ve set up a wireless network, after procrastinating for at least five years, so that people in your house can play at the same time.
7. When driving or riding in a car, you keep looking at the dashboard for a yellow arrow to tell you which direction to go and how many more steps until you get there.
6. When you reply to a text message sent to your phone, you press the “r” key and don’t understand why you don’t immediately see a text box.
5. You’re on a first-name basis with the employees at your neighborhood 7-11 (or wherever you buy Wizard 101 gift cards).
4. The employees know the name of at least one of your wizards, and ask you which wizard will get the pet from this particular gift card.
3. You’ve had a dream about leveling up.
2. You’ve had a dream about Merle Ambrose summoning you to his office (bonus points if he does NOT have a yellow exclamation point over his head).
1. You’ve had a dream about Wizard 101 announcing a seventh chair will be available in each player’s classroom, and you rushed to your computer the next morning to finally start a wizard from the seventh school on your account.

The only one I would add would be you see a stick on the ground and think -ooh! Mistwood!

Thank you both for the article and we encourage our players to list their own below!
I think I have done all of those 0-0

When you call your friends tabby cat a fire cat

Or when you you get called down to the office of your school and expect to get a quest.

And you argue with your geography teacher that Egypt is actually Krokotopia.

Oh my gosh XD I've done that before! During this cold winter, my mom pointed out that I mumbled "GreyRose, do you MIND?!" In the car. And when I jumped at thunder I said, "Balestrom, grrr". And when we had a fire drill at my house I went "OMG Get Falmea!"... everyone stared heh heh heh.

Anyway, here are mine:
10. When you see a guy dressed in black and long black hair you have a spaz attack and inch away.
9. You do what I mentioned above frequently (XD)
8. Instead of yelling Darn or Dang you yell "FIZZLE!"
7. When someone ticks you off you imagine a Cyclops smashing them over the top of the head.(I do this a lot XD)
6. You walk up to every single bald person and snap, "What's your problem?!"
5. You feel for your wand when your mad.(Yep...)
4. Your scared of the dark because you think a Wraith will grab you.(Diddo)
3. Everytime you see an elephant you yell, "BRING IT ON!"(Onis)
2. You attempt to buy clothes that are the colors of your school of focus.(I'm guilty)
1. When you get hurt and someone runs up with a band-aid and helps you up you say, "Omg Sylvia?!"(I seriously did this XD)

Sincerely,
Sestiva Drake ~ Grandmaster Theurgist
Victoria DeathGrove (Drake) ~ Magus Necromancer
Tavia Drake ~ Apprentice Conjurer and Cyrus's most hated student. Rawr to you too Cyrus!
I swear I've done 10 and 4 before lol

Hmm, guilty as charged to a few of these.

Here's mine:
5. "Accidentally" watching dungeon let's plays of azteca/khrysalis for 3+ hours and explaining to your family 'If you can't play it, watch it!'
4. Ticking off your parents because all you spend your money on is game cards, crowns, and subscriptions.
3. 'I can't right now, doing a super-hard dungeon' becomes a daily excuse.
2. Your mom tells you to find something and you expect a yellow arrow to appear; pointing you in the right direction.
1. Begging your friends to join because nobody that you know plays the game and you're stuck on that /one/ dungeon..daily.

Hope some of you guys can relate..?

Sometimes i'll be humming the grizzleheim music, log onto wizard101, go to grizzleheim, and find out i'm humming the song. it's like, wow, i think i got the wizard101 fever instead of gold fever.
