    i cant be the only one that does this.

    have you ever been doing somethng in RL and you either blurt out something that you would only ever hear in UO or you have to bite your tounge to stiffle a laugh cause you all of a sudden think of a nice UO "insert UO'ism"

    i work on a ambulance.
    the other night i got a call for a broken leg.
    as i walked up to the poor girl she looked me in the eye and asked me to please help her, and my mind, which allways seems to be in smart ass mode, i really wanted to look her dead in the eye and say "gah, sorry, it says benny acts. IS ANYONE HERE IN FACTIONS THAT CAN HELP US WITH A HEAL HERE???"

    i cant be the only one that thinks of stuff like this, am i?

    i was driving down the road the other day and a young kid in a rice rocket went flying by me and i yelled out "SPEEEEEEEEED HAXXOR!!!!!!!!!!!"
    and of course got the strangest look from my wife.

    i went out to feed my dogs last week, one of which is a new pup, and im trying to get her to do some beginer learning or some tricks.
    so i was trying to get her to sit down and such.... and i caught myself saying "you are a nobel creature..... will you come with me......" i could even see the blue emote above my head!!!!!

    your in line waiting to pay for your x-mas gifts and you have the urge to drop an Armagedon spell on everyone so you can get to the front of the line.
    but then you think.... shoot, that will throw me back as well.
    oh well..... Vas Kal An Mani In Corp Hur Tym!!!!!

    ever get a paper cut and the as you suck on your finger you find yourself saying in your head "In Vas Mani"???

    ever see someone you dont like from accross a room and think to yourself "Cor Por..... COR POR!!!!!!"

    you ever been sitting in a meeting and think to yourself.... if only i had a smoke bomb i could pop that sucker and stealth out of here and they would be looking everywhere for me in there and i wouldnt even be in there anymore!

    you ever stop to help someone who has ditched out their car on the highway and think to yourself..... what we need here is a Greater Dragon, that sucker would pull this out with no problem.

    *sigh*

    you ever look at someone that you just met and they really.... REALLY have no idea what is going on.

    and then you kinda tilt your head and look at them and you can swear you can allmost see the (young) above their head?

    anyone?

    anyone ever get that?

  14. When I was in the military a buddy of mine played UO also. One night we went to the bar and I got wasted and he had to carry me out to the car. Now, I dont remember this but, he told me not to throw up inside the car and I proceded to tell him that the only reason I was sick was because I ate one of those moonstones. To this day the gives me hell about it.

    O.k. I'll add mine...lol....

    ...Back during the Halloween event when the large pumpkins had just appeared, I was having a VERY hard time finding the pumpkin with the little slit eyes. On my way to work after staying up WAY TOO late playing UO the night before, I looked in my neighbor's yard at her beautiful slit eyed pumpkin and thought, "HOW IN THE WORLD DID SHE GET A SLIT EYED....." before it hit me that this was RL and not UO.

    I have a few more but I think I'll leave before I look blonder than I already do!

    You find yourself telling your dog "all follow me" instead of come here.
    you open your wallet and think "i swore i had more gold than this"
    you wonder why you dont ever find any white pearls when you go out fishing.
    your shopping at your local store and think"maybe i should have went to Luna instead"
    your out jogging and get mad at yourself because you forgot your total refresh potions.
    ok,,thats all i can think of off the top of my head.

    I work as a chef, and I was unloading a particularly heavy shipment of beef the other day and caught myself thinking "uus mani...." glad I didn't say it...

    yesterday a friend asked me if I was going out that night, to which I replied, "Nah, just probably to siege or maybe hit Swoop"

    I have a co-worker who doesn't play UO, but actually says "LOL" while talking.

    It happened the other day and I just paused and said "Did you really just say LOL?" it sounded like "Lull" and she replied with "rofl"

    ....

    Shoot me.

    Went on a little road trip this weekend and in one town, two UOish streets. The first was Frostwood. The second was in a subdivision-in-progress..only one street so far, it's name was Haven. Without thinking, I said "Haven, ooh that's where the noobs will live". Lucky me, my old man plays the game too, otherwise I would've felt really stupid. As it was I felt only mildly stupid. rolleyes:

    Walked into the barn to do chores the other night in the pitch black. I have to walk about 20 feet through the ink to get to the light switch. I said out loud "In Lor please".

    You guys have me recall the old days (yah I know some of you are thinking, here he goes again)

    But it's short and sweet.

    The most magnitudinal human I have ever been in love with has told me my UO history that she "cancelled" in a dream, by sacrificing her avatar into our sun, with the blackrock gem she had swallowed. The dream was so intense and detailed that it took me months to figure out that she was talking about exactly that which people tend to forget about UO history. That feeling of community and mind organisation, balanced giving and receiving with a full archetypal spectrum.

    We must learn from our mistakes as a community if we are to be united again, in mind and soul. I think we are ready. I am currently repenting my sins... into passion.

    May the vision of Lord Brittish be fulfilled, may we have unity and honor, for the faith of both worlds is in the balance. Chaos will be our new money and it will be handed out with unconditional governance of firm yew folk land law.

    For only 4.99$ + taxes of course... ok no.

    I know !

    What I get are these four weasels at work that think they're king **** because they play on a PvP server on WoW, it's their lunch room topic every day. Ironically enough they don't respect anybody elses gaming opinions. One day I revealed that I play UO - a bit of a mistake. "UO only has x amount of subscribers, WoW has 10 million" but they couldn't come up with any substantial reason as to why the PvP in WoW is superior to UO.

    I had to be straight up honest and tell them how lucky they are that I don't play WoW because I'd badly humiliate their (lack of) PvP talent and they'd never hear the end of it. :D

    In around 2000 I was looking at houses to buy and I found one in Vesper, Oregon. My guildies and friends in UO had our houses around Vesper and it was the main city I hung out at. I thought...maybe this is a sign of a good house.

    So I drove out there...way way out in the sticks. The house was right next to a river bank. There was a bunch of negatives to it, but they had a stable at the school and I could have ridden my kids on horses to school.

    I decided it wasn't a game so I bought a house less in the sticks.

    Well, I have a different perspective on the whole UO/RL story. When we were working on UOKR at Redwood Shores, I was in a doctors office and remember telling some of the character guys over the cell phone that we needed to make sure that we get all the undead delivered on time, that the pixies needed cleaning up, and asked if someone would take a look at the dragon we got in yesterday. I got off the phone only to find everyone in the doctors office staring at me blankly.

    I just pointed at the phone and said "... work,work, work!"

    Since my whole family plays, it's not so embarassing for us. We drive down a street and one of us yells, "There is an 18x18 just like I was trying to build.", or "See that 18x18 out there, bet they could have placed a castle, even." My grandson has horses. I'm always thinking, "Use an ethie instead, don't have to buy food."

    This is a great thread, I relate to so much of it. Does anyone else stand very still when waiting for the automatic teller machines to spit out the money because if you move, the bank box closes? *blushes slightly*

    Also, way way back in late 2000 I was training fletching, and I'd been up half the night until I ran out of wood (GMed 4th January 2001, is it really sad I can still remember that?) On the way to work I drove past a forestry site which had a sign up "logs for sale", and I turned in meaning to restock to carry on fletching .... fortunately I realised what I'd done and pretended I was just turning round ....

    GrimmOmen that reminds me of a time with my sister in law, our whole family also played.
    We were in a Dr office and we lived in a very small town. This was back in 1998-99
    we would be up at times hours or days it seems. It was our lives and our kids lives. And is still so to this day.

    But anyway.
    Kizmet and myself, Ashlen were at the dr office and we were discussing the night be fore’s events in Deciet
    where we had been pk'ed by this group called SUN and we were pissed going into details
    "he chased me down into lvl 2 and he killed me and took my best silver mace of vanq. ect...."
    " then I got trapped by the Liches and when you got me rezed back up I was trying to get back to my body
    and that prick got me again....ect"

    You know the type of things we were saying everyone has had those conversation with someone they played with.
    And like you, we were so into what we were talking about because it was our lives back then we were paying no
    attention to anyone around us. Then we looked up and everyone in there was looking at us like we were the
    Undead or some monster they had never seen before.
    Kizmet and I just shut our mouths and started giggling but when we got into the private room in the back we busted out laughing.
    Because those people out in the waiting room they all knew us and thought we were out of our mind.

    Oh those days were fun, Kizmet is gone from this world and our pixel world as well, she died at 42 after dental surgery.
    My nephew is still a very active player and keeps his moms memory alive and well in Britianna.

    My son and I were on a bus. It was dead silence, when all of a sudden he blurted out, "I killed a demon paragon!" and we were off to the races. It took a few minutes to realize people were actually shrinking back from us. It killed us. Now we do it on purpose.

    I even wrote a story about a dear little woman for whom the line between RL and Ultima has not just blurred; it's disappeared altogether. It's a little dark, as you might imagine. It's called "An Evening With Bonecrusher".
     
  47. agreed! It would be nice to have it right at the top of the page so we can add to it or find it easily when we need a good laugh.

    I dont usually post to these kinds of threads, but this is such good timing with something that happened to me last weekend that I figured what the heck!

    Ok, so I live in an apartment complex and we all take our garbage to a central huge compactor unit and drop our rubbish in. Well, often when people are moving out or in, they leave all kinds of stuff around the compactor that wont fit inside.

    Things like couches, lamps, vacuums, etc...
    I have been known to do my share of "dumpster diving", i.e., grab some decent looking "item" that someone else is throwing away. I scored a nice couch and a great vacuum that way.

    Well, the other night I was driving by the compactor and saw a crowd of people. I looked closer and saw that 2 guys were carrying away a big screen TV!!! Well, I jumped out of my car and ran to the area. People were milling around poking through lots of boxes, appliances, and furniture that was lying around. I immediately started grabbing everything I could and dragging it back to my car. My adrenaline was pumping, and I was sweating from all the nervousness and activity. I came away with 6 boxes of stuff, some nice lamps, a computer desk, and a huge mirror.

    As I was driving away and back to my apartment to unload the stuff, I was thinking about what to keep and what to sell. Suddenly, I realized I was acting the exact same way I do when I camp/loot an idoc!

    Back sometime around 99-01, I can't remember what we'd been after, I think it was either food or gaming related, but on the way home from this out of the way place my friend Troy (who got me into UO in high-school) looks at me and says "Dude, that place was great. We should've marked a rune."

    It took about twenty seconds to set in what had just been said.
