You know you're a figure skater when...
-All you think about is skating
-All you want to do is skate
-You have more foot relief things than shoes
-You have more skating costumes than clothes
-You have a job to sustain your skating habits
-You go on ebay and look at "ice skates" or "figure skating costumes"
-You watch ESPN for the figure skating
- you talk to your coach on MSN/IM
- You skate so much that you don't know what a social life is - can you find one at the rink?
- Your feet always hurt and you laugh when your friends say "my feet hurt, my shoes are so stupid!"

If anyone can add any others, please do!

-You go to a dance with your skating partner and do lifts to rap music (oh yeah....you're cool!)
-You cant listen to a piece of music (even if its rap) without immediately thinking of how you would skate to it.
-When a friend tells you "oh he got a mohawk" you think shes talking about the skating move and not the hair style.
-You've dreamt of driving the zamboni
-The rink people took pity on you and actually let you take the zamboni on a joy ride.
-Watching public skaters walk on cement with their blades makes you want to scream.
-You think you're just the coolest person ever screaming synchro team cheers at the top of your lungs at a Mcdonalds on the way to Lake Placid.
-You've gotten used to the wierd looks when you go into the supermarket in a skating dress and tights...but you still wear your club jacket with the huge "____ Skating Club" written on the back, just in case anyone wonders.
-Counting the number of holes in your tights becomes a competitive sport.
-Counting the number of holes/bruises on your legs becomes an even more competitive sport.
-You go trick-or-treating around the ice rink because "practice isnt cancelled for halloween"
-You and your friend can polish off a whole bag of chinese food in between sessions because you have been skating for two hours already and are STARVING!
-You have supersupersupersuper ultra hair spray and have developed an allergy from using it so much.
-Your parents have taken the red-eye flight across the country to see you skate without missing work.
-You have so many skating ornaments on your christmas tree (because thats what EVERYONE gives you...except other skaters, who know that you probably have a ton) that the tree falls over under the weight
-Your first thought upon falling is, "well at least I dont have to ICE it"
-Your partner cracks a funny joke while youre waiting for the music to begin at a competition just to make you smile...but then you cant stop laughing and have to skate the whole program trying not to crack up in front of the judges.
-You think falling 8093475928357927365918374912387651983571935 times in one practice is a GOOD day
-You fall really hard at a huge competition (not a GOOD day)but get up and finish with a smile even though youre crying.
-Youre parents and coach give you a hug anyway and tell you that you did your best and theyre proud of you... and that suddenly makes it all ok.
OK...enough of that...time for bed

- You try to drag your younger siblings to skating, and tell them to get up when they fall
- You never cry when you fall on land, because concrete is so much softer than ice
- You can't wear mini skirts becuse you have cuts and blisters all over your legs from falling on the ice
- You spend your free time sewing beads on costumes to save money
- You spend all your time on skating websites under the cover of "checking emails"
- Your non skating friends don't understand how you can want to hang out at a dingey old rink for hours a week, and when you try to explain, they interrupt with "but, it's so gross"
- The rink owners know you by name, and if you go to a public session, they let you go on a little early so that you can have the ice to yourself
- You've tried so many times to get a job in the rink canteen, just so you can spend time aroudn the skaters - but they wont give it to you because they know that you're going to actually USE all the free ice time!

- your parents tell you off because you jump and spin so much in the living room that you make them dizzy and create a draft when they're trying to watch TV.

lol twinkle toes 84.
- You can't help but help people ask you about your skating during the public sessions.
- You try to get kids involved in figure skating and just walk up to random children and say "hey, are you interested in figure skating"
- You coach your little sisiters/brothers until they're so embarrased they want to melt into the ice ("come on, faster, yes, toe pick in and push! No, do it again, come on you want to get good don't you!!!")
- All you dreams involve the zamboni or skating
- You hate hockey skaters because htey are so ungraceful!
- You eat 2 out of 3 meals at the ice rink.

-you had 5 am practice in the mornings and the rink manager kept coming late so you wouldnt get on the ice until 5:30...your coach, who can be ultra scary when she's mad...especially in the am....flipped out so much that she managed to turn the heavily tatooed, big macho rink guy into a bumbling mass of apology and eventually got him to give her his home phone number and a promise that should this EVER happen again, he will give you both a key.
-you felt bad for the big, tatooed rink guy...you know EXACTLY what its like to get that wrath.
-You once brought two skates to a MITF test session...one from your dance skates, one from your freestyle skates....your coach was , um, less than happy (as well she should be) and made you skate anyway...you didnt pass (and one judge asked if you were feeling ok) but now you and your coach laugh about it...and so does the entire skating club.
-your coach broke both wrists and had both arms in casts. The only thing she was worried about was the fact that she couldnt use the coffee maker.
-all the other coaches flinched in sympathy and horror when she told them she couldnt make coffee.
-you actually understood that, yes the world may come to an end without coffee.
