You Know You're Obsessed With the Outsiders When...
You laugh every time you drink a soft drink for reasons unknown to people around you.
You name your horse (Or any other pet) Ponyboy (or Ponygirl)
You've looked up Robert Frost poems before, just to read Nothing Gold Can Stay from a million different sources.
You've read Gone With the Wind, even though it's more than a thousand pages long, for no other reason except because it was mentioned in The Outsiders.
If you HAVE read Gone With the Wind, you get randomly excited and squeal at the page where it quotes exactly, "riding into sure death because they were gallant".
You've started wearing black leather jackets, old jeans, and white t-shirts a lot more than you usually do.
You've researched the 60s for fun, and you have asked questions concerning the 60s to your baffled history teacher.
You've tried slicking back your hair with hair gel/grease and squealed happily at the results.
You've bleached your hair just because Ponyboy did.
You've started caring about your hair a lot more than you did before.
You've stopped getting haircuts.
You've started using the words, "ain't", "golly", "gee", "dig", and other old slang words proudly, not paying attention to the weird stares you're getting from people around you.
You've read the book so many times you could quote entire pages from it.
You love your English teacher for getting you to read it.
You announce to your stunned parents that your new favorite cartoon character is Mickey Mouse.
You want to hit people when your teacher's showing the Outsiders movie, and they don't pay attention to it/laugh at it.
You rush up to every random person reading the book, squealing and babbling about how amazing the book is, and how much they're gonna love it so much. You say these thing to COMPLETE STRANGERS too.
You suddenly wish you had a southern accent, and you love people who actually do.
You've developed a sudden interest in old movies.
You do a double take each time someone says the word "Soda" or "Pony".
You laugh every time you drink Pepsi (Ponyboy's addiction) or Coke. (Dally/Cherry incident)
You write "Stay Gold" as the last line of every letter you write. (almost)
You've paused the movie at the very beginning when Ponyboy writes in his composition book, and tried to copy his handwriting.
You've wondered what it would be like the live as a Greaser in the 1960s. (I love The Outsiders)
How to Tell if You're a Writer
-If you talk to yourself.
-If you talk to yourself about talking to yourself (i.e. ‘I wonder why I talk to myself so much?’)
-If, when you talk to yourself, you sometimes speak as if talking to another person (i.e. ‘Okay, so have you ever noticed that the word ‘deliver’ could mean removing someone’s liver?’)
-If, after uttering a profound piece of wisdom like that above, you stare at the cookie in your hand in awe and say, ‘Wow, this is good stuff for sugar highs!’
-If you live off of sugar and caffeine.
-If people start to notice that you tend to check your e-mail every day for a week, then suddenly disappear off the face of the planet.
-If your e-mails tend to be pages long and incredibly random.
-If, when replying to someone else’s e-mail, you are sometimes so random that you fail to address the original message altogether.
-If you tend to collect the Bic Stics people leave lying around, kind of like picking pennies off the ground.
-If, no matter where you are in your room, you never have to so much as get up to reach a pen/pencil and paper.
-If people think you might have A.D.D.
-If you think it’d be cool to have A.D.D.
-If you start constantly talking in third person, present/past tense.
-If you think about making lists like this, and start giggling for no ‘apparent’ reason.
-If your friends don’t even bother to look funny at you anymore when you start giggling for no apparent reason.
