You know you're a Rush fan when.....

You think that all Rush lyrics were written specifically about you - even "Rivendell".

You fly to Toronto several times a year just to get more luggage tags.


They also call you the working man.

You quote lyrics as words of wisdom to your friends in e-mails and you can't wait to press the button to send them amazing things.

You also have chosen free will.

You can play the drum, bass, and guitar parts to "YYZ" - on the harmonica!

You named your dogs By-tor and Cinderella Man.

You know people who are drummers, just like that guy in Rush.

You are, in fact, Alex Lifeson.

For breakfast this morning, you had honeydew and the Milk of Paradise.

Tonight you're going to party like it's 2112.

You went to Space Camp in the hopes that it would qualify you to become an astronaut so you could journey to the black hole of Cygnus X-1, but Space Camp turned out to be kind of lame, and you hated the food.

Your refrigerator is decked out with Rush things.

You have taken to dressing like Neil Peart a la A Farewell to Kings, no matter what the hoi polloi say about your mustache and boots.

You modified your gleaming alloy aircar so that it is now two lanes wide.

You thought Gene Kelly's portrayal of Kubla Khan in Xanadu was really subpar, and that was no pleasure dome - it was a roller rink!

You're standing on top of an RV in the reserved RV section at the Daytona 500 cranking up "Red Barchetta" on your headphones and substituting certain words that fit perfectly.

You dance on the strings of powers you cannot conceive.

You have written the word "Rush" on your algebra notebook several times in different styles.

You wish someone would say "Gentlemen, Fire up the willing engines" at a NASCAR race.*

You keep all your friends equal by hatchet, axe...and saw!

LMAOOOOOO!!!!  ;D

Grrrl

You can't be a real country unless you have a beer and an airline. It helps if you have some kind of a football team, or some nuclear weapons, but at the very least you need a beer.

You know you are a RUSH fan when you think they did ANYTHING worthwhile when in reality, the did not.

I guess I would have to say it's when you lose all respect in the world for anyone that suggests any drummer anywhere ever could even come close to being 3/4 as skilled as Peart.

You lie restless wondering how By-tor, after a humiliating defeat to the Snow Dog, returns to
humble the evil Necromancer?

You question if Alex has 3 eyes under that hat?

You believe "the most endangered species... is the honest man" and have used the line to woo women
for 24 years... with no end in sight!

I got a thing for Grrrl :)
