I was wondering if we had any examples of Extreme love for
the Bond films.

e.g. You know you're a Bond fan when......
You put off going to work because a bond film is being shown for the first time.

A long time ago when I was a teen working in a Bar I did Pull a sickie as LALD was being
shown on TV for the first Time.

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

    - Any spare money gets spent on items like china dogs

    - The garage is no longer used to store a vehicle, but has been converted into your own Bond den/museum/Q Branch

    - Your phone number ends in '007'

    - You watch a Bond film you don't look for the plot, scenery or glamourously sexy ladies, but immediately try working out how that shot was done, how that prop was made or where you could get that coat/tie/shirt/budgie smuggler.

    - You wear an omega or Rolex but if you were honest you'd admit you couldn't really afford it but what the hell, you can't take it with ya.

    - You pine after an Aston but know unless the lotto comes up you ain't ever gonna own one.

    - You own an Aston.

    - You called your kid 'James', 'Miles' or 'Honey'.

    - You think only AJB, YouTube and checking email is all that the Internet is good for.

    - You dedicate your career to the ambition of being somehow professionally involved with a group of people who called themselves 'EoN'.

    - You buy the Bond soundtrack cd or DVD/Bluray boxset every time it comes out with the latest film/track in it, even though you've already got the previous 5 issues.

    - You buy 'spare' DVD/Bluray/cd's just in case you wear any out.

    - You refuse yourself and anyone else to touch with bare hands that Golden gun you bought.

    - You order a vesper or a martini in a bar even though you know your friends, the barman and everyone else in the pub thinks you're a bit of a ****.

    - You spend £50 on a crew t shirt even though you know you'll not wear it through fear of damaging it or someone asking something about the film as the mistake you for a genuine crew member.

    - You're email from Amazon recommending some prospective purchases shows nothing but Bond related products.

    - You own a copy of 'Birds of the West Indies'.

    - You did something like propose or get married on a Bond related date, like 26/10/2012

    - You're known as 'the short fat git who worked on that crap Bond film with Pierce Brosnan in it'.

    I think many of us have similar experiences. -{
    I especially love "You buy the Bond soundtrack cd or DVD/Bluray boxset every time it comes out with the latest film/track in it, even though you've already got the previous 5 issues."
    Many a small Martial dispute has occured over the "WHY, did you buy these, You've already got them "
    Pointing out that these covers are ever so slightly different, doesn't seem to cut any Ice. :D

    I saw this and laughed, but read as follows:


    - Your previous phone number (Still used as an emergency backup when required) ends in '004'

    - You watch a Bond film you don't look for the plot, scenery or glamorously sexy ladies, but immediately try working out how that shot was done. Or how that prop was made. Or where you could get that tablet, camera, laptop , or style of suit/tie/shirt/cufflinks/shoes/jeans/jacket/scarf/gloves/hat/glasses at a sensible price!

    - You wear an Casio Quartz with superficial similarities to an omega or Rolex and a bright internal LED capacity, but if you are honest you think your watch is slightly cooler as its a bit battered from use, prob like Bond's! (Plus it was a lot cheaper!)

    - You drool over every Aston you see with your own eyes like a school kid, but know unless you pass your 11th driving test, you ain't ever gonna get one of those driving experiences to try one.

    - You own a radio Controlled Casino Royale Aston DBS.

    - One of your best Christmas presents was the box set of ALL the films a mate gave you.

    - You refuse yourself and anyone else to touch with bare hands that large Thunderbird 2 model you were given and constructed.

    - You order a Scotch even though you know your friends, the barman and everyone else in the pub thinks its partially because you are both Scottish and a Bond fan. (Cheers!)

    - You're emails from Ebay recommend some prospective purchases show nothing but Bond, Star Trek, classic suits or Gadget related products.

    - You're known as 'the short fat bearded scottish madman' who loves the Bond films and Star Trek and knows a little too much about the latter for piece of mind!


    My own additional entires:

    - You go to almost painstaking lengths to try to get a budgeted replica of the CR-06 style Dinner suit Daniel Craig wore, even knowing you look nothing like him, but appreciate the style.

    - You download specific types of App to your smartphone as they have cool Q -Branch like qualities. (Digital scanner, bar code reader etc.).

    - You refuse to see Skyfall at the cinema only twice, because you tried QoS twice and hated it. (I finished CR-06 with 6 viewings).

    - You own several of Ian Flemings books, books about Bond, or both!

    - Every time you see a DB5 in one of the Bond films, it reminds you of late, much loved and missed family members and a fantastic secret they shared with you, connected directly to the early Bond films. :007)
    This is Thunderbird 2, how can I be of assistance?

    You sometimes try to catch a Bond movie when it's on telly now and then, even though you've seen it before and you know what happens.

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

    -You buy the Special Edition DVD's while you already have the Ultimate Editions just so you can learn some more Italian by listening to the Italian audiotrack.

    -You find at least 5 mistakes in every "Bond special" of every magazine that is out there.

    -You wear a medium sized sunspel polo because Craig did it too, while being morbidly obese

    -When having a glass of wine with your girlfriend you either make it 'a loving cup' or toast 'to this moment and the moments yet to come'

    When either browsing / shopping for clothes or even when pulling clothes out of the wardrobe, your first thought is "would Bond wear this?"
    When driving whatever heap of a car you may (or may not) own, you dearly wish that the gear lever knob could flip up to enable you to push that button ... especially when your other half is nagging away at you for no reason whatsoever - for the umpteenth time in the day.
    You re-set your padlock code for using on your gym locker to 007.

    When you look at the line of DVD's deciding which one to watch and think "Hmm I've watched that one really recently" for every single one and then think "May as well watch them all again then".
    Now, they only eat rat.

    A non fan brings up George and OHMSS with the usual 'what about the rubbish guy who only did one' and you will defend the film and the real reason he only did one film to the earth even though you know full well they will never believe the film isn't cr*p and Lazenby wasn't sacked!

    You use Bond quotes in everyday conversation. "You wouldn't fire me you'd miss me."
    "I never miss."
    "Blondes or brunettes?"
    Shrugs. "As long as the collars and cuffs match."

    You go back to see skyfall again just so you can check those trousers/shirt/tie/glasses/bulldog you bought the other day are the right ones.

    - Buying a bloody china dog.... (but so glad I did)

    - Boyfriend being dubbed 'James Bond' by my friends :))

    - Friends updating my Facebook page with their view on Skyfall... All good!

    - Buying stupid amounts of magazines which I never usually read, just because of 1 article...

    - Buying the Daily Mail Sunday paper - just for the suppliment

    - stop biting my nails, just so I can buy the opi nail varnish featured in Skyfall!

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

    1. I once entered a Bond competition on local radio
    without even knowing what the prize was just because
    I knew the answers to the questions. I won. A day out
    at a motor racing event. Bored me to tears and I left early.

    2. I was bitterly disappointed that both of my children are
    girls so unable to call either of them James.

    Are their names Loelia (Ponsonby) and Mary (Goodnight)? Or even Gala, Honey ... plenty to choose from :P
