When your dad comes home, and your brother asks "Who's there?" and before you can stop yourself you yell, "FRENCH REVOLUTION!" :D

My dad apparently didn't notice, he didn't answer. But my brother looked at me with a glare to rival Enjolras'. Ah, the joys of being annoying. :D

When you're idly flipping through the TV channels, see the Disney movie 'Mulan' and then scream when you see 'singing voice of Lea Salonga'.

I am badly infected :D

1- One of my coaches refers to me as "les mis"

2- the other calls me "Grantaire"

3- so does my mother

4- I nearly faint when I see a word that vaguely reminds me of les mis

5- My friend calls me a "Misease"

6- To insult people, I have started calling them a bourgeois, and frequently use other Argot

7- To annoy me, people mock les mis,or call it "less Misérables (Misérables being pronounced as miserable is in English,but with an s on the end). Then I freak out and call them a bourgeois :D

8- I use les mis references in everyday conversations (ex: I recently said that I was more unlucky than Bossuet, to the great amusement of my friends)

9- My family now sings les mis, and are not thrilled with me because of this (why? it's beautiful music)

10- My favorite adjective is "Enjolraic" :D

I hope there's no treatment for B.A.R.R.I.C.A.D. :D

Today, to pass the time on the bus to university, I decided to learn the order of every West End Enjolras. That's one of those things that is never ever going to come in useful isn't it?

Only principals! Though I probably know most of the understudies since 2000 I'd guess, but not all.
I'm trying to decide whether I should include how many cast changes they played it through or not, because I was remembering some people that way (It's a little memory game, where I take a few at a time and figure out how to remember them, and I remember some of them by saying them three times for three years and some by relating it to the person next to them even if they were there for two each). But still, I think I've got it, the only one I struggle with is the fact that Paul Manuel came back in 2002, which is weird because I *saw* him then. I didn't see half of these people, but one I did see is causing me the problem. I think that truly cements his status as the most forgettable Enjy ever!

I was going thru my playlists on my iPhone last night and I realized that I have almost all the versions of Red and Black and Do You Hear The People Sing downloaded. 8)

I always have this urge to correct people when they mangle the names of Feuilly, Gavroche, Courfeyrac, Combeferre----etc. And when I hear Enjolras called " that blonde dude." :shock:

That's gonna take up a lot of disk space, lol!

I have a playlist with exactly 482 individual recordings of Drink With Me on it and that alone takes up two and a half GB.

Oh my goodness, imagine if you added the DWMs from untracked versions to that :shock:

I guess I should have said all the major recordings and a few other recordings that are available thru iTunes.
My Les Mis playlists take up the majority of space on my iPhone though.

Every time you hear a Les Misérables song, you sing it. And continue to sing the entire rest of the musical from that point. :lol:

You are wearing out your DVD of it.

You have a LM shirt, and wear it almost every week.

You have all the songs memorized by heart.

You have sung On My Own while walking in the pouring rain.

You have been in scenarios where you were Cosette, or Éponine. And then the other. :cry:

Almost all of your friends LOVE it! :D

Your parents wonder how your tongue hasn't fallen off from singing it all the time. :lol:

You could rant forever about the characters.

You want to hit someone when they say it like this: Less (or Laaaays) Miserahb. *Seriously*

Your friends do that a LOT to annoy you to no end. ^

You dream about being with Les Amis, fighting, singing, not dying just yet. :oops:
Rory listen she's not dead. *Actually* she is dead. But its not the end of the world. Well it is the end of the world. Actually its the end of the universe.

Sweet surrender, what a night!

When you end up making terrible jokes in French class about Les Mis characters. No seriously, say 'Je vais à Javert' really really quickly. My friend also made up a song about Montparnasse which went along the lines of,
"Montparnasse, Montparnasse
He's got an awesome Montparn-arse
But don't let him stop ya
Or he'll garrotte ya
Montparnasse, Montparnasse!"
I'm the one to shout "Down with Polignac!"
