9. *When I see Tye Dye I think "wouldn't that look good on a jem?"
8. *mmmmmm swirls......
7. *I watch shows on Egyptian Pyramids and say "golly, where have I seen those before?"
6. *I scold my pets by saying "Bad Horsie!"
5. *My beer has a plain white lable.
4. *Any gas with less than 10% Ethanol is too expensive.
3. *I advocate "Hot Pink" as a manly color.
2. *Clinton got a few nice "Jems" from Monica....

And the number one reason "I know I'm addicted to Jems"........

#9-Considering a second job to support the habit.

#4-You know the names of the people at the Ibanez factory.
#3-You insist on telling yourself that wearing a Jemfest-2K T-shirt to the office is a contemporary fashion statement.

#3 Have been through 24 Jem/UV machines, one to the next and each one inspires new inspirations with life and music. Any other Guitar I find very boring...

#2 Have cutt out all the Jem/UV's out of hundreds of Ibanez catalogs, have over 1000 pictures of them.

#1 Have over 170 Cassettes condenced from over 600 of them from 13 years of Original music material, thousands of songs ideas/emotions, and can name what Jem or UV was used on every tune within a few seconds, and all the details with that Guitar.

I think Ive been more Addicted to the music over Jem or UV machines, the Jem and Universe guitars are just one of the elements that help me get the creative Voices of the Soul out into the Airwaves.

#8 You have a matching everything for your jem, strap, amp covering, shirt, strings, whatever.

In no particular order:

- You made this list in the first place
- Favorite drink, Root Beer
- Car must be a GMC, doesn't matter which one
- Gone to Loch Ness just to see if it really is that color
- You know you have other guitars, you just can't remember where they are.
- Been to the desert on a Bad Horsie with no name, to see if it really is that color
- You've convinced yourself that sk really is quite a nice color
- You've considered getting curtains in that FP fabric
- 99% of ebay searches are for 'ibanez'
- Other 1% are for 'vai'
- You think 'Damn, I'm stylin' in this Jemfest 2k shirt'
- You think UV protection is a guitar case
- You think Gemologists are the people who design new Jems

5. *You know Kevan priced his JEM 10 that high because he * really doesn't want to sell it!!

Christopher, about #5, remind me not to buy any JEMs from you, they are marked**.

**If you don't get this you haven't seen the Seinfeld where George is in a bookstore and takes a book into the bathroom with him.

Here's my list:

10) *You don't notice the other guitars when you're playing it (for fear of offending it)
9) *You send it valentines day gifts.
You're typing this in computer class (Sorry Mr. Lyle! lol)
7) You feel this warm feeling inside just thinking about it.
6) You consider naming your children "Steve", "Evo", "Flo", etc.
5) You consider the funny looks flattering.
4) You give not so flattering looks to LP/Strat fans.
3) You would donate your more valuable parts to science just to get one.
2) You would make a deal with the Devil to get your hands on a JEM7*insert your name here*
1) You come to Jemsite everytime your near a computer with Internet access (again, sorry Mr. Lyle! lol) and name the guiars.

That's mine. *Hope u like it! lol

Oh, and add:

Will not accept any heart shaped valentines gifts of any kind without the appropriate tiny guitar hardware being added acurately and delivering in a replica (also tiny) case.

(Haven't done this one, but considering it. lol)

OK, I did this once but hit the goddamn reset button by accident so here we go again.
#10. You play a gig, have the whole bar blown away, chicks all over you, and you still wake up with an SK.
#9. You posted in the "what does JEM stand for" forum
#8. When you see the lucky charms commercial, you think it should be, pink SK's, Blue Florals, Yellow DY's and Purple multicolours.
#7. The family wants to go to Disneyworld this year and you agree, due to a hidden agenda.
#6. You want to be Rich, not rich (aauuuggghhhh)
#5. When you think of the worlds most precious Gems, you think, 90Ham, DNA, and 10 anniversary.
#4. You have vines all over the house, but no garden
#3. When you hear about Jem and the Holograms, you get pissed off because they all had Jackson look-a-likes.
#2. You repaint a brand new car to match a 777DY (speaking from personal experience here)

The number one way you know you're addicted to JEM's

#1. *You are in your room with Jems all along the wall, with the hottest, sexiest girl you've ever seen involved in the hottest, sexiest moment you've ever had when you utter the words, "you are the sexiest creature I've ever seen". *She is flattered, until she sees your eyes fixed on the wall.

Other possible ones,
When you hear all the colours of the rainbow, you immediatly think, ATD
You have more pictures of Jem's around than you do of all 6 of your weddings, (Jem related failures)
