gozarutchi: Your parents must have been super mad! If mine caught me doing anything but sensibly putting the Tamas back in my suitcase, they would probably take them away for the entire vacation we were going on! But once, my brother had a ball full of blue liquid, and the airport people thought it was dangerous so they put it in a yellow bin for dangerous items, but my brother cried so they gave it back. It was not a dangerous item, I bet they were relieved when they got news that our flight had landed safely. :) But I recently took all my 21 Tamas in an aeroplane and the ariport people just dismissed them as childrens toys. Whew!

They were a little at first, but i do crazy stuff like that all the time so they got over it :)

More examples:
-Have a box wrapped of like a present including the fowling: AAA Batteries for ID L and Tamago, The round batteries(both sizes)For every other Tamagotchi, Ten different sizes of screw drivers, a bag of rice(in case the fall in the water). That you call your "Gift of Life" and carry it almost everywhere
-You start screaming at your tam because it called for you attention when it needed nothing, and then you start crying when you put it in a time out, and then you have a big long talk to you tam about how you only did it "Because I Love You"
-When they get married you dress up and stage all you stuffed animals and tamas in a position like a wedding, with your tamagotchi at the alter, and you preform a ceremony and then start to cry uncontrollably.
-If someone on the street took your tamagochi, you would follow them to another country with a knife screaming bloody murder, and when you catch them you give them a warning, then you just stab them and take the Tamagotchi and start kissing it uncontrollably(I've never done this but i would).
I do all of these(Except the last one). all my friend are scared to go in my room because thats were i keep my tamas(My friends call them Erika's TAMA GODS :P . they think touching them will make them cursed forever.

Okay. I do NOT do that. If I did one of those things, if I cried about Tamas, my parents would literally kill me. More like, kill my Tamas. Literally. If they ever caught me kissing or talking to a Tama, they would...I don't know. It depends on what I was actually doing, and what the circumstances were. If I was kissing my Tamagotchi in the middle of a city (or airport ;) ) and people were staring at me, I'd be banned from Tamas for life. However, if I said "good night" to them quietly in my room, my parents wouldn't really get mad. I've never got caught doing anything I "shouldn't be" with Tamas, but I probably will, some day. Let's just hope it's not something "bad".

I've come really close to doing these things, but I always freaked out about getting caught right as soon as I was going to do it. I dislike putting my Tamas in time out, and I've almost screamed at them sometimes. I do stuffed toy marriage ceremonies more than Tama ones, but I've come pretty close when I got my Tama married at the beach and almost cried. And the last one, my parents would definitely NOT let me do that. And anyway, don't you keep your Tamas really protected so no-one can take them? So do I.

Anyway, some examples:

When you get really really mad at yourself and punch yourself a thousand times in bed because you used to torture and kill Tamas (that's me :( )
When you ALSO get really mad at yourself for breaking/debugging X Tama (that's me too :( )
And you ALSO get really mad at yourself because you never cry about Tamas (my worst fault. I used to be proud of it, but if your pet dies, you cry. And a Tama doesn't qualify as a pet if you don't cry about it)
When you get teased at school and still continue to play Tamas
When, if you never cry about Tamas, you ALMOST do
If you were at the airport, and you did a quick suitcase check and you found your favourite Tama was dead, would you:
a. Scream and cry etc.
b. Get upset but not really show it
c. Distract yourself and deal with it later
d. Not really mind very much
e. Not care at all
When you answer A in the above question. (That exact thing happened to me about a year ago. I did B - get upset but not really show it. It was my favourite Tama, after all)
When you collect Tamas
When you want every new Tama release

That's true. Last night I asked my mom what she would do if I often got upset about Tamas dying: She'd have a "serious talk" with me about whether it was a "good idea" to have them. I mean, of course it is a good idea! Like scary stuff is in the spirit of Halloween, getting sad about Tamas dying is in the spirit of Tamas. After all, my mom says it's okay to get upset about real pets dying and it's just part of having pets, but that doesn't apply with Tamas?! Whatever. Now I know to continue never crying about Tamas. :(

I can't think of any stuff today...it's all been said already...

When you have a small basket with a ton of cotton balls in it for your Tamagotchi to sleep in that is in a protected place and you get super mad if anyone DARES to intrude in that place. (Guilty.)

Or when you go to the Tamagotchi Memorial and read through some of the topics and get extremely sad because of all the dead Tamas.

I talk to my Tamagotchi very often. My parents see no fault in it (thankfully). I have never cried about a Tamagotchi dieing, but I usually don't cry about anything anyways. :rolleyes:

you talk to each tama even if the battery is dead, every night you must say goodnight and apologize for any that you missed
perfect characters are always on-screen, even if it must be secretly they are always with you. you nearly cry if your tama dies, and get sad if its the battery.

And wherever you go you have a "first aid kit" for tamas, (ie. extra batteries, screwdriver that is small enough to open back panel/press reset button, a plastic bag, a cleaning cloth, a few extra hair bands (I put my Tamas on hairbands then put them on my wrist)

When you make sure that your tama/s are by your side at ALL times.
When you get all fustrated about them if you realize you don't have them with you, and then you stat to think they have died.
When you keep wanting to start up more tamas, but you can't because you know you won't be able to handle them all.
When you talk to them and get all happy for them if they go to the toilet or win a game.

I just thought of these now hehe.

I know I'm obsessed, because I use my tamagotchi more then my phone or clocks to check time
I'll waste time on a test making sure my tama goes to school
put them very close to my face when I take naps in case they beep for me
I write in my journals about the cool/cute things they did, or they're accomplishments
I talk to my friends baout them, even though they COULD NOT care less
I try to convince people to buy their own to reignite the tama craze O.O

EDIT: OOPS! Wrong topic. Can an admin move this for me please??

When you put a thumb-tack on the wall above/next to your head where you sleep so you can keep an eye on it
When you obsess over things in craft stores because it would be perfect to decorate your tamagotchi
When you design new tama characters and give them names and descriptions in hopes that one day Bandai will test out user-submitted characters
Design entirely new Tamagotchi versions and designs on paper, in hopes of ^
Buy a TON of food from the shops to match them up with the meals or snacks you're eating. (Hamburger, fish, omelette, pear, grapes, juice)
Make an army of Tama characters out of polymer clay
Your parents roll their eyes every time you get on a Tamagotchi rant
You're sick and stay home from school, and instead of watching TV or playing video games, you rack up Gpoints on your Tama
You've donated over 20,000 gotchi points to the King so far
You flip out every time your Tamagotchi evolves
When you misplace your Tama, you turn the house upside down to find it, then realize it's been with you the whole time
When your parents tell you to shut off your Tama at the dinner table, you just mute it and play it under the table between bites ^w^
Your heart starts pounding when someone replies to your TamaTalk post
You count your money when a new Tamagotchi version comes out
You put your tama in multiple ziploc bags so you can take it into the pool/shower/bath
You rubberband your Tama to the handlebard of your bike so you can glance down at it while you're biking
When you go somewhere new, you show your Tamagotchi the area
You bring your Tama to school every day so it can learn too (or so you can play and NOT learn)
Your computer background and screensavers are Tamagotchi-themed
You've bought more than 20 Tamagotchi-themed items off of Ebay/Amazon
You make little pouches for your Tama to be carried in
Your purse/manbag(lol) has a special compartment for your Tama (I remember getting a gorgeous purse one Christmas, and when I saw it, all I could exclaim about was that the front pocket was the perfect size for my new v4 Tamagotchi)
You play your Tamagotchi on mute during school assemblies
You have defied the school rules of "no electronics during the school hours"
You watched all of the Anime Tamagotchis
You've considered naming pets after characters.

Sadly, I'm guilty of most of these. It's sick how far we'll go with these things xD

I don't call myself guilty. Call yourself a great Tama parent, it's much better than saying you're guilty.

My parents once made this rule: No Tamagotchis at the dinner table. So I put my Tamas away at the dinner table. But nowadays, I keep my Tama(s) with me at all times, and anyway there's no need for that rule anymore because I don't play with Tamas during dinner. I do at restaurants though, if they need attention :D doesn't it absolutely drive you crazy when your family don't know the difference between playing with a Tama and taking care of it? Well, when I'm in the middle of a needy baby stage, my mom always says "stop playing with that!". I thought playing was something you LIKE doing? (I hate Tama baby stages)

Anyway...

When you will NOT pause them, no matter how much everybody tells you to
When you get teased at school but you retaliate and still love Tamas
When you play with them/take care of them in public, no matter how many weird looks you get
When you cry/almost cry if they die (my Tama died yesterday... :( )
When you keep buying stuff for your Tamas, ending up with so many accessories your favourite Tama's too clustered with them to sneak it into school
When you NEED every new version that comes out, and if earning money yourself fails, you plead your parents for next year's pocket money in advance
When you want an infrared phone for iD L downloads so much, you go round all the phone shops in town looking for something with infrared
When you get someone else hooked on Tamas
When you make your Tamas their own special
When, as soon as you get up, you check your Tama and play with it until your mom yells that you're going to be late for school (I hope my recent doings of this don't show up in my report!)


I'm gonna go post somewhere else now.

Lol I did that too.
When your friends are checking their phones for messages, you're checking your tama.
When you completely ignore the post you're typing to care for your tama because it rang just now.
When you beg people for money so you can order that new iD L you have your eye on off eBay.
When you adjust your tama's time so it can celebrate holidays with you (I did that for new year's)
When you fill up a camera memory card with photos of your tama to put on your log.

I did most of these.....xP

When you stay up till midnight then set the time to watch them evolve (I do this lots)
When you give them attention the second they beep
If you get a bad care character, you pity it and take care of it
When you check the movie age rating to make sure they're suitable for your Tama. (XD I do this, I take my Tama out of the room if it's rated higher than my Tama's age :P )
If you're bored, you either check your Tama, go on TamaTalk or go on eBay to look for Tamas.
When you do lots of Tama related stuff even when you're not bored.
When you get home from school and are running a version you can't sneak in, you rush to unpause your Tama before even taking your shoes off

I do them all :) But it's not fair, most of the movies I watch are rated PG so my 4-year-old Meloditchi certainly can't watch them! :(
