Let me start this thread.

You know you've played too much piano when...

1. Playing Hanon exercises start sounding like really catchy songs.

2. At rock concerts, you rather watch the pianist at work instead of the whole band.

That's funny. Because I often tend to focus my attention to the pianist instead of the whole band. But I do not consider this to be a "problem", I just try to watch how the piano works and tend to "isolate" the piano sound from the rest of the sounds.

when you start tapping any horizontal surface

when you feel sad when a song doesn't have piano in it

when you take piano scores with you on the bus/train and read them

when you don't care your musical taste is a minority in society/friends

when a piece starts playing in your head according to your mood/situation

When you're going through a score at Starbucks as if you were the director, a lady stares at you, grabs some sugar in order to take a look at what you're doing and says: Oh... pianist. Then goes back and sits with her friend.

When you date a girl and the vast majority of your topics are piano-related. Then she starts talking about Justin Bieber and you know you MUST leave.

When you dont have to trim your nails anymore, because the piano keys are wearing them down enough.

when you have "dinged" your cup of coffee in the microwave for the sixteenth time... oh YES, do you do that as well?

When Casio doesn't sound like a calculator, Yamaha doesn't sound like a bike, and when the most interesting thing in a car are the pedals! (I'm getting my driver's license next year, I hope I'll not push the gas anytime the song in the radio changes chords...)

Also when you have an irresistible urge to beat everyone with 88 combo in Texas hold'em!

You play piano too much if you get this joke AND think it is funny:

An E, a G and a B walk into a bar. And the bartender says.. "Sorry, we don't serve minors."

BA-DA-DUM!

And finally soared in the morning glow while non-believers watched from below.”

You mean like your husband/wife/children being the one staring? I nearly hugged my last piano in the days after it was sold but before it was moved away cry.

When you dream that you are trying to install a Steinway grand sample on your old upright. That can be somewhat problematic, so you are happy to wake up and find that your old piano sounds more wonderful than ever.

...when someone ask 'what is your type of beauty', you mentally flick through images of hot pianists

...you wake up and you hear some music in your head, so you must go play, because it won't go away, and then suddenly you end up not having time for breakfast

...you move your hands in funny ways in public

...you are extremely annoyed by the fact that finger 4 won't move up when all other fingers are clenched in a fist

...you wonder if you can get your toes to move separately

...you were disappointed by the movie 'Shine' because there wasn't enough playing in it

When you realise you've never seen what your piano looks like with the lid closed.

I had this realisation tonight, and it actually took a little while to figure out how to close the lid without trapping my fingers. In case you were wondering, it's really shiny, almost as if no dust has ever fallen on it. grin For a second there I was sad that I don't have the key, but quickly decided it'd be the least useful key I owned if I did have it!
