In Relation to Anne McCaffrey's PERN...

You know you've been reading Pern too long when....


and my collection of favorites from this site
You Know You've Been Reading Pern Too Long When...
    A collection of Pern humor.


You're at a National Park, you see a sign that says "Path This Way", and start running, looking for a green dragon.

You have bumper sticker saying: "I'd rather be flying my dragon." or "My other vehicle is a dragon."

You're watching the Olympics and you wonder how a man can get a Gold, how a woman can get a Bronze, and if the Silver is a runt of some kind.

You will only buy cars that are Bronze, Brown, Blue, Green (men) or Gold (women), and then after signing the contract you smile and tell the salemen the cars name.

You're feeling slightly amorous and immediately think your dragon must be proddy.

You swell with rage whenever you see a dragon depicted as evil in legends



The name 'Fax' leaps to mind while watching a documentary about Hitler.

When you hear take me to your leader and the first name that comes to mind is F'lar.

You read a story about con artists and wonder how many of them are Bitran.

You see a good-looking guy and think, "Sure, he's cute, but he ain't no F'lar."

Terms & Phrases

You call an irritating sibling a "deadglow."

You scream "Heard and witnessed" when your teacher threatens to throw your best friend out the next time they do that.

You go to ask your boss for a promotion and ask him when you'll get to "walk the tables".

When someone asks your birthday, you say Pass 13.05.04

You see a beatle and call it a trundle bug.

You take to swearing "Shards", "Shells" or any other Pernese cuss word.


You look out at a grey sky and think "that looks like thread!"

You hear a newscaster mention that NASA is planning a trip to "the Red Planet" and you think, "but F'lar and company did that already."

A BLUE Dragon Lies Beneath!

I took the Inner Dragon online quiz and found out I am a Blue Dragon on the inside. If there ever was a draconic example of a supple attitude, my Inner Dragon is it. Blues are the Water Elemental dragon - typified by their Steam breath weapon. Pretty creative, huh? It goes right along with my Inner Dragon's tendency to maim, but not destroy. Much like my native oceans and rivers will deform the rock over time, eventually wearing it away to nothing.

Humans shouldn't make the mistake of thinking I'm weak, however. After all I'm a good 30 feet in length and have a penchant for materializing out of any body of water, no matter how small. I also enjoy communicating with aquatic life-forms, hunting in totally inhospitable terrain (i.e. 3000 feet below the waves), and using my fluid nature to my advantage. My enemies probably won't even see me approach in the first place. My favorable attributes are the sunset, Autumn, water, compassion, intuition, and calmness. Naturally, I pity the fool who'd try and prove that calmness part, he'd probably wind up being scalded. *small grin*
