Things you do because you're an Avengers fan

Post by dissolute »

Not sure if this is the BEST place for this thread but I couldn't see any other likely contender (other than "Everything Else")...

Anyhow, I cut myself shaving this morning and immediately thought to myself, "Rather badly, I'm afraid."*

In fact, the phrase "cut myself/yourself" ALWAYS suggests the quote to me and I frequently say it, confusing my friends and colleagues no end.

SOOOO, what do you do, purely because you're an Avengers fan?

I can't say that any mannerisms or sayings I use have anything to do with The Avengers. Most of the time I can't remember dialogue, which probably doesn't help in that department...

However, because of getting into looking for (and at) filming locations thanks to The Avengers, I now find I can't watch anything on TV without thinking "I wonder where that was filmed", which is often following up with "Haven't I seen that in The Avengers?"...

Any scene involving putting Steed's Golf reminds me of when I ran two putting greens in 2000/2001. We sometimes then set up indoor putting with, as in The Avengers, anything handy as a target. Steed is quite good at it!

There's someone running for public office where I live by the name of Linda Thor. Every time I see one of her campaign signs, you know who I'm thinking of!

I copied Steed's door knock at the beginning of the Master Minds, not so much because of the Avengers, but because I wanted a signature knock.
