There are times when you just know it's time to get a reality check. I must admit that I have a weee bit of a tendancy to lose touch once and a while. This thread is dedicated to those signs that you just need to get out more (or else take a vacation).

To quote Pink and HapeeWendy:
I'm a hazard to myself!
