Add husband and son to #7, not just wife and daughter - it should probably be "spouse and children threaten grave bodily harm if you attempt to talk about the project."  My family does not want to hear about the Foxglove or any other ship for that matter - even though my husband thought the hankie pankie on the Patia was funny.  ;D
#2 You feel flattered on hearing that a fellow transcriber's husband found the goings-on on "your" ship entertaining. :P

I think we are all about as bad. I am certainly a terminal case.

Letting cats out and telling them to patrol as requisite.

I love that one. I will have to ask Tegwen (the dog) to patrol as requisite.

I have just discovered a new one.

You transcribe the passing of the outer bar of the Shatt al Arab heading south and know immediately that is the end of the action for a while. Further you know that you are in for a dull trip to Bombay or Columbo followed by an even duller refit and you still want to continue transcribing.

Well, as long as your cats don't start dragging in Glaswegian ladies of the night through the cat-flap when they return...;)

Laughing out loud with this thread while being 'home alone' also counts in my book.  ;)

Constantly refreshing the OW forum page because you've asked a question about a log page, and you can't move on until it gets answered, but you're itching to keep transcribing...  ;D

Checking the OW rankings first thing to see how far your 147 weather entries from yesterday moved you up in the list.

Muttering about proceeding to the shops for provisions.
Saying you are complete with fuel.

It's funny how those phrases vary between writers, though, isn't it? The log-keeper on the Patia has recently changed, and the new guy keeps using the phrase 'Watch relieved' and every time I come across it, I keep wanting to ask 'Watch relieved about what?'. It's a bit frustrating, actually.

Anyway, neither 'complete with fuel' nor provisions have actually figured very prominently in the logs I've read so far.:(
