You'll know that you are a "Tiki Person" when you order things like THESE:

I thought this thread was about 'when are you a tiki person' as in:

"At night"
"In the mid afternoon"
"only at Parties"

and so on!

ahhah

Actually, you did post it in the main area but the Mods decided it wasn't worthy of main area discussion and moved it here.

And get over it. No need in being obsessed over whether or not you should label yourself.

Fer the record -- it wasn't a mod decision, it got U-Modded by users. These days, it's extraordinarily rare for us to move something without having received U-Mods, you can pretty much bet that if something got moved, it's because TCers U-Modded it.

Also, posts get moved to other areas because it helps to organize the content by topic of discussion; topics in the main area aren't there because they're more "worthy" of discussion. They just don't belong in the other areas (or haven't been U-Modded yet, or have gotten conflicting U-Mods).

I am still a little surprised at the lack of sense of humor in some of these replies. I really don't think that Ewik was expressing serious concerns weighing heavily on his soul, merely trying to open a playful discussion.

when are you a tiki person?

Heck if I know, I like grenadine in my pineapple juice Mai-Tais and Jimmy Buffett(the new stuff, too).

However, I do know when I became a Tiki "man". That was Manila, 1983, first port of call for seaman midnite. If you know what I mean, and I think you do...nudge nudge, wink wink, say no more.

I later became a captain, but I was never in the Navy.

It did not even cross my mind that it was a question about collecting tiki stuff I was just poking fun at my self. I thought that this forum was more for serious talk on collecting tiki stuff. I have to admit though the serious answers to a silly topic are funny.
For me the tiki stuff is all about not taking life so seriously. I cant tell you how funny it is when my ultra conservative christian aunt comes over to visit and the only thing I have clean for her to drink from is an evil bastard mug.

Ouch!
I like the tiki band aids by the way. I almost ordered some and then realized the shipping was more than the band aids. So I've decided to pick some up at Archie's when I'm in Seattle next month!
Ewik-- if that is your real name--
I'd say you should be worried about being "a problem collector" rather than just a collector. It's like the difference between a problem gambler and someone who plays the slots once in a while.
When you start using rent money, car payments, or grocery money to buy tiki mugs, you definitely have a problem. You don't do you? If it's all, oh what's that word, discretionary spending, then don't worry about it.
Now where did I put that money we were saving for a down payment on a house?

Ewik, it sounds like you & I are in the same boat. I was in denial about being a mug collector for a long time, until I looked at my mug shelf and realized that I had mugs piling up on the floor that weren't fitting. Now I get all twitchy at the sight of the Munktiki vending machine. I've given up on fighting it.

We felt a little rushed at the art show last week; I would have liked to have chatted more with folks, but I wouldn't have recognized you, anyhow! Perhaps they should make the artists wear a red dot on their head at those things.

How about a standardised TC tatt?
"I'm a TC member and Im addicted to tiki paraphanalia. Don't start me talking on tiki unless you dig it too cause I will never shut up about it. Ill talk about suffering bastard mugs and Witco art until your eyes are rolling back into your head as you feverishly look for an out and the sun starts to come up to announce a new day. And if Im drunk, it could be even worse..."
Well, that might not fit on peoples foreheads, but you get the idea.
