Question

This morning I was reading a bit of The Phantom of the Opera, and I came across the name Darius. Of course, the first thing that popped into my head was, 'Lyra!' There have been so many other Phantom connections that I can't think of right now...

Arafangwen, is it safe to assume that you are a Phantom phan? *crosses fingers*

It depends on what Phantom you're talking about . Actualy, I love all of the Phantoms I know [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img] [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img] . I really do like the Phantom of the Opera though, but that's not the-. I'm just digging myself deeper and deeper into this hole.....

Aha! Wrong Darius but never mind. I'm a symptom again!

How about it was my Prom (what us Brits call a Prom anyhow) half way through the BDs birthday party and as I got up to dance I had visions of the macarena, exploding Balrog wings and a hippo... People might have wondered at my demonic grin!

A very obvious sign of addiction is to see BD'ers everywhere, like when you read in a travel guide about Ireland's lush, green countryside, but when you spot the word 'beren' and think of Beren87 before Beren Erchamion, then you're mad... [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img]

I look out my backyard and imagine my dogs are hobbits...

I carried my friend's two-month-old baby and thought it was a hobbit...

I keep the downs on my computer when I'm online, and I get all tense when I'm in school and I'm not on a computer somewhere...

You tend to recomend the Barrow Downs to everyone that you meet.

You pester your friend to go look at the Barow Downs.

And finally the Barrow Downs is the first thing you do in the morning( if you don't have work).

...I treat Barrow Downs as a sedative, next to coffee.

Addiction to Eowyn Challenge: I just walked for 2 miles under the 1pm sun, foregoing any transportation just to get more miles on the challenge.

Ah, the Eowyn challenge! I am also adicted to that! I've even started to carry my counter thingy around with me everywhere.

*Even the people who don't know you, know that they should tell you they don't like the Barrow Downs before you start introducing them to every aspect of it, ie.=you have quite a reputation for obsession

You know you're addicted when you get more excited about the PT you just got than the date you have tonight.

Beren, that is really alarming! Though not having a boyfriend because your social life is Barrow-based is just as bad... [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img] And also, using the prefix barrow- on every possible word is a bit worrying. Like having a word file called Barrow-Quotes on your PC, full of BDers' sigs and other quotes from the Downs.

The highlight of your day, even though you just took the SAT II's and think you did really well, was seeing that the X-Men-related locations are increasing, even though they are all ganging up on you. You also go around looking at people's Locations just for fun.

EDIT:

I have one called "Barrow Downs Chat Quotes", so don't be alarmed. And now, for the record, with size 7 font, 1/2 inch margins on every side, and three columns, it is now nearly two full pages long.

I didn't have a date, but I did get pretty darn excited about the PT.

I also have a Barrow-Quotes file, and it is also very long. [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

Yes! Jumping up and down and squealing when you get a PT is a bad sign. Especially when your sister is having all her friends around for her birthday party...

SOPHIA: coughcough CONGRATULATIONS! I thought I shouldn't make a post on the RTC discussion thread just for that.

True. I added somebody to my instant messenger, but got one character wrong. I asked them if they liked LotR, recommended BDs, and left!
I also bug my friends who aren't really obsessed to come here. And Teachers. And Librarians. And...

I also dream about the barrowdowns sometimes. My dreams are quite odd. I dreamed once I was reading a book, and all the characters were people from the 'downs.

you talk to the people on here more then your own family. [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

when you are in a resteraunt and suddenly have a good idea for a post, you imediatly pull out a pen and start writing on a napkin... despite the odd looks you are given by your friends.

you've decided to skip showers to have more time on here (I'm not quite at that point!)

Although people (in real life)seem to think you are the most obsessed person on this planet, you feel ashamed that you are not as obsessed as your fellow BD'ers

you feel like you fit in more with people here then offline.

You're at a wedding, and you suddenly get an idea for your next RPG post, and start writing it all over the program.

Your home-page is NOT the Downs, to save bandwidth (I'm a good g.irl, amn't I?) but is your email, and you immediately go to the threads that you have posted on, via saved messages with the links to them.

Your dad has told you that you need to get a life because you spend so much time on the Downs.

When you have managed to get your little sister who has a love affair with Peter Benchley (his books anyway) interested enough in LotR to register on the Downs! (Go me!)

When you start getting BD withdrawal when you sister takes ten minutes more on the computer than she was supposed to.

*You now have a collection of BDers sigs and Avatars *ish very proud* [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

*You see one of Beren87's posts and yell (very loudly, I might add), "YAYISHNESS!!! Beren's confetti-throwing wizard is back--even though he's not throwing confetti anymore! YAY!!"

I received some very, very odd looks after that particular comment ("What? I wasn't doing anything! Honest! Just... go about you buiseness everybody!").

My sister's screen name? Who in all Felturn is that? Actually, she used to be Who the Heck is That? but we made a leetle mistake about her birthday when we registered that one. She lost interest for a while, then decided to reregister, and Who in all Felturn is That? was born.

Oh, yes, and I have another sister who's registered. Her screen name is Durlossiel.

When you sit at the computer for hours, waiting for someone to reply to your latest post in the Dragon. When that post finally comes, you squeal, then reply.

Yep. That's me. I spend more time talking on the Downs than I do talking in real life... It's nice to talk here though, because the people here are just like me [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] It's nice to have people to talk to, since none of my frineds are Tolkien fans. *sniffle* I love you guys!

Okay...I'll stop being sappy now. [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img]

The only reason you get off of BD, or stop reading the books, or watching the movies, or the extras, is to do The Walk To Rivendell! That's me.
