I have to say i do most things on the list.
How about....
a)You never let anyone else touch your LOTRs books.
b) you always have a tolkien book in your bag
c) you have decorated your bedroom to look like Rivendell
d) you convienced your brother his bedroom does look better with the doors of durin attached to the door.
e) your english teacher gives in and lets you decorate the room with LOTRs displays knowing that if she did it(and did it wrong) you'd get cross!
f) you tell everyone the date in S.R
g)you eat Lembas and other LOTR food for lunch.
h)you throw a new year party on March 20.
i) you own more than one elven dress
j)You judge what to wear by.. would an elf wear this
k)your school bag has an elven greeting in tengwar on it!(this ones great cause everyone asks what it says and then gives you wierd looks!)
l) your dad calls you his 'little elf maiden', and in school your know as 'that mad elf girl'.
I have to admit i've done all of these!!

I think there's 3 that I have not done yet.


When you attempt to make lembas, and ask your mother for the magics of the elves.


when you try to make a hithlain rope from strips of bark

when you write Lord of the Rings fan fiction

When people no longer give you wierd looks when you shout out some curse in elvish.

When you spend your break arguing about Lord of the Rings with non-believers

When your mother thinks you need to a phycatrist because you keep talking about Lord of the Rings

When you've actually hurt someone for saying Lord of the Rings sucks


guilty, guilty, through and through

you guys do realize how sad this is? [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

-For Superhero day you dress up as a hobbit and get permission from a teacher to whack all the people who insult your costume with your walking stick.
-You make your way to the front of the huge crowd running to get to their lockers in the morning, start walking reeeeally slowly, and yell, "Don't be hasty!"
-No one gets scared anymore when you run up behind someone and go, "gollum, gollum"
-All the evil people that you call mumakil and ulaers are starting to understand what all the things you say in elvish mean
-You labeled all the places on your Geography assignment as places in Middle Earth
-Your teacher is so used to hearing when they talk that "there is a fell voice on the air" that you dont get in trouble anymore
-You are mad at your brother because at his school, instead of lunch, they have elevensies
-You hear and correct even the slightest LotR spelling errors by other people, even if they are on the other side of the lunchroom
-You firmly believe and insist that all the other books that someone else reads has things in it that the author copied from LotR (even if it was written before)

Guilty, guilty, through and through

You know you're obsessed when...

1) We were watching "Signs" the other night and when Mel Gibson is running through the corn field looking for his children, he stops and looks up and down the rows - at which point my son piped up with, "Mr. Frodo? Frodo? Frodo!)

2) During a Jets/Packers game a couple weeks ago, my five-year-old daughter pointed to Shawn Mills (who sports a very large head of dreadlocks) and said, "Hey, look Mommy, they have an Uruk-hai on their team!"

This is the first post I've made, and the second topic I've read, but oh...you guys are awesome! I'm desparetely trying to grow my hair again (it got cut extremely short because of unavoidable circumstances) so I can put it in an Elvish hair-style - meanwhile I constantly try to persuade my best friend to let me put her hair up into Elvish styles - I have a white horse (although I have no gear) so I got Kementari to let me put her hair up Arwen-style and get on the horse so I could take a photo. ("Noro lim, Asfaloth, noro lim!")

I know I'm obsessed because when I go to other people's places and I talk about LOTR non-stop - Mum's getting worried about this, so I'm trying not to mention LOTR, merely to listen to other subjects, but that's harder than it sounds <g> - and the mother of those particular friends says 'You're not talking about Lord of the Rings again, are you?'

Also, my birthday's in December, so at the end of 2001 "Please I don't want any other present, I don't care if I don't get any Christmas ones either but I must have that cd, oh please it can be both my birthday and Christmas present but please, please, please I must have that soundtrack...etc." This was for the FOTR. I watched TTT to celebrate my birthday a year after that episode - the next day, after church, I went and bought the soundtrack. I got banned last year from listening to FOTR soundtrack more than once a day...I was soon able to re-live all of the scenes by the music.

This, I fear, will be an extremely long post, but...I keep hearing lines from the movie while people are talking about something else, and then my brain will automatically live out the next parts. Every time I do the dishes, and I'm washing a bottle/can/cup..."The mirror shows many things...etc." Also when I put chlorine in the pool and I'm rinsing the jug.

Any time at all that I can possibly use lines frrom either the book or the movie I do so. Kem calls me LOTR-obsessed - I say "Guilty!"

I go to a park (BTW, I live in NZ) and I hold up the hand as if to find a particular photo-shot..."Look, Lothlorien/ Cerin Amroth /Anduin / the Ford"(BTW, I've been to the actual place where Rivendell, Ford, Anduin, Isen were all filmed...and I've been to the exhibition, which I'm going to again in February)

Anyway, I'm guilty of a lot of the previously mentioned charges...including the printing out of fifty pages of Quenya (and that's only lessons 1-5!).

I probably shouldn't have written such a long post, but now I have two questions - who stole my 'Elentari' and who already used 'Rebekah'? "They're mine, they stoles them froms us, nasty theiving Bagginses, my preciouss..."

Lots of love and God bless,

Elentari (aka Bekah)

P.S. I went to a horse camp this summer simply because I wanted to ride like the Elves...I've got a long way to go though before I can ride like Legolas. [img]smilies/tongue.gif[/img]

P.P.S. You know you're obsessed when you

a) Buy a chocolate bar merely because it has a picture of Arwen and 'The Lord of the Rings; The Two Towers' written on it.

b) Agree to pay for your little brother's TTT movie ticket merely because you want someone new to discuss the movie vrs. books with.

Where do you find 50 pages of Quenya lessons to print???? The paper would be worth it.

Just imagine: answering people (teachers, friends, strangers....) in Quenya. Fun fun fun...

There's a website called 'Ardalambion' - if you simply type in Ardalambion.com, without worrying about the 'www', you should be able to reach it...otherwise, if you can't, I'll get the proper link and send it.

God bless,

You know you're obsessed when
- you read lists like these, and find yourself agreeing with many of the points
- English class becomes a realm of possibilities for fun! (I did a parody of a Hamlet soliloquy - think "Samlet" [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] )
- More LOTR driving games! If you can't shout "Fly you fools" because the traffic is too fast, play "YOU CANNOT PASS!"

LOL. My friends have said I'm way beyond obsessed now..... not that it's a bad thing!

I got a big kick out of these (guilty):
Quote:
you eat Lembas and other LOTR food for lunch.
you own more than one elven dress
you judge what to wear by.. would an elf wear this
I can add:
Things that you scoffed at owning or collecting just a year ago are slowly starting to accumulate on your shelves... "Bookmarks? Bookends? What would I want those for?" (blush)
You have more maps and illustrations printed out than you have room for on your office walls
You experiment with Lembas recipes looking for results that will really travel and keep well
You walk around your neighborhood wondering whether Frodo would enjoy it here
You wonder where Frodo would want to go hiking in your town if he did visit
You take up archery because it's elvish
You buy only jewelry that looks elvish
Anytime you walk into a store you only buy clothes that you think a hobbit or elf would wear
Your shopping buddy says, "I know, I know-- not elvish enough. But how about this? Isn't THIS elvish enough??"
You buy corderoy jackets and vests because they're almost like Frodo's velvet ones-- and you wear them to work with Capri leggings, sandals, and of course a ring on a necklace-- at least once a week
You start carrying apples in your (corderoy) jacket pockets because Merry would too
You start thinking of your Poland Springs water bottle as essential for travel through Mordor
You start collecting various editions of the trilogy for the cover art
Your best friend went to FOTR three times with you even though "the monsters were scary" because she knew that was all you really wanted to see
You've written enough fanfiction that people can't keep your various hobbits straight
Your spouse asks "What are you thinking?" and then when he sees your mischievous smile he says "Oh-- that. Nevermind."
Your spouse looks searchingly into your eyes and asks, "Can't we-- please-- talk about something else?"

Lets see, I have all the action figures from the Fellowship of the Ring(a lack of funds has prevented the purchase of the Two Towers figures and I am an honest person [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img] ), and flew into a rage when I first saw the Two Towers at the horrendous changes that were made, spent over $100 just going to see the Fellowship of the Ring, hear the music in my head, can picture exactly what is happening in the movie as the music plays, and have a boyfriend who wears the one ring! Little does he know that the precious is just within my grasp....... [img]smilies/evil.gif[/img]

Here's a new one!

When you and your friends take turns shooting hoops, and every time you make one you gain a characteristic or piece of gear for your favorite character. I have Eowyn's pretty clothes and her swordfighting skills! Good luck on the hair, Kevie!

Also, when you don't get your way you take a commanding tone of voice and say, "Do you dare defy Eowyn, Shieldmaiden of the Mark? Behold her terrible fury and grace!"

When you and your friends invent a new drinking game to go along with FotR DVD. You (if you're over 21 of course) must do a shot (preferrably tequila but JB will do if you're out of limes [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img] ) everytime...

a hobbit cries
a black rider shows up
someone smokes a pipe
Frodo puts on the Ring (not tries to, mind you)
Frodo falls down
Legolas' eyes change color
someone says mithril
etc., etc.

I can't quite remember if we've ever made it to the 2nd disc.

Question

Guilty, guilty, guilty. I am obsessed.

Quote:
-Getting very upset when someone picks up your book with out asking let alone attempting read the front cover.
Here's my story on that: One day a guy comes over to my desk and picks up my TT book. "What's this?" he asked. "Is it Harry Potter? 'Cuz it's got some evil writing on it." The guy then attempted to read the ring inscrption.

"No, you idiot! It's Lord of the Ringd: The Two Towers!" I pointed to the bold text on the cover.

"Well, then what does that say?" he asked, pointing to the Black Speech.

"Would you like me to read it in the Common Speech or the Black Speech?"

"Huh?"

"In the Black Speeck it says, 'Ash nazg durbatulŻk, ash nazg gimbatul; ash nazg thrakatulŻk agh burzum-ishi krimpatul.'"

"What?!"

In my best Ian Mckellen voice I said, "In the Common Tongue it says, 'One ring to rule them all, one ring to find them; one ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them'" Then I showed him my Science binder adorned with the Black Speech. He was really freaked out.

Quote that this reminded me of:

Sauron to HP: So you put your curses inside your books? Dude, that's EVIL.

I get called a Lordy, and my friends know exactly what I'm thinking when I am looking off into space or something. Whenever anybody says, "Neither do I," I always say, "Keep it secret. Keep it safe." My best friend, who doesn't like LotR, knows like half the lines now because of me saying them. [img]smilies/tongue.gif[/img]

Also, I have a tendency to write, "NAZGUL!", and "Yrch!" all over my binders and stuff whenever I am bored. [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

The Eye

1) When you start counting down to RotK before TTT is even in theaters yet.

2) When you can here someone mispronounce a LotR name from at least thirty feet away.

3) When you've frightened someone to tears because you overheard them relating faulty information about LotR.

4) When your teachers give you homework assignments, you mutter, "Why do you lay these troubles on an already troubled mind?"

5) When you see the movie at least five times in the first two weeks after it came out.

6) When you have resorted to hanging your new LotR posters/pics on your ceiling because there's no room left on your walls.

7) When there's no room left on your ceiling either.

Yes, I am guilty of all of these...

You write an essay about LotR for your creative essay class (perhaps bad enough in and of itself) and frighten your professor by reading the Black Speech inscription from the Ring more fluently than English when you read the essay aloud in class. [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img]

269? Thought it was 268...

I have to say that I replied 'yes' to nearly all of these. My friend spelled Merry 'Mary' and Mordor 'Mordour'. I got the teensiest bit ticked off at her. Who am I kidding, I flipped!

You know you're obsessed with LotR when your friend asks you something about Aragorn and/or Arwen and you can (and do) launch into a total explanation of what happens to them, how they are related, and all the different components in their bloodlines. (I did this at church the other day and scared a bunch of people so bad they haven't spoken to me since....)

You know you're obsessed when you want to buy one of those big tote bags so you can carry the LotR trilogy where ever you go.

No, I don't want to do that... [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img]

a)You think there should be self-help tapes "You are a strong and graceful elf." b)When you wish that heaven turns out to be like ME.
c)When your friends who don't like LOTR ask "What happened on the Downs yesterday?" cuz they know they're going to find out anyway.
d)You ask random people if they would rather be a hobbit or an elf.
e)Whenever your math teacher enters you mutter "mornie...yrch!"

Question

ARE YOU GUYS SPYING ON ME OR WHAT?!?!

Quote:
You write an essay about LotR for your creative essay class (perhaps bad enough in and of itself) and frighten your professor by reading the Black Speech inscription from the Ring more fluently than English when you read the essay aloud in class.
You're right... perhaps that was a bad idea...

I like that maths teacher-mornie-yrch one thats useful I will use it next time my maths teacher comes in the room...

I got one:
When you teach your little 6 year old cousin all the characters from the Lord of the Rings and she can act them all out perfectly.
(try this one, it's cute)

*sniffles a little* I HATE being sick...naturally, I'm wishing for Aragorn and/or Elrond right now. Then I would have been better, hopefully before today.(I missed my chorus festival)
oh dear...I'm not as alone as I thought. my Gym folder and my binder are both covered in LotR stuff. My notebooks are full of LotR doodles. Silver paint pens are a wonderful thing. (added bonus is that they're silver--think ithildin) *sneezes and coughs at the same time* ow...

I know I'm obsessed because...

-I wrote a realistic fan fiction as a french assignment.
-I wish day in and day out that Elijah or Orlando will come by and take me to middle earth.(Highschool is soo boring)
-I ask for the extended Lotr books for b-day and xmas instead of money.
-My friends and I have long meaningful arguments every morning on various details.
-I've learned BY MY SELF the soundtrack on piano and trumpet and recorder.(All the parts too) and play them often to the music
-I can't sleep without my soundtrack music.
-I attempt to draw hobbits in their natural suroundings.

I love this book!

WYou're obsessed when you have
LoTR book (in 2 languages)
the Silmarillion (in 2 languages)
The Hobbit (also in 2 languages)
Unfinished tales
Tolkein encyclopedia
Both soundtracks
The DVD of FOTR with all the specials
The sheet music
Symphony #1 (LOTR) by Johan de Mij
When you drive your family crazy with LOTR lore and quotes and your friends too
When the first fan fiction you have ever written is a Tolkein one
When you read the book every year
etc......

You know you're obsessed when you want to see the 3rd HP movie just because you know there'll be a RotK trailer in it.

Question

I got the TTT soundtrack the day it came out!!

Quote:

I do that all the time!! And you know you're obsessed when you know exactly what track #13 is, and exactly what it sounds like. And you know right where to say 'GANDALF!!'

Well, whenever any of my friends are on top of a hill, someone takes a turn in saying. "This hill is so high... I can see Mordor form here!"

And the other day, my boyfriend and I were out in the surf, and the waves were really flat and he says to me. "we really need that elf chick here to get the swell up".. meaning that he was reffering to the Flight to the ford scene where Arwen washes away the ringwraiths, I thought it was so cute!
