You'll watch any movie that has any actor from lotr, even if it's easterling # 15 or so, and make connections to lotr...

you are completely convinced that absolutely everything is related to LoTR...with good reason-it is!

You're obsessed (with the movie) when you twist every other movie you watch by giving the characters nicknames from LOTR. Like in Finding Nemo when Nemo is about to be captured and he screams you scream "NAZGUL!!" when the diver pops up! Heh, heh, no?

To get rid of an annoying five-year-old, you:

Imitate Gollum, asking, "Does it have it? Where is it? We wantsss it! Give it to usss! Give usss our Preciousssss!" while frisking him.

Start shouting at him in Elvish, calling him orc, troll, and a few other things best left unnamed.

Freak him out with your monologue about how he distinctly resembles Gollum and should watch out for short, fat, fifty-year-olds with hairy feet and magic rings.

Poor child...

I'll go you one better. I give them a whole lecture on the difference between "Elves" and "elfs." You see, Elves are noble, wise, fair, tall, and they do not make toys or cookies. They do not dress like clowns, and they are immortal. Elves often have a sort of magic (though not precisely magic persay in Tolkien), they do not act like fools, and they are REAL!!! Elfs, on the other hand, are creatures with no fashion sense whatsoever, they often do make toys or cookies, i.e. Santa's elfs or the Keebler elfs, and, frankly, they do not exist. They are but figments of some poor deranged soul's imagination.

You know you're obssessed when you think it would be cool if you had hairy feet/ is cool that you do (I know people whose feet have hair on them). [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

...when you get into deep philosophical discussions about the relationship between the works of Tolkien and C. S. Lewis.

...when you marvel at how HP fans can live with themselves.

...when you have zoned out, then you randomly hear something LOTR-related, come back down to earth, and look around excitedly, hoping to join in a Tolkien discussion, only to find out that whatever you heard had nothing to do with Tolkien at all (wow, that was a long run-on sentence).

...when your typing skills are derived mainly from multiple posts here at the Downs.

...when you draw diagrams of human ears in relation to elf ears and hobbit ears (in correct proportion and life-size, no less).

...when you spend your free time trying to furhter solidify your precious images of all the characters that you had before the movies came out.

...when in English/lit. class you're supposed to connect something you just read to previous reading, and all that comes to mind is Tolkien.

...when most to all of your private jokes have something to do with Tolkien.

...when you could hug a hobbit.

Wow! That was a long list!
[img]smilies/eek.gif[/img]

But believe me, I have done every single thing on this list (some of them many times).

Yes... accidentally. Well, he did say I could shoot him!

EDIT: This isnt on-topic enough for a new post, but I finally found out how to shoot really far with my bow! [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] The price? I lost my best arrow. [img]smilies/frown.gif[/img] To make it worse I only had 6 in the first place.

People you dont know very well come and ask you questions about how stuff works in LotR (such as Gandalf dying). Also, you inspire 3 people to learn dwarf runes, and are getting more. And random people come up to you and ask if you can write in runes, and when you reply yes they go off mumbling about freaks. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

Its scary cos basically everything Ive posted is true, and Ive actually done it. My friend asked how many of the things on the list I had done, and now Im gonna give her a long lecture [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

You're obsessed when...

...you've read the book so much that you've accidently begun memorizing it, and can rattle off a few chapters.

...you think to yourself "I bet I can find the real middle earth"...and wish you could find it so you could live there.

Lol, I'm guilty of the ears thing(afore mentioned), and my second one. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

~You've memorized at least 14 poems/songs from the books (Not just LotR)

~When at horse-back riding you yell 'Noro lim, Asfaloth, noro lim!' at your horse. (It works, too)

~While on a cruise, you recite Legolas' 'Sea poem' from RotK for no apparent reason.

~While on that same cruise, you discover that the Captain's name is Rocco so you call him 'Captain Horse' for the rest of the cruise. (Rocco means horse in Quenya)

You know you're obbsessed when:

Some girl you've never seen before taps you on the shoulder and asks if it's true that you can speak elvish (I replied with 'shut up' in Sindarin. She was very impressed, especially when I told her that I'd said 'yes, my lady' [img]smilies/evil.gif[/img])

You go through your sister's HP books, crossing out the word 'elf' wherever it is misused and repacing it with 'pixie' (she caught me at it and tried to make my parents make me rub it out. [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img])

You converted your cousin from HP to LotR. (I think she was just so sick of not knowing what I was talking about)

You pose in front of mirrors with a bow.

when you put clear rubber band s at the top of your ears to make them pointy
Sorry since this is off-topic, but I was watching this humane society cop show on Animal Planet (which is like my fave channel [img]smilies/tongue.gif[/img] ) and they took in a Rottweiler that hadn't had a docked (shortened) tail, and the previous owner had tried to dock it him/herself improperly by putting a tight elastic around its tail [img]smilies/frown.gif[/img] Fortunately the dog didn't need its tail amputated.

Yeah, that was very off-topic. Oh well. To make up for it, here's some obsessive stuff I do.
I have both soundtracks and on the FOTR one I know what music goes with every part (like "oh, this music goes with the part when they go through the Argonath), etc.
I have both soundtracks memorized.
If my dad calls me I say "What orders from Mordor, my lord, what does the Eye commmand?"
I constantly say "Fool of a Took" when my brother does something stupid.
I bought the Merry and Pippin action figures (with sword winging action! [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] ) What can I say, they were so cute in plastic....

A general notice to everybody - A lot of what you say can be posted on the quotes thread (forgotten the exact name [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img] ) So that will hopefully turn this thread into a more action thread, as in we write about things we do rather than say. I find them a whole lot more interesting by the way.

FYI: it's easier to get pointy ears by using cosmetic glue; like the kind used for fake fingernails and eyelashes. It looks fairly good and is relatively painless, at least compared to rubber bands.

*I'm not obsessed with LOTR..I'm obsessed with fantasy in general!*

I too, get annoyed when Santa's "elves" are mentioned...they are imps or something

I make references to LOTR all the time. ie I'll see a bridge and want to do the Khazad Dum scene (of course, my non-LOTR friends sometimes don't get it)

getting in long conversations about why swords are soooo much better than guns

Make honest attempts to dress and act Elvish(like buying shirts with flowing sleeves or a general ethereal feel). Ask the person you are shopping with if you look like an elf.

-Elvanui

PS...what is wrong with liking other books (ie Harry Potter)...just because it isn't Tolkien doesn't mean it can't be entertaining.

getting in long conversations about why swords are soooo much better than guns
This is probably the subject that I get into the most argument with other people about. I am a firm believer that we should take all of our guns and weapons of mass destruction out onto an island in the middle of the Pacific Ocean and blow them all up. Conventional warfare and working plumbing all the way! [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

- you beg your mom to put you in archery lessons so that you can surf down stairs on top of a metal shield, while shooting arrows like Legolas (guilty!)

- you persuade your also LotR-obsessed friend to train her horses with Elvish commands

- let out a Nazgul screech whenever someone insults LotR or Tolkien

- you answer in fluent Sindarin when someone asks you the way to a classroom at school

- you randomly speak in Sindarin to your friends and in the hallways to anyone who'll listen

- you create entire speeches in Quenya and Sindarin for your speech class, when the assignment is to create a speech in another language (except English!)

Absolutely nothing. Unless said book is THE STUPID AND MORONIC HARRY POTTER!!!

Sorry about that. Had to get the shout out of my system.

Anyway...

It has gotten to the point that my sibs can finish the LotR quotes that I start. (As one of them is only three, that can get rather amusing)

I spend the day on the Barrowdowns and when my sisters say, "Let's go swimming!" I actually stay home, which is very strange as I think I should have been born a mermaid or an elf. One or the other.

Why do people have to get so cranky about house elves? There is more than one type of elf.

And anyone who answers with "Yes, Teleri, Noldorin, etc." is dead [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

Right on, Meela. [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

You're obsessed when you find it hard to think of a topic of discussion with your friends that doesn't involve LotR in any way, shape, or form.

This also applies if you can take any other thing that your friends are talking about and connect it to LotR in some way.

I know this is a bit off topic guys but let me give you some advice on how to deal with those people who can't disdinguish between "elven" and "elfin." Do what I do. Whenever people say that elves are short ...I say that during the middle ages , when Christianity took over...the christians didnt want anything to come jeopardize the authority of God. THerefore they had people start believing that elves were short and less powerful. Because ,previously Norse and Celtic people believed they were tall and beautiful. I cant stress this enough you people who don't know the difference( not any barrowdowners of course). And believe me ....whta I sya is true...it's in books.
