That's brilliant! I've got three more, one of Beleriand, one of Numenor, and one of the map in the Hobbit, Wilderland. These other ones haven't been framed yet though. They came in this book thing. It's great!


Also, when your mum says "And he's got a bombadier jacket." And you think she says "And he's got a Bombadil jacket."

One-upmanship

You know you're obsessed when you don't even need a map to look at.

When you have all of Tolkien's books on your iPod (Poems, history of Middle-earth, and the books) so that it takes up all the space you have.

Mind, I am the person who once joked at work that I don't have a passport because the only 'foreign' place I want to go to is Middle-earth and the only passport I need to visit that is a copy of Lord of the Rings. I'm such a geek.

That's okay, I can't find these places on a map either. Of course, I don't have a map of Britain, and I have a map of Middle-earth.

But, wouldn't you want to go other places too? Like... Gallifrey?

This is true. But I'd have to rely on the Time Lord in the blue box to get me there! It's not as easy to get to as Middle-earth is

And I'd probably have to go back in time as well, and if the Time War is time locked then I'd end up like Dalek Caan...

Yes, well. You see, it's rather that I thought it surprising and pitiful that there is anybody who does not know where Rhudaur or Khand is.

Indeed.

Anyway, I wonder what does it tell of my mind that I have dreams where a friend of mine wants to rewrite LotR so that she corrects all the plotholes and illogicalities and end up explaining her why using the eagles wouldn't have made any sense...

No, probably not. Besides Middle-earth, like you said, is so much more easy to get to.

I started reading the Hobbit to my mum's friend's five year old daughter.

Today, I was scanning about 300 page-long book. I did not even pay much attention to what's been inside the book at that moment: just scan, turn the page, scan, turn the page... Now what does it say about me that suddenly, I spotted words "Men of Erech" on one page? What worse, I checked with the book's index and the word "Erech" occurs only once in the whole book. Scary.

When at school you need to write the word "habit" but you by mistake spell it as "habbit", which you then correct to "hobbit" without thinking, only later realising your mistake.

Whoops! That sounds like something that I would do! Did you turn this in before you realised this?

Not in the least!

To-day, instead of actually listening to the presentation in school, I drew a hobbit hole, well Bag End. I showed it to some of my friends because I was so proud of my accomplishment! Then there was this annoying child who said "What's that?", that ruined my satisfaction.

Drawing a picture of a hobbit while waiting for my niece to get through at the doctor's.

When she came out and saw what I drew, she goes "Is that Merry, Pip, Frodo... or Sam?"

Hehe. She is only seven, but well on her way to becoming obsessed. She can't wait until she can read the books on her own. xD

You know you're obsessed with LOTR when...

Everytime I'm in a group of friends and we are trying to decide on a movie to watch the first thing they do is look at me and firmly say "Not the Lord of the Rings again." hehe

Or same goes for my English teacher in highschool, we had to read 3 books for his class and check by him to see if each were ok, he looked at me and said "No, you can't read all three of the Lord of the Rings books for yours, pick one and only one", before I had even told him my plans.

You could have gone for the Silm and Hobbit too!

Also, when you find the french words "nous saurons" amusing.

I have done that exact thing before only I had gotten to the firework of the dragon and was just up to 'Lets get another one' lol my friend Ashlea stared at me so weirdly

obsessed

You know you're obsessed with Lotrs

When you hold an unconsoleable grudge against Arwen for stealing Glorfindel's horse in the movie despite everyone telling you it is just a movie.

This of course does nothing to change your mind, and only makes you consider Peter Jackson being in on it (guilty)

When you have to elaborate on some topic and the first example that comes to your mind is from LotR.

My family watched FotR this week. I was complaining the whole time, "But that didn't really happen!" or "She wasn't really there!". This is while my parents are telling me to shut up because I'm "spoiling" the film. I know the feeling...

EDIT: I made up a new game today that involves LotR. You write down as many names from LotR as you can remember. Sometimes you can ask for help, today, my mum suggested Gil-Galad, she doesn't even know who Gil-Galad is!

That's brilliant! Stuff like that should happen more often to me.

You want to change mothers? Mine's really annoying. She'll start talking about some sort of Tolkien-esque thing and she doesn't even know what she's talking about. I'll say "Mum, that wasn't even in the book." and "You've never read about Tom Bombadil!" She does the same thing with Doctor Who...
