When you go to Natural Bridge Caverns in San Antonio, Texas and finish off an entire roll of film inside just because the caves look like a cross between Gollum's Caves (that's what I like to call them) and Aglarond. There was also a room called the Hall of the Mountain King! How cool is that!

Forest Walker, the "Do the Wave for Boromir the Disco King," in all of its various incarnations, comes from this thread, "Make your own Crazy Scene with Pics." Sadly, it got closed.

When you step out of your house, the first thing you see is the moon. You glance at it, and hiss, "We hates the pales face, my precious, doesn't we?" Then I turned to the yellow face and started cursing it.

While singing in the shower, you compose a tune to Galadriel's Lament. (or any other LotR poem, that's just the one I did.)

when you are holding your binder and someone recognizes Luthien you ask "Does 'Wave kings at Boromir the disco squid mean anything to you?'"
unfortunatly this person was not a 'downie.

It was still cool though, because I don't know anyone else(irl) who likes Lotr!

elfearz, that's almost what happened to me! Even that I didn't get to meet another Downie. [img]smilies/frown.gif[/img]

Quote:
Anyway, today in my Physics class, we played pictionary (don't ask) and one of the guys said that he knew greek (I can't remember why), I said, "I know elvish" with kind of a shrug, and then he said, "I want to learn that." I was so excited. And then we ended up talking about LotR during notes (bad us! ) and I told him about BD so maybe he'll show up here someday soon and that would be so cool!
I'll have to get him to tell me his screen name when he registers. I want to meet another Downie!

Yeah...I dressed up like a female version of Jack Sparrow, seeing as I'm a girl, and walked around the block with my friend trying to recruit little children in her neighborhood to join my pirate crew as my friend sighed and shook her head.

Dominic Monaghan writes "Trees" on his hand because he is obsessed with trees. So I tried it and it turned out to be a great way to get weird looks! [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

Same here. [img]smilies/frown.gif[/img] The only place there might be Downies would be at the two colleges in my town. So when I was in the college bookstore today, I wrote on one of those pen test-pads "Do the wave for Boromir the disco king! If you know where this came from, PM Goldberry!" But I highly doubt anybody will see it. [img]smilies/frown.gif[/img]

You know you are obsessed when you are counting down the days until Frodo and Bilbo's birthday, and are planning your party. I'm so excited! [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

There are a few Tolkienites at my school, but not many. And only one of them has read LotR more times than I have, so HA! [img]smilies/evil.gif[/img]

You're obsessed when the LotR pic files on your computer are constantly running out of room...

You know you're obsessed with LotR when:

--You are walking home and know where all the good places to get sword-straight sticks are on the way.

--You get one of those sticks and act out one of the RPGs that you're in (playing someone else's character because yours is male and you aren't).

--You behead several stalks of grass, about a dozen m.ushrooms, and one tree-branch, calling them orcs and trolls, and shouting "Gurth G.othrim Tel'Laiqataure!" (which means Dea,th to the foes of the Greenwood! (courtesy of Nerindel))

--After you have destroyed the foul minions of Sauron, you run across a poor, (presumably)i.nnocent spider, and kill it, shouting, "Die you evil spawn of Ungoliant!"

--Your sword breaks, and you stop beheading plants.

--Now Greenwood is peaceful apparently, because you pick a handful of small white flowers, calling them 'niphredil' and braid them into a coronet.

--You almost cry when said coronet isn't quite big enough to fit on your head.

--You 'kelebrate' because you can wear it after all. (arrange it like a tiara)

--You sing the ME version of 'My Favorite Things' at the top of your lungs while walking home.

--You call a few guys who got on your nerves by calling out at you as you walked past 'Bill Ferny and Friends' (under my breath, so they didn't hear me. I had heard enough from them, hanon le.)

After all this, you finally get home and immediately go to the Downs to post it all. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

Edit: I apologize for the periods in weird places; my computer censors the oddest words...

Yep. I also wrote it on all my calendars. And my friend's calendar...

Woo! I got a comment on my ring today! Well-sort of. This girl who sits next to me in Spanish asked, "Is that like, the 'Lord of the Rings' ring?" I, being my own shy self, was like "Yeah..." She said, "That's crazy!" and turned back to her work. But it was a good crazy! Like...crazy as in "I never knew they made those...that's kind of weird..."

Not much of a story, but I was quite excited. Ya know what? In real life I'm pretty shy and quiet but on the Downs I'm more...outspoken. Hmm... Ah well.

Haha,
I'm happy for you Amarantha_Daisy.
I had a similar experience, only they didn't say crazy...
I was passing brief notes to the guy behind me in english, he started going off on how he hated preps(bad word at my school)
I told him
CRAZIES! SILLIES! It hurts us it does.
and he should be less judgemental, my precious. And many more collums such as that.
He wrote back saying
LORD OF THE RINGS DORK! LORD OF THE RINGS SUCKs!!!
I wrote back saying that I didn't ridicule any of his interests or hobbies, and that at least I was cool enough with myself to announce my biggests loves, even though people think other than they are great.
From then on, he's had so much more respect for me and my opinions. But I still restrain from going off about LOTR. [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

When you dream about Glaurung attacking your house! [img]smilies/eek.gif[/img] [img]smilies/eek.gif[/img] And all I had in defense was about 5 elven archers... I kept yelling "aim for his belly," but for some reason they wanted to take out the orcs first...

When you tell somebody you had a dream about a dragon and he says, "Let me guess, the dragon was from the Lord of the Rings."

When your favourite insult is "Betrayer of thy mother's kin."

When you talk in old English.

When you hear some girls behind you saying "I love Strider, he's so fit," you turn around and glare at them.

When you have so many things to post here that you forget a good few of them.


I just realised that when I'm doing low energy tasks, eg picking apples, watering the garden, I hum the LotR.

While riding your bike, you hear a car coming behind you, and decide to pretend it's a Nazgul. You shout "Noro lim, Asfaloth!" to your bike and try to go faster than the car. (It didn't work, I'm too slow. [img]smilies/frown.gif[/img] )

I've got just about every date in LotR written down on my calender. I've got March 25 marked in big red letters: "Destruction of Barad-dur and Downfall of the Lord of the Ring". Everyone be sure to mark that!!!
*gasp* How could I forget?! I'll so that straightaway...

~When you name random strangers after LotR characters.

My friend and I saw four little kids who we named Frodo, Sam, Merry, and Pippin. The thin one, who looked to be the oldest was Frodo, the one who kept following him around and talking to him was Sam, the one who kept jumping around like a maniac was Pippin, and the other one was Merry... Then I was Boromir and my friend was Aragorn. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

I fought my first orc today! My sword was two branches that had twisted together into one, so it was a bit weird looking....but it worked just fine!

Wow! That's so exciting! I wish that was happening near me. [img]smilies/frown.gif[/img] Oh well...lucky you! *cheers for Sapphire* [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

You know you are obsessed with LotR when, on your (so easy for native English speakers that it was insulting) English grammar homework, when you are asked to write the plural of "leaf" (I told you it was easy), you write "lassi" but then realize it was English grammer, not Quenya.

Yep, I do that too, except I only name lookalikes. And guess what? Eowyn transferred into my dance class! [img]smilies/cool.gif[/img] I know her real name now, and she's really fun to talk to. I'm Arwen, and Eowyn is my friend! [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

And what grade are you in? I get a lot of insultingly easy assignments in my English class too. The sad thing is that some people actually don't understand it. I pity them.

I actually didn't get as many weird looks as I expected for dressing up today, lots of people knew that its talk like a pirate day, and there were three Jack Sparrows that I saw at my school, (including me) and lots more un-sparrish pirates. It was fun though.

Edit: How long will this be on the 6th page? It's been like this for several days!

you dress up and show your friend your new Easterling/Haradrim spy costume (complete with dirt smudges and gold and black designs on face) and it is so convincing that he picks up your sword (which was conveniently lying on my sofa) and starts chasing after you, screaming "Herio!"

(Don't ask, I have strange friends.)

Last night, because I am in the downs for the walk to rivendell I wore my costume equipped with my sword and bow and arrow (Imagine the looks I got). Then I saw a bunny and yelled " It's a wight!" and shot passed it. (of course purposely missing) My mom was quite worried [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img]

*squee* Lucky! I don't know if my theater's doing that... I'll have to find out. I certainly hope so!


-All your friends know who Glorfindel is but they haven't read the books, it's just your kind inputs [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

-You find yourself humming "Gil-Galad the Elven-King" subconsiously

-Your friends can always tell when you're about to make a LotR refrence because your face lights up and you start giggling... *Me? Guilty? Nahhh...* *shifty eyes*

-You tell LotR jokes to everyone you see, even if they don't get them. If they don't, you spend some good quality time explaining.

I am a firm believer that the Jokes thread should be revived [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img] If only I had a joke...

Don't meant to dampen thy parade, but it's Gil-Galad WAS AN elven king." I should know, I've memorised it.

when you get annoyed when people don't pronounce the double "n" in "Yavanna".

When nobody you know says Yavanna so you try to make them say it just so you can shout at them and then post about it here. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

Hannon le, mellyn nin! [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] I sure hope a theater near you is doing that, Amarantha; if not, you're always welcome to come join me at The Commons!

Okay, this was actually kinda creepy:

I fell asleep last night, but I forgot to take my Ring off before I went to bed (I was *that* tired...), so I still had the chain around my neck. Then I woke up in the middle of the night and my hand had clenched around the Ring while I slept. [img]smilies/eek.gif[/img]

My brother just got the Bionicle: Mask of Light movie, and I was able to liken most of the characters and the main plot to LotR. Go me! [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

Abedithon le,
