You Know You're Obsessed With Lord Of The Rings When...

Ok, this is already a thread. But that one is really old, so I decided to post it again as sort of a continuation.
I'll start us off.
You know you're obsessed with Lord Of The Rings when...
-you refuse to use paper because of the ents.
-you have no human friends anymore, just trees.
-you try getting your dad to grow a beard, just so you can make him look more like a dwarf.
-when talking to friends, you always manage to get the conversation back to a lord of the rings related subject.
-you know elvish.
-grow your hair out and braid, so you can look more like an elf.
-you make everyone you know watch it.
-you take up archery.
-you decide to get a horse and name it Shadowfax.
-get incredibly annoyed with spell check because it keeps saying all of the LOTR names are wrong. I'm tired of the red lines!

Anyway, i'm sorry if these are stupid. I'm pretty sure they are. My friend and I just randomly came up with them. And just so you know, only about half of these are true so yeah. I'm not crazy...

White Tree

When you started writing your own Tolkien-inspired book
When your BFF has become obsessed too, and written a 22 page paper for Creative Writing class about wood-elves
You go on here in school instead of doing your work

You react with deep deep suspicion when a black squirrel shows up on your property.

I'd be freaking out all the time. My city has lots of black squirrels, especially around the park.

You're on here in school for the THIRD time today

Well, they are a bit more common now than they were then (given the inroads the grey squirrel has made into Britain and the corresponding decline of the red squirrel) Though I understand they were even more common in America at the time of the European Colonization (black have an advantage in heavy woods (where there is a lot of shadow, grey have an edge in more open woodland).

You curse because you have a whole hour to just "work" and your computer is right there and the internet actually works, and you can't go on the Downs because the school security system thingy blocks it since apparently it's a game.

I am actually writing a translation of The Hobbit into Filipino. Futile exercise as we speak English rather well... but hey, it's a worthwhile hobby And yes, I am obsessed. Dunno though when I'd start translating LOTR.

When you start incorperating LOTR into youe everyday speech, saying things like: "You have about as much chance of that working as the Balrog has of passing Gandalf"

When you are having a huge arguement with your girlfriend because she refuses to read and see the plagiarism in the Inheritance Cycle.

When you're playing Dragon City on Facebook and are naming all of your dragons after Lord of the Rings characters, including the mildly obscure characters such as Hama.

poshmissy is still gossiping in the Green Dragon.
You know you're obsessed with the Lord of the Rings when you named your sons/daughthers after the characters of it. Or to complete , you will even name your pets after the characters too. That's awesome and unique.
