. . . you occupy time on long, boring car rides by looking out of the window at the trees and deciding which ones look like Ents.

Wait. Only one thing? My Arda-obsession is insufficient! I must commit ritual LotRuku now.

...When you kill precious time by answering Tolkien-related questions on WikiAnswers.

After the quality of questions I found there I appreciate our clean shiny "educated" Downs so much more.

It's quite hilarious and sad at the same time. People ask things like "how do you write like J R R Tolkien?" and "What path fif J.R.R. Tolkien take to reach his goals?" (these are real questions! ) The word spelling does not exist. Neither does research.

This happened today, for real. It's a bit of a story.

I was washing the windows on the second floor of my house. Some of them I could do on both sides without much trouble, but for others I had to stand halfway out the window to reach certain spots. Just beneath one window there is a wide cornice, so I stood on it, since that is more comfortable than leaning out the window. And then, I don't know what I was thinking, but I closed the window behind myself. And then I realised that I locked myself out, standing on the roof, two storeys up.

Now, this is where my obsession with LOTR becomes evident: the first thing that I mentally called myself was ninnyhammer. Out of all the names I could use. I could definitely pick a more colourful one. But ninnyhammer was the first that came to mind. My obsession has deep roots, it seems.

I'm so obsessed with LotR that I've rubbed off on my brother. Here's a conversation we had recently:

Seth: Can you not wait until December?
Me: Well, I have to wait until December. We can't speed up time. Why?
Seth: I can't wait until December.
Me: Why is that?
Seth: Well, you know...
Me: No I don't.
Seth: The Hobbit movie comes out in December.
Me: I know that I'm excited about that, but I didn't think that you were.
Seth: Well, I am.
Me: Well, I'm not going to take you to see it until you actually finish reading the book.
Seth: I'm going to finish reading it!

The Eye

When you dragged your friend into the public library and used his card (Because you lost yours) to check out The Treason of Isengard and the extended VHS version of FOTR, even though you own the regular VHS version
AND he gives you permission to steal them because he knows how obsessed you are, and he doesn't mind paying the fine

When you got your best friend obsessed, and are letting her borrow your copies of the movies in an attempt to in turn make her boyfriend obsessed

When you randomly walk around in school holding The Two Towers movie, and manage to talk your english teacher into playing it once everyone finished their final exam, and you had a half an hour left. (Unfortunately, she couldn't get the VCR to work)

When you end up having conversations with a kid that you extremely dislike, merely because he is the only one genuinely interested in your LOTR rants, despite the fact that he only knows the movies, and doesn't criticize your crude maps of Middle-Earth

Thumbs up

When you watch The Two Towers, pretending that you don't have exams the next morning.

Gandalf: *pops out of the ground* YOU SHALL NOT PASS!
Me: What the heck?!?
Gandalf: Gotta go finish fighting the Balrog. Bye!
Me: *Stares at Kool-Aid* What the heck do they put in this stuff?

More like the legendarium in general...

When your younger brother asks you for a riddle, and knowing that you have to keep him occupied but feeling a lack of creativity you just restore to The Hobbit riddles.

When you and your family are joking about the hobbits forging the five One Ring-s during the Olympics opening ceremony. (And by Eru it was better tenfold than Vancouver's!)

Funny LOTR Story

I was paging through The Silmarillion with crescendo. and we were playing with bits of Elvish words to come up with cool Elven names. I don't recall exactly what she said, but I asked her what it meant, and she said; "sparkling twilight". I stared at her and said, "Think of what you just said." We both start laughing, and discard the name immediately.

For those who don't get it, the "vampires" in the Twilight Saga sparkle. It's awful.

When just finishing the Trilogy, the next day you and your obsessed sister want to watch it all over again.
It's a challenge to NOT quote the movie while watching

You sign your name in Quenya on all of your school papers.

When the teachers you had last year have to tell this year's teachers whose paper it is.

You go bowling with friends and spend most of your time changing the names of the players on the computer/screen/thingy to spell the team names as random Tolkien stuff (though I am guilty of a few GoT references too). At one point our team was called O.R.C.S., and each of the letters was the first of a random word. Then we figured out how to use the space bar and thus put 2 letters in the slot of one (as 2 initials), and had stuff like

PM
IE
PR
IR
NY

But at that point people got really creative and started putting stuff I would not write on this forum. But it was hilarious.


It was fun. The best part of bowling, I should say.

When your father tells you to turn the G**d*mned movie off and watch something normal

When he tells you to make some potatoes, and you reply "Po-tay-toes, boil 'em mash 'em, stick 'em in a stew"

When he says he wants some fish and chips, and you say "Some nice lovely golden chips with a nice piece of fried fish"

When you start watching LOTR, and the upstairs neighbors start blaring "We Will Rock You" because you have the volume so loud that they can hear it. (To which I sang along and blared "We Are The Champions" after the song was over. Queen rules.)

When you actually come on here to tell random people all of that

Oh, and when your sister (crescendo.), who also likes LOTR, refuses to watch the movies with you because you're saying EVERY LINE along with the characters.

When you're asked to make a short funny James Bond themed New Year script, and you end up making the script so that there are a bunch of agent helpers who all the time bow and say "at your service", and in the process their agent-Elrond () glasses keep falling off their faces...

Hobbit New Year, everyone! What? Typo? No.

I was at my boyfriend's house, and we watched Tokyo Babylon and Return of the King. All through ROTK, I was talking to his brother about LOTR books v. movies

On your five year old's list of words he can read are "Hobbit" and "Gandalf". And after looking at a book with lots of pictures of Dwarves, he is inspired to draw a big moustache and beard on his own face with green felt tip pen.

Thanks to Hookbill, Oddwen, Squatter, Agan, Greenie, Pom, Nog and Volo my head's been mostly in Middle-Earth for the last several days, and today I totally overdid myself by doodling Thorin and Azog (as opposed to the normal random spirals, lines, squares and half-formed flowers) at work.

When you start laughing at a The Hobbit meme in class so hard that the teacher comes over and yels at you for not typing your Lizzie Borden paper. (Just so you know, it was Thorin hugging Bilbo and saying "I thought I would actually keep my New Year's resolution this year... Never have I been so wrong!")

Your five year old sits there and in a Dalek voice says: "Hello, my name is Gollum!" and then: "Lord of the Rings is great!"

And when he has woken you up at 2am after a bad dream, he gets in your bed and at quarter to three in the morning starts singing "They're taking the Hobbits to Isengard".

[newbie here]

When to both impress and confuse your FaceBook friends, you use what little Quenya (language) and Tengwar (font) knowledge to post 'Merry Christmas' and 'Happy New Year' images on those days.

Of course, some will (in a good-natured way) accuse you of being a 'nerd'

The only mistake I made was assuming that they would ask me what the words actually *meant*, but none did

I'm not sure if this is a sign of obsession or rather just being pathetic and/or inventive, but...

Flatmate and I want to watch some Richard Armitage in black leather. We sit down on a mattress on the floor, but alas we need something to support the laptop with.
"I usually take random books from the shelf," flatmate says, "but it's one hell of a job to figure out how to get the piles even." She proceeds to rummage in my room, and comes soon back carrying some of my HoME copies. "So this time we'll have two identical piles!"

When you somehow manage to work LOTR into a discussion about Loki's daddy issues and Mjolnir.... still not quite sure how I pulled that off...

When, while going up on a ski lift, you introduce your friend (who just started LOTR) to the rest of the legendarium and how it works and stuff (and, incidentally, encourage him to take a look at the Downs ).

Oh, a newbie can't hurt! Hopefully he'll get into it!

When you're reading The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy and your brain somehow autocorrects Benjy the Mouse to Bilbo the Mouse...

My brother and I just got the LEGO Lord of the Rings game. Oh my Eru! It is fantastic. Besides being based almost solely on the films, the world is expansive and fun to explore. I bought Tom Bombadil to play yesterday and today got Radagast the Brown. I have barely been doing anything else for the past few days, and last night I dreamt of LEGO hobbits. Lord of the Rings was a first love of sorts, and I almost had forgotten how much I love it. It's funny how it took a LEGO video game to really get back to it.

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

1.You shout "Fly, you fools!" when you get tired of waiting in a line.
2. You write in Tengwar instead of English in your test.
3.You say your teacher is an orc for giving you an F for your test.(I once asked her why and she got very 'excited' if you take my meaning)
4.You sing your national song in Sindarin or Quenya.
5.You stay up all night searching for Earendil.
6.Thinking that going to the toilet as a quest.
7.and so on.....

My study teacher, whi I had two years ago for science, always asks me how my Elevensies was. (My school has lunch at about eleven o'clock) I also have his wife for my Latin teacher, so whenever I make a LOTR reference in Latin class, he hears about it.

When the predictive text function on your tablet's swipe keyboard opts for Elvish or LOTR actor names first. Brought home to me just now when Csokas was it's first choice for an everyday English word.

When you get mad at a friend for only having watched The Hobbit because of its actors.

I mean, I knew An Unexpected Journey would be crap. I only watched it because of the actors.

I have to admit, Benedict Cumberbatch has a hell of a voice. He'll make a great Smaug.

You have the dream where you're the wizard standing in for Gandalf and shout, "You will not Pass." And you have it over and over and over and over again.

And the falling stinks :P

White Tree You know your obsessed with LOTR when...

1. You refuse to play a band instrument for your schools instrumental program because every time you hear drums all you can think is... "drums in the deep" and "we cannot get out"

2. You start reading your two week old sister The Hobbit...

3. Instead of studying for a rather important test, you watch the entire Fellowship of the Ring extended version, and then when you get a bad grade on that test you say to yourself... "fool of a Took" (even though your name sounds nothing like Took), then realise you don't care about your test because it was such a good movie.

Before i read this thread i thought i was obsessed. When i read this thread i began to think i wasn't so bad. Now after posting on this thread i have decided i am offically obsessed.
