Mother's Day LOL!!

*This is one of those things where you look back and say, "I can't believe that happened..."

My two grandmothers, brother, mom and dad were sitting at the table eating dinner. I wanted the mashed potatoes, so I said to my mother, "Please pass the taters."
My mother evidently didn't hear what I'd said: "What?"
I answered, louder and enunciating, "Po-ta-toes."
As she passed them to me, it struck me what I'd said. I wanted to burst out laughing, but no one would have understood even if I had explained, so I'm doing my laughing by sharing it with you folks! Thank you for your time! [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

That's funny Sam! I'm starting to think that way too, and I'm happy about it. This past Wednesday, A friend of mine (whom I call Pippin) and I had to put something back into someone's car. I had the keys but could not unlock the door. We started playing and saying things like "Edro! Edro!" Well, she said "Mellon" and the door opened!!!

A few weeks ago, I stepped on a piece of cereal and immediately said "I think I've broken something". Remember in the movie when Merry sat on the carrot??
haha
Whenever I see something pertaining to "Hey Diddle Diddle, the Cat and the Fiddle" I think about the song I sung at Bree!! I laugh but no one understands
My dad was frying bacon the other day, and I thought of when Bilbo was taken from the fire by the eagle and he says "Now I know what a piece of bacon feels like when it is picked out of the pan by a fork and put back on the shelf." One of the dwarves says that eagles aren't like forks and Bilbo says "No, not a bit like storks...forks I mean." I started to laugh.

Whenever I cook bacon I cry out 'NICE CRISPY BACON!' and laugh maniacally.

I don't know why. Merry's hardly a maniac but I still do it.

Lord of the Rings has poisoned our minds.
I can't see the name Sam without thinking about Samwise. And I was watching this show. And the mother called her child precious. I laughed out loud.

One other crazy thing I do is I check people's ears to see if they're pointy at all. Now if that's not crazy I don't know what is.

Rose, I check for pointy ears, too! [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] (I think it's funny watching how people react.)

And Samwise, that was funny [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]. I laughed out loud... and got a weird look from my mom.

I do that! I also have checked my own ears many times to see if they might be the least bit pointier than most peoples... as if looking at them enough times would change them! I would love pointy ears!

My nephew has got one pointed ear. And he's blond and slender and quite elvish-looking (imo). Just one detail out of character - a black eye renewed almost every week. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

Lol I examine everyone at my school's ears and I get slightly jealous when I see someone with pointy ears (particularly if they're tall and blonde).
Ah who am I kidding! I get really jealous!!!!

Pointy ears? Bursts out crying. Why cant god give me those pointy ears??? Think about it those people walking out there with pointy ears don’t care about LOTR and they hate their pointy ears, and here we all are wishing we had pointy ears! Well I also check for pointy ears! And yes everyone thinks I am weird when I check but they already think I am really weird because of all the other weird things I do, lol does that make sense? Another thing I do that makes me think I am crazy is; My English teacher calls the class her Precious, and the moment she says it I think ‘Oh LOTR’! And sometimes in the mornings I say ‘amrun’ (which is ‘morning’ in elvish) to my dad and he looks at me, lifts his eyebrow and walks of! I always find myself saying elvish things the other day I said ‘Amin mela lle’ to my boyfriend meaning I love you and I didn’t even notice I was saying it in elvish, ok so that is a blonde thing. Oh back to the pointy ears subject! I do modelling (well sometimes) and I had to wear a black dress and have my hair tied up and then I looked at the camera, then the picture made my ears look pointy and I have blonde hair so that is one of my favourite pictures! I am willing to send it to anyone [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]!

You must be an elven princess?

As for 'pointy' ears, I think much of the artwork being done of elves really overdo this aspect. I can't say I look for pointy ears, but I do at times say 'Namarie' when ending a conversation or leaving or such.

Well as a matter of fact my ears are pointy too (as said by 2people who have seen LotR) but that does not change the fact that my sister does not see anything elvish in me (nor do I) she just calls me a boggy and that is all and I hate all of my pictures except for one .
But I think I do not quite remember all so good but me and my sister make jokes like these all the time . [img]smilies/tongue.gif[/img]

My mom and I were listening to an Oldies song call "Stand by Me" or "Someone to Lean On" (can't remember which) and Dad wanted to know who wrote it. It was written by Sam Cooke and Mom and I looked at each other and burst out laughing hysterically. Dad, of course, didn't get the joke. [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img] [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]
