14 or so: You've tried numerous time to explain Ewan MacGregor's eyeliner to various people, and they Just Don't Get It. And they don't even beGIN to understand the Balrog's eyeliner.

Some just too true for me right now:

Even though you´re REALLY sick and can basically think, you drag yourself in front of your computer and say to yourself: "I am not dizzy. I will not through up. I will write an RPG post!"

As all your friends have seem to have overlooked your absence in school, you hope you´ll get the appreciation and pity you need here instead

Ah this is too funny!

Quote:
Your colleagues visit you at lunchbreak, see the green-and-black screen, and ask, "How's Bilbo?"
I Almost laughed out loud when I saw that! I don't get "How's Bilbo?" but rather "Find anything good?"

But I don't have a problem...I can quit any time. I can go for a day without wondering if I'm missing anything.... Just because 99 percent of lunch is a picnic on the Downs and the other 1 percent is on Amazon seeing if I can get a hard back copy of HoME Vol. 2. (And I resent actually having to eat!) And just because my family feel I'm a wee bit preoccupied....

As long as I don't get into RPG I should be OK, right? Or is that no RPG before noon?

Here are some of mine. Another good thread, Lush. I shouldn't stay away as long as I have. Bad Elf Queen!

Top 10 signs you're addicted to anything LOTR, including BD!
10. You take your LOTR action figures to work.
9. You frequently check the BD site at work, especially to read anything Samwise has posted. I've missed you, Samwise!
8. Your hubby whines that he can't use the computer because you're writing yet another chapter of your fan fiction.
7. You keep putting your One Ring on in hopes that it will make you invisible.
6. Clapping loudly when the vicar of your church refers to the new informational class as the E.L.F. class (ELF stands for Episcopal Life & Faith).
5. You refer to anything as "my precious", and frequently use the word "nasssty".
4. Checking BD frequently to see what those silly hobbits are up to.
3. Carefully looking at a tree before leaning up against it for fear that you'll wake an Ent.
2. Hiding the CC bill from your hubby so that he won't see how much more LOTR stuff you bought from Amazon.com
And my number one sign that I am addicted to LOTR:
I recite The Lord's Prayer in Quenya at church.

Yes, I am an addict! :-D

Well, I can add one up, methinks

"your office PC monitor is luckily turned away from everybody else in the room, so you can type whatever you're typing now on the BD instead of calculating the increase in number of credit cards sold over the last year (whatever else there it may be) you're supposed to be calculating right away"

Ack Birdland "DON'T TEMPT ME!" (I feel myself slipping .... Maybe if I just linger on that forum alittle...see what it's like.)

You know you're addicted when:
  • [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] it's 7AM and you've been to check the Downs twice. Once at home and once at work.

    [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] when you are trying to cut and paste a door's center panel into another drawing at work and someone's avatar shows up instead!

    [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] Everytime a CADManager guild e-mail gets sent to you with the heading "employee internet access" you start getting a real sense of panic.

Here's another one from recent experience:

When, having finally logged-off and gone to bed at some unearthly hour in the morning, you lie in bed trying to work out the answer to LePetitChoux's excellent cryptic clue in the Words in Words thread ... and then when inspiration strikes, you get out of bed, log on and post what you hope is the answer ...

Yeah, same Saucepan man. Im wincing at how scarily familiar some of these, one in particular is seeming....one which no way am I going to mention, for risk of eternal humiliation...

But I can say, that going on the downs is not the very first thing I do.


Its the very last.

These are way too familiar for my liking...I do occasionally just sit and refresh the page, waiting for someone to come along and post on a thread...obsessed? Maybe. And I am developing a really bad habit of coming online for 15 minutes before school in the morning. [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img]

Ha ha!!! I go on before school, and between classes, and after school. I'm home-schooled!!! Today is my third day of home-schooling and...this...is...the...life. [img]smilies/redface.gif[/img] I'm sorry that some of you guys are banned from the downs. That must be real hell. My girlfriend is banned too, and people I think are starting to think that she's dead in the RPG. She hasn't posted there for like, two weeks. Oh well. Aralaithiel, so true...so true.

I can identify with way too many of these!

I had a Barrow Downs moment this morning. Watching the weather forecast, the BBC puts in some random towns on the map, which change every day. Well today, they were Oxford and Barrow in Furness. My mind jumped straight away to you-know-what!

I have almost the same case as all of you who are banned...

Whenever my mom [or dad] entered the room, they would always see something green on the screen w/ a black background. And they would always see me reply to something, and they were worried I got into a cult or something because of the colors [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img] . I don't blame them-I do spend alot of time here, and I'm always cooped up in my room doing homework or on the internet on the Barrow-Downs. But then I explained everything-and I didn't need to show all the FAQs about the forum. :breathes: They ALMOST had to ban me because I had spent so much time here.

Yet, another thing restrains me from writing lengthy replies to great topics: SCHOOL. Yep, that's right school. The 3rd quarter of 8th grade is almost done [and it's the hardest of all 4 quarters of school]. Well, I'd best get back to studying Romeo and Juliet...

I've done that up to an hour before. Then I realize that it's 4:00 in the morning and I have church in six hours. [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img]

I have gotten banned from the computer before and it's a terrible, terrible thing. Last week I spent so much time on one RPG, my mom threatened to forbid me from doing anymore RPGs again (I was going to bed at 11:00 on school nights). But luckily that was only a threat and she has not threatened me that since. *wipes sweat off forehead*

I must come here more often than I realise, even my sister who is currently at university knows of my extensive visits here. I suspect that she thinks it's a fad and will soon go away, ah ha! I think not!

I am homeschooled too, (have been for eight years!) and it is the life! You can get on the computer at anytime! Bwahahaha!!! But it's not so good when your three siblings are all clamouring to get their turn at the computer... And your mother takes away your computer privilages... And your are stuck with your family every...single...day! Not so good.

Another sign: You start calling yourself by the name of your current RPG character, and start refering to all the heroic battles you have taken part in.

I started to worry when I handed in a paper at school which said 'written by Vanwalossien' and my teacher didn't even have to look at the handwriting to see whose paper it was...

And I spend almost as much time on imdb as on the Downs, trying to find the answer to Eärendil's latest quote in the Actor's Quotes... And still I never find out...

Bwahahaha! That´s...funny. (Or scary, have I done it AGAIN?). [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img] [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

Anyway, here are two signs I came up with:
# When you realise you have copied and pasted loads and loads of BD-conversations, and printed them out.
# You can spell Marileangorifurnimaluim. Without cheating.

Not necessarily for BD, but LotR in general:

You start mistaking words. For instance, we drove by a sign, and I looked at it and screamed, "ELVES!!!!" My Mom looked over at me in a very strange way, and I looked closer. It said Elders.

or...

You are typing your e-mail address. At the end, you mistakenly type "ent" insted of "net."

or...

You can make anything have a LotR connection. For instance: You are flossing your teeth. As you floss, you begin to wonder what orcs would look like if they had access to floss and a toothbrush.

Sad to say, I have done all of these. Oh what we do for the things we love! [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

Here is my provision for ths topic.
*After convincing you sibling(s) to join, they become so afraid of you they make their friends join.*

Afterthought-Maybe I should try the RPG's. [img]smilies/evil.gif[/img]

This is so weird, I can relate with so many of these things! Its almost scary! Lets see.. what else:

Every night you write notes on your RPG character, rather than reading your wider reading assignment book which is due in 2 weeks

First thing you do when you get home is check BD

Yes, I'm proud to say, I'm Obssessed!

-When truly bored, playing name games with the downs and seeing whether eg. you can think of a member of the downs, or an RP character etc, for every letter of the alphabet.

-At lunchtimes, and in lessons (mainly latin I think), instead of working, drawing up a new avatar...

I promise you that is not me. The Daughter of Gollum and Shelob, hang your head in shame...nah, tis a very cool avatar.
