Yes... Lush has made me jealous of Russians. And when my friend told me she wanted to go to Duke, I laughed for the thought of her and Lush bumping into each other.

Another thing: I cannot hear the song "Lush Life" without thinking, "that does sound a lot like Lush's life." Lol, sorry Lush! [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

Or, in my case, you keep saying to yourself, "I'm very Russian! Just like Lush!" Sometimes you say that out loud...in inappropriate places, which draws some interesting looks.

Or you have posted more than thrice on this board, come to think of it.

If you have posted less than thrice, if you not only agree with most of what was said here, you have made at least five contributions.

The way people use words in here has changed your speech pattern in real life (I never used to say "thrice" before, for example).

I've ALWAYS used thrice, and what a good word it is too! Here's another one:

You are being very unsocial and sitting at the computer while you aunt and uncle whom you only see five times a year or so are sitting at the dinner table at the other end of the room chatting amiably with the rest of the family.

I would prefer the nickname of "Lush" to be associated with something other than "mad," though then again, 'tis better than "bad" or "sad."

My dream of becoming a BD commodity has been achieved in some circles, I believe. [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

Per the forum, you know you are addicted when you tell your friends: "I can quit whenever I want to!" A statement that made my roommate laugh.

This happens to me, but in a different way. There is this one person on my track team who has a customized sweatshirt, and since her name is Rachel *I think* or something like that. On the back she has "RAE" on it, so everytime I see it, I always think of Raefindel, because everyone calls her Rae for short. It actually makes me think of putting Gorwingel on the back of my sweatshirt, or getting a Barrow-Downs T-shirt and wearing it while I work out. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

I have "Brinn" on the back of my Honor Society sweatshirt. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

I've heard people at my school laugh at my sweatshirt, which I find funny because they don't know me at all. For all they know, it could be my real name (considering they called me, "the girl with the sweatshirt that says 'Brinn'")! Anyways, I don't think there's anything weird about putting my screen name on a sweatshirt, considering that my friends put Star Wars names on the back of theirs. [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img]

Unluckily, all the people I know have boring names, not LotR-ish at all. If I get older and have kids, I might make their first names be LotR, probably, but definitely their middle names. Now there's a sign of addiction! [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

You have a friend named "Katie". You almost spelled her name "Kkate" the other day. Welcome to my world.

The same day (or night, rather), you have a dream that the Mod's get fed up with the Forum (as I'm sure you Mod's do), and abandoned us forever. Well, Mary-Sues took over the Forum, and all there messages consisted of one word typed over and over again for an entire computer screen-worth of words. You know what the word was? The word was "doom"...very fitting, in my opinion.

I don't usually laugh out loud, but that got one from me. Ah, me. Burra's a guy. Though that "what is burrahobbit?" question is so terribly tempting....

Anyway, yes I am addicted, it's true. I know it's really bad when I spend more time writing an RPG post than I do working on my novel. That happens all too often.

I've done the wee-hours-of-the-morning thing very, very often.

I've hid my screenname in shame.

I've spent hours searching for cool avatars and pithy quotes. I even found an avatar for someone else.

I almost called a friend mien schatz even though I have no idea what that means. I just know Lush uses it...

And Elvish screennames which were a mystery to me at first now roll off my mental tongue. And let me see... Marileangolfornium? Oh, close... I don't think that's right though.

I would, however, rather be addicted to a website than so petty as to log on just to criticize other people for it. Talk about a real waste of time...

Well, if it's such a waste of time, why are you here? kymii666, I would strongly suggest you getting offline. And staying there. Or at least leaving this site alone. BTW, what's with "Charles"?

Charles is his/her imaginary friend. Kymii, you have seventeen posts here, you evidently have a sense of humour, if a slightly twisted one....so why have you spent every one of those posts blagging the Downs and its members? Live and learn, or just leave.

10. Your wife threatens you with Divorce [ for the tenth time] and you are reminded of JRRT's line in the Biography ' somethings you have to be willing ot fight over'.

9. It is of course your default screen on the pc, although you may perhaps spend too much mental time pondering which forum should be there...

8. your children roll their eyes when they see the green and black...*DAD can you please.....*


7.All of your M-E books are within arms reach of the computer so you can respond as effortlessly as possible, well most, you, of course have to many for them all to be that close...


6.YOu can far too easily find 10 of these!


5.You start wondering what BD'ers live wherever you are traveling to [even though the admins don't exactly approve [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]]

4. You realize with [img]smilies/eek.gif[/img], that it is your favorite social circle - by far.

3.Too not appear so much of a fool you actually have 2 english handbooks, a thesaurus and a dictionary right where valuable ME-E book real estate should be on the desk [thanks maril and bethberry [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img] for the gentle chastening, I hope I have improved at least somewhat].

2. You decide to try and right the ultimate guide to M-E and you can immediately think of 2 fellow downsman to aid you...

1. Becuase of the Downs you actually start trying to write the thing! [with the aforementioned helpers agreeing of course, how could they resist - they too are BD'ers ? [img]smilies/cool.gif[/img]
0. you are no longer puzzled by Burrahobbit, he has become a comfortable [if predictably odd] part of the BD ambience *lindil pauses ponders using the 6th emoticon from the left - decides it is below his extremely exaggerated sense of dignity and types this instead].
--------------------------------------------

earlier it was said: "Don't keep us from knowing if you are currently on line! Because I always like knowing who's on when. Besides I am not going to be bashful about being on this website a lot."

heh heh,BTW.... the mods can see who's hiding so it is useless, cause then we all just talk about you on Mod Gorthad [no we don't really - actually we hardly communicate at all amongst ourselves [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img]] but we can see who's trying to hide from Who's online...


Quote:
(Ghastly Hobbits beckon with skeletal fingers):
"Come, Hilde [*lindil substitutes own name*]. Come to the RPG Rooooooms! Why, they hardly take any of your time at allllll. Just a few minutes a day. You know you want tooooooooo..."
you mightly resist the temptation, even of the now famous Entish Bow....you resist,
you resist,

YOU RESISIT!.....you res..............

OK just open page of one RPG, that's all...*lindil slides down into the abyss of one final straw breaking the camel's back of too many M-E projects and intersts...AAHHHHHHHHHHHHhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.......*

You have the hardest time on the National Day of Silence not coming on here, even though you've restricted yourself to no verbal communication, and nearly give in, trying to say "well, people might not read it as soon as I post it, so maybe it doesn't count". I had will power, so I didn't come in, luckily, but it was so hard! Not actually speaking was very easy, but not coming on here...yeesh...

1. Becuase of the Downs you actually start trying to write the thing! [with the aforementioned helpers agreeing of course, how could they resist - they too are BD'ers ?

Well, we don't have them in Wisconsin... or at least nobody told me. [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img] Hmmm... *eyes radio which is tuned to a rather loud rock station, feeling suddenly guilty*

aerandir! i find a lot right about myself! and brinniel- 100% harharhar! i'd like to add some of my own:
1. when your mom screams, calling you to get off the computer and you don't hear it. after all, your deeply engrossed with the BD that you don't notice, and the fact that you don't hear her a tinnie-winnie bit because you're playing the soundtrack of TTT on the computer and earphones are glued into your ears [img]smilies/eek.gif[/img] she(mom) freaks out finding you stuck to the computer and scolds you with another littany of blah. then before you sleep (which is about 4am) you cry thinking you've lost a lot of minutes away from the downs. [img]smilies/frown.gif[/img] saaaad! then you wake up the following morning, but before you even brush your teeth... you open your computer and check on the downs.

Maika, if you're implying that you've "found a cure" you should market it to the spouses of all the married addicts. You'd make a mint!
