Well at least Sapphire stopped dying.

You know you're obsessed when:
~You do something LOTR-ish in class and the teachers roll their eyes and say "It's just them."
~You make a nameplate in I.A. and you put your middle-earth name on it
~You take your hobbit walking-stick to school
~You plan to be Merry and Pippin for a day with your friend
~You refer to the mean guy in your class as Lurtz
~You write back and forth to your friend on paper ways to kill Lurtz
~You yell out randomly, "Do the Wave for Boromir the Disco King!!!!"

BTW, I have done all of these. Oh, yes. There will be more. Just you wait. Muwahahahahaa....

i am amazed at how many of these relate to me, should i be scared? no way! with anything else i would be, but this IS the lord of the rings!
okay, you know that you're addicted when:
1. your friends try to have a decent conversation, and you somehow turn it lotr related.
2. you wake up in the morning and think, "i wish i had no school, then i could watch AND read the lord of the rings, all day long!"
3. middle-earth is real, this is just a dream to wake out of. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]
4. memorizing dwarvish runes was child's play, it's those elven accents on vowels you have to work on!
5. when in school, you find yourself playing the movies over and over in your head, just to get through the day, (incidently, that works super well!)
6. when the guys (or girls) in your class try to open up your pencil case to "borrow" something, you say the famous line, "YOU CAN NOT PASS!" and it works.
7. you never thought you were addicted, you knew it all along! [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]
8. when running in gym class, you murmer just out of ear shot, "keep breathin', that's the key, whoa!"
9. in gym again, when doing beep tests, to keep your friends going and not colapse, you scream at the top of your lungs, "nuro lim, _____!!!"
10. everywhere you look, SOMETHING reminds you of that wonderful place!
this is me in a nutshell, what can i say!?? [img]smilies/tongue.gif[/img]

Eressie Ailin & Arfangwen,
Sorry! I meant no offence! Actually, I live in Texas, too, but I don't like it here inspite of the fact that I've lived here forever. I'd rather be in North Carolina with my mother's family & my boyfriend. I don't suppose it's Texas its self, I just hate my town mostly.

[img]smilies/frown.gif[/img] Sorry to offend you!

Today in history when my teacher said, "Think of all you know about the Civil War." The first thing that came to my mind was the Battle of Five Armies. Worse yet I almost suggested it! [img]smilies/eek.gif[/img]

Yes, I was having a sleepover with my friend who is also a LOTR crazed BDer, and we kept on shouting "DO THE WAVE FOR BOROMIR THE DICO KING!!!" in the middle of the night, because we could fall asleep. I was surprized when my parents didn't rush into the room and start screaming at us about waking them up! [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

We also imagined random scenes from LOTR that same night... we are obsessed.

Another thing is, that one time I was riding in the car with my mom, and we see this sign that says: Queenswood gas station. I read it as Mirkwood gas station. LOL!

i usually leave the message of "im pedbeth le" on my friends answering machin. i saw her today when she was working and i blurted that out and then i asked her if she knew what it was. she said she was not good enough yet.....

your spelling in Elvish is better than in English.

you use LOTR as an excuse for anything...

Question

I know I'm obsessed when...

1.I Wear the One Ring on a chain, and scream "They're after my preciousss" when someone asks to see it

2.I speak elvish unconciously

3.Half of what I say are quotes from the movie (the other half is Quenya)

4.I stayed home just to watch FoTR again

5.I say "there is a fell voice in the air" whenever my least favorite teacher speaks

6. Whenever I don't know a question on a test, I make up an answer relating to Tolkien

7.I have the script to FoTR and TTT which I spoofed and made "Lord of The Ties" after seeing multiple pictures of Elijah wearing the same tie at many, many different events.

8. I made a shrine to Frodo Baggins as a subprofile.

9.My website is devoted to life in the Shire. (and other LoTR graphics)

10. I saved all my lunch money so I could get enough to go to the premiere

and a whole bunch of other stuff which shall not be mentioned

I go by Tinuviel, I am going to legally change my name to Tinuviel, I have published poetry under that name, to which I respond better than to my real name, and as soon as I have the money, I'm going to have plastic surgery and have Elven ears for real.

OK! Nobody try to top Tinuviel unless you REALLY can. That'll be hard!

Oh! Know you're obsessed when-

At age 2, you stop eating your veggies & wheaties. When mommy asks, "Why?", you say you wanna be a hobbit when you grow- I mean DON'T grow up.

As for being obsessed...

How many other people have an Elvish name for their AIM screen name?

While shopping with a friend (thankfully familiar at least with the movies): I'm sorting through the hangers on a clearance rank and randomly say, "Back, you devils!" - apropos absolutely nothing. I still can't figure out where that came from!

And I've practiced writing Tengwar letters during math recitation, and I write quotes and Elvish names on top of my notes nearly every day.

You know you're obsessed with LOTR when you:
~name your pets after LOTR characters
~give people a special name involving LOTR to your friends
~insist that ppl call you your elvish(hobbit) name
~call someone a Took (or Fool of a Took) when they do something stupid
~yell to your sibling "You Shall Not PASS!!!" when she/he would like to get by and you are blocking them

Sorry if these were already done [img]smilies/eek.gif[/img] [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img] [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img]

Your friend steals the one ring and you promptly tackle her and scream "I'll pull a gollum and bite off your finger! I really will!"
You say to your friend, "If I'm an elf doesn't that make you an Elendil?"
Every day you ask Elendil (she did give me permission!), "So once my hair grows out you will do my hair elvish won't you?"

Texas is HORRIBLE HORRIBLEHORRIBLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I have nothing against Texans, but I hate Texas.

Anyway...
I don't have a ME name for my AIM screen name, but that's because I don't have AIM. I do have tinuviel as part of my email.

Something funny.
There's a theater near where I live that starts showing movies about two weeks after they're out of other theaters. My little sister, not Durlossiel, just turned 11. I'm taking her to a movie instead of buying something. I asked her what movie she wanted to see, then immediately suggested TTT. She gave me the strangest look and said, "That, again?"
What did I do?

Oh yeah. Guilty to all of the above from page one on.

FINALLY! I found someone who agrees with me about Tx. Hi, Tinuviel. Sorry Tx lovers!

Anywho, my cousin has a ferret. She was going to name it Smeagol, but it's a girl so she named it smeaglet.

What is "Do the wave for Boromir the Disco King?"

What about wearing an elven-cloak everywhere so that you're know not by your name, but as "the one with the cape."

And I didn't get to see TTT tonight after all. *sobs hysterically*

I have no comment on the Texas/Mordor thing, as I've never been there.

This afternoon my little sister and my dad came into my room. This is what I said to them:

"This is no bedroom, but a graveyard! You should never have come here. Get out, get out!!!"

...followed by a few more 'Get out!'s until they did.

I went to the prom and had a blast. In my Galadriel dress i shouted out things like the old " do the wave for borimor the disco king," and "Frodo Lives." I met some other Tolkienists, one at the resturant, and the other at the prom. Frnkly we started to shout out random LOTR things. We also tried beating up my date cause he called Frodo gay.

you can have a conversation about LOTR with a total stranger and the rest of your friends have no idea what you are talking about.

In the game of Chinese Cheakers(which the whole of the art department is hooked) you say random lines from both movie and book. especially when the ceramic students are checking the kilns," fly you fools," Then you name the youngest member of the group a little kid Laliath, for being the silliest kid on earth.

They get you coffee to shut you up about LOTR.

Hehe..and:
1) Your friends positively refuse to speak with you about boys, movies, blond hair, hairy feet, books, or anything related because we ALL know where THAT will lead to.
2) Your friends tell you they do not want to know anything more about LotR before you even take a breath to start chattering your endless stream of words.
3) You consider yourself bilingual; after all, you DO speak Elvish. Fluently. (Actually that makes me quatrelingual, English, Spanish, French AND Elvish.)
4) When your friends point and scream 'there he is!' you turn around just in case.
5) You want a tattoo of the Fellowship of Nine, because the experience was too wonderful to forget.
6) You know all the cinema employees by name, and they all know you by name.
7) You have added various other meals to your list, elevensies, after lunch, second breakfast....
8) You cannot count on your fingers the many times you've seen the movie.
9) When ordering any drink you automatically ask if it comes in pints.
10) You can tell how many times 'Frodo' is said in the movie. (98)
11) You know the proper Elvish name for Legolas is. (Laegolas)
12) You become irritated if anyone you ask has NOT seen the movie. Insulting.
14) Any other movie is out of the question, it is considered betrayal.
15) You walk barefoot, insisting that 'Hobbits can do it, so can you.'
16) When you see the movie (again) you can quote it word for word. (I amar prestar aen, the world is changed, han mathon ne nen.....)
17) You are insulted when someone calls you 'Human'.
18) You have pointy ears surgically attached.
19) You stare at the birdbath, trying to see 'things that are, things that were, and things that have not yet come to pass.'
20) You cried during the movie. All ten times you've seen it.
21) You are on the LotR DVD/Video waiting list, just waiting for August.
22) You have or are trying to get all LotR merchandise available, after all you NEED, the action figures, posters, games, cards....
23) You are learning how to shoot a bow and arrow.
24) You have hurt someone trying to learn how to shoot the bow and arrow.
25) You have hurt someone trying to learn how to shoot the bow and arrow with 2 arrows at once.
26) You have a scratch on your cheek just like Arwen. Purposefully.
27) You run around in the woods screaming "Ho! Tom Bombadil." And you provide anyone you run into with mounds of food and protection from mean oak trees.
28) If you had a horse his name would be Asfaloth or Shadowfax.
29) If you had a pony his name would be Bill or Fatty Lumpkin.
30) You spent days making an Arwen costume for Halloween, but are insulted when people say they don't know who Arwen is.
31) When someone refuses to hand over the remote control you scream, "preccciousss, we must have our preciousssss."
32) You have scared away people with your Gollum imitation.
33) You envy "little people" because they most resemble Hobbits. You call them Hobbits - they don't like it. You don't care.
34) You are positive that your next-door neighbour is a Hobbit.
35) You plan to name your kids like the Hobbits, Drank, son of Frank or Lorence, son of Torence.

Well, I've done #2, and my gollum imitation on various things, and some of the others I've seriously thought about or else done in another way (i.e. doing the dishes: take a milk bottle, fill it up..."The mirror shows many things. Things that were..."). Only I already have a white horse, and her name is Lady Glesen. I can't change it. [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img]

P.S. Do you really have surgically attached pointy ears?? [img]smilies/eek.gif[/img]

Whew, that was funny. You know you're obsessed with LOTR when:

1. Your gulity of everything posted on this thread

2. You're no longer mad about being short because you make a really great hobbit.

3. You start acting like a hobbit becuase you're short.

4. On weekends you try and have all the meals a hobbit would eat, and end up having to take a large amount of pepto-bismal at around midnight.

5. No one talks to you about movies, the oscars, elves, dwarfs, anything remotly fantasy related, good books, or south park, but that's for different reason...

Your LOTR friens think you're TO obsessed
Guilty! Mostly because anytime I'm on the phone it's "Guess what happened on the BDs today!" yeeeeah... That's me...... [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

And how in the world can Texas be even remotely related to Mordor?!? It is the root of all ringies! How on earth could that be bad?!? Unless you live in Creekwater, or Colorado you can't say you hate Texas! There's nothing to hate! Open range, clear skys(unless you live in Austin, then the weather changes every ten mins.), horse ranches, LOTR obsessed youth groups...... [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

Did I mention that I found a picture of Shiprock, New Mexico and thought it was Mordor.... guess were I live.... But Texas is pretty hot and barren ( at least the place i have been there) and trying to do orienteering in winter weight fatigues was just torture.

YEAH! *high-fives Arafangwen* Texas is wonderful! Honest, I've lived my whole life here, actually have traveled many other places, and still want to live here for the rest of my life. There's no Dark Lord here! [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

Yes, well, that's my contribution to the Mayhem for today... [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img]

I almost did that when I dressed up as a Hobbit for Halloween!

WHEN A PSYCHIATRIST SAYS THAT YOU ARE A HAIRLINE AWAY FROM PSYCHOSIS BECAUSE YOU ARE DEEPLY OBSESSED WITH MIDDLE EARTH. YOU ARE BECOMING QUITE AUTISTIC, YOU HAVE YOUR OWN WORLD. THE THING IS THAT YOU SHARE IT WITH CERTAIN PEOPLE TOO. PEOPLE HERE... [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img] [img]smilies/eek.gif[/img] [img]smilies/eek.gif[/img]
