You are definatly obsessed! Good job but make sure that you have a reality check every once in a while!

20-40 points
You are on your way to being obseesed. try reading some more tolkien and spend more time here at the BD's

under 20
You are not obsessed. What in the wor;d are you doing here? Go and see the movie, read the book, spend at least 1/2 here every day and then take this test again and see if you do any better!


Oppps, sorry guys! I was obviosly tired when I wrote this!

Uh, I think I got 28. But I think I'm more than just "on my way to being obsessed" if I go by what my friends say. They just don't know what they're missing. They hate LOTR. [img]smilies/eek.gif[/img] What a shame. [img]smilies/tongue.gif[/img]
