Ya'll know how a couple of posts up I got real excited about my first LOTR sighting? It just dawned on me a couple of weeks ago that that wasn't my first sighting. On your way into town there is a Greenleaf Angus Ranch and Greenleaf Missionary Church.I remember going 'o look its says Greenleaf!' but it never registered as a true sighting.Thats sad.

There is this guy in my Ancient Civ class that has the Elijah Wood eyes..... it's creepy. He doesn't talk much, and he is kinda rude, so I don't talk to him.

I'm not sure if this can count as a true sighting because it was only my interpretation on an event but anyway . . . I was at kung fu and we were doing this weird exercise which involved walking forwards in a strange way. We did this up and down the hall and when i got to the end I turned around to watch my friend. When she got to the end she was just behind this other person and she bobbed up and down just like Frodo when he does his weird little dance at the party in FotR. It was so freakily similar that I just broke into hysterical laughter and the whole lesson was held up while I tried to a) stop laughing and b) explain my amusement. But it looked just like it! Even her facial expression was the same!

It's so familiar to me, I don't know why I didn't think of it before, but Pippin Street is a place close to my parents' house. I can't say I recommend a trip there though, there's nothing but fields.

Elijah Wood came in disguise to our Burn Camp (it's a Christian camp) - he called himself Luke and said that he was 18, as opposed to 22.

And a girl who looks like Arwen/Liv Tyler came to the same camp, but she didn't look quite as much like Liv and Luke did Elijah.

Cheers,

Thumbs up

There is an Inn near to me called the "Old Toby Inn", the pipe weed reference aside, the land lord there looks almost exactly (Although not entirely) completely not unlike Barliman Butterbur.

So it is interesting, (though not very interesting), that one expects him to have a Butterbur like voice… which of course he does... on occasion, though not all of the time. I think he puts it on when I am around.

hahahaha... I'm a part time rockwall instructor at our local gym and over the weekend, a coworker and i were putting helmets on our students (5th/6th graders) and he had chalk from climbing on his hands, so when he let go of one helmet, there was his handprint in white chalk on the front. I started laughing my head off and when he started giving me weird glances i tried to explain about the uruk hai helmets with the white hand of saruman, but he was like... Um.. If you say so... while trying to edge away from me. I'm so misunderstood.

Sting Not really a sighting, but...

Until recently I lived near a city called Riverdale. We were shopping one day, and I asked my parents if we could go to "Rivendell" so I could go to this store to see if they added any new Tolkien books to their Tolkien section. When I realized what I had just said, I nearly passed out in a giggle-fit. My mom didn`t get what I was laughing at, but my dad did. "What do you want to go to Rivendell for? Want to see if your Strider is there?" he asked me. I`ve done that 3 times now.

By the way Lady Snickerdoodle, I love your sig!

1420!

I just noticed today that a garbage can outside my school says "Pippin & Frodo Rock". Why it says that, I have no idea, but it sure made me happy to see it.

One of my teachers resembles Ejiah, except he's very, very tall and has brown eyes. One of my (female) classmates asked me if I would ask him out. O_o;

Here's a little fun thing: When me and a couple friends were talking about LotR during lunch, I mimicked Gollum. They seriously were freaked out by it. Heh heh heh... Silly people... I mean, all I said was:

They ssstole it from usss... Nasssty Hobbitsesss... Thievesss... They took our Preciousss, yesss...
I'm planing on mimicking one of the Ring-Wraiths next... *evil grin*

There's a person/humanoid (I'm not sure ) at my work that walks like an orc. I've actually met the real SEAN ASTIN. I went to his book signing. god he was beautiful. i'm sorry wrong thread.

I acted in a play once with a guy that looked exactly like orlando bloom! I played a seductress and got to seduce his character, believe me, it wasn't hard.

OMG I WENT TO THE BOOK SIGNING TOO!!! ONLY (yeah i ranted about this in the other thread) my NON RINGNUT relatives were like no we can go 30 minutes before, its ok its not like it'll be a mob scene. They wouldn't listen to me at all, i didnt understand... Anyway so we were 800th in line so i never even got close, unless you count the fact that i was actually standing in the no-ppl place (completely by accident- long story) when he walked in. THe security guards were like EXCUSE ME OUT OF THE WAY but they weren't quick enough and he walked by me 4 feet away and smiled at me. it was the most amazing experience ever.

Anyway.. wow i haven't been on here for aaaages i've been so busy (BUT I STILL LOVE YOU GUYS!!!) so the latest news is that i finally got a real bf, but he does not resemble orlando bloom or legolas in any way unless you count that he is blond. *sigh* oh well...
