Sting Word hallucinations

Has anyone else ever glanced at a word and had to stop a second because you thought that word was LOTR-related? I have seen:

Billabong - Balrog
Star! - Istari

There were a few more too, but I can't remember them. It's weird though- makes you think you're crazy!

Do I ever! And sometimes you actually see words that are middle earth related (to people like you and me anyways)

We drove by a building that said "Orc"

Instead of Enterprise, some buisnesses shorten to "Ent"

Anywho, here are some halucinations of mine.

Acorn: Aragorn

Boring: Boromir (no offense meant to Boromir!)

River: Rivendell

And the other day my dad couldn't remember the meaning of a word so he asked me "Grace, do you know what narcism means?" I nearly replied "Oh, that's Aragorns, but it's reforged now". I have more but I can't seem to think of them. Don't you hate it when that happens?

Agg! Yes!

Random bits from the movie will pop into my head at times as well. This weekend we were supposed to be at a certain place, but couldn't find it. And we were in a huge city that I'm not used to, I've lived in the boonies so long. I kept thinking "I have no memory of this place" and the music for that scene was running through my head the whole time. Yeah, that's when I saw the building that said "Orc".

There's a neighborhood, complex, thing near me that's called Brandywine, if that counts for anything. Let's see......

habit => hobbit (This has given me an unfortunate tendency to spell habit with two b's. [img]smilies/eek.gif[/img] yikes.)

I'll be back if I think of more...

I always see 'took' and immediately think they've forgotten to capitalize the T. Then I remember took is a word, not just a name.

I just did the dumbest thing at the store. There was a sign saying that "Greenleaf Lettuce" was on sale. Naturally, I thought it said, "Greenleaf Legolas" and had to do a second and third take. Someone shoot me.

LOL!!! I've done that quite a few times. The first time it happened I was like, They can't sell Legolas. Wait... that's not Legolas, that's lettuce. Oh yeah... it is lettuce... And the thing was, I had said it out loud, so everyone was looking at me in a weird way. BTW, welcome to the Downs, Vuelve!!

Sometimes when I see Elton John written somewhere, I think it says Elrond & vice-versa. & if it counts for anything, my friend's dad always asks why all these girls love "LEGLESS". BTW I never knew that there was a real Brandywine River until I watched the History Channel.

Man, I do this soooo many times. token= Tolkien, boron= Boromir, argon= Aragorn or Agronath, habit= hobbit, but there's also a famous poet from my city named John Greenleaf Whittier and I'm like, "Wow, is he related to Legolas? Nah... he's a boring old poet." [img]smilies/tongue.gif[/img] I also connect mirror with miruvor, peregrin falcon (a bird)= lil old Pip, and The Sims somehow gets repeatedly called The Silmarillion. Heck knows why... [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img]

When we first got our periodic tables, me and my ONLY OTHER lotr crazed friend were poking each other and pointing out Boron and Argon. Hehehehe...
Also, I saw Riverdale on the TV and I was all What? Rivendell?

There's this store called "Unfinished Works" and everytime I pass it I always have to do a double take because I think it says "Unfininshed Tales". You'd think I'd know by now that it doesn't. [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img] There was a time I was in a book store and they had a sign on a book shelf that said J-R. Yes I thought it said J.R.R. Tolkien and had to stop and stare at it to realize it didn't.

In dutch an Elephant is called an Olifant. So each time I read it I think of Tolkein's Oliphaunt. Cause both words have about the same pronounciation! [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

I saw a toothpaste box and thought it said "One Tube to rule them all" when it really said "Whiter teeth with One Tube, Guaranteed!"

If that's not a sign I need help, I don't know what is.

I saw some actor named Richard Olyphant or something of the sort and almost died laughing. Mom was the only other one who got it.

I was also writing last night and chanced to write "familiar", only I made a mistake and wrote "faramir". So I scribbled it out, shaking my head and started to write it again. "Faramir" popped up again... and again. So I have three scribbles in one sentence where "familiar" became "faramir". Shoot me.

Wow...I'm not alone! Every time I hear/read anything about the battle of the Argonne Forest(WWI)I always have to look at it again...for some odd reason I always think Aragorn. There's also a street sign where I live that says Loth Lorian. Needless to say, I often get confused with that one.

In school we're reading a book called Across 5 Aprils, it's about the Civil War, and the general store owner's name is Sam Gardiner. I often accidentally call him Sam Gamgee [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] . And there's a mean guy in the town named Guy Wortman, and I always accidentally call him Grima Wormtongue. Then the schoolmaster's name is Shadrach, but once I called him Shagrat. [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img] Oh yeah, NEVER read that book. At our school they bought like 50 copies of it, and 5 pages are missing, the rest are all scrambled up. [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

Yesterday I was in the car and on the radio the guy was all "Now for your E-M-T 411!" and to my mom I said "What? Did he say E-N-T? ENT? Hahahaa!" Then I was peeking at this book and it said Realms of Valor and I was like "VALINOR?!? Oh, damn. Valor." Then I was in the Body Shop and I saw a tube with 'Gingko Biloba' on it, and I thought it said Gingko Bilbo. Lastly, in our province there is a town called Gimli. I saw it on the news and I said, "Hee hee! Gimli! You know, from Lord of the Rings!...The dwarf's name is Gimli. You know, Gimli!...Yeah, I'll shut up now."

There is apparently some clothing company called Croft and Barrow. Whenever I see their clothing, I go, "Barrow-Downs? Where?" And, if I see it out of the corner of my eye, I think I'm looking at something related to the Lord of the Rings, which causes a very audible gasp and spin, which leads to some very strange looks from other people.

There is a region in Spain named Aragon. Needless to say I always seem to confuse that one. Every time I see the words fellowship or ring, no matter what context they are in, I start thinking about LOTR and then realize that whatever it was that I read was intended to mean something different. This often causes horrible puns, bcause one of my friend's last names is Ring. Heehee. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] I somehow think that Boron is similar to Sauron... don't ask. There is a street in my neighborhood called Greenleaf. That always produces laughs. That's all for now. I'll go think of more word hallucinations I've had.

How about "Shagrat, Grishnakh, and Abednigo"? We were talking about the original three in my Sunday School class and that leapt to my mind. My friend and I giggled over it for a good ten minutes, until our teacher told us to be quiet.

Another Sunday School one: Solomon => Saruman. We were reading this section about him and everytime someone read the name Solomon I wanted to yell, "It's Saruman!! Get it right!" [img]smilies/mad.gif[/img] But, yeah, I didn't, but I should've...

It wasn't written down, but there was an advert on the radio and all I heard was mumble mumble mumble barrow. I started listening and was going 'Barrow what? Wight? Downs?' It turned out to be a most boring advert, talking about wheel barrows though [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img]

Actually, I have this game-with-bad-graphics that has a monster thing that's called a 'Barrow Wight'. The Wight family also comes with a Tunnel-Wight. The 'Barrow Wight' seems to steal constitution and dexerity. [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img] Before it could attack me, I fire-bolted it to death.

I saw a car license plate once that said:

"BigMoot"

And I thought of "Ent Moot" immediately...

Also there's a subdivision around here we pass by alot called "Riverdale"...

And let tell you if I knew for sure any Elves were living in its houses I'd be flying down its streets trying to see them!

Yeah, we know. Though it's not just with LOTR words that this happens to me.

True, dat. All it takes is the glimpse of a capital X and a hyphen to set me off.

Loiter = LotR to the tired eye.
