you print off lots of pictures and bore all of your teachers to death: 'this is aragorn's crown- i don't think it looks right, i mean, it was clearly described i nthe book- what do you think?' 'umm...'

-you get very mad when anyone from LOTR is parodied on TV- that happened today and he didn't even sound like Gandalf, that was the ridiculous thing!

Oooooo! I saw a girl in school today who was wearing the Evenstar! *squee* And she was wearing this very Elven shirt that I'm pretty sure she sewed herself! I wish I could have talked to her, but it was in between classes, and I only saw her pass by in the hall... I don't know who she was...

Argh! The most horrible thing happened, though! When she passed through the hall, some stupid guy yelled after her "Halloween is over, you know!" because of her shirt! [img]smilies/frown.gif[/img] It was so mean... I liked her shirt... Some people are just plain rude [img]smilies/mad.gif[/img]

Wheee! Changed my avatar! I love my new one! *huggles avatar*

~When you're at Wal-mart back in the Electronics department and stop dead in your tracks when you see a preview for FOTR playing on a tv. Then you have to stand there glued to to tv until the nice, long preview is over, even though you of course have seen the movie itself numerous times, and are dying of curiousity to know why in ME they were showing a preview for FOTR. It turned out they were playing a dvd from a couple of years ago so it had a preview about FOTR being in theatres. It was such a cool preview, too!!! I unfortunately wasn't a LotR fan until FOTR had just come out on dvd [img]smilies/frown.gif[/img] So I didn't have the privilage of seeing the previews before.
~When you are dreadfully sad that you weren't a fan early enough to get to see FotR in theatres, and they won't be showing Trilogy Tuesday in a theatre near enough for you to go, so you feel as if you've missed something really, really good. Which of course I did.

Argh... I had a...discussion with my friend today about literature...heh heh. See, she's an obsessive Anne Rice fan, and I (of course) am an obsessive Tolkien fan... We were arguing over who's better: Frodo or Lestat... She locked me out of my house, trying to make me say Lestat was better, but I didn't give in! I just whined and whined until she let me back in... heh heh [img]smilies/tongue.gif[/img]

But that wasn't fair! She said Anne Rice is a better author than Tolkien, and she hasn't even read LotR! I have the right to argue because I'm reading The Vampire Lestat, but she has nothing to base her argument on! Argh! Okay...I'll get off my soapbox now...

You know you're obsessed with LOTR when...I was walking uo Broadway the other day and I happened to glance up at one of those revolving newsstrips. As I looked up I saw the word "took" but read it as "Took"-thinking that there might be some news about LOTR I got a quick shudder,but just as quickly I realized my mistake. Oh well, back to real life again.

What's a freshman????

I tend to stop dead in the cloisters when I see/hear anything to do with LOTR....I was late for maths once (well I was going to be late anyway actually) because I stopped and read an entire science project that was on display...it was about technological advances and stuff, so this person did the special effects in LOTR as a case study!!!!!

Elentari, a freshman (stupid and fat or nice) is a first-year in American high schools and/or universities (though I was referring to high school). Sophomore is second year, junior third year, and senior fourth year. Hope that answers your question.

I had stuff to post, but I need to get off the computer and go find OniGene so that he doesn't think I fell of the planet. (that could be an interesting experience though...)

I know two girls who haven't even finished LotR who say it's a bad book. One of them is nice, so I'm trying to convert her into a LotR fan, but I think the other one is a lost cause (she's a total HP obsessee- and to think that she was one of my best friends)

Earlier today, in math class, I was graphing 1/x²+1, and the guy next to me remarked that it looked like a speed bump, to which I replied that it was a speed bump. Then he said it was the speed bump of doom, so I said 'The one speed bump to rule them all!', and we both laughed quite a bit, especially when we thought of the mental images (I mean, come on, Frodo carrying a concrete speed bump? Or trying to fit the speed bump on the Council table? I guessed that it would crush half of the Council. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] Or Isildur trying to cut a speed bump off of Sauron's hand.) Eventually, the guy next to me remarked that you couln't get much more of an unwieldy item, and then we came up with the idea of a solid gold anvil. No one is gonna steal that! [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] I eventually remarked 'No we know what the Fellowship was for.' Yeah, I was bored and it was the second math class in a row, and ROTK was sitting on my desk, so can you blame me?

Hate to say that i did not read most of the post so I am sorry if i repeat anything

~ you know your obsessed when...
* you know all the lines in the movie

* you give your friends elvish names without their consent, then they just sorta stare at you until you call them by their real name...::true story::

* when you get an out of uniform day and you realize you have no LOTR shirts, so while watching the movies you run, get a white shirt, and a permanent marker, and write "Frodo Lives" all over it :: ^.^ ::

* when you crack funny LOTR jokes like
" four hobbits walk into a bar..." and no one gets what your talking about

You annoy the people at the theater when you go to see Matrix III, by quoting the character's lines along with the characters in the RotK trailer that shows before the movie.

you go to see matrix revolutions for teh trailer and you:

1. lie there watching it in a trance because it is SO amazing.
2. almost die when aragorn comes o ne screen (i'm going through a 'i'm completely in love with aragorn' thing)
3. plan what you are going to say if anyone laughs at it WHILE watching the trailer (now that's mulit- tasking [img]smilies/tongue.gif[/img] )

~ When you paint your fingernails to say 'Frodo Lives' and are sad because you don't have enough fingers for an exclamation mark.

~ When you also paint your toenails to match, even though no one will ever see them, because it is winter.

~ When this is the first time you have painted your fingernails or toenails for three years, but you decided RotK is a special occasion.

Why does Crazy Captions get a new thread when it is only 14 pages long, yet this one is 18 pages long? I am confused about this.

When you screech like a baby Nazgul when you see a car go by your school bus that says "Bilbo" on it. (I wanted to stick my head out of the window and yell, "Bilbo Baggins!" and pray that a little man wearing a gold ring sticks his hand out and waves. Oh wait, he'd be invisible then. Never mind!)

Hi everyone! I'm new here-this is my first post in a forum EVER. Yay me!

Anyway, here goes!

When you like your middle name better than your first because it sounds more "Elvish". My middle name's Elizabeth. I also like it because in the movie Elizabeth, Cate Blanchett plays Elizabeth, and she's Galadriel! That mean's 'm connected to LOTR!!!

When you listen to your brother play video games, and you hear "have a taste of dwarven magic" you immediatly think of Gimli. Then, later, you hear your brother ask your cousin, "Should I be Fatty?" and nearly crack up.

When your mom thinks you need a therapist because all you talk about has something to do w/ LOTR. My mom thinks I need a therapist, even though my dad was also obsessed w/ LOTR when he was my age. And he actually had a friend who liked it too.

When the only reason you go to church for a few weeks is because you're watching FOTR in youth forum (and in January we get to watch TTT! Yay!)

When nobody at school talks to you because they don't like 2-hour lectures on why TTT was an awful movie (from my viewpoint, although I'm adjusting to the horrendous changes. I can't have the normal DVD because I want the EV and my mom will only let me buy one. That's the only reason why I don't have the EV FOTR.)

I seriously have scared quite a few people w/ LOTR. But my history teacher saw me reading An Atlas of Middle-Earth and told me that he thought that all this, well I don't know any other way to describe it, hysteria was based on LOTR. I spent the better part of 15 min. talking to him about Tolkien.

When you have already decided the names of your future pets-and all of them are LOTR or The Hobbit based (I'm naming all of my future dogs after Thorin & Co.!)

Well, that's my bit. Now I have people to talk to about my greatest joy in life ( other than my dachshunds)!

Welcome to the Barrow Downs and I hope you enjoy being dead!!!!

You pray to Eru and Elbereth that you have extremely easy midterm exams on Dec. 18th so you can go see RotK on Dec. 17th with your 8-year-old younger brother who's getting pretty obsessed with LotR (Yes, I corrupted him! I also corrupted the 2-year-old in the house, and the other day, he said something like "Ah-gon" and pointed to my Aragorn cut-out. I squealed!!!!

*squee* I love dachshunds! I don't have one, though... [img]smilies/frown.gif[/img]

-When the proudest moment of your day is when someone asks you who they look like from LotR so they can dress up for the movie

-When you make Smaug shadow puppets in your school's parking lot. (Guilty? Me? Nahhh...)

When once you found a racehorse called Elvstroem, you search high and low for any other horses with LOTR bassed names... I found a horse called Arwon! that brings my tally to 2!
