How true, Elennar. [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img] You can only use an LotR bookmark in and LotR book! Anything else is practically a sin.

***When you check LotR.net every day to see if they have new RotK stuff up.

To all of you who haven't checked lately, go there now; the new teaser poster is up!!!

My parents have tried banning me from using the Internet, but it didn't work. I use it anyway when they're at work, so they realized that there was absolutely no point in banning me from it, since I was going to find ways to get on this site anyway.

well, I do use these neat japanese braid things that I make as bookmarks, but I think that's OK because they're really cool looking, especially when they're color-coordinated to match the book! [img]smilies/tongue.gif[/img] [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] [img]smilies/cool.gif[/img]
At school I try to always have an extra one, just in case something like that happens again.

you know you're obsessed when...

-you change the words of songs to be LotR related.
*starts singing* The ents go marching one by one...
actually I'm stuck on that song, if anyone has any ideas, share them please?

-when you can type your elvish name faster then your real name-or you consider your elvish name your real name.

when I get kicked off the computer and start getting Barrow-downs withdrawal symptoms, I go to the library and use the computer there.

You see elves walking down the street (swear that woman I saw from the bus was an elf, she had pointy ears!)

scenario: you are sitting at the computer, engrossed in making a desktop picture (click here and click on backgrounds if you're interested) and someone says "Ring" and you immediately spin round and go huh? what? [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

That webiste is brilliant, Galenfea! Love the backgrounds, especially! [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

***You know you're obsessed with LotR when your obsession starts rubbing off on people. In my case, these people are my little cousins. [img]smilies/tongue.gif[/img]

Example: I was babysitting my cousins last week, and I asked them what movie they wanted to watch. They thought for a minute, then one of them said "I want to watch Lord of the Rings!"

Another example: My cousin has given his son, Adam, the nickname Adam Bombadil.

I love when I do this to people. *must continue spreading LotR insanity.....* *runs off to plot*

I swear these are original, but if someone has already used them, let me know:

You know you're obsessed w/LotR when you've scratched "PJ must die!" on the back of the theater seat in front of you with your One Ring while watching TTT.

You know you're obsessed when you get together w/Tolkienite friends just to RIP THE MOVIES TO SHREDS!!!!!!

You know you're obsessed when you can make comments like these and still be dying to see RotK! [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img] [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

How about whenever you hear the song "American Pie" you start singing along, but only with the words to "Middle-Earth Sky"

So bye, bye, to that good Shire sky.
Got a journey now before me
And I must say good-bye
To hobbit folk drinking whiskey and rye.
But this wont be the day that I die.
This wont be the day that I die.

You know you're getting your family/friends obsessed when.....

Your mother tells you "I love you. And I would never trade you to the orcs."

Your sister cusses a nameless orc out for hurting Aragorn.

Your father tries to show how much more he knows about LOTR than you.

When you ask your friends for advice, and their first suggestion pertains to middle-earth.

Your sister is rarely at home, but she knows a good amount of hobbit songs.


::blushes:: All of those r me!!!!

Goodness! I keep coming up with more!


When you see a LOTR movie with ANYONE in your family, it's a matter of which one of you points out something that either wasn't in the book, or something they left out. (so many times, my sister beat me to the punch. [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img])


btw; i keep saying "my sister", because i have 3 sisters. the oldest one likes lotr. next one really likes them, next one LOVES them, and i am obsessed! see a trend? [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img] i shudder to think how obsessed a younger sibling would be, if i had one.

When your best friend who is a sci-fi/Star Wars fan calls you elf-maid or Tinuviel.

When you answer to both of those better than to your real name.

Your little brother calls your name a few times (at least, I think he did) then says Tinuviel to get your attention and it works.

When you've trained your three-year-old sister to answer to Elfie.

When you can think of things to post on this thread.

I was listening to a group of guys talking about Orlando Bloom yesterday, and they said one of his lines wrong.

~ "there is a fell wind on the air"

When it was supposed to be

~ "there is a fell voice on the air."

I just about attacked him right there. Instead I just did some rather loud rewording from the other side of the room. Been ranting about Ignorant mortals for a couple of days.

I was reading in a magazine yesterday about the interests of the people today, and it was mainly about the interest in fantasy stories, like lotr and Harry Potter.

It was kinda interesting, but then it was talking about the similarities between Harry Potter and Frodo...

They called Frodo:
"de oersaaie hobbit"( in dutch)
translation: the dead-boring hobbit

I'm still recovering...
[img]smilies/mad.gif[/img] [img]smilies/mad.gif[/img] [img]smilies/mad.gif[/img]

So, you know when you're obsessed with lotr, when you are making a fuzz about something like that, I guess... [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img]

When you're watching showjumping and a white horse comes on and you yell, "Noro lim, Laurin! Noro lim!"

Yep. Got Dec. 17 all planned out.

no kidding? [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img] i wanna see how many people will call me nureldawen. that's my barrowdowns-given name.
Here's a tip: don't answer to whatever your real name is. Ask "Who's that?" It worked for me!

When your mother actually sits up to make sure you get off the Downs because she knows that once you see that hypnotic black and green screen you will be sucked into a time warp and not realize that hours are passing in the real world.

When all of your posts on this thread apply to you and aren't just things other people have done. I am a very sad case...

You kill spiders, and run at them madly, waving flashlights and screaming, "A Elbereth Gilthoniel! Aiya Earendil Elenion Ancalima!" and get very strange looks.

You try your hand at designing bags, and tear off the brown leather on a perfectly good black leather briefcase with brown leather trimming, all the metal decals, and put tons of red acrylic paint and gold sequins everywhere, and call it your Harad bag.

You are wondering whether you should come out with a line of clothing that just has Elf and Ranger clothes.

Your response to the above is: That would be awesome! Can I help?

Your mother gets home from picking your younger sis up from her meeting and asks "Where is everyone?" Your older sis says, "Tinuviel's on the Barrow-downs." Your mother says, "Of course." The exact same thing happens later that evening when your dad gets home from his meeting.

You used to wear your hair in a ponytail for convenience, but you've designed an elvish hairstyle that is even more convenient and now wear it constantly.

Of course you can help! I'm still wondering whether I should sell the bag that I just made. But I'm not sure if anyone can take that bag anywhere. After all, it's black leather with red paint and gold sequins.

Well, if you want to sell it, you'd have to make more of them and patent them so no one can steal your idea. Except us Downers of course. [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

these are great guys! I am not worthy of your obssessiveness!

you know your obsessed when...

you have dreams in Elvish (I did, it had subtitles too, pretty cool.)

your friends think you actually believe your an elf and your married to Frodo (I am!)

you qoute the Lay of Gil-galad randomly

when you go for a walk w/ a friend and you qoute one of bilbo's songs that he wrote during The Hobbit (guilty!)

that's all I can think of right now
