I do believe you show all the classic signs of obsession. Super Scared Smilie
I think there was a similar thread started last year about this, but I can't find it at the moment. If I find it before there are a lot of posts in here, I will move it. Otherwise, this thread shall remain here. I look forward to hearing some other signs of Tolkien Obsessive Compulsive Behaviour from our esteemed membership. Orc With Thumbs Up Smilie
T'other thread was in the writer's guild, it stemmed off of a "you know you're a writer when..." kind of thing.

I didn't have to ask if you were joking, I knew that was for real, but that does indeed take the cake!

If my wife and I ever have a daughter, I would like to name her Silmarilla, but I think my wife would kill me first! Dead Smilie

BTW, just on my wife's behalf, the only reason my Tolkien rambling's are over her head is because she hasn't read all the stuff I have. That statement was just obviously intended to be a joke (at least she thought it was funny). She's probably actually smarter than I am, and she definitely reads more than I do.

You know when your obsessed when you cry at the part when Gandalf dies. Even though you've seen the movie a hundred times. Even though you've memorized the book. Even though you know he's not even actually dead.

Lol, so my mom was right! I'm addicted to this site.
You know your obsessed when your family knows what your saying when you speak elvish to them. Big Laugh Smilie
You know you are obsessed when the only section of a book store you look in has Tolkien related material.

You know you are obsessed when you spend hours downloading maps and cutting the edges off and taping them together, just to hang on the wall so you can, look at the maps when you are reading the books.

You know you are obsessed when your husband that told you to read the books in the first place, won't even talk about Tolkien with you anymore, and walks out of the room when you do talk about Tolkien.

You know you are obsessed when you referr to yourself by your screen name when you are talking to your friends in real life. I called my friend Stacie and left her a postBody on her machine that said "Hey Stacie, it is just Mellie. Call me back." And she knew it was me.

You know you are obsessed when you talk about your PT friends to your real life friends like they should know each other.

Ok, I guess that is all I can come up with, at the moment.

Yah, I wonder what he would think.
You know you're obsessed when:

- You see black birds and shout out "CREBAIN FROM DUNLAND!" then hide behind the nearest bush
- You actually wonder why the waitress kicked you out after you asked for a plate of raw and riggling fish
- You actually get confused when people tell you hobbits aren't real
- You want to get 9 pets and name them Frodo, Gandalf, Aragorn, Legolas, Gimli, Boromir, Sam, Merry, and Pippin
- You depart from your friends by saying "May the hair on your feet never grow less!"
- You walk around your house in an Elven cape and claim it will shield you from angry eyes
- You insult people by calling them "Orc," "Gollum," or "Spawn of Sauron"
- You run to the door when you're late for school calling "Let us make haste!"
- You spread hair regrowing cream on your feet to see if that'll make you look more "hobbitish"
- You call yourself "precious" and refer to yourself as "we" when people aren't listening
- You see a tall man wearing all black and you run the other way screaming "Help the Ringwraith is after me!"
- You spontaniously jump on your kitchen table and start to sing "Hey! Ho! there's a song I know..."
- You build a boat to sail over the pool in your backyard and shout "My time on middle-earth is ended! I will depart for the Grey Havens!"
- You answer Frodo/Legolas/Aragorn to all the questions you can't remember on a history test
- You ask your French teacher if you'll get extra credit if you answer the question in Elvish
- You'll spontaniously start cracking up over thinking about how funny it is that Frodo falls down on average ever 10 minutes in the fellowship of the Ring
- You know stupid facts like that Frodo falls down on average every 10 minutes in the fellowship of the Ring
- You eat slices and slices of Wonder bread claiming it's Lembas

You know you're obsessed when you want someone to be alive just to see a forum


That's far from the only reason I would want J.R.R.T. to be alive (obviously), but I think he would be amazed to see how big his creation has become, and the lengths that people go to in discussing M.E., and how passionate and obsessive about his creations a lot of us are.
Super Wow Smilie
As a dult with a peirced tongue once said (in Rat Race ) "Mowmiys pawbly watchig us fram heven right naw. What wuld SHE dow?"
