You know you`re obsessed when you wish that Disneyworld would make its own ME. I mean, they did Jurassic Park which was like heaven for me, so why not do ME too??
I have a suspicion NZ will turn the Hobbiton set into an amusement park with all its trimmings, but am unsure whether it will have rides.

How about the 'Falling Bridge' ride in Moria or the 'Tip the Orc Ladder' ride at Helm's Deep?

I was having computer problems all day yesterday, and couldn’t come to PT. Needless to say I was about to freak out, another day or so, and I probably would have gone crazy!

Then I must be obsessed, because I have two "Stings" one full sized for hobbit-sized Elisha Wood, and another smaller one in case a human-sized Gandalf holds it. Each has an ornate scabard, the blades, not the actors. Elf With a Big Grin Smilie

You know you're obsessed when you think that "Frodo" is a good name for a child.
You know you're obsessed when you spend £120 on a replica Glamdring with your name engraved on the hilt in Tengwar. (It was worth every penny and now takes pride of place on my bedroom wall.)
You know your obsessed when you wake up at 4:30 in the morning to get on Planet-Tolkien so your parents dont get mad at you for it(they are not awake at that hour),which is exactly what I have been doing,even on Saturdays.

I don't think that I would call myself obsessed, just eager to learn all that I can as fast as I can but still have the ability to go back and reread my favorite tolkien works over and over and over again. Although I can't seem to find everything that I'm looking for and I find myself wanting the stories that I've already read to never end.

For instance I just love Arwen and Aragorn and I can't seem to find there full storie in one book. Also I can't seem to find much about Celebrian. And there really doesn't seem to be anything done after the war of the ring. Though I could be wrong because I've only been reading tolkien for the past three years.

However I could very well be obsessed with tolkien because I find myself randomly quoting tolkien, and correcting my family when they mispronounce or misquote tolkien. There have occassional fights when I am so sure that the way I have pronounced or quoted something is correct and my family won't believe me only to find I was right.
( My family would definitely say I am obsessed.)

Somehow I knew I wasn't alone! Tongue Smilie
You know you are obsessed when you spend so much time on PT or in PT chat that the rest of your family will get online, just so they can talk to you. (For example when Matthew and Robbie get on line)

You know you are obsessed when you are tallking to non PT friends and telling them about a friend of yours that______(fill in the blank) and they have no idea who you are talking about and you think they are nuts, because they don't know this person.

You know you are obsessed when your friends and family finally recognize the names of your online friends and actually start asking you how they are doing.

You know you are obsessed when the first thing you say to someone is Tolkien related and they tell you to not even bring it up, because they are sick of you talking about Tolkien.

You know you are obsessed when you start talking about the characters in ME like they are real people and start telling others about their antics.

Oh, I have another one.

You know you are obsessed when you spend hours, days, weeks and even months working on a birthday list for all of the Members of Planet-Tolkien, just so you can make this in to a large family atmospher instead of just another website. Or you know your PT friends birthdays better than you do your own family's birtdays.

YOKO when you have plans to build a hobbit house like Bag-end in the field next to a house your boyfriend will buy in a few years.

YOKO when you have more plans for the hobbit house than the real house..

YOKO when seing every grassy hill with a tree on top you think "Oh what a great place for a Hobbit hole!"

YOKO when you see german bunkers from ww2 duged into and through a grassy hill on a field overlooking a fjord, and your amazed that the owners of the fiels haven't painted the door green and made it look cosy.

YOKO when it took a few seconds befor you felt guilty about thinking this, when you know what the holes where used for and for all the pain they are only memories from now. Sad Smilie

YOKO when you see Mariesthirll say "There's a sign on your door saying "Speak Friend
and enter!" " and you hit yourself on the forehead, totally amazed you hadn't thought of that for your Hobbit Hole!

YOKO when you see a black and white picture of a relative on your grandmothers wall and think: "If I where a Hobbit I would have know everything there was to know about him, and I could point him out on the family three in less than one second."
Haha, that's a great YKYO list, Mariesthrill! (and everyone else, too!)
