Elizabeth (elizabethnovak) You Know You’re Addicted to LOTR When...

~You start quoting from the movie as part of regular conversation.

~You like to tell your mom that you are hungry by quoting: "Merry, I'm hungry." She used to just laugh, but now she says, "What would you like to eat, Pippin?"

~You continually ask your parents for second breakfast.

~All the staff at your local cinema knows you by your first name and even before you open your mouth to speak, they say "Ticket for 'Fellowship of The Ring?'"

~You hate Burger King food, but you ate nothing else for a month to get the toys.

~You've crammed up your computer's memory by downloading every single screen saver from www.LordoftheRings.net

~You wander around the house in a knee length nightie, pyjama trousers and an unfastened dressing gown (to give you a train).

~You are trying to be an elf, and actually manage to forget that the nightie is blue with dolphins, the trousers have teddies on and the dressing gown is tartan.

~Your Lord of the Rings shirt has not yet met the washing machine.

~You don't have enough money to buy groceries for the next week before payday, yet you charge £50 on your credit card to get a three year charter membership in the official LOTR fan club. Who needs food anyway?

~You refer to parts of your town as parts of Middle-Earth.

~You wear hobbitish clothing as part of your normal wardrobe.

~You sometimes let your hair go curly after a wash, and then run around the house in bare feet yelling "I'm a hobbit!"

~You hate it when Elves are only thought of as 'Santa's little helpers' and have tried to explain the difference between Santa-elves and Syrian Elves to your 5-year old cousins.

~You speak in Quenya just to annoy your friends.

~You refer to regular elephants as oliphaunts.

~While buttering a piece of bread, you suddenly think of Bilbo (remember when he was talking to Gandalf about feeling tired) saying that he felt 'like butter spread over too much bread.'

~You renamed your car the Wraith-mobile.

~You have a replica of The One Ring.

~You are beginning to resemble a panda due to the fact that you've stayed up until 2 am reading and re-reading the great books.

~You actually managed to read the Silmarillion without being tempted to give up on this whole middle earth malarkey.

~You now have a lifetime fear of black horses!

~You haven't removed the soundtrack from your CD player since you bought it.

~You have sssudenly developed a hisssing lisssp every time you sssay the letter ssss.

~You have looked both on the net and in the phone book to see if archery and sword fighting lessions are offered in your area.

~You have begun calling your husband / wife / girlfriend/ boyfriend / animal or kid my precioussss.

~You happily traveled over an hour to the next town to see "it" because that theater has a better sound system than the one 5 minutes down the road.

~You have called every theatrical or specialty makeup company in town looking for pointy ear or hairy feet prosthetics.

~You've worn your plastic "one ring" that came on your Legolas bookmark so much the gold is completely worn off.

~You've begun drafting a letter to the Webster's dictionary people requesting that they include "Ringers" in their next edition.

~At Christmas time relatives find you chatting with the tree and sharing eggnog draughts.

~Single ads with the description," short plump and big hairy feet" seem much more appealing.

~You know The LoTR history better then your family history.

~You have a mouse named Frodo, a bird named Gollum, and a dog named Gandalf. And that cat that keeps coming around to be petted is Legolas.

~You know Elvish better then English.

~Whenever something goes wrong, it's Sauron's fault.

~When you sing in the shower, it's always about Gil-Galad or hobbit walking songs...

~You know everything about Middle Earth geography, but you can't get someone from your house to the ice cream parlor. Now the nearest movie theater, that is a different story.

~You think the names of the 7 dwarves from Snow White are: Gimli, Gloin, Thorin, Fili, Kili, Ori, and Bombour.

~You have developed your own special Tolkien handwriting. "A firm, flowing script..."

~Words like "Yrch" make sense to you.

~You've become strangely obsessed with mushrooms.

~Whenever you close a door, you say "They have a cave troll!"

~When you come to a dead end you're still convinced that the road goes ever on and on.

~There's a sign on your door saying "Speak Friend and enter!"

~Whenever you get a chance, you burst into song. Preferably one that has more than 20 verses.

~You change your name by deed poll to a Tolkien character and seriously consider naming your children after LOTR characters.

~Every time you see birds in the sky you have the urge to say "Fly you fools!"

~When someone knocks on your door you grab them, pull them inside and ask "Are you frightened?... Not nearly frightened enough!"

~Your computer's screen saver is a marquee reading, "Ennyn Durin atan Moria: pedo mellon a mino" and the password is actually "mellon".

~You cannot see a beer without blurting out "It comes in pints? I'm getting one!"

~You just can't keep yourself from saying "nobody tosses a Dwarf" at inappropriate moments.

~A shadow and a threat is growing in your mind.

~You now referring to your friends as your 'Fellowship' and insist that you have epic adventures.

~You stand in the doorway and tell your cat that he 'Can not pass'.

~You wash your face in the sink and expect to see things that are, that have been or that will be.

~Your wedding band has started to weigh you down with it's evil powers. ~Spending $35 at the grocery store seems expensive but its Perfectly fine to spend $70 on the Hardcover LOTR book with Alan Lee Illustrations.

~You start keeping a LOTR Journal to write poems and inklings in.

~You face every difficult decision with the thought "now what would Gandalf advise me to do?"

~You know what Entmoot, Ent draught, or an Ent is for that matter.

~You've gained 20 pounds because you've started eating a "Second Breakfast"

~A walking stick... you never leave home with out it.

~You actually get these jokes and pass them on to other friends who are addicted to Lord of the Rings.

I don't see anything weird with LOTRO. My older sister has a free-to-play account, and my dad and older brother are full members.
