I try to make a habit of cursing Randlandish! I think it's funny. :D

I do the same thing...and i don't mind.

So far I have dreamed 3 times about Moiraine,Egwene and the red pillared room..

 

Today I felt like Nynaeve;Iwas really cranky and just said out loud what I thought..

Sometimes I swear in Randlandish too, I like the phrase it's time to toss the dice(in the old tongue) just can't spell. If I knew how I would probably swear in the old tongue

Some of the aphorisms in the book are too quotable to not pop into your head in certain situations, at least once you've read them enough. Unless I'm just weird...

 

"A Myrddraal has less cunning that a woman, and a Trolloc fights with more honor."

I'm actually growing out my hair so that one day I'll be able to braid it and then yank that braid when I get angery. I've also honed myself a pretty good "snif" as well. That and I've all but convinced myself that my great, great, great grandfather was an Ogier. I mean tall stature and shaggy eyebrows run in my family so what else could it be, right?

OK, so last night I was reading from a book of devotionals and the line was something like this:

 

So in this world of confusion we know what we are called to be, light.

 

And I had to read it three times before I figured out that "light" was not a Randlandish swear! So now I think that I have it (the addiction) pretty bad because I can't even read normally any more.

I regularly find reason to say "Let the Lord of Chaos Rule", though it's rather discouraging when nobody gets it.

 

And I've started using fish analagies a la Siuan.

 

And I have wrong dreams about Trollocs :P

Oh yeah big WoT addict. It gets a little ridiculous sometimes. My boyfriend got me into the series and now I have totally surpassed him on the nerdy/addict factor.

 

I swear in Randland

 

I dream about Randland

 

I use other expressions, such as when I am talking to my boyfriend I call him "the shade of my heart".

 

I also wish people to find water and shade.

 

No one else gets it though. Huge Nerd! :oops: :lol:

I got really addicted to WoT that I googled it online and then joined Dragonmount :P

 

Oh and I made alot of friends off of DM that I still talk to by calling them on my cell phone when my minutes are free, seeing as how most of them live hundreds of miles from me and more.

 

:D

 

Btw, PM me if you ever want a call XD

I use WoT language all the time. Especially curse words (but only in my head usually ^^) All my friends call me obsessed though, and some of them are considered obsessed, so to be called obsessed by an obsessed person HAS to be bad.... ^^

Yay! I'm not the only one who has almost cursed out loud in Randlandish! :D

 

My boyfriend introduced me to the series and we've made so many references to it in conversation that if his son (who hasn't read WoT yet) doesn't understand a comment, he'll just say "Yeah, I know..Robert Jordan reference." With rolled eyes of course! :roll:

 

I dream of it occasionally..though the most interesting on was while I was in the midst of the series and also watching the series Highlander that a friend had loaned me. Dreamt I was an immortal AND an Aes Sedai! :shock:
