It must have worked because [In reply to] Can't Post

I got an e-mail from Daniel Reeve!

OK, I'm sure it said exactly the same thing as the ones the rest of you got, but still....squeeee!

As you say, I'm sure all of us got one, but seeing that little "email from Daniel Reeve" popup on my Yahoo Messenger was exciting, and the message itself was very sweet.

Thanks for the info! [In reply to] Can't Post

I took the Paypal route. The Paypal account is in my husband's name, but I did identify myself in the Note to Seller box.

I'm still marveling at the beauty of the drawing.



There he lay, a vast red-golden dragon, fast asleep; a thrumming came from his jaws and nostrils, and wisps of smoke, but his fires were low in slumber. Beneath him, under all his limbs and his huge coiled tail, and about him on all sides stretching away across the unseen floors, lay countless piles of precious things, gold wrought and unwrought, gems and jewels, and silver red-stained in the ruddy light.

I think I'm the only one here who... [In reply to] Can't Post

didn't use much imagination when she signed onto TORn. I've often wished I had picked up a good username here, as I've done on other Tolkien based websites, but here I'm stuck with my own unimaginative name. I looked at the names on the map and thought--wow! I know I could have changed when the new boards came to fruition, but by then, well, who would have known me?--a rose by any name might smell as sweetCrazy but Patty I've been since TORn started so I guess Patty I'll stay.

Patty, did you see [In reply to] Can't Post

my mathom the other day? Scroll down to the next to last paragraph, and PM me if you're interested. Same for anybody else who was really excited about seeing Altaira's reaction. Also, apparently the megaupload versions work, but it takes about two hours to download each one. The DVDs are full-sized and will play on your DVD player.

MORE evidence of "other powers" at work! [In reply to] Can't Post

And I might add, the feeling is entirely mutual (I mean, I also have the honor and privilege of diagonal adjacenticity to you!!)

Nothing which is true or beautiful or good makes complete sense in any immediate context of history; therefore we must be saved by faith. Nothing we do, however virtuous, can be accomplished alone; therefore we must be saved by love."

Well [In reply to] Can't Post

in the math classes I teach it's called "adjacency", but I don't know if math jargon qualifies as real words. I kind of like "adjacenticity" :-) At any rate, it's nice to be your neighbor on the Map!

Thanks for pointing that out. Yes, I believe I'll NEED to have a copy of the DVDSly. I've been back to look and tear up at squee! several times, and I know that eventually you'll be obliged to take it down. I'm one who still looks at her copy of THE Oscars from time to time and tears up.Wink

Don't worry, Patty... [In reply to] Can't Post

... your TORN nickname is fine!

I also was toying with the idea of changing my nickname for the new boards -- I've been playing around with Sindarin names and thought I'd take a crack at making up a new one -- but am glad now that I didn't.

It's funny because the opposite thought had occurred to me. [In reply to] Can't Post

As fun as it is to see my TORn nickname on the Map, it would have been kind of fun to see my real name there. I actually used my real name the first year I was on TORn, and finally decided to change it after I saw that everyone else had nicknames. But NZStrider still calls me Karen on the boards sometimes:-) I think "Patty" is lovely, because it's your name.

I suppose the coolest correspondence I ever got was a snail-mail letter from Fred Rogers.
