People can be so crazy [In reply to] Can't Post

Especially on the road. I can see why you were a shaking mess afterwards, cuz that sounds like it was really scary!Shocked I probably would have been in tears if it had happened to me. I'm glad you're alright though. *hug*Evil

"But there’s empty cross, there’s an empty tomb
Fire and wind now sweeping in this tiny upper room
There’s a hungry world, there’s a risen King
Unlock the doors, what reason more could we ever need?
So sing with me, I dare you to
Because there’s an empty cross; there’s an empty tomb"
~Empty (Disciples)-sung by Dan Haseltine and Matt Hammitt

congratulations! [In reply to] Can't Post

that's a huge accomplishment! Enjoy your well-earned weekend!

Do y'all have to defend your dissertations in an oral exam, as we do?

The way we imagine our lives is the way we are going to go on living our lives.

That would have scared the hell out of me. [In reply to] Can't Post

Thank goodness it was entirely innocent!

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauron’s master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded beggar with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.

Thank goodness the light changed when it did! [In reply to] Can't Post

I am gobsmacked at how aggressive some people can be, and to think they have a right to do it because of a perceived wrong. I told this guy that, sure, he thought he had a genuine point to make and raising it with me was one thing, but the way he was doing it was entirely wrong. I wonder if men realise just how small and vulnerable a woman can feel when she's being stood over and shouted at.

I went to my brother's last night for dinner and some live rugby, and left there in a better frame of mind.

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

Happy Founders' Weekend, everyone! [In reply to] Can't Post

Fifteen years! I still remember finding my way to TORn very soon after it was founded. It's been an amazing one-and-a-half decades!

*Raises glass* To TORn, and all who post (and lurk) here!

Do we find happiness so often that we should turn it off the box when it happens to sit there?

Ugh, what a nasty experience. [In reply to] Can't Post

I'm glad it wasn't even worse, but you certainly earned that doughnut!

Happy Founder's day and happy birthday ToRN! [In reply to] Can't Post

I don't spend half as much time here as I'd like, and you are all twice as welcoming as I deserve but know that I lurk often, this is very much my online home. Love to you all. *Raises glass*

Nope, don't have to defend them orally, though to be honest it would be much more thorough if we did! [In reply to] Can't Post

meh, I'm not complaining ;)

"So your own praise will forever keep your name green,
Both here on Earth and on the stage of the stars" - J.G.Kittel, writing about the composer Jan Dismas Zelenka (1740)
