Thanks!! [In reply to] Can't Post

No, I didn't really see it this way. Of course I sympathised with Bilbo, as we were meant to, but that was anout the limit of my moralising. I usually am quite optimistic and romantically minded, so I'm sure that I saw it in a good light as Tolkien intended.

The writing process was an exercise in inversion and exaggeration. I picked up little words, twisted their meanings, or tried to imagine the character in the most negative light. I basically saw everyone as a jerk, and tried to rationalise evey magical occurrence in a dream shattering way. Not for the faint of heart.

I have a morbid, macabre, and cynical side, the part of me that enjoys gallows humor and is cold, calculating, and logical. The guy good for analyses and problem solving, but whom I try to keep on a short social chain. Honestly, I was in a mood when I wrote this, and it allowed me to vent my frustration and have a little fun at the same time. It also put me in the right mind to work on lighter writing pieces, like children's stories. I would have been a total grinch if I had worked on that in my mood. The first story might have looked like this:

'And so that is why reindeer cannot fly, Santa would get hypothermia, not to mention his cholesterol. The tooth fairy is your parents, and the Easter bunny got run over.'

Life ending stuff!! LOL!! Thanks for the compliments, but you probably won't see much more doom and gloom from me for a while.

Bebother and confusticate these machines !!

My computer double posted my drafts. Oh well, you've the idea!
