it's been a while [In reply to] Can't Post

Hi, I'm Kristin and I've been away from TORn for a bit, like 3 years or so. In that time I've moved across the country twice, completed my masters degree, had a baby and am now 'settled' and working. I'd love to connect with anyone in the Bay Area and just get back into the community in general!

New but not so new. [In reply to] Can't Post

Hello I'm AwiŽ.

I'm new on the boards but old on TORn having checked out the web site almost daily since I found it when FOTR was released. I was also blessed to attend all three of the TORn Oscar parties.

I've only now checked out the message boards though and can't believe what I have missed. I especially like the GOLD Nuggets and Screencap of the day.

I'm an at home mother of two, who likes watching birds (my handle AwiŽ means Little Bird in Quenya) read, medieval history, anything to do with nature especially trees.

I've been reading LOTR yearly since 1982, and read the books for the first time in the early 70's. I love the books and I love the movies.

I'm not sure how brave I will be in posting replies but I will try.

me [In reply to] Can't Post

I'm Helen and a virgo / libra edge (depending in which hemisphere and solstice you dwell)

I'm English from a stewpot of Celtic grand-parents, Cockney Mum and posh Kent Dad; so me accent's a bit dodgy.

(and I think I'm on the Yank website from what I'm reading about eating out places)

hmm Rohan is calling...

My likes: slow horses, fast men.
I always know what I want and getting there has always been easy.

I'm currently living in Africa and stick out a mile away - cos I look like a pagan witch from Avalon.
and I'm single.

Hey everyone! [In reply to] Can't Post

Hello there! I'm Isabel and i'm from Montevideo Uruguay, so sorry if my Enlgish is not perfect. Anyways, i've been a member of a Harry Potter fan site (The Leaky Cauldron) for a long time now (almost 2 years) and i was thinking today, if i like LOTR more than Harry Potter and like forever why on earth i'm not on a LOTR fansite?? Sooo here i am!
Anyways, silly story i know Tongue but i'm looking forward to start posting and checking out all the threads! So see you around!

Buenas Dias! [In reply to] Can't Post

Buenas Dias!

"What do you mean? Do you wish me a buena dia, or do you mean that it is a buena dia whether I want it or not; or that you feel buena this dia, or that it is a dia to be buena on?" (Ah, Gandalf!)

Anyway, a hearty greeting to my fellow Latinos (I'm a mixed-blood Yaqui, born in the USA of a tribe based primarily in Mexico.) And a salute to the Filipina from the land of a thousand gorgeous islands, too! And to each and every one of you, because all cultures are rich and beautiful in their heritages and variety, and a homogeneous Middle Earth would bore me silly.

Hi, I'm new around here, also. I've been into Tolkien since I read the Hobbit in 1963, but didn't participate in fandom until just this century. I'd heard of TORN but feared it might be too lofty for me. Now I find that it is a warm and friendly place indeed. Thank you for being here.

My website http://www.dreamdeer.grailmedia.com offers fanfic, and message-boards regarding intentional community or faerie exploration.

A human hobbit? [In reply to] Can't Post

Hi, my name is Dave. I live in Kingston, Ontario, Canada.

I love hobbits, eating, drinking ale, and growing my beard. I had my first taste of Tolkien around the 6th grade. Around the same time I first watched Star Wars as well. I love the life of a hobbit. Seems like paradise to me.

I'm new here but not to message boards. I've been posting on a Star Wars board for over 4 years. I hope to make lots of friends here.

hello again [In reply to] Can't Post

I suppose I am a new oldbie, or is it an old newbie? I used to post here years back but I can't remember anymore how I was called back then. I've been lurking for some years, since I changed my computer and lost my nick and password but regurlarly follow the conversation anyhow.
My new nick was inspired by Dinah Hazell's The Plants of Middle Earth. I've become very much into plants and nature these recent years. What more becoming to a lover of Tolkien?
I hope to be a bit more active now though who knows what the Real Life has in store for us.

I'm Mike, 25, and I'm from Kansas.
I know I'm a little weird, so don't remind, me, but I've become a huge Lord of the Rings fan over the last several years (and I haven't even finished the book!).
Besides the Lord of the Rings, I'm a diehard metalhead, and a huge sports fan, my favourites being Australian Rules football, hockey, rugby, and the Olympic Games.
That's all for now....

Hello [In reply to] Can't Post

Hi there just a quick note to introduce myself. My name's Andy, I'm 43 fron Northampton in the UK.

I first encountered Hobbits in 1978 When I read The Hobbit. My next encounter was many years later in the mid 80's when a Computer game on the Sinclair ZX Spectrum got me interested enough to read LoTR for the 1st time. I've since read it 2 more times.

Anyway, I now have a new job as a Lorry driver for a large supermarket which involves loads of sitting in my cab waiting to be unloaded/loaded so I have taken up reading again after a short hiatus of 10 years where I only read from the Internet, shame on me!!

I've Just finished Azimov's "I robot" and am about to embark on the HoMe series starting with Book of Lost tales part one.

That's enough waffling from me, Catch you all on the forums sometime in the future, most likely in the reading room!!

Cheers, Andy

P.S I'm working on an Avatar...Honest!!

Hey folks [In reply to] Can't Post

My name is Leo, as is my nick. I'm not very original ;-) I used to frequent these boards back in the very old days, before they even started shooting LOTR. But then this takes a lot of time, and I don't really have a lot of time. But I can try...

I'm 26 years old now, and live in a little town in the middle of Holland, or The Netherlands if you prefer. No, not Amsterdam. I am a freelance journalist, mostly politics related. And the rest of my time is spent on other little jobs here and there. I like a bit of variation in my daily rumblings.

Back in the days I used to write up headlines for TORn, but I don't really do that anymore. But heck, as I seem to be in the process of picking up old habits I might just be tempted again...

It's nice to see so many old and even more new faces. And they changed the boards too, how about that... Very nice. I'm sure I will miss the old layout for a while, but as long as there are still fiŽsta friday's I should be okay!

forgot to do this... old newbie, new oldbie, former forum member on the old boards [In reply to] Can't Post

you get the idea. played there as glorfin2, because glorfin was taken and i lacked imagination (others will deny that). I used to be a wiz at eia and at spoofing the poetry of the Hobbit for sastl. Been known to moot.
Got married and another degree in the interim. Still prefer being under trees to anywhere else in the world.
Can't think of anything else atm.
I'll be around.
Oh, and i also revived an old bad habit and re-registered "me" in barli's. Pronoun wars amuse me.
Book fan first, like the movies, but still prefer books. And got into rather heated discussions about the casting of Arwen, the portrayal and placement of elves, the killing of Haldir, survived the footer wars, etc.
narf since i was 12.
Later,
Glorfin, me, ...

Glorfin has no footer. Glorfin needs no footer.
