Lovely dream! [In reply to] Can't Post


In Reply To
I had a dream with hundreds of large white eggs (almost more than a handful) in nests under trees and on the ground. Though most appeared to be fresh and edible, one hatched when I picked it up.

Thoughts?



How wonderful! How do you feel about eggs? I have a friend who gets violently ill from them, but for me they have positive connotations. If this were my dream, I'd see all of these eggs, laid out within easy reach, as emblems of future hope. When one hatches right in my hand, I could see that as a sight that the good times are already starting to roll! If I had waking-life worries about the future, this would greatly reassure me. If I desired children, such a dream might assure me of the fertile possibilities and that now would be the right time. If I did not desire children, this dream might caution me to take precautions. The fact that I interpret most of the eggs as fresh and edible might also mean nourishment, security, seeing everything taken care of.

A most auspicious dream, in my opinion! Unless, of course, eggs mean something different for you.

Life is beautiful and dangerous! Beware! Enjoy!

Probably should pop in for Homecoming [In reply to] Can't Post

I log in rarely these days and don't post much, but rest assured I'm watching the boards every moment of every day! So no goofing off, you whippersnappers!

No really, I am watching you. All of you. Creepy, eh? A little like a certain little evil overlord, huh? I've written a little desktop widget that alerts me whenever a new thread is posted on Torn (or whenever Guillermo posts, or new posts occur in interesting threads, for that matter).

I've probably just passed my 5-year anniversary recently, so maybe I ought to polish that up as a mathom to y'all.

Anyway, make mine a Leinenkugel's Honey Weiss, please!

Great day to y'all!

Notta

And yes, I'm watching all your replies - *sneaks away*

Fine, thanks [In reply to] Can't Post

I'm spending way too much time in Middle-earth nowadays, and it certainly won't be less when the Mines of Moria expansion is released on Tuesday. Smile I'm in a kinship (LOTRO lingo for "guild") led by a character called Aelric, funnily enough.

Ya! Ya! Ya! Ya! Do you waaaaant...do you waaaaaant...to come back to my place, bouncy bouncy?

What a great treat to see you here! And what cute, CUTE kittens. Eight of them?! Lol, I bet it's never a dull moment. LaughSmile

It's nice to hear life is treating you well and that you still visit the RR from time to time. We miss you and hope you stop by more often!

*hugs and cheers* dear!! Smile

Happy Fiesta! [In reply to] Can't Post

Howdy and happy weekend to all, new and ol...er, not-so-new TORnfolks!

Here's to those who are a bit under the weather for whatever reason (Sil, Clan Laire, Mr. and Mrs. SirD). Hope things get better soon! Smile

I'll have a cup of sugar with a little tea, thank you.

Cheers, friends!

Happy Aloha Friday [In reply to] Can't Post

I found out through the grape vine about this Shindig today. I have been out of the loop here since the Summer. First the Olympics got my attention, then the Democratic Convention.. After that, I have been volunteering for the Obama Campaign nearly 7 days a week.

It was Hawaii's job to call Nevada. After thousands of calls day after day by lots of volunteers — though in the early days I was often the only one there — the solidly red state of Nevada went blue on election night!

I was at the official DNC Party in Honolulu at the Pearl Ultra Lounge at Ala Moan Center. I was so stunned when I first heard the announcement... it was crowded and loud and I couldn't believe what I heard... I didn't trust it... it was too early in the night... the last two elections were too painfully lost... then it sunk in... I exploded with excitement, screaming, crying, hugging, crying, screaming. crying.

When Nevada went blue, there was almost as much excitement in the room, half of which was filled with those of us volunteers making those endless calls. I left exhausted around 8pm before they announced the Hawaii results.

I did manage to squeeze in time here and there with my Tolkien group. two birthday parties. Bilbo & Frodo's birthday... and of course Halloween. We dress up in costume and walk the length of Waikiki. This has become an annual city tradition. All the tourists take pictures. We did a Harry Potter theme this year. About a dozen or so of us… I was Luna Lovegood, lion hat and all. We're in photo albums around the world cuz we have been doing this a while. Sometimes we do Lord of the Rings theme... of mixed HP / LotR. We have a member who is really good with costumes. Our robes are all superbly done. We look good!


I have not spent time with my Grand daughter for weeks and I am over due.

Anyway… I am glad I heard about this party. I have never been to a Fiesta that didn't close.

I may come back with some picts!

HAPPY ALOHA FRIDAY TO EVERYONE!

You're very missed around here, but glad to hear you're, erm, watching. Laugh

I think a 5-year mathom is definitely called for, whatever it may be.

Speaking of things that are called for (to celebrate your return):



Looks yummy! *grabs another bottle and a glass*

is the FM? This cold weather can't be helping much. I suppose you've tried homeopathy and Chinese Herbal Medicine?



How kind of you to ask! My pain-levels have actually come down close to baseline, so I'm feeling almost coltish! Here in the desert we're supposed to hit the low 80's today, temperature-wise (farenheit.) As for remedies, the best herbals I've found for me are ginger and chia seed.
