Sir Richard Taylor a finalist for New Zealander of the Year Can't Post

The founder of Wellington's World Of WearableArt, a Hutt Hospital-trained plastic surgeon who specialises in helping those with skin cancer and Weta Workshop's Sir Richard Taylor have all been named finalists in the annual New Zealander of the Year awards.

The full story is here.

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

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauronís 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 b*****d with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.

Sir Richard is MY New Zealander of the year! [In reply to] Can't Post

But then, I haven't been hosted at a hobbit-themed lunch in a room lined with awards and figurines by any of the other finalists, who, I'm sure, also do great work and are affable, enthusiastic individuals. Smile

Do we walk in legends or on the green earth in the daylight?

A man may do both. For not we but those who come after will make the legends of our time. The green earth, say you? That is a mighty matter of legend, though you tread it under the light of day!

This year and Every Year! Excellent :D // [In reply to] Can't Post



I really need these new films to take me back to, and not re-introduce me to, that magical world.
