I'm up to my eyeballs in final exams. [In reply to] Can't Post

So just a quick hello.

Those of you who know Rocky Mountain National park may be interested in these photos and videos of Moraine Park: http://www.enjoyestespark.com/blog/?p=8036 And here's a map of the burn area, including the part that's contained: map. It finally snowed up there today, so that should help.

The east side of the park has been closed. I'm itching to get up there, but it will have to wait.

Yes by this time next week I'll have it seen it once [In reply to] Can't Post

and if it's as good as I think it is... twice!

Midnight showing in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area at the theater my daughter works at. They just put in a new leather-seats auditorium and I'm gonna see it 3D/HFR. That's right, livin' on the edge. Pour me a milkshake, barkeep!

Arthur: What manner of man are you that can summon up fire without flint or tinder?
Tim: I... am an enchanter.
Arthur: By what name are you known?
Tim: There are some who call me... 'Tim'...?
Arthur: ...greetings, Tim the Enchanter.

Hey, TORn'ers... [In reply to] Can't Post

...What's my Friday been like? Well, I've watched TONS of Hobbit footage (mostly several times over), celebrated my 6 year wedding anniversary, and released my first book! Eventful Friday for me ;-)

I made it! Too bad I have to serve myself, but I'll take what I can get!! [In reply to] Can't Post

Helping myself to hot cocoa. The weather is wet and cold here and something hot hits the spot! I'm glad to have this weather now instead of last weekend. Last weekend, we spent a good chunk of the day participating in the town Christmas parade. Everybody in the family marched. One kid in band, one kid in Scouts, I chaparoned the Scout and my husband marched along taking pics for the local paper. I bet we looked great!! The weather cooperated, that's for sure (low 60's all day and no rain). The bands sounded great, both junior and senior high, and the Scouts behaved. What a relief to have that over. This weekend I can finally start(!) my holiday shopping and begin my Christmas candy-making for the family (peanut brittle and marshmallow fudge this weekend). Next weekend, I'll make the chocolate caramels. MMMMMmmmm!! Evil

Congrats to all our ToRN sibs who are seeing the culmination of many years of hard work. Best of luck in the future!!

I'm in the midst of exams myself, [In reply to] Can't Post

and if I'm lucky, I might find my way out to the western parts of Canada this coming summer again. AND if I'm even more lucky, I could find myself isolated somewhere in the wilderness as the Rockies (though I highly doubt it). Tongue

Just finished [In reply to] Can't Post

a night of hanging out with my brother (talking about the future and other life-provoking thoughts) while watching Pete's King Kong (extended on blu-ray). Just figured I'd drop by TORn for a couple swift words before departing for the next while, as I do have exams to cover before The Hobbit premieres (and plenty of my own writing in between).

Have a good weekend, all! Smile

Congratulations on your new house! [In reply to] Can't Post

We bought a house not so long ago - having some teething problems (it's a new build, so it's not surprising). I hope your move goes ok in January!

Lovely house as well.Smile

They're not the Dwarven style ones - they're just green with The Hobbit written on them.

Still, for a freebie, I can't complain.

We cheated ... [In reply to] Can't Post

Shared ownership is such a massive help. So we didn't buy outright, instead we own a certain percentage of the property.

We had massive problems with our previous landlord. Renting can be great if you get the right price and the right landlord. I imagine renting is quite cheap up north?

Oh i see [In reply to] Can't Post

That sounds like quite a good idea, i have a couple of friends who have done that as well, just to get their foot on the property ladder, renting just seems like such a waste.

Rent in Sheffield is certainly cheaper than London for example but it is still very expensive, especially the student half of the city (which up until the other day i needed to live in), overseas students and southerners pushed up the prices of rented houses!

Up in Cumbria where i plan on moving back to rent is more reasonable - in fact in some parts in really good - i saw advertised a 3 bed semi house, with garage, gardens for only 500 a month! in London that would cost probably 4 times as much!

What is a semi-house? [In reply to] Can't Post

Is it one that shares an internal wall with a separate dwelling?

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.

Yep [In reply to] Can't Post

like a terrace does but only a semi-detached house only does it on one side as its semi detached, lol.

I should have said semi detached but knew Daniel would know what i was going on about, sorry for confusion!

Just checked [In reply to] Can't Post

Flixster again but they still don't have the movie times or tickets available. I'm seeing it in 3D Friday afternoon with my best friend. I will see it again in 2D with my granddaughter but I'm not sure when.

Today I'm going to see a local production of A Christmas Carol with my granddaughter. She's already dressed in her new outfit even though we don't leave for hours.

Happy Hobbit watching all!

Yes I DO know what you mean, my friend :) You got me all wound up with that walk through those magical days :D That Ballroom was one of the most magical times I've ever had... and to share it with you and so many in that family photo feels like it was just yesterday. Rekindled fersher :D

Can you believe this!? I'm still pinching myself!

It's going to be fascinating [In reply to] Can't Post

to see The Hobbit in so many different formats. My first one will be the 24fps, too. I laughed when I saw how many different geeky people you're going to see this with. Then I realzed there's a wonderful common denominator in all of this ;)

I hope you've been having a great weekend!
