Can I just say I got the Best Anniversary Present Ever yesterday? Can't Post

Eight years ago yesterday (at least, yesterday here in NZ, which is today in the US, which just gets confusing) Mr. Ro and I got married. Peter Jackson, bless him, arranged the workings of the universe so that opening day of The Hobbit here was on our anniversary. What better way to celebrate? Mr. Ro and I got to spend three hours together, no kids (!!!), immersed in a long-expected visit to Middle-earth. What a treat! And how appropriate, given that we wouldn't have had an anniversary to celebrate if it weren't for the LOTR movies in the first place.

And I just have to say something else too: I take back every last bit of fun I ever poked at anyone for being a Dwarf Fancier. Pervy or otherwise. I apologize, wholeheartedly and unreservedly. You were just a little ahead of your time. "Hot Dwarf" is no longer an oxymoron. At least, depending on the Dwarf. Anyone fancying female Dwarves, however, is still fair game.

Happy anniversary!

And yes, 'hot Dwarves' is now an entirely understandable phenomenon. Going into the movie I was a Fili-fancier, but having seen Aidan Turner in action I can see why he has an enormous fan following.

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 beggar with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.

What a treat to be able to spend three hours in Middle-earth on such a special day. You may remember that you were married on the Gaffer's and my 33rd wedding anniversary (you could say our marriage had 'come of age' Wink), therefore today is our anniversary, too. But no Hobbit until Friday, I'm afraid.

I'm really looking forward to seeing these new versions of dwarves, too!

Many happy returns of your anniversary! [In reply to] Can't Post

'Twas a match made in Middle-earth - literally! And the opening date of The Hobbit proves it! Smile

It's a dangerous business, you know, opening the Tolkien door...you step into TORn, and there is no knowing where you might be swept off to! Heart

Hugs to you, and all the little Dunedains!

And right back atcha, Lily! [In reply to] Can't Post

I hope you two enjoy your special day. We have a lot of years to go to catch up with you! Perhaps you and the Gaffer can share a belated anniversary treat of The Hobbit on Friday?

And your nick suddenly made me smile...Eldarion's best friend is a girl in his class named Lily. He's going to miss her terribly over the upcoming summer holidays when he won't get to see her every day (we live far out of town), and he's hoping to have her over for a sleepover. (!!!) He also rides a pony named Lily, and lilies are among his favorite flowers. Clearly Lily is a lovely name! :-)

Oh! Good grief! [In reply to] Can't Post

Geez RO & NZ, it is actually alarming how time has eagle-winged you guys down the road to your wonderful 8th wedding anniveresary all the way past the lotr's into Bilbo and Dwarf land where dragons exist, WHERE you can partake in a glorious 2fer. GLORY BE!. So guys have a ball on your special daySmile

One other side note celebration brought to light with your benchmark event (which i remember witnessing being here on TORn) is that i have (due to inherent ambiguity trying to resolve forever) realized i have been HERE then over 8 years!. So guys thank you very much for my being able to finally realize that fact.

.....Yes:), i still remember that picture of you all.....

We have our tickets and I have my LotR T-shirt all washed and ready to go.

Let's not forget that Harry Potter's mother is named Lily.

Obviously Eldarion has good taste. Lily is so close to my actual name, Lillian, that I'll answer to it---and sometimes, when I introduce myself, that's what people hear. Fine by me! I like having a hobbit flower name. Smile

I'm not ashamed to admit that returning here to see this thread just brought all of the memories from that wondrous weekend (and that whole year, really, taking into account TORn Moot ATL) rushing back to the surface in a flood of tears.
