Happy (almost) 2013! It's an (almost) new year's Fiesta! Can't Post

Wow! It's the end of 2012 already, and what a 2012 it's been! We've had the opening of the first Hobbit Movie (and the announcement that there are two more to come), the TORn Hobbit special edition magazine, a staff member (MrCere) resident on the set (look for his upcoming reports, as everything he has permission to report on has to do with the next two movies), trailers, conventions, interviews...whew! Better yet, in 2013 we have the next Hobbit movie to look forward to, more conventions, more interviews as well as the upcoming oscar party in L.A. on the night of the Academy Awards: The One Expected Party.

The champagne is flowing freely in the champagne fountain and all libations are on the house today, so grab your favorite and let us know what your plans are for the weekend, for new year's eve and beyond!

*kicks juke bosx* a rousing rendition of "Auld Lang Syne" by Mariah Carey fills the room.

Happy weekend and Happy New Year everyone!! CoolHeartSmile

I am totally ready for 2013. 2012 has been an excellent year (topped off with a brilliant Middle-earth film), and now I am counting down the days until I go on my very own adventure.

Happy New Year!

An almost happy new year! [In reply to] Can't Post

Does this mean I can have some almost-champagne tonight? Tongue (Seriously---I have some hard cider in the fridge, left over from Christmas.)

Right now, though, I'll just grab a peppermint latte to try and wake myself up. We're actually having winter here in North Texas, with snow on Christmas Day and now a dark, misty, and cold day, zzzzz.... Fortunately I don't have any deadlines, other than self-imposed ones, although I can be a pretty tough boss at times Smile

Tomorrow we're joining a friend who we first met at opening day of The Two Towers, nine years ago, to see The Hobbit again, this time in 3D HFR.

Here's to all the wonderful moments of 2012, and here's to 2013---may it have many, many more happy moments than sad ones!

Hugs to all my TORnsibs HeartEvil

Plenty of 'almost' champagne around here [In reply to] Can't Post

It all depends on how good your imagination is, and I suspect yours is right up there with the best of them! Laugh

How very cool that you made a friend at the Two Towers and have kept in touch. Enjoy seeing the movie in 3D HFR. We loved it!

Personally I'm not sure where the year's gone - I seem to have packed an awful lot into it. Hope everyone enjoys the last few days of 2012, and here's to a wonderful 2013! *Raises glass of champagne*

Oh right, it is Friday [In reply to] Can't Post

I'm more lost than usual as to what day it is over this holiday season! Looking forward to the new year as well. Finally got to take the g'son to see The Hobbit and we both loved it, although he was a little freaked out by Gollum. I'm hoping for a return viewing but there are so many movies out right now that I want to see and I know I will not get to them all, let alone repeat viewings.
The other side of the family is coming over tomorrow so we'll have some more Christmas for a couple of days.

Champagne sounds great, Altaira, thanks!

I know I've forgotten a few holiday season Fiestas. Blush Luckily, my great substitute bartenders always stepped in.
