I've been having fun for 13 years now! January 8, 2002 Can't Post

It's my 13th TORniversary!!

I want to thank every single soul here (past and present) for giving me the best days of my life :D To celebrate, I've finally got a 1st draft of my Geeky Observations for TH:AUJ posted over on the Hobbit Board.

Here's the link in case you've got a twisted need to read an endless blah-bitty-blah!!

Hugs to one and all... and here's to the next 13 years! THANKS TORN!

Gramma, [In reply to] Can't Post

I just don't know what to say about you except, You Rock!
Please stay around for another 13 years and more. Heart

And well done on the geeky observations. Have they named a seat after you at your local theatre yet? Laugh

Hurrah, Gramma! It's wonderful sharing the boards with you. Although I don't quite know what happened to 2013 and 2014. :)

And many happy returns of your TORniversary, gramma! [In reply to] Can't Post

So do tell: when you were writing the Geeky Observation List for LotR, did you get a strange feeling that you'd be doing the same one day for The Hobbit? Smile

*Hugs*, and may you forever be a hobbit in heart! Heart

Happy Anniversary! At least you know when you joined. . . [In reply to] Can't Post

I can't remember whether I joined in 2000 or early 2001, and I certainly can't remembe the month. My history went away when the new boards were created. I'm at something just over 12 years.

Wowza, 11 years is a long time [In reply to] Can't Post

You better not go away before reaching 13!

Loving the Geeky Observations, may take me a while to get through though. Laugh

..The land of long-forgotten name:
......no man may ever anchor near;
..No steering star his hope may aim,
......for nether Night its marches drear,
..And waters wide no sail may tame,
......with shores encircled dark and sheer.

..O! Haven where my heart would be!
......the waves beat upon thy bar
..For ever echo endlessly,
......when longing leads thy thought afar

Happy TORniversary, gramma! [In reply to] Can't Post

I came to TORn about two weeks later, though I didn't get up the nerve to post until April.

I remember around my tenth viewing of FOTR, someone at work saying how strange that was, I said I read about someone online who has been over 30 times.

I'm so glad you found your way here, and I still enjoy my TIME and BS.

Many congrats to you gramma, your contributions to the site are legion!

Happy TORniversary, Gramma! [In reply to] Can't Post

Your presence makes this place especially wonderful :-)

I'm supposed to be doing work right now, so I only glanced through your list, but I do want to read through it later. It looks like great fun!
