*unlocks doors* It's time for Fiesta Friday - and a Special Announcement! Can't Post

Greetings to one and all! Our esteemed barmistress, Altaira, is, alas, swamped with other duties today, and might not be able to join us. Unsure

So on her behalf, and on behalf of all of us Admins, I should like to make a Special Announcement:

It gives us great pleasure to present to you all our newest Forum Admin, Rosie-with-the-Ribbons! Congratulations, Rosie!

(Yes, that means she now has a pair of those special glasses. Wink)


Please join me in raising a mug of proper 1420 to her and let us know what you have been up to this week or will be up to, this weekend?

Congratulations Rosie-with-the-Ribbons! [In reply to] Can't Post

You will do an awesome job, I am sure of it. Can we hide some spam on the boards for you to sniff out, and break you in? Wink

I have 5 days left until I leave for South Georgia. If I'm honest, I am incredibly excited, but also slightly anxious. A 4 day trip on a shipping vessel doesn't sit well with me. Laugh

What are your plans for the weekend dernwyn?

Have a great weekend everyone.

YAY! Pink champagne with an paper umbrella for me! [In reply to] Can't Post

The best way to celebrate is with champagne, and to make iit especially festive, paper umbrellas.

Welcome, Rosie! And Congratulations!

Thank you [In reply to] Can't Post

Feeling very honoured to join the ranks of the admirable admins.
So now, puts on my very stern secretary look (and my boss is terrified of the look, mind you), I'm a radiant sunbeam, so trolls... turn to stone now. And all the rest, behave!! otherwise I will tangle you in my ribbons.
I think my job is done, all should be quiet now Wink

Have a great weekend everybody!

I'll be visiting my parents tomorrow, shopping with my mum, very important.
And Sunday I'll be hoping my class mates did their part of the homework so I can combine all of the work and we can hand in our homework assignment (have I ever mentioned how I hate group work at school, seems I'm the only one doing stuff).

5 days! [In reply to] Can't Post

How much luggage are you taking with you? Or maybe I should say, are you allowed to take!

Best of luck with the travel, and always, write when you can! Smile

As for me...lots of baking tomorrow, we're having a party for a friend who's celebrating a professional anniversary on Sunday! Cool

Rather not [In reply to] Can't Post

or you should PM me and say where you hid it, so I know where to look and I'm sure I won't be deleting something not spam-ish from an honest visitor (I have to find me way around all the new things).

Good luck on your trip. Sounds exciting and I can understand you are a bit anxious. I always am before a big trip. And I'm absolutely not joining you on a vessel, absolute motion sickness, yuk.

Congratulations, Rosie WTR! [In reply to] Can't Post

Always great to have another admin.
*rubs hands together* It's cold here today! A heavy frost last night so I've got the fire stoked up. A hot rum toddy would be a treat, as I am fighting a chest cold and have a another day of celebration tomorrow -- it's hubby's 65th birthday and so we're having a big family gathering. Fortunately my daughter is in her element organizing such things so I just have to participate. I told him this is the last one now he's officially a senior!

Hi everyone!

Congrats to you, Rosie-with-the-Ribbons!

All is well with me. I want to start being on TORN more regularly again, though! I've missed you all!

My weekend plans include finally taking down Christmas decorations, and singing in my choir concert (Poulenc's *Gloria* and *Stabat Mater*).

Hope all of you have been well and enjoying this Hobbit-y time!

congrats to Rosie! [In reply to] Can't Post

And I hope this means we'll be seeing more of her (in regards to posting and not just silent admin-ing) around here. I've missed her. :-)

It is cloudy and warm (35F) here and it's been raining. But starting tonight a cold snap will roll in and drive us close to zero when all those puddles will freeze. I'm glad I got groceries and the car filled up yesterday.

A few days ago, I wanted to watch The Hobbit one more time and use up the balance of a gift card I had. I decided to go to a 3:30 matinee instead of a 11:00 am one and that gave me time for the dreaded 'look for another job' routine. But... I found a job listing for library aides for which I think I'm pretty 'qualified'. More qualified than most of the other jobs I see listed out there. I know there will be a ton of applicants and anyone that speaks another language will surely be bumped to the top of the list since Minneapolis, at least, (within the county library system) has a lot of immigrants. But it's the first time I've felt anything but discouraged in a while. Why does it take hours to apply for one job? I always wonder that when I'm done. But I'm happy with the application I submitted.

And I enjoyed the Hobbit movie when I saw it later in the day.

I am trying to get a few Mathom-house items attended to and I feel like my LOTR soundtrack site has been neglected for too long. So those two items, along with a dozen household tasks, will beckon me this weekend.

Cheers again to Rosie. :-)

Couldn't happen to a nicer person. You deserve it.

I could lend you my old fraternity paddle that has been already been broken in (mostly on meUnimpressed) that might come in handy with the 'what-were-all' that happens to wander in from the wild. A two handed grip is the most effective lol.

*waves* Hi, HH! [In reply to] Can't Post

Good to see you! I've been more absent from TORn than I like lately, too.

*ponders storage containers in various rooms* Getting the rest of the Christmas decorations down... I need to get on it!

Have a wonderful concert!

Hi, dernwyn! [In reply to] Can't Post

Tea for me, as I watch the long-hoped-for snow fall. We're finally getting back into routine here after the holidays, just in time for our routine to (potentially) change. Beamer (my daughter) may start taking two of her classes online, and I'm contemplating a research project that would continue the work I started with my Master's thesis.

Change is the one constant in life - have a great weekend!

Here it started getting colder today. First time of frost since the beginning of December. Had to look for my scarf and gloves this morning.
