TORn's One Expected Party is one week from today! Can't Post

Let's see a show of hands of how many of you will be there!

What are you going to wear to the Party?

Have you heard Billy Boyd's Band Beecake's music before?

What surprises are you hoping to happen during the Party?

omg.... this is getting real, folks!

I'll be there in a floor-length dress. Cripes, I haven't worn a dress in over 3 years! Beecake is seriously wonderful... especially their version of World Without Sunday's music (they played at the 2004 Oscars Party), and I'd LOVE it if the cast and crew from The Hobbit could drop by and say hi ;)

I've been packing and panicking all day!

All in! [In reply to] Can't Post

I'll be there! This is a big cross-country adventure for me, and I am out of my mind excited. I'm the quiet, observer type, so this is a wild and crazy step out of my comfort zone. I hope to meet other Ringers and make a few friends. I'd love to see some of the cast and crew and give them a heart felt thank you (collective Ringer round of applause and maybe some happy tears). I am familiar with Beecake's tunes; I have their albums loaded for my trip.

I have a tea length dress that I plan to wear, no costume for me this year. Here's to packing! I have no hope of keeping my bag under 50 pounds!

Hand up [In reply to] Can't Post

dragging...uh... bringing my daughter with me.

Have heard Billy and his band before.... also Emerald Rose and the LOTR One Man show.... all were great (prefer Emerald Rose)

Will drive down on Sunday.... hoping to get a more complete timeline for the LOTR show etc before we come.

I missed the ROTK party because some people crashed PayPal and I was stuck at work with limited access to internet anyway, but was at the first two Oscar Parties and all the ORCs.

Can't wait to see you again! [In reply to] Can't Post

When will you be arriving in LA?

"The Hobbits bowed low. 'Most gracious host', said Frodo, 'It was said to me by Elrond Half-Elven that I should find friendship upon the way, secret and unlooked for. Certainly I have found no such friendship as you have shown. To have found it turns evil to great good."

Mid-day Friday!! :D [In reply to] Can't Post

I can't wait to see you, too! I'm hoping my flight goes smoothly... a bit of a short-time trot from one gate to the next at Dallas/Ft Worth; but I know I'll get to LA eventually :)

Giddy! [In reply to] Can't Post

Brian & I will be there! We live about an hour away and we'll be staying at the hotel next door. We've had this planned since the Return of the One party, even though there was no Hobbit movie. We just knew after the last one, we were so going to be at this one.

We are quiet as well, but open to meeting fun new people and maybe seeing some familiar faces from the past. I'm excited to watch The Oscars as well, we make a point to see them all so we'll see how well we did with the App.

Last party we were at was in 2011 in NY at The Gin Mill. We were going on a cruise and heard this was there, so grabbed tix to that and brought our friends as well.

I have two outfits I'm bringing, a long gown that's sparkly and feels like pajamas and then a short cocktail dress that is fun. I'll probably go with the PJ's. :) Last time I was in a skin tight thing and was SO UNCOMFORTABLE and I do like to partake in the pints and grub. Brian is wearing his blue coat and he still hasn't picked a tie or shirt ::rolling eyes:::.

Sorry so many words, I'm just totally excited.Blush

...in a longish no-slv black dress & gold-twiney-leaves necklace, same one I wore to TTOP :)
(...and with a slight cold unfortunately tho' maybe over it by then.) ;)

Soooo looking forward to it... been 10 yrs, a long wait for more Middle Earth from PJ, and TORN parties, but very glad it's all finally here -- totally worth celebrating! Oh, and those Oscars, too. ;)

Tis been a long time since I've seen so many people (and I've been pretty MIA on the boards for years as well). Hope I can find everyone I know in the masses of the party this weekend! Cannot wait!

Do not meddle in the affairs of hobbits for we can bite your kneecaps off!
