Kel's got questions! [In reply to] Can't Post

1. What Middle-earth name would you give to your car?
I call my '95 Toyota Corolla the Bluebird, but a good Hobbity name for it would be Sam, it's dependable!

2. What's your favourite way of unwinding after a stressful day?
Answer quiz questions on TORn. Wink And read junior-level books; working in a school library has advantages! I've already read this year's Newbery and Caldecott winners and honor books.

3. Why did you choose the nick you use on TORn?
I've had this nick since around 1970, when my high school friends and I gave each other Tolkien-type nicknames. We weren't too sure of meanings, but I was shy and preferred to sit off to the side, sort of "hidden" from the action, thus dern+wyn.

4. This on is gramma inspired, what's your favourite way of serving ice-cream?
Take spoon, open container, scoop out one spoonful, close container, walk off slowly licking the ice cream off the spoon.

5. Do you sing in the shower? And if you do, what sort of songs?
Five-thirty in the morning is too early to sing, my brain's not yet awake! I wait until I'm in the car, then turn the tape deck up full blast and sing or hum along if I'm in the mood. My most recent taped copies include some Ralph Vaughan Williams, the Carmina Burana, and of course the Hobbit soundtrack.

I need that sticker too. [In reply to] Can't Post

The car is my favorite place to sing-especially if I'm alone. I can just belt it out without worrying about anyone hearing or hitting the wrong notes. Cool

One by one they faded, and fell into shadow...

One book to rule them all
One book to find them
One book to bring them all
And in TORn bind them
In the land of TORnadoes...where the brilliant play

You know [In reply to] Can't Post

either I just really enjoy annoying my neighbours or I'm odd (no comments you lot!!!) but I'll sing out loud and strong when I'm at home, not in the shower though, with my music either on the iPod or on my PC. Mind you I also have the volume up HIGH on the surround sound!! CoolCool Only do it when it's just me and the menfolk though, so anyone else coming here is safe Laugh

Oh and I also sing in the car Smile
