Oh, when I saw this [In reply to] Can't Post

I thought you were looking for writers for the Tolkienia Times. But if this is a bona fide kilt inspector position, then yes, sign me up! I was watching a Scottish pipe band last weekend and did make note of their kilt pins, so am all ready to go. Cool


P.S. Oh wait, I'm not one of her Majesty's subjects, can I still apply?

Golden apples aside. *Ahem*.

Especially as the Tolkienia Times will be reporting that there is a new Kilt Ordinance for visiting Dwarves/Dwarf Thespians/Thespians Who Have Been Dwarves. (<-----look there, I just reported it.) *waves to the Mayor* Don't you just love how unbiased The Press is? Laugh

Kilts came up in the RR as an Official Outfit earlier this year:

The Original Kilt Thread



And somehow we just keep getting back to discussing them:



A Recent Kilt Chat

And there is a lovely image of the House of Durin (along with Dwalin) very fetchingly kilted which we may have looked at once or twice.

Meneldor, being wise to the ways of frivolity, figured it was time for some more. Which is quite correct.Cool Oh and a Kilt Shop is opening up in our temporal town, Tolkienia. So its very timely news too.

I don't know about the others... [In reply to] Can't Post

but Dwalin has been far too busy raiding, plotting, collecting money, and carving people while dressed in a "real" kilt to visit your land. However, if he *should* turn up...and bring a handsome new friend along...? EVERYBODY BACK OFF! I will SMITE you if you touch him! ;) The lad is mine. Mine.

How's this for a start? [In reply to] Can't Post

There once was a dwarf in a kilt
Who was really quite very well built
Kilt pin was attached
Hair flowing, unmatched
Who caused all the fangirls to tilt

Alrighty then. [In reply to] Can't Post

The RR looks like an interesting place! I've always thought kilts make a cute fashion statement so I may have to don one myself and check it out sometime.Cool I'll have to do quite a bit of reading before I can join in on in-depth discussions like that first one though. That was really quite something!

Thanks for explaining.Smile

Due to the strong winds and an underwear shortage, all kilts have been banned until further notice. Evil

(Almost) No reading required. [In reply to] Can't Post

A general familiarity with the text is helpful, but most of it is interpretation and opinion. We all agree on what the text says, so there is no real debate on the content.

Besides, we are not a judgmental group. I've been set straight more than once, with no hard feelings. It really is the best place to brush up on your lore, mostly by just listening.

Hope to see you around!
