Hello! [In reply to] Can't Post

Greetings!

I'm Jubal, known in realspace as James: I run the Cambridge Tolkien Society (and hold the august title of Steward of Gondor as a result!) and am generally muchly a Tolkien geek. I particularly seem to specialise in knowing & speculating excessive amounts about Dwarves, about whom I have written several papers etc.

*waves awkwardly*

Honoured to be Steward of the Cambridge Tolkien Society
Also Megadux & founder of the Exilian!

Welcome, Jubal. Have you lurked for a while, or are you just jumping in at the deep end like I did?

I'm back.... [In reply to] Can't Post

I've been around since the beginning, though I post mostly on the LOTR forum that began with Decipher.

I feel a little wary about jumping in and posting on the forum, but at some point I won't be able to resist.

I have loved Tolkien for many years, reading LOTR yearly since I was 21 (56 now).

I went to all three LOTR Oscar parties and would love to be at the final one, but alas, Cancer became part of my life, and my money now belongs to numerous Doctor's.

It is good to be back.

Hobbit sized woman quietly entering the room [In reply to] Can't Post

Hello all,Very very new to forums,so will probably make horrendous mistakes and faux pas.
My father used to read The Hobbit to me, now I am reading it to my daughters. I love the films-pure escapism :-)
I live in England,my name is Lou and I am a champion of Orcs,(and all bad guys in general)
Now,where is the Azog Appreciation Thread? ;-)

Orc Sympathizers [In reply to] Can't Post

I think you'll find fellow sympathizers in Lio and Boldog, and if you don't see an appreciation thread, feel free to start one! As a fan of the Sons of Durin line, I'm afraid I won't be able to join you however. Tongue

Hi! [In reply to] Can't Post

Hi, everyone! I've been lurking on and off for years but finally decided to join in on the fun. My real name is Erin - you can call me that or Rineth, I don't mind! I'm from Atlanta, GA and have been a Tolkien fan since 2002 when a wonderful friend at the time convinced me to give Middle-earth another try (I did not get the hype at that point). So I went to the movies and saw TT, was suddenly intrigued, and that Christmas I got the book set and the rest is history!

I'm looking forward to posting and hopefully making some friends here. See you all around! Heart

Greetings :)
I have not been much of a forum person so far, but now that the Hobbit movies ended and left me sad for no movie highlight to look forward anymore (AGAIN!) I need some support :D

I love LotR (obviuosly). I am from Germany but currently live in Spain. I also enjoy video games a lot. Actually all my jobs so far have been related to video games. I have worked for companies Nintendo and Electronic Arts and my favorite game series is Resident Evil.

Looking forward to meet some nice people here and to talk about LotR things, despite working in a very geeky industry I don't know so many LotR fans ^.^

Have a cookie [In reply to] Can't Post

Hi!

I'm a 22-year old from Belgium. I've been a big Tolkien fan since 2005, loving the books and films equally. I'm a big book nerd; I was always that one kid on the playground who was burying her nose in a book, or reading till 4 am in the morning. Right now I am a library assistant, which is pretty much like having an alcoholic working in a brewery...

some facts about me?

I love dancing ridiculously and singing badly.
I watch Doctor Who, Sherlock, and Firefly.
I am currently wearing purple fluffy socks.
I collect books, gems, shells, big yellow tea pots, and David Bowie vinyls.
I always write vinyl "vynil' and then I have to go back and correct it.
I am a cat person all the way.

I have been lurking on this forum for a couple of years now, but it's only with the One Last Party that I decided I should join the forum and make some new friends. I pinky promise I'm a pretty decent human being :)



(me playing Éowyn on mt Sunday. showin' off my Tolkien cred, yo)

Hi, people!

My favourite flavour of ice cream would be raspberries ^^ but it's not my favourite dessert anymore due to a massive binge once. So now I just go for chocolate-covered pastries, like the typical Belgian I am.

I think each personal fact you've listed has had a thread in Off-Topic quite recently. Okay, maybe not one about purple fluffy socks, but...

Oh look what you've done--now I'm blushing in front of everyone. BlushTongue

Anyway, glad to see that you've de-lurked and taken off that magic ring of yours. See you around the boards!

(P.S.- I'm super jealous of your trip to Mt. Sunday. I had the perfect chance to go while there, but didn't do it...hopefully I'll make it back someday.)

I've always wanted to work in a library, but never got the chance... I envy you immensely! Mad

From what you list as your interests, you should fit right in! I, myself, was a lurker for many years, but once I started posting, I just couldn't stop! Laugh

That's me in the corner [In reply to] Can't Post

Hello Cat, Rem and Blackfox! (wow, didn't expect so many people to reply Blush )

@ Blackfox: I must say, you have a really cool avatar. it's eyes seem to follow me everywhere :p

@Cat: Hi! People around here already seem to be super friendly- I think I might hang around a bit ;) Do you have any cats?
(also funny you should say that - I have a lot of LOTR merchandise, but I've always been reluctant to buy the One Ring. I do wear Barahir's ring though)

@Rem: I can only encourage you to work in a library, even if it's just for the librarian perks. Everything's free, you can take home twice as much and for twice as long, you can suggest to your colleagues which materials we should bring into our collection... and you can call first dibs if, for example, they do decide to get rid of that one illustrated copy of Letters from Father Christmas. And I like your avatar as well! Bofur's hat is on my wishlist of things I absolutely MUST buy someday Heart
