In exchange for the Riddle- Can't Post

I'll give you an answer-

I must say you guys solved my, perhaps, ill-conceived riddle quite fast (I'm ashamed, actually) and got the date and times right. Nevertheless, the powers of red tape extended the process for hours and days longer.

But now its all done-

I'm confirmed and signed as the HOBBIT (SES) and I hope to join your community form this day forth-

Now I''ll go and have a second breakfast to celebrate!

Yours Truly

GDT

yay! [In reply to] Can't Post

Welcome to Middle-earth!!!
I'm so happy that a director has been assigned to "The Hobbit" and sequel! I just watched Pan's Labyrinth, it was quite good, and I feel really good about you directing these movies!!! I also am very happy to see that Weta will be involved, seeing as that they played such a huge part in "The Lord of the Rings". Any ideas yet on actors for the role of Bilbo? Keep us posted! The fate of Middle-earth rests in your hands!!!

Theres some good in this world, Mr. Frodo, and its worth fighting for.

In Good Hands [In reply to] Can't Post

When it was announced that Peter would not direct the Hobbit your name came immediately to my mind (I was the first to mention you on TORN.)
I love your work and I think the Professor's story is in good hands.

Fantastic! [In reply to] Can't Post

We were all getting a bit twitchy when no news came through, so it's great to hear that it's all signed and official.

It's just past midnight here in the UK, so I reckon it's the perfect time for an early Fiesta Friday- cheers everyone! Here's to four more wonderful years of Middle Earth magic!

"Behold!" [In reply to] Can't Post

"Then Iluvatar said to them: Of the theme that I have declared to you, I will now that ye make in harmony together a Great Music...ye shall show forth your powers in adorning this theme, each with his own devices, if he will. But I will sit and hearken, and be glad that through you great beauty has been wakened into song." - The Silmarillion

Welcome Mr. Del Toro, thank you Mr. Jackson and Ms. Walsh, thank you New Line and Mr. Emerich, and all blessings and good luck upon everyone involved in the telling of these beloved stories. I can't wait to see what you all accomplish.

It WAS on MONDAY, and not today, but it was delayed, so it DID turn out to be TODAY and I just won by default?

Congratulations! I'm glad you're onboard! Best wishes of luck!

And since I have the chance to say it here; Thank you for Pan's Labyrinth, I really liked it! (apart from the most violent parts, but I guess that's what the fast forward button is for...)

So, any more riddles for us?? Wink


Enjoy your second breakfast! Don't forget to have some cake!
