the wise woman of Gondor [In reply to] Can't Post

  1. Name:
  2. Ioreth
  3. Address:
  4. 42 Sixth Circle, Minas Tirith, Anorien, Gondor
  5. Career Goal:
  6. Head of the Houses of Healing
  7. Prior Occupation:
  8. Gardener in Lossarnach for Forlong the Fat -- you wouldn't believe how many vegetables we had to grow for him.
  9. Career Highlights:
  10. Eradicating weeds from Forlong's garden -- the dandelions and kingsfoil were the hardest to get rid of.
  11. Hobbies:
  12. Learning old sayings. "The feet of the king are..." Wait, that's not right. I'll come back to that.
  13. Pets:
  14. Since moving to Minas Tirith, there's a family of cats always hanging around. Sometimes they disappear for days at a time, but they always find their way home, even in a blind night, as they say.
  15. Travel Interests:
  16. Moving from Lossarnach to Anorien was quite enough travel, thank you very much. I'd rather have my cousins travel to me.
  17. Favorite Book:
  18. "101 Uses for Herbs"
  19. Favorite Film:
  20. "Garden State"
  21. Weight and Height:
  22. I hardly think that is an appropriate question!
  23. Hair Color:
  24. Black, with distinguished grey highlights.
  25. Race:
  26. Lossarnachian
  27. Mode of Transportation:
  28. Feet, though I rode a pony all the way from Lossarnach
  29. Pet Peeve:
  30. Kingsfoil in the garden!
  31. Top Three Strengths:
  32. Knowing herbs, knowing old sayings ("The elbows of the king are the..." no, that's not right either.), knowing how to impress my cousins
  33. Top Three Weaknesses:
  34. Can't keep Forlong the Fat out of the vegetable store, can't keep these cats from eating the herbs, can't keep the kingsfoil out of the garden
  35. Role Model:
  36. Finduilas of Dol Amroth -- one of these days I need to figure out what she does with her hair!
  37. What you'd like to be remembered for:
  38. Well, if the king should return and need to heal somebody, I'd like to be remembered for helping him! Of course that's not too likely, so as long as I'm better remembered than my cousins I'll be happy.
  39. Favorite quote or saying:
  40. "The fingers of the king are..." No, wait, "The thumbs..."
  41. Why GDT should hire you:
  42. He'll need a healer around for when those dwarves trip over themselves and fall down the mountains.


For instance, on the planet Earth, man had always assumed that he was more intelligent than dolphins because he had achieved so much -- the wheel, New York, wars, and so on -- while all the dolphins had ever done was muck about in the water having a good time. But conversely, the dolphins had always believed that they were far more intelligent than man, for precisely the same reasons. -- Douglas Adams

******************************************
The audacious proposal stirred his heart. And the stirring became a song, and it mingled with the songs of Gil-galad and Celebrian, and with those of Feanor and Fingon. The song-weaving created a larger song, and then another, until suddenly it was as if a long forgotten memory woke and for one breathtaking moment the Music of the Ainur revealed itself in all glory. He opened his lips to sing and share this song. Then he realized that the others would not understand. Not even Mithrandir given his current state of mind. So he smiled and simply said "A diversion.”
