My computer's had so much champagne that the poor thing's dizzy; if the font seems out of focus, that's why.

Gardeners with wheelbarrows [In reply to] Can't Post

Hey, are those gardeners with wheelbarrows on the horizon? And how come I can't seem to dislodge myself from this lawn-chair?

LOL! [In reply to] Can't Post

Are they starting the cleanup already? Tongue

Silverlode

"Of all faces those of our familiares are the ones both most difficult to play fantastic tricks with, and most difficult really to see with fresh attention. They have become like the things which once attracted us by their glitter, or their colour, or their shape, and we laid hands on them, and then locked them in our hoard, acquired them, and acquiring ceased to look at them.
Creative fantasy, because it is mainly trying to do something else [make something new], may open your hoard and let all the locked things fly away like cage-birds. The gems all turn into flowers or flames, and you will be warned that all you had (or knew) was dangerous and potent, not really effectively chained, free and wild; no more yours than they were you."

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

I suppose that their contract says they're supposed to start clean-up after the weekend, but how can they when not all the barrels have been emptied and some of the feast still lingers on the table? I just saw one come back with arms full of mugs to pass out to the others. Oh, and there's the head butler from Thranduil's house, on loan to help keep the tavern running after our lovely Altaira became too...er...horizontal to continue her duties. This might take awhile.

*mixes up a belated dirty Stoli martini from the never-ending vodka bottle* [In reply to] Can't Post

Thank goodness for the eternal nature of the Fiesta bar!

I missed the party proper, but the bar never closes! I always seem to miss the cool stuff, though: TheOneRing Party, the major moots, Altaira’s Map….Had to go out of town to visit my elderly mom this time. We go twice a year to check on her, make repairs around her house, and try to cheer her up. Impossible, that last bit, but we try. I’m slowly catching up here, though. What a wonderful party! Especial appreciation to our barkeep! Hooray, Altaira!

Were you removing that popcorn texture stuff? [In reply to] Can't Post

UT and I want to do that. I suggested we do it ourselves (I saw a scraper for it at a store), but he thinks it’s beyond our powers. We’re definitely not handymen. What think you?

Your weekend [In reply to] Can't Post

was definitely the way to go. I think it's lovely that you give such practical, hands-on help to your mother - I know I could do with a handyman around the house and I'm in my 30s!

I'm definitely not the handy one in this marriage. [In reply to] Can't Post

I helped turn a mattress and held up a window blind for UT. That's about all the help I could be. UT is an excellent son-in-law.

And no, he can't come over and fix your stuff. :D

TORn's 10th Anniversary and Founders Day Collection [In reply to] Can't Post

On April 26, 1999, TheOneRing.net (TORn) was born and quickly became the place to go to find news, pictures or discussion about J.R.R. Tolkien or all things film-related as Peter Jackson prepared for and filmed The Lord of the Rings. Created by Xoanon (Michael Regina-Canada); Calisuri (Chris Piortta-U.S.); Erica Challis (Tehanu-NZ); and William Thomas (Corvar-U.S.), TORn is still going strong and is enjoying the anticipation of Jackson's adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien's The Hobbit.

TORn's actual 10th Anniversary is on April 26, 2009, but the party spanned from Fiesta Friday on the 24th thru Monday the 27th. On Sunday, April 26th, the festivities turned from an Anniversary Party into the first official Founders Day observance; which will be honoured annually until the last ship sails into the West.

Unbeknownst to our Fearless Leaders and most of the TORn community, the lead-up to the Party was hinted at and teased by some brilliant footer pics created by Magpie that randomly appeared without explanation in message-board posts by some conspirators. A new footer appeared each day starting 9 days out from the official start of the party on April 24th, followed by an announcement of the first official Founders Day on April 26th. The weekend was filled with games, memories, and salutations by notables and long-lost siblings of the TORn family.

The following are the majority of the links to our 10th Anniversary Party and our first Founders Day Celebration. Enjoy :)

I think I've been on most of this time, since before Movie #1 [In reply to] Can't Post

 

I can't remember exactly how long I've been using TORN, but I was here well before Fellowship of the Ring came out, when we were all hunting online for news reports

particularly since the new boards changed I don't know when I registered, but even then, I was reading the news feed on a daily basis for months before I joined the messageboard

at first I wasn't sure which LOTR fansite to go to (there were dozens in the initial explosion, well now too, but then none had the semi-legitimacy TORN has now that the production team gives news here) ......but I've been here since at least 2000, and I remember that happy excited feeling of looking through the spy set reports for how locations in FOTR would look, then debating (endlessly) how accurate it was to the books (in some cases, its like the images were taken out of my head when I was reading it)
