LOTR on the Brain. (pic inside) Can't Post

My oldest daughter was goofing around with some candy and showed me this (see below).



Of course, my first thought was: THE HUG OF SAURON!

"I haven't any right to criticise books, and I don't do it except when I hate them. I often want to criticise Jane Austen, but her books madden me so that I can't conceal my frenzy from the reader; and therefore I have to stop every time I begin. Everytime I read 'Pride and Prejudice' I want to dig her up and beat her over the skull with her own shin-bone." - Mark Twain

That's funny! [In reply to] Can't Post

Huge pic, though.

Playing with candy, one of my favorite things. Smile

'Road lead ever on and on
down from the door where it began
now far ahead the road has gone
down from where all began' -FOTR-

and through all the world has changed
the ages come and go with time
and yet those remain unchanged
unto they journey westward
over the sea...

Still figuring out the boards. [In reply to] Can't Post

I was happy to just get it posted. I may have to edit the picture prior to posting to get it sized right.

Or maybe I should just go back to HTML posting of pics.

*sigh* The dull part of change. Unsure

Hi, AE! [In reply to] Can't Post

That's funny!

I'm glad to see you here, I've been watching for you!
(Does that creep you out?)

Now I can give you a proper smilie with its tongue sticking out! Tongue
I still prefer this one, though: :̃

You're braver than I [In reply to] Can't Post

I'm a little nervous about trying things. That and I can't spend as much time as I'd like playing while at work.

That's my story and I'm sticking with it.

Not creeped out at all! [In reply to] Can't Post

I've already spied a few people, you among them, but I haven't replied much because I wanted to get my avatar and other stuff taken care of.

I like the old one, too. I'll be using both. I already have, actually.

Where'd Rush go? ;o) Wink

I pictured someone tripping and falling flat on their face. Crazy

I was starting to wonder if it was something I said. ;)

See, I tried to tell y'all that hugs are evil! (Group hugs, especially.)

*flying tackle hug* [In reply to] Can't Post

gramma!

I've seen you in the distance here, but I'm just getting back into the swing of things.

These boards are cool, are they not? I've been mostly lurking to get the feel of them, but I'm out in the open now. It feels like we moved from poor hobbit's dirt hole into Brandy Hall! I already feel like I've missed a lot.

That's how I am, too. I finally made the leap to try out Altaira's really very understandable instructions and got myself an avatar. But posting pictures here (although I had mastered it on old TORN) makes me nervous.

It's a plot to cover the world in a second dark-chocolateness!

That looks yummy. *gets chocolate* Looks almost like a ring.
