I thought she was saying it was hard to choose between the Heirs of Durin!

There IS... a Paralell Universe.. [In reply to] Can't Post

Pheonmonemum (sp.) on Purpose?

Back in Brits/Beatles Invasion
in the late 60's...(40+ years ago..

John Lennon got in aLOT of Trouble
when he was quoted as
"We are more POP-ular than Jesus"?

LP Records, Posters, etc.
were Burned or Banned on Radio Stations...

"Scandalous Sacro-REligious behavior"
was Preached at many Pulpits?

BUT, us Kids were growin' their HAIR LONG?
The Generation GAP Grew
bigger everyday.

But Bomby & Goldberry developed
a "Hobbit LifeStyle"?
Gardening, livin' off the Land...

Remember, ThisBomby was there

Not guilty [In reply to] Can't Post

Not our fault, Bomby......our *feminine energies* were nicely banked as we contentedly
shopped, vacationed, worked, socialized, cleaned - women around the world innocently going
about our normal routines......we had gone on, dwarfless and bereft, as women so often do.....
we had it back together.....with only an occasional whimper at the glimpse of a (majestic)
dwarf boot coming firmly down on stone, a hint of (majestic) beauty and power mourned......Frown

And then, like a deranged Godfather Drosselmeyer, from out of the darkness came
Sir PeterEvil, bearing many gifts which re-fanned the banked coals to a conflagration.

A *Majestic King* with burning topaz-blue eyes, streaming espresso locks, the voice
and bearing of a Celtic god. His heirs, one golden, one dark, with lightning reflexes,
wondrous smiles, eyes sparkling with life, truly Princes of Erebor. Three are restored to us
(along with the other 10 + a cute Hobbit + a hawt Elven King) - the Heirs of Durin
DRESSED IN LEATHER and CHAIN (and *cough* occasionally wet tunics. And bathrobes.)

Our feminine energy (along with, possibly, some males) must express its joy at such
magnificent gifts, lest it utterly consume us (and anyone within a radius of 100 miles.
Or kilometers, depending on where you live.)

Besides, Beatles fans didn't own fun copies of dwarf weaponsWink

Hmmm. RA did mention a drink contest in that latest interview. [In reply to] Can't Post

I have a good dessert idea we could feature - The King Under the Mountain. I'm picturing espresso with Kahlua, Goldschlager Cinnamon (just a touch) with Haagen Dazs Chocolate Chip ice cream on top.

The plus is that the hot tubs will be sort of shallow, by need, so you can enjoy it without tipping it. Well, the first one anyway. Wink

How about [In reply to] Can't Post

The Thorin Toddy? A mixture of whisky, boiling water and sugar or honey, possibly with additional ingredients such as cloves, a lemon slice or cinnamon.

Something nice and warm before bed sounds good. Wink

..before bed, and... (-erasing large bit of post-)
OK its probably best if I just leave the 'bed' part of this alone. Laugh


That does sound very good Kim! Maybe hot apple cider in there too...

I remember... [In reply to] Can't Post

There is something called a Brave Bull - Basically tequila and Kahlua on the rocks. What if you used Patron Gold (I know, waste of a good tequila but fitting).

That gives you rocks, gold, bravery and it's even served in a short stout old-fashioned glass.

Brave Bull - may need one of those AFTER the midnight show. Or maybe before....sounds as though
it can get you where you want to go in a hurryEvil

And all things considered, drinks *on the rocks* at times like these have inherent advantages.

Like I was thinking with using Goldschlager Schnapps to get 'gold' in somehow. I may need to do a Thorin's Libations section in the Tolkienia Times. Wink
