Next thing you know, Estelyn will have a dwarf avatar.

There is precedent for that sort thing.

This one doesn't fit my usual mood at all anymore, so I lay to rest

It was a paragraph of a story I wrote about someone with a weird kind of bipolar disorder. The evilness inside his head ended up being very dark and poetic.

Question Taps playing.

  1. The Ents were seen in Dunland, looking for: a. Saruman and his secret stash of Longbottom Leaf; b. Entwives; c. Taters; d. Legolas and Gimli. They haven't paid the entrance fee.

  2. Much Elven-blood can be found in: a. Helm's Deep (?); b. The Prince of Dol Amroth; c. The Lórien Blood Bank; d. Alqualondë (ooh, harsh!).

  3. At the end of the Third Age the Dúnedain population of Arnor: a. were all dead; b. were rebuilding...what was the name again? It's been so long; c. wait. Didn't Hal take all of them?; d. can breathe easier, with Aragorn gone and all.

  4. The Company abandoned the passage of Caradhras because: a. Frodo lost the Ring in Hollin; b. winter there is bad for Hobbits; c. Gimli stepped on a hole and fell to Moria; d. Leggy forgot his shoes.

  5. The curse on Húrin's Children was caused by: a. a loophole in the free will clause; b. Túrin, the angry man with a talking sword; c. Morgoth (yeah right!); d. stupid staring contests.

(NOTE: Questions 3 and 4 are the complete version. I had to chop a word or seven to make them fit in.)

My personal favourite was question 5 (on account of "stupid staring contests"), although it looks like a lot more liked question 2: Vy ze vay, thanks, Ms. Esty, Ms. Helen, Ms. Evisse, Ms. Nuranar, Ms. Ainaserkewen and NK for the appreciation!

My current sig (the line above I intend to . . . ) is a quote from Tom Clancy's Op-Center: Mirror Image, although it sounds eerily like something from Tolkien.

Oh, I almost forgot: whoever can give me the correct answer to all questions above gets a true-to-life stuffed Balrog. With wings and not!

Well Nilpaurion, it's a little known secret among teachers that the answer to every multiple choice question is b.

And to what scale is this stuffed Balrog? Would it fit in a Christmas stocking?

Thumbs up GASP! (Go away, shocking person!)



So it is! All b.

Re stuffed Balrog: It really is a Balrog, albeit one stuffed with goose feathers. So sorry, Eomer, it wouldn't fit in any mortal stocking--although Morgoth's would do.

There are two versions of this novelty item: the winged one (the one that fell in Khazad-dûm), and the un-winged one (the one that fell in Cirith Thoronath). Which one shall it be?

Hmm, so some Balrogs had wings eh? Sounds like a good debate...

I'll have whichever. It's not wings that I love about Balrogs, it's their cute faces.

A lyric from a song called Obstacle 2 by my favourite band Interpol. It is not too often you come across a popular band this epic. My only apology is that this particular lyric can in no way be linked to Middle-earth!

"One thing I do know. I was blind, but now I'm just myopic!"

This is John 9:25 changed to suit me. The real verse says "I was blind, but now I see." When I read it, I recognized its truth in my life...though I can't see perfectly. So I changed "I see" to "I'm just myopic" because I am myopic!

It was hard for me to let this one go but, i have put my Half Jack by the Dresden Dolls to rest...


two halves are equal
a cross between two evils
it's not an enviable lot
but if you listen
you'll learn to hear the difference
between the halfs and the half nots


Rest in Peace Amanda!

I really liked this one, and it fit the holiday mood very well.
In case you don't already know , the original song (by Wizzard) did not go like this, it was "I wish it could be Christmas every day, when the bells start ringing and the band begins to play".

It has served me well for many months, but it was time for a change.

The new siggy is offered with apologies to Squatter, from whom I gained my inspiration. In my defense, I translated this particular passage into Old English a number of years ago and have been waiting for an opportunity to use it.

I will give a hint, however: think killer robots. . .

Rip:

"Who tied my hands to the wheel? The zodiac turns over me
Somewhere there my fate revealed - I hear but how will I see"

It's from a Nightwish song called "The Siren". Wonderful song, great lyrics.

Alas, my old signature must lay to rest; I would keep it, but there's the 3-line rule to consider... Analogies are wonderful :

As to my new one, it's quite a lovely psalm-- and a long one, at that! My signature is but a snippet.

I liked this one because of the attitude toward reputation which is a lot like it is here on the Downs, and also because of the day of death thing which goes right along with the morbid theme. But I got tired of it. I'm still leaving the other one up because it's not ready to come down yet.

1420! And so I say farewell.

1. Aragorn: What do you expect? You're a stupid and pointless character.

2. Théoden: So eat, drink and be Pippin! Forget the fact that tomorrow we may be needed to ride our horses at breakneck speeds!

3. Sauron: Obi-Wan never told you what happened to your father.

4. Éomer: Is it just me, or does he keep talking, like we're listening or something?

5. Beacon man #1: How did we get stuck with this job anyway?

6. Merry: Raised to the ground? Isn't that an oxymoron?

7. Aragorn: But it’s near the water. I’m afraid of the water.

8. Boromir: I'm just here for the refreshments.

9. Faramir: In place of a dark lord, you will have a QUEEN! Not dark, but beautiful and terrible as the...

10. Faramir: Uh . . . Orcs killed him?

These are quotes from the New Movie Script project.

Too much links. The golden letters blind me.
