I don't have Legate on Skype, so just add me to your conversation. I'll try and record some of it if you like. Not sure if it will work, though. I may have to experiment.

Is anybody friends with The Might? I'm not. I don't know if you and I are contacts. As I said, I'm picking Lauri up from the airport in about two hours, I could do it before then, but then I'd have to leave and come back.

EDIT: Every time I post, Hookbill has posted while I was posting.

Alas! I don't think I can participate today. Very sorry, but... tired, getting up early tomorrow, everything... not able to focus very well at the moment. Hope to be able to participate later, though... although the holidays might shuffle things a bit now... but anyway, at most in September

That's too bad.

So, is something happening right now? I'm still a bit confused.

Well, the stars don't seem to smile on us at the moment. You could always try to start something later in the evening with Lauri, Hookbill and whoever is around and feels like dropping in... Otherwise, let's just try again in another month.

Not really, apart from Hookbill and me having a little text chat.

Well, talking with Hookbill is always fun; I'd be happy to do it even if there weren't any other Downers around. But I would love to actually do some reading this time; last time I was too late. I suppose that it is up to Hookbill now?

Sorry guys, but I'm not going to be able to do it - Internet problems are slowing Skype down to unreasonable levels. It won't let me do a call because of 'connection problems' and the text conversations are taking an age to go from keyboard to screen.

Do we have to wait a whole month?

No, of course not, the whole monthly thing only emerged because doing it too often would spoil the fun of it being something special.

Would have been great to have you with us, especially since you started all this in the first place... but I'm going to bed now (after a lovely little chat with TGEW), and I don't know whether something's going to happen later tonight or not; doesn't look like it at the moment.

Not that I noticed. But if you two're still around, we could start planning another retry?

Unfortunately, it's rather late already over here, and your late afternoon is I think well past midnight for me... Also, recruiting enough people at short notice didn't work too well last time. What about next weekend?

What about on the 10th (Saturday)? Apparently the final will be on the 11th.

Yeah, but the game about the third rank (='bronze medal', between the losers of the semi-final) will be on Saturday, and I reckon some people will want to watch that (I, for one, may, depending on how our boys fare against Spain on Wednesday).
OK, never mind the Ballack [/doubly obscure inside joke] - Sunday wouldn't have been a good day anyway, considering some of us on this side of the big pond have to get up early on Monday, but what about Saturday the 10th after the game (i.e. probably something like 2200+ GMT)?

What's a "topic"?


But seriously, have we ever had a topic in the first place?

May I propose we all start to wander online sometime around 20.00/8.00 GMT (Hookbill & Enw time)? That's 11.00 Laurinqu time, 12.00 TGEW time, and 21.00 Pitchwife time. Is this all right with you? And if we want to read aloud, well, it's all open to suggestion.

Sounds great! I like how we all have our own different time zones!

Wait, would that be 10 in the morning my time, or noon? I'm confused. As it is, I don't know if I'll be awake at ten in the morning - I haven't really slept for two weeks...I'll try to wake up in time, though.

As long as you're still in Alaska with me it will be at 11.00 AM. TGEW is in Washington now so she is an hour ahead at 12.00. But you can come in whenever you like, I'm going to have to hurry if I want to be on too. I just thought it would be easier for our European friends if we didn't do it at midnight their time.

Any ideas for reading?

I have some. Don't know if they'll be good for our group, but it's worth suggesting.
  • The Council of Elrond (What? It would keep us entertained for hours.)
  • Strider ('Twould be fun!)
  • A Short Cut to Mushrooms (Farmer Maggot is amusing.)
  • The Passing of the Grey Company (Looks like a bit of dialogue.)
  • The Battle of Pelennor Fields (There's some great dialogue here when you get to Theoden dying and Eowyn and Merry being generally awesome. )
  • The Tale of Aragorn and Arwen (Did we already read this one? Ah who cares.)

Ah, excellent! I might be able to wake up by then.

As for reading, we'd better see how many people we have first. (If we already know this, I'm just being sleepy. )

Of course. I think, off of memory, we have six or seven Downers at this point.
