Re: Deterioration

I do absolutely nothing for living. I do go to school but now I'm on a sweet vacation.

I'd like to become a movie director, though.

job

I am a Knife-sharpener and an Acupressurist/massage therapist and am currently studying to be a Naturopathic Doctor [read -a black market herbalist/dietary therapist because of the the chokehold the AMA and Chemical corp's have on medicine in the US].

Re: job

Yeah I figured you wouldn't have @ Heren. He's got thousands of fans out here actually. St. Stephens (it's one of our best colleges) is planning a Tolkien fest sometime next year. So hop in if you're this side of the world!

Re: job

One that I thought might be worth renewing with all the new people(obviously Mithadan didn't renew this one because he doesn't want all the new people to know he is a lawyer, <img src=wink.gif ALT=""> )

Well, I can't dispell that 'we're all computer nerds' myth because I'm an Engineer - Civil, like some of the previous posters. I pretty much hang out with my computer all day. But, outside of the office, I'm not terribly socially challenged. In fact, I'm a pretty cool gal, if I do say so myself! No worries about lawyers Mithadan - I'm married to a future one! An engineer and a lawyer! I bet no one wants to come to dinner at my house!

Re: What do you do for a living?

I test woodchips for export to paper manufacturers.

I used to be a full-time broadcast journalist/talkhost. I only do that as a weekend hobby now. I've run for office (white man in black district...lost surprisingly well), painted photographic backdrops, done labor in a paper mill, traffic-reporting, and voiceovers for radio, tv, and infomercials. I have been a political activist (looks like I will be again shortly).

After +21 years in broadcasting, my gadfly opinions convinced the local powerbrokers that if I would not drink hemlock, I would have to be pushed off the air. In their minds, I am far worse than a nerd! Radical. Reactionary. Not me! I just hate being lied to and stolen from!

But lemons-to-lemonade! here I am, rediscovering my love of Middle-earth and of writing and of performance art. I'm limbering up http://www.barrowdowns.com/FanFichobbits00.asphere</a>.

That's what happens when your proficiencies are all over the map. Guidance counselors cannot guide, and you cannot decide! I was urged by Dad to go into something with math and computers, but I didn't, so I am saved from that branch of nerddom. I was urged by Mom to go into Preaching, but I am neither holy enough (shame on me <img src=frown.gif ALT=""> ) or hypocritical enough (shame on them <img src=mad.gif ALT=">:"> ) for the task.

This testing job may only be good for a few years. If I do not write the great American Novel in that time, then I shall have to find other gainful employment.

Maybe I should study computers...

I'm a grad student, no help for the nerd image there. I study Human Development, though, so maybe that's a plus. I'm also a Trekker, so no non-Nerd points there either, sorry.

Re: What do you do for a living?

I am a college student, dance performance major, emphasis in ballet. Not really your typical choice of study, or your typical LotR fanatic. But i cant say much for that, since I know of no one else here who has even read the books, much less has a passion for them as I do. BTW, this is my first posting and i am excited to read what other Tolkien fans have to say. Oh yeah, since im new here, does anyone know how to include those sayings at the bottom of the posts? Or use the smiley faces? Im just curious.

Re: What do you do for a living?

Welcome, Mithrandir! You can add what's called a &quot;signature&quot; to your posts by going to your EZBoard preferences, typing one in, and enabling the option. Go to the http://www.barrowdowns.com/cgi-bin/ultimatebb.cgimain page of the forum</a>, click on &quot;My Control Center&quot; near the top of the page, then click the &quot;Edit Preferences&quot; button. Scroll down and you'll find a textbox under the section &quot;Custom Signature&quot;. Type one in, then check the &quot;Use Custom Signature&quot; checkbox.

When you're composing a post, look to the left of the textbox and you'll see a link that says &quot;Use Emoticons&quot;. Click that and it will give you the codes on how to make them in your posts.

Whew! I feel like the Downs Help-Desk! <img src=wink.gif ALT=""> Hope that helps get you going. Keep posting!

Re: What do you do for a living

Well, since someone else broke down and confessed first, I too am a lawyer. When I practiced I was a criminal lawyer, but a number of years ago I made the break to legal publishing and now am a Managing Editor at a &quot;major legal publishing company&quot; in Chicago -- known and loved by accountants and lawyers alike (the company, not me)

Re: OT: A Living

Though this discussion deteriorated somewhere in the middle, it got back on track pretty well.

I got through college working in a grocery store and later in a plywood mill. Then began teaching grade school, moved on to junior high school, then with a library degree to a community college and finally became a director of a community college library. Have now been retired for 19 years during which time I ghosted some fantasy novels. Now write the occasional short story and commit poetry, a heinous act, I know.

Re: OT: A Living

Sorry it's been a while. I moved, and switched from AOL to compuserve.
Right now I'm living in sunny California (good thing it's sunny now, cause the electricity could go off at any time. My bill has already gone off the charts!)...and I'm a delivery driver for DR. PEPPER. We also deliver snapple. This is just temporary until my wife finishes her masters in Business/Administration in October. Then, by the grace of God, I will be able to complete my degree in Theology (I'm half way finished). Before this I was a Bible teacher in Tokyo, Japan for 2 years, and held my own month-long Bible Prophecy seminars (with crowds ranging from 100-300)
all throughout the U.S.
The Bible is my first and true love, and then Tolkien and CS Lewis are my favorite non-Biblical authors. I try to make it a point not to &quot;preach&quot; my beliefs on this site. I think that would be both wrong (for this is not a religious site, but one dedicated to Tolkiens works. there are othere sites for that, and I share my thoughts in there.), and also disrespectful (For I'm sure there are many people on this site from other religious persuasions).

Re: OT: A Living

I've sometimes thought it sad, though, that I work harder telling friends about Tolkien and LotR than about God.

I must be getting the Great Commission confused: &quot;Go ye now, and preach unto all the nations the truth of Frodo of the Nine Fingers and the Ring of Doom...&quot;

Re: OT: A Living

Off topic here, but Lindil has started a Tolkien/Christian discussion forum. I was thinking of doing so myself, but since he's already got a start on one...

...also, I've thought of writing a Lord of the Rings Bible Study (perhaps with a better name!). Ever since I first brought up the topic in the chats, I've been seeing more and more Christian Tolkien afficianados!

Does a book of that sort sound interesting? Email me: robertwgardner@hotmail.com, or leave a note on Lindil's board http://beta.ezboard.com/bosanwekentabeta.ezboard.com/bosanwekenta</a>


P.S. Getting back on topic, I'd like to be a writer when I grow up!

Re: OT: A Living

OFF Topic: KayQy, It sounds like your'e a Christian as well. Awesome. I'm sure there are a few more. I'd love to chat in a Christian Tolkien lovers forum like Gilthalion suggested. Let's get it going. I made my comment about not preaching on this site because, I don't think it's very tactful, nor Christlike to come on to someone's site and start trying to prosyletize/evangelize. Some believers might think that is a very &quot;noble&quot; and &quot;zealous&quot; thing to do. I don't. I think it would turn people off (Esp. RKittle, who probably did not intend this site for that purpose). But now, if there are some other belivers on this site that Love the Lord, and want to chat about the Bible and Tolkien, and RKittle gives us the go ahead, that's a whole different ball game. Then people who know us, and are interested in in hearing and sharing what we have to chat about, can come on in and join us. We need to have a special place to do it though.
There is definitely a lot of Tolkien's theology that spills over into LotR, even though LotR is not intended to be an allegory. It was exciting for me to learn that Tolkien is the one who led CS Lewis to faith in Christ. Anyhow, If you are going to start that special chat room Gilthalion, please count me in.

OFF TOPIC -- Draggonklaw -- i didn't know about the Tolkien/C.S. Lewis connection, certainly didn't know that T. led L. to his faith in Christ? Where can i read about this, if you know?

I heard it on the Bible answer man broadcast (Hank Hannegraff of the Christian Research Institute) on a special they were having in which they compared Harry Potter with LotR, and The Chronicles of Narnia. You can look up equip.org (The Bible Answer Man's site) and ask for the exact reference. I haven't got around to doing it yet, but I've heard it from other credible sources too.

If you read the biographies of either, you'll find that it's true.

For a decade I was an International Studies Exchange Specialist at a prominent university in the US. I &quot;came down&quot; with bipolar affective disorder though, and do not work at all now, only wish I could.

I'm I HS student with no job (hey, I need time to sit in front of the computer and be nerdy) I'm thinking of either going into a Computer Science field or something to do with literature. Well, I'm sure not going to help with the proof against JRRT fans being nerds, 'cause I'm probably one of the biggest nerds of all time (and proud of it) Most people think that I'm a bit fanatical about things like Tolkien and Star Wars, but they're wrong, i'm very fanatical about that kind of thing. <img src=smile.gif ALT=""> (example: I'm learning quenya even through my friends' &quot;Why learn a 'fake' language?&quot <img src=smile.gif ALT="">

Just to add to all the info in here I did Commerce/Geography at university and have been an archaeological field assistant for national heritage issues (some MAJOR offroad driving - once 850 kilometres without once travelling along a road!) and now have just got a job doing GIS...

The road goes ever on...</p>

I'm in High School too, well, the Belgian equivalent to that<img src=smile.gif ALT=""> . I'm feeling like becoming a Civil Engineer/Computer Science, (tho I'm still not so sure about that), so that's pretty nerdy indeed. I *do* have a social life however<img src=smile.gif ALT="">
In contrary to several Tolkien fans here, who are Christians, I'm pretty atheist<img src=smile.gif ALT=""> Now don't try to convert me to the True Faith *cough cough* all of you<img src=smile.gif ALT=""> , Christianity is definitely a big no-no for me, and anyway, if it _is_ all True, which I highly doubt, I'm living a pretty Christian life except for the Bible/Churches Stuff anyway, so I'm sure this God fella will show his human side and let me into Heaven when I croak<img src=smile.gif ALT="">
