Now it is time that my quote must take the voyage beyond the forum. Rest in peace

Later! Yes, when you also have the Keys of Barad-dr itself, I suppose; and the crowns of seven kings, and the rods of the Five Wizards, and have purchased yourself a pair of boots many sizes than those that you wear now.

I lay my siggy here to rest:

I don't remember when I last changed it, but I like my new one too....besides...we haunt a graveyard -- 'tis healthy to have frequent dyings....

On a side note, I love your siggy Perky. Classic

Farewell to Brave Britomart

I here immortalize - or preserve until this forum falls to dust - the memory of Britomart, Spenser's original shieldmaiden, and the knight of the Red Cross.

Quote:
. . . about her swayd / Her wrathfull steele, that none mote it abyide; / And eke the Redcrosse knight gave her good ayd, / Ay ioyning foot to foot, and syde to syde; / That in short space their foes they have quite terrifyde. ~The Faerie Queene
Now for something more in line with my avatar - Jane Austen!

Well, I thought it would be a good idea to change my quote, as it was too political according to Downs policies.
The new one is from Confucius, and I like it very much.

I remembered an old sig I used to have that I think deserves a place in here. It's a line I had for some time probably about a year ago and I think it deserves a proper burial.

The buzz of love is busy buggin' you...

It's from a song called Buggin' by The Flaming Lips, a truly wonderful band, and it is on their album The Soft Bulletin. I enjoy the quote because I think it is very happy, positive and carefree.

And it is indeed a good film - Gil-Galad, the quote, if I'm not mistaken, is from 'Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure' (is that the exact title? I'm never quite sure...), which remains an incredibly classy film, and was, like, a cult in the early 1990s. You know 'Dude Where's My Car?' ? Yeah, that's shameless plagiarism from Bill and Ted, and it's proud to be so. You know the turtles from 'Finding Nemo'? Once again, inspired by Bill and Ted. Legend, and glad to see it has a place on the Downs, Perky! I believe another fan is Imladris - a phrase including 'most excellent' was in her sig for a while, I believe...

And now watch me be completely wrong and it be a completely different film...

One of the sigs I recently noticed was The Only Real Estel's - a few rather cutting remarks about M. Night Shyamalan's newest thriller, 'The Village'!

Oh yes, I am definitely a fan. I used to have, "Be Excellent to each other and party on Dudes" in my sig for months...it broke the record of the longest sig (at least for me)

That info about Bill and Ted -- I never knew that! Finding Nemo -- now that I should have recognized...

Rest in piece my beloved siggy, whom most of you found amusing, and I'm really glad of that, but alas, all things must pass, and I was getting bored of it. It's lived its time:

The time has come, the Downers said, to talk of many things,
Of Hobbits, Elves and Oliphaunts, of Palantirs and Rings,
Whether the orcs are truly evil and if Balrogs have wings.

It's time for me to put down my long-serving faithful sig-

And from the blade rang a cold voice in answer: 'Yea, I will drink thy blood gladly, that I may forget the blood of Beleg my master, and the blood of Brandir slain unjustly. I will slay thee swiftly.'

I just noticed that I omitted the word "so" from the quote all this time. I know what you're saying- 'So?'.

"Strange things are afoot at the Circle K"

I feel I'm mentally unstable of late, as compared to what a solid rock I once was. Maybe I'm overworked. Not being rich and lazy gnaws at my mind too. Por favor, seňor, donate me a million, would you? (Euros or US Dollars would be accepted). Nevertheless, all this whimpering concerns overly quick change of current signature:

Ha ha, HI! That's three in a week is it? Signatures, that is. Maybe it's the autumn restlessness that's getting to you like it got to Bilbo and Frodo, eh? But this still doesn't excuse the shameless advertising of your thread... hahaha

Ok, the same instability makes me change my sig too. This one is just too damn depressing, isn't it? So rest in peace (how fitting), vision of Carl Sandburg:

Quote:
Death is a nurse mother with big arms: 'Twon't hurt
you at all; it's your time now; just need a

These are the statistics of the thread in question. 51 members overall. Reciprocating, too. I certainly would be glad to try my teeth on some more

Not to stray, though:

Your preceding - the one you parted company with in the post immediately above, - was very poetic, but depressive a bit Legends of the fall, you're right in that too. Stability? - nah, I'm off home to my Complete Published Works by Poe. Reread the Raven, scare myself with shades and candlelight and whimper silently in the gloom afterwards...

Narya Hi,

Your statistics are fun! Have you tried counting how many sigs per person are posted here?

My random non-LotR quote thing has 29 signatures alone! Add to that the other offsprings of my fickleness, and that should propel me to the top! THE TOP!!!

My adoration for your penchant for numbers is like chastity for the Romans - adored, but rarely emulated. Alas, for having flunked Calculus, I lost all love for Math! Failing does that to me.

Anywhen I have new old sigs to post. Dosvidania, my siggies!

Quote:
Here Digitopolis we have our meals when we're full and eat until we're hungry. That way, when you don't have anything at all, you have more than enough.
I haven't read The Phantom Tollbooth (yet), but a book in Math I possess happens to have a part of it, Milo in Digitopolis.

Quote:
Where do they get the courage . . . to fight against Death himself, knowing that they must ultimately lose. Such [is] the nature of the medical profession.
This is from Clear and Present Danger by Tom Clancy. I have discovered some more sig-material quotes from him (not involving the Cold War, the CIA, or nuclear weapons, mind you!) Maybe I'll use it sometime after I run out of multiple-choice questions, but I get too ahead of myself.

And now, I have created (three, so far) multiple-choice questions that shall become my signature until my home page is finished, and I return to imitating HI's sig (albeit with my name).

I'll post them here once I complete all three. Until then, fare thee well, until they bring back down the fare rates! Thank you, and good day!

~Elenrod Felagund, unassuming(?) heir of Finrod
