Silmaril I met a fellow BDer!!

I’m starting this thread to give everyone who has met someone from the Barrow-Downs a place to tell us all about it. You think that’s nice of me, to be so interested in your experiences? Naw, I just want to brag to you all about mine!!

I met Lush yesterday!! She’s in Germany at the time, so I went to Cologne (Köln) to get together with her. It was raining, so we went somewhere to sit and have something to drink (no, not what you think – we had hot tea!) while we talked. We spent over three hours, getting to know each other’s real life person, talking about the site, the book, the movie, soccer, the difference between life in the US and Europe… And of course we enjoyed a bit of good-natured gossip about the people we know on the Downs!! It was my privilege to get to know a young woman who is interesting, intelligent and serious as well as being very humorous – not that I was surprised! We had not one dull moment and I would be very happy to see her again. At any rate, it will be even more fun to read her posts now that I’ve actually seen and heard the person behind them.

(By the way, for all you hobbits - the restaurant we sat and had lunch in had two pages of its menu devoted to mushroom dishes - and what we tried tasted very good!)

Now it’s your turn…

Question

Estelyn: I envy whoever had the remarkable chance to meet a fellow BDer! It would certainly be fascinating to see one whom you've communicated to only through the Net. It's just one special thing about the barrow-Downs; where Tolkien gathers us all! [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

Those Civil War re-enactments sound fun, are they? What's the best, the actual battle, the getting you outfit together before the battle, or camping out that nite with the other mountain men, ladies and kids? Or is it not like that at all?? [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

Liriodendron -It's my first one, so I have no idea what it will be like. I've heard that the people who participate in these things are extremely dedicated and authentic. Everything just like the 1860s - except for the smell, I hope!

Hmmmmm... Helm's Deep re-enactments, anyone?

BTW - Isn't Burrahobbit's B-D party this weekend?

When I was in London on class trip some months ago, I was hoping to meet Miriel, but we had no time for running away, meeting people from the net (can you understand how that felt?) so I didn't meet her.

Maybe I could convince dad about taking a vacation trip to Finland.. that doesn't cost so much.. All I had to was order a BD-tshirt (or something else lotr-related) make dad get us to finland and (wherever sind is living) mail sindacuion and tell him we're here, ask him about some good café or another and get there.. *sighs deeply*
ok, I'm fantasying, so what?!?

I met Samwise this week. My family was traveling through Petaluma on our way to Disneyland so we arranged to meet.

She met me with roses from the garden at her church, which she tends.

She has a pleasant voice and a easy manner. My husband and kids were there too, until we finished dinner, then he took them to the hotel to swim. Samwise is very good with children. My kids took to her right away.

We talked about what had been going on here at the Downs since I'd left Washington. And we found we have many other similar interests.

It was too dark to see the garden she tends at her church or at her home so we sat in her driveway for another 20 minuted and talked some more.

AND NEITHER ONE OF REMEMBERED OUR CAMERA! We'll just have to do it again, Samwise!

It's kinda hard for me to meet people because I live in a boring place where no one lives and no one vists.
Stupid City.I hate it.I wish I lived in London or birmingham or something.

I have Rosseiliantiel's problem that I can't tell everyone were I live cause one of you is supposed to be ready to come kidnap me. But in four years when I'm 18 I'll tell you all where I live and then I can meet someone.

Oh I know! I'm going to Orlando Flordia in August! Anyone want to "accedently" meet me there?

I want to meet Lush. I'm going to try to get into a camp at Duke next year and try to meet her there. Hehehe, you're so lucky, Estelyn! I don't know any other B-Ders except my sister, but she doesn't count.

Well, I'm back in the States, and can finally get on-line without my German lover looking over my shoulder every two minutes, and asking me questions like, "why aren't you on an Oliver Kahn site downloading nude pictures of him?"
I'm glad Esty started this thread, and I can safely testify that we had a great time. And as I recall, we didn't gossip about Lothiriel. And it is true, I didn't drink a drop of anything remotely alcoholic while lunching with Esty. The same can't be said for what I did that night, or the following night, or the night after that...You get the idea. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]
dragongirlG, I'm not that exciting of a person, I only become interesting when handsome men walk into the room, but I'm glad you want to meet me.
Here's a big thanks to Esty for coming all that way to see me, and a big thanks to the Barrow-Downs for bringing us together in such a lively community. Finally, long live the Bundesrepublik Deutschland for its excellent beer, architecture, men, and other attractions.

Yay, Lush! You're back!

Even though you say you're not that interesting of a person, I still want to meet you. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] Besides, who says handsome men don't attend Duke University? Hmm? I know handsome men who go to MIT...

I agree with Alkanoonion. The site has not been the same since you left. Oh yeah, a lot of things have happened here too. But I'm sure you'll find that out on your own.

Welcome back!
