Oh my gosh... somebody remembered me!
I have to admit, it's been about three years since the last time I checked in.
What have I been up to since I joined this forum six years ago? Well, I've been busy finishing college (Bachelor in History), working for a mouse that wears little red pants, and just simply growing up and finding myself.
I still dearly love LOTR. Though at this moment my knowledge is quite rusty, so I plan to keep far away from the book forum at this time.

Though I'm really excited about the upcoming Hobbit movie!

What? A horde of old member reappearings? I'm especially delighted to see Envinyatar - he was the first ever to rep a RPG post by me, even though he wasn't even playing in the RPG...

Oh Dury, I dodn't do flattery merely state the truth... I still revisit Sirannon when I need cheering up.... (yes I do have a deeply hidden gooey side).

He will probably spit his coffee again if he ever reads this...

but despite the fact we had many differences of opinion culminating occasionally in strong exchanges of views, I find I miss the humour and intelligence of The Saucepan Man greatly and hope that life is treating him well (now that he has seemingly discovered that it is sustainable beyond the Downs).

Despite not having posted for five months and little before.... yes..... while there are a delightful bunch of newer arrivals I do miss Sauce, Heren, Fordim and the reduced presence of others such as Lal and Dave.... the giants of my early days here...

I am sure you will empathise, Mith, when I tell you that reading the Grimoire while playing DWW, and now looking at Nilp's sig, has made me pine for Ang again. He was going to co-mod your operatic WW at one point, wasn't he?

Well, she has, as Mithalwen had said, found a life 'sustainable beyond the Downs' . . .

I've spent most of my time back at BD reading old threads . . . and remembering the old days.

Look at us, talking like a bunch of old forum members.

You are old forum members.

I hope I can get him at least to act as consultant still. Yes there are many whose presence on the Downs I miss - including Ang whose posts were utterly delightful - but have the consolation of knowing that they are ok and hopefully enjoying life through LJ and Facebook.

There is an extra poignancy about the absence of people you only know through the Down's.

Ghostly, ethereal, and gorgeous though I may be... I'm here.

For about as long as it takes to play a werewolf game. I needed something to think critically about, you see. I get bored without things to occupy me. And you don't want to see me bored. Same way you don't want to see the Incredible Hulk... hungry.

Too many names and persons I learned to love and appreciate have gone indeed even if I'm a relative newbie still...

But there are also new people coming in - ones to become the household names and to become ones like those left. Like life it means coming and going; birth, blossoming and waning.

It leaves one with a quiet sadness of losing a friend but also with joy of meeting new people as a prospect of new friends.

I guess the internet-age is like this, just a bit faster our life-spans and real-life relations are (now I was betrayed to be the oldie I am!).

Miss you guys.

As the situation in Georgia deteriorates, I am sure I am not alone in holding Heren Istarion and his family in my thoughts and in being grateful that he is at least away from the immediate area of conflict.

Alas that my gratitude was misplaced due to faulty geography - looking at maps over the weekend shows he is more than close enough.

Just to let everyone who expressed concern about HerenIstarion - I received a PM from him early this morning:

Let's hope this dangerous situation in Georgia is soon resolved in a peaceful manner.

Thank you so much for keeping us informed. I can't say I'd blame you if you were too busy to keep web-pals up to date. But it is nice to have primary source reassurance.

For those of you who would like to read more about HerenIstarion's experiences in the current conflict in his home country, here is a diary that covers some of them: George's Georgian War Diary

I was very moved by what I read there.

Cheers, Esty! So has he sent his little one out of the country or has he kept his family close now things have calmed down?

The bit that had my hair standing on end was when he was saying about the axe and wondering whether to black out the windows of the cottage.... And then writing about how he'd had his old Astra repaired...so everyday (I know all about the trials of keeping old family cars running) but in the midst of fear.

I was going to say that I enjoyed reading HI's blog but I feel that 'enjoy' isn't really the right word. Impressed, certainly - he is a very brave and resourceful man.
I have encouraged other people I know to read it too.
I hope that the power-addicts will grow tired of playing their ugly political games, and that there will be a peaceful resolution for HI, his family and everyone else in that part of the world.
