Pipe All About You (Part II)

The original All About You thread got pretty big, so I decided to open another.

If you feel like sharing, please answer the questions if you have not done so previously on the first thread.

Also, don't comment on the entries of others. This topic is designed for everyone to share some personal information, but it's not the place to discuss them, even if they are Tolkien. We have the rest of the forum for Middle-earth talk.

Barrow-Downs members like to get to know one another, so I'll stick with the original questions. Here is the information everyone has been providing:

Name (that you go by):
Age:
Occupation:
Future Aspirations:
Goal in life:
Short term goals:
Passion:
Hobbies:
Famous for (okay this is where you get to brag about yourself):

Fave book:
Fave movie:
Fave sport:
Fave store:
Fave music:

What you can't stand:
What you plain dislike:
Who you admire:
What you most love to do:
Your self-confessed flaws:
What intrigues/fascinates you:
What scares you:
Quotation to live by:

Name (that you go by): Lush.
Age: Old enough to be tried as an adult.
Occupation: Dukie.
Future Aspirations: Sports-writer. Maybe novelist.
Goal in life: "Books, babies, and beef stew." Also, to not waste my life entirely.
Short term goals: To finish this without too many regrets.
Passion: I plead the 5th. Children might be reading.
Hobbies: Watching music videos and soccer games, aimlessly walking around Euroean cities, writng satiric short stories about my past conquests, blogging, singing drunkenly and dancing badly, flirting.
Famous for (okay this is where you get to brag about yourself): Not yet. Maybe never. I don't really want to be famous.

Fave book: Still The Master and Margarita by Mikhail Bulgakov. With a lot of others that come to mind. Like the LotR, as shocking as it may seem.
Fave movie: "American Beauty" still comes to mind. As do "Velvet Goldmine," "Clerks" and "The Princess Bride." And "Le Pacte des Loups." And a lot of others.
Fave sport: Futbol.
Fave store: Right now it's wherever I can find a good pair of Escada pants on sale. Maybe I should write that up as my "Passion." Yes, it's Escada, and nothing remotely inappropriate or immoral or...
Fave music: Drunk students singing outside my window. Also jazz, techno, and the Beatles (I don't care if certain minds link the Beatles with "the establishment") and whatever other random stuff that appeals to me. Like Manu Chao and In-Grid.

What you can't stand: My reflection in the mirror on Monday mornings.
What you plain dislike: Repetitive questions.
Who you admire: Anyone who reads this and doesn't think that I suck.
What you most love to do: Read and write. And...*ahem*
Your self-confessed flaws: I like to be the center of attention. Really. It's sickening. But so much fun.
What intrigues/fascinates you: I used to think it was men, but now it's mostly art. Though some men are like art. Then again, a painting or a book is never going to leave you because it doesn't want "emotional involvement." Then AGAIN, a painting can't...bring you breakfast in bed afterwards
What scares you: I scare myself.
Quotation to live by:

"A human being is an arrow loosed into eternity."

also,

"More beer!"

Additional comments: I must really like to talk about myself, since I filled this out twice. Anyway, this is the older, wiser, infinently more boring version.

Here is the updated version...

Name (that you go by):Ashley (that is it, that is all)

Age:17

Occupation: Student in high school, Senior, member of the William Winlock Miller High School graduating class of 2004 (Yeah!)

Future Aspirations: Go to college at the University of Washington, major in business and Interior Design or become a lawyer, and run a marathon. I would also love to go into Politics because I think they really need me. I would be very valuble to our country and government.

Goal in life: Be comfortable, wealthy, own a great shoe and clothing collection, own a Mercedes Benz 500 E-class sedan, and a condo in Vancouver BC. Meet every single actor from the film fellowship [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]. 2 down, 8 to go (or you could say that I have met 4, but the third and fourth ones I was really only in the presence of. I heard them speak)

Short term goals: Get through high school successfully, get up to varsity level in cross country or track. Sew a version of the white Eowyn dress.

Passion: clothing, LOTR, design, anything artistic, learning, travel, shopping, internet

Hobbies: Going on the Internet, shopping, cooking (desserts only though, my mother asks me "why can't you make dinner"), collecting, listening to music, going to cons [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

Famous for (okay this is where you get to brag about yourself): Nothing right now, just being a great person, involved in some clubs, the biggest LOTR fan in my school (truely, I wear my elven brooch at school so they know I am a fan)

Fave book: I have too many to choose, my favorite of LOTR is The Two Towers, and a lot of historical fiction novels. The Lovely Bones by Alice Seabold (a kind of sad book but it is also very hopeful). The Redwall books (they were the first fantasy novels I was interested in)

Fave movie: Such a hard question (thinking ...) Duh! Fellowship of the Ring!, and Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Best in Show, Austin Powers, Wayne's World, Robin Hood: Men in tights, and historical movies with great costumes (I especially love for that Sleepy Hollow, Interview with the Vampire, and The Patriot)

Fave sport: running, walking, watching baseball and football (Go Mariners!)

Fave store: Nordstroms, J Crew, Gucci [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img] (I only shopped there once), Louis Vutton (I only shopped there twice), Barnes and Noble, also any place that sells furnature and home stuff, Restoration Hardware, William Sonoma, Archabald Sisters (a really great store in my home town), oh and any place that sells LOTR related stuff. Additionally I am addicted to handbags.

Fave music: I enjoy calming music and stuff with a lot of emotion. My choices are very diverse. I love everything from country to alternative. Right now I am really enjoying Coldplay.

What you can't stand: School European group trips, cliques, mean people, and people who try to fit in even though they really don't.

What you plain dislike: School European group trips, coffee, myself in some ways

Who you admire: My parents, the founding fathers of the U.S., my teachers (because they do so much to help students succeed)

What you most love to do: travel (but not on School European group trips) I love especially to travel across the United States on Car trips, those are the best.
Riding Roller Coasters! [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] (Next year you will be able to find me working at Cedar Point, the greatest amusement park in the world!)

Your self-confessed flaws: I can be annoying, obsessive, I want everything to be perfect, I am kind of a loner, I don't seem to get along with anyone at my school

What intrigues/fascinates you: The universe, the meaning of life? History, I love history, government, Art (it is amazing what people can create with their own hands)

What scares you: Blood (that is why I cannot become a doctor) nuclear waste (that stuff scares the heck out of me because there is no way to get rid of it without it effecting something), nuclear war, haunted houses, and things that jump in the night.
Quotation to live by: Just Do it!

Additional comments: I tend to not like being with people my own age (I like people who talk about intelligent things), I am very mature for my age (well not too mature, but I just never seem to get along very well with people my own age. I always start talking to their parents). Oh and sometimes I sound very smart but I really don't do as well in school as I would like to.

Fave movie: FOTR, TTT, Star Wars, Black Hawk Down, We Were Soldiers, Minority Report, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, X-men 1 and 2, Spiderman, Daredevil was pretty good, Mystery Men, Galaxy Quest, Judge Dredd, Harry Potter ones, a lot of John Wayne movies, most Cary Grant movies, the only musical I like is Singing in the Rain, It's A Wonderful Life, The Mummy, Gladiator, Patlabor 1 and 2, Jurrasic Park, The Patriot was pretty good, uh...I guess I really liked Dude Where's My Car, the 1st and 3rd Indiana Jones Movies, Tomb Raider, oh, and of course, Green Slime, which I'm betting close to (if not) no one has seen it. And there are probably some more I'm forgetting...

Fave sport: Softball

Fave store: my local comic shop

Fave music: rock/sorta 'punk'/classical/little bit o' country or pop

What you plain dislike: Mystery novels, classic literature, Shakespeare, math, The Matrix Reloaded, guidance couselors, green beans. You want to know more, PM me or something.

Who you admire: I'm at a loss, so I'll stick with my parents, Tolkien, and Robert Jordan. Easy way out...

What you most love to do: Read, write, and ride roller coasters!

Your self-confessed flaws: Pessimistic, perfectionist (can be flaw or 'edge'), mildly shy (off the computer, I guess), bad at making decisions (can't remember the word for it at the moment), bad temper...

What intrigues/fascinates you: Hmmmmmmm...literary symbolism and such is pretty cool...

What scares you: Tornadoes (though I've never seen one in real life), zombies, Samara, the devil, and, of course, life's real scare: psychoes!!!

Quotation to live by: I'll quote good ol' Gandalf. "All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us."

Additional comments: NA

EDIT: Yeah, I know, I added things and changed around a few things so I sounded cooler and smarter. Big deal. They are all still true though, of course.

Silmaril

Name (that you go by): Robert W. Gardner

Age: 1963 (Do the math...)

Occupation: Pastor

Future Aspirations: Perhaps the most pertinent to this site is my aspiration to write a novel based upon the end of the Millennial Kingdom. I would like one day to build and occupy a double-scale hobbit hole, having determined that earth-sheltered construction is the best stewardship of the resources the Maker entrusted us with.

Goal in life: To have people say, "He truly followed Jesus."

Short term goals: To be used to reestablish our church with a true New Testament structure.

Passion: The Mrs.

Hobbies: Writing. Tinkering.

Famous for (okay this is where you get to brag about yourself):
I'm locally known as a former radio talkshow host and as a citizen activist who helped stop both casino gambling and a lottery from corrupting our regional culture and economy. I resigned from the Christian Coalition upon finding it was not much of either at the top.


Fave book: THE LORD OF THE RINGS

Fave movie: THE LORD OF THE RINGS (tentatively)

Fave sport: Fencing. I used to be fairly good at swordplay, on stage and off, many years ago.

Fave store: I spend more time at WAL*MART than any other store. (I don't like shopping, though I do enjoy spending money!)

Fave music: Classical.

What you can't stand: Arrogant ignorance.

What you plain dislike: Pride.

Who you admire: Folk who are more Christ-like than myself.

What you most love to do: Write, tinker, act, and uh, ask the Mrs!

Your self-confessed flaws: Arrogance, ignorance, pride.

What intrigues/fascinates you: Humanity & Creation.

What scares you: The thought that I might be seduced into a life of meaningless conformity either to the culture of the world or to the culture of the traditional church. Either way is easier than following Jesus.

Quotation to live by: "To live is Christ, to die is gain."

Additional comments: I would admonish other Christian believers on this Forum and in the Barrow-Downs chatroom to conduct yourselves as such. "Not by might, and not by power, but by my Spirit," says the Lord! It is alright to discuss the faith of J.R.R. Tolkien and yourselves, but do it within threads that hash such things out. OF COURSE Tolkien was a Christian and saw LOTR as an essentially Christian work! But there are none so blind as those who will not see, despite the Professor's own words in his Letters and especially in the concluding notes of his essay on Fairy Stories. Advertise your faith, if you like, in your signatures. Private Message or email those who have an interest. Demonstrating love in a moment will do more than arguing theology for a lifetime.

Oh! And you will never persuade a troll! (I've tried.)
