Post#1 » Thu Jan 27, 2005 7:40 pm

Hi there everyone,

I joined the site a few weeks ago but have recently started back at Uni in 'sunny' UK to complete my undergraduate degree so have been rather busy of late. I love all things middle-earth and regard Tolkien as a genius beyond any doubt. I have read the hobbit twice, the Lord of the Rings several times, having read the Return of the King about 4 seperate times also. The Silmarillion I only bought last January when I was depressed. In the matter of a week I had finished it and with its completion my depression had almost gone. So i went and bought Unfinished Tales to devour and I haven't looked back since.
In the space of the last twelve months I've read the Silmarillion three times and just started again for the beginning of the new year, really start me off in the right frame of mind. Now I find I read it in a matter of days as I just cant put it down but it is worth the read for any of you who haven't yet.
I also like to write and have been working on my own story for the last three years after a writer's block that seemed to be remedies by my return to education. I do not know how 'good' it is, if at all it is more for myself at present but I am pleased with how much my world has grown and the people that have emerged, especially compared with how it originally started. I laugh at those early days but with an insightful mind as without certain folly I would not have the world I do now.
Anyway I have rambled on far too long as I am wont to do so bye for now, any questions, thoughts or comments...please just ask....
oooh I am also a fan of Led Zeppelin and the Levellers.
Take care all and

Namárie

'Sunny UK'??????? Excuse me but which UK are you in? :) Although to be fair the weather isn't too bad here. Anyway, welcome! Another UKer! We'll soon have enough UKers for a UK meet. Which Uni btw? Not that I know any but it would pinpoint your location on this 'Scepter'd isle'.

Next you need to read the entire HOME, no skipping any bits, no coffee breaks. (Yeah, I'm puling your leg). However, The Letters of JRRT are absolutely invaluable for knowing Tolkien's thoughts.

Anyway, welcome, Isorfir and enjoy our community.

Wow! Consider yourself in luck Isorfir, for you have just been greeted by the two resident Goddesses of PT. But as a word of warning. Watch your back!

Anyways, welcome aboard, buckle your seatbelts and get ready for the ride aboard Planet-Tolkien. Peace and Enjoy!

Amarie - misty or 'misty'? btw never let truth get in the way of a joke.

I didn't. UK being sunny was Isorfirs joke first. Subtile but nice. I thought it would be fun to correct you since you had fun 'twisting' her(?) words and pretending she had misunderstood. ;) And it was fun!

Hmmm... we are taking over yet another newbie thread aren't we? We are always like this, joking and being silly. But when we mean business, then you will know. We are complex, like goddesses are. ;) Oh and we are Council Members too.

Ok, back into welcome new members mode:

But first check the FAQ and Help (under Your Account to the right here <----------- ) There is a lot of useful info in there and we work hard to keep them updated. That way you might get your answer right away and you won't have to wait for us to reply.
