What ho!

Post#1 » Sat Feb 05, 2005 5:20 pm

Hello everyone,

I have to admit, my family's a little embarassed by my love of all things Tolkien. Do I care? Not one whit, because the world of Middle Earth has always felt suprisingly familiar and warmly comfortable. I felt drawn to join PT because I was impressed by the level of serious scholarship I found on these boards. I can tell that I'm going to learn a lot, and I can't wait to do so with others who love the good professor's work.

While I know that this is a UK site, I am actually in the United States. Next year I'll be at University (which university it will be is still up in the air). Until then I am planning on doing the things that I love, like eating plenty of Tex Mex, drawing and gardening, swimming in the river, and reading loads of good books. It's a pretty hobbit-esque existence (except that swimming bit) and it suits me just fine. Right now I'm plowing through the histories, and so far I'm really enjoying them.

I'm American to! I'm just a disgrace (or a credit, I'll let you decide!) to the entire nation. Being from the Glorious Green State of Georgia, conviently and wonderfully located in central Dixie, I feel obliged to question which state your, undoubtedly much more than equally glorious to my pathetic self, person hails from. My family is embarassed by my love of Middle-Earth too! And half my friends, the other half are at least as obsessed as me! I like Middle-Earth beacuase impossible things are common, not in the Oriental film way mind you. An I just like medieval and renaissance anything, save tights,uggggggggggggh! That and the Hobbit diet. I eat four meals a day. Mostly carbs and protein as my diet, aint I rebellious! Welcome to PT! I'm that weird guy everyone's gonna tell you to avoid, every on or offline community has one or a dozen. AND THERE RIGHT AS RAIN IN A DROUGHT WHEN THE FISH ARE BEGGING TO LIVE IN YOUR CLOGGED TOILET! (Sorry about the strangeness of that comment, but It's almost 1 AM, and I don't drink coffee.)

Family embarrassed? ME TOO!!! My Mum keeps saying things like "I can't believe you've got a crush on a dead guy." I don't think she quite understands, don't you? And it doesn't matter if you're not pom. I'm a pom, but i've lived in NZ for the last ten years, so I"m kind of a NZer.

Hi Morwen, welcome to our happy family. :happyelf:

I'm a native Washingtonian (State, not D.C.) and I have found that this site caters to all nationalities and ages, as long as they are interested in the good Professor's writings.

Welcome Morwen to PT. You will definitely have a good time here. There are folks from all around the globe at this site, as well as others from the States like us (I'm from Iowa.) Everyone here loves Tolkien and have a good time discussing his works. Personally I love the quirkier members the best as you never know what to expect of them. When in doubt about things, feel free to email a council member as they are always most helpful and patient. Looking forward to reading your posts Morwen!
