Thread: ATTN: petty
(I noticed this elsewhere but didn't want to spam up the Big Bad Serious Thread.)
You're as mad as a shrew,
And you're just as grumpy,
With sharp teeth, it's true![/i:199dfrsf]
Wise Odo on behalf of all Odo's!!!!
An Eldo, I'm IN LOVE WITH YOUR AVATAR!!!!!!!!!!!
Joesph Gordon Levitt=
I love him!
I decided to switch from a Predators avatar to an Inception one after seeing the second. The [SPOILER]zero-g fight[/SPOILER] was one of my favourite scenes so I thought Arthur was a good choice for an avatar.
Actually, it's probably just as well I am a "Hobbit Forum Monogamist" for I spend an inordinant amount of time here. Imagine if I got my teeth into other forums! I might have to give up sleeping!
Ha-ha! Have I stumbled on a conundrum here? If I was on other Forums, I'd be in a sense 'sleeping' around, while never actually sleeping!
NB Eldorion, I have tried to use a variety of Big Words in this post - because I do want you very much to include me among your 'Intelligent Forumers.' (I have checked the Thesaurus and Oxford Dictionary and have reason to believe I have used said Big Words correctly).
...Not to say that we aren't silly at times, too.
NB Odo, you have indeed stunned me with your stupendously well-worded post. In fact, I would be an utter imbecile not to count you an 'intelligent forumer' as your profundity regularly reduces me to pure awe at your the breadth and verbosity of your wisdom. Truly, you are a marvel even among the most intelligent of forumers!
When it comes to forums, I am a freak. I am on everything: Student forums, Harry Potter forums, LOTR forums. Not so much now, as I left a few to concentrate on my studies.
Don't worry Odo. I have been called a troll a many time. But surely this isn't the only forum you will ever go on?! What commitment! By the way, that is a conundrum... I think.
This is just my place to ex-sponge my LOTR obsession in peace without being called weird, obsessive, or annoying. So everyone's happy !!!!!!!!!
Man, i used alot of caps there!
So I'm rather pleased at the thought one day their might be a teacher out there somewhere actively encouraging Tolkien as a subject worthy of study.
I agree 1000% . Your "English" teacher sounds like a literary Philistine . "Fantasy" is the most revealing literary genre there is. As Lewis would say, it allows "truth" (or at least concepts and models of reality) to be smuggled past the "Watchful Dragons" of a stubborn mind.
(Neither, [i:3fnd453h]obviously[/i:3fnd453h]... )
my 8th grade english teacher had a LOTR poster in her room describing all of the characters, had a Gollum book mark, and got excited when she saw me reading ROTK in class.
my 9th grade engilsh teacher had a LOTR poster in his room and made several jokes or connections to it. For example, we were watching the movie Snow Falling on Cedars after reading the book, and he explained (to my less intelligent classmates ) that Ethan Hawke hadn't lost his arm REALLy, but it was an illusion, much like the Hobbit in LOTR.
Luckily, I haven't had any teachers like yours petty, but in 5th grade my teacher didn't want me reading FOTR because it was taking me the whole school year!!!!
This is the forum where I spend the 2nd most time. I am a mod on the private one.
