Happy 10 Kaya, you little someone you .
The Jool looks AMAZING on you dear
Thanks sweets. Ah, it's a bit like in RL: at one point you just start feeling old when another birthday hits you. Though this one indeed came with an incredibly lovely jewel.

And to my fellow '02ers! It's suspenseful to see when Vana's badge will appear.

Arwenelf was the one who introduced me to TORC in the first place -- she'd be looking for info on the movies, I assume, and came across the site and we both joined. By that point, I'd probably seen FOTR half a dozen times (I saw it in theatres 11 times!!) and was mostly a huge Aragorn fangirl. I remember that we had just watched Princess of Thieves, a movie about Robin Hood's daughter Gwyn, who is the reason for my screen name (for some reason I thought GwenElf looked better than GwynElf).
I spent months in the Reading Room, mostly reading, then writing (about Aramir and co), before I actually stopped by the forums. I had absolutely no idea how a messageboard worked, and I recall jumping into a thread in Tom's that was an attempt to write out the entire script of FOTR, one line at a time. Someone had gotten a line wrong and I tried to make a post in the middle of the thread, correcting that person, and then was just plain confused when my post ended up at the very end of the thread! I honestly don't remember where I went from there, but of course I found my way to RP, the Bard's Guild, the Rings Guild, and then some.
Luthy was the first person I met off-board; she'd commented on something I'd put in the RR and we discovered she lived about an hour from where Arwenelf and I lived at the time, so we arranged a meeting, complete with a whooooolllee lot of parental supervision -- her mom's telling of this story is pretty hilarious (I believe Luthy was 13 and Nen and I were 16). We actually met at Nen's church where her dad is the pastor and then did archery in her yard--nothing brings TORCers together like having to hunt for arrows in a large field! After that we would meet halfway at the same rest stop every time -- her parents would drop her off there to come to my/Nen's house, or our parents would drop us off to go to her house. I still drive past that rest area and think about all the rendezvous we held at that McDonalds.
kaya -- Staying up for the WCAs, such good times! My parents just could not fathom what I was doing and why anyone in the world would want to have an online awards ceremony!
I also remember joining in the evening, so until tonight, I will anxiously await the arrival of my shiny!

Actually, it is ONE dust bunny wad in particular, an ancient and engorged tangle of flotsam, jetsom and detritus, cobwebs, old popcorn, a cheese puff... you name it (though why you'd want to name a cheese puff is beyond me..?), and what is more startling, astounding and well, just awe inducing is that this particular dust bunny sits up, blinks and starts to speak....
'...*cough*, ...uh, uuhhmm, ah... Did someone mention my name??? *yawn*'
