Hi Tooks, nl and Thor! :hihi:

Tell me a little about yourself Thor. Sounds like you have an interesting family. :rofl: Who's having a baby? My youngest is four months old now so babies are very much on my mind haha. (She just had shots yesterday and is not a very happy camper)

Yesterday, for Tolkien Reading Day, I did some reading of LOTR - it was quite nice to relax all day with a book that never grows old however many times I read it. I was quite happy to see that Amazon was also getting in on the excitement of Tolkien Reading Day, in preparation for the upcoming TV series. It's a good time to be a Tolkien fan!

I ended up not doing anything for this year's Tolkien Reading Day or the simultaneous and equally important Waffle Day, so I'll have to make a point of bringing one of my cheap (ie, I wouldn't be torn up if they got syrup on them) mass market paperback editions with me to Waffle House next year. :wink:

Hi everyone!

Joke month, eh? I have always been notably bad at making jokes, so this should be interesting :D

So my sister found the guy in California, and now, having spent one weekend with him, has decided they're dating. However, she's now off in Florida with a yoga class, so we'll see how long that lasts...

My other sister, the one having the baby, still has not had the baby: or, if she has, she won't tell anyone. You see, my aunt's birthday was a few days ago, and my sister and my aunt have a very rocky relationship - so the general consensus in the family at the moment is that my sister had her baby on my aunt's birthday and doesn't want to tell anyone. For months she's been freaked out that the baby would have to share a birthday with someone else in the family.

Thor!!! Congrats to your sister and her husband and YOU, uncle! (I am assuming on your gender there, please correct me if I'm wrong!)

I have THREE phone interviews today and my stress levels are overflowing. :roll: We are trying to move closer to family but for some reason I applied for a job in Idaho which is even farther away. Seems like a cool job in a cool town though but what was I thinking :rofl:

Congrats, Uncle Thor.

Lothy, I hope the interviews go well. Best thing is they can't see you so hopefully that should make it easier. ANd you can have notes in front of yourself.

I bought my Endgame Gold Class ticket the other day. They were selling out fast and at 3hr + a comfy seat where staff bring you coffee and snacks seemed to be the answer. Also it is a public holiday for us so no work!!

I just hope my chest infection is better by then. I think I would be dissolved my death stares if I coughed...

Hey, nl. Enjoy the show. We don't have nice theaters like that around here. And get better! Coughing is no fun.

Luthy, good luck with the job! When I hear Idaho, I always think about a woman I met on the train who said, "I'm from Idaho, not Iowa. Potatoes, not corn."

Nl, lucky! I don't know when I'll see it. I'll probably try for our local little theater where half the seats are old armchairs with tables and you can get excellent burgers brought to you.

Wait, a joke.

Being an uncle is going to be wonderful! There's a big reunion planned for June, when my sister is gonna come over from England to meet us all here in Connecticut with the baby. Can't wait! Thank you so much for all the well wishes! I'll pass along your kind words to my sister too. :D

Idaho is quite a nice place, from what I've heard - I think my other sister went there (or perhaps it was Montana? I can't recall). Good luck!

I haven't got my tickets yet: I'm terrified they're all gonna be sold out. That's very unfair of you to have nice comfy theater-seats and waiters - none of that over here, unfortunately!

See I don't understand why the US, which makes most of these blockbusters, doesn't invest in more speciality theatres. My local has 3 Gpld Class theatres. 2 have only 16 seats (recliners) and the 3rd has 40 I think. Sometimes I feel it isn't worth the outrageous cost of $32AU (more on public holidays) but having them bring you food, alcohol, coffee etc is kinda nice. I rarely do this nowdays. The movie has to be super special or really long. I did all 3 LOTR GC and about 3 HP as well. This is my first Marvel though. I'm sitting in the back row (as you really don't want to be that close to the screen) and can duck out to the bathroom if necessary...the movie is 3hrs 2 mins long.

Wow, that was a lot of useless knowledge.

Enjoy being an Uncle, Thor. I love being an aunt. I can spoil the kids then give them back. :)

Want to hear a joke about paper? Nevermind it's tearable.

Hi Calma!!

Thanks for all the well wishes on the interviews. They went pretty well. I have a campus visit for one in Indiana just an hour from my parents' farm in a couple weeks so my fingers are crossed for that. They might even have a job for Tim too! The universe has not been very nice to me the past few years so I'm hoping this one works out in our favor.

:D. Good one, Frelga. Made me think of duck jokes...


A policeman in the big city stops a man in a car with a duck in the front seat. "What are you doing with that duck?" He exclaimed, "You should take it to the zoo." The following week, the same policeman sees the same man with the duck again in the front seat, with both of them wearing sunglasses. The policeman pulls him over. "I thought you were going to take that duck to the zoo!" The man replied, "I did. We had such a good time we are going to the beach this weekend!"
