The TVM -- Oktoberfest!!!!!!!11111111111111

Just as Tolkien and the Inklings used to meet at The Bird and the Baby, come in here to converse about whatever might be on your mind. This is the place for all off-topic conversation.

Yea, the deer munch the tulips around here too. I have loads of daffodils that bloom in April that don't get eaten, at least. :D

An example.... (not my photo, pulled from the innernut)...

Welcome to the merry month of June! I was quite startled to learn that I have been nominated for an Outstanding Achievement award by my local theater, for my performance in their acting program - shockingly! It's a confidence boost to be sure, but totally unexpected.

Favorite things! I have so many favorite things: reading, writing, acting, watching (and reviewing) movies. I love cats and dogs, having many of my own. My favorite movies are the LOTR trilogy and Wonder Woman. My favorite food is probably the pizza from Frank Pepe's Pizzeria (the greatest pizza in Connecticut, according to food critics). My favorite time of day is dawn. Favorite accent? Australian. Favorite actor and actress? Viggo Mortensen and Gal Gadot. Favorite snack? Cinnamon brown-sugar Pop-Tart. Favorite TV show? Would have been Game of Thrones had not the finale been a disappointment, so Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

[I don't know how many favorite things I can list before I just start rambling! :lol: ]

I find these scary yet soothing at the same time. Love looking out from my window for as long as they last.

https://youtu.be/D7sztsqEiQM

Since Beatles music is not available to view or share over the net ; my favorite Beatles tunes,(in no particular order),
She Loves You, Hello Goodbye, A Hard Days Night, Please Please Me, Another Girl

Funny how the individual recordings aren't prohibited

My favorite band is Fleetwood Mac - and my favorite tunes are The Chain and Rhiannon. The song Rhiannon actually inspired a character in the novel I'm currently writing, which is pretty cool.

Thor,l you're writing a book? Excellent!


"The Sound of Music" is now tripping its way through my brain with Favourite Things...

Hmm my favourite band is Queen, my favourite alive singer is Chris Tomlin (deceased one is Freddie Mercury) my favourite movie is LOTR (else I'd be ousted from Torc!) favourite TV show is a toss up between Firefly and Gilmore Girls, favourite season is Autumn/Fall, favourite accent is UK (whether it be English, Scottish, Welsh or Irish...except David Beckham) favourite snack is chips/crisps, favourite place/city to visit is London, favourite book is too hard to pick, though anything by Anne Maccaffrey would be very high on the list. Favourite actor is a toss up between David Tennant and Tom Hiddleston with high mention of Nathan Fillion, Hugh Jackman and Chris Hemsworth. And the best ice cream is cookie dough!

That's probably more than you needed to know about me.

Yes! Yes I am - it's a fantasy novel: I've been working on it for a couple of years now, and it keeps getting bigger and bigger, and much darker and more intense. There are gods and monsters, and even a dragon (you can't go wrong with a dragon), and yet in the heart of it all is a small town modeled off a Midwestern American town around the end of the 19th Century. I'm currently rewriting the entire beginning.

Anne MacCaffrey was a brilliant author: I love all of her books. Tom Hiddleston is a wonderful actor, and just a good person all-around. And cookie-dough ice cream is heavenly.

Ice cream ---- Tin Roof Sundae.

I love so many books, LOTR near the top, of course.
More recently I read 'A Gentleman in Moscow' which I really enjoyed. :D

Thor, other Torcers have had books published. Perhaps you will soon be part of that list!!! :D

Partial to plain old vanilla but I'm willing try any flavor as long as there is no mint involved ..
