The TVM goes thread-diving...

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.

Hi all! :hihi:

heliona, the little one is still little. Gollum would have scared me at that age too. :D
Nice to see you!

Rose, looks like a lovely evening. *snags a s'more*


The temps will hit the low 80s again today. :P
I am ready for Fall. The REAL Fall with crispy weather.

Bonfire sounds good, Rose! And I never say no to lembas. :D

Tooks, yes, I'm not surprised she wasn't happy. It was only on the TV because it happened to be one, rather than we deliberately showed it to her (obviously, she's going to read the books first ;) ).

Well of course the books come first!!!! :D

If I would have known about The Hobbit when I first started reading on my own, I would have loved it, I think.

I didn't like The Hobbit the first time I read it, and truthfully I prefer the movies to the book. (I know, I know, SACRILEGE! :rofl: )

That doesn't happen often, as we all know, but sometimes it does. For example, I saw the Mortal Engines movie before I read the book, and while I liked the book, I thought the movie was actually better.

Hello TVMers!!!

heliona. The Hobbit should be read for her, I agree with Tooks. I actually read Lord of the Rings before I read the Hobbit.....at least all the way through. Took me three times, I kept getting stuck at Spiders and Flies for some reason....now I can't count how many times I have read the whole shebang! Yes, I just typed shebang!!!


Fall reminds me of big warm sweaters....

Image

Oooooh bon fires, Rose that is the perfect thing for Fall!! :D

Tooks, :( we hots rain and 60's today, very fall-like. I hope yours shows up soon.

Iris, I would guess with you being fairly close to Tooks....you are also waiting for fall?

Have a grand one TVMers....I may return to this thread this evening (my time)....just to see if Tooksies made her grand 25,000 post here.
Love is as big or as little as a hug!!

I was a reader of historical fiction and had never read fantasy. When Harry Potter came out I read them to see what they were about (my daughter was just at that age where she was beginning to read that sort of thing). I enjoyed those so much I wondered what other fantasy I may have passed up so I picked up 'The Hobbit' and the rest is history.

I haven't made lembas in awhile.. but I suppose I should break some out for the occasion!

So...it has been almost 18 years since I started lurking at TORC, though not actually joining until April of 2002. It has been a long, fun, happy, and sometimes sad road from that first toe tentatively tipped into the waters of the moobies forum, until now. I want to give a shout out to all the old-timers and new-timers that helped me along the way. :drink:

I especially want to acknowledge some those no longer with us:

rowanberry, who was a stalwart of MoME and Most. :(
Cock_Robin :(
Old_Toby :(
and of course, our dear friend Calma. :(


So lift a glass of your favorite beverage to them, and to yourselves. :D

Lookie lookie I see Tookie posted her big one this evening!!! :happydance: :horse: :woah: :drink: :clap: :love: :hug:

This year I am actually looking forward to fall and winter. I do not have to go out in it or drive if I do now wish so let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!! Right now all we are getting is more and more and more rain! It keeps us green but it sure is dreary. Now the thunder and lightening storms we have had here in the state for the last week and a half were wonderful! Loud boomers and big flashes!! It was a real treat to watch and experience.. Where we live we usually do not get those storms and I sure did miss them from where I was born and raised.

Yea, it's supposed to be autumn, but we hit the 80s F again yesterday. :P
At least it wasn't humid. The bonfire would be great for roasting some hot dogs, or maybe some marshmallows. :D

It's definitely autumn here, although today got into the 70's.

Here's a bonfire with 'magic' smoke. Great for hot dogs, marshmallows... or just sitting around watching the moon.

*sends some rain over to Tooks* You can have some of it!!!

Rose, a great bonfire. I would love to howl or dance in the moonlight (with Vanadarlin' of course), roast some dogs or melt some 'mellows.... Either way, it would be with great company.

Here is my snarky take on a fall turkey....gearing up for the feast????
