Episode 3: Return of the Michigan Guild

The varied peoples of Middle-earth at times found unity in their pursuits, and all too often experienced deep rifts. Engage in lively conversations as we banter about the differences between the Alliances, and recruit for our People as well. Remember, keep it friendly.

Episode 3: Return of the Michigan Guild

Postby Arwenelf » Sat Feb 24, 2007 3:13 pm

We have now entered a new chapter in this saga. Many of us no longer live in Michigan, but that is ok. Here is a place to relax and reminisce about the good ol' days, and of course, what's happening now. Welcome-pull up a chair and grab a smoothie or latte.

No bad weather here :) A little snowy, but nothing serious. How about you all?

Sil- How was the play and the drive home?

Luthy- A boyfriend, eh? I hear his name is Tim :) What does he look like, how old, etc? Hehe.

A party sounds great! All we need is a little cake, ice cream, lattes and of course Josh *Josh magically appears*

I think we all need to get together and do a little Luthy-wheedling, shes rather tightlipped about Tim. (Tho there is a rumor going round that he's an enchanter) :wink:

My brother is taking my car down to Indiana to go backpacking, so I'd have to drive the van. And I'm not liking that idea. But we'll see.

Lesse, picture.... Tamaki! Willow hates him, Dad rolled his eyes, and Tama-kun's too hyper to care either way. He's also discovered the "crawl under the covers" game and seems to think my face tastes good. :P

Snoooowing again!

Yes. :shock:

Also, I wasn't getting email updates for this thread for some reason. And I forget to check unless I get emails. :P

Also, I don't know what you people want to know! :P

First, rumors of his cross-dressing have been greatly exaggerated. :rofl:

(He did it, but he did it to impress me. :P)

(His fingernails and toenails are still purple from when I painted them. :rofl: )

He doesn't do that without lots of pushing and shoving from me though. :P

His name is indeed Tim, and he's a junior, a classics and English double major. He writes fantasy and science fiction, mostly short stories and novellas, and has had five (or maybe it's six now) published in various magazines. He wants to maybe be an English professor, and he'd be great at it because he's really passionate about it. (Which is why I probably shouldn't be a classics professor, I just don't care that much. Law school here I come!)

He's not all that tall (just a bit taller than me) and not all that dark (he's mostly German) but he is handsome! :love:

He has longish brown wavy hair and a reddish beard which is scratchy but I like it. :P

He's Lutheran, and he calls me a dirty papist and I call him a crazy Protestant and he sings A Mighty Fortress Is Our God at me and then I hit him and threaten to burn him alive. :P

We spend a ton of time together snuggled up and talking about philosophy, which is pretty awesome.

The other night he held me for an hour when I had a panic attack even though it was 3 AM and he had to get up at 8.

I :love: him. :D

What else did you want to know? :P

Here he is in the dress... pretty much everything he's wearing is mine... :rofl: And yes there are butterflies on his thumbs. :P It was a party where everyone was supposed to dress up like fairies!

Image

And here we are together, but the color's really bad:

Image

And here for good measure is me with my roommates Rick and Johanna. :P:P

I still can't believe you got him to wear all that! :rofl::rofl:

Lutheran, huh? You've got your work cut out for you, but not as cut out as it could be. =:)

Tell Rick I like his outfit in that picture! :D

You wear the same dress size? That'll make shopping for clothes simpler.

Luthy- Awwww :) HOw long have you two been going out? It sounds like you're a good match.

A male roommate, eh? That's just so weird for me (not saying its bad or anything)...we have open dorm night (7-11) 4 nights a week, and thats it...unless you live in a townhouse/flat and the opposite sex can visit anytime..just not stay there.

I was looking at pics of us the other day...it kind of made me sad, I miss those times :( I know we've had our differances, but still....

Sil- AWwww! He's so cute and cudley. And I like that smiley...since when have we had that!

TTBK- HI! Long time no see. And congrats ;)

Rick isn't her roommate... he just.. practically lives there. :P Or so I understand. :D We have co-ed dorms, so having guys hanging out in dorms is completely normal.

We've had that smiley since I found it on some random website and html-image-coded it. :D

:rofl:

Won't it though? :P

Alex, I know! :love:

Sil, I'll tell him if I remember once I get back to school!

And yeah, Sil is right, Rick isn't actually my roommate. He lives just down the hall and he's Johanna's best friend so he practically lives in my room (especially when he's upset or not feeling well), but he doesn't actually sleep there most of the time. Plus he's very very openly gay so it's not like it would bother me even if he did. :P We have co-ed dorms so he can hang out in our room whenever he wants. He gets kicked out of his own room a lot so his roommate and his girlfriend can "cuddle" B^ so we let him live in our room instead. B^

I'm doing alright.

Things are a little hectic, and I don't seem to be able to dedicate the time I want to the things I should be doing, but that's the way it goes, no? Other than school and work I haven't been doing a whole lot.

I did see 3oo though! In the IMAX even! It was fantabulous! I about died in the theater. But that's the the extent of my fun-having lately. How are you?!

Hi Skuld!!! It's good to see you :) :) I know what you mean about lack of time and what not...no time for fun (stupid bio labs...speaking of which, I need to check to see if my fruit flies have had babies/larva).

I did go bowling on Saturday night which was amazing--it was nice to get off campus :)

This weekend I have major homework to do--2 lab reports (one that is an experiment that I have to make up and it involves a 15 minute speech, ugh) and two tests to study for. So, basically I have no life and my poor horse is being neglected and I better sell him soon...


Anyways: 1 1/2 weeks till Spring break!!!! YAY!!!!! And hopefully I will make it down to AA to rock climb (which will be interesting since I am kind of out of shape and have climbed once this semesteR).

When do you get out for the summer? Your spring break seems really late in the year, especially if you get out at the same time I do.

My last day of exams are May 8th--I don't know if we started earlier than you or what (it was Jan. 6th or something). When is your last day? They put Spring break now because of Easter--a lot of people are from all over, so they want to give people a chance to go home for Easter.

Yumm--licoriceeeeee! *Actually though, candy is one of the things I'm not really missing...more like cake and bread*

How has you're guys' week going?

Luthy- How is Tim?

So, after attending a film festival last night (put on by the school) I decided that the formal life is not for me....it was extremely formal (people in prom dresses) and I felt so out of sorts..so, I think this means I can't marry someone famous because I would have a nervous break down....

Off to lunch--joy, leftovers (the one bad thing about the weekend).
