Hello one and all! <BR><BR>I haven't been able to find any internet access until now, but I have had the most incredible time in the last week. I am so at home here in the UK and I never want to leave. Monday will come too soon.<img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-sad.gif"border=0> <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-sad.gif"border=0> I really can't make this too long though because I'm at a hotel and they're charging me lots to be on right now. <BR><BR>Speaking of which, I'm at the Holiday Inn London-Ealing right now, just in case someone feels the need to give me a ring, because I'm so close <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif"border=0><img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0> I'm in room 016. Wink wink. Nudge nudge.<BR><BR>I do have most of saturday free Ren, but I don't know when we're going to be let loose to roam. Where will everyone be afterwards and how can I find you all and recognise you when I do find you? I'm losing my mind with excitement right now. eee!!<img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0><img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0><img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0><BR><BR>I will get on later I think, but now I must go. I need to save up as much money as I can, but expexct a full report when I get back to the states.<BR><BR>Loves and hugs to all. Hope to see you soon.<BR><BR>Bou.

It's making her understand we can't talk to the computer back. She really likes when you talk to us, and thinks every time the computer is on, it should be talking to her<img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0>Hehehehehe<BR>BTW I will be going to wally world in a few to look for a mic, and if they don't have one, I promise I will have one by Sunday<img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><BR><BR><strong>Bou,</strong>Have a good time for all of us<img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0> you will be missed!<BR><BR><strong>Cassie,</strong>Have a good time this weekend, we will see you when you get back<img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><BR><BR>Everyone else have a great weekend<img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><BR>Donnamarie

Sorry I missed you after you had made such an effort Donna. I am looking forward to sunday (or monday morning).<BR>Glad your kids are somewhat figuring it out.<img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif"border=0> <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-shocked.gif"border=0> I want to be your niece.<img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0><img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif"border=0> <BR>I actually have 4 LOTR posters . I just got them a while ago but I need to get some poster frames before I hang them up. They are just stashed in a tube in my room right now. <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-sad.gif"border=0><BR><BR>Well I have been fairly busy today. I had school and then I worked on a screenplay/script me and my friend are starting on. I have always thought being a director or writer would be fun. I always was interested in looking into it perfessionaly a little down the road but that road is getting short pretty fast and I really should be narrowing my seach down so I can have a chance of knowing what to do in college. I am really excited about this.<img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0> I have been looking into getting some kind of camera for a while now and I think this might just push me to rationilize getting one. I found some softwear online that lets you edit, score and add effects to your movie on your computer. <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-shocked.gif"border=0> it looks really nice. I want to get it.<BR>Well that brings me back to what I did today, After I did little things like that around the house I went to pick up my paycheck from work. I figured it would be really close as to whether I could afford a camera or not. So I was a little nervous but ..... It looks like I will be able to. <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0><img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0><img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0><img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0> Yay! <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0><img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0><img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0><img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0> <BR>Well anywho, I then went to watch a few B-ball games that were before mine. Then I played my game and we won! <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0> It was prob. the funnest game I had ever played. It was great. Then the team went to my friends house to celebrate and had icecream. We are in the tournament now so theese games are pretty good.<BR>Well tomorrow I am going to this prom thingy ( I think I told you guys about it.) and then back to B-ball again.<img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0> <BR><BR>Boo- I got your message. I'm so glad you are having a good time. <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0> I hope you can make it to meet the TORCers around there. Let me know how it goes.<BR><BR>Bye guys!<BR><BR>-Don

That great donna! I can't wait.<img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0><BR><BR>Well I am very proud of myself. I didn't get on TORC for a whole 24 hours. Aren't you proud. <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-tongue.gif"border=0> Its just nice to know that it is possible.<img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif"border=0><BR>Yesterday I went to that prom thing with a friend and it went about the way we thought it would. They gave us free gift bags with a bunch of samples and free stuff in them and then we walked around to all these tables and you entered drawings for free stuff as they tried to get you to buy stuff. I don't know if I won anything big yet. They said they would call or email you if you won. <BR>And My team won our game in our tournament. <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0><img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0><img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0> I think we are in the top four now. I just found out that our next game and possibly the champs ,if we win, I will be out of town.<BR><img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-sad.gif"border=0><img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-sad.gif"border=0><img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-sad.gif"border=0> <BR><BR>This is kinda random but I have really been wanting to start running everyday after my morning class and it has started warming up around here so I am going to start this week. I need you guys to ask me everyday if I have done it k?<img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-tongue.gif"border=0><img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0> If I haven't, I give you permission to yell at me. <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif"border=0> <BR><strong>Donna</strong> I don't think this will interfear with our little morning chats. You might have to wait for an extra 5mins but I normaly am on for a while before you so nothing sould change much. <BR>But I really need you guys to help me stay motivated. I know I am ok in the excersise department but this is something I have wanted to do for a long time and haven't been able to because of time or weather or just I wasn't in the mood at the moment. <BR>Well wish me luck for starting tomorrow.<img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif"border=0> <BR><BR>By the way, How was the mini moot Ren and Boo? Did it work out with you to make it boo??? <BR><BR>-Don

Stumbles in with a huge crash and throws luggage and self onto the floor.<BR><BR>Whew, I'm home!!! My internal clock is messed up and I am all but broke because the dollar's value sucks right now in "the motherland," but I'm home indeed.<BR><BR>Sorry about my absence on Saturday. I so wanted to come, but sometimes it's hard to follow a TORC schedule when travelling with a group from the outside. When you were at the Wallace museum, I was taking a tour of the Windsor castle. oh well. Perhaps I will be back soon enough. That castle has some mean weapons rooms though. <BR><BR>I learned the meaning of "pants" and how to speak like the queen and so on soon enough. So tired now though. jet lag kills. night.<BR><BR>Bou

Jet lag still kills. I woke up at six this morning and I couldn't sleep anymore, so I am deprived and delusional. Biology this morning was torture. Meh.<BR><BR>So, my trip to the UK was incredible and I didn't want to leave. That island is the home to my soul and I was so...at home there. Besides the plumbing, things just made sense there more than they do here. I arrived after a six and a half hour plane trip early Saturday morning and after exchangin money and passport junk and finding the coach, I was on my way to Exeter. I love that town so much. It was one of my favorites over the whole trip. There was a concert at a school there and that night we stayed with host families. <BR><BR>There was church in the morning and another concert sunday night. Before the concert my host family drove my group down to the channel and we went to Sidmouth and to Jacob's Ladder and saw thatched roofs and sheepies and a gorgeous coastline. Charming to the extreme. I was almost disgusting how beautiful it all was. <BR><BR>On monday morning we left Exeter and drove to Glouchester. We saw the cathedral while we were there and they humoured us by letting us sing while we were inside. All those cathedrals have amazing acoustics. We spent Monday night in Bristol. <BR><BR>Tuesday brought Bath and another concert, this time in Bristol.<BR><BR>On Wednesday we left Bristol and drove to London, stopping at Stonehedge and in Salisbury, seeing another cathedral.<img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif"border=0> Girl Talk took place that night with our male choir director as Head Girl.<BR><BR>On Thursday we visited Stratford upon Avon and then Oxford<img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0><img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0><img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0>. I stole a wine list from The Eagle and Child<img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-cool.gif"border=0>...<img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-rolleyes.gif"border=0> This day was one of my favorites because of two beloved writers and the connections with both. <BR><BR>Friday we finally went into London itself and we took a coach tour through the city, stopping at Buckingham Palace, which ended up being the only place on the whole trip that I remembered from my youth, so that was cool. We also stopped at Westmister Abbey. In the afternoon we went to the temple and as we came out the sun was setting behind it and it made for some great photos.<BR><BR>Saturday we went to Windsor and then they set us free in London. After purchasing tickets to Thouroughly Modern Millie, a group of us went to Portobello Road. We saw the show that night and then returned to the hotel.<BR><BR>Sunday was church, which we sang for, and then museums. I chose the Victoria and Albert. There was rehearsal after that and a concert at St. Barnabas which was as spanking as the rest of them were.<BR><BR>Monday morning we got on the plane and by 7pm Eastern standard time I was back in my dorm room. crazy now that it's over. The thing is though that as much as I didn't ever want to leave and as much as I want to stay there forever, the time was right. If I had to leave(which I did<img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-sad.gif"border=0>) yesterday was the time. I'm glad to be back, but not glad to be doing school again. ugh.<BR><BR>I had such a blast and it was so worth the time and money and sacrifice to get there and I can't wait another 13 years before I return again. Sorry again that I couldn't meet with you Ren. I wanted to...<img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-sad.gif"border=0><BR><BR>I just wanted to stop in and say hi to everyone though. I'm thinking of a nap right about now...<BR><BR>Hugs to all. seriously. talk to you soon. And we should do a voice conference again sometime sooner rather than later.<BR><BR>Bou.<BR><BR>PS- i love english chocolate. mmmm, crunchie bars.<BR><BR>PPS- what's with the TV show, there's something about Miriam. Freaky. where is his, her...eh. nevermind.<BR>

Hey Boo, shame you couldn't meet up with some TORCers but I'm glad you had such a great time in my country.<BR><BR>Of course, by sticking to such southern towns you didn't get to see the REAL England (i.e Yorkshire) but I'm sure that's something you can rectify on a future visit<BR><BR><img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><BR><BR>Hey to everyone else. Sorry I haven't been around much lately. Been soo busy with work<img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-sad.gif"border=0>

Hobbi, actually now that you mention it...I am planning on clearing up my little problem. My mother just was offered a better job and she's taking it and we're planning a trip for sometime in the next year. It will be exclusively northern England and Scotland. We miss it too much and my tour has tipped us over the edge. We're going back and we're doing it soon. She mentioned Yorkshire specifically and I nearly fell off my bed. So, it's just a matter of time. Farther away than I wish it was, as it's not tomorrow, but all things happen in their own time.<BR><BR>Thanks for the welcome home everyone. It is good to be back. What's for supper? I'm hungry...<BR><BR>and Don, where are you? It has been waaaaaaay too long and I can't find you anywhere and we really must talk, honey babe, pumpkin city, darlin'.<BR><BR>anyhoo, room checks are tonight and it doesn't help that I have just returned from a holiday. Anyone who has done so will know the condition of my room right now. It hasn't even been 24 hours yet and they expect cleanliness?! heaven bless us all, my suitcase exploded and there are clothes and souviners everywhere. wish me luck, family.<BR><BR>Must be off. Hope to talk soon.<BR><BR>Bou.

Hey guys-<BR><BR>Da da da da! Dress is totally done. Out of my life forever. <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0><img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0><img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0> I'm pretty ahppy about how it turned out. It was actully somewhat pretty. I took some pics of it so I might put them on my part of the website.<BR><BR>Boo- Glad to hear you had a good time. <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0> Sorry you couldn't meet the TORCers. <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-sad.gif"border=0> <BR>What are you talking about ? Are you moving there? Just don't leave before I can make it to BV k?<BR><BR>Ren- Love te sig pic.<img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0> It made me crack up.<BR><BR>Hobb- Haven't heard from you for a while but I hope your doing good. What going on with work? Are you still doing that thing???<BR><BR>Jae- I am so excited about helping you with the dress. <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0><img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0><img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0> I love doing LOTR sewing stuff. I wish we were closer so I could help you in person. I have an extra of that pattern I could send you if you want. You would be able to make the main part of the dress with it. and then the sleeves you would just need to sew big tube like things. The thing that would be the most trouble would be that drapie neck line but I think I have an idea of how it would work. I will get on it. To answer your question about how to get the silver leaves on the arm fabric ,Your best bet is to find some fabric with it printed on it already. Another option is beading <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-tongue.gif"border=0> or applicas. I would STRONGLY sugest just looking for fabric that already has it. I was at a fabric store about a half hour from my house ( I don't get there very often since I can't drive till May 1st) And Oh man! It was heaven! there was SO much stuff. I had a great time just looking at it and dreaming about making LOTR stuff. They had some kinda sheer dark maroon stuff with gold leaves on it. If they would have been silver I would have boughten it for you and just mailed it to you. I also saw this stuff they had locked up in a glass case. It was this AWESOME white silk that had beading and designs all over it. It would have been perfect for that galadriel dress. Too bad it cost a pretty penny (or two actually).<BR><BR>Donna- I was up real late (or early) last night and I slept in so I missed our chat today. <BR><img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-sad.gif"border=0> sorry. I'll shoot for tomorrow.<img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif"border=0><BR><BR>Cassie- Well don't stay away too long now. <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif"border=0><BR><BR>talk to you guys later!!<BR><BR>-Don

Don- if you can send me those patterns that would be great! And all help is needed <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif"border=0> I’ll wait for your finds on the drapey neckline. And I’ll get right on the leave printed fabric <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif"border=0> Mind you if I can’t find similar fabric I can always let you know <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif"border=0> I’ll pay you back of course. But let me hunt down fabric around here first <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0> once again thanks so much for all your help. I’m planning on getting started with fabric hunting this friday just to see if they have what I want.

Ok Jae.<img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0> I wouldn't have expected you to pay me if I had gotten it. Its not fair to just buy somthing you had never seen before. If it had been exactly the right kind and print I would have just givin it to you. It wouldn't have been too much. <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif"border=0> Does anyone know how much it would be to send a small package or envolope to you jae? I will look at the pattern and see about how much fabric you will need. I think I got 6 for mine and I had quite a bit left over. I'm thinking for the neckline you might need to do some handstiching if you want it to lay right. It won't be too hard. I could walk you through it.<BR><BR>Well My running plan was going great untill the weather decided to be cold agian. <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-rolleyes.gif"border=0> There was frost everywhere this morning. Just a few days ago it was 70. <BR><BR>Hey hobb- I think I told you guys that me and a friend are writing and making a movie and I was wondering if maybe we could use some of your music in it. That be ok with you?<BR><BR>Huggs to rest of Fam!<BR><BR>-Don

Don- i'm going to a fabric shop in town tomorrow so i'll have a good look around <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif"border=0> and as for sending me stuff it depens on how heavy it is i think. and of course on the stamps. I'll let you know if i find anything tomorrow <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif"border=0><BR><BR>Big hug to the rest of the family, need to be off and work

Alright. <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0> Good luck on the hunt. <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif"border=0> I was thinking about sending you that pattern and then maybe making a pattern piece for the neck to put in it too. Oh well I will look into it when I am at the post office sometime.<BR><BR>-Don
