Man/Woman of November -- Read the First Post!!!!!

Postby Ugluk » Mon Nov 01, 2004 9:24 am

Edit: Got it all done. I'm a genius. In other news, if you can vote in the Presidential elections and don't, consider it a moral failure if you ever vote in this thread again. :x This means YOU!


Man/Woman of November

Rules:

1) You can only vote once a day ****
2) You can't vote for the same person two days in a row ***
3) You must state why you voted for the person
4) Person must be Lord of the Rings/Tolkien related
5) Votes must be in bold
6) You can't vote for Merry because he won last month

*** This means you may not vote for the same person consecutively. If you vote for Frodo Monday and do not vote at all Tuesday, than you cannot vote for Frodo on Wednesday.
**** This applies to whatever time zone you are in. Even if the TORC time works out so according to it you're posting within the same day, it doesn't matter. But don't abuse your authority.

Due to popular request, this is the list of the previous winners. As each month passes, we will add the next winner to it:

June '03 Haldir
July '03 Orophin
August '03 Legolas
September '03 Frodo
October '03 Sam
November '03 Beren
December '03 Faramir
January '04 Pippin
February '04 Faramir
March '04 Eowyn
April '04 Aragorn
May '04 Boromir
June '04 Eomer
July '04 Faramir
August '04 Theodred
September '04 Faramir
October '04 Merry


I'll vote for Arwen because she has never even come close to winning before. :(

Aragorn because last night, while driving to a party clad in a furry Viking outfit with lace-up boots and a winged helmet, I got pulled over by a cop. The axe in the front seat didn't really help matters.

Why Aragorn? Because Viggo Mortensen also attracted the attention of the local constabulatory, by waving his sword around on the street. He had a much better excuse though. :P

Interesting... No votes for the Faz yet? Well, I'll just keep it that way a bit longer. :P
My first vote of November will be for Theodred because today is the Day of the Dead in Mexico. 8)

People might assume that I always vote for the Faz...but I'm voting for Legolas today, b/c my daughter swoons for him.

Is it really day of the dead in Mexico? Is that like that thing in Dust???

Hmmm, let's see. I think I'll vote for Legolas because he looks rather beautiful at the coronation. :D He's worth a bit of a swoon as well ;)

Aragorn because that part in FOTR where he's waving the torch around and scaring off all the Nazgul is just freaking cool.

Theodred, because right now he is probably being devoured by beetles and worms and other flesh-eating organisms, but do you hear him complaining? Noooooo. We could all learn from that.

Maedhros because...um...yeah...what was I going to say again?

:rofl: MIS ;) Of course, the day you happen to get pulled over, you'd be dressed up all strange. Hmmm...makes you wonder what other sorts of things the cops see on Halloween. :P
