Man, [Woman!] of February

Postby Ugluk » Wed Feb 01, 2006 8:53 am

Well. February. The second month of the year, and, perhaps coincidentally, the very month of the year that my birthday lands in.

:roll:

[/shameless plug]

But back on point. Due to an egregious lack of enthusiasism in the vote, I have decided not to make voting for women mandatory for this month. You can vote for the guys if you want. However, given that woman have been shockingly underrepresented in this competition, I am calling for those of you to cast aside the sexist notions that cloud your minds and -

Yeah. I think you get the picture.

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 Tolkien because he won last month

* 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.
** 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.


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
November '04 Legolas
December '04 Faramir
January '05 Turin
February '05 Eowyn
March '05 Faramir
April '05 Gandalf
May '05 Faramir
June '05 Gimli
July '05 Faramir
Augest '05 Legolas
September '05 Faramir
October '05 Galadriel
November '05 Frodo
December '05 Faramir
January '06 Tolkien

It's very sporting of you, Ugluk, not to insist on a woman-only vote this month. However, to show that a fazgul can be sporting too, I will vote only for women this month--women who have a connection to Faramir :wink:

My first vote for Woman of Middle Earth for February:

Finduilas, because she was Faramir's mother.

Yes, very sporting of you, Ugluk! I shall strive to add women to my voting. When I'm not voting for Celeborn, that is.

Okay, so my first vote of February goes to....*drum roll* Galadriel because she married Celeborn. :lol:

Thanks, guys. :)

Today's vote goes to Luthien because Beren is the one who usually gets the votes.

Rosie Cotton because she had incredible patience waiting for Sam to get the guts to ask to marry her, and THEN because she proceded to have a dozen or so children! :)

Eowyn, because I came across someone named "Rohan" today. I wonder if his parents were fans? :D

(I was going to vote Aragorn yesterday, because I had to tell people "I'm older than I look.")

"I'm older than I look."

Sounds very familiar! I always have to assure people that I am not my younger brother's younger sister.


Idril because of her doubts about Maeglin and the tunnel she had had built that enabled her people to escape.
