Man/Woman of August

Postby Ugluk » Wed Aug 02, 2006 8:30 am

It's August. Often one of the hottest months of the year, particularly where I live. As temperatures reach record highs and we risk heatstroke by merely stepping outside, it's a great time to sit inside and tap away at our little keyboards and give voice to the temperature by simply voting for very hot people.

Ergo:


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 Faramir 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
February '06 Luthien
March '06 Faramir
April '06 Aragorn
May '06 The Moth
June '06 Eomer
July '06 Faramir


If you missed voting the first day due to time zones, you may vote twice for the missed day and the current day.

Aragorn because whether out being a Ranger or sitting on a throne, he is consistently hot. 8)

I don´t want to be nitpicky, Ugluk, but you said in the rules that we can´t vote for Eomer this month.


Here´s my vote for August 1st:

Boromir because he is the best choice when I can´t vote for Faramir.

Now for August 2nd:

Ugluk because he is the master of this thread. Thank you! :)

Aug 1st:

Frodo, the bravest of hobbits, and that's saying a lot.

Aug 2nd:

Finrod, because his name starts with the same letter ;), and he saved Beren's life.

Aug. 3 Glorfindel because he's worse off than Celeborn...At least Celeborn got to appear in the movies!

Aug. 4Arwen because unless there has been a typo she's never won. That seems like a weird oversight, considering an insect has.

Aug. 5 Celeborn because he seems to be gaining momentum and I'm ok with jumping on that bandwagon.

Aug. 6 Arwen once again, because she's never won.

On an unrelated note:

Boromir because her brother won last month. ;)


Pronouns! Watch your pronouns, people! You're reminding me of my ESL Grade 1 students, and I shouldn't have to think about them for another 2 weeks. You're spoiling my summer holidays! :lightening: :D
