Man/Woman of October

Postby Ugluk » Sun Sep 30, 2007 10:18 pm

There was going to be something really witty here, but I'm starting to run out of witty things to say about months. I feel bad about that, so here's a joke:

A blind guy walks into a bar.
I really should have told him that it was there.


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 Elrond 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 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
August '06 Boromir
September '06 Faramir
October '06 Celeborn
November '06 Bill the Pony
December '06 Faramir
January '07 Maedhros
February '07 Ugluk
March '07 Rosie
April '07 Arwen
May '07 Bilbo
June '07 Legolas
July '07 Shadowfax
August '07 Gandalf
September '07 Elrond

If you missed voting the first day due to time zones, you may vote twice for the missed day and the current day. This only applies for the first day of the month. If you are going to be gone for several days, you may not post multiple votes in a single post, to have them "apply" for later days. They will not be counted.

I think that Iris had a good idea to vote for J.R.R. Tolkien, so that's my vote today.

:D I like the joke, Ugluk!

Since I can't vote for the master himself, I'm going to vote for Ringwraith #9 which is sort of like love potion number nine, but not really.l

Feanor because he's an instigator. He made things happen. Not necessarily good things, but then again, that's what makes him an interesting character.

Ulmo because maybe if I nominate him he will stop the rain that is threatening to spoil my 3 October celebration.

Oct. 3 celebration? Do tell!

JRR Tolkien because he's the reason we're all here after all.

Ahhm local celebration. On 3 October 1574 the Spaniards lifted the siege of Leiden .
Ever since Leiden and the region around goes more or less crazy on that day. :D.
And apparently my nomination has had a some effect because though its still grey it isn't raining anymore . Yay

I had to hike up and down a mountain today carrying very heavy things, and spent most of the time wishing I had wings. So a vote today for The Moth, because he can fly.

Well I would like to nominate Ulmo again because he saved my 3 October celebration but I can't, so I nominate Pippin because the celebration was a lot of fun.

Thorondor because he helped the elves and their allies in many occasions.

MoME 2013 results are in!

The Sons of Fëanor re-embodied in the beginning of the Fourth Age? Yes, for The Maedhros and Tygarya Saga – and, as fire-hearted as ever!

Fėanor because we did not have internet for half a day and he, as the genius of geniuses, would have been helpful. I could have sent him over to the company to help and/or intimidate.
