The "Farewell to Torc" form letter.....

Just as Tolkien and the Inklings used to meet at The Bird and the Baby, come in here to converse about whatever might be on your mind. This is the place for all off-topic conversation.

Oreo, that is truly a work of art. <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0> In the short time I've spent here I have already seen (how many? <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-shocked.gif"border=0>) threads to which this is applicable. You rock. <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0><BR><BR>Edit: Oh wow, and you posted it over a year ago, that makes it even better.

Oreo, you're right. Mentioning the "original queen of TORC" by name should have brought a hailstorm or locusts or something....hmmm, maybe this rash that won't go away.......<img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-shocked.gif"border=0> Oooops too much information<img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-tongue.gif"border=0>......

Ha - just revisited the letter - inspired me to post a useless thread which mocks the form letter idea - <BR><BR>Too many birthdays and event sto keep up with? Use the Handy Dandy form letter!<BR><BR>The "Happy Everything on Torc" Form Letter<BR><BR>not to downplay the idea of personalizing the milestones of each member - but i just wish i had time to post in them all - Instead i will jsut make a post in general to them all!!

I can't believe I hadn't noticed this thread before, thanks Armenelos for placing that referral over in TOR. <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><BR><BR>What is even more funny is that the letter is truly timeless. I can think of many departed TORCers that might have profitted from this letter, and many more that I wish <i>would</i> use it!<img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-devil.gif"border=0>

<BR>...Star, it's just a little satire...may I remind you:<BR><BR> <i>Date Posted: Jul/07/2002 12:49 AM(By yourself!!!)<BR> <BR> <BR> <BR>I think the humour most of us found in it, is most of us have either written or contemplated writing such a letter and this parody has reminded us of the stupidity of ever believing we can break this thing we call 'a torc addiction'.<BR><BR>To anyone who feels hurt by my laughter at it, I am sorry, but I am laughing at myself here. And the only offence I would take is if any one poster was given just cause to feel it was directed at them personally. <BR><BR>
