20 years?!?!?

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.

20 years?!?!?

Postby Durin VIII » Thu Nov 21, 2019 8:38 pm

I missed it by a month, but 20 years ago I read a article on CNN about my favorite books being made into movies. I got very excited because doing 3 movies showed they were serious about it, and the guy they had doing Gandalf was amazing as Richard III in the best theater I had ever seen. The article linked to this website and I created an account to post on the forums.

Granted I never have posted much, but it makes me happy this place still exists.

Not old, just more experienced! Wizened, you might say.

:)

For me it was 17 years ago (disregard the date in my info). So.. in TORC years, I'm almost legal! :rofl:

Maybe? I can't access my main ID anymore (and no amount of emailing admins, mods, or anyone else has managed to fix that). You might have known me as elengil.

Oh that makes me happy Wench! You'll have to tell pull up a chair after the holidays and tell me all about your exploits for the past decade or so..it's been awhile since I was here.

Also I'm on FB (if your there) feel free to friend me Lynai Blodgett Torabpour (and that goes for any Torcer, welcome to be my friend as well)...

LOL I don't think we did, either, but we crossed through some of the same territory (like this forum) :)

The class of 2001 is still a bit shy of 20 years...but it sure feels like 20....amirite?

So many great names return to say hello to Durin. *bows to Gimli* *hugs Wenchy* *remembers Elengil*

I just think on the complete boob of a noob I was back when I started. Back when the owners were still hands on. Back when the fans took over the boards when the first movie came out. Back when the role play forum was the best reading ever. Back when it took two hours just to get through all the posts from Welcome to The One Ring. So many people come and gone and I miss so many that my pea brain has forgotten so many more. I love that we are all here today and now but admit that I do miss the old glory days of the WCA's... Erinhue and his Inn, "It's good luck to buy a bard a drink"..... so much more. *gets misty*

Great to see everyone.
Love is as big or as little as a hug!!

Tooks, I also have an address for him. I say we bombard the Bard with Christmas cards and see if we can lure him back again. :D

Man, I had Hue's address like 15 years ago, I doubt I could even find it again even if it was still right!

Rwhen, I miss those days, too. :cry:

Only a few months late to this thread....

20 years is quite a career and I consider my time with you all a highlight of my online life.

With that said in light of the current situation sweeping across the world....I say a prayer tonight for all of you. Wash your hands, stay in as much as possible and be safe. Maybe use the inside time to up that TORC post count that's been quiet lately .

Heya Drogo!!

Yeah, it is crazy business out in the world today. Been watching this virus since early January and now that it finally has a foothold here, it has a rather surreal feeling to it. We shuttered our TKD schools, I'm still required to work..which is good, since I carry the insurance and can pay the most important bill: mortgage..have my elderly dad (87) living with us, so trying to keep him safe..I started to stock up in January..so we're doing better than some.

Take care..post back and let us/me know how things are looking in your neck of the woods. For us..even in rural MN, we are starting to see COVID cases popping up. ugh.
