well, what do you know...

i'm not the only pervy hobbit fancier around. hold me. i'm frightened. as i've said before, about a thousand times, if you're ever into something and you look it up on the web, you'll probably realize that someone else is far, far more into whatever it is than you are and you don't have to worry about the depth of your own obsession. all that said, cheers to dedicated fans who provide me with MORE than enough information about my interest-of-the-week to satisfy me.

so the book club went well once again. we had a great turnout, i was really pleased. some liked the book and some didn't, and i thought the discussion was thought-provoking, which is really all i ask of it. i wish i had finished the book but i'm also kind of glad i haven't read the apparently frightening automaton scene. it's kind of strange, but the author doesn't even sell the book on his site. i hope to get around to reading the blood countess soon though. our next book will be the motorcycle diaries. i'm looking forward to it.

once again i'm at work and being disappointed by events here. i plan to write the new boss guy an email about what he told me that seemed kind of false. i really don't like to just gripe about something to my peers and not tell my superiors basically exactly how i feel about it. i also had a brilliant tattoo-related brainstorm on the way in.

remember what it was like when there was napster? sigh.

Re: Emails
I thought you always taught me that honesty is the best policy?

Wait. You never taught me that at all. ;) I came to that conclusion on my own.

Re: Emails
Honesty is the best policy. Diplomacy and tact, however, are pretty important as well.

Re: Emails
I did teach you honesty is the best policy. I also triede to convey the idea that honesty had its own results....

Re: Emails
Well in this case it turned out to be a fine idea to be honest... I still have my job for now, anyways. :) The boss took everything I said well.

Oh, and our friend Latinate is probably the most, uh, prominent "pervy hobbit fancier" in town, actually.

If loving hobbits is wrong, I don't wanna be right!

I don't think I know anyone who is, strictly speaking, "right".

This awesome Sam Gamgee wallpaper I have here on my desktop, however, is so very right.

I meant it in a gentle manner.
I am scared to go to a single link that you posted up there.

Hey, maybe I should go dig up my Boromir wallpaper...

It's rainin' tatts!
A tattoo brainstorm? How exciting! It's your turn to spill details now (it doesn't involve pervy hobbit stuff does it? ;)!

Also, Document=good shit. Although whenever I hear Exhuming McCarthy it gets stuck in my head for about three weeks, thus proving that it is possible for a song to be *too* catchy.

Re: It's rainin' tatts!
No! No pervy hobbit fancying tattoos for me. Although I was browsing tattoo magazines in the bookstore today, and I want to know: what possesses someone to get a tattoo of two snowmen fucking? What??

Anyways, I have this sort of military-insignia twist on my original idea that I want to sketch out a few times and consider... it's a double stripe across the arm, interrupted by a circular abstract phoenix around which is the venus symbol. And then in between the stripes on either side it will bear a logo that helped me get through the hardest time in my life, which was "only you can make yourself happy". I don't know whether I can find a really cool font or not, but I plan to do some looking. I don't know if I trust anyone to translate it into some other cooler-looking language for me.

Then I was thinking... what if I got a carrion crow for the other side? I have some reasons but I have to flesh them out before I decide it's a good idea.

I really, really wish I could draw at all, but I have no ability to make things in proportion, it's some kind of brain damage.

You're definitely not the only one; there are plenty of others out there, including a number of the Hollins chicks that started hanging around with the Tcon crowd over the past year. And as my wise roommate Tim says, "There's a website for everything."

Now, if you start being a Gollum fancier, then I will worry. :D
Aug. 27th, 2002 10:52 pm (UTC)
I will give fifty cents to the person who finds Gollum slash fic.

I will give ALOT MORE to the person who finds the person who wrote it and makes them go away.

For any law enforcement officials doing google searches on making people go away, I'm kidding. It's a joke. Ha. Ha.

Actually, I thought that Rosie Cotton (the hobbit Sam dances with at Bilbo's party) was pretty cute. They did a good job of making life in Hobbiton look idyllic... luckily, I can just remind myself that there are no T1 lines anywhere near. Maybe at Orthanc.
Aug. 27th, 2002 10:50 pm (UTC)
I can't believe I'm going to say this.

Orthanc had wireless.

Shoot me.

I can't believe it took me a minute to get that! ROTFLMAO... now I'm going to e-mail Rain's co-worker who is as hardcore LotR as I am and use that one on her.
