hi,

i'm new to the site. here's a quick intro:

How did you first come across Tolkien? I first read the hobbit when i was in third grade. i tried reading the lord of the rings right after that, but found it was too boring. i tried again two years later, and i've been hooked ever since. there was a time when i read the hobbit once a year. i haven't read it in a while, but i still consider it my favorite book.

What do you think of the movies? i can't stand the movies. i honestly find a hard time understanding why people who are fans of the book like them. i don't think the capture what's great about the books at all, nor do i think they are decent movies in and of themselves. i'd rather watch the star wars prequels. but to each his own.

How did you pick your username? Does it have any meaning? i use it everywhere.

How did you find Forumshire? Search engine, referral, or something else entirely? i found that someone had linked to my liveblogging of my lotr rewatch and here i am.

You look a lot like Alice's Father. You appear about the right size. Drink from the bottle labelled, "Slightly biggger but only if U want to." If so, you definitely fit. Welcome! cyclops

You know what would be a good mashup? Alice's adventures in middle earth!

Welcome to Forumshire, gooddoctor. Smile I recall reading your posts about LOTR and TH when they were linked to from here. I suspect you will find many people who sympathize with you here. Laughing

As if that could ever happen...   Very Happy I mean --- what would you have.... Amarie disappearing down a big hole (that is, a hole large enough for one of our older girls to fit inside)--- a hobbit hole, even?  Rolling Eyes As if.... Ridiculous! Silly! Nonsense!  What a Face

We certainly could use a good doctor around here. Hello and welcome! I am the sane one, the voices told me so.  Wave
