I'm going to the Shire - and you can, too!

I'm a very happy height-challenged, mushroom-loving Middle-earther, as I've been invited to be a guest scholar at one of the most anticipated international Tolkien events currently in the works, A Long-Expected Party 3. I do hope to see some of you there!


Have you ever looked to the mountains and wondered what lay beyond - or even under them? Have you ever wanted to carry a sword instead of a walking stick? Then perhaps you are in need of an adventure. Take a trip to the Shire and live the adventure of a lifetime and create memories that can be retold around the fire for ages to come.

Find out more about A Long-Expected Party 3 here!

Wonderful news! Congratulations! (I'm watching LotR today -- mainlining all three as comfort. Currently on: Faramir returns to the fray and Pippin sings. Oh, my heart!) (Oh, and 7AM will be released this week! Thanks again for your excellent words.)

Thanks so much!

I absolutely adore how they used Tolkien's verse in that scene. Pippin's voice, the contrast with the martial images... heartbreaking.

My pleasure!

I don't know yet whether we'll be able to come...but if we can, I'll be sure to let you know in advance, and try to connect with you there! :) Would LOVE to meet up with you again at all, but that would be absolutely amazing. :)

Febobe :)

I don't even know what I'm having for dinner tonight. Looks great though.

LOL! I know what you mean. And what's even scarier is that it will be here before we know it. Ack, where does the time go!

Thanks for the kind words. I do think it will be a fantastic event. Lots of fun!

Woo! Great to hear that you are coming :) I'm so glad that Frodo (Daniel) talked you into coming :) We've got our registration in and plan to actually pay it once the very last piece of tax paperwork comes in (been severely delayed which is annoying!). And good thing as Mr. Bilbo says we are down to a mere 29 slots left before maximum attendance. It is a pretty limited amount of 170 party-goers, but then that helps make it a small, tight-knit, and fun group :) Where you actually get to KNOW your fellow party-goers (because it's more than a con, it's a PARTY!)

I'm so excited! It will be fantastic to catch up with you both in person - and party!!! From what you've said about it, it's always sounded like such a remarkable experience. I'm delighted to have the chance to be a part of it. And I really appreciate the two of you recommending me! Thank you. WOOHOO!!!
