Menelvagor Valar: I got no clue, just got back into lotro after one of my usual long absences :-)
well, I'll leave Arien in charge of LotRO now, I'm sure she has some
things to report and I don't know anything about the game ;-)
AriehnV: i think that its for players who stopped their account for a while they can play for free until now
AriehnV: err until tomorrow it is
AriehnV: from my Loro side there is not much news from me apart from that my Burglar got 34 and has her first basic starter pony :-) , she is proud owner
of Barley now
AriehnV: he is a bit of a toodly one but quite nice :-)
AriehnV: the wee bit faster version costs 4 g and u need lvl 35 for that
AriehnV: The Valar guild i am sure did some common raiding and questing as usual but i was not part of it
AriehnV: oh yes and i tried out some skirmish tutorial and got through the first part all right
AriehnV: that is a new thing with the expansion patch
AriehnV: so i ll find out more about that in time
ArPharazonV: :-) I'm sure you've got lots of time to figure it out
AriehnV: and what is your character called again Menelvagor?
AriehnV: he seems to be afk or fallen asleep or someone called on the telephone L)
ArPharazonV: well, any other gaming news then?
ArPharazonV: Anyone got a Tolkien
ArPharazonV: or a Tolkien-moment, as Arien suggests to me in sidechat?
ArPharazonV: Arien, do you have one in mind?
AriehnV: *grabs a copy of Tom Bombadil*
AriehnV: the book is upstairs i fear ^^
ArPharazonV: I have not read the book myself, but if you want you can grab a few lines out of it and we can look at them :-)
AriehnV: ah well i just fell on * The Man in the Moon
AriehnV: we remember where it turned up in Lord of the Rings ? :-)
ArPharazonV: ahh yes, in the Inn of the Prancing Pony
ArPharazonV: and the cow jumped over the moon!
AriehnV: indeed :-D
AriehnV: i ll give you that verse
ArPharazonV: the cow, the dog, the cat playing the fiddle
ArPharazonV: and the beer so brown that the man in the moon himself came down one night to drink his fill
AriehnV: "With a ping and a pong the fiddle/-strings broke!
AriehnV: the cow jumped over the Moon
AriehnV: and the little dog laughed to see such fun
AriehnV: And the Saturday dish went off at a run
AriehnV: with the Silver Sunday spoon
AriehnV: The round Moon rolled behind the hill, as the Sun raised up her head
ArPharazonV: hmm, can't trust the cutlery....
AriehnV: She hardly believed her fiery eyes,
AriehnV: for though it was day , to her surprise
AriehnV: they all went back to bed !
ArPharazonV: they all went back to bed!
ArPharazonV: Allright, with that we'll continue into aftermeeting
*bangs gavel cautiously*
AriehnV: Thank you Ar Pharazon for chairing the Meeting tonight
AriehnV: :-) you did a nice job i think
Menelvagor Valar: You sure did.
ArPharazonV: Thank you! I wasn't able to share a lot of news tonight as much as Varda or Eonwe would, but I did my best.
Menelvagor Valar: and can't blame anyone with this very nice yet atrocious weather!
AriehnV: whats the weather like in Netherlands?
Menelvagor Valar: I wouldn't have done it better myself Pharzie.
Menelvagor Valar: snow, snow, snow and more snow.
I hope my 15 minutes of fame are now over and next week I can sit back
and enjoy as those more used to the task take over once more :-)
ArPharazonV: yep, snow
Menelvagor Valar: forecasts actually state we'll be having a white christmas.
ArPharazonV: my parents made a snowman in the afternoon while we were working on the pc-upgrade
ArPharazonV: all public transportation stopped because of the weather
Menelvagor Valar: as it will continue to snow up until christmas eve (not continuously though).
AriehnV: hehe :-) nice
AriehnV: we had about 3 inches of snow yesterday
AriehnV: or a bit less
AriehnV: which is enough for Portree ;-)
AriehnV: its not a mountain village
AriehnV: but it was raining into it when i left work at seven o clock your time
I think we had something around that amount here too, locally (well, in
the backyard and on the street, anyway, I didn't go much further)
AriehnV: i just hope that slosh wont freeze over or it will be baad on the roads tomorrow
Menelvagor Valar: hehe.
Menelvagor Valar: I think there's at least 5-6 inches of snow on my balcony.
remember last year we had weekends when or at least one when the police
had really a lot to do with over 20 accidents in the region
AriehnV: cars going off the road
Menelvagor Valar: yeah, looks like we're heading into an ice age :-)
Menelvagor Valar: global warming my arse :-D
ArPharazonV: pch, we had the warmest november in ages
Menelvagor Valar: it's getting colder and colder each winter!
Menelvagor Valar: and with -7 straight out on winter's doorstep.
AriehnV: not really that smooth of a seasn change anymore :-\ we go from one extreme into the other
Menelvagor Valar: in centigrades of course, not fahrenheit.
ArPharazonV: I'm glad we've been having this snow, though the extremes are worrying, as Arien said
Menelvagor Valar: for our american buddies who might be reading this at a later time :-)
ArPharazonV: I'm not sure we'll see many winters like this anymore in our lifetime
Menelvagor Valar: aye.
AriehnV: indeed i think you can save it and send if for them to read#
ArPharazonV: Of course, I will be saving the transcript and sending it to Varda.
Menelvagor Valar: especially if we spend every next winter of our life on gran canaria, ibiza or in australia!
AriehnV: ah well if the water in the stoor fall jumps back up the 40 feet cliff maybe
AriehnV: Stor fall
AriehnV: i mean :-) hang on i ll get you a picture and you ll see :-)
AriehnV: Namarie for now and good night :-) see you next week
AriehnV has left the room.
fladrifv has left the room.
VardaValar1 has entered the room.
VardaValar1: Aiya :-)
ArPharazonV: you're about.... 40 minutes too late ;-)
VardaValar1: Well, hi anyway! :-)
ArPharazonV: Aiya :-)
ArPharazonV: I hadn't saved and sent yet, so you're still here ;-)
VardaValar1: Yay! Nick of time!
ArPharazonV: how was the Christmas festivity?
karakedi25: back, but I see things are over
VardaValar1: Much fun. Movie: Avatar. Many presents. Three pizzas.
VardaValar1: Great company. :-)
ArPharazonV: oh, Avatar, I'd heard from that, supposed to dethrone lotr as top-movie ;-)
ArPharazonV: *of that
VardaValar1: Not with me, although I enjoyed it a lot.
VardaValar1: Top box-office you mean?
ArPharazonV: most expensive movie ever I think, 500 million?
VardaValar1: It was a new technology for 3-D, so it should be high-priced.
ArPharazonV: well, in Christmas viewings I believe, and in Oscars, and stuff like that
VardaValar1: But the tickets are very high too, and the glasses were 3 bucks a pop.
VardaValar1: There were 6 of us, so we felt it. heh
VardaValar1: It's not something we can run back and watch seven times, because of the expense.
ArPharazonV: you don't get to keep the glasses? ;-)
VardaValar1: You can and we did, but they ask you to recycle them in buckets at the door as you leave.
VardaValar1: I still have mine.
ArPharazonV: then you can use it to watch it again 6 times!
VardaValar1: The ticket is also high.
ArPharazonV: anyway, saving transcript
VardaValar1: Namarie for now. :-)
ArPharazonV: namarie, have fun in WoW :-)
