Well, I decided to come out of lurkingness. THis group looks pretty cool, and I really want to participate. I LOVE lotr *well, der* and my favorite characters are Merry and Eowyn. I am offically a pervy hobbit fancier and a horrible Merry groupie. I work full time at Wal-Mart and am in the production of "the Wizard of Oz" at the Goodman theater in Chicago, so I don't have alot of time right now on my hands, but my new years resolution is to stop being a lurker and actually join in some fun conversations!
