I'm with all you secretive people. My age is not leaking out, but I'll say that I'm between 12 and 37, which seem to be the brackets [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

Well, I'll be 16 in some months, but I have problems acting my age. Here in Norway we have a word for it called 'veslevoksen', loosely translated it means 'stupid little kid who tries to be grown up'. [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img]

lindil, I believe our Barrow-downs Pension Trust is funded by advance purchases of the 'Revised Silmarillion,' and invested heavily in... uh-oh.

Alkanoonian! I keep learning more about you and it's ruining my image of you being a big kangaroo that has magical powers (blame your old avatar for that one [img]smilies/tongue.gif[/img] ).

Now, as for my age.... Well, I've posted it around the forum a lot, so if you really want to know (and I know you don't), stop being lazy and go do some research!

I am from the first generation of Tolkien lovers in the U.S., the college students with flowers in our hair, who fell in love with the book in the late 60s. As such, I am the senior statesman here. Let's just say I qualify along with Frodo and Bilbo and those hobbits who ran off on adventures at the magic age of 50.

Pension fund? Yes, that would be nice. But why can't I retire to Rivendell the way Master Bilbo did?

Thirty-one although ever since I was a small child I found birthdays rather depressing so I stopped celebrating them when I was twenty-five.

Well, well, well. I have to say I found those guesses on my age quite interesting.

I begin to wonder if I should actually give away my age (for those who do not know yet). Well, here's a hint: I was born on June 28 somewhere between 1980 and 1990. Though I don't think that hint will be very helpful.
