Thumbs up YOU ARE CORDIALLY INVITED...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO THE BARROW-DOWNS!

On May 1, 2003, the forums at the Barrow-Downs will reach the ripe old age of THREE! While the site itself is a bit older, the third anniversary of the opening of the forums is a cause to CELEBRATE!!!!! Therefore, we will have a PARTY in celebration of the third birthday (uh, death day?) of the Barrow-Downs forums and all members are invited!!!!!

This year’s party will include the presentation of the first Barrow-Downs Awards, known far and wide as the Downies. The celebration will begin with a red carpet entrance before guests enter the Grand Hall where the ceremonies will take place. Come in costume and in character assuming the proper flourishes and airs of the Barrow-Downs elite and don’t forget to strike a pose before the paparazzi; this may be your 15 minutes of fame. But remember, there may never again be so many Administrators, Moderators and Assistants assembled in one place at the same time again, so while the party will be fun and funny, don’t forget to maintain some slight sense of decorum.

PLACE: The Grand Hall of Minas Anor (the Gondor RPG forum in a thread to be opened there).

TIME: Thursday, May 1, 2003 beginning at 9:00am EDT until????

DRESS: Formal Middle Earth Wear.

There will be an open bar, and meals will served by our polite wait staff.

COME CELEBRATE THE ACHIEVEMENTS OF THE BARROW-WIGHT AND THE BARROW-DOWNS!

RSVP

I would of course never miss a grand event such as this, so I will definitely be there [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

Note: It kind of shocked me when I came on to the B-D's and I saw the same topic posted in every forum, I did not really know what do do or what was happening, but this is really cool [img]smilies/cool.gif[/img]

Yes, when I first saw the same topic in every forum I thought something was wrong. But this is a good attention-grabber!

* I've already RSVPed. Wouldn't miss it for the world!

I will be on hand.

I will also try valiantly to remain as on hand as possible throughout playing world traveller this summer.

If anyone wants to send me money for internet cafes, they are welcome to do so at their earliest convenience.

Otherwise, I can hardly wait.

Eastern Daylight Time. And for those concerned about time differences, last year's party lasted "several" weeks.

Aw, nuts! Whose bright idea was it to open the forum early in May? The anniversary would be during finals every year! I ask you!

But finals or no, I will be there! After watching what happened last year, I wouldn't miss it for the world - or, at least, for calculus. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

I comtemplated writing an impolite variation on "Thank you, I most certainly shall attend", but then my better judgement thwocked me over the head with a flambé trout, and I decided on a more orthodox répondez s'il vous plaīt.

I'll wear the family jewels, and you can count the carats as the multifaceted sparkle blinds you. In short, look for me on the morning of the 3rd anniversary, I'll be wearing diamonds to this party!

As it chances, the Barrow Downs Birthday Party is scheduled for precisely the right time! The Castle Maladil RPG that I was in charge of in Gondor being freshly ended, that tale will soon take its place in the fabled archives of Elvenhome. Meanwhile, I see the Party as a great place to meet new adventurers who might be interested in participating in any RPGs that I create in the future.

So of course I'll be there ... fireworks and all. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

Looking forward to the Barrow Downs festivities ...
while fondly looking backward to a certain virtual July picnic in Hobbiton ...
along with even more nostalgic memories of real in-person "ME2" get-togethers of the members of the Middle Earth computer bbs in days of old (also known as the late 1980's),

Last year's birthday party was my first ever RPG. Now I look at my posts in there and think, "Who was this fool? She couldn't write worth a hill of beans!" It's amazing what this place has done for my writing.

Question

Well, I wasn't at the BD B-day party last year, but I was looking over the thread last night. I think everyone has improved their writing skills (not exactly sure how to word that)! I was reading one of Piosenniel's posts and I remember thinking, 'Pio? Was that you? Did you really type that?! Naw... it couldn't be...'

Ah, yes, even the Valar will show up for the party this year. I will be well behaved, of course *ahem*

I was skimming over the party thread from last year too, and yes, there is hope for us all [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

Awyrgan will be there, probably slightly intoxicated and grumpy as ever.
