Back from a Long Journey

Okay- it's sinking in at last. It's taken decades to view this clearly but at last there is little - ok - no doubt. I am a nerd. I'm 52 years old and I just spent the last week listening to The Lord of the Rings on cd. I've read the books many times and my wife bought me the unabridged set on cd a couple of years ago and I think this makes my 3rd time to listen to it. I'm 52, I smoke pipes and I love the LotR. This is not the vision I had in past years of the man I would or should become, but here it is. I am a nerd. Don't get me wrong. I'm a pretty happy nerd, but a nerd all the same. I feel better now. Confession is good for the soul. Now I think I'll go warm up the dvd player and watch the movies! -T

Your not alone my friend! I'm 36, smoke pipes and love all the books and movies. The Hobbit is also a great book. Supposedly Peter Jackson is making that into two movies.
Anyway, just thought you should know.
