I'm not sure what I'm supposed to write for my very first post ever but Shane told me that it doesn't matter. He's the one who told me I could talk to my friends here after I said I wished there was a way to do that not involving email. I don't mind email so much but I know that Will does so many things here with his friends I thought it would be fun to take part. Not that I'm trying to be like my son or anything. He knows that. I hope.

Shane helped me with those pictures (oh, he says the correct term is "icons." Excuse me!) by taking some of my photos and putting them in the computer. There's a process. And he's going to help me "friend" people. I've never heard the word friend used as a verb before, as in "I friended someone." Isn't that funny? I suppose it isn't if you're used to all of this, but I find it amusing. I asked Shane if he uses his blogger(?) a lot and he said he doesn't write in it but reads everything. I think I'd like to write in mine as well as find things to read.

I hope that it's all right for me to "friend" those of you I've met before. I'll be at a loss when Shane's not helping me out so I also hope people won't mind me asking questions.

Okay, I am getting ready to send this. Shane says I should preview then send so I can see my mistakes first. But I don't mind making mistakes as long as it's not some terrible rule I'm breaking.

And what in the world is a community? I know what they are in the outside world but they sound more like clubs to me here. Is that right? I have a lot to learn.

Good to see you sweetheart.

OOC: OH NO Snake has created a monster LMAO!

[identity profile] 2008-12-27 11:49 pm (UTC)(link)
Hello! Thank you for your last letter, dear. Those measurements are going to come in handy.

ooc: LOL! Will is mortified.

[identity profile] 2008-12-28 02:55 pm (UTC)(link)
Really think for Bria though you should wait and send her a receiving blanket.

OOC: LOL! I say payback for that canon.

[identity profile] 2008-12-28 05:39 pm (UTC)(link)
That's an excellent idea!


[identity profile] 2008-12-28 06:12 pm (UTC)(link)
Can't tell you what we're having though. We like the surprise.

A baby is one of the last true surprises left in life! I can do spring colors.

I am most honored that you would 'friend' my journal, my lady. And allow me to be the first to bid you welcome.

[identity profile] 2008-12-27 11:51 pm (UTC)(link)
Thank you so much, dear. I'm glad you don't mind.

Will told me what a help you were to him recently and I have to thank you for that as well.

[identity profile] 2008-12-28 12:27 am (UTC)(link)
Thanks are never needed between friends, Lady Inez. It was my honor to fulfill in some small way the oaths I have made to my friends.

I hope you had a joyful...Christmas, I believe it is called.

[identity profile] 2008-12-28 05:37 pm (UTC)(link)
You are so sweet! I understad why my son's so fond of you. No one's ever called me Lady before.

Yes, that's what it's called, and it was absolutely lovely! I invited a bunch of my friends over to join me and Shane and we exchanged gifts and I made them a big dinner. Will stopped by with more gifts and spent a little time with me. He showed me the necklace you gave him. Did you really make that?

[identity profile] 2008-12-29 03:59 am (UTC)(link)
I have a small talent for jewelry making, but nothing such as my father, Thranduil, possesses.

Among my kin the celebration is called Yule or Mid-Winter Feast. Such gifts are commonly given then, something small and made by the giver with thought to how it may be useful to the recipient.

[identity profile] 2008-12-29 04:40 am (UTC)(link)
That is such a thoughtful tradition. I wish we could focus on gifts that are made. It seems so much more loving and personal.

Nothing wrong with being like your son. He's a top quality guy.

[identity profile] 2008-12-28 05:27 pm (UTC)(link)
You are so sweet! Thank you. I'm very proud of him.

[identity profile] 2008-12-29 02:23 am (UTC)(link)
Communities are something like clubs, yeah. Basically it's a place for people with similar interests to talk/write about said interests. More or less anyway.

Hi, I'm Wes. I'm not sure we've met before though. If we have you'll need to forgive me. Things have been rather complicated this past year and I might have forgotten.

[identity profile] 2008-12-29 03:28 am (UTC)(link)
Thank you. That sounds simple enough. It's just there are so many of them to choose from!

You and your lovely husband came over for Thanksgiving one year. I believe it was the first one that Will and Orlando celebrated together.

I know about what happened to you this year but Will told me not to talk about it to anyone. I don't think he'd mean I can't talk to you, would he?

[identity profile] 2008-12-29 04:20 am (UTC)(link)
Yeah, the picking and choosing thing can be a pain. I tend to friend some of them for a while, then pick the ones I like best from there and join then.

Oh yeah, I remember now. Seems like forever ago.

I don't think so.

[identity profile] 2008-12-29 04:44 am (UTC)(link)
It feels like forever for me, too. So much has happened in such a short time it seems.

It must have been awful to have to fake your own death like that. But Will said you're safe now because they caught the people who were after you.

ooc: Will couldn't tell her the whole truth about Wes's return :\

[identity profile] 2008-12-29 04:57 am (UTC)(link)
Time has a way of slipping away from us all, I think.

Yeah, ummm, sometimes you just have to do what you have to do I guess.

ooc: Heh. Given how hard it's been for them to tell people they now well, I can't imagine someone else having to explain it!

[identity profile] 2008-12-31 06:25 pm (UTC)(link)
That's the truth. I'm happy that you're all right. Will told me that Aidan is still in hiding but I'm sure you'll be reunited soon.

Welcome, it's good to see you here.

[identity profile] 2008-12-31 10:35 pm (UTC)(link)
Aren't you sweet to say that? Thank you very much, dear.

[identity profile] 2009-01-04 03:20 am (UTC)(link)
How have you been? Have the holidays been good to you?

[identity profile] 2009-01-06 03:05 am (UTC)(link)
I'm doing wonderfully! The holidays were joyous and I got to bring in the new year with my beau, as Will calls him. How are you and how were your holidays?

[identity profile] 2009-01-06 03:58 am (UTC)(link)
Excellent and good to hear. Mine were quiet, which is good. I'm not really a holiday kind of guy.
