Tweaking

Caelai sai o ai eis talaer Cosostae
Sor air ei vyr ail si Aelor Jhalendri
ailosaer shia si Jhys os Si Vol


Hello to you all my name is Kirima
This post is written in elvish
Inspired by the Lord of Rings



I have just finished tweaking my template to suit my favorite theme which is inspired by The Lord of the Rings Trilogy which counts as my favorite movie. (I actually own the Extended Edition 12 disk Boxset) I thought of frustating all my readers by doing the entire post in Elvish or even worse in Tengwar the Elven script used by Tolkien in his books but mercifully I do not have the patience of painstakingly translating them word by word nor am I that Evil.
After a hard evenings work I must now retire to my quiet peaceful home for 'dinner' then 'supper' (not as peaceful as the Shire)


"One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them
One Ring to bring them all, and in the darkness bind them"

Nice diggs fellow hobbit. Ohh the precious! I want it! hhehehehe!

A fellow Lord Of The Rings fan! Ah, now we talking! You don't know how big of a fan I am. Some call it crazy. I've read almost all the Middle Earth books that talk in depth about Tolkien's endeavour in creating this fascinating world. If you haven't done so yet, you can read The Silmarillion. That is a dense summary of much of what the Middle Earth books expound on.

As for the extended edition boxset, I too have them all, as well as all the sound tracks. My next purchase is the extended CDs of each of the extended edition movies. Dude, you've just made me a very excited guy! There's something I should probably share that'll show I have gone over the edge as concerns all things Tolkien, but for reasons of self-respectability, I'll leave that as a mysterious fact about myself (If you really want to know, see me sideways).

I leave with my favourite poem from the book:

All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken;
The crownless again shall be king.

Nice tweak. Loved the Lord of the Rings lakini not with as much fervour as kina egm!! Only soccer drives me that mad :)

Kirima said...

@farmgal, I surely enjoyed
@Aegeus, The precious is mine, nasty hobbits wants to takes it from mee!! :-) Thanks methu.
@egm, Good to see a true fan who is as enthralled with middle earth and all the strange and wonderful goings on of the LOTR. I havent yet read the Silmarillion yet but I'll keep an eye out for it. Peeps here at home thought I was weird for investing in a box set of such a 'weird' movie but I am glad that those I have shared with are also trully enchanted.
@Bantutu, Glad you like it I just googled blogger templates + Hobbit and found it.
@Betty Thanks, I also zubbed in wonder and astonishment.
@Unyc, Thanks too, well we cant all be big fans but at least you like
@Mwangi, Thanks soccer I also love although I want to forget last week as fast as possible.
