  The Chatter Box : Blathering On
A Big, Ecstatic, YESSSS!!! by notquitenglish on 18 December 2003 7:21am
Okay lads and ladies, mostly ladies I guess, I just have to tell you this. I've mentioned before that I'm a writer, insofar as I'm anything in particular, and here is the big news.... today a PUBLISHER( a species rarely seen or heard from) called and asked me to send him my manuscript. He was very nice and extrememly complimentary and so I'll keep you updated and all...
The other thing is I just saw Lord of The Rings 3. Oh my gosh, how incredible. Completely blew me away. And Billy Boyd has a lovely singing voice, doesn't he? (he's got a lovely everything anyway)
So has this been a good day or what?

(grin, grin, grin)

well done!
writers have such a difficult job. it's alot of thinking and thinking and then writing and re-writing...

and I saw LOTR -ROTK too yesterday 17th Dec, the first screening at 5 p.m.
it was good but I was a little disappointed that many bits from the book were excluded; the movie moved quickly. yes Billy Boyd sang well, I like his accent, it's so sweet!

1) Congrats from one writer to another. Good luck!

2) I also saw the last LOTR yesterday. Quite enjoyed it - think it's my favourite of the 3 movies.

3) At the risk of this becoming another attack of the LOTR fans (heheh), I was very excited about the fact that Pippin was focused on more in this movie. Billy Boyd is the greatest - Scottish accents kill me. Mr. Bloom isn't too bad either. ;O)

And, uh, Michael Palin...lessee...what can I say about him? I suppose he's part of my UK obsession. Anything British is of interest - especially Britcoms. Finally saw the Black Adder series the other weekend. Good stuff!
