Well, I suppose "in the darkness bind them" is not entirely inappropriate. :D

Exactly! :)

Though if they didn't want to doom their marriage from the start, they could have gone with "forever bind us." Or "and through Netflix bind us."

Ouch! I wish he didn't have to. Surely there are other Tolkien/PJ fans looking for a rental.

That's painful to see. Such a beautifully done map, too. :(

To whom does that awesome bit of wall art belong? Can't it be left? Too late to ask that question, I guess, seeing the paint roller is at the ready.

Pardon my typos - tiny phone keyboard probs.

I found it on failblog.

Speaking of failblog, does anyone have an account with them? I received a notice in the mail that is definitely worth sharing. :D

I get the Arwen and Aragorn thing. Freddy got me the Evenstar pendant, and I thought it was very romantic. But I wouldn't want the One Ring to represent anything that should be good and not evil. :scratch:

I detect a bit of irony here. :)
