Hello, hello, hello!!!
 
Tis I, the blog authoress.
 
I'm honestly not sure who else would be posting on here, but anywho...
 
It's me:)
 
And I'm so happy to see you all on this beautiful, dark, wet, slushy, icy Wednesday evening!
 
Only I guess I'm not really seeing you, now am I?  Ah, no.
 
Well, on to important stuff, like this week's wallpaper!
 
This evening I am posting all of the LOTR wallpapers that I have designed since last Wednesday. 
 
I'll probably do one last LOTR Wallpaper Wednesday next week, and then it will be back to our regularly schedule program.
 
See, I told you my "obsession" wouldn't last forever:)
 
First, we have...Strider!

Ok, just gotta say here - I love the Strider side of Aragorn's character.  He's got a hooded cape, a long stemmed pipe, and fingerless gloves, not to mention a big sword.  Definitely cool.  Aragorn in Bree is pretty much awesome.
 
And he's even more awesome in the books!  I'm about half way through The Return of the King right now and Sir Percy may have a formidable rival to challenge him as my top literary hero;) 
 
Next, we have...Arwen!

I LOVE Arwen's red and black dress.  I can't wait to see the other movies if only to look at her costumes and then die happy.  I'm pretty much a costume freak:)
 
And now...Aragorn!
 
{full size image located on, guess where?  The Graphic Design page!}
 
Ok, one more thing I just gotta say - when I found out that Viggo Mortensen did all of his own horseback riding and stunts in the movies, I pretty much fainted.  I'm always impressed when an actor or actress does their own riding.  Of course, I haven't seen him ride yet 'cause I've only seen the first movie so far, but I am eagerly awaiting that pleasure I assure you!
 
Oh, and he actually bought the horse that he used in the movie.  That is totally awesome!!
 
BTW, don't worry about me - the guy is already married and old enough to be my father, so I'm really okay here:)
 
And last, but not least...Arwen!  Again;)

Did I mention that I love Arwen's costumes?!  Because I want her gray-ish purple cloak.  I. Love. It.
 
Oh, and I was terribly disappointed when I found out that Liv Tyler (Arwen) did not do her own riding.  No, she had a stunt double, and Liv rode a fake "horse" on the back of a truck for all of the fast scenes.  I was seriously disappointed.  But I'm over it now.
 
Now, I've just realized that although Aragorn and Arwen are my favorite characters, there may be some of you who prefer Frodo, or the other hobbits, or Eowyn, or Legolas, or some other character.
 
So, next week will be devoted to those characters.  I can't promise to do a wallpaper for all of them, so if you have a request, please don't hesitate to speak up!
 
Happy Trails, y'all!
 
P.S. All pictures used in these wallpapers were found at The Council of Elrond, a very cool LOTR site.

As for numbers 1 and 3, but especially number 1... SQUEEEE!!!!
 
You know how I feel about Aragorn/Strider and the part at Bree =D Shameless as a schoolgirl, I am! (You should see the kids when I watch that movie with them. Sarah giggles at me, and Ivan just rolls his eyes.)
 
These are awesome.
 
My official request would be Eowyn. She was my personal favorite (aside from Pippin). I just loved how fierce she was, and yet still elegant and beautiful. I love the part when Aragorn asks what she does fear, and she says "A cage." (Wait - you haven't watched that yet. Can't remember if it's in movie 2 or 3. Anyway, now I just ruined one bit of dialog for you!)

lol.  The first one was for you, Cuz;)
 
I'm about to that stage myself.  Poor Alex has been very patient, listening to me ramble on and on and on about Aragorn;)  I've got to talk to someone about him, and Grandma is a Legolas fan.  What is wrong with her?!;)  I still like his shooting, but Aragorn wins hands down.  I came to that conclusion on my own, btw;) 
 
Tell ya what, next time we see each other we can watch the movie and be shameless together - I don't mind, if you don't=)
 
Ok, I'll do one of Eowyn. 
No, it's ok - I already read that part in the book, so I'm good:)
 
Gotta love Pippin and his accent:) 
"We've had breakfast, but what about 2nd breakfast?" 
"I don't think he knows about 2nd breakfast." 
"But what about lunch, tea, dinner?!  He knows about those, doesn't he?!?!"
"I wouldn't count on it."

STRIDER!!!!!!!!!!! (LOVE!!!)
          So pale and sensitive, beautiful and strong, elegant and brave, fearless and heroic, but she was in love. Arwen was a perfect elf. I hated to see her when she was about to cry. It almost made me cry. I sound so sentimental  and crazy. lol ttyl

There were a lot of parts that almost made me cry - I've become strangly emotional when watching movies.  I don't know what happened... 
You know, you do sound emotional and crazy...but that's ok;D lol.
 
Love you,
~Tasha~

Hey! you weren't supposed to agree with me! jk XD
 
           You know, it's weird! I get all emotional and all sometimes, when watching movies or tv, but sometimes I feel so terrible because I don't feel terrible! Do you know what I mean?....Perfectly sane....{Just keep telling yourself that...}
