Thank you for the birthday wishes everyone! I had a lovely birthday, watched all three LOTR EE movies over the weekend and finished with the last hour or so of ROTK tonight, and am looking forward to a nice dinner with my quarantine-approved bubble of family and baking an experimental birthday cake on Thursday. It's a spicy chocolate cake with peppers in it, but it's my birthday so I get to pick whatever I want to make and inflict it on everyone. :grin:

Oh dear, sorry @Narv - although I think this is still okay.

Sounds like a lovely way to spend the day, @Menolly - excited to hear how the cake goes today! :grin:

In some parts of the world it is traditional to congratulate the day after ... I'm from there!

Happy birthday, Menolly!

Oops, I missed this thread! A belated thank you to everyone. It's wonderful to get Plaza birthday wishes again. :grouphug: I was mostly working, but there was cheesecake, so I can't complain.

(Pssst @Nia, thanks for adding me :smooch: but mine's actually the 22nd. I'm pretty close to the date line, it confuses things.)

@Nia I know I am awesome and totally deserve 2 birthdays, but perhaps we should narrow it down to one so that the rabble don't get all jealous and rebel. I know.. the things you have to suffer.. tsk

My laptop is trying so hard to curry favour with the admins, bless it. But it won't work. Lantaelen has once again been given the privilege of having a birthday at the expense of your second one, Windy. And Aerlinn your time-zone correct birthday is also there. :thumbs: :thumbs:

Thanks all for the well wishes on the birth of our little one! It's been a whirlwind of a month but she's settling in nicely and I might be starting to catch my breath a little. :D

Looking forward to catching up on all the latest chat, too!

Greatly pleased to hear things are progressing well @MistressofJesters ! I sympathize with the feeling of whirling--my littlest is nearing two months and I keep thinking "Two months already? It feels like we left the hospital last week!" Time is a funny thing.

On a separate note, was your rank always listed like that Windy?

@Nia if you happen to get a chance, my RL birthday is April 22. My New Plazaversary is June 08, 2020. Don't remember my old Plaza date.

@Androthelm if you know where even one of your posts are in the archive, you can go look at the thread and (just like new plaza) it should have your join date listed above your post next to your total points and posts. Unless you were like pre-2005 but as I recall you were much later than that.

I was @KingODuckingham much later, but I don't know that I posted much. In fact, the only threads I can say for sure for sure that I was involved in were the Prancing Pony and... I want to say there was a thread about a group travelling through Mirkwood in Rhovanion after the regions swap happened. Still, I'll check.

@Androthelm couldn't take the suspense, went looking for you, and sure enough, I found you in The Prancing Pony II here:

https://web.archive.org/web/20150322125 ... y-II/page2

Unfortunately I was apparently a bit wrong, later plaza didn't keep track of exact join days? :shrug: Just the month and year, which it lists as January 2012.

Oh dear. Still! January 2012 is good, although I will let y'all in on a secret that I had an account before that, asked an embarrassing question in Lore, and made a new one to cover up my shame. Middle school on the internet is a strange time.

No :P It apparently came about when Elenhir and Sil were talking about how Elenhir was defending that Ancalagon was the "greatest" dragon on a reddit site (I think) :P And woooah! 2 months already!??

It's so true though, I always wished for another story sort of like the plot of the Hobbit mixed with the epic tone of LotR that involved taking on Ancalagon the Black, such a cool dragon.

Yep, two month mark was Sunday. :googly:

:hammer: (Nia & RL - which can be interpretted either way! :grin: )

@Androthelm - apologies for the huge delay, but you're now in the table! I gave you a middle of the month date in January for your old PV so it's hopefully close-ish to the actual date, whenever it was. Let me know if another date would be preferable though.

Aaaand now I need to do some grovelling for failing in my duties to the following excellent people:

Happy (belated!) Birthday to the wonderful @Eldy Dunami for a week ago today :smooch: - hope you had a delightful day with lots of cake (if that's your thing), and being spoilt by friends and family (in real life, or virtually - or both!) Sorry to have missed the day on here!

And an even more belated Happy 17th Old PV to @Oak ! You can now get your UK plaza provisional driving licence. :thumbs:

Thank you, @Nia and @Tarawen! I had a very low-key birthday IRL, but that was what I wanted, so I was very grateful to family and friends for being accommodating. :smile:

(And a double thank you to Nia for all your work on this thread--no worries about having your own IRL stuff!)

Just dropping in to say a bit of a passing hi to everyone! And to give (very) belated birthday wishes to Nienna and quite belated birthday wishes to Dim.

We're officially now in the weird month of no birthdays (at least according to the visitors to this thread). But I guess that's so we don't get distracted from Halloween. Hope everyone is good and all that jazz :thumbs:

Ahh happy very belated happy bday @Balfur and many apologies for lateness but you have trusted your dates with Ents after all. :smooch:

I do believe we must be coming up on some kind of 6-month New/NarvPlaza anniversary...@Narv ? @anyone who was here early days can confirm?

I think you're right, @Lailyn! It looks like @Eldy Dunami - the first non-admin, non-narvbot member to join - joined on May 13th!

Happy (day early) 6 month-iversary to narvlaza! :conga: :conga: :conga:

Dammit everyone (@Lailyn and @Zôrzimril & @Narv!!) You all beat me to it (have had to edit this post like 5 times already as I realise how far behind the times I really am these days & also because actually I'm just gonna hide my surname otherwise it feels weird and exposing).

I sent myself a reminder email yesterday night just before I went to sleep to my work email and everything to celebrate here:

HAPPY 6 MONTHS @Eldy Dunami (and soon to be everyone else!!)

p.s. thanks again Narv for getting this thing going :thumbs: :thumbs: :thumbs:

Happy 6 months to us all! I know many of us all joined within hours of each other, so I'd say the 13th/14th join dates in this thread's list are more a matter of time zone than anything!

And thank you to @Narv for being willing to transform this from a test project into a place that has given us so much joy during such an unsettling year.

I got very lucky that night since the first time I'd opened Facebook in a few days was just a couple minutes after @Narv posted the link in the FB group, so I was able to jump right in. :grin:
