Lij - so beautiful even at 13.
Went to CM5 - BECAUSE MY HUSBAND WANTED TO GO!! And that's the truth. I actually set off with quite a heavy heart, knowing that Elijah would not be there. But I'm glad we went, I really enjoyed it. Within minutes on the Sat. morning I'd spent a fortune on various LOTR books etc. We saw 'Fellowship' again on the big screen, preceded by a talk by some of the actors - Craig Parker, Harry Sinclair, Lawrence Makaore, Sala Baker and Jed Brophy (think that's his name). They were quite a laugh. On the Sunday I went to the stall where they were selling these prints which had some sort of special effect applied to them, can't really describe it, but the one of Elijah was gorgeous. Anyway, I had to order it to be posted to me - obviously anything that utterly gorgeous was going to be sold out - but after I'd given the girl my name & address and I was walking away I suddenly realised who she was - the rather attractive young lady who was Lij's assistant throughout CM4. I just had to go back to have a chat with her. She said they'd been in negotiations with Lij but in the end he just wasn't able to make it because of the filming schedule. When I asked what he was like to work with her reaction was instantaneous "An absolute angel". She continued at length about how delightful he is. And that was under very trying circumstances, three days of constant signing with the sun blazing down on him. Bless him. I hope he still has lots of Happy Bursts. To quote 13yr old Elijah "I just love Happy Bursts - short bursts of joy - like when you all of a sudden remember that tomorrow starts the weekend". Know just what you mean Lij.
