Festival in the Shire  
Anyone else attending the Festival in the Shire in Wales in August?

I'm looking to room with someone to save on expenses.

I am! Do you by chance need a roommate to cut down on hotel costs? I'm still looking to go halve-sies with someone.

I'm presenting a paper on the Saturday at the academic conference. :D

ooh wow that's awesome! What is your paper about?
Where are you thinking of staying? in Aberyswith? (probably wrong spelling) i think that town is 15 miles away from the Festival though.
Can i know where in the world are you from?

My paper is on the dualities of industry and nature through a Zen Buddhist reading of the text. (Sounds odd, I know.)

I haven't booked a room yet. I'm still working out the details. I am planning to fly from Baltimore, MD (BWI) to London on the 11th and then take a train over into Wales. I was hoping to book a room in the town (P...whatever it is), but was also hoping to room with someone to save on costs. I'm planning to stay in Wales on Friday night, Saturday night, and Sunday night.

Where are you flying from?

I'm coming from NY to go to Birmingham on Aug 12th. i'm in the process of booking but not sure where yet.
Your paper sounds interesting-- are you applying it to Tolkien's work?

If you need a roommate to keep down the cost of the hotel, please do consider me (I know, I know...internet strangers and all). This trip is already breaking the bank for me! bah.

Are you from NY? My fiance's sister lives in Brooklyn. :D

Yup, my paper is a textual analysis of the LotR, minus other Tolkien works. I make mention of some smaller texts (Leaf by Niggle, ex.) but focus primarily on figures such as Tom Bombadil, the Ents, and Saruman.

Hi again. Are you still looking for a roommate for the conference? You can e-mail me at: sarah.sprouse@gmail.com

And if not, that's fine too. Perhaps I'll see you there. :D

If you're still interested, perhaps we could share a room at the George Borrow Hotel in Aberystwyth? It's 205 pounds for 3 nights for a double, 120 for 3 nights for a single.
