Ellen is never late. Nor is she early. She arrives precisely when she means to. The least punctual of the trek leaders, Ellen will likely show up halfway through the trip and attack the open bar with an aggression unseen since the Uruk-hai assault on Helms Deep. This Cleveland native is the resident Lord of the Rings expert who inexplicably has the complete wrong answer to K, F, M between Legolas, Aragorn, and Gimli (use your imagination). Although she is undoubtedly the crazy aunt among the leaders, she can still exercise constraint by lighting the Beacons of Amon Din at the first sign of trouble. Not unlike Sauron’s Ring of Power, once you let Ann Arbor’s most beloved Demi-Moore lookalike in your life you won’t want to let her go…until it’s time to cast her into the fires of Mount Doom. Moonlight drowns out all but the brightest stars and Ellen shines brightest of them all.
