:: Emily sent in her Elijah encounter when she met him last June.. Check out the pic she got and her encounter:
My name is Emily and I had an Elijah encounter in NYC this past June. I was with a large group of friends when he passed us on the street. I was like, whoa was that????? We ran up to him at a street corner while he was trying to catch a cab. At first I was scared to tap him. I was like "Um, Elijah?" and he turns around eating this huge cookie. "Oh, hold on" he says, and turns around, cramming it into his mouth. I asked if we could have a picture and he very politely said sure, even though it was obvious he was in a hurry. I jumped right in next to him, handed someone a camera and there it was! As I was walking away, it occurred to me that I didn't even get an autograph! I ran back and grabbed the trip itinerary out of my purse. It was the only thing I had on hand. I asked him quickly if I can have an autograph. He again obliged, and asked me my name. "Emily" I said, shaking with excitement! He asked me where I was from. "Houston," I blurted. "Shit! Houston! There you go." I thanked him and ran away in total happiness. "We just met Frodo!" was all we could talk about as we rode the elevator up the Empire State Building. The autograph read "Emily, much love, Elijah Wood" :):)

:: Ok, well everyone has been complaining about the site being down on and off for a while now ... here is your chance to help. Jochen Weber owns ejwsites.net and currently hosts A+F along with other great Elijah sites such as EWFN and Geeked. You may not know this but it costs him *a lot* of money to maintain the server so that you guys can view our sites and get up to date Elijah information. Jochen has decided to set up a Paypal account so that anyone who wishes to contribute to the maintenance of the site financially can do so with ease. You are in no way required to, so please don't feel pressured to, but if you do i can assure you that 100% of the funds will go to funding ejwsites.net and will not go to any of us personally. For more info or to donate some money, go here. As always, thanks for your continued support.
