Today is the letter ‘H’ in the 2015 Blogging from A to Z Challenge! View more blogs here!
I decided to throw some Geek love out there and give a shout out to the littlest people in Middle Earth. Hobbits.
The Good: Hobbits are (mostly) kind hearted people whose lives celebrate the simple things. Food. Gardening. Smoking a pipe and blowing smoke rings. Parties. It seems like the perfect way to live! In fact, Hobbits eat many meals per day and still stay small! Ok, fairly round, but small. I know that if I ate that many large meals everyday than very soon I would be 300 lbs. I don’t see any Hobbits exercising either. I understand, Hobbits! However, certain families of Hobbits have a sense of adventure
tucked under their golden pocket watch chains that dangle from custom vest pockets. These Hobbits save the world over and over again and it’s amazing and awesome to hear about. Plus they live in adorable Hobbit holes. I want one. Maybe with a little higher ceilings so Luke doesn’t hit his head all of the time.
The Bad: Some Hobbits get greedy and turn into this! Yuck. Golem is nasty and evil, yet you can’t help but pity him. He does have persistence to meet his goals…so that’s good, right? Gross. (Photo from Wikipedia)
The Katy: I love the Hobbit and Lord of the Rings. Yes, they are just walking for FOREVER. But there are epic battles, new friendships, and amazing adventures. I need to try to reread the books. Tolkein was a genius, but his books are hard for me to read. The writing style is like an entire 3 course meal that takes me forever to digest. I’ll get to it! But there are a lot of books on my TBR list that I need to check off before I return to Middle Earth. In the meantime, I can enjoy the movies. Being a LOTR/Hobbit fan is also an awesome way to bond with my mom, who also loves those things! We got to see the most recent Hobbit films in theaters together for some mom/daughter bonding. 🙂
Mmm…now if you’ll excuse me, I need to start prepping for second-breakfast and elevensies.
