The Hobbit Tag

Lucy at Tangle Webs and Fairy Rings tagged me some time ago for The Hobbit Tag.  Thank you, Lucy- and I apologize for the tardiness.  If I were Gandalf I’d say something about never being late and posting precisely when I mean to… but I’m not Gandalf, so I’d better get on with this.

 

Which hobbit do you relate to most: practical Merry, lighthearted Pippin, loyal Sam, courageous Frodo, or impulsive Bilbo? – Sometimes I feel like Merry.  I like to think I’m practical… but I’m also seen as a bit of a dork.

But for the most part, I think I’m Bilbo.  Although reclusive, I do like company- just stay out of my kitchen, please.  I’m respectable (I hope), but I do have my oddities.  I’m happy to stay home and write, but I need an adventure every now and then.

Are you afraid of spiders?  –Leetle bit.

Are you more likely to be underprepared and not have a handkerchief handy when your allergies flare up or be overprepared and walk all the way to Mordor with and entire set of pots and pans clanging around on your back? – I carry a handkerchief in my purse, actually.  I used to also carry a ruler, and I’m not even sure why. I don’t carry pots and pans- maybe I should.

What is your Elvish name? – Can I be Galadriel?

Are you part of a best friend duo like Frodo and Sam and Merry and Pippin or are you a loner like Bilbo? – I am part of a quartet friendship, in which I am the Merry.  But again, mostly I’m Bilbo.

What size shoe do you wear? – Sigh.  Wide.

If you had a choice would you live in Rohan, Gondor, or the Shire? Or… Mordor?-  Now who in their right mind would choose Mordor?  I choose the Shire!  I’d love one of those houses in a hill, with a garden all around it.  I’d also love to see the hobbit children at play.  Hobbit children are the most adorable little things.

What is the farthest off anyone has ever guessed your age to be? – I must be an elf: without age. No-one seems to be able to peg how old I am, and sometimes I’m not all too sure myself.

Does your personality match your stature or belie it?  –Does my stature even have a personality associated with it?

What is your favorite riddle?
Say you’re a bus driver.  At the first bus stop five people get on.  At the second bus stop three get off, and four get on.  At the third bus stop one person leaves, two come.  At the fourth bus stop, seven more get on.  At the fifth bus stop, half the people get off.  On the sixth bus stop, nothing changes.

Now- what is the bus driver’s name?

Do you wear any rings? – No.  I’m not much for bling.

Would you be more likely to embarrass yourself by making a speech and forgetting what you were going to say or dancing on the table and falling? – I’m more likely to embarrass myself by making a speech and forgetting what I was going to say.  That’s what most of my social interaction is like.

Do you ever feel like butter? – Yes.  I melt in hot weather, northern creature that I am.

If you were a hobbit, what would your name be? –  I think I might be either a Baggins or a Brandybuck.

 Do you like fireworks?  –Love ‘em.

How do you feel about trilogies?  –Love ‘em.  There is something satisfying in having a story come in threes.

What is your favorite poem?  –Clancy of the Overflow!

Do you want to see mountains, Gandalf? – I think I’d go a little squirrelly if I couldn’t see my beloved mountains!  I thrill at the sight of snow on rocky peaks, the way the clouds dapple them with a deeper shade of blue, the silhouettes of cedars as the rain lifts.  Being on a mountain is just as amazing- weaving my way through moss laden trees, watching streams pour down the rocks, and standing on the bluffs, overlooking the panorama.

Can you swim? – I can, but I’d rather not.

You’re Frodo. You need eight fictional companions to journey with you to Mordor. Who do you pick? They cannot be from Lord of the Rings!

My first thoughts on reading this were: I’m Frodo?  Good grief, I’m going to get stabbed, attacked several times, poisoned by a giant spider, and my finger bitten off…

Ah well.  Better put a bold face on it. The plus side is that I get to journey with these awesome people!
In place of Gandalf:  The Grandmother from The Princess and the Goblin.  I know I’d want her special thread as guidance, too.

In place of Sam:  Mina from the Bright Empires Series.  If she can handle the confusion of hopping through time and dimensions, then I’m sure she’d be capable to tackle Mordor.  Besides, maybe she’d bring some of her coffee.  I’d need that!

In place of Merry and Pippen:  Prince Felix from Tales of Goldstone Wood, and Reepicheep from Narnia.  Something tells me these two would get along well together.  They are both rather underestimated, but they still have plenty of heroism…perhaps a bit too much for their own good.

In place of Aragorn: Artham P Wingfeather from the Wingfeather Saga.  Though he may be still haunted from past tragedies, I know I can rely on Artham!

In place of Borimir: Alan Breck Stewart, as portrayed in Kidnapped. I may have to keep a bit of an eye on this Scottish soldier.  But when all’s said and done, he’s a loyal friend as well as a fierce fighter.

In place of Legolas and Gimli:  C3P0 and R2D2.  Having these two would be a touch out of place, I suppose.  But wouldn’t it be awesome?!

What is your Recurring Short Person Dilemma? Not being able to reach high cupboards, getting a stiff neck from talking to tall people, your feet not touching the ground when you sit in a particularly high chair and the circulation being cut off from your legs so that your feet swell to twice their normal size? I’m not bitter or anything, why would you say that?- I’m actually not that short.  But if my littlest bro turns out to be as tall as we predict he will be, I will end up as the squeak of the family.  That miffs me.

If you could marry a kind of food, what would it be?  –Pardon me?  Marry a kind of food?  I’m sorry, but that’s just ridiculous.  I’ll marry tea instead.

 

Now hobbits love getting gifts (tags), and they also love giving them.  I was considering tagging nine people, but I think I’ll leave this one open to all.

  1. Ha! This was awesome, Blue! Very enjoyable reading. I particularly love how you chose a companion for each of the original nine. It sounds like a wonderful fellowship! And C3PO and R2D2 are a grand touch.

    Also…have I honestly been neglecting the internet to such a degree that this was posted a week ago and I only see it now? *sigh*
