untitled

The Evil Overlord Kate has done it again with an awesome new tag!  And thanks to the lovely Belle for tagging me:) I mean, come on, who doesn’t want to answer questions related to Lord of the Rings or The Hobbit?

Okay, fine Mr. Orc . . . or Mrs. . . you don’t have to. Anyone else?

Alrighty, Mr. Dark Lord Sauron, settle down. You can sit this one out. *sighs* Anyone else?

YIKES! *throws bucket of water at Smaug* Ok! Ok! Chill, Mr. Dragon. Chill . . . Alrighty, I think that’s it –

OKAY! Fine! You four don’t have to deal with these question, but I am going to move forward now. *clears throat*

Which hobbit do you relate to most: practical Merry, lighthearted Pippin, loyal Sam, courageous Frodo, or impulsive Bilbo?

This is like being asked which Hogwarts house you belong in. Though I’ve taken the test three times and got Slytherin twice, I still think I belong in all of them. But getting about to hobbits, I’d say I was Merry. I can be in on a practical joke and funny and the next I can be serious.

Are you afraid of spiders?

Hmmm. Not really. They make me slightly uncomfortable. Like if they’re in my shower, that’s just not cool. And I don’t really like killing them, so I just capture them and throw them outside.

This past winter I had one living in my room and I was just too lazy to capture it because it was always on the ceiling and so it lived in my room for a few months and then come February I couldn’t see the little guy/gal or find it anywhere. It kind of made me sad . . .

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 an entire set of pots and pans clanging around on your back?

Both. Some days I forget my handkerchief, others I am overly prepared for anything. I mean, packing for vacation or just a few days out of town is a nightmare. What if I need this? What if I need that? What if it’s too cold for this jacket? Is this jacket too thick to pack, but what if it snows? What if I don’t bring enough shampoo? How many pairs of socks do I need? What if one pair gets wet? See? A nightmare!

What is your Elvish name?

I haven’t looked. Give me a sec *heads to Google* . . . . Estel, I believe. And I am probably pronouncing it wrong in my head. Anyone have an elvish pronunciation dictionary?

Are you part of a best friend duo like Frodo and Sam and Merry and Pippin or are you a loner like Bilbo?

Hmm. Again, both. Sometimes I need my space and just because you’re alone doesn’t mean you’re lonely.

What size shoe do you wear?

Either 7 or 7 1/2. I can never remember.

If you had a choice would you live in Rohan, Gondor, or the Shire? Or… Mordor?

THE SHIRE!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I mean, come on! Green hills, farmlands, beautiful flowers, gorgeous sunsets, and sunrises. Small community, fresh air, Gandalf coming to visit every so often with fireworks. Eating all the time. What’s not to love?

What is the farthest off anyone has ever guessed your age to be?

I was 17 and someone thought I was 15. That’s the only instance I can remember. Apparently, I look young for my age . . . which I guess isn’t a bad thing since we’re supposed to want to look younger all the time, especially as we age . . .

Does your personality match your stature or belie it?

I guess yes? Never really thought about it. I’m 5′ 3″ – I want to be 5′ 4″ but my body has apparently decided to stop growing 😦 Well, it’ll grow sideways, just not up.

What is your favorite riddle?

“No man has seen it but all men know it. Lighter than air, sharper than any sword. Comes from nothing, but will fell the strongest armies. Of what do I speak?” ~ Dragon Age Origins. If anyone can guess the answer, I will give you cake! Virtually, of course:)

Do you wear any rings?

I have rings. I have THE ONE RING – and it’s my size – but I don’t usually wear rings in public or even alone. I just have a few. AND THE ONE RING. If I ever got married, my wedding ring would be the only ring I’d wear.

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?

Definitely dancing on a table and falling. My friends and anyone else around would laugh and I would want to crawl back into my hobbit hole.

Do you ever feel like butter?

I guess when it’s extremely humid outside or I’m out in the sun for hours. Or if I put on too much lotion and my hands are really slippery.

If you were a hobbit, what would your name be?

Hi. I’m Christina Thornburrow. Pleasure to meet you 😀

Do you like fireworks?

They are pretty, but I don’t like the loud sound they make.

How do you feel about trilogies?

Love them! If they are done right.

What is your favorite poem?

Naturally “Hope is the Thing with Feathers” by Emily Dickinson. If you have never read this gem of a poem, please do 🙂

“Hope is the thing with feathers –
That perches in the soul –
And sings the tune without the words –
And never stops – at all –
And sweetest – in the Gale – is heard –
And sore must be the storm –
That could abash the little Bird
That kept so many warm –
I’ve heard it in the chillest land –
And on the strangest Sea –
Yet – never – in Extremity,
It asked a crumb – of me.”

Do you want to see mountains, Gandalf?

I love mountains! But somewhat lazy to climb them. So it will all depend on the weather and the company I have with me.

Can you swim?

Yes, I can! I love swimming, but I don’t do it often enough.

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!

Can I be Sam instead? No? Ugh, fine. Not that I have anything against Frodo, I just like Sam better and he’s my favorite.

Let’s see . . .

  1. Edmund Pevensie
  2. Stitch
  3. Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III
  4. Alistair from Dragon Age
  5. Commander Shepard (FemShep)
  6. The Hulk
  7. My Dovahkiin from Skyrim (She’s a cat and I named her Purtunia)
  8. Merlin (Colin Morgan)

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?

Definitely not being able to reach stuff. I need a chair and then a box on the seat of the chair, a small ladder on top, then another box, and then I can finally reach the Lucky Charms my mom or dad hid away in the cupboard.

If you could marry a kind of food, what would it be?

Nothing. Because I would murder my spouse, and I wouldn’t be able to live with myself after that . . . 😦

I hope you enjoyed this! I sure enjoyed answering these awesome questions! Now, I tag the following: Ellie, May, and Ivy & Em!  I hope Kate doesn’t mind in I add in a couple of questions? Pretty please, Kate??
