hobbit love

i'm one of those people who likes to have noise in the background all the time. which might be a little odd for an avid reader, but so it goes. i don't necessarily mind reading in the quiet, but i do adore a little soundtrack action.

so whenever i'm just toodling around on the internet (which is admittedly frequent), i like to have something on tv in the background. the problem is, of course, that daytime tv is usually pretty craptastic. which results in me putting on a movie. and over 50% of the time that movie is Lord of the Rings.

no lie - i watch the ENTIRE LotR: extended edition about monthly. upon evaluation over the certainty of that statement, i do believe it is the nerdiest thing about me. which is saying something, given my love of rpgs, board games, Zelda, reading, Arthurian legend...etc.

i legit get CHILLS over and over again when i watch them. like, this morning, i was on disk two of The Two Towers, and i was overwhelmed with the battle at Helm's Deep. like, irl goosbumps and misty eyes.

and if you don't have love for Samwise Gamgee, you are a robot. or heartless. or both. because he is seriously the most heartwarming, lovely, amazing hobbit in all of middle earth...i mean, have you SEEN what a jerk Frodo can be? ugh.

if there were ever any doubters that i'm as nerdy as i claim, let me assure you that the frequency with which i direct quote this movie while watching it and my tears over Theodan surveying the coming army, saying "so it begins", most assuredly validate my claim.

and the best part of all? i'll totally rewatch the series again in like, a month.

gtg, Elrond is reforging Anduril for Aragorn.

Lisa is a gamer, crafter, fangirl, mother, wife and unabashed nerd who is pretty ridiculous and it's best you know that up front. When she's not binge watching Netflix or crafting into the wee hours of the night, you can find her spending a lot of her time on Pinterest and Twitter.
