I signed up for the Hobbit blog fest over at M Pax's blog way back when. Can't wait to go watch The Hobbit, but it looks like that will have to wait until after I come back from the Big Bad Wolf Sale (boooksssssssssss)

So here are the questions and my answers:

What is your favorite hobbit characteristic/or the one that you think closely resembles you?
Um. I'm short and I eat a lot. It's an Asian thing. ;)

If you could choose between a scrumptious second breakfast and a perilous unexpected journey – which would you prefer?
Breakfast, of course. Though I'd be okay with an unexpected journey if it wasn't perilous.

Have you ever left behind something on a journey (expected or unexpected) and wished you could have it over and over again? (a pocket handkerchief?)
The one thing I always leave behind (or lose on the way) is my hair-tie. Or hair clip. Or rubber band. And then I'll either have to buy one somewhere, or I end up using miscellaneous stuff to keep my hair up. I've become something of an expert in using a pen to bun my hair. =) Ok, I've also used paper clips.

What is your favorite part or quote from the book that you hope will be in the movie?
Um... I was going to say the riddles in the dark... but you know what? I hope that whole exchange in the beginning about the many meanings of "Good morning" makes it into the movie.

Now you're done reading, go and visit the other bloghoppers as well!


  1. The beginning of the book is brilliant. I hope that isn't skipped over.

  2. I'm short, too, and would be all over an adventurous journey w/o peril, too.

    I've done the pencil in the hair thing, but paperclips sounds genius.

    The beginning is what I liked a lot, too, in the shire.

  3. love your hair make-dos!
    and i love both those scenes! should be a nice long movie!

  4. LOL, so many people are relating to the Hobbit shape part. I definitely do.

    Very creative on the hair ties - I'll have to remember the paper clips :)

    The riddle game was awesome - Bilbo is way more clever than me - I wouldn't have figured any of it out. The meaning of Good Morning sounds cool, too.

  5. That is quite a useful talent you have with the hair. Rather like a superpower I say. Hmm, I'm beginning to wonder if anyone's going to pick the journey over breakfast...

  6. Hair clips - wow! That's ingenuity! They definitely has the many meanings of "Good Morning" in the movie and I loved that part! Thanks for joining Hobbit Fest!

  7. Here from the Blogfest. I hear they nailed the Riddles in the Dark scene. Serkis is a legend.

  8. I'll just say this - you are going to be so happy when you see the beginning of the movie :D.

    And the hair ties - oh, do I understand! Though it seems that every time I think I actually have forgotten one, I find one in the most random place.

  9. hair clips, very important! I always try to keep a hair band on my wrist.
