I'll be the one in the corner with the Elf ears and the Green Invisibility Cloak

If it must be widely acknowledged that FancyPants is Jane Austen’s bitch, than it must also be acknowledged that I am the Tolkien’s Arwen.

Yes, I like Hobbits. I love Wizards. I adore Dragons. I am overwhelmed by Orcs. I am all aflutter over Aslan.

This love of mine has been generally underground. Aside from a conversation in which I roughly and emphatically corrected my husband regarding how the name of a particular Wizard in “Lord of The Rings” was pronounced, and WHY that was important, I rarely unfurl this particular fetish in public. I quietly buy and read my books. I buy the tickets to the movies and I rejoice when they are done well.

And then, I was Outed by this:



For all you wand needs:



Raise a toast to the New Year with these Goblets, then have a sword fight:



Apparently, someone knows, and that someone is watching.

7 Baleful Regards:

maybe it's the super-secret spy doggie from your coworker's desk

(Whispers) Ok Nancy, I am trying not to Laugh out loud...cause she can hear me, but it IS starting to make sense!

The questions that remain to be asked here are: have you picked up the phone and taken out your credit card yet?

Do you know who knows your secret??

I am very open about my love for all things that even smack of fanstasy or lite scifi. The Lord of the Rings trilogy is perfection in cinematic form. And the books aren't too shabby, either.

I am Tolkien's bitch, as well. Don't be ashamed. Revel in your geekitude; I've stopped trying to fight it.

"Don't meddle in the affairs of wizards (or geeks), for they are subtle and quick to anger."

I've never read the Tolkien books but I'm a BIG Harry Potter fan and the Chronicles of Narnia were my constantly re-read companions from about age 7 on.

So I can relate. Sorta.

Your love of the Halfling's leaf has clearly slowed your mind.

I used to talk all kinds of smack about people who liked all this stuff, and THEN, I saw lord of the rings. And it was over for me. I'm totally hooked. I love the movies, the books, harry potter, and now I want to see the Narnia tales. I'll join you in your shame, dawn.
